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 do, I really do! A couple years ago(whenever Gossip Girl premiered), when preppy was the way to look, I had a gaggle of cardigans in various colors and styles. However, I just took a cardigan inventory in my closet this weekend and was shocked to find I only had 3 cardigans (a black, white, and light teal one with antique lace trim and pearl buttons). How the hell did that happen and why isn’t Old Navy offering their cardigans for $5 this week, because their Christmas sales have been rocking my frugalista-esque mind!
Anyway, like usual when I notice I’m low on something, I start to look and conquer more. So, needless to say, I spent most of my online time this weekend looking for more cardigans. One that really caught my eye was this Marc by Marc Jacobs Maxine Sweater. Isn’t adorable with its plaid ruffle around the waist and chic rib action. I will admit that my waist and I laughed at the thought of me adding a plaid ruffle around my already holiday expanding waist, but still…isn’t it adorable!
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!
