Evening Luxe - The 'Less Is More' Date Night Edit



The 'Less Is More' Date Night Edit is all about making sure that for a night out with a handsome young thing (or ondeed for painting the town crimson with your best girls) that you manage to look classy and not trashy.

The key to looking fabulous on a non-formal evening out is to not try too hard. Instead of squeezing yourself into the very tightest of bandage dresses and tottering in the heels that you know will pinch your toes, you will feel better and look infinitely more relaxed and confident by choosing simple pieces with statement accessories and a splash of colour. The predominant one in the collection is cherry red, but you can easily swap this out for emerald, sunshine yellow, cobalt blue or any other hue that flatters your skintone and makes you feel fabulous.

I've chosen a mix of black, silver and gold jewellery as well as a range of footwear pieces and everything from dresses to tees and funky jeans. Have fun. Life is way too short to have your best night out spoiled by wearing the wrong outfit. Oh and those McQueen red frame shades are to-die-for...

Effortless Style - The "Cool as a Cucumber" Edit



Today's post is dedicated to those days when you want the comfort of trackpants and trainers without compromising on style. Got a cold and can't handle the heels? Not a problem. The Shoeniverse Effortless Style Collection (aka the Cool as a Cucumber edit) has the very best slouch clothing featuring luxurious soft fabrics, easy to wear cuts and the ultimate selection of flat boots and shoes.

The collection features pieces from Topshop, ASOS, Michael Stars, Mango, Superdry, J Brand, Oak, Michael Kors, Alexander Wang, Current Elliott, Steve Madden, Lacoste, Toast, Dune, Markus Lupfer, Frye, Office, Alexander McQueen, Toms, Carvela and Valentino to name but a few. This is no ordinary style collection though. Whilst all of the pieces are comfortable, most could also be worn as workwear, and if you throw over a blazer or leather crop jacket you also have perfect weekend date night chic.

Take a look and see what takes your fancy...

LOOKING FORWARD TO SUMMER 2014 - Simple Classic Pieces for Your Wardrobe



We are being a little bit spoiled for choice with the latest McQueen pieces, including bright tailored classics like the red cropped pants and cobalt blue blazer as seen above. They form a part of the Shoenivers Capsule Collection for Summer 2014 which you can find here.

As well as a fair bit of McQueen, there are also bargains to be found too. I've included some extremely pretty little summer dresses, jewellery and other essentials, all of which are bright, breezy and utterly perfect for Summer 2014.

I'd love to know also, what's your go-to summer shoe style? I will be adding some collections for essential Summer footwear and wondered what the general consensus is. Do you live in flip flops or go crazy for wedges? Let me know in the comments please!
