co-op boots

I've recently bought two pairs of boots from Barneys (I'll share them with you soon.). I also saw this Co-Op pair when checking out the site. After making a phone call, I discovered that there is a pair left in Beverly Hills.

Pull-on ankle boot? Check. Mid-heel Wedge? Check. Interesting leather detail along the front? Check. Do you think I should get them? I don't want to spend $12 to ship if they are a dud.

disco nights necklace

I received an email from Anthropologie that their holiday started yesterday... so I decided to take a browse online. While browsing, I found this necklace. I love the mix of solid and faceted baubles along a group of chains. I also like that it's 38 inches long. Do you think I should get it?

disco nights necklace $29.95

shoe obsessed

All I can think about lately are shoes. I've been on a mission. I only like maybe 6 pairs of my shoes and the rest really should be trashed (not even worth giving to Goodwill). The last post was about a shoe that I love but know would only see the light of my closet. Now these... I bet I would wear all the time. They don't look like much when pictured alone so I tried to give it some justice with J.Crew pictures from their catalog (where I discovered these shoes and the small shoe company that hand makes them). They are not pretentious. They are no show stoppers. They are a combination of cute and comfort. Oh... I think I am in love.

so wrong but so right

Dolce Vita 'April' pumps

I really want these pumps. My sanity is telling me that even with a 1 inch platform, it doesn't make up for the 5 inch heel. My rule is no greater than a 3 inch difference. Basically, I learned that I can do 3 inches for 8 hours. Um... maybe these won't kill. These are seriously HOT. Can I get an AMEN?

Anna Sui for Target

Last weekend, I was browsing the Target website wondering if any cute lines have come by its way and lo and behold... the Anna Sui line just came out. I instantly drove to my closest Target and tried on a rack of clothes. A lot of it is cute and if I had money to waste, I might have bought a few things. But $70 for a dress I would probably only wear once (and then get uninterested), that wasn't going to happen.

I did find one must buy item and just made sure to hold my breath as I went through the check-out line. It's this silk jumper... full of pockets, grossgrain ribbons to adjust along the waist and back, and fun pleats. I bought it in my usual size since it's meant to be oversized. With the ties, I can make as loose or fitted as I want. Plus, it's a seasonless piece so I'm going to wear it tons.

christopher kane for topshop

Mucho lo siento mi amigos y amigas (hey don't shoot me if my Spanish is off). I didn't realize how much time I allowed to pass before I returned to my blog. But suddenly... something has caused an itch in me to blog once again (at least for today)- Christopher Kane. I love all the mesh, eyelets, gems, and crocodile prints in his Topshop collection. If only I was in New York (or whereever one can find a Topshop) next week... If only I had a lot of money to blow (because this collection ain't cheap)... If only...

road kill

It's been awhile since I've gotten excited by anything on Etsy. I was looking for a camera ring which somehow lead to a boombox necklace which then lead me to Road Kill (or Elaine Ho Jewelry). Road Kill is an Etsy shop that specializes in handcrafted silver jewelry. She's got crazy categories like nerd, all you can eat, and roadkill. I'm really feeling her designs and I want to own one (or more) of her pieces. I'm favoring these. (Oh... and you can also go to her website to see all of her designs.)

6 ways to wear a scarf

Maybe you are like me. You loves scarves but your knowledge is limited on how to wear it. Sometimes when you see a scarf worn just like how you want it (in a magazine or online or on a person), you try to save that picture. Still... at the end of the day, you're a little bit lost and you go back to that go-to style.

Well, let's fear not. I was checking out Leigh & Luca (one of my favorite scarf designers) this morning and I saw a tab- How to Wear. Could this be for real? I was happy to see them share six ways to wear a scarf. They've gotten written directions with visuals. They even have a video. Here it is. Watch and Enjoy! Let the scarf wearing begin!
