If Art and Fashion had a baby…

A while ago I did a photo shoot for a collaboration between Jimmy Choo and artist Rob Pruitt. That would be me with my ass hanging out of the pile of tires. I live the glamorous life, clearly… Just being in Rob Pruitt’s studio and seeing painting in progress was amazing coupled with Jimmy Choo’s, what could be better??!! If you don’t know Rob Pruitt’s art it has a pop culture feel and the man’s got a thing for pandas. I get it. They’re cute and seemingly cuddly. How can you not like pandas? So put that together with some great heels and you’ve got a winning combination. I got to play in these ones at the shoot…

I love the playful design and mix of patterns and colors. There is still the hint of sophistication and class as well. And let’s not forget to mention the adorable panda inner lining! He also did a line of handbags and clutches to match.

I love that I live in a city that is one of the biggest fashion capitals and anything goes when it comes to fashion. I try to play with patterns and color in my everyday wardrobe and these would give any outfit that little extra umph. I think these would be great for a girl’s night out in the city. Here’s how I see these:

Candy Coated Dreams

For all of you that don’t know me I have a HUGE candy addiction. I swear there is a fat kid living inside me and nothing makes me happier than a 5lb bag of gummy bears or a trip to Dylan’s Candy Store for some bulk candy! So you can imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon Charlotte Olympia’s Cruise 2014 collection dedicated to all things sweet! The Sweet Dolly pump is absolutely adorable with the candy necklace ankle strap. This is one shoe I can never own seeing that I would constantly be trying to gnaw at  the candy necklace!

I love the idea of having fun with fashion and this shoe is a great example. Such an amazing vibrant color of suede contrasts the gold platform so well. I’ve never really been a huge fan of big platforms, mainly because I live in a city where we walk around all time and to take a tumble in this type of  shoe would leave you with a broken ankle! I would however totally rock this tho to an event or dinner especially since they have a rubberized sole which would squish my fear of falling in these.

 

What better to go with this adorable shoe than Charlotte Olympia’s Gummi Bear Clutch?!  I. MUST. OWN. THIS…

I mean, come on… this bag just screams my name! How cute is this??!! I’ve never been so excited about a clutch before. I can’t even handle the cuteness here. Made of an acrylic glass with a magnetic clasp. It’s 7 1/2 inches of pure sweetness! How would I rock this look? I envision something like this…

Rock and Roll!

I knew the second I put my toes in the Abell by Brian Atwood I knew they would be a hit! Up close the detail is amazing! Each stud is surrounded by a tiny gold chain all done by hand! It’s only being offered on a 120mm heel which if you don’t know is almost a 5 inch heel and anyone who’s walked in one knows you’re not going anywhere fast or far in that kind of height. But the higher heel height is soo much sexier and this shoe just oozes sexiness. So far I’ve seen this shoe on JLo, Lea Michelle and Kat Graham and it looks gorgeous on all of them. And the best part is they dropped the price so it’s actually quasi affordable now. When Brian Atwood first started showing this beauty it was $2500 it can be yours for the low low price of $1500!!! I’ll take two!

As I was strolling thru Bloomingdale’s I was literally stopped in my tracks by this clutch. Burberry’s Prorsum black and white striped clutch is beyond adorable. Just the right size and a squishy combo of leather and canvas. I just can’t get enough. They also have a version in large polka dots that I love just as much!

This bag and shoes together are just the right mix of Rock-n-roll and sweetness. Burberry threw in a nice long strap so this clutch can also be worn as a cross body bag. BONUS!!! I love the top zip. You can fill this puppy up with all your lady stuff or just throw in the essentials for a night out on the town. These shoes and clutch paired with a bold colored dress would be ultimate evening ensemble!
