Seeing Double : Dior Anniversary Python Vs. L.A.M.B. "Georgina" Vs. Guess "Karavi" Slingback

Dior Anniversary Python

Really adores Dior Anniversary Python? Well if you want to waste $834 for that, then that’s fine.

But for you, Tight-Budget-Soccer-Mommies, there’s L.A.M.B. “Georgina” that cost around $400.

L.A.M.B. "Georgina"

Actually, i do find the Georgina Version is better than the Dior Version.

But don’t worry. There’s another option for Tighter-Budget-New-Mommies-Who-Still-Saving-For-Their-Kids-Tuition-Fee. Guess “Karavi” Slingback cost only $114.

Guess "Karavi" Slingback

Aaaah.. Don’t we just love bargaining?

You know fashion doesn’t cost as much as you predict..

Fashion Tips : Comfortable High Heels

Love the heels but can’t bear the pain? In the latest issue of Marie Claire, Sergio Rossi’s creative director Edmundo Castillo offers shoe advice for walking comfortably in high heels.

1. Change heel heights several times a day. Feet and legs shouldn’t be allowed to mold themselves to any one shoe shape.
2. Shoes are an emotional accessory; hurt your feet, hurt your feelings.
3. Befriend a salesperson who will tell you if a shoe will actually feel as good as it looks.
4. If you feel all the weight in the front of your foot, this heel’s your arch enemy — literally.
5. Your foot needs to sit in a shoe. If you can wedge two fingers between your sole and the shoe — bye-bye!
6. Platforms should be no more than one-and-a-half inches high — or you’re dangling off a cliff.
7. Think Cinderella: A heeled shoe must fit perfectly. Faking it with the wrong size will get ugly. (Hmm, I think Victoria ‘Posh’ Beckham didn’t get this memo. Didn’t she once say If they don’t have my size I just stick toilet paper in…If that’s what it takes to get a nice shoe.’)
8. Don’t shoe shop with swollen feet — e.g., when it’s hot or right after exercise
9. To elongate your legs, ankle straps should sit above the ankle bone.
10. Still wobbling when you walk in your heels? Practice!

You know these tips are pretty useful..

Sneak Peek : McQueen's Spring/Summer 2010 Paris

The show to create the most buzz from Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2010 over the past 24 hours came from Alexander McQueen. The British design legend once again brought out the big guns to present the most whimsical and outrageous collection of the week.

Collaborating with Lady Gaga (naturally, I mean look at those shoes), McQueen’s live stream of his show was brought to a sudden end after Gaga fans logged onto to hear the world premiere of her latest single which was played on the catwalk. Note to Gaga: it probably wasn’t wise to Tweet that you were debuting your hot new track just 30 mins prior to show time. Oops!

But back to those incredible shoes…

Models morphed into reptiles and robots wearing intricate digital prints, and stomped down the runway in heavily rounded fetish-style platforms. Adorned with everything from snakeskin to chunks of coloured crystal, they had fashion followers in a Twitter frenzy.

Works of art they might be. But would you wear them?

You know that these shoes are legendary..

*Not long after this collection, McQueen commited suicide. Tragic loss to the fashion community.

Is how we describe our uncertain feelings towards other people.

Is how we describe our obsession to Fashion.

Is how we describe Christian Louboutin’s LOVE Suede Pumps. Inspired by Princess Diana, Louboutin says “I wanted her to always have love at her feet.”

Pair with simple tailoring to let your "Love" shine, this 4 Inch heeled Pump cost around $539.13. Who says, “Love don’t cost a thing” ?

You know that Love DO exist, in a slightly expensivo way, that is..
