TFL - How to Wear the ALEXANDER MCQUEEN Black Leather Flounce Hem Mini Dress



This week's TFL features a dress, and there will be a new feature at 5pm called The Friday Night Steal (TFNS) where you can see how to get the look of The Friday Luxe but with affordable high street pieces.


I am deeply in love with this adorable McQueen leather dress, with its flouncy flirty hemline and cutaway front neckline.

GUCCI Gloria Shocking Pink Patent Leather High Heel Bootie



Clearly, I had to show you these. Perfectly pink patent booties. Obviously they will appeal to a pink loving girlie such as myself, but for a splash of colour even with a harder edge look these are extremely versatile. They could be worn with pretty dresses or even casual shorts as well as jeans and leggings.


They are also reduced on the official Gucci site from £560 to £280. Wear them like this with a mesh top Barbara Bui jumper and Gucci skinnies:

High Fashion Bride - MCQ BY ALEXANDER MCQUEEN White Sheer Block Booties



If you are a rock chick bride-to-be on a mission to find the ultimate in edgy statement footwear for your big day then I might just be about to make you a very happy girl indeed.

These statement heels from MCQ Alexander McQueen are not only sure to tick all the right boxes for a high fashion designer look, they are also on sale at Shopbop at half their original price. Perfect.


Even for someone who doesn't like white shoes, I have so admit they are divine.

BOTTEGA VENETA Green Leather Pumps With Bow



You may recognise these pretty bow pumps from Bottega Veneta which were first featured on Shoeniverse in butter yellow back in December of 2012. This new pampas green is adorable, plus they are on sale too, so I thought I'd show them off again. The bow front and pointed toe makes them one of my favourite all time bow courts.

They are truly stunning when worn with a simple olive shift dress.



Here are some alternative shift options that would also work with them:

ALEXANDER MCQUEEN Black Suede Knee High Boots



These breathtaking Alexander McQueen boots are, of course, very off-season for right now. In the UK we finally have some hot sunny weather (yay!) and I am not missing my knee high boots at the moment at all. However the seasons will have to change and when they do I would be an ecstatic lady to find myself owning a pair of these amazing boots.

Just look how amazing they look when worn with a simple black skirt, a statement blouse and an oversized envelope clutch:




They are just shy of £1000, but if you can make them yours then I salute you.

CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN Karina Shoe Boot In Black



I rather like Karina which is something of a surprise to me, as I'm not overly in love with black cage heels. I suppose my newly found love of black sandals has managed to extend to strappy shoe boots too. Who knew?

Oh... that heel! If this is your sort of style then you really are going to struggle to find a better example of everything that's right about shoots than Karina from the Maestro himself, Christian Louboutin.

This is how I'd wear these:

VALENTINO ROMA
White Top
DIESEL
Livier Slim Fit Jeans Blue
CHARLOTTE OLYMPIA
Multicolour Hollywood Magazine Clutch
VALENTINO
Black Rockstud Wide Bracelet

Perfect with these!

GUCCI Yulia Periwinkle Blue Crystal Studded Suede Highheel Sandal



Yulia in Perinwinkle Blue are one of my favourite Gucci heels for a very long time. They are cute and flirty, a little bit retro, but best of all they are really sparkly!


So very pretty and wearable. Pair with this for maximum impact and retro chic.
