Ask the Shopping Doctor.

All cashed up and nowhere to go? Want to shop but not sure where the best bargains are? You need to pay a visit to the Shopping Doctor...Q: I've bought shoes everywhere from Harrods to Harvey Nicks and am completely addicted to posh shoes. Now, I want a handmade pair. Any ideas?

Mrs F, PendoylanA: Oh, we know the problem, dear Mrs F! So many pukkah shoes, so little time! Handmade is THE way to go if you have the money, of course - and the chances of bumping into someone in Sainsbury's wearing the same pair is virtually nil.

Anello&Davide is one of the oldest and frankly, poshest shoe brands in the country. They make shoes for the Queen, are credited for inventing the famous Chelsea boot for The Beatles and also made killer heels for Marilyn Monroe. These days, they're loved by celebs such as Sophie Wessex, Denise Van Outen and Melinda Messenger.

They have shops in Bath and London and can make anything from bridal shoes to va-voom eveningwear by hand, and do ready-to-wear shoes too. Anello&Davide prices start at pounds 60, find out more at www.handmadeshoes.co.uk
