Got my much anticipated Jeffrey Campbell Biz Belted Booties, and I’m quite sure I could wear these everyday. They’re super comfy. Worth the wait and online stalking.

Updated Material Girl

Lady Gaga rocked this dress back in February at the 2009 British Awards. Ok, so minus the extreme origami/bubble shape of the skirt and deep plunging sweetheart(ish) neckline , both of which I love, the hot pink strapless number I just bought below is a wayyy scaled down version.  Maybe when I learn how to finally sew, I could tack down a simple side stitch to create some side poofing?  At only $49, how could I resist?

Living In The Moment

topshop-mesh-jersey-playsuitaztec-studded-ankle-bootsDear Topshop, I know you’ve heard this a million zillion times, but when are you coming to LA?  You’d make a killing here.  Oh yea, just got these too.  Will be on Ramen for the next month.

Make It Stop

jeffrey-campbell-mel_solestruckMINE in a week!!  Slowly turning into a shoe ‘hoar’ (hi mom!).  Must stop it now.  The Jeffrey Campbell Mel is now available at SolestruckUPDATE:  I ordered these 20 min. ago, and must have gotten one of the last 8.5 pairs.  These do come in half sizes, even though there aren’t any more on Solestruck. A quick search will show you they’re selling them at a other places for a little less spenny.

Cheaper versions are still available at Aldo with the Molavi and Smeal.

Ankle Cover-Ups

The Dolce Vita Phoenix Sandals are now in my possession, and I can’t wait to wear them!  They’re comfy and fit true to size.  Recently I got the Luichiny Ankle Cuff Sandal to add some metallic shine to my soles.  Truth be told, I typically throw on jeans with tanks in the summer (love the AC, but get cold fast), but with these new sandals, I’ll have an excuse to wear some cut-offs.  Plus, I plan to revive a few old pairs of jeans by dolphin-cutting and fraying them.  Thanks to Bleach Black, I am now versed in the fine art of fraying/razoring those hanging threads vs. snipping them, which I used to do.  Can it be June yet?!

Ruffle This

I’m tiered ruffled-crazy right now, which explains why I got this Kimchi Blue Rufflesnake Bandeau at Urban Outfitters today.  I’d never wear this alone because it’s a bra, but thought it could be a bonus throw-on if I needed to spice up a plain tank or one of my strappy knit dresses.

It’s not my norm style to throw on a bra over a tank, but the tiered ruffles had me at hello and drowned away any prelim hesitancy.  However, I’m putting this to the Public Style Experiment.  More to follow on this…
