Mmmmm, Isabel Marant’s chain wrapped boots. Tough chicness, they’re amazing.

Ok, despite Karl Lagerfeld’s eccentricities, I absolutely adore his artistry. The Chanel RTW Spring 2010 show has taken my breath away. I loved the homey barnyard/country look of his show and how all of his models/outfits were just the right amount of this soft chic flavor, enough to be adorable every-day-wear but still high fashion. The blends of tweed with flowing transparent chiffon & colors of pastels starkly contrasting with black…. I felt like each model looked like they were in some sort of faerie-land, the outfits were so ethereal and they looked like ballet costumes.





I’ve noticed that this fashion season, transparent tattooed tights seem to be very in. Better snatch up a pair when you can, cause they look amazing!

Now about the footwear… I’m not sure how I felt about those clogs, I felt like they tied in the collection perfectly, but I would never be caught on the street wearing a pair. And they look like DEATH to walk in, ouch!




But these shoes on the otherhand, I would definitely purchase.


I like how soft the black appears against the carved ivory heel. I’m in love, how about you?

I think it’s fair to say that booties are now one of THE top fashion trends of this season and probably going to stick around for at least another year. They’re just so adorable and nice to wear. Instead of being completely like boots, designers have changed the “bootie” to display different features. They take on the style of sandals and even peep-toe heels… or they stick to the normal shortened boot style.

I have two pairs of booties… and I definitely want more. Here are some of my current internet shopping cart picks!


Oh and right now, Urban Outfitters has Free Shipping on orders over $75! Use the code “SHIPYEAH“. It expires on October 5th. There are a lot of new shoes in stock and a lot of good items on sale! 🙂

I am absolutely breath-taken by Marchesa’s Spring 2010 collection’s shoes. Christian Louboutin usually works with Marchesa to create amazing heels that the models strut down the runway in. And this year, I think Louboutin has outdone himself… if there is ever such a thing.

What impressed me most out of all the shoes were the ankle booties that the models wore. I loved the cute patent bow and the see-through mesh of the shoe itself. My favorite part, though, is definitely the heel area… that beautiful feathered white design starchly contrasting with Louboutin’s iconic red. It gave the perfect sophisticated but fierce look to the heels itself.


I also am really enjoying Marchesa’s detail on the model’s feet. I think it’s great to see the play upon the mesh of the bootie with the black flowers seemingly-tattooed onto their feet. Aren’t you just dying for a pair? I know I am!

So today is the last installment of the 5 must have shoes… We’ve almost covered all the required shoes for different occasions and now here’s the grand finale!

Evening Sandals


Clockwise from bottom left: Yves Saint Laurent Cage, Nina Gita, Cesare Paciotti T-Strap, Lauren by Ralph Lauren Alberta.

It is crucial to have a pair of evening sandals that are easy to match with your clothing when an occasion arises. You must have a pair of sandals ready in hand so that you can rise to that occasion! Wear these precious babies to a dinner event, dance/club, or to that very special date. As long as your feet look stunning, I am absolutely positive that you will too.

I would suggest going with a metallic tone, because it can be flashy while being simplistic. Or my personal favorite.. black strappy sandals, you can never do wrong in wearing those, they’re like the LBD of shoes!

Don’t forget that if you do get a pair of open-toed sandals that your toes are looking fabulous too. Well kept toes complete the oomph that you’re striving for.

Hope you all have enjoyed the five shoes that I think we all must have! Do you agree or did I forget to cover some absolutely necessary footwear? Let me know.

How many of you have always wanted to own a pair of Jimmy Choos? I have always wished that I could shell out $700 in order to own a pair of the exclusive brand.

But yes, if you feel the way I do, we don’t have to wait that much longer! H&M announced in June that the next bigshot designer that they would be collaborating with would be.. Jimmy Choo! And what’s even better is that Jimmy Choo, an originally accessories only brand, will be designing clothing as well. And your guy friends, boyfriend, husband, dad, etc won’t have to be left out either, because H&M will also be stocking Jimmy Choo-designed menswear and accessories. I’m sure this collection will definitely sweep us off our feets and I’m very excited to see what Tamara Mellon (Jimmy Choo Co-Founder and President) has in store for us.

The above shoe is a design preview, I’m loving the side view… but this shoe will definitely be a “try-on-before-purchase” because I’m not sure if the front will be flattering on my feet. I guess, we’ll find out!

The collection will be gracing H&M shops on November 14th.  Get ready to hustle in a few months!! I will be posting a save-the-date a couple of days before. 🙂

This post is a little bit overdue, but then again I just started my blog so bear with me!

Balmain S/S 09

Balmain S/S 09

So, Balmain came out with these glorious heels that have stormed the fashion world in what seems like a blur these past few months. Giuseppe Zanotti really outdid himself this past season (Spring-Summer 09) with this pair of heels. The beautiful crystals contrast the masculinity of the studs in what seem to be the shoes of the year.

Jeffrey Campbell



Ever since Balmain came out with this pair, other designers have been catching onto this studded style. Zara, Jeffrey Campbell, Aldo, Bebe, and etc. all make more affordable versions to the first pair that will run you about $1,400.

Anyway the Balmain heels and other “inspired” looks have come out for a while. There are even studded sandals now! Which I find more and more attractive as I debate whether or not to get a pair. The most attractive pair I’ve found are the ones on Endless.com for around $41! Not bad?

So what do you think about studs and their appearance on shoes?
