For the Guys: TOMS Lace-Ups

I spotted one of my good friends wearing a pair of awesome lace-ups and was surprised to find out they were TOMS! Don't get me wrong, I've always loved the TOMS Shoes concept: buy a pair, they give a pair but the basic shoe just really isn't my "style". The lace-ups are totally different though! Guys look at these:

The best part is they have a hidden elastic strap for secure fit even without laces. You get two for one: slip ons & lace ups!

Sex and the City 2

I went to see Sex and the City 2 on Monday night with two of my bestest friends. In true girly fashion, we met for a glass of wine before the film and gabbed about what to expect- it was quite lovely.  Check out my thoughts on the movie below and my favorite SATC 2 shoes:

The girls and me.

Had to wear these beauties:

Elizabeth & James Platform Pumps that I just Love Love Love!

My thoughts on the movie:
I don't know why the critics were so disappointed because I thought it was really enjoyable and entertaining. I appreciated the serious storyline of marital problems and kids and although some of the writing wasn't the best, the jaunt to the Middle East was fabulous and made me want a vaca. The clothes were okay- a few great pieces here and there- but I do think Miranda looked the best she has in years and finally got a great wardrobe. Can we talk about Carrie's/SJP's boobs? I mean they were OUT there the WHOLE movie and I'm pretty sure they ranged in sizes. Very interesting!  And the SHOES... oh the shoes were lovely! It was so great to see a mix of designers other than 100% Louboutin or Manolo. 

Here are my favs:

 Carrie in Brian Atwood 'Loca'

Not sure about the whole "crown" look but she was wearing some gorgeous Charlotte Olympia pumps in the wedding scene.They were very similar to the 'Dolly's' below but in black:
