The Must Have Item

March 1, 2012 § 17 Comments

For as long as I remember there only ever been 2 lengths of skirts in my wardrobe – either maxi or mini (to tell you the truth the majority are mini and I am sure I am not the only one). Calf length aka midi skirt would only be associated with black and white photos my grandmother used to show me of her youth. But now it is time to forget that association and welcome the new fashion piece into our lives (and wardrobes) – Chiffon Pleated Midi Skirt.

Slight fascination with this particular item started on a few catwalks for autumn winter 2011 season, but by spring summer 2012 pleated midi has repositioned itself from charity shops to everyone’s fashion wish list and it seems it is here to stay! The item is so versatile, as you can see from the catwalk looks above, it is likely to become a wardrobe staple: you can wear it on leisurely walk, to a work meeting, during cocktail hour and pretty much everywhere else by teaming it with different tops and accessories. And did I mention it looks as good with flats as with heels?

My favourite way to wear one this season is to pick one-colour version in either bright or pastel shade, team it up with oversized T-shirt and add randomly put together long chain necklaces. And if you are not afraid to experiment team up socks with wedges à la Mulberry campaign and you are ready to rock it!

The best thing – there is such a wide range to choose from whether you are looking for designer item or cheaper way to adopt this trend. My favourites are those by Jil Sander which come in so many colours you would not want to look anywhere else. Bellow are my designer and budget picks for joining on the hot trend of Spring Summer 12!

Jimmy Choo Kerfield Shoe Boots

August 6, 2011 § Leave a comment

Meet Kerfield Shoe Boot. My favourite piece of the Autumn/Winter 11 Jimmy Choo collection.

Generally, I am obsessed with Jimmy Choo. After all the different shoes I wore over the years that made me feel like I would rather walk bare foot across hot coal just after a few hours, Jimmy Choo is a find. I am sure it all depends on foot shape and some would find Christian Louboutin shoes comfortable (even though he himself does not believe his shoes are made for comfort). Nevertheless I have been converted – all my shoe investments for the last year have been into Jimmy Choo’s. For me its not just buying a beautifully crafted piece of shoe art, it is buying something I could wear and not want to take off!

This new shoe boot has so much to offer – platform, killer heal, a choice of blue or black colour.. I would not think twice about buying this shoe but a £650 price tag means for now, the only place those shoes can take in my life is on my wish list.

Where Am I?
