SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Alexander McQueen

It’s no secret that Alexander McQueen and skulls go together like man buns & tattoos, or affliction jeans & bad taste (oops, did I go there?).  These black leather boots feature the trademark Swarovski-crystals embellished skull emblem on the Perspex heel of the boot.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Nicholas Kirkwood

Nicholas Kirkwood is one of my favorite designers, and Pac Man is one of my absolute favorite arcade games.  So, when I came across these ‘Eden Pacman‘ heels by Nicholas Kirkwood, naturally, it was love at first sight.

Check out these beauties below.  These would look amazing paired with straight-leg, high-waisted trousers (preferably in the colors red, yellow, or blue) and a chic black cropped sweater.

5 Style Mistakes That Are Making You Look Way Older

Age is the one inevitable thing that we can’t seem to avoid.  Fortunately, we are able to express ourselves through our sense of style.  However, the last thing we want to do is make style choices that add years to our age.  Luckily, once we discover what clothing styles flatter us and which don’t, we can avoid those unflattering styles that are making you look much older.  Take these tips to keep your style vibrant and full of life.

The Color Black

While black clothing has always been hailed as the figure-flattering color, and works for almost every occasion, it unfortunately can make you look older.  While it does give the appearance of slimming your figure, it can also emphasize dark lines under the chin, shadows around the eyes and wrinkles on the face, according to The Daily Mail.  The solution?  Avoid wearing black in areas that frame the face, such as in scarves, hats, turtlenecks, and high-collared shirts and coats, and instead, opt for black in bottoms and in low-cut dresses and tops.  Adding a colorful necklace or scarf will help to brighten up your complexion,

Shapeless Clothing

Petite-style-tips-oversized-clothes.jpg

Belt it, cinch it, do whatever it is you have to do to give your clothing a bit of shape to accentuate your figure.  No matter what size you are, whether you are a 00 or overweight, shapeless, oversized clothing is not doing you any favors, and is making you look much larger than you are.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Charlotte Olympia

Charlotte Olympia is inarguably one of the most innovative shoe designers of today.  Diana Vreeland is recognized as “The Empress of Fashion”, and was a fashion icon of her day.  These sandals by Charlotte Olympia are inspired by the late and great Diana Vreeland and her unique and fashion-forward style.  The architectural details and luxurious textures make these sandals truly remarkable.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Chiara Ferragni

Chiara Ferragni, the well-known fashion blogger who goes by the name of The Blonde Salad.  The street style starlet has collaborated with many well-known designers, including the likes of Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior, Tommy Hilfiger, and J.

While her collection of flats are absolutely stunning, she has recently come out with more heels in her namesake fashion line (much to my excitement!).  These comic-book inspired mules are both fun and fashion-forward.  Wear them with a pair of high-waisted, cropped skinny jeans and a white t-shirt or paired with a simple red shift dress to complete the look.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Rochas

Rochas never ceases to amaze me with their innovative, yet delicately romantic designs.  Take, for example, these beautiful velvet floral-print embroidered platform pumps below, which are a perfect transitional piece to wear this summer and layered with tights for the upcoming fall and winter season.

For summer, pair them with a loose-fitting swing dress and floppy hat for a chic and feminine look.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Roberto Cavalli

Fringe can easily take on the bohemian feel of the wild west, or embody the lavish glamour of the 1920’s and 1930’s.  These sandals are a shining example of the latter.  Covered in an ornate gold color, these exude all of the beauty and charm of old hollywood that only film noir seems to capture so eloquently.

Pair these sandals with a simple LBD, red lipstick, and as much gold jewelry as your heart desires (which is always too much, right ladies?).
