Leopard Print Love

My style crush, Taylor Tomasi Hill, was snapped at one of the recent Fashion Weeks, looking as uber stylish and cool as ever.
I am in love with the brightly colored pants - and the fur is just too fabulous!!
Then happened to stumble across these Christian Louboutin Fifi courts - and the cerise/magenta sequins in the leopard print design reminded me of the pants.
Absolute perfection.......

Crew is for Colour

In scouring the net doing research for next summer's ranges, one of my have spots of inspiration color-wise has been J Crew. Their Jan and Feb catalogues were just bursting with all the new bright pallete shades and wow - they are AMAZING!! Getting excited about my upcoming trip to NYC and Vegas in March. Gonna shop up a storm of color for my new summer wardrobe.....

I have a pair of these Cece flats that I got in the most gorgeous shade of Rust last  Sept! The leather truly feels like butter on my feet - have worn them to death.

Kourtney K's Snakeskin Heels

Kourtney Kardashian was snapped recently, making a stop at her Dash Calabasas store to keep a quick eye over things. The soon mom-to-be of a little baby girl (as it was announced yesterday), was wearing colored denim and totally fabulous python skinned Louboutin pumps.

Snakeskin (in all it's forms - metallic hues, colored versions, etc) is proving to be a massive look in footwear. The above report was posted by StyleSite late last year - showing how good it looks in a court shoe silhouette.

Metallic Mania

I have been noticing a lot of metallic highlights lately. 
Absolutely love the all over high shine, liquid patent looks.
And the colored metallics are just to die for.
May be a bit daring for most - but a touch a sparkle and shine never let any girl down......

Manolo Blahnik for J Crew

Some shoe news from New York Fashion Week this week is that J Crew have announced a collaboration with shoe guru Manolo Blahnik.
The pump master will be launching a range of his BB Pumps - classic pointy toe court shoe silhouettes - for the american retailer's J Crew Collection range. 
The range is set to launch for Fall this year. 
This really speaks to the strength of the court shoe trend.
So expect to see a lovely range of court shoes come September in florals, glitters and fabulous coloured leathers!
