Some Dolce goodies

Really no write up required. Some really nice pieces from Dolce & Gabbana's Summer and Spring 2010 collection. Enjoy!

Gucci bags and shoes

It had been a while since I had gotten excited about anything Frida had done. That changed when I started scouring their S/S 2010 collection. I will be showcasing many of their pieces (specifically dresses and complete look) but to get you started I wanted to showcase one of my favorite bags along with a couple of ankle booties.
Watch this space for more Gucci looks!

Signor Casadei, you do sparkle!

I have received a lot of feedback regarding platform shoes recently. Some ladies love them while others strongly show their dislike towards them. Personally I am a big fan of most of the platforms out there and these ones from Casadei are just gorgeous.
Casadei is still run as a family business in Italy and their shoes are not too widely available which would make any pair you own fairly unique. I absolutely love the sparkles on the heel and sole and the Satin Fabric of the shoes adds an alluring shine to any outfit.
These are my faves at the moment

Fendi Beauties

Over the past years I have seen very few Fendi pieces that I have liked. I am not a big fan of the logo or the aesthetic design of many of their pieces. These shoes however are clearly an exception!

Beautiful color, sharp and clean shape, and a super sexy bow all add up to make an exceptional pair of heels. There are a lot of white heels coming on to the market for Summer/Spring but these really are creme de la creme of the bunch

Lotta Stensson Dress

Keeping in line with the previous article, here is another lovely summer/beach/garden party/doing shots in Cabo dress that I really like. FYI ladies the fringe cut at the bottom of the dress has a hypnotic effect on the male mind and will allow you to control actions/thoughts of the poor ol boys

Kimberly Ovitz Dress

Dubai weather hits its perfect range between early March and late April and that translates into lots of outdoor events (ummm beach party anyone?). Good weather commands even better clothes and I think I have found some interesting pieces that will keep you cool and comfortable and also help you turn heads.

This is a beautiful silk dress by Kimberly Ovitz that has everything done right (it is even paired with McQueen boots in the photo!). The silk will almost be as smooth as all the lines boys will drop on you while you wear this ;) enjoy

R.I.P Alexander

Emma (whom I adore) and I were talking about McQueen shoes last week and then were shocked and saddened when we heard the news. I won't write much about these; you can appreciate the genius by just looking at them.

Python Louboutins!!

Yes, we get it, everyone by now knows who Louboutin is (even my dad!); everyone recognizes the patent red sole and everyone wants a pair. I even have a few friends who think they are losing cache and are becoming too frequently worn. All of that cannot take away from the beauty that is the new python Loubies!
I have actually seen these in person and they put a spell on you. Beautiful texture, master craftsmanship and a color that could really make a statement. Many people would be tempted to pair these with white outfits but DON'T!!!
These would look fantastic paired with blue jeans and/or dresses. You could also go for black and let the evil/good look work for you.

Jimmy Chooooo??? impressed witchu!

OK, if you would like to revisit my thoughts on Choo see the post below. I know I said I wasn't a big fan, blah blah etc, but these heels are art not fashion. Having a pair of these snake skins on your feet would put you in serious contention as my potential bride to be. You will see these ALL summer long and for good reason. They have amazing shape, the colors are very beautiful and they will transform any outfit from mediocre to jawdropping.

Run to a store near you ASAP!

Jimmy Choo, Whats up withchu??

I am not going to lie, I am not the biggest Jimmy Choo fan in the world. Do not ask me to explain myself I just thought the shoes became a bit blase after initially taking off. But I was pleasantly surprised to see these from the last collection.
The top one in particular has been very popular on the red carpet circuit and oooh lalala parties and for good reason. They are HOT!
Let me know what you think of these

Eighty Six Striped Dress

There is a definite trend of striped tops, dresses, scarves and even socks at the moment. The right stripes can be very very chic and flattering.
I found this dress browsing around and I really really like it. It can be a very casual beach outfit with flat or sandals or alternatively it can be amped up by thigh high boots or stilettos for a night out.
The kicker is this dress is only USD 66 (yes sixty six dollars!!). Msg me if you want to know where to get it from :)

Black Halo part II

Methinks I am developing a soft spot for Black Halo dresses. They are really putting a lot of creativity and interesting touches to their dresses that are just enough to give you a personalized look.
This one is all about the detailing on the back. The low rectangular cut, the playful strap across the shoulder and the vavavoom draping effect on the bum bum.
This is one hot LBD.
