July Wish List

This month’s wishlist is a bit early. We have some lovely treats for Eid at some amazing prices, thanks to sales still being on.

1. Prerto Earrings
These earrings are absolutely gorgeous. They would jazz up a pair of jeans or complement a Lehenga perfectly. These would come in handy not just at Eid, but at an iftar party as well. The site has some variations of these earrings so grab a pair while they are in stock.

2. Astha Narang Lehenga
The threadwork on this Lehenga is exquisite. The Lehenga is also in an amazing colour so can be worn all seasons. It can easily be worn at a wedding without any fear of upstaging the bride. Now if only we had an excuse to grab one ourselves…

3. Christian Louboutin pumps
The birthstone for July is the ruby, which is why this list has some element of red to all our picks. For us, the most iconic red is the Louboutin sole. This pair is a wardrobe staple.

4. Fendi 2jours tote
The house of Fendi always had the baguette as an iconic bag. The 2jours tote is on its way to the hall of fame. We love the combination of colours and how the turquoise interior looks against the red. The best part is its at a 30% discount.

5. Ruby and Diamond ring
What’s a celebration without bling? This Blue Nile ruby and Diamond ring is breath taking. It’s perfect as an engagement ring or as a complement to your ethnic outfit. Either way its definitely heirloom material.

These earrings are oh so chic and within complete any outfit in a heartbeat. Aly loves accesorising and these earrings would fit in perfectly in her closet.

I’ll let you in on a secret. Every year Aly plans her birthday outfit. This is my pick for this year.

3. Valentino –  Rockstud 100 t-bar heeled sandals

I have known Al to go weak in the knees for bags and watches, but these are the only shoes I have seen her crave.

4. Roberto Cavalli – ‘Pearls Mask’ Necklace

The two of us love a lot of accessories. I use my bags and shoes and Aly uses her jewellery and watches. I think this necklace while out of her comfort zone would add the right amount of oomph to a night out outfit.

5. Neverfull MM

And finally.. Her Achilles heel is anything from Louis Vuitton. Tote bags are the lady’s style and this Neverful in green epi leather is absolute perfection.

Happy Birthday Aly!!! I hope you have everything on this list and any list this birthday and always!! Xoxo

Adding Fuel to the Fire

One of my most vivid shoe memories is a collective gasp from the entire female audience at the theatre watching Sex and the City 2 as the cameras panned in on the most gorgeous shimmery golden Louboutins worn by Carrie Bradshaw. I fell in love again only to notice my first love shaking his head in the next seat wondering why the ladies in the theatre were going gaga for red soles.

I spent the most of my free time after the movie trying it figure out how I could get my hands on a pair. The price tag somehow didn’t match up with my student budget even if I only had soup for the rest of the year! I let go and continued on having discovered Asos and sample sale websites.

Having seen the first signs of my love for leather ( he hasn’t lost the chance to remind me I’m a vegetarian), he surprised me with an ‘I missed you over the hols’ pair of gorgeous Michael Kors T straps. More of those later I promise. All mention of shoes and anything was soon forgotten in the craziness that is student life. Nearer my birthday however, I started having a think about what I would like for a present. My now husband asked me for a list and I sent him a link to a Paparazzi magazine clutch. He also for some reason asked me whether I liked shoes better or bags. At that point, consumed by red soles I was in crazy stupid love with shoes. I reminded him of the SATC pair and said those were my dream.
Paparazzi Clutch

A month on all was forgotten and close to my birthday he said he would be getting me the clutch so I could wear it with my outfit for the concert we were going to on the night of my birthday. We were getting ready at my aunt’s place and heading off together. While there he asked me when I wanted my presents. I said anytime, although I needed the clutch so I could put my things in. He said OK, but what about the other presents. That’s when I realised he said presents – with an ‘s’. I asked him what else he bought me with a very suspicious look. He said shoes. I said o cool. But I know what I’m wearing tonight. He said fine and handed me a box with all the nonchalance that only a man handling shoes he doesn’t understand could muster.

Somehow, the rest is a blur. I have vague recollections of prancing around like a mad idiot going my precious. That was the point I knew, this was one affair that was never going to end.
