Men's Shoes get the Christian Louboutin Treatment

I came across these extremely cool Men's Spring 2010 studded Christian Louboutin shoes on Apparently Pharrell Williams was the first celebrity to get his hands on a few pairs, and so spreads an awesome studded trend.
The very elegant Freddy Flats are made of black patent leather, covered in a barrage of studs, and quite frankly I want a pair too.

Redhead BARBIE by Christian Louboutin

Barbie has never looked better, and not least of all because she's now a Redhead!
Thanks to a third collaboration with uber shoe designer Christian Louboutin, 'Anemone' Barbie is a limited edition doll dressed in show-stopping chartreuse and purple with tiny purple 'Anemone' shoes. She enviously comes along with 3 other red-soled Louboutins: Madeleine mules, Lady Claude pumps and Spartenvol sandals, each with their own shoe boxes and red bags. Oh, and she also comes with a copy of Christian and Barbie's travel journal. Necessary? No. Fabulous? Definitely.

Cheers to Mr. Louboutin and Barbie for showing the world the allure of a redhead in red-soled shoes! And if I don't own a pair of Louboutins, then my Barbie might as well!
Available exclusively through Net-A-Porter


Much as I tried, I simply could not steer clear of a HOBBS shop during my recent visit to London. Whether stomping the City grounds or the cobblestoned streets of Cambridge and Windsor, HOBBS inevitably appeared (there are loads) and beckoned me with its navy and white polka dots and red accents. I have long been a fan of the British chain shop, and though admittedly its regular customer is more classic-minded, HOBBS has successfully reached out to a slightly younger demographic thanks to its new contemporary NW3 line, and luxury-focused Limited Edition collection.

What I'm really excited about though is HOBBS' new Spring shoe collection which is filled with some must-have gorgeous suede and leather heels. One style in particular I have fallen head over heels in love with: Limited Edition L.E. Austell Brogue tassled heels in tan and gold.
I shall save up.....

RedPoppy dresses models at the Project Runway Season 7 Finale!!

For all you Project Runway fans, i can now reveal that I had the privilege of dressing Mila's models backstage at the final show in Bryant Park back in September.
De-linting and smarting up Seth Aaron before he showed his collection wasn't bad either:) Click on the episode link below and check for me at the 10:30 and 11.05 mark...
