Lace up Friday: Foot candy from Asos

26 Nov

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.

Best of the Velvet dress pack by Versus

17 Nov

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.

Style Item: The High Heeled Brogues

14 Nov

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.

One more way to style that dress

9 Nov

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.

Glam structure to the max: Palmer & Sons No 18 Leather Rucksack

28 Oct

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.

Style Item: Ruthie Davis ‘Robot’ Sandal

12 Oct

Not only have I got love for the charming designer, but i adore this avant-garde label. Ruthie Davis is the go to label for fierce glam, edgy, sophisticated and subtly futuristic shoes. After turning out those spiked and studded shoes in previous collections, Spring 2011 is minimalist featuring wood, lucite and the signature heels. Gorgeous! I could use a pair of both.

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.
