Vannesa Hudgens – Bohemian Inspired Look

I’m still not sure how I feel about Vanessa Hudgens’s take on fashion, but what I do know, is that almost everytime I come across to an image showcasing her casual, off-duty style, I feel the need to save it, for later inspiration.


Party Like A Rockstar

“There’s a place I know, If you’re looking for a show, where they go hardcore and there’s glitter on the floor” … sounds familiar ? Of course it does, for mainly two reasons : 1. it’s Kesha – Take It Off (great party anthem) and 2. it could be the place everyone’s talking about these days, or haven’t you been already asked ” Where are you going to celebrate the New Year’s Eve ? “. Sure you have, it’s the top question of the month.

So, all throughout the year I’m IN for the comfort, the flats before the heels kind of comfort, always (almost), and that of course has got to change. It’s just got to. And I’m going to end 2011 and start 2012 with a fresh approach, like a lady and instead of wearing super duper comfy shoes, I’m gonna go for heels, black ones. That’s just because I don’t own anything glittery, I would have loved to add some sparkles to the fresh start. Maybe next year.

But that didn’t stopped me from virtually “shopping” or better yet “researching” for the perfect matching heels. What I found were 16 beautiful pairs of shoes, perfect for New Year’s Eve celebration, or any other celebration that is, so I thought I’d share my findings with you, for a little bit of inspiration.

ShoeMint – 2012 Winter Debut Collection

If you’re planning to expand your shoe collection next year or better yet, you’re still searching for the perfect pair of shoes for the Holidays, you should definitely check out ShoeMint.

I posted the news about Rachel Bilson’s own shoe line created in collaboration with stylist Nicole Chavez and legendary Steve Madden a while back, as they were planning on releasing a full collection only next year. With 2012 just around the corner, the amazing trio decided to give us a hint of what’s coming with a winter debut collection focusing on three designs, that come with two different options each.

The first design is a pair of lace-up statement wedge booties named Jolly after a “special woman Nicole and Rachel met while visiting Uganda last year”. They come in Taupe Suede and Leopard Pony and look just like this :


The second design – Pauline – named after Nicole’s grandmother, is a pair of suede platform booties with a gold corset detail. They come in Wine Suede and Black Suede looking perfect in both colors :


And the final design called Edith, after Rachel’s grandmother this time, is a beautiful pair of statement heels. You can find them in Black Suede or Blush Suede (my favorite pair).


We will definitely be seeing more of ShoeMint on the blog, I cannot wait for the entire collection to be released and for the girls to start wearing the shoes.
