So its finally here… winter..blah! I m not a winter wonderland girl, I am more of a super summer chic..happy go lucky.. less (clothing) is more! and winter doesn’t really allow you to adopt that motto unless you live in LA.

London is more of a layers thick coat, balaclava and multi layering of gloves! so with that said this post brings us nicely onto the mother of the moment Kim Kardashian with her latest accessory (The baby) and her knee height brown boots.

kim kardashian brown bootsThe new mum was spotted loading baby Nori into the car in these sexy over the knee farmer style boots which we actually really loved..

On closer inspection we found these to be a Phillip Lim brown £875.00 leather back strap boot.

She choose to comfortably wear the boots with jeans but knee highs work especially well with leggings.. I would say stay away from mini skirts as you’ll probably look a bit like you have been taken from the Pretty woman set! That’s not a good look during the day! or outside ANYTIME. (KK

PHILLIP LIM BOOTS KIM KARDASHIANOur search in to the perfect brown boot continues and we stumble on a British classic..Burberry

Its great when you get to see celebrities just walking about minding their own business and running errands like the rest of us. Today we are positing a few of the celebs that were doing just that in New York City.

The big apple is a great place to catch random actors and A list celebrities.. you never really know who is behind the next pair of large sunglasses..

Today we have..:

 

Sarah Jessica Parker

The sex and the city star is always about NYC looking rather casual in jeans and boots.. She popped into Duane Reade for some much needed essentials.

Our British beauty Lily Cole was seen leaving the Bowery Hotel at the Upper East Side looking fresh faced without make up in a large oversized cardigan.

lily cole large cardiagan new yorkMedia favourite Lindsey Lohan arrived back to NYC and here she is spotted at the airport, she has recently been doing the talk show rounds in LA whilst she goes through more courtroom action than ever before.

lindsay lohan jeans hood and glassesNot so newly-wed Jessica Biel also takes the the streets with her sunglasses and jacket and casually walks down the road looking ‘normal’ Funnily enough when I saw this photograph I thought it was Eva Longoria… anyone else agree?

jessica bielCasual Fridays are clearly popular New York!

The last spotting we decided to tell you about is Olivia Palermo, in a lovely coral peach coat perfect for spring as the weather starts t turn and blue skies are above.

Olivia+Palermo+seen+walking+dog+BrooklynRipped jeans and a dog in tow its the perfect accessory.. Cute!

I love the glasses.. as summer slowly comes round here in London I’m looking for my next pair of glasses and these look awesome.

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.

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

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.

So Justin Bieber has been in the news a lot this past week, what with his birthday that ended horribly with it closing due to underage guests, his tour visiting London arriving 2 hours late for his angry screaming fans and random freak outs at the paparazzi. So the teenager has to be in the top clothing and accessories whilst out and about.

Happy New Year all you wonderful Sharp N Chic readers, we are back this year and with vengeance, reading the emails we have been getting asking for more stories and celeb fashion we can’t refuse. So January its here and so are we! so lets get started!!

 

Winter Boots

So its currently about 12 degrees in London which is not too bad, you can leave the house and be ok with a light jacket if it stays like this for the remainder of winter we will be happy however if the weather is to take a turn for the worst like most years when Feb comes round then we have the shoes for you to get through the cold snow weather.

These boots are about keeping warm, staying safe and looking cute!

Lets go..

The Coach Frye harness boot.

winter boots by coach fur

The coach boot is exceptional luxury but with the fur trim it will be sure to leave your toes warm and comfy in the coldest parts of the world, as well as a low heel and rugged sole the boot will protect you from slipping on ice when walking from the car to the shops!

coach fur coyote boots

The limited edition boot captures the iconic Frye Harness boot with warmth and home comfort of soft coyote furr and pure leather on the boot.

We like these boots as we do like a bit of fur especially when it gets really cold out, it always looks really cute and snow bunny-esk! an

Plus the ruggedness of the boot keeps it contemporary and hard! Whenever I wear my boots I always feel slightly untouchable as I walk the streets of London, a certain confidence and air just overwhelms me as I stomp around so you have got to love a rugged boot!

The boot can be purchased from the store Coach for £1,300 / $1,800 

 

Tivoli by Sorel

geek chic warm boot

A bit of Geek Chic with these babies!

Boots at the calf are cool for running errands so are great if your out and about, these in particular are fab as they have a fleece fur inside so your feet will feel as though they are surrounded by sheep on any cold snowy day. Further more if the heavens do decide to open the rain will not leave your feet wet either! Warm feet warm heart! and in these Tivoli’s by Sorel your feet will certainly remain warm dry and in fashion!

cool winter boots sorel tivoli

They are lightweight and sleek with 100g of insulation protecting you from the cold weather they can be purchased directly from the site found here  at £155.00 the boots provide a great mix of fashion, coolness, warmth and a very healthy price!

Ugg Australia

sand ugg boot

Everyones favourite boot straight from down under had to be on the list and if I am honest, Ugg boots tend not to really do it for me, perhaps due to the large number of fakes out there but they tend to seem very warn in and abused on most people! However in looking into the brand a bit further it gave me the possibility of learning about these new design Ugg boots with the three buttons which does switch it up a bit and highlight that it is in fact different from the thousands of Uggs walking down the road.

Ugg boots, or at least the traditional Ugg boots are not so great for the wet weather but likt the tivoli they are made with a warm fleece which protects the feet from the cold elements its a boot that is for comfort, not hiking a mountain or battling the spring showers.

ugg boot fur

These boots can also achieve multiple looks by folding down to reveal the elegant fur trim or having high up to keep the calves warm!

2 for 1 isn’t bad when it comes to boots!

At £220.00 it isn’t the most expensive boot for your buck

 

Bottega Veneta Boxcalf boot

high shine boot bottega

High shine society in these calf height boots!

These would have to be our most formal boots we have on the showcase, these can easily be worn into the office on those really cold days, smart and chic always works well and even better when it protects you from the elements!

Bottega Veneta shine calf box boots

The boot made from calf leather can be found here for £740.00

Mulberry Iphone Leather Cover Chocolate

mullberry iphone case

The beautiful Mulberry Iphone case made from a stunning leather as well as stitch detailing and a brushed leather interior. The case fits all iphones from the first to the 4s. The Iphone simply sits inside the case so not perfect if you drop the phone whilst using but its a lush option for men that choose to have the phone inside a pocket. The Iphone case is finished with a Mulberry tree detail which I’m sure will match the lovely bag. The case comes with Luxury mulberry box.

4. ALEXANDER MCQUEEN Skull iPhone 4 case.

This £150.00 iphone case speaks loudly about fashion and personality, it does come in a variety of colours if the orange is too bright but this was our favourite. Eye catching and bold. Why not!

alexander mcqueen iphone case

This fits the iphone 4 and 4s and works by slipping the phone inside the case, again not great for mistakes if you drop the phone during use but works during any other time. The skull clasp is made from Swarovski crystal and the leather case wipe clean for spills and dirt.

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.

 

Stéphane Rolland Couture 2012 white float dress

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?

Its been a while since we last wrote about Queen B, but tonight we had to come out with something after seeing her on the BET awards in a beautiful stunning bright yellow high leg split gown which she wore to receive her award for best female R&B artist.

She sat next to her husband Jay Z whom sat next to Kanye West and co during the ceremony.

She did look ravishing supposedly shedding 60 lbs of baby weight after giving birth to baby Blu.

The dress was a satin blend so no doubt any lumps and bumps would have shown and the Queen had no ounce of chub to show!

She’s done well to retract back the so-called weight!

The dress by Stéphane Rolland Couture,  showcased her slim figure and really stood out from the crowd.

She looks lovely seems like she is currently on top of her world..
