SHOES! - A Series: Installment Six

Most recent shoe obsession has been with the brand: Pour La Victoire
Some very cool shoe styles,
Moderately expensive pricing,
(Depends on who you ask)
But here, these are my favorites:

Bess Laser Cut Platform Sandals: 
shop for them here - $203.00 on sale 30% off from $290.00

Cherrie Banded Booties: 
(Personally, the pale blue is my fave) Shop for them here - $306.00 full priced
What do you think? I could probably blow an entire paycheck quite happily on one of these, but then I wouldn't be able to buy one of my dream shoes... (check out my other shoe installments to see what I'm talking about ; ) .)

Just A Smidgen of Time On My Hands...

Occasionally, I whip up a couple of fashion montages. This is what happens..

*All Carven, combinations of summer 2010 , winter 2010 , & ad campaigns - [photo cred: Marton Perlaki]


Okay, so I know that I've said that I was very excited to go see Sex and the City 2. I still am! Although, by now everyone's heard of the catastrophe of which is the sequel. Critics all over are not exactly raving, and quite frankly, quite the opposite. I'm waiting till my friend gets back from a trip to see it with her, but this newfound perspective is leaving me a bit jaded. Well, we shall see...

Tokidoki Okie Smokie

Remember way back when when I mentioned how I really wanted the Kat Von D tattoo liner? Well another version came out except through the new brand being featured at Sephora: Tokidoki. It's cute, it's bright, it reminds me of Harajuku Girls, it has the potential for a quality new pop culture trend.

Meet the characters!

Rondine Love (white)SANDy (dark green)
Sabochan (black)Carina (eggplant)

Donutella (medium pink)Ciao Ciao (periwinkle)
Mostro (spring green)Arlecchino (dark blue)

SJP & the Sex and the City 2 Anticipation

For a quick and slight tangent,...

I am so excited to see Sex and the City 2. If not for the clothes, for the guilty pleasure of watching this group of tight knit friends ("We made a deal ages ago: Men, babies, doesn't matter we're soul mates") conquer love, sexism, sex, and life's ups and downs all in Louboutin and Manolo stilettos and pumps. But yes, mostly for the fashion =)
I'm on the fence with this, but I would really love (or not love) to have this dress for prom. Maybe SJP just makes it look extra fabulous, but it looks like prime prom dress material.
