The "It" List - ASOS Rhinestone Ear Cuff with Swarovski Stones

Monday, June 18, 2012

I love to wear jewelry, but I wear a minimal amount, because I don't like my accessories to overpower my outfit. However, I do adore anything unusual or quirky, such as the ASOS Rhinestone Ear Cuff with Swarovski Stones ($58 at ASOS). These ear cuffs feature a layered rhinestone design with faceted Swarovski gem stones and twin clip fastenings to the reverse.

"High Demand" Shoes at Demand Shoes

Sunday, June 10, 2012

Offering the most covet-worthy shoes from "high demand" designers, such as Luichiny, Bronx, and Diba; you can easily put your best foot forward with Demand Shoes. They have an extensive collection of sandals, booties, and heels that is enough to make any shoe aficionado or occasional shoe lover weak in the knees!

Demand Shoes sent me a pair of skyscraper heels from the Luichiny shoe collection. "The More Of It" ($89.95; also available in Red, Black, Orange, Yellow, Blue, Fuchsia, and Cobalt Blue) features an imi-suede upper with an adjustable ankle strap and a 2 inch platform. The chunky heel shockingly stands tall at 6 inches.

I'd be blatantly lying if I said that I didn't receive compliments after compliments on these shoes. Every time I don these, anywhere I go, someone stops me to ask me where did I get my shoes or to comment on how beautiful these shoes are, adding that they couldn't see how I am able to wear these shoes. I'll admit that these shoes are not for everyone. If you're not used to wearing high heels (these shoes especially), you might want to reconsider since they can take a bit of getting used to walking in higher heels. I love them, though. I find them to be comfortable ... for me, at least! I like that I can wear them with my favorite pair of skinnies or easily contrast them with other brights. I received the pair in a beautiful shade of Aqua, but I'm heavily considering on purchasing other colors in the same style, such as the Cobalt Blue, Orange, and Fuchsia.

Miu Miu Grey Cotton Poplin Mini Dress in Grey/Burgundy from Net-a-Porter

I can't help but love the Miu Miu Western Chic Dress at Net-a-Porter. One can see why that it stole the spotlight at Miu Miu's SS12 Fashion Show. It is beautifully crafted with a peek-a-boo burgundy bodice, stitched ruching, subtly structured silhouette, and flared skirt. I can easily picture myself donning this dress with bare legs.....and cowgirl boots!
