Pour la Victorie... No no. This shoe is way too Marc Jacobs, and I don't even think the Marc Jacobs ones did well at retail. I mean, sure I bought them, but I'm a total fashion victim and I don't count. Plus, I've only worn them twice.
FURTHERMORE... if you're going to copy a shoe, at least make it cheap. Yes, at $225 it's cheaper than the original, but not by enough. I mean if you're going to spend $225 you might as well spend whatever the original was. Or at least that's how my sick mind rationalizes it. haha.
So I wore them out last night. The sequins pants! I felt very rock n roll, as you can tell by the blackout eyeshadow and silly pose up there.
I love them you guys, I really do. I got a lot of comments on them ranging from boys saying "Woah, what ARE those!?" to girls "OMG I wish I could wear those!" They're technically jeans with a little stretch to them. They have pockets and belt loops and everything! They're a bitch to sit down in, and if your thighs touch (mine do) they make noise when you walk- but they're totally worth it I think! I just walk a little bow legged in them and I'm fine. ;)
Well... I think you should try it out ladies! They're so fun and fabulous! Here's the link, in case.
(tops- C&C, and American Apparel, pants- TopShop, shoes- Hale Bob)
Excuse the super slut pic, though if I'm being honest I kinda love it! Hahahaha
Anyway- ever since I saw those freaking amazing McQueen leggings I've kind of built up an obsession.
Thank you for stepping in as usual Top Shop! I definitely got my sequin fix.
I picked up this navy sequin bra, and a pair of black sequin "jeans" which I am planning to wear ASAP and will post a pic then. ;) They look very similar to the McQueens, I must say. And don't worry, I wont wear the pants and bra together.
One of my gorgeous friends had some family photos taken and this one caught my eye. This photo goes out to all you moms that use motherhood as an excuse to get frumpy. GET OUT OF THOSE CROCS! You're going to traumatize your children and send them down the wrong path. They look to you for guidance and that includes in the fashion department!
This mom is NOT frumpy. I love how it looks to see a mom with a young kid wearing heels. It gives me hope for my future.
Now I know I'm going to piss some of you moms off, but just hear me out- I'm not judging you I'm just saying that YES, it is possible to pull it off.
So Banky's first time at the Bark Park turned out to be quite the experience.
We got there around noon and there were 2 areas, like there usually is. One for bigger dogs and one for little dogs, handicapped dogs and older dogs. One of the first things I noticed was that there was a big ol Pitbull in the little dog section, but I figured that maybe that dog had little dogs in its home and that maybe they were all playing together. I didn't want to be a racial profiler (or a BREED profiler in this case) haha.
About the same time I notice the Pitbull I see this total douche bag guy, early 20's, running around playing with a bunch of dogs, but clearly a douche bag.
So anyway- Ben and I are sitting with Banksy and he's being pretty shy, it being his first time and all... when the Pitbull sort of attacks this littler dog and a bunch of people run to break it up. Well, up comes the owner of the little dog all frantic and grabbing the little guy and she goes- "I've told you 3 times now- your dog is too fucking big to be in here! Take him over there!!"
To which the douchebag and owner of the Pitbull says- "Fuck you lady!"
Lady- "No fuck YOU! And next time your fucking dog bites mine I'll have him put down! He's started 3 fights already- get OUT!"
Then another guy from across the park sees that the guy is being a douche, and very rude I may add- all this cursing is even making ME uncomfortable... and he yells "dude, take your dog to the big dog section- there's two sections!"
The douche ignores everyone and sort of crosses his arms in protest and lets his dog run around some more. There's some serious tension at this point.
The lady yells "GET YOUR FUCKING DOG OUT OF HERE ALREADY!"
And the douche goes "You know what? Shut the fuck up! and YOU! (to the other guy across the park) You shut the fuck up too!"
SO THEEEEEEN other guy grabs the Pitbull by the collar and says "Fine, I'll take your fucking dog myself!" And then the douche lost it. He ran towards the guy "DONT TOUCH MY DOG!" and a full on fist fight broke out. It was the stupidest thing I have ever seen. A guy from the big dog park jumped the fence and started punching the douche and then Ben ran over to try to help break it up. It was like high school all over again.
Finally the douche took a hint (and some punches to the ribs) and left.
That was my first experience at a dog park. We'll see what happens next week...
Miu Miu motorcycle boots! The only good thing about cold weather is the clothes/boots!!
I'm going to my friend Chris's annual Turkey Day. He makes Thanksgiving dinner a week early for those of us who love it so much we literally can't get enough. Hopefully these skinny jeans still fit after the fact. ;)
This guy's been helping me write my blog. When he's not chewing on my hand, he enjoys long walks, cat poop, and laundry diving.
His name is Banksy and he loves to sit on my lap while I type. Occasionally he'll take a stab at typing himself. He also likes to sit on the remote and change the channel at crucial parts of my overly dramatic shows...
I am being so good it's stupid. I really need to cut back on the almost $1000 a pair shoe habit I've got and I've been pretty good. The last pair of shoes I bought were those Jinny Kim boots that I returned 'cause they turned out to be heinous in person.
So anyway- my lovely sales person Patrick called to make an appointment for me to come in for the sale and I was going to go with my friend Heidi (she's the only friend I know who can keep up with my shopping habits) but she couldn't make it on Thursday so I took it as a sign.
Anyway- a big toot of my own horn. A pat on my own back. Woop-de-doo.
I'm broke and just have to admit it. At least there's TopShop and Forever21 and Urban Outfitters. And do I REALLY need another statement shoe this season? I have the Trib2 and the freakinLouboutin loafer double platform thingy. And apparently my Balenciaga knock off is still covetable according to Miss Rumi (who JUST blogged about ordering them for herself). Coincidence? I think NOT.
My new slutty red lipstick from NARS and my "Balenciaga" ankle boots by Sam Edelman.
These are by far my favorite knockoffs! I was so excited to see someone blatantly copy last year's Balenciaga shoe. I love it and always get tons of compliments on them. Most people don't know they are Balenciaga wannabes- they just know that they are super crazy and very different looking.
I'm in a meeting all morning with the Hale Bob girls going over sketches with Jessie, my partner in crime... er... design I mean.
So I'm sure it's painfully obvious that I am neglecting my blog because frankly, I'm grossly overworked. So I've decided a quick fun and easy thing to do is to at LEAST post what shoes I'm wearing each day. Sound good? haha
I'll be taking the pics myself with my trusty MacBook so sorry if they aren't the best pictures. You'll get the idea though.
So, here it goes. Today I'm wearing....
Hidden Christian Louboutinburgundy patent maryjanes.
I dunno you guys. Sometimes the whole sock boot is cute, but when it looks like this... I just can't back it. If I wanted to wear a damn tube sock in my ankle boot, I am perfectly capable of finding, and if needed, laundering said sock- then wearing it.
What if I was feeling sassy on a particular day and I wanted to wear some mustard yellow socks.
What if I don't like grey tube socks?
What if my mother was abusive when I was younger and she would tie my hands behind my back with a pair of grey tube socks and make me watch her eat rainbow sherbet and not give me any? Stella, now you're just being insensitive.
Anyway, if you DO like grey tube socks, paired of course with grey FAUX stingray (at $1,195 I'll go hunt a real stingray and skin it myself thankyouveryuch)... then help yourself. Don't mind me while I sit in my corner and silently judge you. They're HERE at Barneys.
I do admit though that that "wings" above the heels are a bit weird, but I love everything else. The shape, the materials, the fit... I think even the wings can be overlooked. I mean, they're so rock 'n roll, it's stupid.
I think you'd definitely have to be a skinny bitch to pull these off (which I am not...) so I will save these for them bitches. I will however continue to lust after them and might even photoshop my head on a skinny model body and add these boots, paper doll style. Who knows?
Sorry B, but these shoes are shitteous. I am not digging the trend towards pointy toes. Let's leave that trend in 2003 shall we? I do NOT miss them. Almost the entire Chloe fall 09 runway show had these weird pointy toes. I really don't get it. I mean, I do realize that trends go in opposites (ex: super skinny jeans one year, HUGE flairs the next) but these are just not flattering. I want my feet to look smaller, not bigger and witchier.
Anway, I don't like these and I can't imagine why you would, but if you do, please tell me WHY.
I ended up buying those flat boots, and they were shitteous. They fit SO badly and looked super cheap. I was really excited to get them too. :(
You know when you're waiting by the door for the UPS truck... like where's my package, where's my package, WHERE'S MY GD PACKAGE!?!?!
Ya... it was one of those. Then I got them and waaahhh waaaaaahhhhhh- sucky. Maybe I should have taken a picture of them to better illustrate the shittyness of them. And $400 something is not cheap. If they were as good as they looked on the website, they'd be a good deal... but for crappy boots? Naaaah.
Anyway, just wanted to clear that up. Don't buy them.
I will say something good about Revolve Clothing though... they have a 30 day return policy and free shipping to me and back to them. That's awesome and will guarantee that I will go back to them in the future. :)
