Christian Louboutin Belle Leather Ankle Boots Look4Less

Winter is finally catching up with us so its time to invest in a pair of winter ankle boots.  I love the smooth calfskin leather and the feminine shape of these fab ankle boots. I love how simple yet beautiful they are. These ankle boots have been worn by numerous celebs including Demi Moore, Jessica Alba and Hana Soukupva. I'd love to add my name to the list but unfortunately its the same old story, too expensive and sold out. The Christian Louboutin Belle Leather Ankle Boots cost €995 an are available from the Christian Louboutin website.


If you can’t afford Louboutins yet still crave the elegance of the fabulous boots above have a look at my Look4Less below. The boots below may not have the signature red sole but they are definitely inspired by the original Louboutin boots. The boots below are from ALDO and cost €100, they are definitely an investment piece, but they are genuine leather so will stand the  test of time.

Etro Gold-Plated Paisley Ring Look4Less

I love the filigree paisley design and long length of this ring. It is like a piece of armour for your finger, a very stylish piece of armour that is ! This long length style is open at the back for added flexibility, in case you were worried about that. This gorgeous gold plated ring is by Etro and is available to buy now at Net-a-Porter. At only €110 this really is an affordable piece of designer costume jewellery but of course that isn't to say there isn't a Look4Less available.
 
Not as delicate as the original I admit, but for €8 you’ll get the same stunning look without having to spend a small fortune. This is just a great Look4Less apart from the price these rings are almost identical. The ring below is from Asos and costs €8. The main difference between this and the original is the fact that the Asos ring has a hinge in the middle allowing it to bend with your finger.

Altuzarra Monochrome Peplum Dress Look4Less

With monochrome being the trend of the moment, I decided to bring you another Look4Less featuring the trend. The dress below will do wonders for your body. First of all, we all know that black is slimming, the vertical strip then elongates the body and the peplum extenuates your waist. This dress really is amazing, it incorporates so many trends in one, monochrome, peplums and stripes. This altuzarra dress is available from ssense.com and costs €1625.



I stumbled across this dress on the Internet while looking for a high street alternative. It is from Jane Norman and costs €46. The two dresses are almost indentical if you overlook the difference in the peplum. These dresses are both incredibly versatile, perfect for night out but they could also be dressed down and worn to work.

Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Leather Bag Look4Less

Intrecciato leather is Bottega Veneta's signature style when it comes to bags. Intrecciato is the style in which the leather is woven. Bottega Veneta bags use the highest quality buttery soft leather. One thing that sets these bags out from other designer bags is the lack of logos. So if you are a fashionista looking for high quality but don't want a brand name splashed all over your bag, this is most likely the bag for you. The Bottega Veneta Maxi Veneta intrecciato leather shoulder bag costs €2095 and is available from net-a-porter.com.



Dozens of celebrities own this bag including Reese Witherspoon and Sarah Jessica Parker. Somehow I can't see myself dropping that much on a bag in the future. The bag below is from baginc.com and is almost identical. The only two differences are the price and the fact that the La Scalla bag is faux leather. The La Scalla bag costs €45.

My Best Dressed of 2013

1. Kate Middleton
Kate doesn't even have to try to be a style icon........... and pregnancy didn't get in her way either. Her style is classically vintage, she is a great representative for the royal family.


2.Diane Kruger
Not only do Diane's fabulous red carpet moments excite me but also her amazing "I don't care" casual looks when she looks so effortlessly chic and stylish.


3. Olivia Palermo
Olivia's style choices are laid back yet fun and polished, she is the ideal inspiration for anyone who likes to dress because they like it and not because everyone else does.

4. Lily Collins
2013 was a fabulous fashion year for Lily Collins. I feel like she has really come into her own this year. She showed us how brave she is, from embracing her pale skin to sporting the quirkiest dress out there. I can't wait to see her in 2014.


5. Emma Watson
Emma's timeless beauty and large eyes are the perfect complement to any of her outfits. She really has grown-up from her Harry Potter days.


6. Alexa Chung
Everyone wants to dress this girl, she makes everything she wears look super cool. And on top of that she never looks like she's trying too hard.


7. Zoe Saldana
Zoe always looks breath-taking on the red carpet, she's not afraid to take risks.


8.Miranda Kerr
Miranda's taste is impeccable, and her every step on her heeled feet doesn't miss on the style stakes. but then again she has the body of an angel and would look great in a bin bag.


9. Princess Madeleine of Sweden
A lot of people probably won't have heard of Princess Madeleine. She isn't in line for the thrown she is just a stylish princess. And as amazing as Kate wedding dress was, I do love Madeleine's a little bit more.


10.Lea Michele
This girl has a killer body and she makes sure to show it off to perfection, whether it be in a thigh high mini dress or a neck plunging gown.
