They are two of the defining footwear trends this season but for £3.50 you can mix them up. We know you love Prada’s incredible hot rod shoes of this season with their Grease Lightening racy flame detail (so do the celebs) but they are v pricey.
You’ve probably also seen the big sock + sandal craze -note we mean heeled sandal and not on men! Prada, Burberry Prorsum and Moschino all took the trend to the catwalks, which is now being embraced by brave trendsetters.
And now for the good news- you can rock hot rod flames…and socks (with sandals, not included!) thanks to Topshop…and all for £3.50. Do you dare mix and match?
Hello sunshine (at last) we can now wear 50s summer dresses and all those pastels we’ve been hoarding – hurray! And what better thing to team it with than pointy shoes and super cute retro cat’s eyes sunglasses a la Prada. Enjoy x
Who doesn’t love Scarlett Johansson’s retro style? Legendary photographer Mario Testino has captured Scarlett in sumptuous Art Deco surroundings for Vogue magazine at a time when we are all gaga for Gucci and The Great Gastby’s 1920s glamour. The only disappointment is the predictable sugary pastel cover…why?!
We will also take this opportunity to reminisce over a previous amazing Vogue Paris shoot. Ooh la la!
We’ve already seen Stella McCartney’s Olympics kit for Team GB but the competition is already hotting up as Prada is dressing the Italian team and here’s a sketch of the sailing outfit via Fashion Foie Gras.
Apparently the Prada brand will be all over the boats too, not to mention the rest of the Olympic kit, which will be pretty stylish if the sketch is anything to go by. We’re now waiting to see Ralph Lauren’s designs for Team USA…and to see if any other designers will enter the competition – Chanel for France anyone?
Another month another amazing cover. We love Victoria Beckham in silky Prada for Harper’s Bazaar. That is all!
We’ve mastered colour blocking and are now seduced by Spring’s pastel hues as well as Pantone’s ‘tangerine’ tango and sherbet lemon so some good news…bold and bright colours were a big feature of Milan Fashion Week.
Seeing as we’re drowning under a heap of Fashion Week news we won’t wax lyrical but let the colour do the talking because it’s punchy…ka-pow!
Rachel Bilson wears a punchy pink for an editorial in Lucky magazine (love the beaded t-shirt and floaty skirt combo) while Nicole Richie channels Lady Penelope in a seriously tailored number for Ocean Drive magazine.
