…When you become more and more in love with Mansur Gavriel.
The duo; Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel first had my attention with their bucket bags; but as of late I am obsessed with backpacks; so when I saw these, I became a true Mansur Gavriel fan. To be honest, even if I wasn’t going through a backpack phase- I’d find it hard not to be drawn to these beauties. Especially, since I love love love orange and this dusty powder pink is trending right now. Granted, there are an array of colours to select from, however the above pair couldn’t be more perfect!
The backpacks are so simply in style yet make such an impact as a fashion item. As simple as Mansur Gavriel’s designs are known to be, their inspirations from “the contrast of warm, natural textures and the clear, clean intensity of pop colors” are strongly and consistently represented; making each “simple” piece far from Plain Jane but more of a statement piece contender. Designed in New York with great attention to detail and made in Italy with the finest materials, Mansur Gavriel are really starting to stamp their mark – and I can not get enough!
Backpack envy much?!
…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!

…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
For a while now I have had my eye on Sophia Webster and everything she is about. Granted, her designs can be weird and wacky, but they are also very unique, creative, quirky and fun. Plus, you need a bit of weird and wacky for that statement shoe!
Based on how different Webster is as a shoe designer, together with originality that comes through season after season, I always thought I’d go Sophia Webster when I went for that statement pair of designer shoes. And I think that specific time is fast approaching!
The above design is not so weird and wacky per se, however they are certainly different and quite the statement piece. The khaki geometric aztec pattern is pretty cool (finished in calf hair might I add) and made all the more interesting with the clear insert placed just before the metallic pink pointed toe. The cylinder shaped 4″ heel is also perfect; its not too typically stiletto nor is it your classic “thick heel”; its the perfect combination of both, and at just the right height too! The entire ensemble is the epitome of unique when it comes to the style of female footwear- and I love love love it!
Sometimes its ok to let go and give in to your heart’s desire. Even if it is your materialist heart’s desire. Life is too short, so if you really want something, go after it – even if it is Louboutins, Manolos, Sophia Websters or Rockstud Valentinos!
After all, if you can’t treat yourself, who can? –Thats my moto anyway!
When its time to invest in some Manolos, this is where I’ll start!
Where shoes are concerned, I love love love suede. Also, the structure is cool and quirky yet simple and elegant at the same time- right up my street! The red colour pop is fabulous too. All in all, these will be the perfect addition to my designer shoe collection! #WishList
Admittedly, as much as I love designer shoes, Manolo Blahniks were never my first choice. However, having watched Carrie Bradshaw and shoe obsession (Manolo Blahniks in particular) for years; I have slowly yet surely been convinced. Thus, several re-runs of Sex and the City later; I decided I wanted a pair and now I’ve found that pair, so WILL eventually invest! And hey, as a fashion enthusiast, its only right to own such. So whether they’re a staple or statement, classic or seasonal; a pair of Manolo Blahniks (heels of course!) are a wardrobe must. #WatchThisSpace
