Barking Charm

Woof woof? Marc Jacobs has once again tickled my cutsey fancy, this time with his “Friends of Mine” loafers. I managed to grab these puppies (pun totally intended) at a discount from Piperlime during the holiday season and am completely obsessed with how small and dainty they make my feet look. Maybe it’s the French Bulldog in them? Whatever it is, they make my checkered Vans slip-ons look like giants. Yes, I am back on the Vans train too.

Isabel Marant Memphis Boots Gris

Isabel Marant Memphis

Happy days! I finally own a pair of Isabel Marant boots. I  heard they’d been on sale for awhile so I figured I’d give it a shot and call around – couldn’t hurt right? I ended up finding a pair in my size in Ivory, but due to miscommunication they ended up going to someone else. I’ll admit, I was a little miffed, but maybe it just wasn’t meant to be. Then I found out about Odessa in Portland, and they had my size at 50% off…in GRIS! My fingers dialed at record speeds and they arrived at my doorstep in 3 days. The gris is a rich dark grey, and the studs were done perfectly. They are gorgeous.

Swarovski Erika China Pendant Birthday present from mama! Isn’t she cute?! Swarovski themed their Eliot/Erika special edition collection “Around the World” this time. Available at Swarovski. LOVE the UK one too! 3. Sterling Silver Casted Pine Cone Earrings I didn’t even know there were pine cones this size! A friend from my jewelry class casted these mini pine cones and made them into earrings…and I had to have them. Just in time for the holiday season! Check out her other work here. 4. Painting by Pernille Damgaard My beautiful and talented friend painted and gifted me this work of art last week. 5. Sandro Albatorock Studded Sneakers They’re sneakers with studs, need I say more?

Put A Cap On It

Gold has found it’s way onto my feet. A flash of shiny caught my eye during my usual online perusing last week, and when I saw 1 more available in my size, I pounced. I couldn’t be happier with my decision – these shoes are gorgeous! The contrast of hard (metal) and soft (cow hair) gives it such an interesting texture and I love that it’s so different from the usual plain leather. These shoes are my first Rachel Roy purchase, and I will positively be back for more! Cap-toe shoes seem to be a must this season, but I can definitely see them lasting as a classic staple.     A few alternatives & where to get them: 1.
