Christian Louboutin Satin Love





I have finally found my 'sole' mate. This sexy nude Christian Louboutin satin peep toe has a ruched detail which leads into knots that cover the toe (looks like a turban) with a Christian Louboutin signature red sole.

Truly stunning as well as sassy. Pair this shoe with delicate dresses and teeter to shoe heaven.

It costs a whopping £395 (aprox US$600.00), because they are the most beautiful pair of shoes I’ve ever seen. Espensive, but totally worth it.

Get The ‘Hairspray’ Look

Jessica Simpson Launches Swimwear Line



After giving the world crappy music, a crappy reality show and crappy music, Jessica Simpson has finally done something right. This past weekend marked the launch of Jessica Simpson’s new line of sizzling swimsuits at Miami’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Is there anything she hasn’t done yet? And they say she is a ‘blonde’!

Tips ::
Using lace as trimming on luxe fabrics like satin and chiffon gives them that extra enhancement. A winning combination for a dressy affair!

Just because lace has that English Rose appeal doesn't mean that you can't dress it down. Team a lace-trimmed top with a pair of bermudas for casual weekends.

Max your wardrobe mileage with a pretty lace tunic. Wear it with jeans or tailored pants to get a polished look or drape it over a bikini as a swim dress for a little resort flair.

Layer sheer fabrics... Pair a sheer lace tank with a chiffon blouse or shirt. You will look absolutely sizzling. Leave a few buttons undone so that your pretty lace top can be seen.

Louis Vuitton recently launched their latest limited edition line for Spring/Summer. The Dentelle lace collection is an update of the classic LV monogram bags. These limited edition bags are flirty, with pretty lace details. The details give the classic well loved bag a feminine, Victorian charm.

Rock The Hermès Clutch





At the recent Hermès Fall/Winter 2007 fashion show, models were carrying a new breed of clutches. These multi-purpose bags act as a clutch and a hand-warmer during the winter months. They look really ridiculous to me. How much do you think they will be retailed for?

Do you love it or hate it?

Paris in Hawaii



Paris Hilton is back to her jet-setting ways, touching down in Hawaii (in a disguise) after her prison ordeal with no entourage, no bodyguards and no party friends. The hotel heiress then had a little splash at the pool, dined with some friends and went on a retail therapy at Banana Republic (very un-Paris). She looked sophisticated and summer-y in her black get-up. She had on a Da-Nang Shirt Dress in Black ($193.00), a Chanel Classic Quilted Bag ($1580.00) and a black Michael Kors Bradford Point-Toe Pumps ($210.00). She shield her eyes form the summer sun with an oversized sunglasses ($350.00). Do you think Paris’ goody-goody image will change?

Lollilicious!!!



Have yourself a little sugar treat that lights up a wardrobe of dark.



Use colors as accents to dress up basic shades such as black, blue or white. Giving monotones a dose of fire engine red or electric blue gives your clothes that instant shot of energy! Try on a funky watch or a sunshine-y clutch in bubblegum yellow or a hot pink belt. Don't worry about the colors jaring. The whole idea is to go just a little overboard.

Eva The Diva



‘America's Next Top Model’ Cycle 3 winner, Eva Marcille (she officially dropped Pigford), looked absolutely fabulous at this year's BET Awards. Her Laundry by Design Blanket Stripe Wrap Dress looked very flattering to her figure and was perfect with her skin tone. As we can’t see her shoes, I have chosen Jimmy Choo’s Mardi Metallic Sandals which will look dazzling with the multi-colored dress. She completed her look with a silver clutch and a few Lucite bangles. I have always felt that she was the best ANTM winner. With her sense of style, Eva has definitely achieved her top model status.
