topshop game high pointed courts

I know these have been out forever, but I love the idea of a metallic shoe functioning as a neutral for spring and summer.

I couldn’t resist doing another peplum top and pencil skirt pairing.  I just love the bright color of this shirt.

There’s a giant snowstorm moving through Denver at the moment, so I’m posting some photos I took yesterday.  I love how this cape looks belted – so vintage and ladylike – but it greatly restricts my arm movements.  You should have seen me trying to drive in this outfit before I finally ditched the belt.  Also, I think I’m going to have to retire these shades until my hair grows out some… while editing these photos I noticed I’m starting to bear a striking resemblance to Elton John, and I don’t think the sunglasses are helping.

While you’re online, Kim over at shoecloszet.com was kind enough to feature me in her “What They’re Wearing” section.  Shoecloszet is a blog all about shoes – everything from celeb inspiration to trends in footwear to actual closets full of shoes!  Check it out here.

I’d been eying these trousers all year till they finally went on sale at Barney’s, only available in my size.  Basically it was meant to be.  I mixed them with a healthy dose of leopard print and an overload of spike jewelry for a look that’s a little bit Samantha Jones.

pump it up

topshop sultry high platform courts in nude, pour la victoire irina II platforms in grey snake, topshop sultry high platform courts in black

No matter how many styles of shoe I have – peep toe, ankle wrap, wedge, t-strap, bootie, slingback, strappy sandal – I will always love pumps the most.  There is just something timeless and ladylike about them – plus, they lengthen and slim the legs like no other shoe style can.  I just found these “sultry” courts on topshop and couldn’t resist posting them.  They embody everything I’ve always looked for in a pair of pumps: 5+ inch heel, covered platform, almond toe, and they come in the perfect shade of nude.  These are the shoes I have been looking for all my life.  Now all I need is a coupon code…
