End of Blog

Hey Everyone!

I'm just writing this post to say that I have decided to end Fatal Attraction 2 Fashion indefinitely.

I will still continue blogging, and I may post things on here from time to time, but my efforts will now be focussed on my fashion illustration blog, Danielle Shepherd Fashion Illustration.

I want to thank you all so much for all for taking the time to visit this blog since I started it in 2008, and also for leaving all those wonderful, encouraging comments on my posts.

Please feel free to visit me on my new blog, I'd love to see you all there! x

Booted up for winter

All the leaves are brown, and the sky is grey, I went for a walk on a winter's day...

If you were in certain parts of the U.K and the U.S over the past few weeks, chances are you've also encountered quite a bit of snow while out walking on a winter's day. And what a bone-chilling, treacherous walk it can be if your footwear is not designed to withstand these icy weather conditions.

Winter boots may not be the most elegant of footwear but when functionality plays an important role, unfortunately the level of chicness tends to go down. Luckily there are more options than 'total fashion monstrosity' available and the boots I've listed below guarantee you will step out with your style, budget and physical balance intact.

Black Lace-up Snow Boots
Price: UK£58.00 (US$89.75)

Mocha Fur Wedge Calf Boots
Price: UK£29.99 (US$46.40)

Kamik Women's Stratford Winter Boot
Price: US$90.00

Suedette Faux Fur Lined Boot
Price: US$35.80

ASICS 'Snow Eden' Boot
Price: US$99.95

Sidenote: Happy New Year everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful holiday and a great start to 2011!

Rome Street Style

Yeah, I know what you're thinking, "Don't quit your day job". Well not to worry, I have absolutely no intentions of even thinking about becoming a photographer. I did my best but it's a shame that these photos don't come close to capturing the brilliant style I saw every day while I was in Rome.
Italians may not be as wild and creative with their personal style as Londoners are, but I was struck by how fashionably flawless they were. They know a great fit, what colours work well together - and they rock an outfit with an easy, nonchalant confidence like no other. (perfect hair and makeup helps a little too!).
P.S Not all these people in the photos are Italians but still stylish nonetheless. :)

Danielle Shepherd Fashion Illustration

Hey everyone,

I know I promised some Rome Street Style in the next post, so think of this as like a commercial break post.

I just wanted to take this opportunity to plug (it's not shameful if it's on my own blog right?) my new fashion illustration blog,
Danielle Shepherd Fashion Illustration.

I've posted some of my illustrations on this blog before but I thought it was time to create a new one dedicated solely to my work. I would really appreciate it if you'd check it out, and if you like, leave a comment or two. Thanks a lot!

Now back to your regularly scheduled program.

What I Wore: Roman Holiday

Up until a week ago, I had only travelled to two countries in my life - Trinidad and England. I'm happy to say that I can now add Italy to that list. Rome, to be exact. I had been thinking about taking a trip for a long time but going to Rome was a fairly last minute decision.

I only stayed for 5 nights but that was more than enough time to fall totally in love with the Eternal City. Whether it was sightseeing at the Colosseum or strolling along Via del Corso, it was easy to see that this amazing city was thoroughly abundant with beauty, history, style and elegance.

My hotel was located in Central Rome and was in fairly close proximity to most of the major sites so therefore my main mode of transportation was walking. I don't know about you but if I'm doing a lot of walking I like to be comfortable, which means relaxed clothing and flat shoes.


I have to say, most of the shopping on the high street was a little out of my budget range but ever the bargain hunter, I did manage to find out about a popular Sunday market in the area of Porta Portese. It was a longer trek than most of the other places I'd been to - 30 minute walk from my hotel - plus the rain was pelting, but it was all worth it. After rummaging through a number of stalls, I scored these two great pieces below.

Have you travelled to any exciting places recently?

Will post some Rome Street Style in the next post - paparrazzo style!
