Loving B Brian Atwood’s Pre Fall Shoes!

I am absolutely loving B Brian Atwood's Pre Fall Shoes (all available at Neiman Marcus).


Brian Atwood's B line was launched in Fall 2011 and is a mix of Upper East Side Poshness, Downtown cool, along with a Parisian sophistication. Each design incorporates sexy and aggressive silhouettes.


And the best part is that the prices are fairly affordable (ok I am comparing to Louboutins!!!) with shoes priced between $300 - $600.

My favorites in the Pre Fall collection are -


Francoise Crystal-Detail Suede Platform Pump - $395
These awesome shoes are so neutral that they can be worn with jeans or a dress. I absolutely love the the crystals on the back of the shoe, leaves an impression when you enter or leave a room!


Strappy Cage Sandal - $400
I love the vibrant combination of red and 
fuchsia pink. These shoes are plain sexy and can be worn with a little LBD or with slim ankle length pants. When you wear these shoes, they should be the focal point of your outfit.


Fontanne Colorblock Snakeskin Platform Pump - $350
I am a big fan of color blocking and of snakeskin accessories so this combination is unbeatable for me. The colors are fairly neutral and could easily be worn with so many outfits.





Chain Fringe Sandal - $400
These shoes are plain gorgeous. The chains provide such a nice movement when you walk.

Christian Louboutin’s 20 Year Anniversary!


If you are a shoe-lover then take note that this year marks the 20th anniversary in fashion for Christian Louboutin.


In celebration of this special year, the designer has created 20 stunning shoes (one for each year) and several bags for a capsule collection. Each of the shoes represents a part of Louboutin history.

The collection, inspired by his most famous and best-loved styles, features a mixtures of flats, and his signature heels, from thigh high boots and studded platforms to dainty stilettos adorned with pretty bows.


One of the signature shoes in the capsule collection is the Pensee, the shoe that started all the red soled hysteria.  The Pensee was created in 1993, when Louboutin was dissatisfied with the contrast between the vibrant upper and the plain black sole.  In a moment of inspiration, the designer grabbed an assistant’s pot of red nail varnish (allegedly color Pantone 18, Chinese Red) and began painting.   Since then, he keeps everyone looking back for those glimpses of blood rushing red as a strong sexy woman walks past.

Below are the shoes in the capsule collection, most of which can be bought at Neiman Marcus, Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman and Net-a-Porter.com.

My Favorite Wedges for Summer.




Time to kick up your (wedge) heels!
I absolutely love this time of year when we get to bring out our wedges. Not only are they ultra comfortable but also extremely stylish.
This season they are so many styles and patterns (geometric prints, tribal prints, color blocked, preppy) to choose from that I'm going a bit crazy with excitement.
They look best worn with cropped ankle pants, jeans or with soft dresses.


Here are my top picks for wedges this season!
