Very Lovely Soles for Everyone. #TresChic #HappyFeet

High fashion has my heart and shoe’s, my encompassing, undying love. As much I may love wearing high fashion shoes that scream couture, the reality is I walk. A lot. And have business meetings. And more business meetings. Followed by a red carpet event.

So…what’s a high fashion girl to do when she needs to combine functional with fabulous all in one day?

Get some Very Lovely Soles.

Coral Shoe Best Seller

Thankfully someone heard my plight.

Crocs be damned, and flip-flops shelved. Very Lovely Soles have come to my rescue with cute, chic flat’s that can cross over from me walking 3 miles to a business meeting.

The brainchild of designers Vanessa Seide and Rachel Traylor, Very Lovely Soles are gorgeous, simple, clean in design and most importantly, COMFORTABLE. With a combined 30+ years in the footwear industry these ladies combined their talents and created a winner in the land of footwear.

I love these embellished flat’s in slate. They have just the right amount of class.  I can mix them with my insane sense of style.

(Added bonus: If I am wearing this towards the end of fashion week I won’t get nasty stares from my designer friends. Yes they are that awesome.)

I’m sold!

Which one’s are your favorites?

How to know you have the right flats? They come with a tiny hummingbird logo to remind you how sweet they really are. Too cute. My Japanese friends would label these super ‘Kawaii’ aka too cute for words.

Now for the sad news….

They are only available in Larchmont, New York and selected boutiques, OR…..ONLINE. Hooray for online. We love web shopping. So stop crying and get out your credit card ladies it’s time to go online shoe shopping (again…hooray).

Happy Monday – David Guetta Play Hard (feat. Ne-Yo & Akon) #MusicMonday #WorkItOut

david-guetta-play-hard
I don’t think there is a single song I have ever disliked by David Guetta. He has been the mix master to my soul since around 2000 something and he has ‘it’ factor up the yin yang.

To get you inspired and get your Monday freak on I thought I would share a gem. It’s ‘Play Hard ‘featuring Ne-Yo and Akon. Even if the song ate it the video is worth watching.

Ne-Yo-Akon-David-Guetta-Play-Hard-Video-Still

No damn worries. The song is magic and the video ought to get you started the right-wrong way this morning.

Slam your coffee and put on your headphones because we’re about to bust it ought Guetta style. Video is SFW, BUT has twerking w a side of crunk. Beware the evil boss who doesn’t like booty shakin’ and sick dancers.

Buckle up….

Play Hard (feat. Ne-Yo & Akon)

Time to shop for Spring/Summer 2013, @MonikaChiang Style #Accessories #Shoes #Want #BlackisBack

030813_MonikasPicks_Sping

If you haven’t acquainted yourself with up and coming designer Monika Chiang, now is the perfect time to. Having just received an email about her fabulous shoes I thought I ought to give her website a quick spin. Always, a great idea for a new Spring/Summer wardrobe, and bad idea for my bank account. Because….I want everything! But instead I’ll share a few key pieces I love.

The “LAVA SWAROVSKI STONE NECKLACE, BLACK”

Lava rock and swarovski necklace

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This necklace oozes charm, style and a classic chic with a twist. The black lava chain gives it an industrial feel while the Swarovski classes it up enough to wear to a nice function. Absolutely a statement piece his screams little black dress and should be paired with something as fabulous as…..

Imena lace-up sandal

These shoes. These shoes that I am DYING for.

Lace-up sexy with a high heel to keep you above the rest the “IMENA LACE UP SANDAL, BLACK” screams La Femme Nikita. If James Bond ever turned int a woman she would bust these out. Seductress? Stiletto Sexy? Head turner? All of the above. I adore shoes so of course these are a must have on my list.

However, I am a woman on the go. I need to look smashing while being a little functional. Nothing says business like a black leather brief a la bag. I need a purse that screams business bitch, yet charms the man I am with.

Thankfully my search is over with the ever charming, “GABON LEATHER MESSENGER BAG”.

Baronleather messenger

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is functional, classy and is wearable for casual dates with jeans and those^ heels (Imena has my heart). The Gabon has extra zippers for an ‘edge’ and is easily carried or worn cross shoulder if you have to hit the subway.I love the look leather gets after elongated wear. Leather is forever and can last through numerous business meetings, airline flights and keep me looking classy.

Have I piqued your interest my fashionista’s? Good. Go shop the Monika Chiang collection here:

Things to Watch: L.A. Frock Stars on The Smithsonian Channel #Brash #Sass #Fashion #Celebs

I admit that most vices in life I have given up. However there are two things I will never let go of. Chocolate and television. And wine. And….oh blast let’s get back to television.

If you are like me you are addicted to every fashionably interesting show out there. I am still fuming there isn’t more ‘It’s a Brad, Brad, Brad World’ and am addicted to the new show The Face. I’m rooting for Coco seeing as she is sassy and quirky. Well Gods be praised a new show has popped up and it looks fabulous. And it’s set in L.A. which makes me an even bigger fan.

Enter Frock Stars L.A. with the ever wicked and cool owner Doris Raymond, owner of The Way We Wore. One of the hottest vintage shops in L.A. County which dresses some of the hottest celebrities (Adele, Dita Von Tease).

the-way-we-wore-1

How can I describe the owner? She’s fashionable, savvy and a vintage GODDESS. She knows whats up and down and she should be interesting to watch.

FrockStars

Add a fab staff of vintage divas in the know. Styles and designers they carry and hope to find range from the 1920’s to the 1980’s. And with a constant search for ‘the holy grail’ of vintage, it’s a super win.

Check out the teaser for the show here.

L.A. Frock Stars: Sneak Peek

Premieres  March 7 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Are you watching? I will be.

Temperley Goes Art Deco for London Fashion Week #Retro #Modern #LFW #FW2013

Starting out London Fashion Week full force, Alice Temperley took a classic 40’s inspired look adding dashes of golds and blue to accentuate the long linear figures. Drawing heavily on Art Deco and early sixties chic, Temperley still managed to present a very modern look including the ever trendy over sized jackets, boatneck and high collars we have seen all over runways this year.

Her full length gowns wrecked the runway this year with elongated silhouettes. I can see Cate Blanchett, Tilda Swinton or some other ethereal goddess wearing these to award season. They are chic in design, geometric shaping and linear quality making any woman look tall and lean.

Bravo Miss Temperley.

Anne Hathaway Flashes Her Carpet at ‘Les Mis’ Premiere #Derp #Commando

I’d like to thank Anne Hathaway for ending my slow news week.

Last night at the premiere of ‘Les Miserables” in New York, Anne wore a gorgeous Tom Ford dress and sexy boots I MUST have. Unfortunately our diva of the night forgot underwear and went commando. Not that I can blame Anne. Who wants VPL (visible panty line) when you are wearing a dress like that?  Me thinks Anne needs to learn that what a G-string is for. *shakes head*

Still, the dress was stunning and her bootie/boots are making me die with envy. I suppose this is also why stars are popular. I mean where would bloggers be without a red carpet coochie flash occasionally. Unfortunately now we know how Anne wears her carpet as well.

Next time I bet Annie will don a pantie.

McQueen SS 2013 to Start Your Afternoon

Living or dead  I will always support the house of McQueen. Before Alexander McQueen committed suicide his work was unparalleled in a world of unique, strange and beautiful designs. Now Sarah Burton has not only kept the world of McQueen alive but has offered a fresh take that fits McQueen’s world like a glove.

This year an elaborate bee themed collection hit the Paris runway with geometric shapes and classic designs reminiscent of the 60’s. Mad Men-esque? Perhaps, but always with a twist of McQueen on top. Well played Sarah Burton.

10/15/2012 Maggie Barry & Michael Antonio Shoes Fashion Show. #LAFW #SS2013 #Stunning (photo/video)

I am a Michael Antonio Shoes fan girl. For a long time I have been wearing, toting and secretly adoring their shoes. I love the style, grace, comfort and sexy they bring to my petite feet. Quite possibly, I dream of Michael Antonio shoes, because they are not only wonderful to wear but a late night fantasy (shhh it’s my dirty little secret).

Michael Antonio Buckled Heels

Maggie Barry is a creative genius, bringing imagination to life. Her clothing has been worn by stars who walk on air and want art in fashion as much as she does. She created Cher’s famous leather thong outfit from her ‘Turn Back Time’ video and she works, and plays with such famous names as Lady Gaga, Miss J. Alexander (ANTM) and uses singer and model Morganne Picard as her spokesmodel for her brand.

Morganne Picard with Maggie Barry

LA Fashion Week on Monday, October 15th was a visual collaboration brought together by both of these artists & designers to create a step away from traditional fashion to bring Fashion fusion/footwear to life for Maggie Barry and Michael Antonio’s SS 2013 show in downtown’s nightspot, Exchange LA.

This brought designers, stylists, fashionistas, actors, actresses, fashion/event photographer, trend watchers and the artistic diva’s of the night out.

I ran into Eric of Prep Jerks whose business as a stylist and fashion forward man is booming. Keep an eye on him here http://www.prepjerks.com. He’s got a taste for business, design and fashion that is unparalleled. Go Prep Jerks!

The collection was stunning, eclectic, bright, beautiful, unique and I loved every moment. I ran into friends (Vikki Lizzie, Sabrini Paridisi) saw a freak chic ladies from acting (Bai Ling, Phoebe Price) and loved the sleek futuristic runway clothing and shoes. From the flash to atmospheric after party, this event was a win/win.

Let’s take a look at who and what showed up,

A very HUGE thank you to Bob Degadillo for use of his photos!! He always makes me look gorgeous

Yes men dressed well too. Kilt’s are ALWAY in.

Showing shoes to Eric of Prep Jerks. Available at Bizzy B of Hollywood.

Loved her outfit, classic black with perfect bow topper.

This is how to steal the show. Greatest hat I have ever seen as well. unfortunately it’s a New York city one-of-a-kind find. Sorry ladies.

Best guys to party with. Over bar the bar these guys were cracking me up.

LA girls

Packed!

The most fabulous jacket there. Missing in photo, the sequins attached to this were iridescent.

The show ended with a giant dancing orb

The show tapped into an amazing visual of light with a cross of adult animation come to life. Think Aeon Flux done right. I have to commend and recommend checking out Maggie Barry for those who haven’t seen her art and fashion. The woman is beyond a visionary.

Check out the runway video below (I was in an uncomfortable position making, however it somehow made great footage).

Chanel SS 2013 For The Win!

We all know Karl Lagerfeld is relentless, superior, eccentric and bit of freak chic. With this years SS 2013 collection on a runway dotted with wind tunnels and eco fab, he is now insurmountable aka no one can bring it like he does.

Recreating the 80’s-90’s with a new and fresh twist Karl Lagerfeld focused on material and recreation of shape for SS 2013. Always an original he crossed pattern with shape making the figure less of a focus and focusing on big, bulky, large and fab! Always an original, he even added a little humor with his own take on obtuse bags, giving the house of Chanel a complete WIN!

Let’s take a look shall we;

(Forgive the late posting darlings, I am felled by the evilest of fever flu’s. If I don’t make sense chalk it up to my fever of 100 F)

SS 2013 Dolce and Gabbana’s Platforms and Prints! Retro 60’s Africanique Chic with a Side of Grecian Goddess #funkalicious

Dolce and Gabbana never cease to amaze me.

I believe they are the one design house that is consistently creating fashion that is wearable art. Playful, chic, unique, specialized and always with a twist they outdo themselves every season, creating something most can’t even imagine as much as visualize and make.

Check out some of the over the top, brightly colored beach, Grecian & Caribbean print chic they brought to life;

Backstage, retro stripes and Grecian inspiration for SS 2013 D&G line

Backstage mirrored supermodel sauciness

Gladiator print on a stunning orange/sexy silhouette with stunning platforms and breton stripes galore this season

Stripes and 60s twist done with D&G overdrive

Striped beach wear perfection, fab purse but I proclaim these the most stunning platforms of SS 2013!!!

Show stopper in bronze, red and yellow

Wicker and lace in perfect taste!

Couture Crazy and wearable?! Of course, it’s D&G!! A perfect end to SS 2013 ❤

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All hail the duo known as Dolce and Gabbana!

They are ALWAYS straight up fun. I hate stuffy designers who take themselves too seriously and these two always leave the show goers gasping and the runway smiling.

Goat Hair is the New Black, #ShoeSunday

It’s mid-way through summer and FW 2012/2013 is upon us. Fashion moves fast and even though I have only used my bikini once I’m already looking at my new winter wardrobe want’s.

It was my Twitter (shameless plug:follow me @HeathyrWolfe) that keyed me in to my new fashion fetish. Goat hair accessories.

Above is the Marni goat hair bag. Cute but a little plain.

I think it’s better to accessorize with something like this.

Jimmy Choo’s version;

Raaaaawwwr. Purr. Yes please.

And for a little flair in the shoe department, because no man or woman is complete without good shoe. I offer you the Yves Saint Laurent ‘Mohawk’ shoe.

or in blue

Oh sure, scream at me for being not PC. Peta has probably blacklisted me from any of their functions at this point. I know it’s from a cute(?) furry critter, but you know you secretly yearn for it too.

Consider the trend won’t you? I think we need more of this for fall and less of this.

(This is ACTUALLY Christian Lacroix)

Dontcha think?

Send in any new fall fetishes to Heathyrw@gmail.com and I might just blog ’em.

 

Shoes You Need – Alegandra G.

I try to keep my shoe addiction to a limit. I have 40 some odd pairs. That is low-key for me. Unfortunately as the next Imelda Marcos, I have found something to fuel my addiction. Alegandra G. Shoes.

Why do you need this. Let’s use a visual example.

Color is #thesex.

Add spikes and I will break my bank account

Feast your eyes on the SS 2012 collection’s ‘Asia H’Orange’.

This follows the trend of EVERY summer EVERYWHERE, bright colors. In summertime you want to wear amazing clothes that pop. Seeing this shoe made me think of warmth, sun and the ultimate LA thing, wearing next to nothing with a pair of hot shoes.

If you are looking for a little more class and not sass the appropriately named ‘Bradshaw’, is my next want of the moment.

I swear I could wear this with everything.

 

And if you are looking for a nice summer, sweet lacy look, this shoe is deliciously girliy. I like that it’s demure without being boring Boho.

‘The Kimberley’

If needed, it comes in classic black or tan for the fashionista who needs a calmer, gentler wedge.

Need another reason?

Alegandra G. shoes are starting to become of celebs. Because these demand sexy clients they have donned the feet of Adrianne Curry, Taryn Manning and the cute Lil Mama (think Nicki Minaj in wee form).

Signature sole’s with black and white stripes, shoe seduction and celebrities are grabbing these. And so am I.

Frankly I walk around LA too much so I think I’ll grab these ‘Amber’ spiked leopard print flats.

As a bitch on the go I need something comfortable and dangerous. This will keep the mugger’s away.

Street sweet and smart. Who is with me on this new shoe obsession?
