Hot Collaboration!

Sunday, March 30th, 2008

Marios Shwab and PatulloWow have I got a collaboration for you! Hot British designer; Marios Shwab has recently joined forces with shoe guru Scorah Patullo to produce an eccentric and unique collection that is just too tempting, so if you have a shoe fetish I suggest you look away now!

Marios and Scorah Patullo have worked together to produce 8 new styles for spring/summer 08, heres what they have to say about the collection:

“Think the usual uber-sexy restrained burlesque but combined with typical Greek sandal styling.”

If you ask me this is a winning combination as the shoes are divine! Usually I wouldn’t even dream of wearing a pair of white shoes but this pair is an exception to the rules! I am absolutely in love with this stunning pair of sandals that have an interesting futuristic/sporty look! A prominent feature of this collection is the cut out heel; original but how strong are these heels?!!

Buy both pairs today from Scorah Pattullo online for £350 each!

Metal Disc Belt!

Saturday, March 29th, 2008

Barcoo BeltI was just browsing Reiss’s internet site when I came across this fabulous belt! The ‘Barcoo’ belt (as they call it) is just what I’ve been looking for; a day belt that oozes sophistication and will beautifully embellish every outfit!

The colour is neutral and will go with most things, however if you’re more of a gold goddess, fear not! This belt also comes in white with gold metal discs, perfect for the summer! I am just hoping that this belt will come with a matching colossal clutch; I can just imagine it beautifully embellished with the metal discs, oh and maybe some sandals too!

Unfortunately at the moment all I can find is the belt, which is £55 and can be purchased online, however I will be keeping my fingers crossed for the matching shoes and clutch!


Feeling Rosy

Wednesday, March 26th, 2008

giuseppe-zanotti-satin-rose-sandals.jpgI am super excited by a new pair of sandals I came across when planning my summer shoe collection today. It’s this pair of Giuseppe Zanotti Satin Rose sandals. It may be because I have never seen anything like them before but I just cannot stop longing for them.

The silver leather flat thong sandal has a red and white satin rose attached to the top strap which is so feminine, chic and dare I say romantic. Also they are ideal for both day and night so what are you waiting for?

At £320 they are quite pricey for sandals but comfort and beauty doesn’t often come cheap. Get yourself a pair at Net A Porter online now.


The Bag Of 2008

Wednesday, March 26th, 2008

prada-fairy-bag.jpgI know it’s only nearing April but I have found the bag of the year so far and what I think will be the ‘it’ bag of the year. It’s the new Prada Printed Buckskin Handbag with fairy tale illustration and it is adorable!

The limited edition number has been a hit already and was only available in a limited number of stores. To make matters worse, along with the scarce amount of bags available you will probably be wait listed before it even comes back in to stock. However if you are lucky enough to get your hands on one, treasure it as it is a one off beauty that will bring great envy from the fashion savvy.

The fairy tale illustration bag is £1050. Visit your nearest Prada store or the Prada website for more information on the bag.

Ravishing In Raspberry

Wednesday, March 26th, 2008

talma-ted-baker.jpgTed Baker has consistently produced some fantastic collections and I always find myself craving at least two key pieces. This season one of them is this Ted Baker Embroidery Anglais Baby Doll Dress.

The dress called Talma is cute and summery, made out of a silk mix and has a buttoned down placket at the front of the dress and a frilly embroidered hem. The raspberry colour is a key colour this season and the feminine touches make this dress the perfect summer piece. Wear in the day or night with some cute flat sandals and a lovely oversized bag.

A Balenciaga Beauty

Wednesday, March 26th, 2008

balenciaga-arena-city-bag.jpgI’m still infatuated with the bright bags and Balenciaga’s timeless classic city bag is now available in magenta … all hail Balenciaga.

The Arena City Bag will make a fantastic statement this summer not only from being one of the most famous bags to hit the fashion world because of the endless A-list owners but because its so bright and beautiful it will stand out from any outfit you wear, unless of course you go for the full magenta outfit. Spacious, with two lengthy shoulder straps and studded detail … Sounds like a good investment.

Order your Balenciaga Arena City Bag from Browns Fashion online now for £930.


All The Glitz & Glamour You Need

herve-leger-paillette-covered-bandage-dress.jpgBecome the hit of the party in this Black Paillette Overlay Bandage Dress by Herve Leger. Sparkly little numbers like these look like dresses you would expect to see on a celebrity at a red carpet event but this is ideal for any black tie event you may have planned.

The sequin embellished dress has a square neck and panel detailing throughout proving sparkle is still in season. Also the body-con trend has lingered in the fashion world over the last few seasons and this dress captures it at its best.

Get your Herve Leger Paillette covered bandage dress at Net A Porter for the pricey £1,575.


Perfect In Prada

Wednesday, March 26th, 2008

prada-nappa-clutch-bag.jpgSome more amazing bright coloured clutch purses have come to my attention and this time they are Prada. I have not always caught on to the Prada style, I often follow smaller designers or vintage stores but I am in awe at Prada’s spring/summer collection. Florals and bright colours … perfect!

The clutch in question is the Prada Nappa Clutch with asymmetrical motif and polished steel hardware. Available in five different colours, papaya, peony, violet, black and turquoise the cute clutch is fabulous for summer and ideally it would be great to have all of them in each colour. However at £545 each I guess it will stay a dream for me.

Get yours at your nearest Prada store or visit the Prada website for more information.
