ASOS in the USA

In case you haven't heard, online fashion mega store ASOS officially has a USA site that offers free shipping! Obviously this means great things for online shoe shopping. They have an amazing range of shoes anywhere from $14 to $1,000, both trendy and classic. Definitely something for everyone! I was browsing last night and found two favorites:

Asos at ShopStyle

ALPHAN  Leather Multi-Strap Boot for $189

Loving the exterior platform! They are very different from anything I've seen in this price range. Definitely a great Fall find.

TUSCAN Cuff Wedge Boot for $78

Finally, a wedge boot I like that isn't $1,000+!!

Happy Friday!!

Balmain at ShopStyle
Balmain Leopard Print Ankle Boot for $1,510 @ Bergdorfs

I have a picture of these beauties hanging by my desk. I don't think the above picture does the boots justice. They definitely look better in an editorial spread. As you can see, I still haven't gotten my leopard fill this fall.

New York Part Deux...


You know I love gorgeous pumps and platforms, but flats can be fun too:

 Louboutin Flats at Barneys. Spotted a lady wearing the studded pair a couple hours later on 5th Ave. She was carrying a Hermes bag- so fancy! 

LOVE these Lanvin flats. I really am a girly-girl at heart!

Saturday night we went to see Mary Poppins and it was  fantastic. I woke up this morning still singing Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. 

 The weather was absolutely gorgeous on Sunday! 70 degrees and sunny just the way I like it.  

We grabbed coffee and took a walk through Central Park in the AM before heading to SoHo for a little shopping action. 

Surprisingly I didn't buy a single pair of shoes but I'm not sad since I'm trying to save up for a big purchase soon. J. Crew was having a lovely sale and I snagged jeggings & a cardi for less than $50 TOTAL. I know, amazing right? Love J. Crew sales and love NY. Can't wait to go back!

New York...

Sadly, my annual trip to New York is over but it really was a great time! Lots of window shopping, good food, and relaxation. It was nice to get away for the weekend.

Friday we shopped a bit and then headed to Stanton Social for dinner.

 I found this blushed colored ruffle dress at H&M and paired it with a studded belt for a rocker- chic look. Initially I had on my Alexander Wang booties sans tights but that was pretty chilly!

At Stanton Social we had the most amazing warm doughnuts and hot chocolate shots for dessert. Delicious!! 

Of course I took a billion shoe pics:

The above Top Shop boots look very Burberry-esque!

Friday Eye Candy in real life! Gorgeous Fendi Sandals.

McQueen at Bergdorfs

Platform booties EVERYWHERE

Louboutin at Barneys

 Glitter Pumps at J. Crew's Bridal Store. 
Seriously makes me want a pair of glitter shoes!

Not sure who I was kidding in my tights-less bootie outfit so I did a shoe change before we went out:

I bought these boots last year when I was in NYC!

More NEW YORK shoe pics to come!!

Look for Less: Alexander Wang Wedges

I'm back from New York and had a spectacular time ( NY pics coming soon). Before I jumped on my flight to NY, I grabbed INSTYLE's October Issue and spotted the most amazing pair of shoes. 

Remember these Alexander Wang wedges:

Yes, they are OMG but they also retail for $700.

Now, look at these

Nina 'Yaneli' Wedge for $109
Obviously they aren't EXACTLY the same, but they have the same 4" wedge and are leopard too! The best part is- if you sign up for Nina's e-mail list you get 20% off a purchase online so that makes these babies less than $100. They come in a sand suede and black too- LOVE!

Friday Eye Candy

Hello from New York!

Jimmy Choo at ShopStyle

Jimmy Choo Peep- Toe Snake Skin Booties for $1,695 @ Net-A-Porter

I'm pretty much in love with every fabulous black bootie out there, but must restrain myself from buying all of them. Love the different details on the Jimmy Choos- they are sexy!!

Happy Friday!

Simply Stylist Event Pics

Last night I went to the Simply Stylist event that I posted about a couple weeks ago and it was fabulous! Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to meet Pursuit giveaway winner, Kristen, but hopefully she found all of the stylist to be as informative as I did. 

Simply Stylist set-up camp on La Brea Avenue. Apparently there is a huge project (The La Brea Project) in the works to revamp 6+ blocks of La Brea Ave. into a retail mega street with pop-up shops and more. This is seriously exciting because my new home is right off La Brea!

I briefly spoke to stylist Monica Rose and told her how much I love her work and what she's done for Kim Kardashian's look. Of course I mentioned Pursuit and my appreciation of how she mixes highs and lows. Check out our pics below:

 She is so nice! It was great to hear her story and path to becoming the stylist she is today. 

We kind of matched, huh? Black and animal prints! How amazing are her leopard pants? She might be the only person EVER who could pull them off. (Rumor has it they are from H&M)

SHOES- Monica wore Casadei platforms and I wore the Alexander Wang booties I got at the Barneys Warehouse Sale. LOVE the shoe choices!

New Shoe Closet...

They are finally done! After a little sweat and help from the boy, the shoe cabinets are complete:

My wall decorations aren't up yet, but now that I've put all my shoes away I can finally start getting things in order. I received a couple e-mails asking me where I found these lovely shelves and the answer is the oh-so-fabulous IKEA. 

Billy Extra Shelf $10 - I bought a few extra shelves for each case to accommodate all of the shoes.
Glass Doors are from IKEA but not "Billy". Can't seem to find the exact ones online but these are pretty close.

Tip: Definitely have a second person to help with the doors. Someone tall is always a plus!

I decided to put my jeans and some sweaters in the "flats" cabinet because I like to have them out where I can see them. Sandals didn't make the cabinet cut so they are on the floor in my actual closet.

Tip: For flats, take a pair with you when you buy the bookcase. My shoes fit PERFECTLY but I'm a size 6. Not sure what is the biggest size the cabinet can accommodate. 

Few pics inside:

Joining the Ranks...

Call me crazy but initially I wasn't the biggest fan of the cargo resurgence. Large pockets on the side of women's thighs doesn't seem the most flattering to me but needless to say cargos started growing on me. 

Now, I wasn't willing to throw out $100s of dollars on pair of J. Brand Houlihans so I kept my eye open for a great look for less.

Ta Da! $19 Cargo Jeggings from American Eagle (On sale from $50). They are beyond comfy and fit perfectly. Love!

Paired with my favorite L.A.M.B shoes.
and my go-to Michael Kors   bag. Such an easy outfit. What
are your thoughts on Cargos?
