Gladiator Goodness

In one word…. Sexy! Thanks to Tom Ford, Altuzarra, Gianvito Rossi, Jimmy Choo and a few other shoe genius’ we have something else to go completely nuts over. The Gladiator Knee High Sandal. These babies didn’t just pound the runway, it’s one trend we will see quite a bit of this Spring/Summer. Some celebrities that have been seen  parading in them include Jennifer Lopez, Rita Ora, and Nicki Minaj. While definitely making a statement as a heel, don’t under-estimate these show-stoppers as flat, as they really take a classic pair of shorts up a couple notches…. Enjoy!

The Trench.

The Trench coat makes a remarkable statement and is obviously a staple in everyone’s wardrobe. This item is probably the most versatile item in outerwear, and with the vast styles and colors of the trench coat there is definitely no excuse for anybody not to have one. Here are some of my favorites 🙂

Today’s Designer Indulge: 3.1 Phillip Lim

So a couple of days ago I decided to try out Lyst.com and fell in love with the site. Now those of you who are familiar with Lyst are probably thinking what blogger wouldn’t love Lyst ? Well, I didn’t just fall for it because of all the great perks that are available, but it’s just an awesome site! It’s a shoppers dream, and extremely user-friendly.

While setting up my “Lyst” I discovered some really awesome stuff, but when I searched by designer that’s when it happened. I am a huge fan of 3.1 Phillip Lim, so obviously I started with him. Everything on the page was absolute heaven, but since I wanted to share the “Loves of my Lyst” with you, I kept it at a minimum. Well kinda. Anyway,take a look! All the items below are available along with my other favorites at lyst.com/kimdanielle.
