When its time to get my “Dora the explorer” on, this Christian Louboutin backpack will have to come along for the adventure!

I’m not one for “busy” looking designs, but I have to say, I really do like this bag and its Hawaiian shirt feel! And of course, it wouldn’t be a Louboutin design without the classic stud embellishment. Again, I never caught on to the whole stud trend, but here it fits in with the style of the backpack and actually adds depth to the overall piece; making it a lot more visually stimulating. Plus, the studs bring a certain glamorous factor to it! #BackPackEnvy

Christian Louboutins are back in nude and in every shade! From flat ballerina pumps, to stilettos, T-bar heels, sophisticated court shoes pointed and peep toes; Louboutin have a shoe for every woman and better yet, they all come in an array of “skin tone” shades! So with summer around the corner (I use the term “summer” loosely in the UK), you can go nude all over- well almost!

Just when you thought an Apple Watch was wearable/ fashionable technology, the fashion designers of today tell you otherwise!

Last night’s Met Gala, saw actress Claire Danes quite literally glowing on the Red Carpet! Dressed in Zac Posen, Danes was all about the LIGHTS, Camera, Action!

Having worked for Google in the past, Posen is known for more than just embracing the evolution of technology, but bringing it to the runway and fusing his technological creativity with fashion!
The Cinderella like gown, is made from custom fibre optic woven organza; that I can only assume cost a lot and was a challenge to work with-a stylish challenge nevertheless! Although the dress is a little too bright for me (just a tad), I am impressed by the idea and given Zac Posen’s background, he is a true creative genius! All in all, it is a lovely gown and Claire Danes looked stunning in it! She really lit up the room!

…When it comes to designer handbags; Chanel handbags; it doesn’t really get better than this!

To all thoes who are still laying in bed, ahead of a lazy bank holiday Monday; enjoy! And to those [like me], who unfortunatley still have to attend work today because a “bank holiday” means very little to you; here is some motivation for your Monday morning!

When fashion is inspired by art and art is inspired by fashion; its just one big cycle; and it will continue to go around, then come back round again!

A contributor to the De Stijl art movement, Piet Mondrian was (and still is today), known for his abstract compositions of primary colours (red, blue and yellow) in a black grid of vertical and horizontal lines, against a white background; Mondrian !

His classic compositions were also used as backdrops in the fashion industry, before taking the catwalk in 1965 in the form of an A-line shift dress by Yves Saint Laurent. This iconic “Mondrian dress” was debuted in the Autumn/Winter ’65 season in both a jersey and wool knee length style shift dress.

Since then, similar dresses and other garments alike have been re-inspired and reproduced. Some taking the runway like the infamous YSL piece and others straight to high-street stores or street fashion.

…I love, love, love, this Chanel quilted lambskin backpack in classic black. These days I’ve been obsessed with backpacks and this Chanel checks all the boxes. Granted, it is a little on the large side, but I’m not complaining- I mean how can you not love it?!

The perfect combination of streetwear and high fashion, this is not your average drawstring bag; this is where sportswear meets fashion and I cannot get enough!

The lambskin leather backpack is designed in reflection of your traditional drawstring bag, featuring a quilted leather flap, finished with Chanel’s signature CC closure clasp and classic gold chain straps. There are also two open pockets on the back and the inside is lined with black fabric! I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again; how can you not love it?

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

…Oldies but goodies!

Still obsessed with orange, and as the Spring/ “Summer” season approaches, why not? Bright and colorful enough, yet also weirdly subtle enough; orange is the perfect winter warmer and summer pop (color)! And as for Celine; need I say anymore? When it comes to fashion and designer handbags, Celine is always in the equation!

So know that when it is time to purchase the infamous Celine bag, the warm color between red and yellow on the light spectrum is likely to be in the picture! Whether it is a classic Luggage, Trio or Trapeze bag, small Trotteur or Shoulder bag; in a single solid block color, duo or multicolored; my Celine handbag will feature orange!

FullSizeRender-3…These Nike Huaraches are aaa-mazzz-iiinng! I never thought I’d be so pro trainers but these days I’m opting for the comfort of a good pair of kicks on a night out, rather than arch aching killer heels. Do not get me wrong, I will forever be obsessed with fabulous shoes; especially when it comes to a pair of designer heels that I’ve been eyeing up for months, while I save/ spontenous splurge; however you simple can not go wrong with practicality and comfy reliable footware. Plus, these particular trainers are gorgeous! Yes I said it! They are amazing; the colour, suede mix, style, petite little size…you name it; the perfect pair of Huaraches! #WishList
