It’s Beginning to Feel a Lot Like Christmas

After a trip to Ikea last weekend, our townhome is starting to feel a little more put together. We purchased some shelving and book cases so we could de-clutter our counters. It’s starting to look less like a college student’s apartment. With our newly added space, I now have space to make things more festive. I love the Holidays, and I can’t wait to add some more decorations to the house.

For now, I’m dreaming of snow, hot cocoa, and holiday parties.

New Lina Zeineddine ‘Scarlett’ Pumps – What would you pair with them?

I finally received my first pair of Lina Zeineddines, and I adore them! I love heels but usually find them unbearable to stand in. Not with these. They are padded on the inside and unbelievably comfortable to stand in.

This pair is called Scarlett. I want to know what you would pair with them? Who is Scarlett?

I’m looking forward to the upcoming line, which I was able to peak at when I picked these up. There are some classic and stylish designs to look forward to & I’m sure I’ll be picking up another pair soon. Lina’s shoes don’t compromise style for comfort but combine both qualities successfully. I’m in love and can’t wait to add to my collection!

For the Love of Shoes: Victoria Spruce

With all the shoe posts lately, this seems to be morphing into a shoe and electronica blog. The design gods must have been smiling on me when I started working with a Seattle area fashion designer for her graphics, and she went the way of a shoe line…I’ve become a shoe fiend and nothing is more fun than being able to pick out a pair of shoes that have the logo you created on them!

I just love shoes. I try to be picky about what I post on this blog, I don’t want to overload with mediocre, everyday shoes. I love fresh and innovative designs, and Victoria Spruce might just take the cake in both categories.

I can’t find much on the designer other than she is recently graduated and is based in London. She’s on my radar and I hope her collection takes off. I think in some cases, pictures speak louder than words and this is one of those cases.

For the Love of Shoes: United Nude

I’ve been sitting on this brand a while & am finally posting! What a beautiful collection I have stumbled upon.

I love the clean and modern design of this brand, United Nude. Even the most intricate, detailed piece is sharp. Structurally the shoes are a work of art and are beautiful to look at, and as they should be. They are the product of collaboration between an architect and shoemaker–such clean, innovative design should be expected from such a pair, and they deliver it well.

Check out the United Nude spring/summer collection.
I think I’ll be snatching up a pair or few before summer officially hits.

For the Love of Shoes: Bright & Neon Glam

Perhaps the cold & winter is finally getting to me, especially being snowed in and sick doesn’t help. On top of that, all the travel documentaries I have been watching are giving me & my boyfriend the travel bug. We are determined to plan a vacation somewhere warm. Bright colored outfits and sandy exotic beaches have been on my mind.

I’m also loving the color blocking trend for spring & summer and there have been some incredibly vibrant shoes I’ve had my eye on, which just add to the longing for warm weather.

I do love neon and bright bright colored shoes for the warmer months. A relatively neutral colored outfit with brightly colored shoes can be so simple yet eye catching. Designer Ruthie Davis is always postings photos to her Facebook Page of herself in her shoes, and the outfits are always so well put together.

Ruthie Davis is perhaps one of my new favorite designers, and I love the boldness of her collections. The designs are edgy, fierce and stand out. Her upcoming spring/summer collection is vibrant and fierce, and I love how bold and unique the designs are.

Giuseppe Zanotti has some bright and vibrant shoes as well, some following the color blocking trend.

Also loving some of the bright Brian Atwood pieces for his resort collection.

I’m looking forward to spring and summer like never before! Fashion trends for the warm months have me dreaming even more. Now if only this snow would stop. Seattle shuts down when this happens, and it has been one of the worst snow storms in a while.

Conveniently, I live in one of the spots that has seen snow everyday for the past 6 days.

Brrr!
