Runway to Real Way – Gucci S/S 2011

by Erica on April 26, 2011

So I actually did get to go to the Gucci boutique in Atlanta and check out some of the beautiful dresses from the S/S 2011 collection in the flesh! Truly an amazing collection. I love the use of contrasting, bright colors as it definitely sets the tone on what your summer wardrobe should be… and what should your summer wardrobe be? Fun, of course! Lots of color and anything that takes the edge off from our brutal winter. Summer is going to be all about the pool & rooftop parties, well, let’s just say any outdoor party. So, in order to stay cool and reflect yourself from the sunrays, go for these bright numbers. Also, don’t fret! If you can’t afford the real deal or simply just don’t want to pay the designer prices, we think these Express dresses are just as stylish and cool for the summer! Don’t forget to top everything off with great accessories, too! I love this ASOS gold metallic belt, and it looks almost exactly like the Gucci belt that was featured on the runway! Don’t forget your strappy sandals, too! Topshop has you covered with these blue and pink metallic platforms! Enjoy!

Khloe Kardashian and her hubby recently attended the launch for their new fragrance “Unbreakable” and Khloe looked absolutely amazing in her black silk Gucci jumpsuit which she accessorized with a standout yellow Balenciaga clutch and beige/black Christian Louboutin Mago cap-toe pumps. I’m usually more interested in Kim K.’s style choices, but on this occasion Khloe outshone her sister with her neon yellow clutch. Love it!

Really, what is there to say about shoes like the Venus Front-Zip Platform Sandals by Gucci? Sex on a stiletto? A platform of perverse perfection? A picture—or a pair—is worth a thousand words…and a not far off a thousand bucks, either. They are exquisite. And expensive. Gah.

Chinese Laundry “Momento” Platform Sandals

If you, like me, regularly lust Gucci but lack the funds necessary to stockpile this iconic brand, at least you can look like a Gucci queen from the ankle down, thanks to Chinese Laundry. The “Momento” Platform Sandals are virtually the same as Gucci’s Venus — complete with a zipper up the front, but with plenty of bills left for your next acquisition. Available in black and cognac.

I confess: I. Love. Gucci. Especially the magnificent spring 2010 collection, with its ikat-meets-robot dresses and accessories. Who else could mix tribal, bondage, and mod—and do it so successfully? Apparently Heidi Klum is a fan as well. Let’s not all hate her cause she’s beautiful (even after popping out her own tribe of kids) and in Gucci, OK?
