{Weekend InStyle…}

There is no better way to start your weekend than to come home and find that in your mail box awaits a lovely gift.  Just for renewing what is considered every fashionistas bible, InStyle Magazine, I received this sweet little red InStyle canvas tote.  Isn’t it simply adorable?  So looking forward to taking it out for a spin this weekend.  Heh!  It really is all about the little pleasures in life.  😉

My treasures, wishing you a weekend that will begin and end in great style.  Cheers Mon Cheri!!!

{These shoes were made for Holiday shopping…}

Shoes:  Charlotte Russe Patent Peep-Toe Sueded Wedge – 8 / $28

Happy Saturday my darlings! My hope is that you are having a weekend as delicious as I am. 

So far it has been a fantastic weekend with family, friends and all the lovely Holiday Fêtes.  Sprinkled in between all the good cheer though are those manic moments of Holiday shopping that I am sure a few of you are experiencing also.  Unfortunately, I’m one of those last minute shoppers. Gah!

Fighting the crowds at the mall is not my idea of a good time, which means I’ll need plenty of motivation to get all of my shopping done before Christmas.  So perhaps power shopping calls for super power pumps?  At least that is what I told the Husband when I donned on the high tower of all pumps.  Heh!  Does it make more sense to shop in “comfortable” shoes while hunting for my next purchase? Perhaps but quite frankly I’d prefer to be fashionable than frumpy while I scour the city for those super fabulous great deals.  😉

Enjoy the rest of your weekend my precious ones!

{‘Tis the season to buy shoes…}

Happy Friday sweet peas!!!  The Holiday crazies is upon us and we are now in mid shopping mode.  I’m not sure what has possessed me this month but my obsession with shoes has reached an all time high this season.  Welcome to my world of BOGO (By One, Get One).  I have no business being at the Mall but I made the dreadful mistake of going during lunch this week.  I must have blacked out somewhere along the way because the next thing I know I  am back in my car with four boxes of fabulous footwear.  Holy mother of shoes!  

Shoes:  Charlotte Russe Shoes – 8.0 /  $30

Wishing you an amazing weekend my darlings!

Wordless Wednesday

There is nothing like a little shopping therapy…

The End of My Affair with Jimmy Choo (Shoes)

Dear Choo: (You know you love it when I call you by your pet name)

The Husband is on to us.  I can no longer parade you around town or meet you in clandestine boutiques.  I no longer care how many incentives you throw my way.  The Husband is no longer buying into my “oh, this old thing?” routine.

You barely ever go on sale and let’s not discuss how you’re cutting into my slush fund.  Yes, I know that we looked good together.  You, on my feet, were all splendid and fabulous but I can’t afford to take you to all those lavish affairs anymore.  You’re high maintenance and require too many accoutrements.  It’s almost impossible to dress you down without looking like I tried too hard.  Your demands on my time and money are bordering on the absurd and frankly, my interest now lay in another, less costly, pair of designers.  

I know. Sigh.  My love for you has lasted over a decade but all delicious things must come to an end.  I’ve decided to start dating another name brand.   I only tell you because I don’t want you to see me around town, pairing up with another sexy set of stilettos without informing you first.  So, for now, I’m calling it quits.  No, no…I don’t need your new flyer to yet another flagship store.  You no longer hold the same allure for me.   When the economy improves, perhaps, mon ami, we can date again.  But, until then lover, back in the box you go.

xoxo,

Josie
