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.

4) Every woman’s favourite- a good pair of jeans- spruce up your outfit with thigh high boots

If you have not noticed sneakers are currently the way forward for a lot of celebrities that are doing the natural casual relaxed look at the moment so we had to post on the Giuseppe Zanotti italian shoe genius and the creator of these dazzling sneakers retailing at $600 a pair

The silver metallic reptile skinned shoe is not only eye catching but a true modern day “I here to kick butt”  shoe. With bright neon green accents and hints these shoes are sure not to be missed by anyone.

The zip is a major focal point in these shoes as when unzipped it releases even more of the accented colour.

The shoe is also available in the a black and silver version which has been popular with singer Cassie.

On my daily prowl of the shoes online I happened to stop by one of my favourite shoe designers Mr Atwood. I witnessed the latest in his new stunning collection of shoes- and I simply had to inform the world of them! This isn’t the first post and devotion to the Atwood and is not to be the last- but they are simply too good to miss! I think his shoes are ooze femininity and appeal to the masses.

In the collection there are some marvellous shoes but these are the top three of the beauties I loved and paid close attention to today.

3)Aliyza Open Toe Pump Red:

 

These red Dorothy “There’s no place like home” fusion mix with a little tribal African inspired flavour really captures the eye and the heart! With the Aliyza open toe pump. I simply Loved the colourful and vibrant feel that the shoe exudes and how great would these look with a simple summer dress!Simply Divine Darling! Retailing at $1,185.00 A certain investment into the shoe collection.

2)Neela in Black/Cappuccino Nude.

These Jack sparrow pirate jacket inspired shoes are also on the must have shoes list this month. Loving the sling back and peep toe ideal for the approaching summer days and the late warm summer nights- be it a friends BBQ or outdoor party these shoes really are statement pieces for an outfit. Turning something plain into that extra edge. RRP $915.00

1)Glamazon T Strap in Pomice

Oh yes- GLAMAZON indeed it is!- No doubt wearing these Will make you feel untouchable, on top of the world and very very sexy. Ankle cuffs are very cute, I like to call jewellery for the ankle and with a short flowing dress or even a pair of skinny jeans it just WORKS. The Beige colour means it can be worn with practically anything and the peep toe makes it perfect for the summer months. The Glamazon is my favourite of the three because of the power these shoes have- amazing that an item could have power but these certainly give the impression of presence and glory. Who run the world? women in great shoes!! $1,350

Rihanna is out in my town today -That being Central London promoting her latest venture into acting for her film Battleship which is due to hit cinemas sometime in May 2012. With it comes an entire new selection of fabulous fashion. The princess was spotted at a local area of 5 star hotel The Mandarin Oriental Hotel with her ultra slimmed physic that she has been working on for the release of the film.

She wore Alexander Wang pre fall 2012 dress which was a lovely shade of Green, deep and luxurious colour which we don’t often get to see, so a great choice really!

She has been a blond for a while now, and I have voiced the dislike of this colour but shes gone ultra blond today which (sort of) complimented the green of the dress!

Surprisingly enough it was very sunny in the capital (Yes it can be sunny in London) so Rihanna choose a pair of $220 sunglasses by Karen Walker “Number One” sunglasses from the summer 2012 collection. Karen is known for her unique styles and this one is no different- I am particularly loving the side arrows on the arms of the glasses!

The halter dress was a nice choice for a particularly warm day in the capitol- the satin material is perfect for her new svelte figure. Compared to the model I think the dress really comes alive on Rihanna. What do you think?

Of course she added some simple black Christian louboutin “Pigalle” pumps which gave the dress a rather sophisticated feel.

Just the day before Rihanna was spotted taking the tube through Waterloo station to catch up with Drake as he performed at the 02 in Greenwich. We love the fact she likes to be a bit controversial and I guess “normal” taking the tube with her friends- yes it caused a lot of commotion but she did it like a trooper! why not!

Beyonce has officially come out of hiding and is now been spotted walking the baby and what we have noticed is that her fashion has transformed to be more a relaxed and rather cool yummy mummy than her traditional sexy look she usually always goes for- which is great, she is embracing this time being a new mum and is doing well staying away from the 10 inch heels her feet are accustomed/subjected to.

Last week the Queen Bee was spotted out with the latest Carter in a rather urban looking outfit choosing sneakers and black woolly hat, sunglasses and a large overcoat very discrete whilst every inch of Baby Blue was covered in her baby wrap.

We have had a lot of request about her mega cool high top trainers / sneakers and we have managed to match them up with the shoes that a lot of celebrities have been wearing including Beyonce herself.

Beyonce’s $640/ £440 black suede sneakers by Isabel Marant have sold out since she has been snapped out in New York over the past few days. However similar colours of the shoe can be purchased from Mytheresa Barneys or Polyvore. Most shops have sold out but similar Isabel Marant sneakers are available..

 


beyonce's black sneekersThe singer has been spotted in the love on top music video wearing the shoes whilst she was in the early stages of her pregnancy – she teamed the sneakers with her now signature leotard and a gold sailor hat which worked well for the video keeping focus on the dance moves and not an over complex outfit and as usual her song was a hit.

 

beyonce's trainers in love on top videoOther celebrities that have given the casual look a try seem to be on the increase, could it be that flat shoes are becoming the new heel? Other than the recent videos Beyonce would never be caught dead in flat shoes so maybe they are the new heel.. (nah, I don’t think so either) but those that have tried it include the classically beautiful Anne Hathaway:

Alicia Keys is one to be very close with urban fashion so we would expect her in something such as these- here she sat with her Husband and son at a basketball game in a pair of the sneakers.

alicia keys isabel marant sneakersMiranda Kerr and son also had a pair of the trainers in red..

The great thing about the sneakers is that they come in a plethora of colours so you can pick one that suits you the most, black is most practical but if your like me and love a bit of colour go wild!

So after bumping into the Brian Atwood website I saw the fabulous shoes created by the Atwood team so becoming inspired this post will be showcasinga top 5 countdown from the latest collection.

Brian is a favourite for several celebrities from Eva Longoria and Megan Fox and you can see why- the shoes are hot!

5. So we have the Ammy– beautiful elegant piece- a work of art really! loving the simple black curl trim and gold stiletto heel and a peep toe which is great for showcasing the latest nail varnish! Perfect for spring summer and autumn and heck they look that good why not wear it in the winter!

4. Claudia Bis : This Golden gorgeous pump is number four on our list- every woman needs a pair of golden shoes be like Dorothy and sparkle in these pumps- these are even great for the office for the day when you want to stand out, why not just combine these with a black skirt suit fitted jacket and some gold shoes -Stand out statement shoes called Claudia Bis

claudia brian atwood3. MANIAC- is the name of these and thats exactly what they portray but in the sense of the cute high fashion maniac!

Clearly for the inner Barbie that all of us lovely ladies have inside (some deeper than others ) but again these could be a really pop out piece that can be added to a black pant suit or a colourful dress but for real impact these patent Manic’s look great with something subtle- may as well let the couture do the talking whilst your doing the walking!

brian atwood maniac pink shoes2. ALESHA another pink choice- I do love the bright coloured shoes these ones are a bit subtle compared to the maniac’s. I am really loving the platform on these shoes paired with the chunky heels- these would be great for a night out added stability in the heel makes these FAB-U-LOUS!

1.Abba

The lovely ABBA’s are my first choice we love it here- peep toe, stiletto heel sling back and a superb large platform heel.

These black pumps are so versatile can be worn with anything- elegant.

The cream outline adds a lovely trim.

Vanessa Hudgens has been spotted looking rather happy in recent months as a lot of things seem to be going well for her, which is nice to hear. She seems to have lost the weight from her film role “Gimme Shelter” whereby she played a pregnant teenager and she back in shape looking rather lovely with her current boyfriend Austin Butler, she has been snapped a plethora of times whilst out and about with the guy looking rather cosy, but today she decided to hit the spa and have a little pick-me-up as she left the salon looking refreshed and on point.

In particular today she chose to wear a very striking pair of boots By Miista and they are on sale at the moment for £96.00 from free people.com.

A very good price point considering!

The shoe is a two toned laced platform with three buckles made from leather and a hidden zipper closing on the inside for a snug and comfortable fit.

She paired her shoes with some distressed jeans and a chic shabby jumper.

Her glasses are also rather glam by Marc Jacobs and frame her face and brown hair well.

They are the Black Havana Framed aviator and can be purchased direct from Marc

I think she looks great in this outfit- relaxed and cool! well done Vanessa 🙂

Today’s spotlight shoe is the weird and wonderful boots made by D&G- these ones are truly heart stopping and incredibly dramatic and will also keep your legs and feet warm over Christmas..horrah! Never can you find shoes with so many pluses!

 

The Leather and rubber sole is great for comfort and the furry loose string body of the shoe makes it incredibly unique and something similar and more wearable than the shoes worn by Nicki Minaj on the set of her video with Willow Smith.

These beige shoes are a great altenative option for those not as daring but still experiemental.

They have a heel height of 13.00 and can be purchased from the D&G site for £1,145.00 WooHoo

On the other side of this year Prada came out with their 2011 collection and with it came their version of the Brothel Creepers-

These rather interesting and eye catching shoes are the perfect mix between a trainer- (which is great as it incorporates a casual wear), an espadrille (so boasts comfort and great on the feet) and a platform so adds the element of high fashion.

Finalised with the Prada stamp these are on today’s Shoe Addiction list.

The unique lace up shoes come in a variety of colours with the signature rope tied platform stiletto with the current rrp at £510.00. They can be purchased online and in store.

Its a great retake on the classic men’s courtroom shoe that they have modified with a cool new twist which is androgynous and sexy for women as well.

The shoe has been an amazing seller with the help of Rihanna, the singer put these babies back on the map- and these prada lace ups are a cool alternative for both men and women.

So last night was the announcement of the 2012 Grammy awards in sunny Los Angeles and all the biggest music artists were out in full glory to present the nominations for the show that will be in February. One of the hottest artists Nicki Minaj came to the stage in a bright blue strapless dress which fitted her curvy body like a glove and as usual she had her bright but complimenting pink curly statemented hair.

Nicki Minaj was joined on stage by fellow pink lover Katy Perry in a very glamourous pink dress that also matched her pink tint hair.

Her gown by D&G had a soft lace overlay, strapless and figure huggingly tight.

Both looked fabulous side by side and complimented each others look really well- it was as if they had conversed before hand about their choice of outfits.

One of my favourite things on Nicki are her shoes!- oh yes- WE ARE back to shoes.

Her Versace triple stacked platform shoes are a real show stopper, its not the first time we have seen Barbie in the shoes- she favours them quite a lot but on this particular night she chose a blue and white pair which go perfectly with her dress.

I have to say Nicki is known for going very loud and wild with her choice of outfits but this particular ensemble- despite the pink hair, is very well put together- there is nothing you can really knock, the dress, a lovely shade of bright blue, killer heels and awesome hair she worked it well today.

nicki minaj versace shoes

The dress has panels to the front and side- it works in a very similar way to the dress Kate Winslet in Stella Mccartney wore on two occasions, giving the subtle illusion of a slimmer waist, thighs and hips, Nicky due to her curves did not need the addition of a colour contrast otherwise it would be TOO CURVY! So it worked perfectly well for her. The rapper should also be happy as she was nominated for awards at the Grammys as well… watch this space in February to see if she wins!

Good job…
