I was excited when the invite for the Christian Louboutin s/s12 preview dropped through my letter box as I love knowing that my clients are at the top of the list for all the new amazing red soled beauties coming in for the season ahead and I get to sneak a few orders in too!
I chose to wear my new Topshop booties which I am in love with, I know it was probably a cheeky choice considering I was off to walk amongst red soles but I was desperate to wear them!!!! My Topshop faux leather leggings, I got these last year but they have done a very similar pair this year, go get a pair.. http://www.topshop.com/ I rock these with both heels and high-tops I love them and wear them a lot during the winter. On the subject of leather leggings I am searching for a pair of genuine leathers at the moment. There are so many great pairs out there but just cant seem to find a pair that are skin tight (which I think leather trousers/leggings need to be) but that accommodate my bum (which is a lot bigger than the rest of me! Not complaining just want things to fit in all the right places!) Ill let you curvy girls know when I find 'the ones' but for you skinny minnies Les Chiffoniers do beautiful leather leggings in really cool colours and Allsaints have an amazing black leather pair in this season. My top is by Raquel Allegra who does really cool stretched cotton dip-dye tees available on http://www.net-a-porter.com/ my shearling gilet is from Topshop I got it years ago but I never throw out fur/shearling/leathers, I accessorised with my black RayBan wayfarers I don't think you can wrong with a classic wayfarer whether you are male or female they are definitely in my top 3 coolest sunglasses (also ultra feminine frames just don't suit me so this unisex style hits the spot for me) my very very old battered and beloved black Balenciaga city bag and my everyday jewellery, I do love my gold. My hair is up in what I call my 'dirty do' top knot basically when washing my hair seems like a chore too much, the dry shampoo comes out, I back comb the whole lot, put into a high pony, twist hair into a bun and secure with kirby grips.
The preview was at the Mount st store and though it was a case of 'no photographs please' hopefully with the pics I did take you will get a feel of the amazing ...truly AMAZING season that is to come! The collection is a sort of tropical fruit meets metallic spikes meets glamour puss meets Mexican sunset meets python meets beautiful traditional beading and embroidery ....the colours are to die for...I'm sure you get the gist! Truly beautiful and a really really fun collection. The event was Mexicana themed of course, latino music, fruity fun cocktails and yummy lychee champagne cocktails with mini burritos served in Louboutin newspaper too cute. My friend Esh came along with me and we had a fun and flirty evening ordering nearly the whole collection. Oh and boys and girls DAMN the high-tops are seriously serious!!! Who doesn't love a pair of red soled beauties high-tops or a killer heel <3 Viva el Sr Louboutin, an absolute genius!
