Every now and then you come across something or someone that grabs your attention. Such is the case with designer Loretta of Serene Order. I love her contemporary but edgy and fun collection. She recently was granted access to her own space on ASOS marketplace. Here's what she had to say about her recent addition as a boutique on ASOS:

What's Not To Love?

If you're getting bored of the same old, same old internet shopping experience check out Asos Marketplace. It has some hot emerging designer talent and it's like shopping in one big jumble sale with everything in there from breaking talent to vintage pieces. On top of that there are some rather nice multi-brand boutiques.
So Serene has been on asos Marketplace for a couple of months now and amongst it's hoard of treasures are some uber glam Jon & Joe dresses. Our favourite is the double layer strapless bodycon dress.

Even better, they take orders in your size so you never have the frustration of your size being out of stock. This little treasure trove has something for everyone and we just love it. From the way all the shoots have to be taken outside to the way the love quota keeps you posted on the labels you lust after - it really is like a stroll down Camden Market or Portobello Road (without the rain . . .)

My favorites from her shop...check her out and be sure to tell her Lisa Couture sent you!Take a peak here at what So Serene


Lots of diy inspiration: get busy with your buttons, beads and baubles!

So sick:

CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN.....outdoes himself!

You could walk a mile in Christian Louboutin’s ruby-red soles—and you’d better, for the price you pay—but his latest creation defies musculo-ambulatory possibilities. The limb-lengthening wizardry of Louboutin shoes have earned them an Oz-like acclaim among celebrities.

Now Louboutin has decided to put his good name toward a good cause, joining forces with the English National Ballet to produce a one-off design inspired by classical dance, a ballet slipper with a stiletto heel. Swathed in flesh-colored silk and Swarovski crystals, the Louboutins’ crowning glory are eight-inch heels (topping the brand’s tallest stiletto by a good two inches) that position the feet at near-vertical angles, executable only by professional ballerinas.

The ballet stilettos were commissioned as part of a silent auction to benefit the English National Ballet, a showcase that also includes exclusive pieces from Erdem and Agent Provocateur. We’ve seen our fair share of fantastical footwear over the years—Alexander McQueen’s Armadillo booties or Lady Gaga busting out those crazy Noritakas, along with a couple of tendons, surely—but even their eccentric ergonomics pale in comparison to this.

Well I'm not sure what to make of them as I definitely couldn't wear them, but to each his own!

Of course they look good on Beyonce, but then again EVERYTHING looks good on her!

SHOE SLAVE: CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN with one of his signature red soles entote!

Until we meet again....stay--oh-so-fab and p.s- to all you divas after Beyonce Bodysuits, Nicki Minaj catsuits, you can have them made to your measurements but remember: TIME+TALENT+LABOR=MONEY!!! CELEBRITY fashion costs!!! Surely, you can't expect to pay Primark prices for Couture clothing!

Love ya lots,
Lisa Couture!
