Mr. West has done it again… Check out the shoe he’s designed along with Giuseppe Zanotti! The ivory beauts boast two straps, a reasonable heel, and leaves reminiscent of the Grecian art on the album cover.

I like the shoe and think its just as hot has Kanye West’s New CD along with his G.O.O.D family…  I wonder what the price tag will be on these…. if you remember before his other pair was around $5800!

Style Watch: Oxblood for Fall

trend-watch-fall-oxblood

Declaring oxblood as a fall trend might not seem groundbreaking or particularly new as it is more of a recurring, seasonal theme that comes back year after year just like leather, tweed, mustard and jewel tones. However, some classic fall trends seem to be favored more than others each year and for 2012 we place our bets on oxblood to be the most notable trend. Sure, “oxblood” might not sound quite as appealing as “bubblegum pink” for instance, but don’t let the name scare you off this rich dark berry hue that flatters every skin tone, is considered to have a rather mystic vibe yet is a classic and totally work-appropriate color. In order to spread the oxblood trend, we’ve compiled a list with a few of our favorite oxblood-colored items, fashion- and beauty-wise.

Go Shopping:

P.S.: While you’re at it, make sure to check out more fabulous yet affordable oxblood items at Topshopls and ASOSls.

Lately, I’ve challenged myself to be more daring in my wardrobe selection and one of my risks will be polka dot pants. The ladies picture above pull off the looks and I wants to as well. As soon as I try this look, I will be sure to share it with you. Are you looking to rock a pair of polka dot pant too? Here is a tips: Keep in mind, the more subtle the spots, the easier this look is to pull off. Think of polka dots as a cute way of breaking up a solid color; a pattern for the pattern-shy, if you will.

Whether in jean or trouser form, polka dot pants give off a dainty, feminine feel.  The good think about this trend is you can dial it up or down to fit your liking. .
