Punk trends at the MET Ball 2013

Monday evening all Hollywood A-listers and fashion celebrities walked the red carpet of the annual Costume Institute Gala in New York. The theme this year was “Punk: from chaos to couture”. A topic that is completely on trend, but oh my God… I have never seen so many missers on a red carpet. But let’s not focus on the bad, let’s highlight some of the punk trends we spotted:

Rocking lace + sheer dresses

More is More: the pant + dress

Pointy T-strap heels

White punk hair

Big & shiny head accessories

Caroline Issa X L.K. Bennett

London based brand LK Bennett has collaborated with fashion icon and street style star Caroline Issa. The capsule shoe collection is very fun and colorful. While designing the collection, Caroline used her recent trip to Thailand as inspiration. And that resulted in this must-have collection! I love it, from the shoes to the clutches… even the kitten heels look cool! It’s such a fresh difference from what LK Bennett normally does.

Collection is available online and selected stores.

New Shoe Parade

I am proud to present to you my sales treasures.
The pink ones I bought last week in San Francisco, they are BCBGeneration. I just fell in love with the cherry pink color. The snakeskin platforms are from LK Bennet are were just too teasing too leave them behind in the store. And last but not least, the Prada sandals from the Flame-collection. These were co-funded by my boyfriend (Danke Schatzi). And actually he encouraged me to buy them, so I wouldn’t dare to argue against that…

Chloe Jade Green New Shoe Collection

Chloe Green, the daughter of Topshop owner Sir Philip Green, took to London’s Dover Street Arts Club Tuesday night to unveil her debut footwear collection. She presented eight, green-soled shoes she has designed under her new CJG label, which stands for Chloe Jade Green. The line will be available at Topshop’s Oxford Circus store in London on May 17 and will also be sold via Topshop.com.

Having a look at the picture below…not really my cup of tea. One things is for sure, if you are tall and wear them on a night out, you will definitely not pick up any guys. Who wants to date a giant?!

Color Blocking Shoes

The economy is not going as it should be, but that is not making us depressed. We continue to bring color into our wardrobe. And onto our feet. I think I can out myself here as a shoe fanatic and I am very proud of myself that I managed to wait until my 19th post to write something about them.

Theme of today: the color blocking shoe.  The real dare-devils out there can fit them perfectly with a color blocking outfit. But for those who don’t want to take the risk ending up at the clown department, they will easily pimp up your neutral colored outfit.

Here is a selection of the finest:

Christian Louboutin            Sergio Rossi

Geox                                    Brian Atwood

Pierre Hardy                            Zara
