Go…,Electrify the World!

This season turn heads and electrify every room or space you enter with your fashion, wear block colors and eye popping colors that are making waves on major runways but be sure to balance it out with lighter hues such as beige, grey, cream or navy.

The many styles of the lace boot.

I am a huge fan of lace boots, I totally heart them but I like to wear mostly ankle lace boots [ because of the heat], but they are really chic to wear and go with almost anything. People are skeptical about wearing boots here because they feel it is gives an over excessive look, but I say not necessarily; wear the right boot in the right way can make a load of difference. If you are worried about the heat, wear ankle boots and pick out a boot made from light materials be it leather or fabric and you are well on your way.

This last one is not so much like a boot but I love the lace up part and its really sexy.
