Over The Knee Boots

Todays post is on the new trend we have notice around whilst shopping on the streets of London.

With the cold weather it makes perfect sense as to why Boots are a favourite by Londoners, New Yorkers and any other could climate city members at the moment.

Here are some inspirational ways to showcase your knee high boots.

1) Gorgeous knee highs with  a dress works superbly well, Combo with tights a large bag and an easy breezy dress.

2) Thigh high boots alongside a soft pastal skirt – an awesome mix.

The hard part about the knee high boots is that it can be rather ‘Pretty Woman’

So keeping the colours fresh, high neck jumper is perfect.

3) All black everything! Tights, jackets, and a skater skirt.

Toned down with the black tights, less skin immediately makes this Pretty woman.

I knew it was time. I knew Spring was imminent and this nasty cold depressing season we call winter is almost on its way out. ‘Bye Felicia’ I hear you say! With that and the blue skies up ahead I thought to myself it is now time to start searching for summer wear.

This thought also came into my mind as a few friends have booked a trip to Dubai in a few weeks so summer outfits is almost certainly important.

With that said, with also  watching a few episodes of reality show it dawned on me that I need a cover up for the beach! but a cute one! One that shows skin but also hides skin (after all its a traditional country)

No more sarongs..

The scarf is for sale at £315.00 whilst the coat can be purchased from £300 – £550.00 like the Wiltshire heritage.

Michael kors bag designs

Have you noticed, over the past year Michael Kors bags seem to be everywhere, everyone and and thier mother has a MK bag and the trend seems to be getting more immense. (My mother bought her bag last month!)

Early on in the year, before I noticed the popularity of the MK, I stepped into my local Covent Garden Michael Kors shop in London and instantly fell in love with the beige bag:

This one to be exact:

Michael kors bag beigeIt was tidy- ready for business and play!

I loved it and instantly purchased..

Then over the next months I noticed everyone had the same bag- I can’t say that I was pleased- but its a cute bag so I guess its expected.

 

So this post is a top five list of my favourite MK bags!

Enjoy

 

5.

Jet Set Travel Saffiano Leather Medium Tote

We think this is a traditional, no nonsense sensible yet sexy bag perfect for meetings, work, after work drinks and the usual city office busy life.

Perfect for the modern business woman.

This is a luxury bag- one of the more expensive bags by the MK. Crocodile makes the price point of this around the $7000 mark. It is a great bag for those that want that exclusive look- and one that not everyone will have!

Hamilton Large Saffiano Leather Tote

The Tote is a classic bag for the feminine arm and works well with any outfit- Large enough for the files and folders. Traditional Statement piece in a bold solid cadbury purple colour.

Sutton Medium Logo Satchel Bag

Sutton Medium Logo Satchel Bag

The Satchel bag is a classic for many of the other brands so MK of course had to come out with something similar and this print is a favourite. Medium sized perfect for everyday use.

 

1.The Tan Selma

selma mk bag

Of course my bag had to be number one! the shape- size- colour everything about the bag is simply worth it.

If your thinking about buying your lady a bag- then the Michael Korrs is a good choice- the price point isn’t ridiculous and you can have a little bit of luxury.

Having just looked through the 2014 collection by Zuhire Murad, I would say I am a devout fan.

The dresses ooze glamourous high fashion and drama- the type of dress that will make everyone stop and stare- not for the faint hearted or the shy these gowns are the top of our list for the fall couture 2014.zuhair murad 2014 collection blue dress zuhair-murad034

Plunging necklines, nipped waists, sharp shoulders and silutte enhancing structures show which show just the right amount of skin to be uber sexy yet still sophisticated.

zuhair murad 2014 collection green dress zuhair murad 2014 collection green dress zuhair murad 2014 collection green dress

Floor length and shorter styles graced the catwalk with bright colours such as teal, royal blue and burgundy red a colour for every skin tone and personality.

Inspiration behind this line was geometric patterns and metallic sequins.

With such dramatic and wow-ing gowns accessories such as necklaces and earrings were at a minimum which is perfect-put the budget to the dress! So all that you need is a small clutch and a cinched belt

Makeup was also kept to the classic smokey eye, swept back hair and nutrual tones once again to keep focus on the beauty of the gown.

Sultry.

I personally love jackets, I love how they can instantly make you look smart when paired with a tidy skirt or suite trousers and make you smart casual when matched with jeans. If cut the right way the jacket can really be a statement piece and we have done a few searches to come up with a few of our favourite on sale at the moment.

Belstaff Jacket

A brand that is a new one brought to our attention due to their luxury linens and shapes in jackets and coats.

green belstaff jacket

Very military inspired the double breasted button and contemporary leather trimmings make the jacket striking whilst the moss green colour can be combined with a multitude of other colours.green belstaff jacket

Timeless and can be worn throughout the approaching spring, summer and autumn weathers- perfect for the approaching months.

Retailing at £699.00

Joseph 

This powerful jacket really creates a showpiece item for any plain pair of jeans- again very military styled – enter a room in this and you will dazzle and shine! The jacket is available from the Joseph site for £695.00.

Holland Cooper

Tweed is sexy and its timeless- this is a strong jacket very British made with tweed- modernised with its shape and style, the autumn winter 2013 jacket can be combined with skinny jeans and knee high boots- london glam.

holland cooper jacket

Certainly pulling from equestrian fashion Holland Cooper is renowned and this lovely jacket is no exception. The coat is retailing at £699.00

Belmain Pink Jacket

We chose this solely for the colour, its not often you get to see a pink jacket thats actually..cool!

belmain pink jacket

This Belmain luxury cotton silk blend with the ultra structured silhouette and ice cream hue and sexy curve enhancing layers can be a fab choice for fashion lovers. Retailing at £1,500 match with a plain pair of jeans and heels.

Donna Karen

Donna Karen asymmetric black jacket is our favourite due to its shape and diamond embellishment  last year we wrote about the popularity of drop hem dresses and this coat matches that theory. This is certainly a dressed up jacket compared to the rest and the collection we chose. The drop hem also means it slims your waist and reduces your hips.

What more do we want?!

Wow- I was blown away by Beyoncé’s dress that I had to do a top three from the latest collection by Stephane Rolland. His epic designs feature amazing shapes are really dramatic eye-catching gowns which I have fallen in LOVE with.

So without much pomp and pageantry the top three gowns from the latest collection are as followed.

3.

Stephane designs are really renown for their huge majestic presence and I believe my choice for number three really showcases those exact words:

The drop hem high leg oozes amazing drama and appeal taken in at the waist to provide amazing curves and the wide shoulders create a further illusion simply perfectly designed- LOVE IT!

Wearing white always tends to look dramatic and slightly attention seeking behaviour so combining with with a very dramatic dress will result in even more OTT…

Being over the top is great…sometimes at least and in this gown that’s all you can look! The dress is soft and elegant, very Grecian and matched with the same round gold belt as above.

Well, unfortunately to be predictable I had to pick the 110lb dress as number one simply due to its size!

It’s huge its dramatic and its BRIGHT RED.

I believe black, white and red are the staples for any type of dramatic down and Stephane captured all three right here!

Its simply stunning..

What do you think?

The billboard awards took place this weekend which saw a flurry of stars on the red carpet in their best finery- some of course looked nicer than others but today I wanted to make note of the singer actress and once upon a time childhood sweetheart Miley Cyrus.

Recently she has been all over town and newspapers/blogs showing off her new slim figure which she claims is down to a gluten allergy, we blogged on this a few weeks back also as it is quite a substantial bit of weight she has lost. To be fair to her it does look good.

So she was on the red carpet with… not much actually!

miley cyrus white jacket red carpet

A simple white Jean Paul Gaultier jacket and the usual red pumps, some simple Jacquie Aiche jewels aligned her neck and fingers and thus the look was complete!

I quite like the chic look of the ice white jacket- if you are wanting to power dress, no doubt this would be a great option with a pair of matching trousers! BUT not so much on its own.. especially not to the office! However Miley has chosen to wear it as a dress anyway.

 

I have to mention the nose ring- REALLY not a big fan- with the trout pout and big hair it just does not look nice- looks rather trashy!

The jacket is nice though as are the shoes- if she wants to come across as a new woman – and mature why didn’t she choose to wear this as a suite combo instead of going against the grain once again?!

We found this smart jacket by paul smith which looked rather dashing for £700.00

Solange Knowles seems to be everywhere at the moment, her modelling career is taking off, her fashion has had a complete 180 and it seems as though people are finally paying attention to the other Knowles sister. She was at yet another press event this week in a very bright and vibrant outfit from the Ferragamo Spring 2012.

purple jacket solange knowles

Salvatore Ferragamo had held an event to celebrate the reopening of the flagship store on Fifth Avenue New York city yesterday evening and Solange paid homage to the designer turning up in his fresh 2012 collection which is full of very bright colours and colour blocking.

With summer around the corner- colour is very important and with any of these pieces a incredibly vibrant ensemble can be formed.

Including that worn by Solange : She arrived in a very shocking cadbury purple over sized suit jacket alongside bright shiny red slim fitting cropped trousers, which worked to highlight the Blejan bi-colour sandals also by Ferragamo. The socialite wore a Ferragamo Spring 2012 look with a Maki Oh blouse.

To be honest, I am not keen on this look- the trousers the colours the over sized jacket, it just makes me think 🙁

But Solange seems happy as she posed with models throughout the night.

The collection is a fun and colour shocking mix of loveliness : here are some of my favorites!
