We all know the iconic dress code for Valentines Day.
Red and Pink shades are most likely to be worn on this day to celebrate and mark love.
All store windows and streets are covered with this hue and roses to mark it special.
Red can be quite a bold colour to wear but if worn correctly its beautiful.
Accessories need to be kept simple or you can tend to ruin the effect.
Opt for a beautiful elegant red dress short or long, or pretty pink for the princess in you.
Red and pink can also be paired together for a super girly look.
A cute Pink tutu and a crop top would make heads turn…
Those who are more rock chic can go for a sexy red lace bra under a leather vest, skinny jeans and killer heels.
Whatever look you choose make it simple yet elegant.
Finally for makeup id say there isn’t one shade of red lipstick to suit everyone, try different shades to find the perfect one.
Keep the rest of the face simple and fresh.
Red lips are bold, sexy and glamourous.
While it isn’t the perfect kissing appropriate colour, its got to be RED for valentines Day!
Hope you had a perfect Valentines Day Love birds.

Happy New year lovelies!
Thank you for all the love for 2014 and wish you all a 2015 blessed with love and happiness.
New years eve is as special as it gets and what more reason than to usher into it with some sparkle.
I got my glitter on for the evening with a red hot sequinned dress. Sparkly, fun and festive.
A red dress is definitely a bold fashion statement and perfect for a party if worn well.
You’re definitely going to turn a few heads.
It can create a look that is both classy and seductive.
Keeping your dress the focal point is important, so i would advise minimal accessories that add a little interest and contrast.
Wear the right shade of red for your skin tone as red can make you look washed out.
Pair the right colour of shoe always!
Shoes can transform the whole outfit. Safe choices would be Black patent, Gold, Bronze tones, Nude beige tones and Silver.
I of course broke into my Follies Spikes. Cloaked in Monsieur Louboutin’s iconic spikes, this feminine 120mm pump in ivory mini glitter and colombe metal is all you need to become an empress of the evening.
Choosing the right makeup for such a bold dress can be a challenge too.
Do not wear bright colourful eyeshadow that competes with your dress.
Either go for bold eye make up or a dated bold red lip but NOT both.
Understated natural colours will make you look polished and not overdone.
Neutral shades, browns, bronzy, smoky brown eyes or a pin up like defined eye with just winged eyeliner will look perfect.
I paired my red dress with a sparkly Jimmy Choo clutch, perfect for the party girl in me.
Hope you had a fashionable glitzy and glam start to the new year.
Keep it stylish,
Love Sonal xx

Pigalle Plato are the iconic ” Pigalle” revisited.
With an addition of a slender platform she maintains every bit of sultriness of her namesake.
This black leather patent version is a staple to have in your red sole collection.
At 120mm they are very comfortable to walk in all day or night since she has a 20mm platform making the pitch less steep.
While all the women in this world would love to own a pair of these sleek beauties, i do warn of some problems.
The toe box is quite narrow so if you have narrow feet like i do you will have no issues. The shoe is cut quite low all around that reveals a lot of foot cleavage.
For those who have more ‘meat ‘on their feet or a wider foot be careful as you may get the side overhang which won’t look pretty.
I know many women love this style, its simple, sexy and classic but don’t force it if it doesn’t work for you.
I have seen bad pictures of women trying to squish their feet in and the result often is bad.
Toe cleavage is fine but they shouldn’t look so squeezed as if there is lack of circulation.
A must have pair, sexy yet sophisticated polish your look with one of these and wait for the compliments!
Stay Beautiful xx
I’ve seen them online a couple of hundred times, fallen in love with every pair i saw, and wished id bought them at a recent trip to Dubai.
Lets all face it, nothing haunts us like the things we didn’t buy.
Anyway cut the story short and i received the most beautiful present, a pair from the latest collection 3 weeks ago.
Thoughts become things fashionistas…
A stunning rock stud, with pyramid studs that lend a cool “rock and roll” vibe to the caged straps of a pointy toe pump in lush leopard spotted calf hair.
If you know me well you will know i love studded anything.
I love how versatile these are, can be worn with almost any outfit and color.
They are not my normal 5 ” shoe, standing gorgeous at just a 2″ heel they scream glamorous and sexy!
So comfortable you don’t want to take them off.
I definitely see myself in these for a long time and i know i will be investing in a few more pairs.
I styled mine with a crisp white dress to bring out the leopard in the shoes.
They looked “purrfect” and i couldn’t be more happier.
Hope you all had a blessed weekend .
