Siren made for Miss KL is the best shoe ever!!! It’s an interesting creeper style shoe with a Lucite ombre platform sole. I was very excited when I received the box in the mail. I wasn’t expecting it actually be  so heavy, however, they weigh in a whopping 21 lbs. I know this because I weighed myself and then calculated the weigh gain. Crazy, I know.

he had an obession with shoes(particularly impractical shoes)
he loved shoes like Imedla Marcos(especially impractical shoes)

A fellow blogging friend of mine, had  offered to take some pictures for me. Checkout InstantMilk‘s Blog! Thank you so much for taking the pictures.

What I’m Wearing:

ALLSAINTS Payne Mac Jacket- Great Trench

Jeffrey Campbell for Miss KL Siren- Lucite is heavier than you think when you used as a sole for your shoe!


It’s Almost That Time……

If you live on the New England or the Mid-West, it’s almost that time of year as you know where the seasons begin to turn and change. That time of year we almost always dread. I’ve always said “The 4th of July signals the beginning of the end of Summer”, with that being said, it’s time to move on to fall things.With fall brings us different approaches to our fashion.

I actually like the idea of dressing up in coats and vests. However, I haven’t found anything vest-wise that actually stands out. I still for some reason want an Adrienne Landau Rabbit fur vest. They look killer!!! Sorry, PETA. I found a few coats that I absolutely adore though.

With the exception of the DSquared Jacket that you see several times, the jackets typically range from about $60-$370.

The DSquared2 runs about $1570 at Saks……..Swipe that plastic baby!

I’m going to enjoy the rest of this New England summer while it’s here, I just got into the fall spirit when I got a head cold due to this drastic weather change. Enjoy the rest of your summer!



London Fashion Week: Spring Summer 2013

Hopefully, we survive 12/21/2012 that way we are able to enjoy some of the amazing things that are coming out of London Fashion Week for the Spring Summer 2013. From Phillip Treacy’s impeccable millinery skills that honor the late Michael Jackson to the funky fresh throwback to the 80s collection of Topman Designs. 

I find that as I’ve gotten older I’ve become a little more reserved in what I tend to wear. I definitely am not as bold as I used to be in certain aspects of clothing. At 26, I probably should be wearing whatever I want and I do but only when the time and place calls for it. However, I really do appreciate really well constructed garments of clothing. The craftsmanship that goes into the work that these people create to inspire people’s everyday style from all walks of life is just amazing. Truly talented people. 

Rock My World…Alek Wek

If I ever need a special hat to make me feel magical Philip Treacy will be the man that I RUN to. I’m normally not a hat person but the art of millinery is one that I could definitely begin to appreciate. I watched the runway show to this collection because it was a homage for Michael Jackson. It was more than that. Words can truly not describe the talent and time that went into this collection. Lady Gaga, was definitely the right choice to open the show. A bursting pink bubble but actually she looked good. 

Below is the link to the show…Enjoy!

….cause this is THRILLER…..Actually,it’s the original red jacket!!

TopShop presents TopMan for Spring Sumer 2013….and as usual I’m only a few months late on catching this one. This collection reminds me of the 80s. When looking at this show and the images, I immediately get drawn into the masculinity and the femininity of the collection. The colors strong and bold, yet I find a soft quality about them. One of my favorite looks is reminiscent of the neon pink suit Donatella Versace had in the collection for H&M. It’s a great fun summer short suit! 

Something About the 80s

I couldn’t decide between Alexander McQueen or Moschino Cheap & Chic….but I went with Moschino. I’ll post the link and you’ll understand why. Maybe it was the fact that Aluna George gave a live concert and did a rendition of “This Is How We Do It” and totally was able to manipulate the lyrics to talk about Moschino. I really think it has to do more with the presentation of the show and just the fact that they have a quirky style for a very modern woman who isn’t afraid to take risks in the she wears. However, McQueen’s collection for both men and women for 2013….all I can say is OH MY GOD! for the Moschino Cheap&Chic

All I Can Hear is Austin Powers!!
