Out & About

For many years, I’ve been anti-flats, especially the closed ones. I can’t really recall why I disliked them so much, I guess they just never really spoke to me. However, now that I’ve been dipping my toes in the fashion world for a few years, I grew to like flats. As long as they look so cute like this one from Carven. Isn’t it adorable? I love the slingback bow, it’s such a cute detail. Would I spend $540 on a pair of cute flats though? Well, that’s a complete different story.

Now doesn’t this outfit of Blake’s which she wore back in May for a photoshoot totally scream 70s to you? And sexy, it also screams sexy, don’t you think? I mean, just look at these over-the-knee boots combined with these long legs, that blonde wild mane of and that voluptuous pout. We liked Blake Lively‘s retro-meets-sexy look a lot, so here’s our budget-friendly take on her all-black outfit. Did we nail it or not?

Chloé has created quite a few “It“-bags in the last 10 years, but it’s been rather quiet on their bag front lately. Well, that’s not entirely sure because there’s one bag that is currently making the rounds and getting a lot of hype and exposure – the “Alice” tote, a large two-tone bag that has the shape of a classic doctor’s bag. I’m usually not a big fan of colorblocking on bags, but this one I find very pretty. I really like its classic elegance and clean lines and the gold hardware gives this bag that extra oomph. But this beauty comes at a price. At $2.195, to be exact.

So how great was your summer yet? Very, I hope. As for Selena Gomez, well, it seems like she’s having the time of her life right now travelling around Europe, splashing in the water with friends; all that while wearing the nicest of clothes. This outfit she donned a few days ago in Italy was my absolute favorite Selena lately. The young actress wore a gorgeous white lace romper from Zimmermann, paired it with Ray-Ban aviator sunglasses and finished off her ensemble with Brian Atwood‘s super hot “Abell” studded heels. I loved Selena’s sexy and stylish look so much that I tried to recreate it for you on a more accessible level. You like?

I’m still not cool with “Yves” being stripped from Saint Laurent, but I am definitely cool with the creative direction Hedi Slimane is taking the French fashion house. The shoes are especially fabulous. I really like the angular design of these black ankle boots. So chic! And expensive. Le sigh!

Steve Madden “DEVIL” High Heel Ankle Boots

Oh, Steve Madden – you are a “DEVIL” indeed! The description of these pointed-toe booties says “So sexy it’s just plain evil!” – well, I say “So close to the original, it’s just plain copying!“. Not that I mind too much though since the price tag of these $129.95 black booties is much easier to handle than the $950 one of the original Saint Laurent heels. Pre-order these beauties now if you want your Saint Laurent fix for less and have them ready when Fall comes around the corner!
