Yup. Valentino.

photo-2I’ve had a pair of Valentino Rockstud kitten heels for awhile now, the black patent with nude leather trim, you know the ones?  But I was craving another pair.  Something more fun, more edgy.  I saw the leopard rockstuds on presale at Saks, and I waited patiently for them to arrive… six months later.  It was torture!

But now I’m having so much fun pairing them with just about everything… skirts, skinnies, leather, denim, etc.

This is also the first photo “shoot” with my best friend of 15 years, when I was visiting her for Thanksgiving and just knew I had to start this fashion blog.  She told me to stop dreaming, go put on one of my outfit obsessions, and to get my fanny outside so we could start documenting it and making it a reality!

And she was right.  She always is.  Cynthia is an amazing attorney, but she also makes a pretty freakin’ amazing fashion photographer, don’t you think?!?!

There is no one like your bestie to tell you to “suck it in, your stomach looks weird”.  And it’s not even offensive… it’s the person who knows you best, and wants you to look and feel your best 🙂

So, I hope you like the little journey we took in these gorgeous Valentinos… there is more to come!  Stay tuned!

Welcome to my fashion and style blog!

It’s been long overdue for me to share my creativity and passion with the masses. I, like many others before me, have long suffered from the compulsion to memorize every new item from my favorite stores and designers, and dream of new and interesting ways to put those items together. It often wakes me in the middle of the night…”OMG, what if I wore the Zara coat, with the Valentino shoes, the Chanel glasses, and the J Brand leather skinnies… yes, YES!”

Or when I see a cool pair of ankle booties on one of my favorite bloggers or celebs, and I subsequently spend the next two hours, manically searching online to find them, which leads me to then find five fabulous variations of said ankle bootie, all of which I purchase in a fit of online binge-shopping… (we’ve all done it, it’s okay to admit it).

People always tell me that my outfits are “cool”, so I must be doing something right.

So it’s time I embrace it all. When I find that perfect outfit, or those five (*cringe*) perfect ankle booties, I will share it with you, in the hopes that maybe, just maybe, it will inspire you, too. Because that’s what fashion is all about, right? Buying a new dress that makes you feel like a supermodel, and being soooo excited to wear it the next day that you can barely sleep. Or simply being inspired by someone else, and getting excited to look in your own closet and put together an outfit that makes you feel happy, stylish, edgy, pretty, unique — whatever you’re going for.

I hope I can help you achieve that, by sharing what’s running through my head… as neurotic as that may be  🙂

Enjoy!
