Guiseppe Zanotti + Anja Rubik Cutout Suede Pumps

I’ve been a little shoe-obsessed for the past few months as I’m sure readers of our blog can tell! But these get my endorsement for best pumps of 2013. Even better, they’re currently on-sale at Net-a-Porter as one of the site’s biggest bargains with around $500 off.

Anja Rubik’s five piece capsule collection for Zannotti was inspired by her favorite musicians, David Bowie and Debbie Harry. The shoes feature only black leather and suede fabrics, stiletto heels, and gold metal detailing. These shoes may be simple but they have a wide appeal and can be paired with anything from an LBD to a YSL tuxedo!

Erykah Badu: The New Face of Givenchy’s Spring 2014 Campaign

Ricardo Tisci, the man credited with ‘discovering’ Joan Smalls and others, has decided to appoint critically-acclaimed musician Erykah Badu as the new face of his latest campaign which boasts African and Japanese influences. The new campaign will only feature women of color, and is a bold and much needed step from such a prominent figure in the fashion industry.

The 'Spoof' Tee

Seeing as I own 4, I thought it would make sense to write up a post on the notorious spoof tee. Everyone from celebrities to children are wearing these cool, edgy and extremely witty tops which play on the name of designer brands. Here are a list of some of my favourites which are also pictured.

Beyoncé's New Visual Album

Christmas came early with Beyonce’s surprise release of her fifth and latest album. 30 second video teasers for the tracks are available via her VEVO channel. However, my absolute favorite has to be Yoncé featuring Jourdan Dunn, Chanel Iman, and Joan Smalls. Goodbye Sasha Fierce, hello high fashion Yoncé.

Beyoncé sports many different looks in her video and is on point as usual. The fact that she’s already filmed 17 videos to accompany each track is an amazing feat in itself coupled with the fact that her album hit #1 in 72 countries within the first day. Great collaborations on her self-titled album range from Drake to Frank Ocean to Jay Z, of course, and even Blue Ivy!

It’s safe to say Queen Bey is killing the game. Without any promotion, single releases, album covers, she avoided the possibility of an album leak and gave her fans something they could never have expected. I’ve already bought this album (of course) and you better too unless you want to experience a serious case of FOMO!

Aquazzura Sloane Cutout Suede Sandals

Grey Suede

Red Suede

Black Suede

While looking for the perfect shoes to wear to a white party, I came across these. They’ve been spotted on the feet of many including Olivia Palermo and have become one of the season’s must have sandals. 

They pop in every color and accentuate every outfit. Their suede upper adds some extra texture and intrigue to these shoes as does their unique cutout and lace-up design. Essentially, these shoes are the perfect balance of simplicity and complexity. Hopefully soon to be on the feet of yours truly…
