Confessions of a Shoe Addict: Valentino Bow Pumps

 Could a shoe ever be so pretty? I am seriously crushing over these adorable rose-pink patent leather bow pumps from Valentino!

The signature Valentino bow sits perfectly on the 4 inch stacked patent leather pump making these classy, chic and so ladylike. The concealed quarter-inch platform makes them super comfortable as well – perfect to wear from day to night.

Looking pretty in pink just became a whole lot sexier!

Available at Saks Fifth Avenue now!

Confessions of a Shoe Addict: Kirkwood Python Heels

How is a girl expected to save when there are shoes like these out there in the world? Nicholas Kirkwood’s metallic python platform pumps are a hybrid of serious pizzazz and wearable ornateness. Blended shades of teal, turquoise, and violet work together in perfect harmony. The outcome is serious shimmering opalescence.

These 5-inch beauties are compromised of skinny metallic leather straps, lustrous snakeskin and finished off with a secure slingback strap.

These aren’t just shoes – they are a piece of art! This is the kind of shoe that will have people eying you from the moment you put them on until you ruefully pull them off at the end of the night. Simply beautiful!

Available now at Saks for $1495.

Saks Fifth Avenue Dubai Spring/Summer Fashion Show

Held on March 9th under the iconic ‘Gate’ at Dubai’s DIFC, the Saks’ Fifth Avenue Spring/Summer 2011 Fashion show was the talk of the town. Unfortunately, I missed it due to an issue with my baggage at Dubai airport as I was flying in specially for the show, but I did manage to get this footage from Saks.

Featuring all the key trends for the season including my personal favourites, floral and nautical, Saks is one of my favourite places to shop and with these looks, you can sure see why!

Congratulations Saks – you did an amazing job!
