Drumroll Please

If you were paying attention during my last blog I am sure that you figured out that I have at last reached the shoe century club. I now currently own 100 pairs of shoes! As it turns out my wonderfully, fabulous, greatest, boyfriend ever bought me my 100th pair for Christmas and I love, love, LOVE them. They are the Anne Michelle Savoir 27 Black Buckled Ankle Boots! So now I just have to plan the party so stay tuned for details ;)

Site Seeing

Once again I would like to share some great websites that I have come across in all my web surfing.

LuLu's - this shopping site is cute, trendy, and budget friendly. They have everything from dresses, to shoes, to jewelry, to hats. I love their shoe collection, especially their selection under $50! My boyfriend bought me a pair from here for Christmas and they are fabulous (stay tuned for a post).

- this is a great shopping site that is very Anthropologie, but without the extreme prices. I haven't bought anything from here yet, but its only a matter a time because every time I visit I find a slew of things I love. I also like that they have an eco-friendly section.

- I just visited this website for the first time last night, but so far so good. They are currently having a 50% off sale on Fall and Winter styles (hurry it ends 1/10/10) and I ended up snatching up 3 pairs of shoes (including rain boots... FINALLY) for $62. Can you believe that? Cuh-Razy! I will definitely be returning from time to time :)

- Lastly, this website is just for fun time wasting. In the vein of FMyLife, these are just short posts from people all over the world talking about things that happened to them. However, these are much happier in nature... so go on, kill some time!

Hope you all find these just as great as I do, and if you have any sites you love, pass them on!

oh Hermonie, how I love thee

Emma Watson is continuing to front the Burberry campaign this spring and in one shot is wearing the lavender trench I simply covet and blogged about before. Gotta love this girl! Not only is she super cute, can act and model, but she also has her sh*t together (she is attending Brown University) and isn't falling apart like many a famous child star. Keep it up Emma. (Oh, and a side note, that's her brother on the left!)
Can't wait to see Emma and company in the next installment of the Harry Potter movies!

...96, 97, 98, 99....

So this post is a little late but I still wanted to share some of my recent shoe purchases.
Pair 96 is a fabulous pair of Jeffery Campbell Gray Palace Pumps that I found on ebay (brand new in the box)! I ended up winning them for $45... the original retail price is $175. Woo Hoo my first "designer" pair off shoes and for a great price. (Mine are actually a lighter gray than this picture.)

Number 97 are the Steve Madden Laady pumps in black/gray that I purchased during a Black Friday sale on the website. I have to say I am loving these right now as they are super fun with all the straps but the closed toe is great since it has been cold.

A few weekends ago we made a trip to Myrtle Beach, SC for a friend's birthday and we hit up the outlet malls where I scored #98 and #99. Kenneth Cole provided me with these fabulous frilly pair (Unlisted Natural Wonder) for only.... wait for it.... $15!!! Definitely could not pass them up for that price. (Mine are actually a great magenta color.)

Number 99 came to me by pure fate. As my friend and I stepped into BCBG (one of our shared fashion meccas) I just knew that I would be finding something fabulous. Once we made it to the shoes we both reached for this pair of Cras Moonstone wedges breathless. The super friendly sales girl asked if I wanted to try them on and before she could finish asking I just blurted out "size 9"! When she came back she had two boxes (usually not a good sign) and told me they only had a 8.5 and a 9.5 (definitely not a good sign). Before I could totally lose hope I grabbed the 8.5 and slid it on my foot... and lets just say I was feeling a little like Cinderella. It fit! Freakin' fantastic! Obviously they are now mine and I am loving them...I wore them on New Year's Eve to being in 2010 (oh and I finally wore my LC dress from this post) :)

So there they are, putting me that much closer to my shoe party!
