Dune London AW15

Dune previews are always highly anticipated for me, I don’t know whether that’s just the London girl in me but I think its because they always have really nice collections that are always conceptual and completely different to the last. This season had an apparent seventies influence with rounded saddle bags in rich chestnut and berry croc. The different shapes and textures were also reminiscent of the seventies. The deep auburn, navy and brown tones were suggestive of autumn and the beautiful nude hues played with the idea of bareness in an opulent season.

The collection has something for everyone, whether your a modern girl who loves colour blocking and in your face prints or a classic girl looking for a brushed saffiano leather tote. The beautiful velvet clutches embellished with brooches and feathers may speak to the flapper girl within, its a must see collection and you are likely to find a bag perfect for you.

The shoes very much mirror the bag trends, from casual ankle boots to embellished stilettos and mesh detailed pumps. A predominantly autumn palette however this collection spoke to the all-year-round open shoe wearing Dubai girl in me. There were wedges, platform stilettos and even clogs…I don’t think I could pull of the clogs but they would definitely look great on the right girl.

Plums and burgundies are my favourite autumn hues and I love my customised Zizzleblog croc bag, its small but has pockets for EVERYTHING and it comes in a variety of prints and textures, head to your nearest Dune store to find your perfect accessory!

Naturalizer

This Spring/Summer 2015, Naturalizer has captured the seasons trends while incorporating their signature N5 comfort-system. Rather then spending your nights looking great but feeling terrible, you can now feel great too and happily dance the night away. Even the high heels deliver flexibility, lightness,balance, cushioning and breathability in every step.

We loved the new collection and even left with a pair of gorgeous strappy silver sandals we spotted on the catwalk (see them below). They had a fashion show which showcased the Zanzibar, Retro Spirit and Santa Cruise Casuals key trends collections. We loved the wedges, high heels and a few of the gladiator sandals were nice too! Naturalizer has a great range of accessories and shoes for women which are comfortable and affordable starting from 299Dhs. You can see some of our favourites above!

High-Top Wedge

The only place I ever wear trainers to is the gym and when you never wear trainers they just look weird on you. I don’t really ever dress casually so I guess trainers don’t really go with anything I wear which is probably why but I have been trying for ages to find some that would suit me! Finally I found a trainer I love!! I fell in love with these ASH hightop wedges (£149) but because I know I only have a few different looks to go with them I couldn’t justify spending that much on them. Instead I got River Islands high-top wedge trainers, they’re so comfy and less then a 3rd of the price at £40!! They look great teamed with some skinny jeans or jeggings with a cute long top and blazer.

I noticed Beyonce wearing a pair in the Love On Top Video, obviously won’t be replicating that look especially not with the Isabel Marant price tag attached (£385) Alicia Keys and Kate Bosworth have also been spotted in a pair and they are reallly nice, these and the ASH ones are a lot nicer than mine with the leather trim but sometimes its neccesarry to rationalise…it sucks lol
