Fendi Furiosa

Fendi Furosia

Woo! There’s a name – Fendi Furiosa. Despite such a strong name, the fragrance is very feminine – it’s powerful with some big blossomy notes in the form of gardena and jasmine absolute, and the centrepiece, the Violaciocca flower (scented stocks). Like the name suggests, Fendi Furiosa isn’t for wallflowers! It’s unapologetically sexy and meant to be so – down-notes of woods and amber ensure a base that’s enveloping and heady.

The bottle is such a mercurial design; basically an ‘animal’ print that could be anything from a butterfly wing or leopard spots, to alligator markings or even, I guess a giraffe print. I think it is so, so clever. Fendi Furiosa is all about evenings – I wouldn’t mark it for myself as a day fragrance, but as the last part of a glamorous going-out ritual, it’s spot on. As you might expect, it’s rather a ‘luxury’ price, too! You can find it at Harrods for £63.50.

Sturdy-meets-Sexy: LK Bennett’s Leona Boots

LK Bennett Leona Pull Up Leather Boot

I’ve been busy shooting fashion features and videos, so do excuse the sudden torrent of style posts! I will attempt to balance them with plenty of beauty, because I know how you get withdrawal symptoms… These boots are too good not to talk about, though, and I have an inkling that they will sell very well and so I’m getting in there (relatively) early. The “Leona” boots are from the new season collection at LK Bennett; sturdy, beautifully-made and surprisingly comfortable. I did the “Ruth Crilly Heel Test”© in them and managed to survive the following: three brisk strolls totalling approximately 1 mile, a section of rubbled, pot-holed track and about twenty seconds of one of those ridiculous run-walks that you do when you’re about to miss the bus. Overall: GOOD. Considering that they look reasonably high and sexy, you could easily tackle day-to-day tasks in these – you’re not going to be clinging to the escalator handrail or keeling over on the tube.

I first spotted these boots because they looked very similar to a Chloe pair that I saw a year or so ago. I tried the Chloe ones on and then took them off and deliberated; by the time I returned to buy them, they had gone. LK Bennett’s Leona boots are nearly half the price, they are easier to walk in and they have the same strappy/buckled styling that I loved so much on the Chloe versions. They are just on the cusp of comfortable-meets-sexy; enough height to make you feel all stompy and powerful, but enough chunkiness in the heel to keep you stable when you’re striding about town. You can find the Leonas at LK Bennett here.
