I’m an old school kind of gal. I love Frank Sinatra, Audrey Hepburn is one of my idols, I’m obsessed with pencil skirts and I’m dying for a pair of oxfords. I don’t really wear flats but if they made a pair of oxfords with some heel to them I’d buy them in a heartbeat! However, I do love looking at oxfords because I believe them to be highly stylish especially if you love old school fashion.
When I first spotted the Lanvin Crystal Eagle Applique Tee, I thought the bird on the front was a phoenix. The phoenix is a bird most commonly known for its appearance in Greek mythology. It is that beautiful bird that builds a nest and ignites itself into flames. From the ashes emerges a new phoenix, implying that this creature is immortal. Pretty cool! But sadly, the description for this top says that the bird is an eagle. And upon closer inspection, apparently it is an eagle wearing a crown. This isn’t the first Lanvin piece featuring an eagle motif though. I guess for some reason, this piece just looked a little different. Maybe it is the trailing tail feathers.
The holidays are a great time to explore all the sequin possibilities the fashion industry has to offer. Let’s face it, sequins are just so much fun! But what about sequins for day? Or (gasp) for seasons that don’t involve Christmas trees and a jolly old man with a sleigh full of toys? This may come as a surprise, but sequins are actually doable year-round. The trick is knowing how to do them right. That’s why I love the Maison Scotch Sequined Skirt!
Michael Antonio is one of my favorite shoe designers. Mostly because his shoes are stylish and affordable! I currently own two pairs of Michael Antonio heels and I love them to pieces. Also, let’s face it high heels aren’t always the most comfortable shoes after walking in them for awhile, but with my experience with Michael Antonio his shoes never hurt my feet! Now that’s a major plus!
I currently love the Michael Antonio “Arizona” Wedges. They might be a little flashy but they would look amazing with a stylish evening outfit. Obviously, they aren’t ideal for a dress or skirt but I could totally envision someone rocking these with a fierce pair of skinny jeans. The rhinestone and mirror details will really make these shoes sparkle at night. It’s always fun to add a little bling to our feet right? We dress up our bodies so why not our feet too?
These shoes are absolutely gorgeous and for the price you can’t go wrong! Sparkly and affordable, my kind of shoe! A+!
You can purchase the Michael Antonio “Arizona” Wedges at Zappos for $130.
Anything that is adorned with crystals maybe be on the expensive side, but boy do I love crystals. Crystals make everything more fun and prettier. I’ve never been one for jewelry, unless it’s really unique, but I’ve always loved crystals. Whether crystals are on clothes, accessories or shoes I love it all.
When I saw the Reem Acra Wide “Crystal” Headband/Belt I was instantly in love. It’s something I would buy in a heartbeat if it was a little more affordable. It’s so gorgeous and the fact that you can wear it as a headband or belt gives it more kudos.
You probably could even wear it as a choker if you really wanted to. No matter what way you choose to sport this fabulous piece, it will look beautiful! As a headband, in dark hair it would look stunning because it would pop and catch everyone’s eye! Heck it caught my eye within two seconds of seeing it on Shop Bop.
Great piece. Pricey but I won’t deny that it’s breathtaking.

It’s no secret that I love crystals, so of course when I saw the Giuseppe Zanotti “Suede” Ankle Strap Sandals my eyes lit up. Do I think they’re pretty? Yes. Do I think they need some improvements? Yes. I will admit it’s an overall gorgeous shoe though. I think any shoes that feature crystals on them then to catch your eye.
If these shoes came in black, I’d be all over them. I’m not sure if I would ever get use out of a pair of shoes that are on the pink side. I could totally see these type of shoes, being that one pair you need for that special outfit. They’re definitely the type of shoe you don’t wear on an everyday basis. I’d be afraid the crystals would fall out if I wore them non-stop.
Let’s not forget either, that these aren’t any ordinary crystals, these shoes are adorned in Swarovski crystals. I’d consider these shoes like treasure. Why wear them all the time when you have little valuable pieces that might fall out? Then again for the price they cost, I’d hope none of the crystals would ever fall over!
Overall, it’s a gorgeous shoe I wouldn’t mind having in my collection!

Has there ever been a pair of sandals that just call your name? That’s exactly how I feel when I first discovered Mystique’s gold with a hint of turquoise sandals! They are simply stunning!
The Mystique Jewel Flats are made of a gold leather, which has a crackled-effect to it. But without a doubt, the jewels are the main focal point – big bold crystals mixed with tear drop and bubble styled turquoise gems. For insta-glam-chic, match the look with a simple white dress and don’t forget your toes done in nude or some light color.
Right now find the Mystique Flats at $244 here at LuisaviaRoma
Although I’m a heel type of gal, I can’t deny a good looking pair of flats. I’ve been eyeing a nice stud encrusted set to pair up with my denims; today, I ran into the Sienna Cap Toe Flats by Joe’s Jeans. I’m a fan of Joe’s denim jeans; I’m just not familiar with their footwear. This pair features various smoke toned crystals and metal cone studs. I don’t doubt that this pair would look great with dark skinny denims, but I’m kind of ‘iffy’ on if the adornment cluster is really as fabulous as it’s intended to be. There is nothing unusual or risk taking about the all black leather piece, so you can bet that you would get your $140 worth, year round. Going back to the encrusted cap toe feature, it does add character to an all black pair of flats, and I would say that it sure does beat a steel-toed shoe.
