Feature Friday: White Hot Heat!

We’re still reeling from a nailbiting, amazing and suspenseful series capped off by a great championship game! For the second year in a row, The Miami Heat have brought home the title to sunny South Florida. And the Wade/James/Bosh trifecta just earned themselves (and their team) another wildly luxurious limited edition Hublot. Seriously LeBron, where are all the Miami Heat Audemars Mr. Ambassador? The new Miami Heat King Power is stunning, but when the Heat are this hot, we all know that red and black take a backseat to white. Cartier is happy to assist with a sizzling Santos 100 in snow white, and we’ll be celebrating all weekend while wearing it. The question is, what to wear with it? You could do this ONE by Otte Ellen dress, paired with Diane Von Furstenberg Ophelia wedges, both available at Shopbop. It’s a distinctly Miami outfit, one that celebrates the rich culture of beachside bohemia and even a little International Gypset flare. Or you can cater to the magic city’s sizzling night life, club scene & keep it short, white and tight in that Three Floor Adolescent sister dress with cutouts (shown with Camilla Skovgaard sandals). It’s your weekend, your choice!

What’s the Deal with This New Kim Kardashian Diamond Ring?

For weeks – if not months – press and pundits have been speculating on the likelihood of an engagement in Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s future. After Kanye treated Kim to an Italian getaway to celebrate her 32nd birthday many thought it was all but settled that he would propose.

Just this last week, on October 24, paparazzi spotted Kim at a Christian Louboutin boutique in Miami, Florida. The curvy celeb was sporting hip-hugging jeans, a black crocodile Hermes Birkin Bag, and a suspiciously large oval-shaped diamond ring on the pinky finger of her right hand.

Speculation that Kardashian was indeed engaged to hip-hop superstar Kanye West and has opted to wear the ring on her pinkie only out of deference to the fact that she’s still technically married to Kris Humphries has been more-or-less squashed by sources close to the starlet including Kardashian family matriarch Kris Jenner. Regarding whether or not the engagement rumor was true, Jenner said: “If it was, I would know about it.”

The Italy trip took the pair of lovers from Rome to Venice to Florence but the only special surprise was a custom birthday cake for Kim, who blogged “What a romantic weekend! One I’ll never forget.”

Still, one has to wonder if perhaps there will soon be another diamond ring in Kim’s future, perhaps in the next season of Kourtney and Kim Take Miami.
