Thanks for letting me be… me

I’m thankful for snatching up the Jeffrey Campbell Alexa Wedges before they sold out again.  They are amazing, and more importantly, I feel amazing when I wear them.  Comfort + height = Shoe bliss.

Thanks so much

to everyone who stops by here and leaves me the sweetest notes; for inspiring me with your perspectives on personal style and putting yourselves out there for the whole world to critique; for embracing me and making me fortunate enough to be part of this creative fashion blogging community which I would have never imagined I’d belong.

xoxo, Becs

Say hello to my little friend

I tried to resist, but caved and got the Jeffrey Campbell Alexa Wedge Bootie from LF Stores.  They also now come in black patent leather and a cream color.

I’m such a sucker for instant gratification.

Have a wonderful weekend! xoxo

So the great thing about moving is finding things you haven’t seen or may have temporarily lost.  Cyndi Lauper CD – was lost but now found.  Let the overplaying of “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” start up again.  I also found several pairs of neglected and unworn shoes.  Score.

Since my shoes are all out of hiding, I thought I’d share with you some of my daily choice footwear.

Without being able to splurge on high-end designer shoes due to my lack of funds, I make do with what I have and am always on the hunt for vintage finds.  I practically wear my vintage Justin Roper boots any chance I get.  In the famous sentiments of T.G., “Make it work.”

Thanks so much for bearing with me during my absence.  I’ll get back to everyone’s comments this week and can’t wait to catch up on all of your blogs!

Yes, I love Jeffrey Campbell

So I have this love for Jeffrey Campbell shoes which has been chronicled on here.  It began with my first JC purchase — the amazing Jeffrey Campbell Biz Bootie — which I basically had to stalk Oaknyc.com everyday until it came back in stock.  It was a semi-rollercoaster of emotions that began with finding out it was sold out everywhere, and being bummed, to then finding them in my size on Oaknyc.com and being uber overjoyed.  Then came my Jeffrey Campbell Mel shoes, which I absolutely love… love them so much that I plan to wear them to my friend’s wedding next month who wants to borrow them!  They instantly glamorize any outfit you’re wearing.  And next up came the Doo Lace-up shoes, which have the softest leather ever.  BTW, next time you buy your own pair of Jeffrey Campbell shoes, peep the bottom of the box.  You will be surprised at what you find… and intrigued at the same time.

So thank you Jeffrey Campbell for making such amazing shoes and the excellent shout-out on your blog!  You’re right, I am obsessed!

And since I think the Jeffrey Campbell Biz Bootie was one of my most amazing purchases ever because it’s comfy, versatile and how can you really go wrong with multi-buckles(?), they are now available (for $20 cheaper than what I paid) at Nasty Gal.  Check them out, and you won’t be disappointed.  Bonus is that they have half sizes.  When I got mine, there were no half sizes and I went with a 9 when I wear an 8.5, but I’d say they still fit true to size.

And no, I didn’t get paid to state my love for Jeffrey Campbell shoes. When I see a good thing, I like to share it with everyone else.  Think good karma. When you do a nice thing for others, granted, we’re talking about shoes here, I’d like to think that the world will look out for you.  OK, I’m stopping my BS talk now.

BTW, speaking of Nasty Gal, I just bought this amazing 80′s off-the-shoulder bandage dress that has puckered velvet fabric!  Sometimes I wish I didn’t have a computer, or only had limited access to it because I wouldn’t check my favorite online shopping sites so often.

Hope you all have an amazing weekend!  I’m headed to the American Apparel rummage sale tomorrow, so hopefully I come out with some good stuff.  Gotta love digging through piles of stuff to find that one gem… or soft V-neck tee!  UPDATE: Lame is sending an email out wide the evening before about your rummage sale with a start time of 10am, only to arrive at said start time and there is one person working at the store.  Without apologies, the sale would start by noon since there was no one else working there.  People were annoyed.  Lamer is the fact that you have to pay for parking around this location and I feel lame for waking my ass up to go over there early on a Saturday morning.  So I didn’t stay because I’d have to pay more for parking and was over it.  But I still love American Apparel, just not this one particular location.  Anyway, the Melrose store is way nicer.  End of Saturday rant.

Happy Hump Day!

Just picked up the Jeffrey Campbell Doo Lace-Up Peep Toe Shoes. The black ones are on back-order until later this month at Free People (also available in beige), but I didn’t want to wait and so I got them from Revolve Clothing.  Plus, Revolve gives you free shipping and free returns.  Score.

My twinny Mel and I also bought the same Topshop floral cropped tee.  Yes, sometimes we share clothes, but one of us, ahem, tends to be more anal about sharing, so usually it’s just easier for us to both buy the same item so we have our own.  Currently I’m on a fingerless glove kick, and love the ruffle detail of these lace gloves from Free People.  They’re a great accessory to dress up the perfect LBD, and I can’t wait to wear them!

I neglected to post pics of what I was wore this weekend.  Nothing ground-breaking as I wore these outfits to do some shopping in (though I didn’t buy anything).  Seriously, I tend to prefer online shopping than having to actually go to the store.

Looking at these pics, I must have been into the black and blue combo.  Broke out the Aaneta bag this past weekend for the first time since last summer.  It’s spacious and just an overall great bag to tote around during the spring/summer days.

Happy Hump Day!

Invite Me To The Opening Ceremony

Everything is just so amazing (ly expensive). No, but seriously, so amazing it’s like you need to catch your breath. I mean that Alexander Wang leather fringe sweatshirt and mesh mid-wedge are right up my alley.  If only I had the cash flow to blow.
