Frequently standing or running around at work sometimes opt for less stylish solutions to our souls. The days of grandma, I mean ballet flats to work have changed. Clarks has recently produced Kaur approved heels for everyday at the office, that transitions nicely to evening date options. Although I have to sacrifice the stiletto heel, a chunkier heel will provide more comfort over the long day.

Versace for H&M ?!?!

Missoni for Target ?!?!

Karl Largerfield for Macy’s ?!?!

High quality products with signature looks that are comparable to their own designer trends that are wearable- well its a great feeling!

Get dolled up ladies, Nicki Minaj’s bubonic ass (you must see for its unique audio) is now the face of her online MAC exclusive “Barbie’s” lipstick! The Nicki Minaj Pink Friday 4 Lipstick is inspired by the release of this rad emcee’s debut album, Pink Friday. Not only because I like Miss Minaj’s creativity, but this pink hued lipstick works well with black and grey base outfits. A nice change from all the deep red rage on the runways.I would wear the lipstick shade with nothing too extreme unless your going for the Rihana M.I.A factor.

Over-the-knee boots are among the most popular styles that celebrities love to wear. Get inspired from Dior, Christian Louboutin, and Burberry this season. These boots are incredibly hot and drive people crazy with amazing styles and designs. Over-the-Knee Boots, give ultra-slim look to show attitude and a bold fashion statement. I think they are meant to be seen, so team them with short dresses, blazers,  skirts, leggings, or anything that you want to attract attention. These boots come in sleek high heel as well as flats.

I am really feeling Nine West Mcquire Boot right now. Turn up any night out in the town with this glam over-the-knee boot.

Fashion news just seems to be getting more and more exciting. With rumors of Karl Lagerfields sucessor, and his new party dresses at Macy’s; the leek of some Valentino looks at the gap are giving me fashion goosebumps. The Russian, militaria and romantic gestures gets me excited about the ruffles look from Valentino at the gap.  Whats next Proenza for Zellers? I wish.

As the economic market has slumped desingner luxury goods down 14% from last year, which is a 2 million dollar decrease or lost revenue. The idea of bargain and shopportunisitc companies like TJ MAXX, Winners, Macy’s, even Zeller’s are blundering in the mess of slower pace sales of fashion. The trend of designer labels becoming more affordable is a much welcomed revloution.
