Designer Vs Highstreet: Proenza Schouler Booties

20 Sep

These Proenza Schouler booties have been the talk of the week what with Olivia Palermo’s repeated wearing at New York Fashion Week.

 

She showed us just how they match almost any kind of outfit.

SUEDE BOOTIES

Gorgeous, but pricey too!

 

So how about checking out our trusty shop stop ASOS, for a similar pair or two… or three!

At only £45, these are sure to sell out fast!

Olivia Palermo Style Stakes at New York Fashion Week

20 Sep

Love her or hate her… Olivia Palermo has style.    

     

As the Spring 2011 New York Fashion Week has come to a close, here is a documentation of Olivia’s style throughout the week.    

♥    

     

Fashion face-off: Kelly Brook and Olivia Palermo arrived at the Marchesa Spring/Summer show at New York Fashion Week in very similar dresses

Olivia @ Marchesa

 Whilst I like the colour and texture of the dress, I am not so keen on the shoulders.    

     

They remind me of wedding bouquets!    

     

I’m not sure about the fit of the dress either, it doesn’t really flatter Olivia’s figure,    

     

 making her look wider than she is and provides a strange shape to the bust area.     

     

The winner here is clearly those grey booties though!    

♥

Olivia @ Monique Lhuillier

    

I absolutely love the cardi!    

     

The mix of prints is a look that Olivia really knows how to pull off.    

     

The dress is okay, but the fact that shes teamed it with the gorgeous grey booties and the clashing cardi make it look alot better than if it were going solo.    

♥    

     

Olivia Palermo @ Tibi

 I really adore the structure to this dress and the tribal essence it gives off.    

     

Olivia has hit the nail on the hair with minimal accessories with a statement wrist cuff    

and warmed up the outfit with a tan clutch.    

     

Again, the grey booties….. great!    

♥    

     

Olivia Palermo Olivia Palermo attends US Weekly's 25 Most Stylish New Yorkers at Lavo on September 15, 2010 in New York, New York.    

 Here, Olivia has gone for a flirty feminine look with this dress.    

     

She has toughened it up with the studded clutch    

     

and let the black continue on into accessories such as the bow on the dress and the shoes.

Olivia is channeling the laid back military look here.    

     

The khaki skinny’s are a must have at the moment.    

     

The mix of grey, beige, black, cream and khaki look great    

     

and any combination of these colours will work provided the pieces are not overly detailed.

 I’m not overly fond of this.    

     

I do like the skirt and jacket,    

     

the colours and texture and beautiful.    

     

I think the plain grey top underneath is what lets this down,    

     

other than that the accessories are great.    

     

I would just prefer to see this with a different kind of top.

 Again, I feel Olivia is channeling the laid back military style, 

 

but for some reason this just seems a little dated to me. 

 

Love the colours and sophistication of her look. 

 

I would love to know what she is carrying around in that bag too!

 These McQueen shoe boots are amazing!

 

 

Attention!

23 Aug

I absolutely adore this IRO Shannon Silk Playsuit.

 

IRO Shannon silk playsuit

£179

 

I love the minimal shoulder detail and the masculine air it gives off.

 

The use of strong statement accessories would only enhance this piece.

 

Shop www.net-a-porter.com for some great pieces from the IRO collection.

 

 

Hervé Léger Elasticated Bandage Pants

22 Aug

Okay, so we all know about the wonderous Hervé Léger’s  Body-Con Dress.

Almost anyone who’s anyone has been snapped in one of these babies and why not?

They are gorgeous and suck in at all the right places and add killer curves where needed also.

 

Now…. how about the body con pants.

 

Forget leggings….

 

….look frumpy no more!

 

 

The funny thing is that the xx small is already sold out!

 

Which has me pondering, if you are that tiny to begin with why on earth would you need these?!

 

As well as how inevitably hard they would be to get into and out of!

 

But still, I would love a pair!
