Shoesday: Habbot x The Design Files Open House 2014

Greetings BusiChic!

Today’s Shoesday Tuesday feature looks at the shoes I’ll be wearing at work later this week.

The Design Files is a much-loved interior design blog run by Lucy Feagins. Every year Lucy runs The Design Files Open House where she converts a home into the ultimate Australian home by decking out with the works of local designers. I’ve visited the houses that have popped up across Melbourne’s suburbs every year since they first opened so you can imagine how excited I am to be working with the team this year!

As if that wasn’t enough of a perk, Annie Abbott of habbot shoes who we’ve had as a guest on the Melbourne in Fashion podcast, has come on-board and created a capsule collection in colours that will complement the interiors! I love it when fashion and interior design cross-over so you can imagine how excited I am about the two styles that the team will be wearing; “Door” is a perforated brogue style and “Bell” (see what Annie did there?!) a loafer that come in the following mesmerising colourways:


_I4C9220 _I4C9223 _I4C9225

_I4C9218 _I4C9214 _I4C9216


Which habbot shoes which you choose?

To let you in on just how seriously I take this fashion/interior design thing, I can confide in you that I made my choice based on how much I wish to contrast with what looks like the emerald-jade-green wall that has been.

For those of you who won’t be able to make it to the house, the capsule collection will also be available for sale at habbot stores (online also in limited units) with 10% of the sales from the shoes will be donated by habbot to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre’s (Melbourne) Christmas Appeal in line with the Open House donation.

What’s not to love?
