Shade Up with Tilda Sunglasses from the House of Harlow 1960

Nicole Richie's designs in the House Harlow are simply spectacular! She really has the vision and the taste about what will appeal to women of different ages. Take for example her sunglasses offerings. The cat-eye Chelsea sunglasses were among the most popular in her collection because of the excellent shape of its frame. But the House of Harlow 1960 has some new offerings included in its Spring 2012 collection! Like the Tilda Sunglasses!

The Tilda Sunglasses looks like the aviator glasses usually worn by the likes of Vanessa Hudgens and even Britney Spears at times. It features acetate and metal frame in gold color and has 100 percent UV protection lenses.

Tilda Sunglasses are very stylish and would suit fair and tan coloring. However, for those who don't like gold-colored frame, there's another option, Tilda Sunglasses in gunmetal.

Take note a pair costs $148 which is not too bad I think.

Sparkle in Maison Martin Margiela Gold Ankle Boot

Ankle boots are a staple in every woman's wardrobe. It's a style that never goes out of style no matter what the season. But since the drab Fall Season is coming around, you ladies could use something eye-catching, probably a sparkly boot like the Maison Martin Margiela Gold Ankle Boot!

This boot is made of soft-peachy beige material all over it. It has a rounded and kind of chunky heel, which might not appeal to many. But this rounded heel provides excellent balance so there's no fear of tripping even on slippery pavements. It has a zip at the back that will make putting on and taking off really easy.

Now, the highlight of the Maison Martin Margiela Gold Ankle Boot is the glitter design on top of the boot! Women who like to be the center of attention will definitely love this! It's not for the shy or retiring personality.

But those who desire the Maison Martin Margiela Gold Ankle Boot need to be willing to shell out $500 for  a pair. So, is it attractive enough for you to spend that much money?
