Tokidoki for London Sole

London Sole has partnered up with Tokidoki on a line of ballerina flats, in which they are creating new looks and styles for the everyday flats that would be amazing to just have for “the fun night out”. Here is a couple of the new designs in which they are a few of my favorite, which I plan to include in my collection with in the next year!

Man-Up Monday: Facial Hair 2014

 

What are we discussing today? The years have shown us an accessory that’s a must for 2014. Hipsters to gamers, and gamers to business men: Facial hair can serve as a huge role for a fashion-forward man. Sideburns, stubble, handlebar mustaches, and thick beards: Not only are these handsome guys great to look at, they have their own unique sense of style! These are our honored, rugged faced guests on this Man-Up Monday kind of day… Take a look at the selfies:

 

We call this one… “Stubble and a Daydream!”

 

Only a man with a mustache and suspenders can smile this much!

 

Bingo night has never seen such beard!

 

Weather report? Blue skies with a slight chance of stubbled jaw!

Origami Fall 2014!

Designers have turned into the ancient art of origami to animate Fall 2014 footwear shapes; where the designers carefully and strategically placed creases and lots of luxe-sculptural details to the elegance of the shoe.

Top three shoes are my favorite, they show elegance and a feminine touch, either to be dressed up or down.

Man-Up Monday: White Bucks

White with a tan sole and heel!

 

Hello, Man-Up Monday readers! We’re here to tell you about an essential piece for your wardrobe, this summer. Is it a white tee-shirt? No. How about a white blazer? Nope! So yes, both of those are an obvious, “Duh’s!” However, you’re forgetting something… White Bucks! These clean and crisp, laced shoes can be dressed up or dressed down. Either way, it’s pretty hard not to want to look your best when placing your feet in these “bad boys.” According to Esquire magazine, formal and semi-formal events are the way to go. Do you want to here a little secret? Pair them with salmon colored pants, a light blue top, white blazer, and a subtle necklace or bow tie. Where might you be going? Shopping, the movies, church, etc… The world is your oyster. Take a look at the subtle differences that are made within each brands shoe!

White with subtle grey zigzags, brown weft, and a rust colored sole!

Ssh-oes!

Mary Arnett
“So far, the conservative pumps have been the biggest sellers” – Mary Arnett

 

 

This week I bring you a very interesting blog post! You know how many of us women hate to walk on a quiet hallway with heels because, you feel like the sound of the clickety-clack could be heard all the way from the other side of the building?  Well I bring you a  shoe created by Mary Arnett; she founded “Ssh-oes” which it silences the sound on the heels when walking. The series of high heels actually feature the brand’s patented noise reducing heel tip that works as a shock-absorber, with a rubber compound found in washing machines and also dish washers to reduce the sound. Arnett has partnered with e-tailers such as Ideeli.com to hold sales. The amazing shoes retail for $70 to $80, and the shoes are available for immediate delivery.

Resort Fashion 2015: Versace

Everyone already knows what’s going on for the current Spring and upcoming Fashion trends. This summer, though, let’s get away from the usual and take a cruise towards the rich and fabulous for this year’s inside look at 2015′s Resort Fashion runway pieces! With Versace’s line, nothing says fancy like fun and quirky patterns to liven up the summer in. Versace takes it to a whole other level with her boxy shift dresses, daring designs, and sleek fashion. I love how she incorporates vivid hues of yellow, blue, and red that emanate the brightness of summer but still manages to withhold the upscale classiness of Resort wear. A few of my favorite looks are below – check ‘em out and let me know if they look like something you could wear to a yacht or you would rather toss in the sea!

Le Petit Theatre: Dior

Have you ever wondered why couture pieces cost so much? The pieces that sell for  anywhere between, $2,000-$30,000, have a certain allure since buyers know they will be able to avoid that awkward “she stole my look” moment when they show up to a party, since the garment is one of a kind. The pieces may bring peace of mind, but that’s not what designers are charging for! It’s the hours of intense, and tedious labor that ateliers put into garment. This video from Dior’s  Le Petit Theatre, shows what goes into making a custom gown that originally debuted in the spring/summer collection of 1949. They recreate the mini version of the dress!  The handiwork that it takes is just astounding!  You can watch the video HERE!
