Seriously Wicked Wedges

August 9, 2012
wicked-wedges-zanotti

I’d be lying (and you know I would) if I said I wasn’t completely, insanely, truly, madly, deeply in love with shoes! The higher the heel… bring it! Now as much as I love sexy heels, I’m equally obsessed with wedges, possibly more obsessed with wedges. Wow wedges that is…

Here are three Seriously Wicked Wedges I’d love to have in my closet right now…

The Simple Classic 

Trust Steve Madden to bring out a quality, stylish and makes-my-legs-look-miles-longer pair of wedges that are in our financial grasp! I actually saw these babies, called Pammy at Edgars (on sale noggal), but they were out of the black in my size and only had them in pink. Maybe, maybe, maybe I’ll go back for them…

The Dream Machine

I could soooo picture myself eating nothing but beans on toast to save up for a pair of these. Oh bugger saving up, I’d totally max out my credit card without second guessing – if I could find this pair of Giuseppe Zanotti wedges, that is. Who knows, maybe while I’m in Europe my prayers will be answered and I’ll find a pair? Also that my credit card will be kind enough to let me splurge on them. Dear bank manager, I hope you are reading this… I NEED these!

All I can say is thank goodness I don’t have kids! Could you imagine? The poor buggers would starve, but alas, mama bear would have a fabulous pair of shoes. Thanks Style Pantry for making me aware of these gorgeous shoes! Now I simply must have a pair!   

The Crazy Kid


Everybody is entitled to at least one pair of seriously crazy, OTT shoes! My pic would be these gorg, GAGA-approved Jeffrey Campbell Night Walk wedges. Aren’t they but, too awesome? After seeing these babies on the beautiful Zorannah’s Blog, I was hooked! Our local blogger, SA Fashion Girl also posted pic of her black suede JC’s on Instagram and I was like “Gaga”!

These babies are available and in loads of different colours from SoleStruck.

What pair of wedges gets your heart racing?

Marching On

August 8, 2012
military-1

Military is predicted to be one of the hottest trends for fall so it’s a good time to be thinking of how you can “armify” your wardrobe. And lucky for us girls there are a bunch of ways to wear modern military, here’s some inspiration.

Military dress available from Mango.com

The key piece for this trend is a military jacket. For a modern take, look for a military coat that has oversized epaulets, and big buttons. A military dress (above), seen on the runways of Moshino and Victoria Beckham, is also a great alternative. Colour wise think khaki and shades of grey, and try incorporate detailing like leather paneling or stud like buttons.

Love this military coat, available from Zara.com

I’ve taken this trend down the path of a large lapelled, slate grey parka (and I can say that since I’ve literally just ordered mine from ASOS!). Parkas were featured strongly at both Burberry and Elizabeth and James, and not only is it a great in-between jacket but you can switch it up pretty easily. An oversized parka in camo with lots of zips and bulgy pockets says sporty and slouchy, but a more fitted, dark khaki parka with a belt nipped in at the waist can be dressy.

Louboutin to Launch a Make-Up Line

August 7, 2012

How happy are we?! Christian Louboutin wanted to make our soles red and now he wants to make our lips red too.

If your budget does not allow you to own a pair of Christian Louboutin’s trademark red-bottomed heels, you can still get your hands on Louboutin’s make-up line which will be out sometime next year.

The luxury cosmetic line will be available at much more affordable prices than the hefty price tag attached to a pair of those gorgeous shoes, which deserve to live in a well-lit cabinet, on display for all the world to appreciate their beauty…but I digress.

There’s a whole lot of shoe love going on with this pair!

This beauty line is in the works and although details are hard to come by at this stage, we are very excited! Louboutin promises that the line will “mirror the quality of the shoes, of the bags, of all the DNA of the brand.”

Okay, now we are even more excited! I’m sure of one thing; I expect that we’ll see a lot of his signature red popping up all over the show, along with jewels, some spikes (perhaps?) and all-round fabulosity.

Watch this space for details!

Would you try Louboutin’s make-up line?
