Rene Caovilla

I have become a full on stalker of Rene Caovilla shoes. I was at Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills the other day and I was consumed by the most beautiful shoes.

You all know how much I love anything that sparkles, so naturally these shoes are for me.

I am attending a dear friend’s wedding at the end of June and am deciding between a glitzy dress with plain shoes or a classic dress with stunning shoes. These gorgeous black satin shoes that are fully encrusted with the most sparkly stones have made it to the top of my wish list. The only problem is they are $1695! Thus, why I have become their stalker. The minute these beauties go on sale, they will be on my feet and I will never take them off. A Cinderella moment of sorts, but no prince or step sisters.

I have noticed many brands doing embellished shoes, but Rene Caovilla exudes elegance. Some of the other brands, though still pricey, radiate more of a bedazzled at home with a glue gun look. While I do appreciate a good craft project, I will leave it up to the pros when it comes for fancy footwear.

These shoes should be the standout part of the outfit and not compete with any other accessory. Keep the dress simple and you will for sure be on the best dressed list.

What a Steal for the Perfect Floral Heel

I have been wanting a pair of floral heels to get me in the mood for spring. I stalked the internet and found the perfect pair at Nordstrom by Halogen.

The heels have a beautiful multi color floral pattern, black base, and heel. They have lots of padding in the foot bed and look more expensive than they are. I love how my pair has symmetrical large white roses at the front of the toe and the height is perfect at 4 1/4″ and goes well with both jeans and skirts. I love using a print as a focal point of an outfit and this floral motif is the perfect way to do that. There are many pairs by designer brands that are stunning, but these pointy toe pumps are a steal at  $89.95. I see myself wearing these beauties to lunch with the girls or on a lovely Valentine’s Day date.

They are classy, beautiful, and comfortable and can be purchased at http://www.nordstrom.com

Who Wears the Pants??

Feminine dressing doesn’t always need to be in skirt or dress form. Zuhair Murad’s Spring 2015 collection proves that pants can be just a ladylike as the best dresses.

The intricate beading, tribal prints, sleek cuts, and deep v necklines of the line’s jackets and pants evoke the most luxurious, dreamlike, powerful silhouettes I have seen in a while. I am really drawn to the idea of wearing pants to a red carpet event in lieu of a party dress. Why let the men have all the fun? The beauty of wearing pants is the sitting situation, exiting a car, and cold shoulder problems of wearing a skirt are instantly solved. There is also something so great about the fluid lines and length of a well tailored suit that adds stature and presence to your overall look. The illusion of height is an added bonus as well. The 90’s were filled with boxy suits and over stuffed shoulder pads, but this dress take on the suit, with the right embellishments is a look that is here to stay. The jackets can even be worn over a plain sheath dress or with a tank and jeans for a night out with the girls. The possibilities are endless when working with perfectly fitted items. I have included my two favorite looks of dress versus pants below. You decide what works for you. image
