Love Hearts – Valentine’s Themed Fashion

Alviero Martini Heart Bag
Gorgeous Alviero Martini Heart Shaped Handbag

Now, I know the last post I wrote, was all about forgoing the traditional and trying something a little but different when it comes to Valentine’s Day. But, some people like the traditional, and that’s okay. When it comes to the Day of Love, what is wrong with sharing a little bit of that joy in the literal sense, with a great little red dress, or some pretty hearts anywhere and everywhere.

So, I’ve decided to let go of my slight cynical reaction to Valentine’s Day, and look through  Xwalker for the loveliest heart printed fashion and accessories I can find.

Fashion with a Heart

If you love a heart print, I highly recommend you check out Commes Des Garçons, as they have so many fantastic casual basics, with their signature super cute heart logo. I have found a few other cute pieces of apparel with a heart print, and I think I may be coming around to this whole literal Valentine’s Day ‘thing’. I mean how fantastic is that ‘Feminist’ sweater?

1. Heart Printed Jeans, Glamorous; 2. Feminist Heart Patch Crewneck Sweatshirt, Private Party; 3. Heart Tee, Sundry; 4. White Half Heart T-Shirt, Comme des Garçons Play.

 

Accessories are a great way to give a little nod to romance, with a few subtle heart-shaped touches to your outfit or home. I need that cushion….

Do you think you might give a playful nod to Valentine’s Day, with some cute little hearts? How do you celebrate the most romantic day of the year?

Top Ten Women’s Backpacks

Top Ten Backpacks - Alexander Wang Marti Backpack
Blow the budget with this Alexander Wang creation.

I’m not sure where I would be without my little backpack – I have dozens of bags, but it is my backpack that goes everywhere with me. It’s roomy enough for me to fit in all the rubbish I take with me – purse overflowing with old reciepts, gloces, random bits of makeup, the book or two I am currently reading, and treats for my neice that I hoard until I see her.

 

Not only is my backpack spacious, with plenty of handy pockets, it also is a hands free bag. I don’t have to hold on to it. It doesn’t slip off my shoulder, or from out under my arm and I can use both my hands for whatever I like – carrying a rug under each arm, snuggling armfuls of puppies…all the great things.

Backpacks are not just functional. The humble backpack has had a big of a revamp over the past few years, and now they are one the most stylish bags you can own, the functionality is just an added bonus.  Every woman and girl needs a backpack.

Top Ten Women’s Backpacks

So, to give you guys some serious backpack inspiration, I have compiled a list of the top ten backpacks that are available through Xwalker.

Top Ten Backpacks - 10 to 6.png
10. Double Flap Color Block Eco Leather Backpack, Love Moschino; 9. Palazia Pearl Gray Suede and Leather Small Backpack, Le Parmentier; 8. Biker Wavy Spot Printed Backpack, Marc Jacobs; 7. Off White Large Leather Backpack, Kara; 6. Watson Lane Hartley Nylon Backpack, Kate Spade New York.

 

Top Ten Backpacks - 5 to 3
5. Double Pocket Faux-Fur Backpack, Sunset & Spring; 4. Star Gazer Avery Backpack, Foley and Corinna; 3. Downtown Kane Mini Metallic Backpack, State.
Top Ten Backpacks - 2 to 1
2. Dakota Backpack, Dagne Dover; 1. Dina Mesh Backpack, Kendall and Kylie.

I chose those backpacks as my top two, as I love that they have a sporty style, but are stull chic, cool and contemporary. That’s totally my own personal style…I am a sports luxe kinda girl. But, I encourage you to have a browse through the hundreds of backpacks available through Xwalker, to find one that matches your own personal style. Have fun.

Trending: Winter White

Trending Winter White - La Maison Talulah Midi Dress
La Maison Talulah Eyelet Midi Dress.

Another weekend has went by, and with it another Award ceremony, this time the 2018 Grammy’s. It was probably no surprise that Bruno Mars left with an armful of awards, but something that did grab my attention was the white roses that many of the women walking the red carpet, had pinned onto their glamorous dresses or sharp tailoring. The white roses were worn in solidarity of the Time’s Up and #MeToo movement, a big change from the black gowns women wore at the Golden Globes several weeks ago.

Recording artist Kesha – herself a victim of sexual abuse within the enterainment industry – went one step further, delivering an emotional performance of her song ‘Praying’. Her performance was particularly relevant as it is all about coming through adversity, and moving on from those that hurt you with forgiveness. She was joined onstage by the likes of Cyndi Lauper, Bebe Rexha, Camila Cabello, Julia Michaels, and Andra Day, all of which looked angellic in head-to-toe white ensembles.

After last weekend’s Grammy ceremony, winter white is definitely a trending shade. If you want some stunning white pieces to add to your wardrobe, I have found some beauties that are available through the Xwalker website.

Floral Prints - Brie Larson in Gucci

Fantastic Florals

Leaving behing the black gowns that dominated on the Golden Globes red carpet a few weeks ago, it was floral prints were strongly represented at the 2018 SAG Awards  on Sunday evening, with many of Hollywood’s finest leading ladies, opting for femine, floral gowns. Vanessa Kirby wore a gorgeous blush gown with floral embroidery by Valentino, and Gina Rodriguez looked fantastic in a beaded floral gown with corsetted top.

Oscar winner Brie Larson wore my favourite look of the night, mixing the shimmer trend with florals, in a stunning sequin gown by Gucci. She kept her hair and make up, fresh and youthful, and accessories simple, which worked perfectly with the heavily embellished dress.

Thanks to Brie Larson – and  some of the other beautiful women that walked the SAG read carpet  – I have fallen in love with floral prints once again. They are pretty, flirty and feminine, but can be edgy too, when teamed with black leather and biker boots. Plus, in a pretty miserable January (well it is where I am right now), it is a great way to add a little bit of colour and brightness to your life.

I could certainly do with Spring coming a little bit a little bit early – is it just me, or does it seem like January has lasted forever? So, I have had a good browse through the Xwalker website, and found some great pieces that are sure to give you serious floral inspiration.

I can’t wait to add some to my wardrobe. Their bold brightness are sure to get me through the rest of January…I hope.

Fabulous Glitzy Shoes from NA-KD for only $48

It is the most glamorous time of the year. Yes, it is party season, which for many of us, means being more social in the space of a couple of weeks, than they are for the rest of the year combined. Most of the time throughout December, I would rather me in a onsie, watching terrible Christmas movies. So, when the social events start filling up the calender in December, I don’t want to spend a lot of  money on those glamorous party essentials. I want party clothes, shoes and accessories that dont break the bank, but still look good, and would be versatile enough to work for other occasions.

So, in my previous browsings of Xwalker, I have found some wonderful party dresses for under $150. Now I have been on the hunt for party handbags and shoes, for under $100, and I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of choice.
