When the hot and sexy, yet oh so sophisticated Louboutins you want, don’t just have a “Red Bottom” but are red all over! – Plus, there’s a stunning studded shoulder bag to match!
[see what i did there?!]

Red Christian Louboutins would never have been my first choice, however these red Anjalina stilettos lightly embellished with gold studs, are gorgeous! Personally, I’m not big on the studs trend, but the few used here (rather than in excess, as typically fashioned) work to this particular shoe’s advantage. Its as if each stud was well thought through in regards to positioning and delicately placed on the beautiful red leather- and I love it! This is definitely the kind of style i’d go for, when it comes to a red studded heel! #WishList

The long awaited red carpet moment at the 72nd Golden Globe awards and this is what happened… 

As 3 of my favourites, this is extremely disappointing. Left to Right; Bridesmaid‘s Melissa McCarthy wears a completely original and somewhat hideous ensemble made with items from her wardrobe, sewn together. Homemade is all good and well, but when it looks like that, its most definitely is a no go! Don’t get me wrong, the top isn’t half bad but the way in which it has been attached to that awful frilly skirt completely ruins the outfit. Minus the frills and maybe an A-line instead, the hilarious and loveable actress could have made “homemade” work on the red carpet.

In the middle, is Kerry Washington. Known for her dominant role as Olivia Pope on Scandal, Washington is more often than not, dressed very chic, classy and some would say conservative; both on and off set; so what happened here? Typically in the spot light at these events for her sense of style, amazing outfits and fashion forward appearance, Kerry Washington’s stylist made a major error on Sunday night. Wearing an off the shoulders Mary Katrantzou dress, Miss Washington looks extremely stiff, almost awkward and certainly out of place (compared to her usual “stunning-ness”) at this year’s Golden Globes.

Finally, on the right is Orange is the New Black‘s Taryn Manning. Looking completely different to her character, Tiffany ‘Pennsatucky’ Doggett  from Netflix‘s favourite; OITNB, Manning destroys this Oscar De La Renta gown. As an all time admirer of the late, De La Renta’s work and avid OITNB fan, seeing this actually upsets me. The dress just does not go with her body shape-it does nothing for her (not without alterations anyway). Furthermore, she could have worn some different shoes; perhaps a colour pop and/or a stand-out clutch to at least try and make what should be a fabulous dress, work! What’s worse is that she has the cheek to wear peep-toe shoes and not even paint her toes; its common knowledge; if your not going to dress them up, cover them up! Just saying.

So all in all; a loveable and personal favourite actress of mines, Melissa McCarthy, proved not to be so funny. As a Scandal obsessed fan and lover of all things Kerry Washington, i’m disappointed in her recent stunt and last but not least (well maybe), another representation of a TV show favourite (OITNB) has failed to impress off screen and made an Oscar De La Renta look bad. #SayNoToTheDress

As well as having just started the Netflix series and becoming absolutely addicted, I have been a little obsessed with orange a while now. From an accessories colour pop to dresses, jumpers and jewellery; orange is definitely the new black.

With a trip to a designer outlet I purchased my latest Marc Jacobs editions; an orange leather clutch and a case for my new phone. Knowing my birthday was approaching, of course I convinced myself it was ok to spend and feed my Marc addiction. Guilty. However, with a new orange bag, needs a new pair of orange shoes, so here they are. The Balenciaga Glove wedge sandals in orange are one of my best designer buys to date-I love them. In regards to fashion, they are the epitome of “Orange is the new Black”! #Love

More often than not, fashion enables us to read people; often like a book, sometimes like Vogue but most of the time like a free newspaper. I know they say you must not "judge a book by its cover" , but When it comes to fashion, its too easy to make assumptions and pass judgement. Whether you're eyeing up some one's bag, shoes, entire outfit or just their general sense of style; there is always a question, remark, comment or compliment in mind. I am definitely guilty of this. Guilty of starring at someone's bag; either trying to figure out who designed it, how much it cost and why they have it instead of me. Guilty of seeking out the perfect Chanel bag; hanging on the arms of strangers. Guilty of looking at people from head-to-toe when I think an outfit is either hideous or fabulous.  As much as we shouldn't judge people and as wrong as it is; its something we are all guilty of. Lets face it, when it comes to fashion, it just can't be helped. Check out these kool homemade clutch bags, that look like books. As cute, quirky and unique as these clutches are, they also come with a unique and not so cute price tag. But hey, if you got it, flaunt it. I know I'd rather have a book for a bag, rather than a book in my bag. Looks over books eh?!

I don’t know if its because of the orange and my new likening to the fluorescent colour, the fact that it matches my Marc Jacobs watch, or now because it is on sale, but I really love this Pied A Terre clutch. The clear one I absolutely adore and that’s probably because its the closest I am going to get to a Chanel- clear lego clutch, in a while. I can’t quite pin point my fascination but I am definitely adding a square/rectangular/ cube clutch to my wish list. ooh yhh!

As much as “I heart NY”, may heart also belongs in a designer bag. Currently on a cheeky trip to New York, I came across these BEAUTIES, in the city’s most luxurious shopping district; Madison Avenue and Fifth Avenue! With block after block of designer flagships, I knew I was in the right place. Now in this concrete jungle, I’m just waiting for ” my dreams to comes true” so I can purchase a bag or five!
