On The Fringe

I have been wanting a particular dress for ages.

I loved all the costumes in Down With Love but I particularly loved the red fringe-y dress worn in the date montage scenes.

I finally found a similar dress and feel ready to wear it.  I got it yesterday and it looks spectacular!

I've been planning this FOR YEARS, because I have a pair of vintage red velvet Joseph La Rose heels, just like the ones worn in the movie that have been panting to be paired up with that dress.

They look so good together I can't stand it!  Now… where shall I go to shake my fringe?

Not Even Winter; Waiting For Spring


Like you wouldn't be thinking about these even though they are 6 months away from being a reality.

I mean, come on!  Rainbow Rockstuds.

Also known as the Valentino 1973 Chevron Slingback Rockstud.

Falling Forward

I know I've been terrible at posting but Fall is such a busy time that it's hard for me to get on the computer to write when I'm out and about!

That said, here's a small cameo shot from a recent outing.  My co-worker took a picture of my shoes, the JCrew leopard Ettas, and my husband's stripy socks.  We're co-ordinated in a "power clashing" kind of way.

I'm also going to give these babies a try… the Sophia Webster Mila booties (I've been eyeing them up for a while) and...

… the Valentino runway Carmen booties.   They're so impractical but I'm so in love with them.  

I hope I hate them both so they can stop haunting my dreams.  But I'm worried they won't!

Loving Lucifer

Everyone is loving the Lucifer Louboutins today.

 They are well named, because, damn… they are high even for me.

I do have two peeves about them, as gorgeous as they are, though.

1. The spikes have dulled a bit after 2 years but I can't think of a way to polish them up.


2. The sizing, as with all Louboutins, are wildly inconsistent.  I mean I had to go a full size down with these - from a 35 to a 34.  That's just crazy!

But at the end of the day, you just can't fault them because they are so darn good.

Something good, something bad? Bit of both?

Dalek Dots Define

When I first saw the runway shots from Valentino's Fall/Winter 2014, all I could think was really elegant Daleks.

The great thing is…. I love the Daleks.  They're so evil and snarky.  My people!

Now the question is, do I want the mary janes or the booties.  The mary janes are more practical but I'm in love with the booties.

Aww, hell, maybe I need both.

Obviously Obvious

Well, of course I'm going to get the Rouge Louboutin nail lacquer. Why would you even need to ask?

And if I can manage the 4 3/4" heel, I hope to pair it up with the Louboutin Argotik heel.

How sexy is the red cut into the vamp?  Swoon!

Also, want to see some sexy Louboutins worn in a sexy way… go see Lucy.  Scarlet looked awesome!

In Love with Barton

I fell in love with with the pale pink Ralph Lauren Barton ballet pumps from their Resort 2014 show.

But, alas, they were sold out in my size.

After much sighing and stalking of the Ralph Lauren site, I found that the black version was available, in my size and on sale!

It wasn't my first choice but black will be perfect for my Fall 2014 theme and I love how the ribbons wind their way up to tie around my ankles.

I'm going to still stalk the pink but the black is happily mine!
