Don’t do this!

27 Mar

There are a few ladies who earned a place in this month’s “Please don’t” post.

“A) Gross…and B) Really?”

by Blair Waldorf

The first one is British singer Alexandra Burke:

The next one is Jessica Lowndes. The whole look is superb, it’s just that tiny disturbing detail:

Cat Deeley needs no introduction to my American readers. Usually she’s perfect from head to toe, but what the hell happened here?

I never thought Gisele Bündchen would be featured in this post, but such is life…

The last one for now is Chelsea. I wonder if there was no better way to hide it than this:

Tell me if I’m wrong about these!

Return of the classics

13 May

Life is tough for me these days – for a moment I thought about taking a break from blogging but then I decided not to. It’s the island of peace for me right now.

But that’s enough about that, it’s the shoes that we want to talk about, right? Today, classic pairs are worn frequently again, I’ve made a few collages of them.

Not that long ago, there was talk about Brian Atwood‘s “Loca“; a few weeks ago model and footballer wife Sylvie van der Vaart wore it in black – Ms Diaz had a “prototype”, while Kim and Rachel donned the “Maniac” in different colors.

Also, the signature platform pumps by Casadei appeared again:

(BTW, is Rocsi wearing Charlotte Olympia?)

To get even more retro or timeless (you decide), YSL proves to be still out there:

That’s not all from Yves saint Laurent, and in addition, LC bought their new sandals – I present it among these flawless pairs:

But it won’t be an all-history post, Alexander Wang has his supporters too:

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you like what you see. I’m going to visit your lovely blogs asap!

Best of November 2009 and extras

It’s been such a busy weekend, I had no time to post my usual Sunday post! I’ve managed to do it today though 🙂

Speaking of fantastic photos, today I share another interview with you. Despite missing out on the first round (where I have interviewed Sam from Daily Fashion Boost and Celine from/aka The Shoe Girl) she was still kind enough to send me her answers and pictures.

Who am I talking about, you ask. I said, fantastic photos – does this ring any bells? Okay, it’s Hanh from Life in travel!

D: At what age did you start to show interest for fashion in general? How did it start?

H: I was actually interested in fashion at an early age. When I was about 10 years old I started making clothes by myself just using my imagination. It was not well made but I had fun. Being a girl, I just wanted to look pretty.

D: What do you think about the importance of the shoes in an outfit?

H: The shoes are a very important element for an outfit. Pairs of fabulous shoes make a boring outfit become an exciting, stylish one.

D: What is your opinion of fashion trends? How do you decide, what to follow and what is not worth it?

H: Fashion trends are fun as long as we are not going crazy and taking it too seriously. You have to understand your body and your taste to apply it for yourself. To me, fashion is all about fun.

D: Who is/are your favorite shoe designer(s)?

H: Gosh..I really don’t have one. Whatever they look fabulous I love. Although, I have many Givenchy, Ysl, Giuseppe, etc… shoes in my closet.

D: Show me your favorite shoe of your own wardrobe!

H: For now, I love Proenza boots.

D: Sketch/draw your dream shoe!

H: This is my drawing for my dream shoes for spring/summer 2010.
Sorry for not good at drawing a portion of the shoes, but it’s a idea how the shoes would look like.

Thank you for the interview, I really appreciate it! Thanks for your time!

I wish everyone a pleasant week!

Beauties and beasts

9 Sep

I mean, the shoes, of course 🙂

I’ve selected three CL pairs from a very recent event, and in my opinion, these pairs deserve to be called beauties. See them yourself:

(I’m not sure what happened to this picture, but it is okay in its original size; click to get it.)

I’ve also found three badass shoes (and outfits), and I guess you won’t be surprised if I’d call them beasts:

How crazy are these shoes? Do you like them? Would you wear them?

(Looks like I forgot to mention what Amber Rose is wearing (this isn’t my day, is it?). They are Balenciaga.)
