Foot Fetish

I'm starting off pretty tame, so if this is out of your comfort zone,
I suggest skipping this racy entry...

I've loved these for YEARS since the fashion industry started to play Picasso with shoe styles. However I picture myself standing up and circling my arms back... back... back... as I topple back onto the chair.

These little gems look like some sort of torture device. I remember twirling my pencil around on the ground in 2nd grade and trying to grab it before it fell only to stab myself and come up with a pencil sticking out of my palm. That's a little how I feel about these shoes...

This girl looks like she's having a TON of fun at this party, and she might just stop by a disco tech later tonight.
Lets get serious here, you have to be a ballerina to even balance on these bad boys and I dropped out of ballet at a young age when it was clear I couldn't even point my finger... That being said, I covet them, I lust for them and I want them bad...

Bing Bang BOOM! DANG! I love these shoes. This is Madonna sporting what I assume is some Chanel footwear... Do you need a permit to wear these?

This is a model from my own collection... Kidding. A shoe called the Mojito designed by an architect. I haven't had so much trouble figuring out which shoe goes on which foot since I was in preschool!
WARNING: Parents, send your kids out of the room... this is about to get frightening.

First of all, I'm not sure if those are walkers or WHAT with the crazy black tennis balls on the bottom of them... If you have to buy a 25 cent bouncy ball to stick to the bottom of your shoes so you don't slip and slide on stage trying to get to the pole, you have problems.
There's a reason she's sitting.

I love this post tattoooooooo much

According to "New York Fashion" website, You can now purchase Chanel's own line of temporary tattoos. They're $75 for five sheets of 55 tattoos, but I'm expecting them to hit Canal Street pretty soon for $10

would you take $5?



How about $7.


Chanel models sported the edgy look in the Spring 2010 fashion show as well as models from the Rodarte and Jean Paul Gautier runway shows. Recently Sarah Jessica Parker was spotted wearing a temp tat bracelet, and SURPRISE! All of David Beckham's tattoos are fake Chanel tattoos too!
Just Kidding... But would we ever really know?

I ran to the dollar store over lunch to grab some of the body bling but this is all they had...
(For the record, I DON'T condone knock off designer stuff... It costs the fashion industry tons of money and they don't pay the workers very well for the work they do.)

She Obsesses over Dresses...

This, my friend, is an adorable print on a perfect little dress. I can't even explain why it's so perfect! Just look at it. Yellow+Teal+Geometry+cute little neck line+cinched waist+not too short= Can someone get me a graphing calculator... TI-84 anyone?

This little number is a nod to Saturday mornings. Drawstring waist, feather grey... Can I sleep in this? Adorable accents at the waist band and I'm good to go. Love it with Chucks, Love it with gladiators, flip flops, heels, or barefoot eating quiche and drinking mimosas on my back porch. <3>

I love the casual gathering on the side of this gem. It kind of has the same look ask those t-shirts we (yes, we) wore in the 90's that we tied on the side to expose our midriff... BUT this doesn't expose belly buttons and its not gathered because it's ENORMOUSLY over sized, just comfortably skimming the curves. I also love the short sleeves. Not every event I go to do I feel comfortable bearing arms like the First Lady... I haven't done my bicep curls yet lady!

This dress KILLS me, I LOVE it. I love the way the stripes point to the illusion of a thin waist, I love the way the material looks like it keeps it's integrity when I'm feeling a bit plump in the center. I love the colors, I love the neckline... I just don't love that it costs like $400 at JCrew... RECESSION people... Jump on the "frugalista" bandwagon. gez.

It's a little tough to see, but I love the colors. Brown and yellow. I LOVE mustard yellow right now. Especially with muted neutrals like Grey and brown. Dude, Muted Neutrals is a SWEET band name. Anyway... The neckline has some detail that makes necklaces obsolete. Good for me because my necklaces are heavy duty and I start to sweat under the weight of them in the Iowa summer...

Me Gusta this little number. The watercolor thing is SO in right now and this dress is like someone wrapped up this little nugget of a model in some watercolor ribbon and sent her packing. The belt perfects it.

If only I could add a "happy little tree... riiiiiiight about here."
