Nothing beats the perfect shoe silhouette

9 Jun

I can’t believe i haven’t blogged in so many weeks! So so heartbreaking! But hey, it’s one day at a time i guess, never too late to jump right back in. I plan to express my fashionable side as much as possible from now on. Scouts honour!

So, my eyes dropped to the silhouette of my shoes today and i couldn’t help the fuzzy feeling. I love that beautiful arch at the sole of a shoe, especially when it curves into a slim and generously high heel. We’ll be going for a 5 to 6 inch heel there *wink wink*

It’s even more exquisite when it has an unusual shape, I love love love YSL shoes for that, Miu Miu has some stunning shapes as well. We all kinda agree that Christian Louboutin has nailed heel perfection to an art, so we’ll always pay homage to the maestro.

Wella! I decided to go-a-drooling and picked out some goose bumps worthy heels from these amazing shoe artists. Drool with me please, lol.

Dream YSL Pumps: The look for less?

31 Mar

It’s no news that I’ve had a long standing crush on YSL pumps, especially the Cobalt blue suede. At over £400 a pop, it’s understandable why i haven’t stocked up on all the beautiful colours of this beloved shoe.

So I stumbled upon these shoes on Asos.com  yesterday. And wow, they present a very convincing alternative to my dream shoes.  At a fraction of the cost, i just might be stocking up on these while I get rich enough to buy my YSLs…and it even comes in Cobalt Blue. Hmmmm….

Love, Want, Need: Spring 2011 Style Pieces

11 Jan

Spring 2011 fashion has started hitting stores, with all the last season sales fever dwinding down.

I am especially loving the electric colour – pinks, blues, orange, green, think colours of the rainbow almost –  and 70s inspired trends – wide leg pants, wedges, wide brim hats. It’s going to be fun for fashion, already looking forward to all the street style pics.

I’ve just made an early pick of my (mainly designer) faves, watch this space for high street alternatives of these trends.

Paris Fashion Week: My best of Yves Saint Laurent

5 Oct

Love the sleek chic look of Yves Saint Laurent and of course I was looking out for the shoes. There were lovely wedges and I especially love the ones with the elongated back.

Ultra Stylish YSL Pumps

27 Sep

Absolutely nutters about YSL pumps. It’s not typical me to get one style or item in multiple colors but i would definitely get all YSL pumps ever made in every color. These shoes are collector’s items, love the shape, the heels, the vibrant colors, the different textures: patent, suede, nappa leather. The fact that they have hidden platforms also make them chic and easy to wear. Fantastic pumps, ode to fabulous pristine style!
