Merrell Chameleon Arc – Lightweight hiking shoes for women

The Merrell Chameleon Arcis a great all round lightweight walking and hiking shoe for women. Based on a trainer style, the weight is kept to an absolute minimum using lightweight breathable mesh uppers, made more robust with nubuck and pig suede panels. One of the most attractive shoes, Merrell have ensured that the styling is attractive, with feminine colours and a slim line design.

The Merrell Chameleon Arc is one of the bestselling brands of Merrell shoes for women, in part because of the attractive lightweight design, however by far the biggest plus is the comfort that the shoes offer. Walking shoes are renowned for requiring a good couple of weeks to break in, which means wearing them only for short excursions or around the house. By using modern materials these trainers offer comfort straight out of the box.  Just order them online, wait for delivery, and your feet will avoid any painful blisters. The shoes wrap around the foot giving a really snug fit, feeling secure without feeling restrictive.

Merrell have realised that the female foot is different.  Many shoe manufacturers take an average foot shape and scale down their shoes, offering the same model and design in smaller sizes for women. However women’s feet are narrower with a shorter big toe and unisex models rarely fit as well as they should. By wearing shoes which are not designed specifically for women, the feet can slide, the heel is not held securely and blisters are a common problem.

The QForm fit in the Merrell Chameleon Arc cradles the foot and is perfect for long term comfort, giving great support to the arches of the feet.  Under the feet, Merrell use the same Air Cushion system as their men’s shoes to provide excellent shock absorption, whilst increasing stability, especially helpful over broken and uneven terrain.  An In-Board™ compression moulded EVA Footframe keeps the foot well supported, and an anatomically moulded footbed feels reallycomfortable underfoot.

The problem with many walking shoe styles is traction. Being required to perform in the wet and dry, over hard packed trails and soft grass and mud, they rarely offer universally good grip or get worn down reallyeasily on hard surfaces. Getting the correct balance of traction and durability can be difficult, and will either see your feet slipping or the shoes wearing down quickly. By using High quality Vibram Rubber with 4mm lugs Merrell shoes and boots have great bite on soft ground, whilst being robust enough to cope with hard packed earth and will have a good long lifespan.

The Chameleon Arc is one of the best Merrell Gore-Tex shoes for women. Totally waterproof, with highly breathable uppers they allow steam to escape to keep the feet totally dry, and you don’t have to worry where you are putting your feet.

Overall the Merrell Chameleon Arc is an excellent all round walking and hiking shoe sold in trainer and mid-boot styles, with a great selection of models and colours available.

New to Sydney? 5 Top Places to Grab Some Great Bargains

This article is designed to help you grab some fantastic bargains when you visit Sydney, Australia.

1. Direct Factory Outlets (DFO)

One of the favourite places for Sydney-siders to get bargains and fashion highs. It is located in Homebush (next to Sydney Olympic Park). Trading hours are from 10AM to 6PM daily. The best time to visit DFO is during the week when there is plenty of parking within the complex. It is a good idea to try to avoid shopping at DFO on the weekends as it gets very crowded and parking is quite difficult to source during those periods.

What you will find at DFO:


  • Lingerie (Bendon, Elle MacPherson and etc)
  • Sporting apparel (Converse, Puma and etc)
  • Fashion chain stores (French Connection, Witchery, Marcs and etc)
  • Home wares (Royal Doulton, Sheridan and etc)
  • Surf brands (Billabong, QuickSilver)
  • Kids
  • Shoes (Nine West, Windsor Smith, Wanted and etc)

2. Red Yard Entertainment Centre (100 Parramatta Road Auburn)


Auburn seems like miles away especially for those who live across the bridge or even those from the Eastern Suburbs. However, it is full of treasures and gems for those die-hard bargainistas. 100 Parramatta Road is a place to go to if you are after anything to do with Sports and the easiest way of getting there is by car via the M4 motorway and exit at Silverwater Road.

This part of Auburn has everything to offer – from apparel to footwear to casual wear and sporting equipment. There’s plenty of parking and the following outlets are located within the complex:


  • Rebel Sports Discount Outlet
  • SportsCo
  • Kathmandu
  • Bendon, Berlei and Bonds Outlet
  • Pumpkin Patch
  • Freddy’s Fishing World


The bargains do not just stop inside the Red Yard Entertainment Centre. If you are keen for more gems, some 100 steps will bring you to the following places:


  • Adidas Factory Outlet – directly across Parramatta Road
  • Nike Factory Outlet – 126 Parramatta Road, which is 2 minutes walk towards the West, from Adidas


These shops often have juicy reductions. For example, Nike often offers specials such as buy one pair of footwear and get the 2nd pair at 50% off.

3. Birkenhead Point

Beautiful Birkenhead Point

This has to be the most picturesque factory outlet ever! Located at the entrance of Iron Cove Bay and situated adjacent to Parramatta River, this is probably one of the few malls that you can get to via boat! Birkenhead Point is almost the same as DFO but a classier version. Designer labels such as Burberry and Allannah Hill have their outlet stores located within this shopping haven. It is worth setting aside a day to shop.

4. Peter’s of Kensington

Peter’s, Peter’s, Peter’s. The beauty of with Peter’s of Kensington is that they are conveniently located online and at 57 Anzac Parade in Kensington, this store is the place to go to if you are after good quality pots, pans, home wares, bathroom accessories, cutlery, home ware and the list goes on. This is the place to go to for quality home wares such as Circulon and Scanpan.Products are often at least 50% cheaper than your major department stores. If you shop during Peter’s sale period, you can find bargains up to 70% off!

5. Market City

Located in the hub of Sydney’s Chinatown, Market City is a great place for finding bargains from stores such as Esprit, Mambo, Cue,Marcs and etc. The best days to visit Market City will be between Thursday to Sunday as Paddy’s market trades during those days. The shops within the Market City building are all fixed price shops. However, some bargaining can happen at Paddy’s (located in the basement of Market City). Most people come here for non-brand name Ugg boots, sheep skin and tonnes of other souvenirs. A fresh fruits and vegetables market is also conveniently located within Paddy’s.

London Fashion Week For Autumn/winter 2010

frumpy to funky’s London based Personal Stylist, Karen Grace, comments on a few of the catwalk shows at London Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2010

PROPHETIK “Southern Shores” catwalk show.Designer JEFF GARNER

Showing at Vauxhall Fashion Scout 19Feb10

Tennessee based Prophetik kicked off the LFW catwalk shows at Vauxhall Fashion Scout, Freemason’s Hall, Covent Garden.  And what a kick off!!!

At the beginning we are lulled in to thinking of a carefree southern country theme when violinist Anna Cwad starts playing toe tapping music, with ex-Paramore Jason Bynum joining her on guitar. Then the band Man Raze shatters this illusion with their fusion of punk and pop rock. Not surprising as their drummer is ex-Sex Pistols Paul Cook and their vocals/lead guitar is ex-Def Leppard Phil Collen. And let’s not forget their bass guitarist Simon Laffy from Brit glam rock act band Girl.

With Man Raze raising the tempo, the show began for ethical designer Jeff Garner’s  A/W10 collection titled “Southern Shores”. His inspiration came from the American Civil War and sees hope and romance alongside strife and uncertainty.

Main colour palette in true Civil War colours were blues, greys with a touch of red.

The menswear saw layering and serious looking ¾ length coats, waistcoats, vintage buttons, riding boots and peace silk neckties.

For the women, the designs ranged from jodhpurs, ripped leggings, military jackets and capes to full on Little House on the Prairie style dresses. In-between were mini dresses and long flowing dresses both teamed with flat heeled riding boots.

At the end of the show, the music mellowed as Jeff Garner appeared looking the part of the Southern gent taking a stroll with his Southern belle in her striking long red velvet bustier dress.

Garner’s collection is proof that no fashion look has to be harmed in the making of ethical clothing.

Prophetik is a sustainable men’s and womenswear label using environmentally friendly materials such as organic cottons, hemp, flax, Greenspun (recycled bottles) and organic pigment dyes. One of their signature dresses “the Elle” is made from silk and organic cotton that elephants have painted in collaboration with the AEACP (Asian Elephant Art Conservation Project), which helps to raise funds for an elephant sanctuary in Thailand.”


presenting at the Portico Rooms, Somerset House 19Feb10

The stage for Orla Kiely’s presentation was 2 impressive make shift rooms decorated in the 60′s style with brown and beige designed Orla Kiely wallpaper in the living room and dark & light blue in the bedroom. The furniture was 60′s vintage and a modern retro looking TV showed the collection on screen. Models sat or stood in above the knee dresses and skirts teamed with shoes and mid calf navy socks.

Patterns for the wallpaper and dresses were inspired by Ivon Hutchins’s abstract art and the photography of Erwin Olaf, and captured the essence of falling autumn leaves.

Main colour palette was autumnal – creams instead of whites, various shades of browns, burnt oranges and navy. The obligatory grey and black could be seen on some pieces.

Fabrics used were mohair and silk crepe teamed with traditional checked wool and wool jacquard,

The models wore their hair in a serious bun and makeup was kept simple, providing a good contrast to the cute collars and fun update of the 60′s retro style.

LAKOBUKIA “Emotions” catwalk show

Showing at Fashion Mavericks, the Strand Palace Hotel 20Feb10

With her A/W10 collection titled “Emotions” Lako Bukia wanted to show both positive kind and dark bad emotions through fabric, shape and colour.

The main colour palette is black for the darker side and white for the lighter side of emotions. A few cream pieces appear to show that not everything is black and white.

Fabrics used are light soft flowing chiffon, a stiffer cotton silk and wool.

Geometric shapes are seen on collars, and by way of diagonal zips. The zips are also used as a bridge to join together the stiffer fabrics with the softer fabrics. Some pieces are obvious with the contrast between the hard and soft fabrics. On others the contrast can only be seen once the zip has been undone and then only revealing the hidden soft silk fabric underneath.  Zips on shoulders and sides allow the wearer the flexibility of changing her silhouette – whenever the mood takes her.

Lako’s shoes look striking in black or white soft leather with triangular heels. She explains the triangle is a more gothic shape and gives a harder emotional contrast to the softness of the leather.

Not surprisingly her favourite piece is the long flowing chiffon pleated dress in white which is teamed with a little sharp cotton silk back to front cape. The cape has a high collar with long geometric lapels which represent the bad emotion. Once the cape is removed, the dress is free of restrictions and can float on just the good emotions.

Lako Bukia, beginning fashion designer, was born on October 4, 1987 in the city of Tbilisi, capital of Georgia. After graduating from School No.58 in Tbilisi, she was immediately offered a place at the A. Kutateladze Tbilisi State Academy of Art, where she did her BA in Fashion Design and Textiles.

SADO “Geometric Glamour” catwalk show.Designer CARLOTTA GHERZI

Showing at Vauxhall Fashion Scout 20 Feb 10

The young designer for the Sado label is Russian born Carlotta Gherzi (of Italian parents) who brings a modern elegant edge to the label.

The latest collection had great styles which could be worn by real women and not just catwalk models. The main colour palette was black with blue and pillar box red.

Silks dominated the tops, dresses and even leggings which brought out the vividness of both the blue and red.

“Geometrical glamour” is the title of this autumn/winter 2010 collection – this was shown in the silk leggings, tops and dresses which were all pleated in horizontal tiers giving texture and depth.

Black knits wear glamorous with glitter woven in to produce wide sparkly horizontal bands

Silver and red brocade made an appearance for the evening dresses. Particularly loved the strapless silver brocade maxi dress.

SADO’s signature is stylish and classical – this season’s collection did not disappoint.

DOII PARIS “Walk in the Forest” catwalk show

Showing at Vauxhall Fashion Scout 21Feb10

This was Korean designer Doii Lee’s first catwalk show in London and it didn’t let her down.

The collection titled “Walk in the Forest” was inspired by her favourite Russian fairytale “Baba Yaga” In this fairytale a wicked stepmother sends her lovely step daughter in to the forest to visit her aunt,Baba Yaga, the witch.

In Doii’s walk in the forest story, she passes through an intoxicating rose maze. Copper haired models wore layered chiffon dresses and glittering sequined dresses – all in the designer’s exclusive illustrated print of large pinkish red roses. Red patent high heeled shoes with patterned fabric tied around the ankles in large bows matched the vividness of the designs. White faux fur trims and linings added softness to some of the stiffer sequined fabrics.  The first outfit on the catwalk immediately caught our attention – long straight chiffon dress with a kick flare hem, draped with a long trailing shawl covered in the sequined rose pattern and lined with white faux fur.

“A dove guides her along the right path” – the digital prints now were of flying white doves on orange/peach light chiffon or heavily sequined fabric. The short belted double breasted coat covered in sequins on large bold doves looked spectacular with its contrasting print of blues and creams on the lapels. The dove print on the long and short chiffon dresses were more stoned down due to their smaller scale.

“A garden full of glorious sunny memories” Main colour palette was cream with a touch of blue, green and pink. The print of potted plants was hazy as if faded by the sun. Here we saw a loose fitting sequined egg-shaped coat with a sexy kick at the bottom and cuff.  The contrasting print on the collar of polka dots added to the glamour.

The story and walk becomes darker, she is in turmoil –mid greys or rich browns are added to the mix. The print is busier and again vivid. The patent shoes colour changes from carefree red to serious black, but still with the patterned fabric tied around the ankle. Here we saw a plain short mid grey double breasted wool coat contrasting perfectly with its brightly patterned lapels, tie belt, cuff bands and buttons.

“Her heart sank”- black and grey dominate and the designer’s prints are of lace and netting. Black lace features on the sequined evening dresses, black fur on the coats. Another gorgeous coat (you can see a pattern emerging here – I’m loving the coats!) this time in black with a touch of white and grey. Egg-shaped, black fur collar and that sexy kick at the bottom and cuff. Slouchy black and grey zipped fur leg warmers over the black patent shoes made a luxurious touch. The silver grey lace print teamed with billowing black lace bishop sleeves made a simple egg shaped mini dress a knock out cocktail dress. And the elbow length black lace puffed sleeves and tiered lace high yoke and hem of another silver grey print mini dress gave an Edwardian vintage look.

“But she knew she was a protected one” – the colours here were pale gold and black. Here we saw a sequined gold and black patterned trench coat with plain light grey lapels, tie belt and pockets. A short sequined gold and black patterned dress was given the 20′s vintage look with a drop waist and a wide band of scalloped gold lace around the hem.

“My skeleton friend is always with me” – again black and grey dominated for the new print of lace skulls.  Here we saw a luxurious knee-length fur wrap coat with silver grey fur wraps and a touch of sequined skull prints; and a plain mid grey mini wrap wool coat adorned with the sequined skull print on the pockets, cuffs, belt and partial front with contrasting polka dot collar and trimming.

“Then the goat queen of the forest is on her side” – honey blonde models came out wearing prints of the goat queen in creams, white, soft browns with a touch of light blue. A padded egg-shaped coat, plain but for the print and teamed with silver grey fur leg warmers. Other outfits lined or trimmed with white faux fur gave a Cossack appearance.

“Divine roses blossom along the dark path of the forest “- Proving anything can look glamorous, a duffle style coat was given the luxury make over with a sequined print of roses along the path of the  green forest, lining and trims of light grey faux fur and with the hem longer at the back.

Chiffon dresses were long and short, some with a few of the signature sequins, some decorated with small hanging hearts down the back and some with their hems longer at the back. All were colourful and patterned.

Dresses in heavier fabrics were completely embellished in sequins making Doii’s print designs even more dazzling.

My favourites were the coats: all statement pieces proving you don’t have to wait to take your coat off before making an entrance.

Doii states that the lady who wears Doii Paris becomes a diva. The last model came out in a black sequined coat and large hat with fringes so long they reached her shoulders.  Not representing the end of the story but in true diva style, this piece wanted to take centre stage.



Presenting at the Portico Room, Somerset House 21Feb10

The style may be bohemian for the husband and wife design duo’s (Suzanne Clements & Inacio Ribeiro) latest collection, but this is bohemian with decadent glamour. They chose to look back to the 70′s around the time when Yves Saint Laurent created his Russian collection

The footwear was to die for – all embellished with sequin patterns. My favourites were the long boots in soft leather slightly slouchy and gathered at the top.

Sequins also adorned dresses, trousers and cardigans along with crystals.

The collection was divided in to definite sections:

A more masculine tailored section – main colour palette charcoal grey, black and dark plum.

Oversized knits were embellished but in a monochrome tone to create understated classical glamour.

The feminine section showed silk dresses, skirts and tops in paisley and marble effect swirl prints.

One dress and trousers in pale gilded jacquard and cardigans embellished with sequin patterns or bejewelled motifs.  The colours were more muted in shades of greens, gold, mustard, light browns and taupe.

The more opulent section showed the heavier brocade for jackets, skirts and coats trimmed with sequins. Main colour palette was black and midnight blue. Nice touch with the leather gloves trimmed with sequins.

This collection shows opulent luxury does not have to be just restricted to eveningwear.



Presenting at the Portico Room, Somerset House 21Feb10

Although advertised as a presentation, designer Julie Wilkins presentation of her label’s Future Classics A/W 10 collection was more like a mini catwalk show.  The benches were set out so the models could walk down in between them – so everyone had a front row view!

The inspiration for this collection was:  ”Cut and paste; the written word and renaissance craft (wo)manship.”

Main colour palette was neutrals and black (what else for classics) with a splash of pinks and oranges to brighten the collection.

Lots of long knits with draped hoods, trousers and leggings. Especially loved the denim print leggings. Plainer leggings in black or grey were given a more interesting look with a row of buttons sewn down the front.

Fur covered just the sleeves and hats giving a more playful look.

Long black satin fingerless gloves reaching above the elbow looked great with the layered chiffon LBDs.

This collection is for the woman who likes soft tailoring and knitwear but wants a little design twist to her classical look.

Pros and cons of Classic Tall UGG Boots

If you’re a fan of UGG or when you have ever read or delved into everything nitty gritty about UGG boots just before, you know for certain the eminence of the classic tall Ugg boots. That emblematic outline of the boot, its look and shape, has defined what the newest is within the category of in tall boots. Yes, these boots are turning out to be an vital representation of tall boots. On the other hand, that’s not as crucial. The important thing is that if they’re worth purchasing. In order to know if they’re, it really is advised that you’ll want to look into why it is becoming so popular.

Initially, UGG uses the uppermost high quality twin face sheepskin to put these boots up. The high top quality of these boots’ materials genuinely accounts for their optimum value. Though you get what you pay for, the twin face sheepskin is so comfy that your feet will feel great with every step you take. The interior wool coating can essentially adapt according to the shape of your feet in order that it’s personalized for every person’s feet, giving you a huge inner sock that is developed into the boots for utmost coziness.

Furthermore, the EVA outsole for the womens snow boots is variable, providing you a lot more relief with each stride or any other activity. Like any other things, it has downsides too. The essential downside is that they are not water-resistant. Thus, stains could definitely be bequeathed on the boots and cleaning them could be much more complex then.

An additional downside is visibly the cost. The classic tall Ugg boots would cost approximately a lot more than $100 something similar for
sorel joan of arctic
and not all individuals are keen to pay out such amount of money on just a pair of boots.

But what’s still great about it is that you will discover still many people who obtain the boots in spite of its high value. Are these boots definitely worth buying then? Well, yes they are absolutely worth buying if you’re just willing to pay out several bucks for a pair of top top quality customized-like winter boots. You’ll find no other boots that could come close to the superiority and coziness of a pair of UGG boots.

Easy Costume Ideas

Easy Costume Ideas

Looking for some easy costume ideas for you next party, well I have some very popular ideas that you can use with maybe something spare in your closet, or maybe a quick trip to the goodwill or  thrift store and then you can make a few adjustments.

Homemade costumes don’t have to involve months of preparation and days of sewing. If you don’t have the money to spend on an expensive costume, or if you have ran out of time to put something together, simply take a look around your house. Chances are you have all that you need for a do it yourself costume, without spending a dime and here are some popular easy costume ideas for you.

French maids

Are generally considered very feminine with their frilly dresses & high heeled stilettos.

What you will need: black dress, small frilly apron, lace headpiece, black fishnets, stilettos & feather duster.

Dress alterations: use a V or round neck dress with sleeves, add gathered lace around neckline, sleeves and hemline by gluing or sewing.


We have the image of seductiveness, darkness & mystique; however with this costume we have added a hint of sexiness.

You will need: black dress, bat or gothic style choker, black fishnets, black boots, long black wig with white stripe, fangs, blood & puncture marks – tattoos for neck (optional).

Dress alterations: use a black round or V neck black long sleeve short dress, cut the hemline and sleeves jaggedly.

Tip: Be careful not to alter the length too much, as you don’t want it shorter.


 If you children already own cowboy or cowgirl boots and a hat, all you need to do is add some blue jeans and a long sleeve check top. If you child has a pony on a stick toy, even better. Parents may also be able to find some rope lying around that can be used as a lasso prop. For a farmer just try adding some hay inside shirt or pants pockets, and a fake pitchfork, rake or hoe as a prop.


 The whole ghost costume is played out, but you can reinvent it using two bed sheets instead of one. Cut eye holes in two sets of sheets and draw a mouth and nose on both, put them both on, tie a rope around your waist to keep the costume on and when people ask tell them you are a ghost dressed as a ghost


Scrubs make a great outfit for lounging around the house or relaxing in general. Try wearing most costumes after the actual holiday. For the most part, it’s not going to work. You’d look foolish and probably wouldn’t be comfortable. Go the smart route and choose scrubs for you’re costume this year.

These are just a few ideas and I hope you have enjoyed these ideas but I have some more easy costume ideas, please have a look .

Varities of shoe and boots sizes

People around the world have varied foot sizes and therefore, it’s important to know your boot size before you set out shopping. Based on statistics, shoes are grouped into standard sizes in a particular range, which may vary from region to region. It is also important to note that normal shoe sizes may vary from average boot sizes, since the latter are made with a wide variety of materials that react differently to various weather conditions. Therefore, if you’re shopping online, look for a separate boot size chart to find your size.

Ankle boots are also the only type of footwear that is worn by both men and women. It was seen in the early 19th century and its popularity has only been on the rise ever since! You can find them in variable length such as low ankle lengths to mid calf lengths.

Boots and Shoes are made of a variety of materials, leather and suede being most popular. Vinyl too is gaining momentum due to the slick sheen it offers. There are also plenty of colors to choose from, from basic browns and blacks, to subtle tones in white and beige and even brighter hues such as fuchsia, red, green, blue and lots more! There are also options of zippers, buckles, laces or straps that you can choose as per your convenience.

Another popular style in boots is that of military boots. Military boots are seen more on men, perhaps, due to their masculine looks. They are worn for the rough and tough lifestyle led by army men. However, as trends change, there are cooler styles of military footwear for women as well! As more and more women shed their inhibitions and explore their athletic side, they need sturdy shoes on their feet.

Boots and shoes for women come in various heel sizes, and essentially, every woman should own one of each type. These include stilettos, kitten heels, platform heels and wedges. This is important because then you can mix and match with various kinds of outfits. Wedge heel shoes look beautiful with A-line skirts and dresses, while kitten heels generally work well for corporate wear. Stilettos look great any which way you wear them.
