Cool Weather Bags

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’m a bag lady, but with Christmas around the corner, I’m officially on a spending freeze. HOWEVER, if I’m on anyones Christmas list, I wouldn’t mind one of these beauties!

Fabulous Footwear Friday

I’ve posted on Crocs that you don’t realize are Crocs before.  And here we are again! I love the color and I love a good flat! These are actually in my shopping cart as we speak–aren’t they adorable?

My son has been living in crocs this summer and I figured we needed to get him some tennis shoes for fall/winter.  So I went on the hunt and OMG there are so many cute ones.  I had trouble deciding between cute and colorful and cute and neutral.  The Dr. Seuss ones are ADORABLE!  I really wanted to go with something that was easy to put on and take off.  I ultimately ended up with #3 and I could not love them more.  They are so easy to put on and they are neutral with a bit color with the orange stitching.  LOVE THEM!

GOOD GOD get these on my feet.

Wouldn’t these be a great transitional sandal for fall?  Loving on the grey and the industrial feel to them.  I think Sarah will appreciate them too, she was just loving on Nine West!


When I see espadrilles I think SUMMER.  I also think, “I need to be in Mexico with a margarita”.  I yammer on a lot about Mexico don’t I? Honestly I’ll just take the marg.  But I’ll also take some espadrilles. I’m pretty sure I need #2. What say you?

Fabulous Footwear Friday

Us Tipsy gals decided to switch up our Friday routine and add in FABULOUS footwear! Because lets face it, who doesn’t love shoes….

First up are these cuties:

Pierre Dumas Devora-1: I’ve never worn this brand, but I’m loving these sandals for their cuteness factor AND that they’re only $29.50!!!

Give Me a Wedge(e)!

Get it?   HAHAHA.  I’m pretty lame.

So,  I’ve figured out that due to various situations I am not longer eligible for stilettos or 4 inch heels.  I have outlined these below:

  • WAS- weak ankle syndrome
  • achy feet
  • getting too damned old
  • not wanting to feel like too much of a stripper
  • the high likelihood that if I have consumed any alcohol at all–I could end up DFO (done fell out aka, on the ground)

The solution?  Easy, a wedge or platform.  I am completely in love.  The elegance for the dressier times, the comfort I need.  Here’s a few I have my eyes on.

  1. Michael Antonio Green Wedge
  2. Rampage Wedge with Turquoise
  3. Jessica Simpson Orange Wedge
  4. BCBG Crimson Platform
  5. Xhiliration Olive Wedge

On another note, all of these seem to have a pretty good price tag!

Christmas Wishlist: AK Edition

Der thought it’d be a good idea if we all shared our dream Christmas Wishlists for this year–she explicitly said if money was no object what would you ask for.  So I picked a little something something or alot of something something.  But I categorized it for you foos because I’m OCD like that.  Anyway…have at it.  I’m drooling.
