Giuseppe Zanotti Diamanté Skull Canvas Tote The skull trend goes on, this time on this Diamanté Skull Canvas Tote by Giuseppe Zanotti. It’s made of dark green canvas, with a camouflage pattern lurking behind the fringe-trimmed diamanté skull, and dark brown leather, red stitching, and silvertone hardware studs along the bottom to finish up the ‘tough glamour’ vibe. It also has an exposed zip-top closure, a designer-embossed padlock and key hanging off one side, and a silk/twill lining. A stylish blend between a tote bag and a messenger bag for $1,560. I am not recommending this for the wannabe bag-hags because they’ll say, “yeh toh canvas ka hai.” The key word here is fashionistas with “Esoteric” tastes!
Purple is haute! I bought a pair of purple pumps from Tod’s last fall for my lady and she looooved it. These gorgeous heeled sandals by Alberta Ferretti are simply alluring. It gives you a subtle pop of color while it’s muted shade allows for versatility with a wide range of outfits. Ferretti’s sexy monochromatic heeled sandals have a transparent net throughout and is beautifully adorned with crinoline and leather accents. These could easily be paired with a dress, skirt, a work suit and even jeans. Price: $980.
CAUTION: I would recommend you buy this heels abroad because the Ferretti licensee here are TSG and I have heard from insiders that the ‘sisters’ have the habit of wearing everything in their store and then putting them back on the racks for selling. Now you wouldn’t shell out $1000 on heels that had already been worn. Would you?
