Last year two out of place individuals tapped on my shop window when I was closed. I mouthed, “please come back tomorrow”, but they persisted. It turns out it was David E Talbert and his producer wife, Lyn wanting to tell me they loved my shop and to chat.

He was filming a new Netflix movie - Jingle Jangle starring Forest Whitaker and by that point everything had been cast, (and not actually realising I was an actress and singer) wanted me to be in it.


Two weeks ago I am looking through the articles and came across this - me on the left in one of the promo shots, didn’t even expect that! t was a great set to be on with some of it on our very own historic Elm Hill! Thanks David and Lyn

Many do not know that before I became a shoe designer, I was a professional actress and opera singer. The first ever company I joined out of drama school was The Red Rose Chain Theatre Company based in Suffolk.

Forward several years and I am back treading their boards once again. Due to Covid, this production will be streamed online in a family friendly format. I play The Queen of Hearts alongside some other fabulous actors. And yes, I will be wearing a pair of my own shoe designs!


Don't worry, I am very much creating wonderful client shoes at the same time!

After all this time through the months of the pandemic, we have all been wondering when we can re-open our businesses. What a sorry sight the stranded high street began to look. Locked up hair salans, boarded up pubs and empty shops.


But moving on 3 months - Milly J Shoes is thrilled to say that it has decided to re-open on July 4th! We so look forward to seeing you then.


We've missed you!

Covid-19 has seen a surge in online chat portals, not least of all zoom. Before the pandemic, I was reticent to use any of these platforms, preferring to chat in person. But, like everyone else, I have had to accommodate the use of such tools!


With zoom in mind, Women's Institute, Golden Triangle branch invuted me to do a talk on my life and journey. It was a fun filled evening, as not only did I give a talk, but I asked the ladies to prepare their own lockdwon shoe designs and their favourite childhood shoes.


More online talks to come!
