I’ve been thinking about lace up shoe boots lately. They give that extra edge to an outfit, i especially love it when they are worn with dresses, floral print dresses to be precise.
So this is my Sumptuous Friday lace up boots feast. All these fabulous shoes can be found on the Asos site.

This gorgeous plum dress by Versus is the best interpretation I’ve seen of the Velvet trend. Less is more with the Velvet bustier and strip detail instead of a full on Velvet dress. The contrasting pleated skirt and leather straps also make it work in exquisite fashion.
Brogues have been back as a favourite style staple for ages and I’ve literally despised them all through. Simply because I wasn’t going to wear the flat ‘androgynous’ things. But then, I couldn’t deny that they looked very stylish. You could wear brogues with a number of outfits and they’d all look super stylish. Jeans, tee and brogues, check; floral dress, blazer and brogues, check; jumpsuit, cropped jacket and brogues, check.
Now shoes that versatile deserve to be in the fashion closet. So I’m ‘very late in the day’ jumping on the brogues bandwagon but heeeey, I still won’t do the flats. For the heel lovers like me, there are tons of options.
Office has got this style in 8 different colours.
Then there are several heel lengths and colours and shapes, even wedges if you please.
These items could easily pass off as wearable art. Simply breathtaking laser cut pieces from the Asos Black collection, especially love the dress.

The stylist at Asos did an amazing job in styling (no pun intended) this understated 2-in-1 pencil dress. It was combined with a blazer, floppy hat, tights and black high heels. The monochromatic theme of the accessories made sure the dress still stood out.
The gorgeous styling transformed the dress from basic to sleek chic in a flash.

I’ve been ‘in the market’ for the perfect shoe boots and these ones from Dune really grabbed my attention. They’re available in black and red, and there’s an enticing 50% off the red colour. If you like too, check them out on the Dune site.
Dune Sasa £45

They will work wonders for your personal style. Transforms you into sleek chic in nano seconds.
Ditch the flats and stock up on the heels galfriend.
Now this is one beautiful work of art.
Made with lush havana brown leather with brass rivets and a handmade cocobolo handle, what says luxury luggage better than this. You could argue how much the bag would hold; it was designed to carry laptops, cameras and books, which is perfectly fine. But who says it can’t be put to even more glamorous use.
Structure is definitely beautiful.
You can see more or grab one of these beauties on the No 18 Leather Rucksack on the Palmer & Sons site.
I love how Prada has these metallic florals on most of the pieces in the fall collection. This bag is simply gorgeous.

This is the most gorgeous bag I’ve seen Lulu Guinness create. I mean I like the lip clutches and all but this is just adorable. Nothing says ladylike much better than this. The stripe small wanda bag is part of the A/W 2010 collection.

Refreshingly different, a unique take on the military trend. Different from the ubiquitous cropped military jacket.

For Spring 2011, Balenciaga decided to do flat loafer-ish shoes. They’re cool, chunky but cool.
But the Fall 2010 shoe collection, absolutely gorgeous, can’t get over them.
