I believe in kissing, kissing a lot.  I believe in being strong when everything goes wrong. I believe that the happiest girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day. And I believe in miracles.” – Audrey Hepburn

Undoubtedly my new Jimmy Choo pumps would get a big thumbs up from Audrey.  They certainly make me feel happy! I get lots of questions about these shoes when I wear them (along with raised eyebrows of surprise I am stepping out, quite literally, in colour.)

I love to style them with my favourite black pieces and have the eye drawn to my feet; here I’m wearing my Helmut Lang leather jacket (are you tired of seeing this yet? No? Good, me neither!) Gap skinnies and simple tee from ASOS.  Sunglasses are once again stolen from American Boyfriend because let’s be honest, Jimmy Choo plus Gucci is a pretty feel good factor all round :)

These Anouk pumps from Choo are beautifully curved with a 4.8 inch heel height.  For those of you stiletto geeks it is a truly well proportioned shoe, something Choo must know well as the style is available in many different colours. I’m a huge fan of the silver pump in metallic leather and the jade green snakeskin effect pair.  If you can’t stretch to Choo prices then check out LKBennett for similar styles – my friend Anna of South Molton St Style models a fabulous pair of their green pumps HERE.

Von Vonni Transformer Dress & Bill Hallman Coat

I love this dramatic, flowing black lace fishtail dress (on my Christmas wish list!)

Friday Lingerie Lust: Fortnight Lingerie Asteria 2013

For spring summer 2013, Fortnight Lingerie‘s Asteria: Twenty Thirteen collection is influenced by postmodern design, geometric shapes and architecture and inspired by films such as Kubrick’s 2001: Space Odyssey.  It is an exciting collection because the brand have released more styles and colours than before – my favourite additions being the bandeau bra (seen before on the blog here) and the contour slip, below:

Fortnight have given us a solid bold colour palette of magenta, vermilion and cyan this season.  This set below is quite striking:

You can view a teaser video for the new collection here.  As a lingerie brand, Fortnight are a perfect balance of luxurious comfort and modern style.  Asteria: Twenty Thirteen will be available to buy later in the year.

You can buy Fortnight at Journelle, Faire Frou Frou and Forty Winks.
