Currently Loving: Polka Dots

9 Feb

The Polka dot is grabbing my attention right now. It’s the classic print that makes its return to the fashion spotlight over and over again. If you’re a polka dot lover, there’s something to get excited about because you’re about to start seeing some pretty polka dot pieces in the shops again.

While it’s not a major trend for Spring, there were enough pieces from designers in the Resort 2011 collections to create a mini trend.

I picked out my favourites from Resort and checked out some pretty polka dot pieces to stick in the wishlist.

Now there are dozens of ways to wear this trend and it’s exceptionally beautiful when combined with a bright, solid, preferably contrasting colour. I’ll be very careful combining it with another print, the objective is not to look like a clown but to retain that sleek chic style. The best way to wear with another print is to combine with larger prints a la Marc Jacobs (Resort 2011). Just make sure the style works before you walk out that door, lol.

Check out some beautiful pieces to get you fantasizing.

Louboutin Spring Summer Tour

23 Jan

The fusion between art and fashion is beautiful. It’s like a collision of two creative forces and quite exciting to see. One designer who constantly makes this happen is Christian Louboutin, all you need do is check out his fantasy themed site and you’ll see what I mean.

For the coming season he collaborated with photographer Khuong Nguyen to make a stunning Spring/Summer 2011 lookbook tagged Louboutin Spring Summer Tour. The concept gives life to the shoes and makes them take on a whole new persona, more or less like ‘the Louboutins day out.’

Still loving Louboutin

14 Jan

Christian Louboutin attained cliché status and while he’s still got his loyal fan base, he’s not quite as ‘hot right now’ as he was many months ago, but he’s still got shoe game. He has the art of the high heel wrapped around his pinky finger and totally love him for that.

Well, anyone who created these fabulous shoes is worthy of being loved.
