Lizard Skin Shoes!

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

Lizard skin Kirkwood ShoeThese are some fabulous heels!! Produced by Nicholas Kirkwood (who prides himself in making works of art for feet) has lived up to his flawless reputation once agian with these lizard skin shoes that aren’t far off a masterpiece! The squared off toe and unusual platform sole is very unique, however it is the lizard skin panels that really set these shoes apart from the rest! The silver stripes really compliment the grey lizard skin; they also remind me of adidas stripes on a trainer, which gives them a sporty feel.

There is a zip fastening that runs up the back of the shoe to ensure easy foot access, in case you were wondering how on earth you are meant to wear these shoes!

These shoes can be purchased online today from Browns fashion for £550.00.

Sports Inspired Outfit!

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

Rick Owens Jacket and Margiela Zip SkirtI love the combination of these two garments together; they make a great casual outfit with a cool sporty edge! The jacket is a Rick Owens creation; it is a patchwork jacket featuring panels of contrasting fabrics such as metallic, denim and fur trims. The detailing on this piece is amazing, there is so much work involved; I particularly like the knot detail at the front of the jacket. This jacket costs £1,780.00!

To compliment the jacket I have chosen an effortlessly chic skirt by Maison Martin Margiela, you may recognise the zip design from the must have leather leggings that are causing a stir amongst fashion followers around the globe! This skirt costs £300, it is a great staple piece; it can be dressed down for day wear with thick black tights and boots, then for night time it can be worn with bare legs and some towering heels!

You can buy these items from Browns fashion online.

Over-the-knee Flat Boots!

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

River Island Over-the-Knee BootsOver-the-Knee boots are soooo in for winter, which is great as they are extra warm!
So far I have only seen high heeled Over-the-Knee boots, that’s why I was so excited to see River Island has produced a flat version, which is much more practical for every day wear!

The tan leather and tassel detail is very in keeping with the western look this season; I think they would look fab with some skinny jeans and a western check style shirt!

The only downfall about over-the-knee boots is that they tend to be more expensive as they obviously use up more leather! This pair of boots cost £109.99, which I think is quite reasonable! Buy online today from River Island!

Expensive and Clashy!

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

Dior Beaded Bubble DressThis is one of the most expensive dresses I have seen in a long time and I’m afraid it is also one of the most hideous too! It is a Dior creation and costs a whopping £5,430.00! But forget the price for a second; it is the colour combination of this dress that worries me most! Red and Pink, ewww! I’m sorry they just don’t go together, talk about clashing!

It is a shame as I do think this dress could look quite cute, maybe if it was all in black or black and white, but red and pink is a huge no no! The sequin bow detail is extremely cute and the bubble shape skirt is fun and flirty! Just change the colour Dior!

For a closer look, check out Browns Fashion!

Luxurious Leather!

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

Karen Millen Ruffled Leather JacketNow this is the statement leather of the season! It is just stunning! The asymmetric front and waterfall ruffle detail is a key feature of the jacket, making it perfectly in keeping with fall’s gothic trend.

Leather jackets always tend to take on a hard edgy biker look but this jacket is different; the ruffles portray a very feminine gothic feel, which I find really unique adding to its appeal!

Every detail on this jacket has been carefully considered, take for example the pleated sleeves and shoulder yoke detail, this is one luxurious leather! Every feature shows that this jacket has been designed and made with love. A fine example of Karen Millen’s exquisite leather work.

Buy yours online today for £350!

Valli Dress!

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

Valli Cream Ruffle Sleeve DressI am in love with this cream Giambattista Valli dress! It just oozes with glamour and sophistication! The frill fluted sleeves are a fab contrast against the figure hugging shape of the dress. It would look great teamed with tan accessories, to give it that extra classy feel and to dress it down for day wear.

It is a great length, the hemline falls just below the knee making it easy to wear and extremely flattering for all body shapes and sizes!

The dress is £775 and can be purchased from Browns fashion online.

The 'Boyfriend Belt'!

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

ASOS Boyfriend BeltThe ‘Boyfriend belt’, well you can see how this belt got its name as it looks very similar to my boyfriends belt!!

I actually really like this belt; it has a cool vintage feel to it and is a nice change to the very popular chunky waisted belts that are everywhere at the moment! I like the way this belt loops around itself for a very effortlessly cool look!

Thin belts are making a huge comeback and I think this is great as they are far more elegant than the thick chunky belts; they will also be much more slimming than the chunky hipster belts that when worn seems to cruelly add on an inch to your hips!

So if you don’t have a boyfriend to nick his belt why don’t you buy yours today from ASOS for a very reasonable £15!

Transitional Maxi!

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

Selected Femme MaxiI am a sucker for a maxi dress; I just think they’re so elegant; the only problem is they’re restricted to summer! Well that’s what I thought until I saw this leopard print maxi dress by Selected Femme on ASOS, the longer length kimono sleeves means it has added warmth to see us into fall!

Don’t get me wrong this is certainly not a winter item but it does mean you can wear it without it being blistering hot, which is great! Maybe wear a cream long sleeve top underneath for added warmth. Buy yours today from ASOS for £129.99.

Body suits!

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

Gem Body by BoutiqueOk, body suits are great if you’ve got the figure, otherwise they show up all flaws, however when worn right they can look pretty damn hot!

I particularly love this white gem body by Boutique, the chunky statement gems make it perfect for an evening! If you’re daring enough wear with some ultra skinnies for a sleek catsuit silhouette. If this all sounds a bit too figure hugging for your liking why not wear it casually under a chunky knit, this would look great, leave the cardi open to see a sneaky peep of bling!

Buy yours today from Topshop for £30!

Unique Shoe Boot!

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

Unique Lace Up Shoe BootThese are great aren’t they? They’re an unusual mix of court shoes, sandals and ankle boots to create one delicious pair of shoes!

The Unique lace up ankle boot is a key statement shoe for fall; you can happily buy these shoes in the knowledge that everything you wear with these shoes will look utterly fabulous! Brown is a great autumn colour, however if you’re leaning more towards the very hot gothic trend this winter, fear not they do come in black!

Team with a cosy knit dress and thick knit tights for an effortlessly chic look! Buy yours today from Topshop for £105!
