Poetic Licence Spring/Summer '09

After purchasing almost every style in last seasons Irregular Choice collection, I've found the S/S range a bit of a disappointment. The IC website is being revamped though, so I'm perhaps only seeing part of the collection elsewhere. Their sister brand Poetic Licence however, are going from strength to strength in my opinion. To me, they were the 'safer' version of IC and had more appeal to older women, than young, fashionable 20-30 somethings. Although they aren't overly crazy these days, they are making really beautiful and unique designs. Above is a floral satin sandal with gold, cork heel £65 (John Lewis or Tinfish Shoes), below (so cute and retro), wooden semi-wedge peep-toe platform, floral laceup shoe £80 (Bullfrogs).

The Cocktail platforms and Vibrant boots were the highlight for me last season and you may find them reduced in your local TK Maxx or buy them from This seasons sees a more elegant shape and gorgeous vintage style floral prints. Below brown peep-toe with leopard print heel, £60 (John Lewis), black peep-toe with red heel £60, ditsy print peep-toe with red heel and blue trim £60 (love, love, love) and red peep-toe with 'real' rose detail £60 (gorgeous), (also available in black, all DR Shoes).


  1. poetic licence aren't for older women!!!! they are just a bit more retro than the irregular choice stuff and alot more feminine (floral prints etc.) btw do u have any idea when their website will be up and running i NEED new shoes... p.s. check out the high heel gladiator sandals from poetic licence on the ones in gold are to die for!

  2. Thanks for your comment. Those gladiators are very un-Poetic Licence in my opinion, unusual for them to be all the one colour without any print. The 'Gem' pair too, I never would have guessed they were PL. I believe the IC website is re-opening in June if I remember correctly. I've certainly missed them-I used to log on every day!
