Finding flat footwear with the same kitschy glam appeal as skyscraper heels is quite a challenge for retro fashion fiends. These Darling Bow Jelly Flats are a rare exception, capturing a retro fifties-style aesthetic while keeping a comfortable height.
Made from a soft, flexible jelly plastic, they're more comfortable than the jelly sandals we all once wore. The grosgrain bow adds some cutesy appeal along with the high shine finish achieved by the unusual material.

It's a building that divides opinion like no other, so some of you might be tempted to let this 15th floor apartment in Trellick Tower, others will no doubt run a mile.
Designed by Erno Goldfinger in the late 60s for Greater London Council (many of the flats still have council tenants), it's one of the finest examples of Brutalist architecture in the UK. Indeed, it is grade II listed because of that very fact, with those stunning views from the 15th floor (over half way up) a rather nice added bonus.
