It's no secret that I like little buttons, and especially so when they don't serve any practical purpose, and simply exist to adorn and delight - ah, the decadence!! So when UGG Australia asked us to customise a pair of their iconic sheepskin boots to raise money for The Smith Family, the natural choice was to sew them all over with pointless-but-for-pretty tiny mother of pearl buttons. And bows, natch. Because if there's one thing I love more than a button it's a bow. So there you go.

I also love an UGG boot, because my kitchen floor is arctic right now.

My boots, along with treats by designers including Nicola Finetti, Hannah McNicol, The Cassette Society and Life With Bird, will be auctioned off on line on July 14 -15 to raise money for the charity's Learning for Life initiative.
