Shoe Lust

Typically female, my lust for shoes will never die. Just when I think to myself that my closet is overflowing (with 99 percent black) shoes, my eyes and heart set sight on a new pair. As these are the holidays, I am hoping that in some kind of act of Christmas spirit, one of these will arrive in a package on my doorstep *hint hint*. Okay that will probably never happen (although I hope it does) but hey at least I have a somewhat less random blog post on my hands.
First up, and I am so late on this that these boots aren't even available any more on Luisviaroma, who are having a F/W sale by the way, not that you can actually afford anything on there without a platinum/unrestricted credit card.
The Dsquared Nappa spine ankle boots. The heel says it all.




On to more practical footwear, I never thought I would see the day where I would be lusting after a pair of Doc Martens. I always found them a bit too clunky heeled/punkster for my taste (although I had my punk times back in the day of 'rebellious youth' but that would require too many hours of Freudian psychoanalysis).
But these beautifully pastel coloured (the mint green is my fave), patent croc leather and rounded/granny orthopedic heels have me looking at these babies in a new light. Thank you Susie Bubble, for restoring my fatih in love at first sight.

Creep Me Out

Never one to say no to a good sale, I swooped up my first pair of 80%20 shoes at Asos. I love the hidden wedge and that they are creeper tough but not too clunky. Plus I need a pair of winter shoes with a good profile (I have been slipping and sliding around on the icy streets like an idiot lately).You like?

Jason Wu/Helmut Lang Pre-Fall 2011

Is it just me or where the Spring 2011 yesterday? But not one to complain about an opportunity to gawk at some nice clothes (geez I sound really superficial), here I serve you an appetiser of Helmut Lang to a main course of Jason Wu. 
And because I will probably be stuck at the airport the day of, Merry Christmas everyone!

Helmut Lang- easy, breezy, super cool.





Jason Wu- while I have often been never sure if I find his designs beautiful or bla, there is a lot of like for this one. Love myself a socks and sandals combo.

Hanging At The Wash Saloon In December 2005

Due to my brain being a general sludge lately, I am not sure if this is a repost or not, but either way it doesn't matter because this US Vogue shoot with Gemma Ward, Caroline Trentini and Lily Donaldson by Steven Meisel and styled by Edward Enninful is beauty overload.
Oh Gemma Ward, I miss you.

Miles Aldrige

I love the play of colour and cartoon-like effects in Miles Aldrige's photography.
