SOLE HOT OR SOLE NOT: GABRIELLA MARINA

This shoe is from Gabriella Marina Gonzalez's Spring 2011 collection. “The Cyclops Apprentice” collection started with these bold, boulder-anchored booties. Featuring strips of duplex leather in yellow and red that twist up the dramatic platform and serve to strap down the zippered uppers, the overall effect is undoubtedly fitting: fire.

What are your thoughts? Sole Hot or Sole Not?

SOLE CHRONICLES: SURI CRUISE

Star Magazine is reporting that Suri Cruise (daughter of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise) has an estimated £100000 pound shoe collection. This translates into roughly $162,000 is US currency! How exactly does a 5 year old have a $162,000 shoe collection? Someone please answer this for me.. By the time that she's 10, she'll be sitting on a milli! It has also been reported that she commissioned a pair of Christian Louboutin's.. REALLY SURI? A pair of Louboutin's? Girl stopppp!!

Sources say that Suri has had several pairs of high-heeled footwear custom-made for her and already has picked up her favorite designers, such as Marc Jacobs. This story is getting more excessive by the minute.. I can take many things from this story.. many thoughts are running rampant but one main idea is sticking in my head.. I have to step my game up! I can not and will not be out done by a 5 year old! Lol. #thatisall

SUMMER MUST HAVE: STRAW FEDORA!












Ready or not.. SUMMER IS HERE! And what better way is there to bring in summer, other than with an ultra chic straw fedora hat! Of course the fedora is nothing new, per se.. We've seen this hat year after year... summer after summer. However, it remains one of those seasonal pieces that will always have its moment to shine.

This season, the fedora has been updated by adding a splash of color around the brim. Traditionally, we have seen the natural straw fedora with the wide black band and this look is still in style [See Jennifer Hudson]. So don't fret if you've picked up a traditional fedora in the last few weeks.. it is not out dated! If you have one from last year.. by all means, pull it out... but don't be limited to the neutral colors!

Have fun with your wardrobe and splash color on your hat! [See Beyonce & Eva Longoria]. Always remember to let the band color of the hat, accent your ensemble! Do you see yourself wearing this trend? Drop me a comment and share your thoughts..

SEEN ON THE SCENE: LAUREN LONDON

Casa Decor put together a charity event called 'Surreal4Real'. It was held here in L.A. on Thursday night, over at Vibiana and benefited The Little Princess foundation and Haven Hills.

Many celebs came out to support the event and 'Single Ladies' star, Lauren London, graced the red carpet looking fab in a pair of LANVIN platform sandals. The nude platform sandal feaures an antique brass chain that wraps around the spine of the foot and a novelty stiletto heel. It is available on Bluefly for $860.

SNEAK PEEK: CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN FALL 2011

Hey Shoenista's.. I know it's not even summer yet but I have a SNEAK PEEK of Christian Louboutin's Fall 2011 collection! Prepare yourself for a complete and total MELTDOWN my fabs..

This collection is filled with studs, texture, metallic colors, lace, tweed, fur, buckles and suede. I think I am going to be living off bread and water to finance my love of this collection! I am BEYONDDD obsessed with the ALEX, the OULANBATOR, the HELMOUR, the DAFFODILE, the FIFI, the PUCK, and the METALIPP! They are all my MUST HAVES for the Fall season! As I've said before, it is really going to take some time for me to warm up to the thick, chucky heels. In my Dwight voice from RHOA, "Ohhh.. how dreadful!" Lol. I'm a stilleto kinda girl.. the thinner, the taller... the better! Then again, this just shows you the influence of Balenciaga because they definitely spearheaded the chunky heel movement.

Nevertheless, which pieces do you love? Which do you loathe? What are your thoughts on Louboutin’s fall collection so far?

Ready.. Set.. Fall in LOVE!
