Celine Senequier Platforms

Sunday, January 27th, 2008

Celine Senequier PlatformsI love the new, yet strange platforms dominating the fashion print this season and these Celine Senequier leather platforms are one of the funkiest.

The tobacco leather platform shoes have an interesting square toe and a part silver heel! With cut out and strap detailing the high heeled platform is unique and stylish. With heels like these this season it’s not like you need to wild with your clothing. A plain and simple but chic outfit would go perfectly with these shoes, which will make them stand out even more than they already would. Perhaps tights and an LBD would be ideal? Let’s hope they have the comfort factor.

Get your pair of Celine platforms at Net-A-Porter, priced at £410.

Sunday, January 27th, 2008

Armani BanglesI’ve always loved a bangle or two and now we are entering the spring season, it seems our favourite designers love them too! Chunky bangles stacked up the arm seem to be one of the key ways to accessorize this summer and for once the more the better!

If you love your designer labels Armani have also produced a range of bangles emblazoned with their logo, they are fun but definitely not for the discreet!
