Pick Three-Louboutin Edition!

Two shoe posts in a row? Isn’t that kind of boring you say?

Um no. I really really like shoes, and if you do to this post is for you!

Yesterday I saw Gilt Group had Louboutins for sale and I thought I’d play one of my favorite games-what would I buy if money was no object.  Of course the easiest answer is all of them so I limited to three.  One classic, one classic with a twist, and one fashion find.

This classic pump is good for any occasion.  You could wear it with jeans or a ball gown.  Defiantly an all around winner or what some would consider an “investment piece.”

This is classic with a twist.  The overall shape is a classic bootie while the row of buckles take the shoe to the next level from a style perspective.

I actually tore an ad with this shoe out of a magazine months ago.  This shoe is completely beautiful and totally impractical and I absolutely love it.  Sky high heels, bright teal satin that clashes with the red sole, and a big old bow on the back.  What more could a girl want?

Friday Finds

It’s Friday (yay!) so it’s time for a quick roundup of some of my favorite things of the week!

Let’s get started with something important.  Shoes!

I’m totally coveting these Sophia Webster shoes.  The on trend pointy toe, the bright color, and the patent leather, which I am always a sucker for.

If you’re looking for all the fun of the color and shine those shoes provide at a more manageable price point may I suggest a little Sunday Funday from Essie’s latest collection?  This shimmery coral shade screams summer and so does it’s name.

And, because what would summer be without a beach read, I have two new book finds this week (hey, you’ve gotta do something while that nail polish dries).

I picked up Paris by Edward Rutherfurd.  If you have’t read any of this other books (Dublin, London, The Princes of Ireland…) you should check them out.  He takes the history of famous cities and weaves it in with the very human drama of a family.

This isn’t going to be a quick read, but judging by his other books, it should be a good one.

Bonus-this would make a great last second Father’s Day gift and then you could borrow it back from dad when he’s done.  Not that I’m planning on doing that or anything…



And a book that isn’t likely to be a good one for dad, The Devil Wears Revenge.

I’m picking this one up today.  Basically, its the sequel to The Devil Wears Prada.  The book picks up 10 years later with our main character Andy who appears to be living out her dreams running a bridal magazine and marrying the love of her life.  But all is not as rosy as it seems (because, duh, that wouldn’t make much of a book) and Andy has to go back and confront her devil.  Looking forward to reading this one.


What are your favorite finds of the week?



What could be more chic than custom shoes?




Sort of a trick question because of course, the answer is nothing-unless you answered custom shoes at half price.

Living Social has a deal for Chromatic Gallerie this week-50% off your order.  I’d never heard of this company before but as a shoe lover it seemed like it was my duty to check it out.  The shoes come in three different heel heights, 45 colors, and 4 different materials.

Although the styles are more basic than groundbreaking, they would be perfect for brides and bridesmaids -they even offer discounts when you buy multiples of the same shoe!
