A Few Of My Favourite Things (& Passion 4 Fashion Linkup)

 These are a few of my favourite things:

  • Red Lipstick
  • Shiny Red Shoes
  • Big Scarves
  • Faux fur & faux leather, even better together (this one needs to be in my possession!)
  • Well fitting black skinny jeans that hold their shape (these are my new best friends!)
  • Gel nails.. i had my first 2 weeks ago, amazing, has changed my nail polish loving heart forever
  • Statement Jewllery.. d'uh ;) But particulary Big earrings! Love
  • Easy hair, piled on top of my head, all week long.. no shame.
  • Breton tops, infact striped ANYTHING. A week does not pass without me donning some stripes
  • Comfy flats to change in to when heels are just too much! Enter Butterfly Twists... oh yes... Life.Savers.

 You may of heard of the little foldaway shoes that you can keep in your bag for when your heel loving heart just can't take the height anymore. You just whip the little fold-up shoes out and pop them on for instant comfort. Butterfly Twists are the clever people behind these rather wonderful feet saving companions. Not only are they heavenly for the feet they are SO stylish too! I mean just look...Leopard print, my total favourite. Pretty and Practical, (and might i add a complete bargain too!) I won't just be whipping these out of my bag at the end of a hectic day, i actually would choose to put these on at the beginning of the day. Their cushioned soles make them like slippers which makes ranks these highly in my shoe of choice!
Have you ever purchased fold up shoes? I can highly recommend Butterfly twists.
Infact i will be back to buy more for sure!

  19. I love EVERYTHING about this look. EVERYTHING. It's hard to tell which one is my favorite because the look is thought out, balanced, and cohesive. The pops of the bright red are gorgeous and not overpowering. FANTASTIC! :)


  20. that jacket is perfection, I am echoing Riva in that all the pieces are drool worthy but that jacket for me is amazing. I do keep looking at the folding shoes, ( better then the sneakers in my office or the slippers that i change into LOL)

  24. you are the only woman I know that can look chic while carrying heels and wearing flats!! I love this whole photoshoot, and your camera must be incredible because the red of those red shoes is almost edible!

    I feel like I need to conduct an impromptu interview with "how has your style changed since you started blogging". I usually look through the archives of my favourite bloggers and have noticed a definite change in your style, like a maturing of sorts.

    Ok gonna go link up now! I need an extra 10 - 12 hours in the day!

  25. Oh pretty lady - I want this whole dang outfit in my closet now!! :) (you just let me know when you have another blog-sale lady - I love the sophisticated evolution of your style!!!)

  26. How funny! My post today features my love of fold-up emergency flats, too! I guess at this point our Vulcan mind-meld is no longer surprising, but it's still pretty entertaining. You look great!!


  27. Heels might bring about the #tallgirlproblems but this outfit is fantastic! I'm yet to own a pair of foldable shoes as I often wear dressy flats anyway but these are so frickin cute.
    Looking stunning, as always!

  33. Aw the foldaway shoes are adorable and I love your red heels too. This is a perfect outfit. You can't go wrong with a good pair of black jeans and I really like the striped top and plaid scarf paired with them. You look awesome!
