Now that we are heading towards fall, it’s all about adopting the various fall trends and preparing for the new season. One of the biggest trends that has already begun to make an appearance is the smoking loafer. It’s super simple, chic and very sophisticated. I love it with a pair of straight legged jeans or a maxi dress. These cool loafers come in a wide variety of fabrics and materials including velvet, leather and rhinestones. They are also a wonderful way to add color and texture to an otherwise basic look – think bright pink loafers with a pair of black pants and a white button down shirt. Love them!
Christian Louboutin has become a household name due to his extremely gorgeous and expensive shoe designs for women. A laundry list of celebrities including Jennifer Lopez, Zoe Saldana, Kim Kardashian, Beyonce and many more swear by his amazing heels with the signature red bottoms. Well, it looks like men can now get in on some Louboutin action with the launch of his men’s shoe line. The shoes range in price from $500 – $3500 and are quite flamboyant. From studded sneakers to bedazzled topsiders, these shoes are not for the traditional sporty type or a classic man. You will definitely need to be someone who loves fashion and is into the flashy look. What do you think fellas? Would you rock these expensive sneakers? Are men’s Christian Louboutin’s something that will sell big or are they a quick fad?
I have to admit that I have become one of those shoe obsessed women who would rather shoe shop than clothes shop any day. You put me in a store with rows and rows of sexy sky high stilettos, pumps, wedges and platforms and I am in absolute bliss. One of my newest obsessions is the upscale designer shoe collection from Brian Atwood. OMG! Gorgeous! The man knows his way around a woman’s foot. He has created some of the most sought after shoes in the fashion industry. From A-list celebs to models and fashionistas, Brian Atwood has made a name for himself by crafting unique styles which utilize different fabrics and materials. Check out a few of my favorite styles for summer!
Christian Louboutin has the world at his fingertips. With a shoe empire worth multi-millions, he has singlehandedly changed the shoe game with his red bottom heels that have women around the world saving up their pennies. Looks like total shoe domination isn’t enough for Christian. He now has his sights set on conquering the world of beauty. He recently announced a partnership with Battalure Beauty, the same firm that created collections for Sephora and several other major retailers.
“Beauty products also have to do with empowering women,” Louboutin told WWD, as he strives for his footwear to do.
The collection will include a wide range of products from lipsticks to eye shadows to foundation. Even though there are no current prototypes, it is pretty safe to assume that the line will be ultra modern, luxurious and have some sort of decadent red packaging which is a trademark of Louboutin’s incredible shoe line. Expect the line to hit stores in mid-2013. I’m already imagining women clamoring for his entire beauty collection. Now we can all own a little a piece of Louboutin.
So the fact that everything is bright and bold this spring has seriously made me want to run out and add as much color to my look as possible. One of my favorite ways to do so is with shoes and accessories! I recently came across a gorgeous Mary Jane platform heel in hot pink that I had to have. It is super chic, fun and very easy to wear. It also gives you just the right amount of sass with a little class added in for measure. It wears well and is a great statement shoe for the spring and summer. Wear with dresses, skirts, shorts and jeans for the ultimate sexy, feminine look!
