In September, Sephora announced an exciting collaboration and revealed the Disney Cinderella Collection by Sephora. Finally I was able to see the whole collection up close and personal during one of my many spontaneous (and dangerous!) trips to Sephora and I have to say its beautifully designed with a whimsical nature that truly captures Disney.
Having said that and coupled with the fact that I’ve been watching the tv show Once Upon a Time (yes I’m hooked!) I was inspired to modernize the leading ladies of Disney’s fashion sense. Check out what I came up with and let me know what you think!

Fashion is known for being adventurous, avant garde and sometimes just down right crazy! I’ve read mixed reviews surrounding Christian Loubtoutin’s “Alex Lion Paw” Pumps…However this hasn’t held back celebrities such as Blake Lively & Sarah Jessica Parker from snapping up the $4,995 furry pumps.
The pumps feature a light brown toe that segments into four protruding claw like “toes” with black jeweled talons as well as yellow pave crystals embellishing the stiletto heel and of course the signature Louboutin red soles.
Blake Lively rocked these pumps on the set of Gossip Girl while pairing them with a casual outfit whereas Sarah Jessica Parker was spotted with a “Little Red Ridding Hood” styled dress at a premiere for her recent movie “I Don’t Know How She Does It” back in August.
I think these pumps are rather quirky and forward thinking however personally I wouldn’t add these furry friends to my wardrobe ;) What do you think of these shoes? Let me know by commenting below!
Color Blocking is the combination of different solid colors that compliment one another to culminate in a dynamically chic ensemble. Are you brave enough to try it? Kate Winslet was and although color blocking is typically associated with the use of bold, vibrant colors the curvy actress stepped out in a more subtle toned (black, white & gray) figure hugging dress earlier this year when attending the red carpet for the Venice Film Festival.
Kate Winslet wearing Stella McCartney’s Octavia Dress priced at $1,600, on the red carpet at the 68th Venice Film Festival at Palazzo del Cinema on September 2, 2011 in Venice, Italy.
The Oscar winning actress looked absolutely stunning as she flaunted her curvy figure in a color blocked dress by Stella McCartney. The optical illusion dress was created with strategically placed black panels that transformed Kate’s figure into an hourglass proportion and gave the illusion of a slim, sleek physique.
Below are some tips on how to get your color block trend on as well as some affordable options that are guaranteed to flatter your figure whether you are wearing a dress, separates or want to add some flair to your outfit with some killer heels! I hope you enjoy the selections!
Subtle Yet High Contrasting
Too many bright colors together not your thing? That’s ok! I’ve got you covered, nothing says drama than the classic pairing of Black & White or the mixture of Nude & Black to offer a high contrasting statement. Combine your dress or separates with a sleek black/nude pair of heels to keep it simple, sophisticated and most importantly stylish.
Team up colors from the same family – think bright red with fuchsia or deep reds for a fiery statement, as well royal blue with turqoise. Combining these colors with black can also add more drama to your outfit.
With some bright, vivid combinations such as purple and orange or with a hint of yellow or lime green.
