Shoes! Shoes! Shoes!

You know that adventure we take every season into the darkness of our closets? The ones where we pull out all our winter clothes and make room for our spring and summer ones?

Well this year during my plunge into the darkness of my closet I had told myself…promised myself….that I’d not buy another pair of shoes for a really long time! As I tore through my closet I came upon shoe after shoe after shoe after shoe….I have enough for everyone in the US by now and maybe a few extra pairs for people living in Europe!

This weekend I took Mai to the Palisades Mall and my strong will to not purchase any shoes…somehow…left me!

I’m thinking that since they are cute shoes I haven’t REALLY broken any promises to myself right? I mean technically if it’s cute that eliminates the need for willpower and any promises made are void!

My weekend haul:

Soooooooo Sexy! These are my total fav of the lot! I have a similiar pair but these have more strap to ‘em!

A perfect size 7! Very geeky shoe moment but I adore these! Will go perfect with my “There’s no place like 127.0.0.1″ T-Shirt

The Virtues of Black and White

My mum always proclaimed the virtues of wearing white in the summer yet never in the winter! And black in the winter but never in the summer! It seems in her book this was some sort of unwritten law and must be abided by at all costs!
Bloody hell she’s bound to be unhappy this spring/summer as black and white have decided to have a happy marriage together this season! Frocks, capris, blouses, and shoes! Doesn’t black realize it should be hibernating in the back of our closets?

Now, growing up, my mum’s rule seemed golden and sensible! Black is a nice color but I much prefer lighter colors come summer so her “law” molded me and when the warmer weather was upon us all my browns, blacks, and darker colors were pushed deeper into my closet for a long rest while my brighter, lighter shades came out to play after a deep sleep.

This morning I woke up and I combined white, black, and silver! Tis 75 degrees out and I broke the law! The fuzz are sure to come knocking at my office door today, pick me up, lock me up, and throw away the key!

The horror of it all! How could I do such a wicked thing!

But I must say that the runways have got it exactly right this season!

The combination of black, white, and silver boggles my little mind! I’m quite happily wriggling around in the following stunning items darling:

Just don’t tell my mum ok? I’ll deny it all if you do!
