Daily Covet: Joan & David Cicilee Pump

Shoes.

One of my all-time biggest passions.  I collect them and can remember every bad decision I’ve made to finally let go of a certain pair.  It’s never failed that at some point, I’ve needed or wanted that exact pair of shoes for some reason.

…brings me to these shoes!  These Joan & David Cicilee pumps that would’ve been perfect for my “Gatsby” soirée early last month.

I had a similar pair of these shoes once upon a time.  I loved the cut-outs and the ribbon.  And now, I am particularly into “cage-y” style shoes, which I guess these could be classified as… in the most demure context anyway.

And they aren’t $700 like my other coveted footwear!

Maison Martin Margiela Cutout Illusion Pump

I just had to post these Maison Martin Margiela pumps I found today.

I can’t decide if I love them or hate them, but I have to admit they are unique.

What do you think?

Daily Covet: Anthropologie’s take on the black & tan

You know how when you find those shoes that you just love, and you can’t decide whether to get them in black?  Or in tan?  Or both?

These Anthropologie black & tan heels will help you make that decision toute suite, with their adorable two-toned selves.

Never more will you have to pack two pairs of heels for a long weekend.  Wear them with bare legs and the perfect pedicure in my favorite, OPI’s “Thrill of Brazil.”  Or pair them with gray tights and cute skirts when the weather turns cold.

These versatile Anthropologie heels are for the chick, who can’t decide between her favorite jeans, a sexy pencil skirt or a feminine dress.

Daily Covet: Havaianas x 2

I need flip flops.

Never did I think I’d utter those words.  Or need to utter those words anyway.

I love these gold-ish Havaianas FIT with the cute back-strap, and have wanted them all spring and summer.  I have just never gone looking for them.

So I went to Havaianas.com last night to see if they were there.

And they were!  But so were these little beauties…. the Origine Ballerina Espadrille.  Leave it to me, to go in wanting one thing…. and leave with two…or three….or four.

Daily Covet: Jimmy Choo wild “kitten” pumps

These kitten pumps are slightly wilder than your average pump in their leopard yumminess.  Wild in print, and demure with a little key hole front, and topped off with a black bow.  Let’s not forget the statement-making patent upper.

I picture these pumps with J. Crews cafe capris in jewel tones come fall.  Or a simple LBD to the wedding we are attending in September.  Or jeans and a bold top for a girls’ night out.  Oh, the possibilities are endless….

Amazingly, these Jimmy Choos are on super sale IN MY SIZE too!

No ordinary Loafers

I went looking for glitter ballet flats.  I love how they look with plain old jeans and a t-shirt and thought it would be great “Mom Street Style.”  Comfortable.  Unexpected.  While I did find quite a few pairs of adorable flats, I fell in love with these glitter loafers more!

Leave glitter loafers to Kate Spade, friends.  Don’t like blue?  They come in black, gold and rose too!  And with a little bow tie to boot….er shoe.
