Shackled Soles

In case you've been living under a rock, the shackled-shoe trend is here to stay. These days, celebs are putting their best fetish-foot forward in pumps that have edgy chain detailing. The intense heels complement a smokin' hot dress and add bite to a floaty frock. Shop the steals 'n' splurges below to get the look. (We threw in a pair of chained flats for our comfort-loving friends.)

Camilla Belle's Subtly Sexy Look

Whitney Contemporaries Art Party and Auction was presented by BCBG Max Azria. Like last year, many actresses showed off their curves in the company's infamous Hervé Léger bandage dresses. But Camilla Belle was the sexiest guest of all, thank to her understated display of skin. Flirty ruffles cascaded down her Max Azria dress, ending in a slight slit that showed off legs that would leave anyone green with envy. The gray pumps and matching silver smoky eye added a bit of mystery to the soft, sensual look

Monica Rose Blog: Double Trouble in Miami

I recently prepped wardrobe for Khloe and Kourtney's promos for their new reality show on E! I can't wait to watch their new show which airs in August! Here is a sneak peak of one scene, where the girls arrive to Miami on a private jet. How fab do the girls look? Unfortunately I was not able to go to Miami for the shoot. I sent Khloe and Kourtney a big box of wardrobe each and prepped it for each scene. It was so much fun! We were texting back and forth on each look. The theme was Glam Chic! I will keep you posted with more behind the scene pictures as they come.

Kourtney K's Blog: The Best Father's Day Gift....

The best gift I have ever given on Father’s Day is probably making my famous Armenian breakfast called Beeshee. My grandmother on my dad’s side taught me how to make it and I am the only person in our family who knows how. You have to make it the night before, let the dough rise, and then prepare it in the morning, which Khloe always does. So we do it together as a team effort haha. Because it is a bit of a process, we only make it on special occasions, and every year for Father’s Day, my dad would ask us to make him Beeshee…and of course we always did. It is so delicious and fattening! It’s basically like a thin, crispy fried pancake that you pour tons of sugar on. My Dad always loved to lay out by the pool, so after Beeshee we would all put on swimsuits (yes, right after we were just fattened up lol!) and go lay around by the pool, blast music and relax. What I wouldn’t do to have those days back.

Bruce is a huge golf fanatic! Anything we get him golf related, he loves. Khloe, Kim and I got him a weekend of golf training with a special golf trainer once, and that was probably the best gift we have ever given him. I think this year we will make beeshee and lay out by the pool while Bruce golfs. Just kidding Bruce, this is your day, we can do whatever you want.

And I am not giving up my beeshee recipe just yet…many of you have asked, but it’s a family secret. :)

Handbag ~ Pick of the Day: Louis Vuitton Epi Alma

The Alma comes in a classic shape, is light-weight, and available in an array of colors from the Epi line. Cassis, Ivoire, Black, Red, and Grenade are the colors available in the Louis Vuitton Epi Alma, the textured hand-held carryall which is a staple of the house. The bag is named after the Place de l’Alma, the grand Paris square at the end of Avenue Montaigne. The Alma features textured leather and is trimmed with smooth leather. The inside is lined with Alcantara lining (which is precisely what Vlad goes gaga over in his favorite luxury cars). Buy through eLuxury for $1,240.

Handbag ~ Pick of the Day: Hermes Kelly Long Wallet

Hermes Kelly Long Wallet (officially: Money Holder) in orange matte alligator is the quintessential combination of skin and tone from the House of Hermes. Megs had been contemplating to go exotic with Hermes for a while - when our Hermes SA contacted us and we learned about this beauty’s immediate availability, there was not much hesitation. The wallet is made from matte Mississippi alligator and dyed in Hermes’ signature orange color. The gator version is denoted by the small square printed by the Hermes logo. This exotic skin is mainly reserved for Hermes’ smaller leather goods, larger bags are very rare in alligator.

This Kelly Long variety also comes in other leathers. It is available in mysore goatskin, box calf and epsom calfskin in a broad variety of colors. Prices for the regular leather versions range around $2,350. Needless to say, this exotic version is a wee bit more expensive. Inquire with your local Hermes boutique if interested.

D.S Pick of the Day: Christian Louboutin Stretch Platform Over-the-Knee Boot

This boot is just beyond sexy. The color is rich and luxurious. I love the platform, and get a look at that amazing 6 3/10-inch heel! They just keep getting higher and higher! These boots will be amazing with dresses or skirts. They may be too tight to get on over jeans. But try pairing them with creams and taupes, which will look great with the nutmeg hue.

D.S Pick of the Day: Sergio Rossi Suede Pump

It is also available in a metallic leather with silk insets in a chevron pattern. It’s a nice shoe. But in purple suede, it is just beyond chic! I like how the monochromatic suede really highlights the chevron pattern with just the touch of what looks like black leather trim. And the stiletto heel really ups the sexy factor of this shoe.

This pump will be super easy to pair. Jeans, skirts, dresses, business suits…they’ll all work beautifully. But I’m picturing these pumps with opaque black tights and a hot black mini dress. It will be such a chic look, and will really draw the eye to the shoe!
