Butterflies Aren’t Free

I need/want some new dresses.  
Not that this would look as good on me and not that I have anywhere to really wear it, but I am totally smitten with this gorgeous Lanvin butterfly dress.   I love taupe and black together. 

I’ll just ignore the fact that it’s $5820.

Le Sigh….

Silky Tie

There are not many sizes left of these JCrew Etta cap toe pumps but I’m just so in love with the gorgeous fabric that I had to post them.

I love the sumptuous colors that are just so perfect for fall.  Rich browns, golds and teals.

I’m going to keep checking back because I hope they will offer more sizes again.

Le sigh!

What a Minx

A great lifestyle shot of gorgeous shoes in action goes a long way to peak my interest.

Case in point – How fabulous do these Nasty Gal Minx lucite heels look in this shot?

They’re so breezy and summery.  I love the almond toe and cruelty-free materials.  Plus the heel is so fun.

And for $88 they are on trend but inexpensive enough to not worry if they are too seasonal or trendy.

Now if they only started at a size 35, I’d be set!

Back in Black

If you’ve been sad that the “Urban Shoe Myth” Manolo Blahnik Campari black patent mary jane has been unavailable for a while, you are in luck!

Bergdorfs is selling them again!

It’s hard to tell from the site’s images, but the heel looks a bit lower than the pair that I have.  I’ll have to go home and measure them.

If you want a sexy, classic, never-going-out-of-style heel, this is the mary jane for you.

When you see a shoe myth in the wild, you need to pounce!

Checking in… with Camilla

What a week!

 I’m sorry I disappeared but I was on a work trip last week and then was whisked away to Asheville, one of my favorite destinations, for my birthday.    It was a lovely mini-break filled with relaxation and good food.

But of course when you return to reality, there is a ton to catch up on.  And I have been neglectful here.

I’ve been pulling old suits and dresses out of the back of my secondary closet because… well, they fit.  I’ll have to do another post about that process but suffice it to say I’m a bit “smaller” now and still working towards my ultimate goal.

Today I’m wearing a long black pencil skirt and my pair of Camilla Skovgaard Chastity heels.

It’s been a while since I’ve checked up on Ms. Skovgaard’s work and I was a bit sad to see sandals like these:

But then I was heartened by these sexy and edgy sandals… so her design aesthetic.

These amazing boots with her signature sawtooth sole are also pretty fabulous. 

It’s good to see that Skovgaard is still creating the shoes I would go for if I wanted to look amazing, strong and sexy.  She has a great style that just epitomizes “power shoe”.
