Kirkwood continues to delight with his footwear. This booties are one part Victorian (the lace and buttoned ankle cuff) and one part architectural futurism (heel and incline).
2. Votivo For VOGUE Candle | £35

3. Vivienne Westwood Yellow Tartan Diary | £35
Westwood has launched a collection of stationary that includes A4 sized silk and print covered notebooks and an A5 2011 diary. The notebooks are £25 and come in either a the iconic Squiggle (in red and grey colours) or the vintage Anglomania Union Jack flag. Here is to hoping I find the tartan 2011 diary in my stocking.
4. Husam El Odeh For Acne Spring Summer 2010 |
One of my favourite jewellery designers is Husam El Odeh. He is genius in his ability to reinterpret seemingly mundane and simple materials into thought provoking jewellery. I am obsessed with his spring summer 2011 jewellery collaboration with Acne. The above ear piece has got to be the most memorable piece of jewellery I have seen in lately. How incredible that the ear piece is worn hanging over the ear via the narrow metal part of the cuff?
5. Yves Saint Laurent Burgundy Cape | £2,555
This cape would make for an impeccable cover up from the cold. The military style of the shoulder epaulettes, gold buttons and flap patch pockets makes it timeless. The tailoring is flawless.
6. Dashing Diva (Design Nails on the Go) Metallic Nails: Gold Digger | $8
Metallic foil nails by Minx have been all the rage made even popular by celebrities like Rihanna, Beyonce, Katy Perry etc. It is music to my ears that you can get the look with these press and go nails by Dashing Diva. I wish they were sold over here in the UK. Great for giving nails that molten gold makeover.
