I’m all about adding a bit of an edge to my look so I am always drawn to spiked accessories. While not wanting to be injured by my own stiletto I absolutely love this touch of punk that’s not just edgy but also incredibly chic! A little bit of heavy metal on your bags an shoes might be exactly what you need to transform your look from classic to modern. These spiked accessories have been around for many seasons now and won’t be going anywhere any time soon, and while the more hardcore interpretations are more likely to find their way into Kate Moss’s wardrobe than Kate Middleton’s I think there’s plenty of room for some rock stud embellishments for all of us. Two of my very favorite design houses that have been embracing this trend for seasons now, Christian Louboutin and Valentino have taken the classic punk staples and translated them to high fashion fabulous. Check out some of my favorite spiked accessories that will certainly add a bit of rock star edge while holding down some uptown chic to your look!

So, last week I talked about hearts but this week I need to address the fabulosity that are star prints. There’s definitely been a bit of galactic inspiration both in women’s fashion and, of course kidswear lately. As I sit here my little Max is singling twinkle twinkle little star, holding a wand and dressed in head to toe stars down to his wellie boots and I want to join the star print party. There’s a beautiful whimsy to stars and they walks the line of being both cool and sweet. The great pattern in the sky always serves as inspiration both in life and art so it’s no surprise that star prints should emerge as a favorite among that fashion set. The Saint Laurent collections have been full of star prints in recent season so I’m thinking it might be time to incorporate it into my wardrobe too. So as my little one points up in to the sky shouting “Star! Star!” I feel the urge to find some printed pieces myself. Bags, shoes, clothes – these star prints are always fabulous and it’s time to add some twinkle to my look.
