Sneakers never seem to go out of style do they? That’s a good thing because a great pair can last you ages as well as keep you comfortable and stylish (that’s if you choose wisely).

One Star Vintage Suede Low Top Vintage (Khaki) $130

If I have to choose between heels and sneakers, I’ll go for the latter. I’m not one to put my feet through a hard time just to look presentable. Now that dress codes are less rigid, experiment by pairing your sneakers with outfits for all occasions. You’d be surprised by how well it works with a formal attire.

Celine FW 2017/18

Although most would consider metallics a trend, it doesn’t have to be. Use fashion to represent your personal style and wear metallics whenever you feel like it and however you want it. Don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise.

Solo Kitten Heels $60

[Vaux Shop]

Vintage 70s White Patent Pointed Kitten Heels $68 (USD)

For me, the right dose of metallics can give an edge to a simple ensemble and if you want to try the futuristic look, these shiny things could do no wrong.

Besides sneakers, flats are also my favorite type of shoes. Some brands make incredibly comfortable ones and they can be dressed up or down depending on the design of the flats. The following suggestions are great for casual outings, weddings, corporate wear, just to name a few.

Red Flats Ankle Strap Pointed Toe Slingback Shoes $59.99

[SAKS FIFTH AVENUE]

Sienna Grommeted Suede Ankle-Strap Flats $103.20

[BILLINI]

Shilo Blush Microsuede $52.47

Pointed toe shoes are great for those who want to elongate their legs. And if you’re short, try pairing the color of your pants and shoes to create the illusion that you have long legs.

My Top Picks From Paris Haute Couture 2017 // Day 2

Metallics, jeweled embellishments and futuristic designs were a highlight on the second day of Paris Haute Couture week.

What. A. Day.

Work was challenging today and it has left me feeling drained. Despite that and running on an (almost) empty tank, I decided to stop by Topshop before I run my errands. Since Topshop is closing down soon, most things are 50 – 70% off. If you don’t earn much, you want to take advantage of sales like this!

I tried on a pair of culottes (It looks alright on me but I don’t love it), a white silk dress (The inner lining and the slit are ridiculously short), a red button up skirt (Too puffy on the hips. Since I have big hips, it’s not the right cut for me) and an IVY PARK workout pants (It’s see through) but nothing fits me. I did, however, get myself a wood ring from their Freedom range. This particularly piece was originally priced at $18 but I paid $2 for it. Score!

If you haven’t seen my favorite designs from Day 1, check it out here. Though you may notice some recurring trends on Day 2 (i.e. ruffles, sheer, pops of red, the monochrome palette etc.), there was noticeably more sparkle, intricate embellishments as well as innovative material use.

Key trends from Giambattista Valli: romantics, bell sleeves, florals, sheer and empire neckline.

Since most of these pieces are wearable in real-life, which ones would you choose? As for me, I’d rock Christian Dior’s first look during the day and save Georges Hobeika’s gorgeous blue number (the last look) for a fancy event. But let’s be honest, don’t we want to wear them all?

The Other

A disruption in a world of replication and the norm, Jenny Mustard stands out by listening to her other being.

She used to be a drifter. She wrote her own vegan cook book and created her own clothing line – MIND THE MUSTARD – so that she could express her unusual taste in fashion. Although MIND THE MUSTARD has been discontinued, her style never ceases to impress those who long for something out of this world.

Here are my 7 favorite looks by Jenny Mustard. I hope you like them as much as I do!
