White Shoes

White shoes are showing up everywhere these days - ladies on the red carpets and fashionistas in the blogosphere have been photographed wearing them. Personally, I love white footwear. These shoes are perfect for summer and great in winter too. I've thrown the fashion rules regarding white shoes out the window,

I don't have time for these rules when there are so many pairs of amazing white shoes waiting to be worn.

Once upon a time, white heels were associated with Smurfette, but now wearing white pumps with a little white dress is actually fashion-forward and looks amazing too!

White shoes are so versatile they can be worn with anything, and there are so many different designs that you're sure to find the perfect pair to suit your style. I wear mine with shorts, dresses, pants and jeans. What do you wear yours with?

Game of Thrones Fashion Inspiration

Game of Thrones has become my TV obsession. I don't get much time to watch TV, so any show that I make time for has to be pretty amazing. I'm riveted by the storyline, I'm intrigued by the characters, and I'm captivated by the costumes.

Ever since I was a little girl, I've held a special place for garments and accessories with medieval, renaissance and baroque splendour. The detail and extravagance in the wardrobes of the lucky ladies of these times was breathtaking.

So once a week, while watching Games of Thrones with my glass of wine, I find myself thinking about how I could style a modern outfit with the essence of these fashion eras gone by. Or perhaps I could find someone who'll make a gorgeous Daenerys Targaryen inspired creation for me. Hmmm... decisions, decisions.

Style It Simple

I usually love to accessorise with shiny baubles and pretty things, but today I changed my mind. The iconic Coco Chanel once said, "Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove one accessory." Well, today I looked in the mirror and removed a few accessories.
With this dress I would wear a statement necklace, maybe add a belt, maybe statement earrings and a stack of bracelets with some rings.
But today I styled it simple. Every now and then it's nice to go back to basics. So that's why I styled this classic black dress with dark sunnies, black shoes and a few jewels.
