DKNY Delicious…

•July 8, 2008 • 3 Comments

Two summers ago I got myself this absolutely delicious new perfume – it was light, fresh, breezy and just absolutely perfect for the summer. I was so into this perfume that I got myself the shower gel, the lip gloss and the deodorant as well. Yup, this delicious scent was “Be Delicious” by DKNY. Now this was Donna Karan New York’s first “Be Delicious” perfume. Since then she’s come up with a red one and now a “midnight delicious” as well. If you ask me, the original bright green, apple-ish first Delicious still rules over the others by far, but here you have them all lined up in one go:

The Cute Korean Bolero!

Oh yeah baby, please skyscrape me! The Master – Manolo Blahnik!

•June 17, 2008 • 1 Comment

If you’re anything like me, then you just can’t get enough of luxury high heels. Designer high heels. Stilettos. High heeled court shoes. High heeled pumps. High heeled sandals. High wedges. High heeled boots. Any colour, any material, just keep ‘em skyscraper high and I’ll be at your party!

Soooo, this week as a part of the launch of the ‘Oh yeah baby, please skyscrape me!’ weekly coloumn I bring you the only man I could personally honestly dedicate it to – the master of skyscraper heels. We love him and we worship him. He started out with making shoes for his cats out of aluminium foil when he was a teenager in Spain – aren’t we grateful that he’s moved on from there! And moved on he sure has – Spain to Geneva to Paris to every woman’s heart! Greet the skyscrape master: the one and only Manolo Blahnik.

Yes, you men out there might not believe it or be willing to believe this but yes, a middle aged and balding, chubby Spanish-Czech man is capable of bringing supermodels, movie stars and all other women on this planet down to their knees swooning for him…

Yes, if my house would burn down and I could only save 3 things – it would have to be my passport, bank cards and my Manolos?

** – Skyscrape me is a weekly feature strictly about the highest of high heels, those beauties that combine pain, wealth, status, elegance and desire all in one with different styles, designers, stores and brands being presented each time.

The Jacket Hunt – the cute Korean Bolero! So Kawaii!

•June 16, 2008 • 1 Comment

No matter how much I shop and how much I could consider myself a bargain hunting-vintage store scouring-secret fashion finding professional shopper, there are some things that even to the best shopper remain a major pain to hunt for (one thing being the ultimate pair of jeans that we are all longing for, but that’s a while different topic). The other being the right jacket in the right material, right colour and right cut for the right time of year – does this tend to be found?! Uhmmmm no…so lets have a look around and see what we come across for now…

Today YesStyle brings us this super cute and absolutely adorable little structured bolero – ready to go with any dress or even a pair of jeans, wear it out in the evening or even to work! This is such a super flexible bolero – like you’ve never seen before! And at just $52.00 it’s an absolute steal as well! Available in gray and white.

**‘The Jacket Hunt’ is going to be a weekly feature with different styles, designers, stores and jackets being presented each time.
