Ooooooo Lucite Pumps

In Taipei I wandered into a little boutique that specialized in goods from South Korea. They had one pair of these amazing pink patent shoes with a baby doll toe and a 3.5 inch lucite wedge. They were a full size too small for me, but I almost wish I’d bought them anyway.

It’s sort of made the hunt for me though…when they wander back into my mind I can spend a few minutes searching for their nearest cousin online. Today I found these beauts from Chloe’s Spring 2011 Ready-to-wear.

Oooooooo Nice Pants!

This spurred a mad search for fringe fabric online. The closest I got? Pre-made long fringe skirts for belly dancing.

SOLD!! But how to turn them into these??

Better brush up on my macrame skillz also.

Update soon!

Oooooooo High-Falutin’ Swimwear 2011

I know, it’s still freezing in most of the country. Which makes it the perfect time to be dreaming of a vacation you won’t take to Kauai! And when you get to that magnificent beach in your head, you’ll be needing something to cover your naughty bits (or will you!!??).

My favorite options so far this year:

Lanvin Spring 2011

Emilio Pucci Spring 2011

Michael Kors Spring 2011

Mara Hoffman Spring 2011


Happy travels, my friends!

Ooooooo Grey Antic’s Jumper

Well I’ve got jumper fever. I’ve always thought I don’t have the type of body shape to pull off one of these, but after all the beautiful ones I’ve seen lately, I’m eager to give up any reservations. Too bad it’s a little pricey for a 75%-out-of-work dreamer.

Anyway, IT IS my perfect jumper.

And THEN!!

Oh boy. As Stephen Colbert recently asked Amy Chua, “Can I get you a tricycle so you can backpedal faster?”

If this lovely young lady’s flawless proportions can’t make it look good…

Funny how quickly these needy emotions come and go!

Ooooooooo Chanel Resort 2011

Disapprove 😦

A few gorgeous things I’d like to own myself. The collection is lovely, if a little too ’76 for my closet. Check it out at
PS. Nice move in including Crystal Renn, the stunning size 6 plus model, but point revoked for this last disaster of health.

These customizable shoes caught by eye at Design Milk this morning. They’re so playful and funky! For a cool hundred bones, you can have a pair of clear, black, baby blue, red, off-white or what they call orange but looks much more fleshy to me. I like the whites, although I imagine them scuffing up quite a bit. Never the less, for a piece of excellent, wear-able design like this, I’d fork over whatever.

Just take your scissors and go to town:
