Luxe For Less: Zara Leopard Booties


I had wanted leopard print shoes for a while but there weren't any which were within my tiny student budget so I... gave up... 

AND THEN... THESE HAPPENED!

BFF Material








Lindsay & Lulu By Dannijo

A new take and more robust version of the original friendship bracelet.

Prices ranging from $80 - $105, quite an awesome birthday present?
I think we have some inspiration for a DIY project...

Bag Crush: Proenza Schouler PS1




Mary-Kate and Ashley are among the numerous fans of this simple and understated messenger. I have seen this bag all over the fashion-blogo-sphere but I hadn't had the opportunity to see it up close and personal because it was unavailable in UK until quite recently. The initial attraction to the PS1 was the layering of the flaps, a very simple yet effective design which makes this bag stand out without being pretentious which tends to be the case. In my opinion, people who carry bags with the label plastered all over the bag don't really appreciate their bag and the designers, they carry it as a sign of status which I feel exploits a brand and cheapens it. This bag is a prime example of great design which exudes style of the highest form balanced by the uber-cool understated luxury it is. 

This bag will stand the test of time just like the Chanel 2.55 which will always remain on my "Favourites" List.

Giovanna Battaglia amFAR Gala


Vintage archives at its best. This dress was first seen on the cover of Vogue in 1992, it rocked the world then, and its rocking the world now. This all black ensemble is utterly understated and is oozing with glamour and elegance. Who ever frowned upon flashing flesh has obviously never seen this.
