{ Trend love: the new gladiator }

These shoes really don't need an introduction - you've probably come across them already as they're popping up all over the internet and are most likely at a store near you (if you're in the right hemisphere). I think the Givenchy-inspired lace up wedge is an acquired taste but, if you can pull them off, they would look perfect for spring with a mini or cigarette pants.

And the more practical alternative:

I've also been admiring the pieces Mink Pink have been churning out. The floral 90's dresses and ripped/studded bodycon dresses are sooner or later going to find themselves in my wardrobe. Not only are they very versatile and could be dressed up or down, but they could be easily worn all year round with the right layering.
