Marais’ spring/ summer collection is pretty darn adorable.
Is that post title a tad too dramatic? It’s possible.
My favorite red mary jane heels have taken a turn for the worse. After skipping through many a puddle, the heels appear to be disintegrating, and the material on the front of the shoes is falling off. (The stereotype of excessive rain in Seattle, dear readers, is based in some pretty serious reality.)
I’m thinking these vegan green heels by Olsen Haus might be a good replacement. I’m willing to spend some extra $$ if I think they’ll last for a while. Any suggestions for good places to look for cute new colorful pumps? lv, molly
Okay, so maybe I am looking at Marais’ spring/ summer ’10 shoe collection when I should be writing an essay. Once you see how pretty they are maybe you won’t fault me. xo, m
I’m back! During my New York trip, Karolina and I went to Saks to look at shoes and big, floppy hats. I found many to my liking, in particular a wide-brimmed blue hat that carefully straddled the line between fabulous and hideous. (Some might say it was clearly on the latter side; I’d disagree.) I maintained my sanity and left empty-handed save for the perfume samples that are as ubiquitous at Saks as candy on Halloween.
My favorite by far were the shoes by French designer Christian Louboutin. These little beauties run for too much, but they made me ooh and aw. And by “ooh and aw,” I mean they made me want to perform a choreographed dance complete with jazz hands.
Later I’ll post photos from the trip and regale you with tales of drinking with an ex-professor, going to Ellis Island (where I fell asleep on a bench, much like an immigrant of the early 20th Century), and of my brief encounter with Paul Dinello, who played Geoffrey Jellineck on Strangers With Candy. (It was so brief that it doesn’t merit mention, but it made me giggle. A lot.)
I hope you’ve enjoyed the beginning of fall. We’re entering the season of scarves, pumpkin pie, wool coats, cappuccinos, and beautiful leaves. I couldn’t be happier. xo, m
Fabulous shoes inspired by menswear. All shoes by Anthropologie. (I tried my best to pick the less expensive ones, so that they may be feasible… but we all know that Anthro is too spendy for the times, sadly, and we’ll have to live vicariously through the models.) Happy friday, all! Enjoy the pretty shoes. xo-m
