Minty Trend: Buckle Ankle Strap Boots

Hey everyone! How was your holiday?
I had an okay Christmas, grateful for family and blessings.

Okay, now for shoes! I have noticed a few street style site's featuring open ankle strap booties, and I'm guessing this will be a hit for 2013! The first photo displays a woman wearing the Balenciaga Buckle Ankle Boot, a very similar version can be found here. I am more for the high heeled ankle strap boot, like the bottom right photo. This particular boot is from Zara and it's on SALE right now for a very reasonable price. Check it out! What do you think of this trend? Are you into it?

Thanks for stopping by!

Minty Looks: The Holiday Party

Hey ladies and gents!! If you're a little unsure of what to wear this holiday season, Dsquared2 Fall 2012 collection has options for almost anyone who wants to be a little edgy and chic. 

1. Are you on a budget? Pick a fancy velvet or metallic blazer that can jazz up any outfit.
2. If your hanging out with friends this holiday, wear jeans maybe! But...spice it with a classic trench with rolled sleeves and your favorite pins or brooches from 2012.
3. If attending a holiday party at the office, a pencil skirt and comfy sweater would be perfect, classy and comfy.
4. This new year's eve, instead of a fancy dress, why not try a form fitting pant suit with contrasting lapel and sparkling pumps. Try it! You might steal the show. 

Trust Me :)

Mint Report: NAACP Awards

Congratulations to R&B/Soul Singer Elle Varner and Miguel. They were nominated for multiple NAACP Awards, which was revealed during a ceremony on Tuesday. I'm super excited for both artist because although they are recognized in the music industry I still believe they are very underrated. The "Refill" Singer Elle Varner is up for three awards, against artist including Alicia Keys, Tamela Mann, Missy Elliott, and Estelle. Miguel has earned two nominations for outstanding music video, and outstanding male artist. He shares these categories with Bruno Mars, Usher, Trey Songs and Lupe Fiasco. Good luck to both Nominees.

Are you familiar with Elle Varner & Miguel? Check them out!
Until next time.

Minty Trend: Two Tone

Lately I have been seeing this trend evolve and although it might be super simple, that's what I love about it. Black and white are two very classic colors and they obviously go well together. Below King B (Beyonce) ;) and Kim Kardashian show us how they wear this two tone trend. Here and here are a few style options for the fashionista's like me who like to get the look without dishing out too much "Guap" (cue Big Sean) haha! Hope you guys are having a great week.

Minty Trends: Must Have

Have you heard of Del Toro? I came across this brand a little while ago and I really love what I've seen so far. The sneaker below is the women's leopard pony hair alto chukka sneaker with brown leather laces and signature red leather heel tab. Handmade in Italy. They will take a chunk out of your pocket at $335 if your on a budget, but I think they are worth it. Click

They also do limited collections with fashion forward trendsetter like The Man Repeller. Get Del Toro X The Man Repeller here.

Here are the limited edition slippers with musician Theophilus London.

They recently had there 2nd annual art basel party in Miami, Florida. It was also the grand opening of there new boutique, which included an exclusive installation of custom created Del Toro's from international and local artist. What do you think?
