Isabel Marant Sneakers

 Hey Fashion Lovers * wink*

I am not a sneaker person and I came across these high-top sneakers awhile  ago and didn't know what to make of it. I don't just jump on trends because they are trending but because I can embrace the trend in every way possible. The Isabel Marant sneakers have been seen everywhere, being a * self-confessed* blog stalker i know that these sneakers are a major big deal in the bloggersphere world and everyones going craze about trying to get a their hands on a pair because they are sold out at most retailers...I kid you not!!
The Sneakers Isabel Marant undoubtedly are a great type of sports shoes offer an abundance of comfort together with support designed for stability together with cushioning which is what you look for in sneakers right??
Still don't know what I am on about remember Beyonce's Love on top music video well she is wearing a pair we on the same page right?

I haven't seen anyone in South Africa wearing these sneakers but I know people inquiring about these sneakers, i am hoping to see these sneakers around so my mind can be changed about know the saying " Too much media can influence your opinion about something"
 Below are celebs overseas that have been seen stomping in Isabel Marant sneakers

Trend Alert: Body Chains/Body Bling

OMG! I came across such an amazing trend, I loooooooove it!!!!!! I promise you jewellery just got more exciting. Imagine being able to wear your jewellery anywhere you wish on your body. On your legs, shoulders, waist and even arms... Well, now you can!.... I call this "Body Bling" or "Body Chains"as it is widely known. I had seen it before on a couple of runway shows, but I had never really paid much attention to it because I assumed it was part of the showcase presentation. When I recently spotted it on a couple of fashionistas I knew we had a 'keeper'!!! I then went on a drastic hunt to find a body chain locally and by the grace of the Most High, I FOUND it! Found one at Sass Diva for R330. I will do a post on it as soon as I wear it, which will probably be later today because I am beyond excited about this trend.

Accessories complete one's look, they give the final touch to your outfit and this trend does more than that, it gives your ensemble another life. It makes a statement. Its bold and daring, but chic and stylish. It is very easy to pull-off because you wear as you would normal jewellery, except this you would throw over your body. Locally I have not seen it on anybody but international this trend has taken over, it has been spotted on a number of celebrities; Rihanna, Evelyn Lozada and Jessica Sanchez just to name a few. Below are images to illustrate the trend...

This right here is just for my ladies....Holla!!!!!!!!!
