April 2015 Issue

Isabel Marant has always been a great choice for girls that is laid-back, chic, effortlessly fashionable and carefree. However, one of their footwear piece managed to turn the word "carefree" into "careless" or the word "laid-back" into "laid-off". Isabel Marant's Jadyn Leather Sandal is the footwear piece I was talking about.

There are three major problem that I found about this sandal :

1. I've never been a fan of an open toe footwear. Peeptoe is still okay but blatanly exposing all of your toes is a different thing.
2. What kind of a person would want to look like they have a hairy ankle. Some people even tried to shave it off if they're suffering from the condition. Ain't nobody wanna look like a hobbit.
3. This thing cost €620. Nuff said.

I don't think it's necessary to explain more about how and why I chose this footwear to be in this April 2015 Issue. It's pretty much self-explanatory.

You know you won't spend €620 just to look like a hobbit..

Must Have Item : Gianvitto Rossi Gitana High Sandal

Gianvitto Rossi has a really nice shoe collection. But I've never been blown away by any of his pieces until now. Gitana High Sandal successfully took my breath away.

It has a oriental bohemian, kind of a gypsy feel to it, which is confirmed by the officials from Gianvitto Rossi, saying that Gitana High Sandal is a Gypsy Queen.


Gitana High Sandal by Gianvitto Rossi was first introduced to me by a blog post made by the lovely Life's A Shoe, so please check her out because now we know that she has an exquisite taste for foot candies.

I am especially mesmerized by the metal accents, which by the way is made out of silver. That explains a lot why this high sandal has a price tag over a thousand euro, 1.150€ to be exact.

If you're looking for something classy yet sexy with a slight edge to it, I would totally recommend this Gitana High Sandal by Gianvitto Rossi.

You know you wanna be a gypsy queen once in a while..

Kisses,

Ugly Shoe of The Month : Givenchy Shark Lock Ankle Boots

March 2015 Issue

To be honest, I've never been a big fan of Givenchy. Not because they're ugly or anything, but more because it's not on my taste range. Deep down I know some of their pieces would look good on someone else, it's just not me.

However, this time Givenchy managed to create something so ghastly that I couldn't believe anymore that it'll look good on someone else.

This shark lock accent on the side could be cute if it's not combine with the bell bottom jeans look of the leather cover. This leather thingy makes it somehow look like a piece of shoe that cult members would wear to their rituals.

This ankle boots is so ugly, even the skinny, attractive model that wore it looked like either a thirteen year old geeky girl that experiments on a rocker biker chick look.

To add more insults to the injury, the ankle boots cost almost a thousand euro a pair. Yikes!

You know this shark lock ankle boots looks more like a shark attack..

Iris van Herpen is a dutch designer that designed some crazy cool pieces, as you can see above. Aren't they all very breathtaking? She studied Fashion Design at Artez Institute of the Arts Arnhem and interned at Alexander McQueen in London.

Why is it not a shock anymore for me. Of course, all the cool designers that I love interned at McQueen. From Nicholas Kirkwood to Anastasia Radevich. Artez Institute also has an outstanding reputation, e.g. Viktor & Rolf and Lucas Ossendrijver from Lanvin Homme.

One year after graduating from Artez Institute, Van Herpen launched her own fashion label in 2007. It means that the label is in the business for less than 10 years and she's already this big, that's magnificent. But with that much talent, she doesn't have to worry about making it big in the fashion industry.

Feel free to check her collections online. It's literally everywhere. Be prepared to be blown away and I promise you, your jaw will drop so low, it won't come back up.

You know now how talented Iris is..

Kisses,
