Whilst scanning SheerLuxe.com I found myself linked to Black White Denim, an amazing retailer specializing in contemporary designer pieces. I came into contact with these on the point of all points sneakers by Italian footwear label Forfex, created by Designer Giovanni Forbice and worn by the likes of style icon Rihanna. 

In a bid to top up and build on my ‘casual’ shoe collection I knew I had to invest in these or I would regret it later. White shoes are everything. And these hi-tops featuring leather studded inserts are a mix between simple vs. flamboyant, which is the perfect kind of combination to make a style statement.

Think I’ll team them up with the ASOS acidwash boyfriend jean (once I can get my hands on a pair – bane of my life stalking the ASOS site to see if they’re in stock in my size!) or some jersey joggers and a plain crop top to channel an effortless rebel-chick look, whilst completely sneaking in the whole sportswear – urban-casual fashion trend that has intersected my AW12 wardrobe this season.

Note of the week: There is no better way to cheer yourself up than splashing out on a new pair of shoes. Shoes buy happiness people!

Since discovering the black loafers in a previous post below, my fugly shoe empire has been expanding ever since. Many people loathe loafers but I for one have fell head over heels for the masculine footwear trend which I believe is a staple item in any shoe collection. I spotted these white preppy loafers in Topshop and had to invest in them as my new S/S shoe, they are so femininely masculine which will look perfect with this seasons pastel and neon colour palette. I'm all for details on shoes, and Urban Outfitters got it spot on this time with a subtle boy meets girl finishing on the black flats with the cute heart detailing. 

What's your choice of shoe this Spring Summer?

 A few weeks back my Fashion Marketing class had the opportunity to work with stylist Jennifer Anyan who gave us the task of creating a look with a classic white shirt. My group decided to focus on manipulating the shape of the shirt to create something entirely new whilst keeping everything else simplistic. I liked the idea of changing the masculine silhouette of the shirt into something a little more feminine. How would you wear a white shirt?
