The Roshe Run is one of Nike’s most unexpected hits. Bet they never figured the understated trainer would pick up the way it did. While their later color combos made a fluorescent mess out of a shoe that was supposed to keep it simple, the Quickstrike Metric’s all-black makeup and its geometry immediately set it apart from the pack. The sort of woman’s sneaker that will have men scrambling to find a pair that is a size-and-a-half larger for themselves.

Joseph Altuzarra created his brand of luxury women’s clothing in hopes of providing a sexier look for sophisticated women that allows them to carry themselves more confidently. The structured lines and form-fitting shape of the Joseph does exactly that. The defined waist along with the pocket and zipper placement gives an edgy look to the business-style jacket, which can easily be paired with either dress pants or a sleek pencil skirt.
This metallic gold structured blazer by Alexander McQueen features a sweet honeycomb scaled pattern and black trim along the lapels. A standout piece best paired with something tempered as opposed to, say, all-gold everything.

Since Common Projects debuted their line of women’s footwear in 2011 they’ve released nothing but gems! These slip-on suede ankle boots are among the nicest available for warmer days ahead.

Europe meets Asia in these dramatic stilettos by Victorian fashion house Vivienne Westwood. Constructed around a 5 1/2″ heel and 1 1/2″ platform of a curvaceous, satin rose print upper with leather laces as well as in the lining and sole, the Scarlet was engineered to break necks.
Wallets can be a tricky item to shop for. They need to have enough space but not be too bulky, its contents easily accessible but not so much so that everything falls out easily. I always seek out the functional and stylish but nothing seemed to catch my attention until I set my sights on the Liberty Travel Wallet by WANT les Essentiels de la Vie. The eight card slots, phone pocket, passport pocket and outer zipper make it the perfect travel wallet, whether on your way to a lunch meeting or another country. The caviar finish on the leather along with the gold and silver details add the perfect finish to an already fantastic accessory.

A pair of black leather booties is essential to every woman’s wardrobe. The Acne Cypress Contrast Boot has all the things a woman needs in an everyday shoe for spring, including a chunky wooden heel and a small platform for added comfort.

Miu Miu’s new collection of craquelé totes are a must-have in women’s handbags, this two-tone colorway being at the top of the list. The subtle touch of gold on the cracked black suede calf leather adds a vintage twist to a normally ordinary shape, giving it the originality that every woman looks for while shopping for handbags. The 95cm detachable strap and perfect balance of red, black and gold make it an excellent accessory for daytime and eveningwear.
The Dr. Martens quilted boot for women is kind of awesome! They previewed them at the PROJECT show last week and the ladies loved them. It reminds me of the ever so popular luxury Chanel bags with the quilted pattern. These hit shelves in the fall and are bound to keep the ladies looking fly.
