THE 2-INCH CRAZE

It took me some time to process and finally sit down and write this article but I am now ready to confess!
2-inch craze and I plead guilty - OBSESSED - well it’s kind of hard not to be with the pairs that are currently around.

Over the past few years I’ve kinda given up on heels for my everyday get-up and go. I used to trot the streets in my sky-high pumps on a 7am - 7am and I could not be defeated by anything; in fact I’d roll my eyes at women who changed from trainers into boring mid-heels in the cab or lift.

But things change darling! Over the years, I slowly found myself feeling turned off by them and flat-shoe options suddenly started to look amazingly appealing. Loafers, trainers, slippers et al, won my fashion heart (and wallet). And now I am all about the 2-inch do. Don't take me wrong, I am still sold on occasion by some fancy sky rockets and do rule them when appropriate but all I can say is that they definitely don't sit on my cupboard's front row.

 

Mid heels made their first appearance last S/S and they are still going strong. First, it was all about Chanel’s block heel slingback, which Karl revamped for the first time since Gabrielle’s era at the brand, then the Celine ballerina pump (aka glove shoe), Valentino’s Rockstuds, then the Mary Janes and now it is all about J'Adior!

You'll find me drooling over everything from GUCCI, Lallo and his shoes are from another planet and my latest brand crush - THE ATTICO.
Ah.. and I am all about the mule - 2 trends in one (more on that soon)!
Gimme Gimmeeeee!

TRENDING NOW: STATEMENT EARRINGS

 
 

Blame it on Phoebe, Alessandro and the rest of the gang for bringing the earlobe back to attention. Earring mash-ups and designers combining several styles in one look, the statement earring needs to sit front row in your wardrobe's myst-haves this season. Whether you are all about the minimal look or like the louder than loud, this pizza is big enough for everyone! You can elevate a mix & match do or have a helping hand for the 'I have nothing to wear' morning struggle. A pair of Levis, a tee and one of them 'chandeliers' and you are ready to go!

LET'S TALK ABOUT VELVET

Don't say I didn't warn you. Velvet obsession doesn't stop at the lux interiors of your grandma's 70's sofa. From Vetements, to Saint Laurent, Philip Lim and Valentino (and almost everybody really) velvet has us purring with satisfaction. Giddy up! Whether it is a matching suit, a dress, shoes or accessories, velvet rules the hood this season. At least in my book. And Vogue's. I think most of the street style gang agrees too. 
Ultra luxe par excellence pour moi, I am already thinking layering over layering and back to maximalism it is!

Girls, your call - either start roaming the stores or start digging in mummy's closet. Or granny's.. that's even better. I bet you will definitely find a piece to help you get on the right page.
