Seeing as it is “Fashion Week Season” I have found myself a little behind with getting around to looking at all the pictures/slideshows and reading articles about the shows that I am interested in. So today I was playing catch-up on the WSJ site checking out their fashion section, reading an article about London’s fashion week when I came across this Burberry Prorsum trench-dress.

To me it was just breath-taking. I can’t get over the shoulders! I mean it’s just so strong and yet undeniably feminine all at the same time. Usually I am not a big fan of lavender but it just works so well for this piece. Gah! Just love it and wanted to share a little tiny piece of my fashion love with you all. Happy Monday!

I Die. OMG I Die.

Talk about a fabulous deal! Today on they were featuring select Oh Deer! shoes for $15.95. That is more than 75% off retail in some cases! Now if you don’t know Oh Deer! they are great shoes that retail for well over $100 in almost all cases. I have never bought a pair but I have tried a few on and they are defiantly well made and comfortable shoes, not to mention cute. So obviously when I saw this sale I got super excited. I couldn’t decide which ones to buy! After much internal debate (and external, thanks B) between styles and colors I ended up buying the Slash sandal in green (I saw these in a boutique a couple of weeks ago on sale but they didn’t have my size) and the Jester mini-wedge in purple. With shipping and tax I spent a total of $41.87. The combined retail price of these shoes is $375. That means I saved over 88% on this purchase!!! Can it get any better? I think not. To make sure you cash in on future sales like this head over to and sign up for their emails. :)

It official, you asked for it. As of this afternoon I will have a total of 91 pairs of shoes! 91! I am totally ridiculous and yet still want more. This is why I had to build a shoecase (more on that later) and its already full! Anyway, how many pairs do you have??

Update: A friend suggested that I throw a 100 party when I reach that mile stone. I think its a great idea so I will keep you all posted ;) Only 9 more to go...

Bring on the Boots!

I definitely caught boot fever this season. We all know that boots are always a part of fall and winter trends but I really feel that this year it really IS all about the boot. We have been seeing such a wide range of styles that it is so easy for anyone to get caught up in the wave. Of course there are the motorcycle boots that I obviously love. But there are also booties, cage styles, over-the-knee, platform, cowboy inspired; the list just goes on and on. I, as always, have a wish list a mile long but I wanted to share just a couple that have really shot to that top of that list. The first is a Calvin Klein over-the-knee boot that I saw in a Dillard’s ad in the September Issue of Vogue (where else?!?). They not only have the great over the knee styling that I love, but they have a great buckle detail that give it just that extra pizazz! The second boot is part of the J. Aldridge by Sea of Shoes collection from Urban Outfitters. I just can’t get over how awesome these look. The peep toe with the lace up front is just sick. So… anyone want to buy me a present?? :)
