Are you free on the 22nd of March? I hope so! Clarks are inviting shoe lovers and aficionados alike to an evening of fashion indulgence at the Metropolitan London Hotel, coined as the “Clarks High Heel Society“. From 7-10pm, a bounty of beauty treatments, bubbly, canapés, and an exclusive preview of the Spring/Summer 2012 collection are set to make this an evening of indulgence like no other.

And you have the chance to come, too! Clarks are hosting a competition which gives 50 lucky guests the chance to spend the evening of luxury in the Metropolitan London’s penthouse suite, where all attendees (me included!) will be treated to a trend talk through of the SS12 collection, personal styling tips and talks from top fashion stylists, a range of free beauty treatments whilst enjoying bubbly and canapés. To add to the star treatment, there will even be paparazzi on hand to capture the arrivals in style.

But wait, there’s more! (Just imagine me saying it next to a car sales lot…)

On your way home, you will also receive a luxury COMO Shambhala Urban Escape gift bag which will include products used by the in-house spa, and – the icing on the cake – a pair of your very own SS12 Clarks shoes! One lucky winner will also blag a stay at the Metropolitan London for a luxury two night break (including a full spa treatment at the COMO Shambhala Urban Escape!) and dinner at Michelin-starred restaurant, Nobu.

Just by entering, you have the option to receive a 20% discount to spend on the SS12 women’s collection! Do it now!

Shoe Addicts Anonymous Halle BerryHalle Berry has been cast to play the lead role for the film adaption of Beth Harbison’s fictional novel “Shoe Addicts Anonymous” next fall.

From the back cover of the book the plot is summarized as:

“Four very different women…all addicted to shoes.

Lorna is up to her eyeballs in debt but can’t help bidding for the newest Jimmy Choos on eBay. Helene is unhappily married to a politician who keeps threatening to cancel her credit cards. Sandra pays her shoe bills by working as a phone sex operator (Halle’s alleged role). And Joss is a nanny who has found herself in a family from hell and will do just about anything to get out of the house on her night off.

When they come upon a classified advert, inviting shoe lovers to a weekly shoe-swap, each one jumps at the chance to meet fellow addicts. But none of them realise that they will come away with much, much more than just a new pair of kitten heels…’

Consumerist chick flick for the win? I’m not convinced. I think this gorgeous Oscar-winner is going to alienate some of her fanbase.
