I am infatuated. With my eBayed Givenchy shoes. Bought on a whim at a major discount. Mind you, a rich bitch I am not. Case in point: I pulled a Carrie Bradshaw and bought some £6 Primark trainers to go with my Givenchy shoes. I figured it would be a good investment. Cough cough. Mom, please don't kill me when you read this.

Note to self: Pedicures. Do them more often.

Even though I have little brown and beige in my wardrobe, I feel like these babies will go with just about anything. Plus they fit like a glove and are surprisingly comfy, although I have yet to really break them in, but judging the buttery soft leather, that won't be too hard.
A big fan of anything harnessed, be it chains or leather (to which collection I have added my first piece to, but more on that later), my heart fluttered a bit when seeing this beautiful chain bolero on The Zoe Report. Yes, I am a sucker for Rachel Zoe. Guess that throws my alternative fashion credit out the window, but how can you not love a woman who says "bananas" and "literally" five thousand times a day?
Anyway, here's the bolero beauty.
So if you've got an extra 1350 bucks to spare, Cornelia Webb can give you wings.
Haider Ackermann won me over with his long silky maxi skirts and laser like cut leather jackets, so it's no surprise this collection drew my attention in as well. Yes those are some very exposing cutouts and those half dress trains aren't exactly suitable for your morning Tube ride, but blame it on the Paris. Fashion there is almost never about practicality but the va va voom.
Slowly but surely coming to fulfill the "salve-ishly follow all Fashion Weeks" tip in my course handbook (except that I am a few weeks late in doing so), I present to you Lanvin, the essential show to cover in my Runway Raves section.
Yes there was less glamour and embellishments then in the A/W collection, one of the main reasons why I am secretly on that season's side, but the lavish materials and cuts made up for all of that.
