Spring has Sprung

Spring is just around the corner, and I have to say, I can not wait! It has been a long and cold winter. One other thing I can't wait be employed! I just accepted an internship for the spring/summer so I will be a temporary part of the workforce. I have shared before that I actually like dressing up for work and I like the idea of wearing a suit every now and then. But mostly I just miss the pay checks that come along with employment. So since I will be going back to work in a few short weeks, here is what my ideal Spring work outfit would look like.

What would you do?

So I just bought these wedges at DSW.

I had 3 gift/reward/birthday certificates that I needed to use ASAP and I am going to an outdoor wedding back home this weekend where wedges would be perfect. These instantly stood out to me, and I love stand out shoes. The problem is, I don't think I have anything to wear with them. Here is basically what I am working with.

Something like this:

Something like this:

And, something like this:

Yes, I have other dresses, but either their color or their shape have completely disqualified them from consideration.

I think the khaki Safari dress would be perfect with the shoes, but probably not for the wedding. The black dress might also work well, except that its black and the shoes have brown in them. Part of me finds that so wrong. And the navy dress probably wont work at all. So, I guess if I want to wear these shoes, I am going to have to buy a new dress. Not what I want to do. Or I could wear my original dress (not even in the above group) and wear heels that will sink into the grass. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

The shoes were made for...driving?

If you had $6500 and needed a new vehicle, would this be on your list?

According to Splash:
Drivers can really put their foot down driving this electric “shoe car”. The car was designed by a major Chinese shoe-making company, which invited workers to take it for a spin. The shoe car is three meters long and is made from 200ft of of bull leather. It has a top speed of 30km/h and can carry two people. The battery-powered car can run for up to 400km on one charge. A spokesman for the Ao Kang company in Wenzhou, Zhejiang Province, said the car cost around $6,500 (USD) to make. The company is planning to make 40 shoe cars for its large chain stores around China.

So I have finally found the time to post my Oscar favorites from Sunday. Better late than never, right? Well, I guess I was pretty harsh with my judgment because I only had eight.

Mila Kunis, Sandra Bullock, Mandy Moore, Camilla Alves, Jennifer Lawrence, Hailee Steinfeld, Reece Witherspoon, Hilary Swank

Who was your best dressed?

Oscar Host, Anne Hathaway's Brian Atwood pumps

So, unlike some other award shows, shoes rarely get to see the light of day at the Oscars. Long, floor length ball gowns, are typical thus the gorgeous pumps we all know are underneath never get shown. However there were one pair of shoes that did stand out to me during the show, and its probably because she wasn't wearing a gown with them.

About a third of the way through the show, Anne Hathaway took the stage for a humorous solo to poke fun at Hugh Jackman. She was wearing a form-fitting tux and some super sparkly pumps.

Anne Hathaway hosting 2011 Oscars in Swarovski Crystal Brian Atwood pumps

Well, the fine ladies over at FabSugar have identified those fabulous shoes to be Swarovski Crystal covered Brian Atwood pumps. And before you ask, no you can't find them anywhere. They are custom made for Anne herself. But maybe you could take your own Atwoods and crystals and make your very own pair....yeah, probably not.

Cute from Faraway but Faraway from Cute

So I saw this picture of Eva Mendes at the Independent Spirit Awards and I immidieatly noticed her shoes! Here is the thumbnail I saw first:

All I really see is the light tourquise shoes on her tan skin, and I think it's going to be good. Then I get a little closer. 
Still not bad, but I could do without the extra strap thing around her ankle. Then I get way up close.

Ugh, so disappointing! They had so much potential! They compliment her dress well and the color looks good against her skin, but somehow up close they just lose all appeal. 

Update: These shoes are all over the place!

What is your Dream Shoe?

So I have been a bad little blogger and have not been doing my job very well the past few days. This week has been crazy as I try to finish up some papers and prepare for some exams.

So, since I'm a little crunched for time, I want you to tell me what your DREAM shoe is. If money were no object, what shoes would you go out and buy yourself?

Christian Louboutin Patent Rolando
Kinda boring, I know? But, the way I see it, I will get to wear them all the time because they are such a classic style and color. But since money is no object, I will buy two pairs!

Leave your dream shoe in the comments!

Kate Spade: Fall 2011

With just a glimpse of Kate Spade's newest collection, its easy to see her inspiration. I see a little Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, and Jackie-O. I love this classic take on her dresses, bags, and especially the shoes. What do you think?

Trend: Lace

What is more romantic and sexy than lace? I sure can't think of anything. Lately, many designers have been adding the delicate textile to their shoes. It makes sense, when you think about it: what part of your body needs the most help being romantic and sexy more than your feet. I kid, I kid, but these really are lovely shoes.

Hot Shoes Under $50

I don't know anyone who doesn't like to save money, but when it comes to shoes, sometimes my eyes are a little bigger than my wallet. Good thing I have some self control (and no money), or else I would be swimming in shoes I don't really need. Example below:

Ok, maybe I would like that...

Anyways, my point is, you don't have to go broke buying shoes. Here are some hot shoes that all cost under $50.

Michael Antonio Tonell at DSW for $39.95
Dolce Vita for Target Rope Wedges for $29.99
Unisa Brindy Flats at Macys for $48.30
Miss Me Jocelyn-12 at for $19.95

Call It Spring Dajani at JC Penny for $49.99

Now there are no excuses when trying to keep to your budget and stay looking fabulous. Happy Shopping!

Beyonce in Christian Louboutin Daffodile Pumps

Holy Mother of God. My jaw dropped when I saw these gorgeous tourquiose platforms that Beyonce is sporting. I mean...WOW. Those are some serious heels.


These must be the suede version of Louboutin's Daffodile pumps (of course not available to the general public as of yet). Look at how high the platform is - 2.5 inches. So, all you vertically challenged women out there, if you save up $995 you can add 5 inches to your height! What a deal!

Leighton Meester

Check out Leighton's shoes from the Marc Jacobs show.



I am going to assume they are by Marc Jacobs, but you know what assuming does. I think they are incredibly fun, but maybe would be better paired with a simple dress instead of the patterned one she has on.

Correction: Those are Christian Louboutin shoes she has on. 

Wedding Flats

I have the privilege of serving as the Maid of Honor for one of my best friend's wedding this summer. While she has had this wedding planning thing down pat, I did have the chance to help her pick out her attire for the big day. I'd say I have been a pretty good wedding stylist so far, but my next task is to find some flats for her to wear for her reception. Obviously they need to be comfortable, but also something that she will be able to wear again. Here is what I found:

Wedding Flats

No, that is not her dress, but the Badgley Mischka pumps you see there are the ones she will be wearing when she says, "I Do." Aren't they lovely?

Shoe of the Day: Rainbows

The weather has rebounded from ice and snow to sunny and warm! Like the good California girl I am, that means breaking about the sandals. In my professional (aka non-professional) opinion, the best sandals anyone could ever own are Rainbow Sandals.

Yes, they may not be "fashionable" (unless you live in So. Cal.), they may not be pretty, but they are comfortable and they will literally last you forever. If they don't send them back to the Rainbow factory and they will send you a new pair.

And yes, I am wearing my Rainbows today!

BAFTA Best Dressed

Who knew that the BAFTAs (British Academy of Film and Theatre Awards) were this weekend? Yeah, me neither. But there were some beautiful dresses in attendance.

Jessica Alba

Amy Adams

Ema Stone

Annette Bening
