I know that I am suffering from some serious winter blues and it's only November, however, I just came across these gorgeous Juliet Dunn kaftans and they have lifted my mood considerably.

Having a blog called Salon Kitty it was only a matter of time until I posted the puurrrrfect pair of shoes!
Israeli designer Kobi Levi first shoe designs were created during his high school days and back then they were made from cardboard. Nowadays all pairs are made by hand from high-quality materials.
The Miao design captures the grace and elegance in a cat's movement while stretching its limbs. Many actually see it as a dog. Either way, it seems so alive you expect it to jump in a giant leap straight into your lap. The playful tail and pink bell strap and personality and are oh so cute!
Interesting fact: Lady Gaga wore Kobi's Double Boot in her "Born this Way" music video!

Once upon a time (2010) in a land far away Zahia Dehar was a teenage prostitute embroiled in a scandal involving three French footballers who were alleged to have illegally paid the underage girl for sex.
Fast forward to 2012, and Zahia has entirely transformed her fortunes.
Trading on her notoriety as a sex symbol, Zahia Dehar reinvented herself as a lingerie designer, showing her first collection on the Paris catwalks in January earlier this year.
And last night, her status as a recognised figure in the fashion industry was cemented as the blonde former courtesan showcased her second collection of lingerie at Paris Couture Week.
[caption id="attachment_359" align="aligncenter" width="310"] Zahia Dehar Couture Collection[/caption]
Zahia, who modelled some of her designs herself at last night's show, appeared as a stylised Barbie doll to open the event before a stream of models took to the runway wearing a succession of ever more risque lingerie.
[caption id="attachment_360" align="aligncenter" width="310"] Zahia Dehar Couture Collection[/caption]
Entranced by her beauty, and the romantic notion of the history of the French courtesan he said she represented, a charmed Karl Lagerfeld photographed her debut look book himself!!!
With this ultimate seal of approval, the rest, as they say, is history. Zahia Dehar's metamorphosis from courtesan to catwalk queen of lingerie was complete.

I don't care what her background was, these garments are beautiful creations and I want them all!
And they all lived happily ever after...

I love that Cameos are now back in vogue, I remember my mother wearing a massive cameo ring back in the 80's and wanted it. The take for 2012 is bold and bright and I totally rate the laser cut perspex pendants above from Sarah Keyes that are a bargain at only £22.00 each! If you prefer a haute variety look no further than the Miu Miu and Tom Binns versions below.

Selfridges gears up to an historic summer of sports with the launch of its limited edition Urban Survival Backpack range, created by some of the world’s most esteemed brands.
No one doubts that amid the joy of hosting the Olympic Games, Londoners will also have to cope with a certain degree of chaos in the capital, including an extraordinary influx of tourists and the congested transport system.
Selfridges has decided to help lighten the load by commissioning a series of ten limited edition Urban Survival Backpacks from British and international brands including Mulberry, Vivienne Westwood and Paul Smith as well as 3.1 Philip Lim, Barbour and Nike. Each gives their interpretation of what it will take to survive London during the Olympics, complete with a full survival kit inside.
Anya Hindmarch’s kit fully embraces the games and comes complete with a pair of running shoes, an end-of-marathon foil blanket and even a trophy. Meanwhile, 3.1 Phillip Lim suggests staying away form the busy streets with Nars bath products and a DVD. Mulberry has created a limited edition backpack version of the covetable Alexa, filled with must-have Mulberry accessories such as an umbrella, Oyster Card holder and double-decker keyring.
The range of ten bags also includes Selfridges’ own Urban Survival Backpack and kit, featuring a bespoke Pantone 109 yellow Eastpak bag. Inside you’ll find a selection of Selfridges yellow products including an umbrella, a special edition Wallpaper City Guide, a bar of Kendal Mint cake and other practical and fun goodies.
The Urban Survival Backpacks are available from 21 June at Selfridges London’s Big British Shop on G and online.
