Tiz the season to be… PARTYING!

I know! I know! Its only mid-September and there’s a Xmas-sy theme on my subject line.  And pray tell do you know why this is so?

Well, in a matter of months, Xmas will be descending on us which means we have to get party dresses, shoes, jewellery, etc, etc, etc.  Today however, I’m on the subject of dresses.  Party dresses to be precise.

Here’s a look at dresses from some great online retailers from around the world.


Check out those sexy pins

Oh yes… I’m on a shoe rampage.  I love shoes, actually sandals and glittery slippers.  But a girl can always look, adore, admire and hope to have a walk in closet dedicated to shoes.  All kinds of shoes.  High heels, low heels, mid-rise boots, thigh high boots, wedges, espadrilles, Uggs, wellies, loafers, ballets, Havianas and more…

Yes.  Women love shoes.  Each pair of foot accessory highlights our mood of the day.  If it weren’t for shoes, men probably wouldn’t notice our legs.  And you know what, shoes make our legs look a mile high and oh-so-good!

Check out these deadly sexy shoes sure to make any man drool…

Welcome to the Jungle

Animal Print.  I never liked it.  Never liked it as a cushion cover or as a blouse or any article of clothing, really…. until… Angelina Jolie made it look hot.

This leggy and lithe brunette, ambassador of the under priviledged, is quite something.  She’s a style icon that many women have used to portray themselves.   Up until the middle of last year she was, and presumably, still is the face of St John.

But scrap all that.  The premiere of “Shark tales”, Mama Jolie walked out into an animal print jacket, backcombed hair and deadly eyes that could pierce many a man’s heart (oh! and women’s) but the point is, she made animal print look good.  No, not good, great and sexy!

Now let’s translate that into shoes.

Women love shoes.  Men, don’t even argue or question a woman about her shoes.  Its taboo.  A pair of shoes (sandals, loafers, pumps, boots, etc) adds the finishing touch to our mood of the day.  Unlike you men out there that have the standard types of shoes, we’ve got so much more to choose from.  Women’s fashion runs into the billions from cosmetics to the itty bitty black lacy thong, suits to dresses, bikinis to beach sandals.

Last night’s episode of “How to look good naked” with Gok Wan, the Gok-meister was transforming a  “once upon a time beauty queen” turned frumpy mummy into a yummy mummy and the icing on the cake, leopard print pumps.

This was my life altering distaste for animal print.  I really liked those shoes.  I wanted a pair.  So this morning, I went online to my favorite sites and this is what I found.
