cl's for sale!!!!


I got these awesome Christian Louboutin peep toe booties for Christmas and they are too small :( I searched online and in San Fran, and they are sold out everywhere! My heart is breaking, but before I return them I figured I would see if anyone would like them. If you do please e-mail me at and we can discuss price. Here's a little bit about them:

Brand: Christian Louboutin
Size: 38/8 (but they are a size too small...fits more like a 37/7)
Heel Height: 4 1/2"
Price Tag: $965 (this is the retail, not my price)
Upper Material: Suede

These are fabulous, FABULOUS booties that are pretty much sold out everywhere. If I can't have them I would love for them to end up with someone who will appreciate them as much as me ;)

cyber monday



old navy sweater, express vest, urban pants, dolce vita boots, ??? scarf

I didn't participate in Black Friday this year (South Carolina isn't exactly known for its shopping) but to make up for it, I did participate in Cyber Monday. I got these Dolce Vita boots, and for a steal I might add. I bought the same pair a year ago in black and paid more than double for them! Cyber Monday is really shaping up to be one of my favorite days of the year ;)

I wish everyone safe travels this Holiday. I'm headed to Cali on Thursday!

jeans and tees

j crew tee, joes jeans, kenzie booties

I typically don't wear tees, but I am all over the embellished ones this fall/winter. I think this one is perfect for the holidays because the design reminds me of a reindeer ;)

12 days of christmas


Day 1- Vintage Green Statement Necklace (from, $41) This is the first statement necklace I have seen within my limited budget.

Day 2- J Brand Jeans (from, $170) I really need skinny blue jeans b/c, well...I don't have any! I like J Brand's but I would settle for more affordable J Crew's.

Day 3-Belted Sweater Coats/Cardigans (from, $26) I can't get enough of these!!!!!!!!!!

Day 4- Harvest Berry Candle (from, $9.50) I can always use candles....only requirement MUST SMELL GOOD AND STRONG!

Day 6- Christian Louboutin Miss 120 (from, $1075) I love booties and I love CL. I think these were made for me.

Day 7- Ray Ban Sunnies (rayban,com, $159) I desperately need some sunglasses! Squinting is not cute, and gives you wrinkles.

Day 8 -OPI in Yoga-ta Get This Blue (, $9) I never thought I would wear blue polish, but I think I am ready to give it a shot.

Day 9 - Polka Dot Tights (, $13) American Apparel, Urban Outfitters, H&M...I've heard all these places carry dotted tights and I have yet to find them in any store :(

Day 10- Marc Jacobs Lola (, $48) I like the bottle more than I like the scent.

Day 11- Scarf/Shawl/Pashmina (, $11) Scarves make everything better. Another item I can't get enough of...

Day 12- Card Case (, $4.50) I'm not good with wallets. This is a chic alternative.

black and blue



zara leather jacket, h&m dress, hue navy tights, jessica simpson booties

This is what I wore out a few weekends ago. I've had this dress since the summer, but I've been waiting for cooler weather to wear it because I wanted to pair it with a blazer or jacket. I don't really like the one shoulder look on me (perhaps I just haven't found the right dress) but I still like the look of the asymmetrical neckline peeking out behind the leather jacket.

On a random anyone out there that likes to read, check out my friends website! You can purchase books directly from this site:

sky blue





zara blazer, tj maxx plaid top, old navy white shirt, f21 leggings, steven boots

How gorgeous is the blue sky in the last picture? This past Sunday was pure perfection! The sun was shining, there wasn't a cloud in the sky, my boyfriend was in town and I had a yummy lunch at my favorite burger boutique!


Sorry for the picture overload but I feel like I have to take advantage when my photog is in town ;) And even with him being here, I still managed to include a random picture I took myself of my shoes and bag. I guess that is just the control freak in me. Ha!

Happy December BTW. Where in the world has the year gone?

eat drink and be merry

zara leather jacket, urban jeans and top, 9west booties

This is what I threw on to grab a quick bite to eat tonight. I'm headed to Myrtle Beach in the morning, so I guess I should keep it short and sweet, and head to bed.

Happy Thanksgiving!

"just get me a really big closet"

So Carrie opted for the big closet instead of the big ring. I'm personally greedy, and want both! My current closet is a nightmare, and I can never find anything in it. I would probably feel the need to shop less, if I could actually see what I own. Here are some celeb closets that may make your heart skip a beat:

olivia wilde-i adore this closet, that also serves as an office for her. it is simple and i find it so charming. this would be my sanctuary.

kimora lee simmons-it's a little gaudy and cluttered for my taste, but i do think she is so fab!

mariah carey-awww, the shoes. i mean this is amazing. it's a little girly, but if it comes with all the shoes in my size, i'll take it!

nicky hilton-this is perfect! i love the dark floors, in contrast with the white chair and furniture, and how cute is the black & white entry door that brings it altogether? love it!

paula abdul-my favorite part about this closet is that she has a place for her belts. all of mine are on hangers and diffucult to get to. also love the space for her sunglasses...

christina aguilera- this is the picture that inspired this post! my taste is definitely not this bold and in your face, but i think this closet is to die for! i love the ladder. definitely something that would come in handy for me.

girls night out




zara blazer, f21 tank and skirt, jessica simpson booties

This is what I wore Friday night to dinner, drinks and lounging at the W.

Purple and red is my MOST favorite color combination, yet I never really manage to wear it. I’m happy my fabulous, fabulous time out with my girlfriends this past weekend afforded me the opportunity to explore this color combination!

Originally, I planned on pairing this look with strappy heels but I thought the outfit was super girly and I decide to edge it up a bit with my new Jessica Simpson booties. Never in a million years would I have thought that I would wear anything with the name Jessica Simpson branded on it, but I must say, she’s inching up there with BCBGirls as my go to place for affordable footwear.

anthropologie dress, f21 cardigan, thrifted belt, kenneth cole men's watch

In an effort to not give up on the blog, and make things more exciting for me (and hopefully you) I'm going to start posting slightly bigger pictures! Maybe, eventually, I will go even bigger, but baby steps for now. Anyway, this is what I wore to work on Monday. I've had this dress for a really long time. In fact, I bought it right before I went to Paris back in 2006, and I still love it just as much as I did back then. There's nothing like a piece of clothing that doesn't go out of style.

this is it

wendy katlen leather bomber, ??? scarf, urban pants, dolce vita boots, elliott luca bag

I went to see This Is It, and this is what I wore. Nothing special by any means, but when I knew I was going to see the movie, I also knew I was going to wear my Wendy Katlen leather bomber jacket, that my coworker so lovingly calls my "Michael Jackson jacket". Nothing else would have been more appropriate ;)

BTW if you haven't seen the movie, GO! I promise, you will not be disappointed.

mini skirts and leather...on sunday ;)

zara leather jacket, f21 skirt, mia shoes

This is what I wore to the movies, not to church, on Sunday. I saw Good Hair (still laughing), and I also perused H&M (the fall collection is great), and had a yummy Asian lunch (the crab and cheese rolls were interesting).

Did I mention the H&M fall collection was fab? I think the end of my shopping diet is very near. I've been too good for too long!

grey day

express (minus the leather) vest, ???? scarf that i love, urban jeans, steven boots

Grey is one of my favorite neutrals, but it's not translating so well here. The pictures look and feel really dull, or shall I say grey. I think a lot of it has to do with the lighting, and my crappy camera, unfortunately. Good thing I wore a bright scarf to perk things up a bit.

i die

(images from netaporter)

...for these Christian Louboutin oxfords. I want them soooooooo bad, and I know I have better ways to spend my money at the moment but, I DIE. I'm trying my best not to think about them, but I see them in my dreams at night. The plan is to check them out in person and cross my fingers that 1) they are sold out OR 2) they won't have my size OR 3) I think they are hideous in person (not likely). If none of this turns out to be the case, I will start taking donations...or keep dreaming.

j crew cardi and top, zara blazer, urban pants, mia oxfords, marc jacobs bag

fading colors

zara blazer, julie haus dress, christian louboutin shoes, ??? envelope clutch

I wore this Julie Haus ombre dress out lounging in Boston last weekend. I love the print, but the sleeves are kind of weird to me so I always wear it with a blazer or a cardigan and it hides the print :-( I should probably take it to my seamstress to see what she can do about the sleeves.

Here's a picture from the one time I wore the dress without a cardigan or a blazer.
