The trump card!!

 ”My philosopy is simple: Jewellery should pay homage to the past while embracing the future”

When you hear the name Trump do you think style icon? Noooo you think formidable business man with a world famous toupe that appears to have a life of its own. If that toupe had audtioned for big brother I truly do think it would have gotten through!

However getting away from the toupe, there exists a lady of profound talent and beauty. That is, his daughter Ivanka Trump. She is businesswoman and beauty all rolled up in one. In 2007 Ivanka Trump launched her timeless jeweller heirloom design collection to resounding success. Her designs reflect her own admiration for the 1920s and 1960s glamour. Her collection is elegant and decadent aswell as inspiringly  distinctive now to be found on the global market.

 Ivanka Herself says  her dream is that ‘this Jewellery will appeal to women who have strong sense of themselves’ thus since finding a void in the market for highly design focused pieces Ivanka caters her business to independent women. Who, while they love receiving gifts of fine jewellery off their loved ones will also walk into her store and buy themselves a ring If they feel like it. That’s my kind of lady!

Ivanka Trump’s fine jewellery collection has now expanded globally to well over 40 retail locations since early 2010. Her jewellery can now be found in larger retail stores and independent ones. Pieces sold at no less quality but within price bracket that allows the regualr consumer to have a chance at snapping up these amazing designs.

Even Ms Oprah Winfrey herself is a fan of Ivanka’s Designs sporting her earrings on her show!

Ok so you may say to yourself that having a father like Donald Trump didn’t do any harm in establishing her business let alone her clientele. However one look at her designs and you can see the talent and drive that this inspiring young woman has. As the say a picture speaks a thousand  words…..

Burberry Menswear for Autumn/ Winter 2010

Love this collection from the wonderful Christopher Bailey, it coincides beautifully with the womenswear collection.. a lil’ bit of his and hers 🙂 love the military/ aviation feel to this look with lots of lovely lovely shearlings and a nice little twist on menswear with some shoulder embellishment – I wonder how many men would be brave enough to wear this look..

Venomous Villains

I absolutely adore the new product in MAC right now. They have just recently launched their “venomous villains” campaign which is a collaboration with Disney using their Villains from Disney classics as inspiration!

Malificent, Evil Queen, Cruella and Dr Facilier are the chosen characters and the product chosen to create these venomous looks were spot on! My favourite is the Evil Queen – she has the boldest look I reckon out of the four with strong purples for your eyes and clashing pillar box red for your lips – oh its amazing! Makes dressing up (yes I realise I’m 21 and shouldn’t still be playing dress up!) even more fun!!
