Shoe-spiration for a Gloomy Day

Today in New York, it’s absolutely disgusting out. It’s one of those days where, if I were still in college, I would’ve skipped classes and spent the day with my friends on the couch, watching our favorite girly movies and drinking coffee. I had a pretty fail morning: my umbrella broke, my hood wouldn’t stay on because of the wind, etc. But the sight of these shoes made me forget about my bad hair day.

Nothing like a pair of sparkly, pink, bowed heels to cheer me up on a rainy day! These would be perfect for the upcoming holiday party season. But with a $325 price tag, I’ll have to admire from afar. They’re beautiful, aren’t they?!

 

 

Rebecca Minkoff Launches Shoe Collection for Spring 2011

Ever since Rebecca Minkoff busted onto the scene a couple of years ago with her collection of perfect, buttery classic leather bags (with a twist of course), she’s gained quite a cult following. These days, you can barely open a magazine without seeing one of her bags featured as an Editor’s pick. It goes without saying that I’m very excited for the launch of Rebecca Minkoff’s line of footwear, which promises to be classic yet sassy, sweet… with the perfect amount of edge.

I could totally see myself living in both these tan leather ankle boots with a modest heel, and these completely unique perforated tan flats (love the zippers). The black wedges are the perfect amount of drama for a night out. They would look amazing with skinny jeans, a black tee, and an arm full of Rebecca Minkoff bracelets. The shoe collection will be priced from $160-395. If Rebecca Minkoff’s shoes are anything like her bags, apparel, bracelets, etc, they’ll be on the feet of every fashion-forward celebrity, and made to last.

Favorite Spring Bag Must-Haves

I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect spring bag. And since I’m a bag person, the pursuit usually lasts a longgg time and the list gets long. Luckily, I’ve narrowed down my wish list to just TWO perfect spring bags.

Coach “Kristen” Leather Large Hobo in Taupe ($398)

I fell in LOVE with Coach’s Kristen Collection when I first saw it showcased on my favorite personal style blogger: Jessica Schroeder of What I Wore. I love everything about this bag. It’s classic and lady like, and also incredibly functional. It’s large enough for my everyday mess of stuff and the leather is super soft and light weight. Also, the bag can be worn cross body, as shown by Jessica here, or over the shoulder. I love the Taupe color because the color would look good with everything, and it’s season-less.

The Rebecca Minkoff MAC (like all of her bags) is a wardrobe staple. I’ve been looking to add one to my collection for a while, and I LOVE this color for spring. Muted enough to mix and match with anything, this Pansy MAC is perfection! I love the MAC because it’s a little bit edgy and versatile. It’s roomy enough for the essentials, but doesn’t weigh you down. Also, I’m obsessed with the new lining for Spring 2010. Rebecca Minkoff is known for her attention to detail, and I always look forward to the fun surprise inside!
