Christian Louboutin shoes = Stunning + Amazing + Glamourous!

I currently adore the stunning collection of shoes by Christian Louboutin. The classic signature touch of the red colour block underneath the shoes is both stylish and elegant and makes you feel gorgeous knowing that you're walking around in these shoes. 

What I love most about the collection is that every pair of shoes is completely different in its own way, whilst still adhering to the classic and timeless feel of the French designer's brand. It's also great that no pair of shoes is too daring to be on sale. I personally love the classic black and red high heeled shoes as pictured above because they can be worn in the day or at night and they go with absolutely everything, from a smart suit for work to an evening dress. They are also extremely comfortable as there's a hidden platform in a lot of the styles of shoes, so you don't feel as if you're walking in shoes that are too high for you.

Apart from the classic and timeless shoes, I also love the more daring designs, which are almost artistic in the way they're presented. But whatever your style is, there's something to suit everyone's taste with Christian Louboutin shoes.

The wonders of Indian jewellery

Indian jewellery is my favourite style to wear, both in the day, at night and for special occasions. The great thing about it is that you can mix and match different pieces of jewellery with a range of outfits. For example this necklace pictured above by Amrita Singh is absolutely stunning and would go well with a black evening dress, as well as a more casual summer dress. I really think it's all about how you wear the jewellery and a stylish necklace or bracelet can go well with almost any outfit.

My friends say that I really like my "bling" and to be honest, it is true! Without going over the top with flashy jewellery, I like pieces that stand out but are classy and elegant. Although all of these necklaces would look amazing if paired with matching earrings, especially for occasions such as weddings, sometimes it is really nice to wear just the necklace alone because it would stand out enough. Either way jewellery does wonders for your outfit.

The Fashion of New York City

I just got back from an amazing week in New York last month! I went there at the beginning of September for a whole week and absolutely loved it! As well as all the sight-seeing I managed to get a couple of days to go shopping in the famous areas of the city, including the fabulous Fifth Avenue, Madison Avenue and Soho. I loved all the different types of shops from Bergdorf Goodman to Saks and Tiffany's and found myself taking hours in each store!

Tiffany's was amazing and I didn't realise they had so many floors until I went inside! I bought a lovely silver necklace from Tiffany's, which is both classic and timeless and can be worn in the day as well as on nights out. Other stores that really caught my eye include Guess by Marciano in Soho. I loved this shop and received excellent customer service as soon as I walked in. Guess by Marciano has a very contemporary feel and appeals to young women because it's almost a mixture of high end designer fashion with high street fashion. The dresses were most impressive to me.

The shoes in Bloomingdales were also amazing, with so many to choose from! I personally loved their evening shoes including this pair by Ivanka Trump.

I could talk forever about the different styles and endless boutiques in New York, and there was still so much more that I didn't get to see. I'm definitely planning another trip to the big Apple soon as there's much more New York City shopping to be done! But for now I thought I would share with you some of my favourite designers and stores in the big city.

DVF autumn 2011 fashion

The Diane von Furstenberg autumn 2011 collection looks amazing with a range of colours and designs to keep you looking and feeling great as we get into the cold winter. Designs such as printed dresses matched with boots and a hat really complement each other well.

The beige and light brown coloured designs also go really well with the autumn look, and paired with some statement sunglasses for those sunny but chilly days, you really can't go wrong with this classic and chic look.

I'm a big fan of accessories as they really help to make your outfit, and they help each outfit look different. For example a simple scarf can transform an outfit and give you a splash of colour when wearing dark colours.

Handbags are definitely a favourite for all fashionistas out there! I absolutely love clutch bags that can be taken out in the evening, as well as formal occasions in the day. This metallic clutch bag by DVF is great because it's so versatile and goes with just about any outfit!

Overall the DVF autumn 2011 runway looks are amazing and there's plenty of variety in there to keep you looking stylish all through the winter!
