Which Stella?

I feel the mid-heel is far more practical for my lifestyle.

Both massively reduced at The Outnet.

Here and here.

What a perfect Summer sandal!

Good one Sydney.)

Something Else collaborates with artist Julie Verhoeven to bring a unique collection for Spring 2012. From where I’m standing it is influenced by the Wild West and salutes to Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Metallic and studded detail here and there give a Rodeo vibe, combined with leather and steel belts and heavy chokers. However the collection stays feminine with sheer fabrics and long skirts with slits to the thigh. Shirts are tailored or loose tees, and cardigans and jumpers are long. High-waisted, wide-leg trousers reign, as well as wardrobe staples such as printed leggings. Hints of lace and draped, semi-sheer dresses make for a subtly sexy silhouettes.

I’m not complaining, there’s nothing better than Summer clothes that let you breathe.

Verhoeven brings her prints to life across the garments and behind these campaign images. Here are a few via Something Else.

Your question should be: how can I not buy all that cactus print?

“Rio” Banana and Papaya earrings, “Sea Excursion” Pink Fish studs, Hippo studs, “Enchanted Garden” Square earrings, “Rio” Skull stretch ring, “Rio” Case Skull Bead Gypsy earrings, “Rio” Frog earrings, Ladybug feather earrings, “Rio” Pineapple earrings, Ladybug studs, Turtle studs.

While we’re on the topic of earrings and quirky themes of jewelry, it seems appropriate to bring Betsey Johnson into the conversation.

Although her brand filed for bankruptcy, she is still overseeing her jewelry and I couldn’t be happier. Not only is it affordable, she has truly unique, fun design ideas unlike anyone I have seen.

Yes I did add a sneaky ring, but who can deny themselves of a party skull with fruit on it’s head?! Fantastic!

And yes we have discussed my love of any fashion resembling food. I would have to say this is the reason my favourite of this selection of jewelry is the pineapple drop earrings.

Insects and other animals are also wonderful. How cute are the little hippo heads! That is not a question.

Visit my Polyvore to track down these glorious works of art.

Please note: the fun doesn’t stop there. Check out ShopStyle to see a full selection of Betsey’s jewelry including rings, bracelets, necklaces and watches.

Happy Monday! I am sick at home today so I hope your day has been nicer than mine. x

I call this one “How I Would Be Dressed Right Now
If My Bank Account So Permitted”.

Originally this set was going to be a compilation of all my “recently viewed” items on farfetch.com however Polyvore is very generous so the situation got a bit out of control.

Lately I haven’t been wearing jewelry except maybe the occasional necklace. Maybe it’s because of the fact that I’m bored of all the rings, bracelets and necklaces I’ve been piling on for the past years.

In recent weeks I have been really into the look of a casual shirt and fairly casual outfit with beautiful, big coloured crystal earrings.

Oh, to comfortably afford some Erickson Beamon.

Strongly recommend that perfume too.

Seeing as I’ve been posting every day and I rarely have a day without constantly listening to music I’m going to start posting a link to tracks I’m really into. Enjoy!

It’s always nice when two things you like come together.

This editorial surprised me, but I like it.
