This Week’s Wish List

I’ve a had a yen for accessories this week — expensive and some not so much, but all equally covetable. I fell in love with the Un Bout high heels by Christian Louboutin which come in a delicious array of colors (red was another favorite). Since Louboutin’s can be a stretch for many budgets, I included a fabulous pair of Aldo anklestraps that are every bit just as awesome.

Just the other day my jewelry designer friend, Cynthia Desser (check out her fabulous wares that I perpetually want), turned me on to Mawi jewelry. I’m mad for their clean lines and edginess, and particularly fell in love with the piece above. Thanks Cyn!

If you’re in need of some new tunes to brighten your mood make sure to check out Jason Mraz’s new album, Love Is A Four Letter Word. It contains his awesome new song I Won’t Give Up which is available to preorder before it hits stores this Tuesday.

Enjoy! And if you have any covetables of your own please share!!

Trend Report — The Pointy Pump

The latest fashion trend to come from the Mad Men (Sunday’s On AMC) craze is the pointy pump. This spring the sexy 50’s silhouette comes in a multitude of colors and heel heights — some as high as 5 inches.

Pumps most attractive benefit is their versatility, they can compliment most any outfit — from all your work clothes to your boyfriend and favorite skinny jeans, to skirts and cigarette black pants. Another benefit, what these shoes can do to a pair of legs is something else — they  have a seriously sexy vibe.

Need another plus? This trend isn’t going anywhere — J Crew recently revealed Manalo Blahnik’s collection of pumps for next years fall lineup. The styles will still be quite pricey but will come in a variety of prints and colors new to Blahnik. But there is no need to wait until then, in the mean time enjoy the multitude of styles and colors in stores now. I’ve put together a selection of a few of my favorites.

If Money Were No Object

The Row bagIrene Neuwirth Gold Lockets Set with Diamonds and GemsBalmain skirt     Christian Louboutin 

Ever wondered if money were no object what you would buy? Of course we’d all love a fancy yacht or house on the beach, and in the world of fashion the possibilities are endless and quite inspiring. Life is about setting goals and pursuing them…if there’s something you always wished you could own, maybe now’s the time to get a piggy bank for a rainy day splurge.

Not long ago Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen double-handedly sparked a craze for over super-sized bags, but when it came to designing their own collection for The Row the duo did things on a smaller (though no less luxurious) scale. Minimal hardware, sleek structure and not a label in sight, this matte lizard tote exemplifies the refined aesthetic of the line. $5,450; at Barneys New York.

Irene Neuwirth’s Gold Lockets Set with Diamonds and Gems is the perfect luxury for the sentimental at heart. The eternal design has been given a glam update with gorgeous semi precious stones and diamonds that cover her golden lockets, making these pieces ready for pictures of cherished loved ones. $12,360 to $22,880.

Balmain’s embroidered skirt with mirrors is Ziggy Stardust meets the tribal trend in this edgy embellished work-of-art. The skirt is hand-embroidered with mosaics of mirrors, fringe, crystals and ribbons. It’s no wonder this Parisian label has become the house of cool girl couture.$15,100.

Christian Louboutin’s Piou Piou 85 python pumps measure 3.5 inches of pure eleganceChristian Louboutin strikes design gold with these sophisticated heels, with a rainbow-bright splatter effect that’s right on trend for the color trends of Spring.

Jewel-Tone Suede Heels


Sky-high heels in deep, rich colors are all the rage and will give a sultry lift to holiday dresses and mini-skirts this winter season. Some stylists have actually characterized jewel-tones as the new neutrals because the concept of color-blocking has become such an easy way to mix bold colors together.

Suede is what gives a great jewel-toned heel added warmth (and makes the shoe different from summer-time deliveries). Staying away from the typically safe neutrals like brown and black is what is going to take that LBD to the next level and give your winter wardrobe a perfect punch of fun and color.

From My Closet To Yours – Style Tips By Kristin

It’s almost July and stores are making room for Pre-Fall and Fall collections, which means Spring/Summer is on sale. Now is the time to get designer shoes at not so designer prices.
The fit of a shoe depends on the design, shape and volume of the shoe last – the part of the shoe that represents the anatomical information of the foot. Designer shoes have a higher quality last, which is one of the main reasons why they last so long and are so comfortable. They can still be expensive even when on sale, but when you consider that they can last 10 plus years ( I still wear a 12 year old pair of Gucci shoes) if taken care of properly, they make for a great investment – just make sure they are of a classic nature.
There is nothing like a well made pair of shoes. Trust me, your feet will definitely be thanking you.
I went shopping for you at my 2 favorite places to shop, Barneys New York and Net A Porter. Enjoy!
