As I was browsing InStyle’s Springs Cutest Shoes online, I came across these HAUTE shoes by Jimmy Choo. Are they GORG or what???? I actually went to the site to find these (the green suede and wood $825) but I couldn’t find them anywhere on Jimmy Choo’s site. That’s when I came across these babies and fell instantly in love. They are in the Spring/Summer 11 Collection as they should be and have all the elements I absolutely adore… leather, suede and platform. You can’t go wrong with these 3 items in a shoe!! Check out this ad. If this doesn’t make you want to buy them, I don’t know what will. If your interested in viewing the collection, you can here.
I so didn’t plan to have 2 posts back to back about shoes, but you can never talk about SHOES too much, right??? I’ve been AWOL with Fashion Beauty Friend Friday lately, I’ve just been so busy and kind of lost track of everything going on and my email has been flooded lately, so I just kinda felt out of whack on everything! My girl, Krystle of FierceFabFit brought this to my attention when I saw her post!! All I saw was the word, “SHOES” Ha Ha Ha I knew I had to jump on these questions ASAP! If you want to learn more about FBFF be sure to head over to ModlyChic to get all the details.
1.What is your go-to pair of shoes?
This may sound a bit strange, but I really don’t have a go-to pair of shoes. I am in love with ALL my shoes so I kinda just pick the shoe that goes best with the outfit I’m wearing. I do find that I wear my BCBG platform pumps the most. They just pretty much go with EVERYTHING!
2. What goes into your shoe buying decisions?
My motto is: If I like them, I’m buying them! LOL Maybe that is why I have so many pairs. Hmmmmm
3. The majority of the shoes in your closet are what color?
Reds and Pinks – I used to have so many pairs of Black shoes. I try to stay away from buying so many black just because black shoes always dominate any woman’s closet. Of course, its good to have at least one pair of those classic black pumps. If there is a shoe that I love and I know I’m going to buy it, I almost always will buy it in the other color available.
4. When it comes to designer shoes what are your favorite brands and why?
I’m really not one to be so into designer shoes. In my opinion, if the shoe is my style and I love it, I’m going to buy it. Whether it costs $200+ or $10, you’ll find it in my closet. I do love Jeffrey Campbell, Dolce Vita, Sam Edelman, BCBG, Betsey Johnson, Michael Kors, Gianni Bini and of course CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN!! I love all of these brands because the shoes are just HAUTE! period.
5. If price wasn’t an issue, you’d own which shoe?
I’d own every pair of Christian Louboutin ever created! LOL I love love love his shoes.com. LOL The “red bottoms” are just Oh So SEXXXXXY and they are comfy too. Well not that comfy, but it sounded good. LOL LOL
Who said diamonds are a girls best friend?????? Shoot, get me some Louboutins!!
It’s that time again… Everybody Everywear. I always look forward to participating and seeing all the FAB ways other fashion lovers have styled different items. The item for the month of April is THE MAXI. I love Maxi’s. They are just so comfy. You can dress them up with pumps or dress them down with a pair of flip flops. I have so many Maxi’s (8 to be exact) and it took quite awhile for me to decide which Maxi I was going to rock. I wear my Maxi so many different ways. I might wear one as a swimsuit coverup, or for dinner with the hubby on a Summer night. There is really no wrong way to wear a Maxi. I decided to rock this BCBGMAXAZRIA Maxi that I purchased years ago from TJ Maxx. I bought this fedora a couple weeks ago from Target and I thought it would go perfectly. I had a lot of fun doing this photoshoot!!! Can you tell? LOL
Don’t forget to check out Everybody Everywear to see all the other FAB stylish ideas featuring The Maxi.
Happy Sunday! It’s another beautiful day here in Atlanta. Yesterday we had 90 degree weather and today almost 90. It was a perfect day for Fashionography. I was invited to this awesome event and I’m so glad I was able to attend. Since the weather was so nice, I decided to wear these silk shorts that I bought a few weeks ago from one of my favorite boutiques in Midtown, ENVY! I was going to wear a red polka dot front bow blouse, but opted for this vintage blouse that I also wore here. And of course, I completed the look with my coral KAYLAS, the 1st pair of shoes that I purchased from the new shoe club Sole Society.
This was a fashion event dedicated to spreading the love and passion of fashion, and the positive impact it has on today’s generation. The show featured many up and coming fashion designers in the Atlanta area such as Beachbling Swimwear, Fogle by Fogle, Marqo Kennedy Designs, Paul Anthony, Low Down and a special tribute showcase to gone but not forgotten Designer Kirk Kelley, via the Kirk Kelley Archives. The show benefited the Center for Black Women’s Wellness (CBWW), a non-profit organization that provides free and low-cost services to empower black women and their families toward physical, mental and economic wellness. Below are a few of some of my favorites from the event.
I hope everyone had a great weekend!!! I met up with a few other Atlanta Bloggers this weekend for a FAB event Fashion Uncorked. I’ll chat with you guys more about it later. I figured I’d better do an outfit post since I’ve been A.W.O.L for a few days. In the mean time, you can check out The Fashionista Next Door and see some of the fab designs from the fashion show and even a group picture we all took together. Yep, we all KNOW that we are super stars!! LOL In our dreams anyway! LOL LOL LOL
So this is another outfit that I was patiently waiting for me to post. I wore this outfit last week on Wednesday. How do you feel about swing jackets? I LOVE them. I have a few different ones and I think I just went crazy and bought a bunch of them a few years ago. I think they are still very stylish. They are perfect for that Spring day where the weather is nice, but still a tiny bit chilly and where you still need to wear a light jacket. Katherine Heigl was spotted wearing a trench swing jacket back in 2008. YES, 2008 ladies. So don’t ever throw your old stuff out because you think its out of style because 1. Its always gonna come back around and 2. this trend is here to stay!! Sometimes I feel like I am already dressing for Spring, but blame it on this gorgeous Atlanta weather that we have been getting. Today it was 74… Can You Believe It?????
I’m still going strong in the Shoeper Shoe Challenge. I still have LOTS more shoes to go…
I wore this outfit on Tuesday. The white wide-leg pants trend is in full effect for Spring 2011. Kim Kardashian and Kristen Bell rocked their white wide-leg pants. Each styled it very differently. I opted to style my white wide-leg pants with an orange button up shirt, ,black pumps and a black belt. I bought these pants 2 years ago and this is probably the 2nd time I’ve worn them. LOL I am so glad this trend is making a major impact for Spring (as stated on mystyle.com ). I’d say the best way to style these pants would be to make sure you wear a really high pump… pretty much a stilletto!!
It was pretty funny when I took these pictures. I was in the park, as usual, and this lady walked past me with her dog. She came by a second time and asked me, “What are you taking pictures of?” I told her, “Me!” Then she says, “Your taking pictures of YOU!” Like she was just apauled. LOL Then I say, “Yes, I have a fashion blog.” Then she says it again, “So, your taking pictures of YOURSELF?” I wanted to say, “Keep it moving lady!” LOL But I kindly just said, “YES! I have a FASHION BLOG!” Then she gets snippy and puts her hand on her hip and says, “My DAUGHTER has a FASHION BLOG TOO!” I wanted to say, “Then you know what I’m doing, so get outta my face old lady!” LOL LOL LOL But me, being the nice person that I am, I just said, “Oh OK!” and just continued to take my pictures. Then she startes to strike up a conversation with me the 3rd time she comes around to me and says, “Your pants are so nice, I wish I could wear them and look as good in them as you do.” I still wanted to say, “Lady, leave me alone!” LOL LOL But I kindly said THANK YOU! hahaha
People are just so nosey when it comes to taking my pictures with my tripod. They usually just stare, noone has been bold enough to ask me what exactly I was doing besides this little old lady who was walking her dog. LOL!!
As of today, I have saved 3 pairs of shoes for the Shoeper Shoe Challenge that I am participating in. I stjll have a lot more to go!!
I am so behind on posting updated pictures. I am about 2 days behind, but never fret, I will get caught up for you guys. LOL This is going to be a really really short post.
Here I am wearing khaki pin striped pants that I bought from H&M so long ago. I found this wrap sweater dress at TJ Maxx a few weeks ago. I really like the ruffle detail and I love the wrap. I completed the look with my grey suede oxford booties. As you know, I am participating in the Shoeper Shoe Challenge. This is pair #2 that I have saved….88 more to go.
Today is the day of LOVE….. who says? If you know me then you know I think Valentine’s Day is so overrated. I mean, who started this Valentine’s Day really??? Why should we celebrate the day of LOVE on 1 day? Valentine’s Day should be a day that is shared on a daily basis. Hubby shows me how much he loves me daily and he gets me flowers, chocolates, wines and dines me, just because. That’s what makes it even more special! Not when you get great things on a day that you are expecting something. Do things that you did today, EVERYDAY!!! ::smiles:: Thats why I think its so overrated, but anywho… Hubby and I went out and had a great time. It was an excuse for another “date night” and I love having date nights with hubby. It makes me fall in love with him all over again.
The plan was to go to the Alvin Ailey ballet, reservations at One Midtown Kitchen and then out for drinks and dancing. Well, all of that changed when something unexpected happened and we ended up missing the ballet, our reservations and had to push our day back even later than we wanted to. It was all good though, we still had a great time and had dinner at Benihana’s then we met our friends for drinks at this really cool Salsa restaurant/bar. We had a BLAST!!!
I originally planned to wear a red dress but changed my mind at the list minute and opted to wear this jumpsuit that I bought from H&M in October. I still wanted to wear a touch of red, so I wore a red skinny belt and these shoes that are to DIE for. I bought them from Heels.com and the shoe is a nude color with a hint of blush. The back of the shoe is the best part!!! It’s like a lace-up detail with red suede peeking out behind the lace-up. If your a size 7 and interested in purchasing, you can here. The size 7 is the only size left. The picture makes the shoe look like a nude color, but it does have that hint of blush color in the shoe, which I think is pretty. I was shocked when I did get them, but I was still very happy with the shoe. I ordered them online about 6 or 7 months ago, so that explains why they only have 1 size left. LOL!
As you know, today is Day#1 of the Shoeper Shoe Challenge… 1 down, 89 more to go!
OK! OK! So you know how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE shoes, right? Well, I have decided to join a great challenge, The Shoeper Shoe Challenge and it’s going to be sooo much FUN and going to go towards a great cause when it ends. This screams a challenge that I’m sooo interested in and sooo going to love! Basically, I have to count all of my shoes ( 90 PAIR!!) and starting tomorrow, 2/14/2011 I have to wear ALL 90 pairs of my shoes by the time the challenge ends, 2/14/2012. I can still buy shoes throughout the year and just change my shoe count as I purchase new ones. Here’s the great part… if there are ANY shoes that I don’t wear within this year time frame, I HAVE TO GIVE THEM TO CHARITY (the shoe(s) that I don’t wear)! AWESOME, right????
Here are are the rules in more detail:
- I must wear every pair of shoes/boots I own before the end of the challenge. (And it doesn’t matter whether you own five pairs or five hundred – everyone is welcome!)
- I must take photos wearing each pair of shoes as “evidence”. (Full length outfit shots only: photos showing just my feet don’t count!)
- Each week Shoeperwoman will publish a roundup of participants’ photos from the past seven days, with a link back to all participants blog (if they have one: if not, their welcome to just send their photo to shoepershoechallenge @gmail.com). If anyone doesn’t want to take photos they are welcome to join in anyway, but they obviously won’t be able to be included in the weekly roundup.
- Any shoes that I haven’t worn by the end of the challenge must be disposed of: use ‘em or lose ‘em… sell them, donate them, bin them – it’s up to you.
***I’ve decided to donate mine to charity!
If you are interested in joining this awesome challenge, be sure to head on over to Shoeper Shoe Challenge for all of the details and how you can sign up. Happy Shoe Challenge!!!!
