Gallery: we pick our favourites from the Jimmy Choo for H&M line

By lotte on November 13th, 2009

The hotly-anticipated Jimmy Choo for H&M line of shoes, clothing and accessories launches in stores tomorrow, and we’re expecting queues of the sort not seen since the Comme des Garcons collection. The excitement is completely understandable – a lot of the shoes on sale are very similar to the full-price version, which means something approaching shoe perfection.

There are also some rather nice accessories, including a statement necklace that’ll glam up any LBD this Christmas. And if the man in your life is in need of a style update, there are classic Chelsea boots and cashmere-blend sweaters. But you should probably get there fast, because these clothes and shoes are going to be in high demand!

This video from the launch party shows most of the range in action, including Paris Hilton declaring her love for (shock, horror) the pink box clutch.

We’ve put together a gallery of our favourite bits. Click the shoes below to start.

Get Sienna Miller’s shoe style

By Andrea Petrou on August 19th, 2009

I’ve always been a fan of Sienna Miller’s dress sense ever since she came into the forefront of my fashion mind with her boho look many moons ago.

And if I’m honest, I’m also a bit envious; she gets it right all the time. So it will come as no surprise to you, that once again she has managed to pull off a trend, which a few other celebs may have struggled with, and that’s the brogue shoe.

Although these have been lurking quietly in the fashion aisle for a good few months now, we think they will be making a fully fledged fashion journey down the high street this season. Now we can’t give you Sienna’s lifestyle but we can you the top brogue buys on the high street.

ShinyStyle’s new editor

By Andrea Petrou on August 14th, 2009

andrea.jpgHi fellow fashionistas

I’m Andrea, the new editor of ShinyStyle. As a girl obsessed with all that glitters, sparkles, or even just has zips or buttons, I’m looking forward to bringing you all the news on the latest fashions.

And it’s not just clothes. Oh no, we’ll be talking about everything from bags, shoes, make up and accessories from the highstreet to high end.

Let’s admit it, we all love a bit of Primark (yes, I hold my hands up, my top in this picture is one such creation) as much as we adore Anna Sui and coo over Chanel.

I’ll also be bringing you the latest on celeb trends, which although look great most of the time, will sometimes also have an (almost gratifying) element of “what was she thinking?”

But who am I to judge? I’ll let you into a little secret, I too have made mistakes in the past. Think multi coloured tights teamed with a similar style dress, and no I wasn’t going to a 70’s club night. Oh dear.

I would love to hear more about you too so please get in touch via our comments and let me know about your favourite outfit, whether it’s Primark or Prada, and your worst fashion mistake. Come on, don’t be shy, we’re all fashion friends now.

By Kimberley Foster on June 23rd, 2009

Nicole richie.jpgFans of Nicole Richie and her House of Harlow 1960 jewellry line will no doubt be happy to hear the news that she will soon be adding clothes and shoes to her label.

The former reality TV star is getting ready to unveil her second collection, and has revealed that it will be a “totally different line.”

Video: Inside Paris Hilton’s mammoth mansion wardrobe

MySpace Fashion Presents The FIT with Paris Hilton

Here is something to really make you feel depressed about the recession (sorry!) Paris Hilton opens up her gigantic closet to the folks at MySpace’s The Fit. It reminds me of that scene from Will & Grace when Karen opens up her mammoth wardrobe to show Jack. And if you can look past Paris’s constant posing and flogging of her products, its a real eye-opener. Like an entire closet dedicated to shoes!

Yay or Nay Wednesday: Miu Miu sequin platform pumps

By Andrea Kiliany Thatcher on January 7th, 2009

DPOTW Miu Miu shoes.jpg

Don’t get us wrong, we love a Miu Miu shoe. But do you love this Miu Miu sequin platform pump, $950? Or, as Cher Horowitz would say, it is a full on Monet?

While the sequins might look less garish from far away, the seemingly random color placement may make the hue look muddled.

What do you think, yay or nay?

Designer Pick of the Week: A Christian Louboutin Simple Pump in a ‘nude’ to fit any skin tone

By Andrea Kiliany Thatcher on January 6th, 2009

Christian Louboutin simple pump.jpg

We have long touted the leg-lengthening properties of the “nude” pump. The problem is, the color of beige we typically think of as nude only matches one skin tone.

It would be Christian Louboutin who provides the solution. Louboutin’s Simple Pump 85 comes in, yes, a nude version which is a light beige, but also several other colors which will match a whole range of skin tones. Click the link to see them all.

Ladies of any and all colors rejoice! There’s a leg-lengthening, skin-tone matching pump out there for you. And by the shoe master himself. Provided you can spend $575 to $725 on a pair.

Ten fashionable gifts under $100

By Andrea Kiliany Thatcher on December 11th, 2008

10 under $100 1.jpg

We wrapped up $20 gifts under $200 and are on to the $50-$100 price range. The first thing we looked for? A fab coat for gifting to your favorite girl. We like this Gap plaid belted coat, on sale for $94.99, because the plaid can be a little holiday, a little preppy or a little indie depending on the giftee’s style. It’s a little something different for the girl who usually sticks to pea coats.

Retail Review: Marshall’s Shoe Mega Shop

By Andrea Kiliany Thatcher on November 20th, 2008

Marshall's Shoe Shop 1.JPG

While I’ve always been a fan of Marshall’s and shop there often, I will say there’s something about shoes mashed together in a less-than-desirable setting that makes you scoff at paying $40 a pair – even if that’s half what they’re sold at elsewhere.

Marshall’s seems to have cottoned on to this fact, and revealed new Marshall’s Shoe Mega Shops earlier this year. Instead of being arranged on no-nonsense shelving according to size, shoes are displayed a lot more like at a designer shoe outlet.

Keep reading for a chance to win a $250 shopping spree!

Fluevog yay or nay.jpg

Our shoe-obsessed sister site Shoewawa has made its feelings known about John Fluevogs, but we’d like to get your take.

If you like a bit of the out of the ordinary, then you should definitely check out their site. The About Fluevog page is a very entertaining read.

They basically feature a lot of gothic and vintage-inspired shoes, like the Sugar boots pictures, $379.

So what do you think, yay or nay?

When jeweler David Morris wanted a limited-edition shoe with a fine-jewelry spin, they called Jonathan Kelsey.

Kelsey designed a shoe with a fine-jewelry strap called the Fyren, which translates to “sin” in OId English.

You won’t believe who made these booties…

By Andrea Thatcher on October 7th, 2008

You by Crocs shoes 003.jpg

A few weeks ago I got an email asking me to review some Crocs. (Darn, now I’ve given it away, eh?) The public relations rep was fully aware of the impression Crocs have made on the fashion community, and even joked about it, assuring me that these were not the plastic clogs seen on 5-year-olds everywhere.

You by Crocs is the brand’s new, “higher end” line of adult footwear with … well, style! There are a ton of trendy boots for fall, almost all made of real leather.

My favorite of the two shoe-booty options are the Twisted Tart booties, $150, seen at left. I wore these walking around First Friday in my city and my feet held up pretty well thanks to extra padding in the ball of the foot and heel.

For people’s reactions and two more styles, keep reading.
