SD Review – Demeter Fragrances
You probably know Demeter perfumes from their quirky Fragrance Library of “pure” scents. They captured attention ages ago with perfumes that capture the complex and textured smells of Rain, Tomato and Dirt.
Top of the World Design
Even though the Scandinavian countries are renowned for their design aesthetic, I feel they are one area of the world that doesn’t get nearly enough attention in the shoe world.
In America, it can be challenging to hear about and buy from these designers as they are not carried in many stores here. If they don’t have an online shop, it’s almost impossible to buy from them, which is sad, because there are some amazing and whimsical shoes coming out of these countries.

I think my whole week was determined by my hair and my nails. That sounds so bizarre to say but when you start off with messy pigtails…
Le Sigh – Miu Miu Velvet Bow Victorian Pump
I’m smitten with this modern take on Victorian style by Miu Miu.
SD Review – Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain
I’ve spoken before about my love for lipstains and now I have a new one that I’ve fallen for. I have just bought three colors of the Revlon “Just Bitten” collection.
I bought Twilight (deep berry), Passion (medium pink) and Frenzy (bright fuchsia). They don’t drip going on, stain well, and have a nice balm on the other side.
Great color, great application and as natural or bright as you would like to go. I bought mine at CVS for about $9 each. Since I just bought them I’m not sure how long they will last but I’ll let you know!
Looking at Choo
I haven’t taken a first, much less a second, look at Jimmy Choo’s heels in the past few year. Choo’s used to be my favorite but the last few seasons have seemed a bit, um, not sure how to describe it… maybe, Vegas-y?
Regardless, haven’t been a fan. But in this new crop I’m seeing a few styles, admittedly still a bit flashy, that I wouldn’t mind wearing.

It was a good week for shoes
Ensemble du Jour: 6-4-11
More outfit photos! Can you believe it?
So, I spent a week miserable from sunburn and basically not wanting to go outside ever again. When I did go out on Saturday I decided I was going to be as covered up as possible while still looking cute. Which means: dress, cardigan, espadrilles, parasol, hat and sunglasses.
The dress is the “Who’s That Girl” dress from ModCloth and the adjustable tie and straps are great, plus it’s lined.
