“Start with the shoes, and work upwards.” This is Cup Week fashion advice from Lenore Farrelly of Wink Shoe Store when falling in love with a show-pony pair.
The boutique shoe store is gorgeous, with local-designed clothing and accessories to complement the unique range of footwear.
“Colourful as a candy shop,” is how Lenore describes this season’s fabulous shoes. Bold colours are hot to trot, such as hot pink and orange together.
“We curate our own collection of footwear with that point of difference, and comfort. If your shoes are dressy and exciting, they become the statement piece, dressing up a simple outfit. It’s important they’re super comfortable – we’ll be asking a lot of our feet, if you don’t have to think about them, you’ll enjoy the day more.”
New Zealand designer Kathryn Wilson is a Wink favourite with her gorgeous detailing, beautiful and super comfortable designs.
A winner in the hand-picked clothing ranges is the beautiful brand Briarwood.
This season includes a gorgeous poppy print in various styles, or vivid apple-green skirt with hot pink leopard spots. Accessorise with fabulous jewellery from Elk, Four Corners, and Antler.

Finding that perfect pair of shoes to wear at the race-track can be a frustrating process, especially if you’ve filled long, fruitless hours trudging from shop to shop with nothing to show for it but blisters and disappointment.
Is it too much to ask for a pair of shoes that both flatter our feet and go with our race-day outfit; that draw lovely compliments; that are comfortable, and can be worn more than once? One shoe retailer ticking all these boxes is WINK Shoe Store – it’s a riot of colour as the change of season brings the dressiest, comfiest shoes in a glorious spring palette.
Kathryn Wilson showcases slides in black and white stripes, lollipop plaids, leopard-print and shimmering silver, while sandals in pastel pinks and blues, butter yellows, moonlight whites and dreamy florals feature in the Miss Wilson range.
Stegmann, Django and Juliette, Oli, and Top End keep tootsies cool in mesh and cut-out designs, and Eos and Origini flaunt fabulous low-heeled and platform-wedged sandals.
Once you’ve found your perfect shoes, cast an eye over the small but select clothing collection, featuring labels like the romantic Briarwood, the edgy Elk and the avant-garde C.Reed, all renowned for their commitment to creating quality, unique garments constructed from beautiful fabrics to make you stand out in the crowd.
