For the love of Spikes

My obsession with spikes started a few seasons ago when Burberry introduced their trench coats with spike detailing. I was in love. Spikes have become more mainstream now and it can be worn both edgy and high fashion as well. When implementing spikes, its important to keep only one item with spikes. But you can add as much spiked jewelry as you prefer. You don’t want to overdo the spike look because that can come off as tacky. Jeffrey Campbell has affordable edgy shoes with spikes. Aldo, Steve Madden and Zara all have incorporated spikes in their shoes as well. If you want high fashion, nothing beats Christian Louboutins Spikes shoes. They come in many varieties from metal to metallic to colored spikes. Valentino has gorgeous spiked bags and shoes from their rockstud collection.Zara has spike detailing in their clothes as well. I bought this top from Zara and it has such a perfect modest fit. It comes in 2 styles and of course I bought them both. It’s slightly longer in length and has a loose fit. The sleeves can also be worn rolled up and buttoned in place. It’s casual and edgy. Perfectly worn with heels or flats. Asos, H&M and Forever 21 all sell clothes with spike detailing. If you are following me on Instagram@sanahrashid you probably noticed my spiky nails that I was sporting last week. So edgy and so much fun! In the fashion of loving all things spikes, it only makes sense for me to have spiky nails as well! Below is how I incorporated spikes with a top and a pair of shoes and came up with 2 different looks- one more casual/edgy and one more dressy. I have worn the Jeffrey Campbell spiketini shoes in a previous post, you can view my outfit of the day here. Also, I have worn spiked jewelry in one of my previous posts as well, which you can see here.

Outfit of the day (OOTD) pics from the Blog Launch Photo Shoot

These are OOTD (outfit of the day) pics from the header photo shoot day. My corduroy blazer is from Zara and it’s actually a few years old. I never wore it before and I cut off the tags right before I took these pics! I don’t believe it fit me at one point (probably some time in between pregnancies) and that’s probably when I forgot all about it. You can read all about my love for blazers here. The jeans are from a fairly new store which I absolutely love- Cwonder. The owner is Tory Burch’s ex-husband. I refer to Cwonder as the more affordable version of Tory Burch. The jeans were 75% off, only $20! I like Cwonder jeans because they are mid rise and not low rise jeans. My scarf was purchased at Century 21, for only $20 as well. It’s made of 100% silk from Anne Klein.
