You now have the opportunity to buy both a pair of pumps and boots with 160 mm platform heels. You don’t need to worry about a winter night without a pair of 160 mm platform boots. Both summer and winter attire is resolved for you, thanks to the timeless and elegant design of Dolly heels.

Dolly Pump Alta and Booty Alta are designed by Maison Christian Louboutin. They are only available for a limited time. Despite all the unique details of these heels, they are not that expensive! For £875, you will be getting lots of glam and elegance.

YSL Vibrator: The second round of what you can buy from YSL

In my previous post, I covered the £55 cotton tote bag on YSL’s website. It’s a unique piece from Yves Saint Laurent, and the perfect item to buy just before Emily in Paris season 3!

Today I found something more eccentric: a YSL vibrator necklace. It’s a wearable sex toy – if you wear this at a social event, no one will realize you’re wearing a sex toy.

The necklace sex toy is a great incognito product to hide your desire in front of people’s faces, and they won’t know anything about it.

Let’s get a bit technical: YSL didn’t manufacture the sex toy, it was made by the Crave Vesper brand. YSL branded it. For me, it’s still an incredible product. Given that YSL has sold condoms in the past, this is a great next-step product.

What can you buy from YSL for under £100?

YSL is one of the most iconic French designers. It was founded in 1950 by Yves Saint Laurent and since that time, YSL has been an outstanding designer.

Unlike many other brands, YSL’s branding on their products is discreet which makes it a great brand for people who want to expo luxury without showing off.

Recently, I discovered a hidden part of the YSL website. This secret gem has tote bags under £100! I know this sounds crazy; you may ask, ‘how can a YSL bag be less than £100?’

It’s possible! I found one – The ‘Rive Droite’ collection on YSL’s website. It is hard to find it, but when you find it, you can have a YSL tote bag for £55!

Why do I blog about this? Because I bought it! The packaging was amazing, beyond your imagination, and the quality of the bag exceeded all my expectations.

Honestly, the YSL Rive Droite tote bag is worth the money!

Gucci x Adidas Umbrella, Sorry Sun Umbrella

Recently, Adidas and Gucci revealed a collection. You will find everything from high heels, to keyrings, to umbrellas – literally. This type of collaboration is expected; two brands reveal a collection together and boost their revenues. Nothing wrong with that.

However, the problem is when they sell an umbrella, it is not designed to be used in the rain. Gucci x Adidas Sun Umbrella is not intended to be used in the shower. If you try it, you will get wet for £870! I have seen many umbrellas from luxury brands, and all of them did their primary function – keeping you dry from the rain!

I understand that Gucci x Adidas wanted to introduce a product that can be used only under the sun and that’s fine on paper. However, when the product is released, the human brain’s basic function of heuristics kicks in (behavioural economics), and we recall rain and being dry. Unfortunately, this umbrella will not do this, and you will be paying a considerable price for it.

People started to mock this sun umbrella on social media, but I am sure people will buy it!

Here is the link to order it (if it is still available)

Christian Louboutin Chick Up 150 mm, The Platform Heels are Back!

The 150 mm platforms heels are back to Christian Louboutin, Chick Up 150 mm!

Christian Louboutin recently revealed the Doctor Bored collection, and I’ve already covered the brand’s other heels on my blog. It has been a long time since Louboutin released a pair of 150mm platform pumps. This is mainly due to customer demand and ongoing trends.

Now, Louboutin has quietly unveiled its platform heels collection. This is nothing unusual; after a crisis, there is always a need for higher heels. Now, let’s get ready to see some super high heels from Louboutin.

These heels are limited edition. So, they are likely to go for good if you’re not quick enough!

If you wish to buy a pair for £925!

Perfect home Heels From Christian Louboutin: Pin Up 100 mm and Pin Up Strass 100 mm

Christian Louboutin released two new mules, Pin Up 100 mm and Pin Up Strass 100 mm. They are both limited edition and designed by Doctor Bored. The fluffy mules are inspired by the pin-ups and offer an exquisite visual experience. An eye-catching feature of these heels is the pin-up print on the inner sole, and each pair offers a different print!

I am sure these mules are already collector’s items, and their owners will rarely wear them to keep the inner sole print alive for years.

If you haven’t bought them, they are still available to buy online!

I have shocking news! Christian Louboutin’s iconic no platform 130mm stiletto heels are back for a short time, Pinupina 130mm. They are sold out in UK online store (£845). I was expecting these heels to be sold out rapidly.

Pinupina 130mm is based on the iconic Merci Allen 130mm. However, this time, Louboutin collaborated with an artist, Doctor Bored. Pinupina features a unique design with a colourful print on the side, inspired by the pin-ups. The inner sole is also red. This is something new with the Louboutin. They started to offer red inner soles!

Tom Ford Beach Collection: Fucking Fabulous

We’re currently in a pandemic, and travelling isn’t easy. Just in case you’ve managed to get somewhere hot and next to the sea, you might consider making the occasion once in a lifetime with Tom Ford. Tom Ford recently revealed a beach collection for people who want to be stylish wherever they go.

Tom Ford’s beach collection is called ‘Fucking Fabulous.’ The collection comes with a nice beach towel and a beach tote bag. Both loudly feature the collection’s name, so be careful with any possible offence or negative reactions.

Both the towel and the tote bag are available in three striking colours: black, hot pink, and African violet. Try to avoid black because this colour will absorb the sun’s heat and burn you like nothing else!

Sadly, there are no shoes available to go with Tom Ford’s new collection. If you are brave enough, I would highly recommend Tom Ford’s Disco Ball platform sandals. They have enough surface to prevent sinking in the sand and complete your Tom Ford look with an outstanding style.

Tom Ford Flip-flops for $990

Many people say Apple products are overpriced and that people should not buy them, or alternatively, Apple should lower its prices. Personally, I disagree. The fashion industry is far more brutal than the tech industry. A prime example is provided by the iconic brand Tom Ford.

Recently, Tom Ford introduced flip-flops with an astonishing price tag of $990 (£790). The reader may be incredulous, so I have attached the product details. Nothing about this product seems high-tech or expensive to manufacture. If you do not have them, nothing will change in your life. They are simply a pair of high-quality flip-flops with a Tom Ford logo. This, supposedly, justifies the price tag.

My conclusion is that tech brands are not, in fact, helping people to ‘show off’ or flaunt their status to others. If a consumer owns a $50,000 Mac Pro desktop computer, for instance, no-one will ever know, provided he or she does not carry it with them everywhere. On the other hand, for decades, fashion products have been designed to foster self-esteem and nurture vanity, and they succeed very well in doing so. A pair of Tom Ford flip-flops can highlight your financial success more than a Mac Pro or an Apple Watch. Moreover, high-end fashion products are not seen as frequently as their tech counterparts. Thus, the scarcity effect applies and makes these Tom Ford flip-flops more noteworthy than a tech product.

In sum, the next time you say that Apple makes ‘expensive products’, think twice. Apple and other tech firms have spent years refining their technology, and they spend billions (for example) on research and development. Moreover, their manufacturing process is complex and expensive. Making a computer is not like making a pair of heels or flip-flops. Therefore, technology firms must charge high prices to cover their costs and invest in future products.

Lockdown Loungewear, Maison Ernest 14cm Mules by EngineeringInHeels

Maison Ernest is an iconic French shoe brand founded in 1904. Unlike Louboutin, it managed to stay under the radar for decades but focused on its unique style and on pushing the boundaries with high-quality craftsmanship, especially its ‘Favorite Rouge’ 14cm mules.

For nearly two months, the world has been under lockdown, and we live and work at home. Unfortunately, many fashion labels still haven’t managed to rebrand their collections as loungewear. They still offer holiday collections, and I really don’t know who is buying them.

Despite the lockdown, there is a new opportunity that is slowly emerging. Loungewear! We don’t want to wear the same things again and again. After some time, we find it boring and miss the good old days, when we could wear something different.

During this lockdown, then, there are some opportunities, especially for shoe brands! This could include redefining home slippers or mules. Recently, Engineering In Heels decided to get rid of her boring slippers and colour up her loungewear style, and she started to wear some outstanding mules from Maison Ernest – the 14cm, no-platform mules called ‘Favourite Rouge’.

Maison Ernest designed these extreme heels by drawing on their long design heritage and created something unique that can be worn by someone who’s willing to take the risk. And there’s no better time than the lockdown to give a try to your most extreme heels at home. Not only will you cheer yourself up, but you may also find yourself a new style combination.
