Jimmy Choo FW’14 Campaign

Are we excited or are we excited about the Jimmy Choo FW’14 campaign? I think, we are are excited. I love it when a campaign ad can tell us exactly how stellar the line to be released is going to be. This is no exception. If you follow @JimmyChoo on instagram you probably would have spotted the booties below already. So slender and chic!

I’m loving the solidity of the product- the lines, the texture and the no-fuss simplicity of the footwear. As for the bags? Fur. Bags. You know I am a smitten kitten. Also, I appreciate how the oversized shoulder bags keep with traditional styles and design from the labels past.

You can tell me that it is way too early but this happens to me every year, I walk around by mid July and all I can think of is boots and the weather starting cooling down. Am I crazy? Probably. While I LOVE beautiful balmy weather, there is something about it being slightly more crisp outside that I love just a teeny tiny bit more. main-3.original.585x0

Nailed It? Christian Louboutin Dabbles in the Beauty World

Well, maybe we saw it coming, or maybe you are rolling your eyes as another designer dabbles in the beauty world. Regardless, if it weren’t for red polish in the first place, we wouldn’t have red soles on our feet.

Christian Louboutin is releasing his first polish at Saks Fifth Ave (and later on Aug. 6 at places like Barneys and Sephora) in the colour- you guessed it- “Rouge”. Chip Resistant, bright in hue, it honestly sounds like just another polish, but for the $50 being charged for it, let’s hope it creates as much magic on our nails as it did once on a pair of bland looking soles.

Will I be grabbing a bottle? My gut is saying no but the impulsive shopper in me might beg to differ.

What do you think? Worth it? Or no? And the casing?

Meant to represent a stiletto obv, but also perhaps taking on the personality of a beautiful letter opener or a chic garden gnome hat… Pictures courtesy of Citizens of Fashion.

Slip On

Michael Kors Keaton Slip On

Unless you live under a rock, you will have noticed that this print is absolutely everywhere right now. Perhaps I live under a rock because I am unsure as what to call it. It isn’t quite cow print, and not really dalmatian. Regardless, I love it and these are one of the most sensible pairs of shoes I own. Pictured above: Michael Michael Kors Keaton slip on in… whatever that print is called. Rag and Bone denim.

Outfit of the Day

bcbg adele printed wrap dressBy no means am I the Duchess of Cambridge, but I have to say that I was quite proud of my efforts today and gave her a run for her money in regards to style and charity. I took my Adele printed (such a pretty print!) wrap dress from BCBG out for a spin this afternoon. Accompanied with my Valentino Rockstud pumps, and Burberry bag in Dusky Mauve (pre Fall exclusive! The colour is SOOO pretty!!!) I was pretty good to go.

Hands Up

Ah, another novelty design by Charlotte Olympia. I’ve been sharing a lot of her work lately but I keep finding all these delightfully kitschy (yet just charming enough) designs that I just find so worth sharing with you. Don’t worry, I’ll be sure to share some boring pairs with you soon enough.

Anyway, what is our verdict on these Hands Up pumps? I think they are cute, yet subtle enough to pass as a basic cut out bootie (below). Regardless, they’d certainly make anyone do a double take. The sling back pair, pictured above might be a little more daring but I like them too for other reasons: Toe shape, dual tone, and how she didn’t just revert to her Dolly design to make her inspiration for this design come to life. It is another round of applause for C.O. in my books.

Chuckwagon Sunday in High River

I had a great time out in High River tonight attending my *gasp* FOURTH round of chuckwagon racing this summer. There isn’t much I love more than a good chuckwagon race, and coming home to some saskatoon berry pie. Well, maybe a good pair of boots to accompany me on the adventure!

It was a cold, windy, and slightly wet afternoon but the track started to dry as soon as the sun decided to come out. You can see how I clung to my hot chocolate for a bit of warmth. Wearing my BCBG jacket (one of my favourites!) and Tom Ford sunglasses. As for the beach waves? Yeah, they come naturally to me.

I’d hate to tell you that I have 7 pairs of cowboy boots. I’d rather show you by wearing a different pair each day of the week. These are the latest from Lammles. I was wearing them in a Stampede post earlier this month but here you can see some detail a bit better.

Tory Burch Amanda Chain Wallet

Tory Burch Amanda Chain Wallet

I know that I’ve shown this in a couple other posts but I feel like it is so great I have to share again. I have had my Amanda Chain Wallet by Tory Burch at my side for the majority of the summer. I usually am one to carry some sort of over sized bag, big enough to hold everything I need and more to the point that it weighs me down. However, the freedom granted from a tiny cross body has been great. Sure, I only carry a few things, but that really is the point isn’t it? Not to take everything everywhere I go. It is small and sleek, lays flat against me (another feature I love. My Marc by Marc Jacobs is about the same size but I find that it gets bulky fast) and is big enough to hold my phone, keys and a lipstick. My favourite part? It travels well, it is small enough to detach the chain and use as a wallet inside one of my other obnoxiously huge purses. What is your favourite crossbody?

Just Some Basics

I stopped by Sephora yesterday to refill a few of my favourite products that I use on a daily basis. Everything I grabbed is really basic, but that is good, right? I swear by all of these and  find myself reaching for them again and again. A good product really makes a different. If you’re in the market to try something new, I recommend any of these.

Urban Decay Naked palette

I discovered Smashbox’s Photo Finish Primer last summer and haven’t looked back. It goes on like silk, is light weight and allows any makeup I put over it to last all day and night.  While on the topic of primer, Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer Potion- anti ageing is another that I use on a daily basis. Once again, a very smooth, silky product that goes on light and doesn’t allow my eye shadow to crease. Not sure as to why I get the anti ageing one other than the fact that I want to avoid looking old and yoda-like for as long as possible. YSL mascara is a definite favourite of mine. Over time I’ve grown to love it above all the other mascaras I’ve tried. It is just so…. black… and perfect. It makes the world a better place. As for the Urban Decay Naked Palette, do I need to see much. Sort of a cult classic in the beauty bloggers world it really does have everything you’d need. I’ve always loved MAC eye shadows and will forever be a fan but ever since I picked up the Naked 3 last year, I find myself looking at UD products more and more. I especially love this as I LOVE neutral/neautral metallic tones.
