Christian Louboutin Fifi 100 for $550 @ MyTheresa

I'm going to be in a wedding next year and we are all wearing pink heels so I'm keeping my eye out for a fabulous pair. The Fifi 100 has such a classic shape and I love the fuschia pink color. 

See you in 2011!

Fantasy Shopping

I'm starting one of my New Year's Resolutions early: save save save! With all the after Christmas sales I've been tempted but so far so good. Instead of purchasing I thought making a Fantasy shopping list would make things a bit easier.

Catbird Alphabet Rings -  I fell in love with these rings the second I saw them. They are stackable and available in silver & gold. The heart would make a perfect Valentines Day gift!

Michael Kors iPhone Wristlet -  An iphone case that has space for your credit cards too- SO GENIUS! 

Asos Clutch  - Love envelope clutches 

Cole Haan Boots -  Can't really go wrong with Nike Air Technology in a fabulous looking boot

F21 Dress - Reminds me of SJP's Halston Heritage Dress from SATC

Today's Shoes...

Wearing my Pelle Moda Sachet Booties today and I'm so tall. Yay!  I Took some fun pics last night with the Hipstamatic App on my iPhone. 

I've been looking for a pair of lace-up peep toe booties and was so happy when the lovely ladies at Pelle Moda sent these over.

Weekend Pics

I can't believe Christmas is over already.  2011 here we come!  
I hope you all had a joyous and happy Christmas with your loved ones. I received a lot of shoe inspired gifts- obviously my family and friends know me too well.

 Santa brought me the next book in the Shopaholic Series. Can't wait to read it!

  A good friend gave me this adorable shoe candle. 

Mommy and Me shoe pic! I bought my mom a cute pair of GAP flats as part of her Christmas gift. 

Apparently the boy reads my blog because this was one of my presents! Glad I have new shoes for every day in 2011. 

Did you get new shoes or shoe inspired presents for Christmas?  I would love to hear!

Dreaming About...

Sparkles!! They are just so festive and glamorous. Also, much better than wellies and rain boots.

Hope everyone is having a good week. I'm ready for Christmas to be here NOW!

Holiday Shoes and Parties

I'm officially in the Holiday Spirit! It only took two Holiday parties and lots of Christmas Gift Shopping to finally happen. Thank goodness since Christmas is only days away.  Last Thursday we had our work Holiday party at the Roosevelt Hotel and I brought out the Holiday heels for the first time. Of course I wore them again for Saturday's Annual Holiday Party at our apartment.

 Skirt and Headband- H&M, Shoes- DSQAURED2, Tank- Theory
My best friend and I love getting dressed up for our Annual Holiday Parties so I went all out with a bow headband, green skirt and my candy cane heels. I spotted the skirt on Stylist Monica Rose's blog back in October. When I went to NY a couple months ago I bought it knowing I wanted to wear it for our party. Love it!

Here is a close up of my Holiday Shoes:
 At 5.5" these are the highest shoes I own and they are oh so spectacular and festive!  

Holiday nails:
'Gold for Me' top coat- $9 @ OPI for Sephora

 Skirt- Forever 21 inspired by Marc by Marc Jacobs, Blazer- H&M, Shoes- DSQUARED2
This was one of those outfits that just came together. The blazer has leather lapels which gives it a unique touch and the skirt is what I like to call 'recession chic'.

 One more shot of the shoes:
 The 1" gold platform adds just the perfect amount of pizazz.

GIVEAWAY: Heel Condoms

 If you saw my weekend pics post last week then you got a sneak peak of Heel Condoms. Heel Condoms are the next big thing in shoe accessories! The "Condom", which comes in different styles and colors, simply pulls over your stiletto heel to add a unique touch of flair.

Featured on CNN, Coco Perez, Glamour Mag and more, these accessories will revitalize any shoe collection over and over again. They are perfect for travel and offer protection from scuffed heels. The fabulous Designer, Sandrysabel Ortiz sent over a few for me to try out and I absolutely love them.

See more pictures and information below plus details on the Pursuit of Shoes GIVEAWAY!

These add instant sex appeal. LOVE! They are very easy to pull over your heel and have an elastic strap that goes under your foot to securely hold them on. Sounds funky but it works and is totally unnoticeable. 

The Heel Condoms come in small packaging for storage and travel.

How perfect are the Leopard and Bow condoms? You know I am currently having a leopard obsession plus I love ANYTHING with bows. It's almost like they were designed for me! They really look seamless on the shoe too.

The collection features everything from bows and flowers to feathers and buttons. Styles range from  $20-$30 and can seriously give new life to any heel! You can shop the Heel Condom Collection Here.

Red Red Wine...

Maybe it's just the Holidays but lately I am very drawn to the color red!
I don't have very many red hued pieces in my closet and am definitely on the hunt. Loving these:

How's your gift shopping going?  I'm 85% done and hoping to knock everything out this weekend. 

Happy Wednesday!
