Givenchy 'Sandal Boot'

Tuesday, April 29th, 2008

Givenchy Sandal BootI Love these sandal boots from Givenchy! The sandal boot is so hot right now, you would be a fool to miss out on such a great look!

Extremely versatile, this style of shoe can be worn in the summer and winter thanks to its part sandal, part boot shape! They also look great with skirts or trousers, and are a perfect way to create a more edgier look! I particularly love the oversize buckle on this pair of Givenchy sandal boots; the black leather and metal buckle give them a cool rock chick look and are bound to make a HUGE statement!

If you have fallen in love with these shoes like myself, best start saving as they cost a whopping £600! You can check out Stylefinder for more information on where to buy them from.


Kate Moss New Website!

Tuesday, April 29th, 2008

Kate Moss New SiteAfter four extremely successful collections it’s not surprising that Kate Moss’s fifth season designing for Topshop has earned her, her very own website!

Kate’s fifth collection has inspirations from all over the globe referencing Ibiza, Miami, India and many more these influences from around the world has earned it its title of The Boho Traveller.

It’s another great collection from Kate and I think it is a fantastic move to create a whole website dedicated to her Topshop collaboration. The site is still in its early stages but I’m sure when it is complete there will be some great extras on there, maybe some style tips from Miss Moss? That would be great!

I have fallen in love with Anna Sui’s new collection, the designer manages to combine vintage courture with modern day trends and has really hit the nail on the head with these catwalk styles. My favourite piece is the Anna Sui Deco print dress (left), it is a fab party frock and reasonably priced at £225. The two-tone print is unique and puts curves in all the right places!

Next up is the Anna Sui Bouquet print dress (£285), a floaty feminie design with popular floral prints inspired by spring. Then we have the Anna Sui Deco Trees sleeveless dress, a perfect dress for day and night in the summery months. At £250 it is all quite reasonably priced and would look fabulous with a black clutch and black sandals.

The Anna Sui Layered gingham dress (£295) is a perfect mix of smokey grey and purple tones. The design is unique with transparent material on the upper sleaves and above the chest. Lastly we have this gorgeous Anna Sui Heart detail skirt which looks fab with a tight tucked in t-shirt and sexy platforms. The high waist is extremely flattering and at £160 its not out of reach.
