Blood in the Water

This bracelet is soooo amazing. Disney Couture is genius and I'm sure now that I've stumbled upon this I'm going to obsess over the whole website. I'm typically drawn to the cinderella jewels but the unexpectedness of this bracelet just got to me. I need it, but I will never convince myself to spend that much on one bracelet. But it is just in time for Shark Week!

The Ideal

This girl, spotted at Paris Fashion Week by Swagger 360, if my new style inspiration. I know her outfit is almost painfully simple but something about her makes me incredibly excited to find a similar jacket and adopt her attitude. Perfect.

Deja Vu

Remember those amazing Dsquared shoes that pulled me out of my coma, and that I then posted a follow up about another version on Sea of Shoes? Well, while browsing one of my blog staples, Haute Macabre, I discovered something kind of overwhelming. FIrst, that there are numerous other versions of this amazing shoe,

and Second that they are from this runway show that I posted about, and that slightly underwhelmed me. I'm not completely blind, I actually did go back to my original Dsquared post to look for the shoes before posting about them for the first time, but I didn't see anything familiar. You have to look closely at the retreating models to see but they're there. This new discovery definitely changes my entire thoughts on this show, upgrade.

Shoe Swagger

Haute Macabre recently linked me to this street style blog Swagger 360. While a lot of it is men's style, I find that to be inspiring as well, and there are a frequent amount of women posts as well. I, of course, was specifically interested in the shoes, and here are some of my favorites:

The other day I posted a pair of amazing Dsquared shoes as seen on Jak & Jil that completely inspired me to start blogging more frequently. Then today, as I was catching up on Sea of Shoes, I happened upon a picture of the exact same shoes, plus another version.

Here is a close-up of the heel on the original pair. I am still amazed by the beauty of this heel. I love how they made it authentic looking with the wear marks.

While I still like the original strappy pair better, this bootie version is just as interesting, and I would just die if I ever got the chance to own either one.

Face Time

I absolutely LOVE these Dolce and Gabbana wedges. They remind me so much of a painting. I wouldn't even be able to reference an artist because, well I know absolutely nothing about art or painters, but I love the unexpectedness of this shoe. From far away it looks like a simple black wedge, but it is such a pretty close-up. They really make me want to go to a museum.

Proenza Shoeler

Lame title, I realize, but onto more important matters. I seem to always be drawn to interesting shoes, as I'm sure you've already noticed. I don't think about it when I first save the pictures, but I never gravitate towards simple shoes. Just the other day I was at Target with my sister and a friend when they started talking about a pair of basic black heels, something I don't think I'd ever spend money on. Ever since reading Victoria Beckham's book "That extra half an inch" I've wanted a pair of tan heels to 'elongate my legs', but I've never actually bought a pair. In my mind, if I'm going to go through the pain that heels give me, I'm at least going to have something interesting on my feet. I don't know how people do it, but I can't even make it through a night at a club in heels, let alone a day of traipsing around NYC, Paris, or wherever the fashionistas happen to be at the moment. In closing I'll leave you with a picture of the shoes that inspired this rant. Wedges by Proenza Schouler, seemingly made by small bungee cords, sigh.

We just recently got an H&M here in Orlando, and not to complain or anything, but I really wish it was a Topshop. Unfortunately the only way I'll be getting these f/w10 Sam Edelman-esque boots is a trip to NYC and a winning lottery ticket. sigh.

P.S. Does anyone else think that the blonde model in the other pictures looks a lot like Lauren Utter from cycle 10 of ANTM?!

I've been in kind of a no-blogging coma lately. All I really do is work and spend my tiny paycheck, extremely depressing. But I've also been thinking a lot about my own personal style and I have decided that it is time for me to do some more interesting things with my wardrobe. I surround myself with these beautiful images of fashion and sometimes I think I don't really see them. I've created an inspiration board and I've been trying to only buy things I think are worthy of my new outlook.

But onto more important things, what shook me out of my fashion funk? Why, shoes of course!

These Dsquared stunners, to be exact.
