Okay, this might be so hard to believe considering I run a couple of fashion blogs, but in the past year, I haven’t done much shopping.
Don’t get it twisted, I have copped a couple of things here and there, but not as much as I have in past years. The main reason is because earlier this year, I moved into a new apartment of my own with no roommate. So, I found myself hitting the home decor aisles and sections way more than the clothing and accessories rack.
However, now that my place is pretty much set, in the upcoming year I plan to devote more time and attention to re-stocking my closet. Fortunately, Santa gifted me with plenty of gift cards this season! Just what I wanted!
One of the first gift cards I plan to drain is one valued at $50 that my brother’s girlfriend(Smooches, Tess!) dropped in my stocking. The first thing I grabbed with it are these Lace Allure booties. Obviously, these are a soft knock-off of Louboutins, but I so can’t wait for these to arrive next week!
After giving myself a pedicure last night, I was wishing that the warm, sunny weather was back so I could show off my lovely shaped hot pink toes! However, after seeing these hot Louboutin Bobo booties, I think I want the cold weather to stay. Well, stay until these shoes are knocked-off by another line. *fingers crossed*
In the meantime, I’m just loving the tan and white, which makes it appropriate for spring, too! Plus, seriously, how can you not swoon for the leather pyramid studs?!
Come on Steve Madden or whoever, and make the knock offs, already, because my bank account can’t take a $1,395 punch right now!
Yesterday, here in Memphis, we experienced 60 degree temps, which was a nice break from the 20 and 30 degrees we’ve been experiencing for the past couple of weeks. Although the first day of winter is less than a week away and we haven’t yet to get the true winter weather, I am already feeling the urge to start putting together items I want for spring.
Actually, the first week after Christmas, I start trying to pinpoint the styles and trends I want to embrace in the spring. One place I have already I have pinpoint for shoes is Nine West. I am in just in love with their Fresh Start collection(above) that features feminine and floral embellishments and designs, but mixed with black and pewter styles and fabrics.
Check out the other collections that will begin to hit stores in February!
This weekend, reality star Kim Kardashian was spotted shopping at Barney’s in LA while a pair of Dolce Vita Josey boots that stole a piece of my heart. I’m loving these boots!
Kim has a lot to be happy about these past couple of days. Yesterday, her boyfriend, Reggie Bush and his Saints teammates continued to be undefeated and season 4 of her E! show Keeping Up with The Kardashians premiered. Plus, early this morning, her big sis, Kourtney, gave birth to a healthy baby boy! Bountiful blessings all around this holiday season for Kim and her fam. Also, she has those fabulous Dolce Vita boots!
I’m about 95% done with my Christmas shopping.*pats self on the back* I just need to find a couple of things for my mom that will knock her socks off. I have an idea, I just need to put it motion. Pronto.
Although I’m almost through scratching people off my list shopping list, my personal wish list is getting longing and I just added these Dolce Vita Watson booties.
I know, I know, there are plenty of knock offs and variations of this booties clomping around the fashionphere, but my mind, body, soul and closet want these! Unfortuantely, they are out in my size at 80s Purple. So, I’m going to embark on mid-day online hunt for a pair of these Watson booties in a 9. Wish me luck!
