Wrap It Up

I saw these shoes the other day at Aldo and they keep popping back into my head, the side view in my opinion looks much better in real life.. I think they loosely remind me of these awesome creations by Alaia on Emmanuelle:

Damn those are some hot shoes.

photos from jak and jil, where else?

Defense Accessories

I might just feel a little safer, and more dangerous wearing this awesome ring:
Im so addicted to these dangerous looking items, spiked cuffs, studded everything, etc, etc.

Ring from, $260

Yay For Friday's

I went downtown again today, Im kind of becoming addicted to it, everything always just seems so much bigger and better down there. I've really been wanting to buy some new shoes, boots more specifically, but I haven't been having much luck with the usual stores. I find it always seems a lot the same, and I want something different for a change. I did see some lace up wedges at H&M for only 44.00, they come in brown and grey, but then I think that nothing quite compares to these:

Chrome Marni Wedges from Sea of Shoes.. Im so jealous of her whole collection, but I think these are one of my favorites.

Also obsessing over these boots on Taylor Tomasi, I seriously want these:

McQ Alexander McQueen For Target

As Im sure everyone has heard Alexander McQueen was named the next designer for Target back in the fall. But first previews have finally come, and I think they look pretty exciting.
These were my favorites from the first looks:

Probably my favorite out of the bunch
Not so much the dress as the studded denim jacket =)

View the rest of the looks which include a cool jumpsuit, at nitrolicious. So what do you think?

Everywhere Is White

Nope it's not snow this time, it's fog, Im starting to feel incredibly claustrophobic, plus I almost got lost on daily walk, so anytime this fog is ready to leave (its been about 4 days now) I will be happy with that. Anyways, I Hope you are all enjoying your weekends, my weekend plans involved buying things. I feel very withdrawn from shopping since school started. So yesterday I went downtown, sadly I didn't really find much, except for a leather jacket, on sale for $345.. regular about $550, but I still couldn't bring myself to buy it, despite how amazingly buttery it was.

Today I had better luck though, I popped into H&M and they had about 10 racks of buy one/get one free! So I found a blazer for $20, and got a $15 light pinky peach tee for free! I was actually quite pleased with the pale peach because I never thought I could posssibly wear such a light pastel color considering I myself, could challenge my background in an ultimate pale showdown. I was however bummed when I saw a cute pair of grey lace up wedges on display and they were the last pair left, apparently, they dont sell items on their mannequins. In my opinion, if you don't have it in stock.. dont advertise them in the window, maybe Im asking for too much, I dont know.

Also Im currently obsessed with this shade of nail polish:

OPI-Brand New Skates, *edit, decided to add my own photo instead of one from the internet, because the color is much darker on my nails. though demonstrates nail colors fairly accurately and much more clear than I ;)

I Need This Too..

So I've decided Im still pretty unsure with which new bag I should get, but while wasting too much time on shopbop, I saw this Alexander Wang bag, and I absolutely love it! The only thing is, they advertise it.. but don't sell it, and I havent seen it sold anywhere else, perhaps its not out yet?
At this current rate though, I dont think I will ever be able to decide.. I like the boots too =)

Latest Obsession

American Apparel interlock mini skirt in black, so simple and plain, but it goes with just about anything, I got it for Christmas and have been wearing it more and more everyday. Im thinking about getting it in another color, the selection isnt that great, but im pretty sure I saw a black lame-ish one that I might possibly go for =)
I wore this tonight with black tights, a loose grey top, my black diesel booties, and my wilfred jacket for a girls night =) I know, what can I say, I love color.

Winter Wonderland pt.2

A couple of photos from the lovelyy white Christmas we had, and we've gotten even moree snow since then, even cancelling my first day of school! =) I am definitely a fan of snow it makes everything so gorgeous, and Im still amazed at the amount we got, I cant ever remember having this much snow and having it stick around for so long. Most of my fellow west-coaster's have been hoping for our usual rain though, and they have gotten it indeed. We now have rain warnings, it poured all day today, turning all the lovely snow into slush and making a complete disaster of everything. Im not a fan of the slush, I attempted going outside today, what a silly, silly idea. I got soaked. Not fun, but I decided I needed some rainboots, as much as I dislike them, it has definitely become a necessity. I had no luck though, because Im not about to pay $60 for rainboots, which is about the only kind the mall had in stock.
*note- very happy with my new camera =) Ty Santa, Im still trying to figure it all out, but so far, so good =)

If I Had Thousands...



All Balmain, pictures from, a website which I can only assume was created to torture people like myself.

Sigh. One can dream can't they?
