Louboutin Appearance in Miami

1 Comments

Mr Christian Louboutin himself had quite the soiree last night at the Saks Fifth Avenue in Miami’s Bal Harbour Shops. The event was a celebration and shoe signing of his new “Capsule Collection” made especially for his 20 year anniversary in the biz. I loved how they incorporated a Miami touch to the event with complimentary Mojitos, Cuban sandwiches, Ceviche bites and live Latin music.  We got a sneak peek at the ‘Capsule Collection’ (available to all in March) which included signature shoes as well as handbags – in the shape of an actual capsule. It goes without saying that they were all stunning. My favorite shoes were the ones pictures below with the invisible straps and little dainty bows. It is his ingenuity that makes this man a fashion genius!

H&M’s 2012 Summer Lookbook

0 Comments

The new H&M 2012 Summer Lookbook is out! Lookbooks are a great references for upcoming trends and styling ideas; and who doesn’t love H&M? It looks like this Summer Collection is very vintage inspired (looove that) and I’m really into the deep purple with soft pink color combo they’re featuring in a few looks.

To my fellow Miami residents: Our very own H&M is coming soon and set to open in the Fall of 2012! The store will be located on Lincoln Rd. where the New Wold Symphony used to be housed, and will feature 22,000 sq feet and 2 floors full of H&M goodness. Could be dangerous.
