I can never have too many ankle booties as I literally wear them all year round with everything. Bought these a few weeks ago and I haven’t taken them off since. The Rag and Bone Newbury is such a timeless style to have, and in my opinion every girl needs at least one pair in their closet. If you already do, then this new style adds a fashion twist to the classic as perforated leather is everywhere this season, and they also make booties much more wearable during the hot weather. Love love!

Talking about temptation..I bought this pair from here which I really should be staying away from, but it’s just everything I wanted for a pair of perfect booties this fall. They are black, peep toe, with the signature Valentino studs. Just can’t say no…The style is timeless to me so they will last till I can rock in heels again!
I am going through a major shoe phase lately, and the fact that there are a lot of nice booties rolling out amongst the US shopping sites is not helping to curb my obsession at all. I bought this pair of gorgeous KORS Michael Kors Shailyn Wedge Booties a few weeks ago (bought here) – the sharp pointed toe is a little Givenchy inspired (high end version here) and I just love it. It’s a pair of very classic black booties with an edge, and as you know I am all about classic with an edge for fashion, as well as for makeup! The quality looks just as good and they feel comfy. I haven’t had a chance to wear them out yet, but will report back in my future OOTD.
BTW, shopbop is having another awesome deal at the moment. Enter promo code BIGEVENT12 for the below deals. I noticed that some of the hot goodies saved in my wishlist have already sold out..but I managed to get this Helmut Lang! Yay
As summer is approaching, I bought my first pair of sandals for this year – the timeless YSL Tribute Patent Sandal (bought here!). Love the tannish nude color as it looks very versatile all year round. Although the heels are pretty high, the comfort has surpassed my expectations. I can walk in them for hours without grimacing. Despite the gorgeous look of them and the “Made-in Italy” stamp – which is rare as there are more prestige fashion houses moving their manufacturing to China lately (*cough* Burberry..Prada..), the practicality of these shoes are definitely worth the high price tag! And now I totally understand why people collect them in multiple colors – it’s an addiction with YSL Tribute!
The denim trend has evolved from bright and pastel solid hues to intricate and flamboyant printed patterns this fall. I found this pair of leopard print Jeans from Zara recently and I believe it was for less than $100! Being quite a Jeans snob, I am surprised how great the fit is. The dark blue hue helps to make the leopard pattern look subtle. To balance the leopard feature, I paired it with an Equipment shirt (which is hands down the best shirt) in a neutral tone for an urban and polished look.

Never imagined myself to be in sneakers other than being in the gym. The ASH Cool Wedge Sneakers (bought here) has completely changed my view of sneakers – they are uber chic, and add a casual and edgy vibe to my normal everyday outfit. I am completely in love with them and now I want them in black and suede as well! The high street shoes shops are flooded with wedge sneakers lately, and upon “inspection” I am very grateful with this purchase as the Ash are much better made and look more expensive than the others I have seen. Love love!!
My new Alexander Wang Booties have my pulse racing!
As vain as it may sound, my everyday routine involves checking out the new arrivals on Shopbop and Net-A-Porter and lusting over those amazing pieces. These Alexander Wang Andi Woven Platform Booties was on my wishlist ever since they were released, and I finally took the plunge and ordered the pair on Shopbop (I am picky with shoes so I have never bought shoes online.) They turned out to be exactly what I expected – classic with an edge, chic and goes with everything, and most importantly they are comfortable! The heel size is 10cm which is the highest I can go without falling over.
I bought these at full price, and damn you Shopbop! They are on sale now! For your reference I am an Australian shoe size 36.5, and I bought the pair in US 36.5 but they run a little large for me. So for the Aussie ladies I suggest you to go half a size down for Alexander Wang Shoes.
