Celebrations, Chani, Christmas 2014

All I Want for Christmas is Shoessssssssss!

In my part of the world we really don’t get all the seasons although the climate turns a bit cooler and the days are shorter and the nights longer during December. Maybe because of that I have an unexplained lust for winter fashion.

However it never stops me from admiring the most wonderful designs that come out in the fall and the one thing I simply cannot do without are shoes.

Since the holidays are a time for indulgence I veered a little towards ultimate luxury. These are some of the on trend must haves for Fall 2014.

Now if only I could  get my hands on one…err two… I mean six of these. Sigh!




Gucci is about high glamour and excellent craftsmanship and why I love this pair is because it embodies just that.


The hounds tooth jacket is something of a Dior legend and this is a perfect homage to that.

Celine - Thigh high boots Celine- Thigh High Boots ( Dies!!!)

Celine…this is Parisian legend and stands for everything we love about that effortless class they exude. Timeless, glove soft, impeccable class.

Fendi Fendi –  Talk about colour

Fendi is all about fur and although I am not a fan of fur i cannot help but admire the design and the fact that the character of Fendi is so well encapsulated in this design

Isabel Marant Isable Marant

The go to designed of the younger celebs and jet set. Today Marant is the last word on style. Everybody and anybody wants what she makes.

McQueen Alexander McQueen

Even though Lee is no longer there, there is the sense of drama and high fashion in this design. A bit whimsical and flirty, perfect to brighten up your mood.

Chanel Chanel

Classic, timeless and ultimate luxury. So true to its character as well.

Prada Prada

The Devil wears Prada for a reason. The reason is pure decadence.

Ralph Lauren Ralph Lauren

 They always do this equestianish thing which is super fabulous

Balmain Balmain

Slouchy fun and a bit rock and roll

Soniya Rikiel Sonia Rykiel

I did not even have to look at the label to know this. Signature style epitomized. Brilliant. I have added a picture of her just to emphasize just how much of the Rykiel DNA is in this design.


armani Armani

Very very elegant.

Sergio RossiSergio Rossi

They are renowned for making very feminine and high end products and one look at this tells you why. How sexy and feminine is this boot, it might as well be a stiletto sandal for its sense of lightness.

And some of us ( and by that I mean Anne) are terribly lucky to get pre- Christmas loot !! *Dying with envy*
