Dreaming of Beautiful Things . . .

Le SpecsSunnies GianvitoRossi Mules ChristinaOrtizRoseGoldDiamondRing2

1. I swear I am turning into a cat lady slowly but surely. Soon everything in my closet will be leopard! Le Specs Hatter Leopard Print Cat Eye Sunnies . . .here.

2. I love the shape of this mule. Haven’t worn mules since the 90’s but I think I would give these babies chance! Gianvito Rossi leather mules here.

3. Oh to don these fingers with such beauty . . . This ring takes my breath away. Simply Divine!! A sculpturally exquisite work of art to be exact! Christina Ortiz 9kt Rose Gold Diamond Ring here.

From the looks of this list my dreams of late seem mildly materialistic! But a girl can’t help wanting to be surrounded by fabulous clothes and accessories can she?

What beautiful things have you been dreaming of lately?

Label Love | Grey City Shoes . . .

GreyCity1_thelookbookphilosophy.com I love the cut out details, rivets and buckles on this bootie that Grey City is debuting for Spring.

I recently discovered Grey City Shoes @ LA Market Week’s Transit Shoe Show last month. Not only do I love their shoes, but I also discovered that Grey City’s designer is a fellow FIDM alumni, which, honestly, made me like the line even more! It’s always inspiring to see other FIDM grads pursuing and achieving their dreams. Grey City is based in Seattle, Washington and is designed by Vikki Andrews, who co-owns the company with childhood friend, Kyle Grant. Vikki debuted the line in the Fall of 2012 and Grey City is now in it’s 4th season. This season’s line features a lot of really great booties with cut out details and buckles. Being that the line is so fashion forward, I thought it would be fun to create some outfits based on a few of their styles to show you how I would wear Grey City . . .

I LOVE the playful gold capped “fringe” and chunky heel, not to mention the gorgeous saffron color. This style is called LEO and it can be found @ solestruck.com

I’ve always been partial to peep toes, and the bowed shape of this heel accentuates the lace-up front and side cut outs of this peep toe bootie spectacularly! This style is called Kennedy and can be purchased here.

Grey City retails from $150-$200 and can be found online @ RevolveClothing.com, SoleStruck.com and Urban Outfitters.

Instantaneous Obsession: Nicholas Kirkwood Patent Leather & Satin Sandals

I would love to throw these on with a pair of black skinnies and a killer off-the-shoulder top . . . . A great printed skirt, a tank and layers of jewelry would look great with these shoes as well. I could do so much with these!!! It makes my mind race!!

Impractically Pretty . . .

For all it’s understated beauty and classic simplicity, this succulent wedge is probably the most impractical shoe I have posted as of yet. (I am classifying yesterday’s wooden wedge as artwork, not footwork). I love the crispness of this shoe, as well as it’s shape and the beautiful detail of the whipstitching engulfing the heel and toe strap. I can easily picture myself in these wedges wearing a great pair of shorts and a lightweight off-the-shoulder sweater, I’ve chosen to accessorize with a select choice of chunky jewelry. I am holding a delicious mixed drink in my hand and throwing my head back in throaty laughter at a witty remark someone made during a summer evening soirée. Unfortunately, I can just as easily see myself screaming in horror (in slow motion) as said drink is “accidentally” knocked from my hand (in slow motion), causing a very ugly spattering of liquor spots and splash marks on my classically understated, light grey suede, $1,025 Alexander McQueen wedges, that I have become abnormally attached to since time of purchase. I wonder if these shoes come with a lifetime guarantee or a “magical cleaning genie” who pops out of a hidden back door of the wedge specifically for these types of messy encounters. Even if the price of this shoe did not leave a dent in my wallet, I would always be apprehensive while wearing, and might possibly have to request an electric shock fence be installed around my feet for every outing.

Purchase yours here, if you dare . . .
