Daily Covet: Marais for goop Open Toe Sandals

Named for the famous (and one of my favorite) neighborhoods in Paris, these Marais sandals for goop.com are the absolute cutest!

I know I’ve been posting shoes like crazy, but that’s what happens when you can’t fit into any of your clothes when your baby is almost a year old… but who’s counting? C’est la vie.

I love the cutaway tops and the almost mirror-like silver color. And unlike all the big, wide, hooker-y looking straps – even on couture shoes, I know – I love the itty bitty ankle straps instead.

Also, I’d like to point out that for several years, there were barely any shoes that I was loving.  So imagine my surprise when all of these gorge shoes came around – and they are wearable with everything!

Daily Covet: Sam Edelman Becker Sneakers

There’s nothing bigger in footwear than slip-ons at the moment.

That’s why these Sam Edelman Becker Sneakers are on my must-have list.  Well, that’s not the only reason. Carrying bags, baby, keys and more out the door is tough to do – which only leaves one hand to put your shoes on… if that!

Sam Edelman’s go-with-anything sneakers would be perfect since I can’t wear flip-flops all fall and winter too. I’m wild about these sneakers and would love to try them on with denim skimmers, sweatshirt dresses and even shorts!

Where can’t these Beckers in such a cute animal print go?

Daily Covet: Louboutin Lace-Up Ankle Boots

The thing about watching too much Sex & the City is you start to shop for all the fabulous shoes, clothing and handbags you see on the show.

I have this critical lapse in the reality of my bank account and start looking at gorgeous shoes from Louboutin or Manolo Blahnik.  Or it seems normal to virtually shop for designer clutches that are worth more than my refrigerator.

But after searching high and low for the perfect lace up booties in black in places that “regular girls” can afford, it was just my luck to find exactly what I’ve been envisioning in my head in the Louboutin section of Neiman Marcus.

Leave it to me to choose the absolute most expensive thing every time.

But these would be so worth it… for the beautiful red soles alone!Christian_Louboutin_Laurence_Lace-Up_Red_Sole_Ankle_Boot__Black

 

 

 

Repost: Happy 125th Birthday Eiffel Tower!

Happy Friday (or Saturday for you far away bloggy friends!) and thanks, as always, for reading LittleBlackSweats!

Daily Covet: Ted Baker Lissome Sandal

Spring hasn’t officially sprung quite yet. And usually here in Middle America, it takes a little longer than other parts of the country to finally come around.

That hasn’t stopped me from shopping for sandals though.  In my online search for the perfect shoe, I found these positively perfect rosegold sandals from Ted Baker.  I’ll bet the block heel makes them super comfy.  The metallic leather makes them dress-up worthy. The metal plate and other more practical hardware in the same rosegold color make them unique and dare I say, a little bit edgy.

Thanks to J.Crew, we can now wear even the specialist of occasion shoes with destroyed jeans, so I know I’m not out on a limb when I say that these sandals could take a girl a lot of places.

Let’s just hope that girl is me!

Daily Covet: Rag and Bone Black Boots

After dresses and coats, boots are by far my favorite item(s) to shop for.

Years ago, I bought some gorgeous black ankle boots that are almost identical, but had the square toe up top.  I’ve never been able to part with them even though that toe is quite out of style…

However, this ultra cool pair of Rag and Bone Driscoll black boots are TO.DIE.FOR.  They are sleek, but have a hint of “biker girl” to them.  They are so similar to my old ones, but with an updated rounded toe and a cool ankle strap with stud closure.

If I were to drop almost $600 on a new pair of boots this fall, these would be the ones!

What to Wear Postpartum

Bloggy friends, sorry for the hiatus in LBS.com blogging.  This post about my desire to stop having to wear clothing with panels should explain why my inspiration for daily shopping has waned.  Read more at Momaha.com today for tips on dressing a postpartum figure!

My paying gig: What I wore

I’ve been so bad at this “what I wore” segment – usually because there is no one around to take my picture when I’m rushing out of the house to my next destination.Momaha mug

However, I did rustle up most of the items I’ve been wearing lately –  and a few “similar” items I’ve found online.

Daily Covet: Gucci Patent Shoulder Bag

Yes.  Another handbag.

I hope you took me seriously when I said that this blog was going to be heavy on the shoes and handbags for a while. They are a pregnant girl’s best friends after all.

It’s so nice when you’re as big as a house and it all still fits.

Today, it’s this Gucci Patent Shoulder Bag with a top handle.  If you’ve been reading this blog for some time, you may have gathered that I have a “thing” for patent leather.  And this structured bag is no exception.

This little Gucci bag-that-could isn’t too big, and isn’t too small.  It gives me a little bit of a Breakfast-at-Tiffany’s-pillbox-hat feeling, but is still a totally modern bag with it’s slight hobo-style silhouette.  And you can hike it up on your shoulder while on a spree for more shoes and accessories than one could ever wear during a single pregnancy!
