Is it a medieval torture device or a belt? Depends how tight you cinch it we supposed.
The real question is: Yay or Nay?
To be fair we’ll show you what it looks like as part of an outfit after the jump.
We’re in the mood for classics with a twist today at Shiny (see the LaPrairie limited edition jeweled version of their covetted Skin Caviar Luxe Cream over at ShinyGloss!).
There are 27 versions currently available on the Web site, not to mention the made to order trench coat service available at Burberry stores. Lucky patrons are able to select the style, color, warmer, lining, and collar.
2007 was definitely the year that the prices of it-bags got out of control but could 2008 be the year of the $100,000 bag? As the majority of sane people continue to be appalled by the average cost of a designer it-bag Burberry release an extreme priced bag. Made of alligator skin with metal stud detailing the new ‘Warrior’ tote comes in at a ridiculous $22,000.
As Linda Grant at the Guardian rightly points out, the most worrying thing about this is that it’s not the most expensive bag available. You can get a Hermés alligator tote for $55,000 (£28,000)! Seems that alligator is the way to go for ridiculously expensive glamour! How much higher can the prices really go?
There’s so much action and silly scenes of models like Agyness Deyn and Lily Donaldson in this video of this shoot for a Burberry advertising campaign, we think we need to examine the still images to really get a handle on the clothes.
To follow our lead, check out the images over on Catwalk Queen.
These just in: bordeaux quilted patent leather ear muffs from Burberry. Now there’s no question, if you’re going to wear ear muffs, these are the most fabulous ones to sport – but would you wear ear muffs? If you live somewhere like Georgia and don’t really have a winter, you might not even be able to contemplate such an accessory, but in colder climes it’s often tempting to wrap your entire head in a wool scarf just to get the mail. So, would you wear ear muffs?
I fell in love with these studded Louboutin’s (above, left) as soon as I saw them on Net-a-porter.com. But at $1,150 they’re not exactly in my freelance writer price range. These Black Eleanora studded heels from Hollywould are fantastic, but at $745 they’re still way over budget. For an affordable version, try these Jeffrey Campbell heels from ShopIntuition.com, only $100, which are very similar to the Burberry studded platform sandals (above, right), available for $940 at Nordstrom.

While procrastinating at work, I came across this Check Wrap Coat by Burberry for $1,395 and realized I’d seen something just like it while shopping at Urban Outfitters the other day. At Urban the Lux Little Edie Cape is only $78. If you belted it, it would look so cute and really similar to the Burberry item. These plaid numbers are perfect for keeping you toasty and comfortable when the weather turns cold, while still looking very city chic.
