"Hot Rocks"

I would be grossly remiss in my duties if I didn't feature another jewelry post, due to the fact that jewelry is so near and dear to my heart. I literally get a chill when I see such stunning pieces! The first six were designed by Bijoux Heart (fast becoming another favorite!) and the last three by Dannijo.

"The Trench"

What sumptious luxury! This opulent leather trench from Burberry is without a doubt, one of the best "leather offerings" of the season. Might I add, that it has already sold out on Net-a-Porter. Is there any wonder why?

"Emerging Talent"

Alison Wood
Christopher Kon

Neiman Marcus is making "new strides" by adding new and emerging designer wares to their roster of design talent. Featured are two great looking bags from Alison Wood and Christopher Kon.

Flats Before Heels?

Anna Wintour says ballet flats topple high heels

According to New York’s Daily News, US Vogue's Anna Wintour has decreed that Bloch ballet flats are a must this season.
Is this the start of the high heel backlash? We know that when Vogue Australia editor-in-chief isn’t working a pair of Bally heels she treads our hallowed halls in stylish flats.
We also spotted warning signs at Easton Pearson’s show at the Mercedes-Benz Brisbane Fashion Festival, with models appearing in dance shoes roughly painted with black stripes.
It looks like it’s time for everyone to get en pointe.

"Funkin-it-up" with Sass and Bide

Featured are some great looks from Sass and Bide's Resort 2010 collection. I'm lovin the dress in picture two and the studded top in picture five........what a "dose of hot!"
