All the fabulous shoes on this even more fabulous list were most definitely not made for walking (except maybe for one lonely pair of flats, but even those are way too fancy and hence I wouldn’t dare to walk in out of fear of getting them dirty)
However, who cares if these shoes were not made for long hikes or an afternoon of frantic Christmas shopping (i.e. my forte)? After all, isn’t the only walking activity you will be doing on Christmas simply wobbling from the kitchen to the dinner table? Surely you will be able to manage that in these high-heeled beauties? So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and buy them!
If my words for some odd reason haven’t convinced you to buy a pair of awesome shoes, maybe these pictures will be able to persuade you. (Btw, for once I tried to remain realistic and listed only those shoes that are actually affordable. So no designer shoes this time, but splendid beauties from Asos and Topshop that will only set you back for a maximum of 100 euros! What a bargain!)
These are from Asos:
These are from Topshop:
And for those women who get soar feet merely from looking at these pictures, there is always this option:
I love fashion all year round. Every second of every hour of every day. There are moments, however, when my inner fashion diva goes in absolute fashion overdrive. When a very cool trend hits the runways or even when I just see a very awesome outfit online, I simply can’t stop thinking about it. I literally have dreams about it. Dreams of me wearing said awesome outfit and totally rocking it. This continuous “daydreaming” (a very euphemistic term for the scarier word “hallucination” 😉 ) will not stop until I have that outfit hanging in my closet.
I am currently going through such a fashion frenzy and the leading role in my very own Hollywood fashion movie daydream (besides a very stylish me) is the outfit above from River Island. I want it so bad, I get heart palpitations merely thinking of it.
I am a huge River Island fan. Sometimes I think this shop was created with the sole purpose of providing me with clothes. However, there are two tiny little issues:
a) What if my local River Island shop doesn’t have the outfit? :
I saw the clothes on the River Island website, so there is no absolute guarantee that I will actually find them in the River Island store in Antwerp. More importantly, they have to have my size! I can hear you all thinking: “ Just order them online, you idiot!”
Good point. But I prefer trying clothes on first, before buying them. (Oh God, I sound like my mother!)
b) What if the clothes don’t fit and I look nothing like the cool chick I had in mind?
No matter how hard you may want a certain outfit, sometimes when you put it on, it just SUCKS!
So this is where you come in, dear readers! I want you all to knock on wood/ cross your fingers/ light a candle/ pray that the very cool outfit will end up in my closet! Maybe we could all do a cyber- telekinesis-séance kinda thing? Who’s with me?! 😉
Ps: The shoes and necklace are not from River Island. It was just to give you an idea of what I would wear it with.
The exams are finally over and I think I deserve a break. (No, scratch that: I definitely deserve a break! ) And what better way to treat yourself after months of studying than to go on a city trip to London, right?!! Oh yes, this girl is about to go on a shopping frenzy! Oxford Street, prepare yourself!
London is without a doubt my favourite city in the world. I love the atmosphere, the people, the food (!!!) and of course the shops!
However, this means you’ll have to miss me for a couple of days, dear readers!
Please, don’t cry!
I’ll be back with more fashion, more food and more flirts, I promise!
I’ll be reporting about all the things I’ll have bought (hopefully a lot!), all the things I’ll have eaten (hopefully a lot!) and all the celebrities I’ll have spotted (hopefully … at least one! Gwyneth Paltrow, you better watch out 😉 )
So see you in a couple of days, dear readers!
“ When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life.”
For those fashionistas who thought they could just sit back, relax and eat cake until spring arrived and the weather was good enough to bring out the summer wardrobe, think again: Bare midriffs are a huge trend this spring, so you better think twice before eating that second slice of sticky caramel- banana cake!
Not only designers like Marc Jacobs used glimpses of midriff in their spring collections, shops like River Island, Forever 21 and Topshop are selling crop tops as well. And let’s not forget all those stylish celebrities who are already incorporating bare midriffs in their day-to-day fashion.
This is my favourite crop top from Topshop:
Pair your crop top/blouse/jumper with a high-waisted skirt or trousers for a sophisticated look and NEVER opt for a bare bellybutton outfit! Unless you want to look like Britney Spears in her “Hit me baby one more time” period. (Which you don’t.)
I have to admit that, although I totally love this look, I haven’t yet figured out how I am actually going to wear this on a day-to-day basis. Unfortunately, God hasn’t blessed me with a sun-kissed skin like Naya Rivera, and I definitely don’t have Rihanna’s tremendous confidence. Not to mention that this look isn’t really suitable for attending classes at University. Or for a day at the office…

And Rihanna in a very cool combo of orange and purple.
On the other hand, I would really really really like to wear it! 😉
What do you think about this look, fellow fashionistas? Do you dare to bare?
