a week in shoes

November 7, 2007

Well, maybe not in reality, but here are a dreamy selection of shoes that, if I owned them, would take me through the week:

These seem like a good pair to start off the week, functional yet whimsical. Marc Jacobs can always be called upon for a beginning of the week shoe crisis.

TUESDAY: loefflerrflatwedgeboot.jpgFlat boots from Loeffler Randall are just the thing to for the inevitable errands you’ll have to run that didn’t get done yesterday.

WEDNESDAY: louboutinleopardwedge.jpgGive your day (and your legs) a little lift in these leopard wedges form Christian Louboutin, the man knows what he’s doing, enough said.

THURSDAY: Stella McCartney Platform PumpAfter work cocktails anyone? Even though you’re tired, these shocking pink Stella McCartney pumps will have you dancing out the office doors and into the corner pub.

FRIDAY: margiela.jpgHot date with the new guy from the 7th floor? Show him your sophisticated side with these gorgeous covered wedge pumps from Martin Margiela – you know after the third martini they’ll be the only classy thing about you…

SATURDAY: glittershoe.jpg  Sure, these Christian Louboutin glitter prive platforms are a bit tacky, but they’d be great for a hot night on the town with the girls.

SUNDAY: These Chloe boots would jazz up any lazy Sunday afternoon stroll through the park or brunch with friends to discuss naughty things that happened in those Louboutins!chloe-boots.jpg

Coveted item of the day

November 7, 2007

Ahh, Balenciaga…

As alluded to previously, I diamond-heart.jpg Balenciaga bags. I can’t quite remember when this love affair started, but it was first consummated in about 2003 with this beauty: img_0752.jpg

gold legsThat said, my love affair is pretty restricted to the bags. Although there is the occasional item of clothing that leaves me drooling,fall 07 shoes there are quite a few that give me pause… Though if you can get away with this C3PO look, more power to you. It’s also hard to imagine on which occasion these shoes would come in handy, unless you were like, I don’t know, Rainbow Brite’s crunchy-fashionista cousin.

At any rate, my love for their yummy bags has not diminished, therefore, here are a few of the current ones that I’ve been dreaming of…

B white hoboTotally digging the hobo with the big hardware. I’d love it in black, or maybe purple…

Also love the round bag in Pine from Fall 2007.

Love the shape, love the color, love the hardware!

B blue GGH

This color is so rich and it would go with everything I own, but not as wild about the style (and as we know I already have a blue one, can”t be too crazy now, can I?!)

And then, ehem, there’s my new baby:

Bbag

Yeah, I did it and I couldn’t be happier. It holds everything – computer, book, and all the myriad crap that I accumulate and lug around all over the city – and I wonder why I have neck and back problems!

Acid Wash? Really?

October 9, 2007

sevenacidwash.jpgStrolling around the internet recently I’ve noticed an odd, slightly unsettling new (actually old) trend: acid washed jeans. They’re coming back? Seriously? I love fashion as much as the next girl but I just don’t understand why the fashion gods insist on bringing certain things back. I thought we were all agreed that acid wash was a mistake the first time, so why do it to us again? Seven, Corpus and Urban Outfitters, among others, havecorpusskinny-jean.jpg all reintroduced this blast from the past but I have serious doubts about it being a popular trend this time around. I guess they really aren’t any worse than those dirty jeans from a few years ago. You know, the ones that made it look like you’d sat in a pool of mustard or chocolate or something. And the whiskering on the front pocket trend, was that supposed to be flattering? It wasn’t. What do you think they’ll do next?

Shine On

October 7, 2007

mcqueen-elvie.jpgI am so into this bag! It’s very Darth Vader-S&M don’t you think? Oooh, that actually sounds kinda creepy and geeky, but you get the idea. Anyway, it’s called the Elvie, it’s the handiwork of the fabulous Alexander McQueen. I love the structure and the hardware, it would so make my regular jeans and t-shirt kick ass!

This time of year really makes me want to buy a new bag (oh, who am I kidding I always want a new bag). I don’t often think ofYSL Tribute, quilted croc myself as a patent girl, but for some reason I seem to be digging the shiny this year. It just feels so crisp and polished, chic and sophisticated. I’m also in love with this YSL Tribute bag: gorgeous clean lines and the croc quilting is divine.

Lastly I’ll toss out the requisite MJ bag, this one’s the Christina. I’ve loved Marc Jacobs for ages, sometimes he hits it out of the park, other times it’s hard to imagine what was going on in that head of mj-christina.jpghis (oh, I guess we all know that by now). At any rate, I like the more refined quilting he’s got going on these days, a modern homage to the classic Chanel.

Oh, so many bags, so little money…and don’t even get me started on the Balenciagas, drool!!!
