Just one more sandal shout out

Loeffler Randall's Selma Asymmetrical Sandal - I'm crazed over this sandal.


Ancient Greek Sandals

I've recently discovered the brand Ancient Greek Sandals, since the winged gladiator is all the rage right now. I like the winged gladiator, but their other sandals are so perfect that I'm becoming obsessed. I like everything so much I can't pull the trigger on what I want! I think you'll notice that I really gravitate towards Copper...check out their other cute shoes - http://www.ancient-greek-sandals.com/default.aspx

Customize Your Vara or Varinas!

You can now customize your Ferragamos! They are $550 a pair, but it is fun to dream! I noticed that they only offer you complimentary colors though. Depending on what you choose, they only give you colors that "go" - I guess they don't want us to go too crazy. However, I'd love to have a turquoise Varina with a sun or mushroom bow. Below are some that I've been playing with (I guess I must really love that brownish color!)

This is the punk glam I expected to see at the Met Gala

I was flipping through some of last year's Vogues last night and I came across this article about the rise of the Asian model. Interesting article, but content aside the styling for this spread is really dead on punk glam...you would think we would have seen more of this styling at the gala.

The Best Looks of the Met Gala 2013...

in my opinion...that being said, I think nearly everyone missed the mark on the whole punk theme...

Katy Perry

Minka Kelly

Linda Evangelista 

Sienna Miller

Leslie Mann

Cara Delevigne

Ashley Olsen

I think Sienna Miller really hit the nail on the head as did Cara Delevigne, but my favorite was Katy Perry (pictured with Dolce and Gabbana), because I love Dolce & Gabbana! Look at Ashley Olsen, rocking a caftan of her own design! She was on the worst dressed lists a lot places, but I refuse to hate on a caftan.

Style Inspiration: Edith Head

I have this really amazing picture of famous costume designer Edith Head somewhere wearing a Mexican inspired outfit, and I can't find it anywhere! I've been wanting to refer to it for my own fashion inspiration for Spring. Anyway, while I was rooting through images of her online and I found several more pictures that reflect the style idea I'm looking for. Here is one from her home Casa Ladera in Holmby Hills.

Dolce & Gabbana Spring RTW 2013

When I first saw this collection I loved it. I loved it so much that I was overwhelmed by it. I decided to take a breather and come back to it. I revisited today and oh my god, I'm still in love! If I could wear nothing else for the rest of my life but this collection I would. I love the relaxed cuts and occasional rough edge mixed with the wild prints and colors, this truly captures the aesthetic of an over the top island lifestyle (inspired by Sicily). I think that the clothes speak for themselves far better than I ever could.

Honor - Pre-Fall 2013

Modern Garden Party with a Twinge of Nostalgia...this collection sort of reminds me of a reined in Valentino? I love Valentino and I think that is why I love this so much. I feel like it references couture, but is wearable? I don't know what I'm talking about, but I like Honor.
