Weekend Pics

This weekend was the start of my 25th birthday celebrations! My family surprised me on Sunday with a little bday party. It was lovely and I received a lot of thoughtful cards and shoe inspired gifts: 
 My 8 yr. old sister put together a heart filled box full of barbie shoes. So adorbs!
I honestly thought I've seen EVERY birthday shoe card ever made, but apparently not. My parents gave me the cutest card: 
 Just goes to show you...
Shoes can make or break an outfit. Seriously true!!
My other love (besides shoes) is hippos. My 15 yr. old sister gave me the cutest little hippo! Love it. 
A shoe and hippo covered Birthday cake is exactly what I wanted for the big 2... 5! So thoughtful and cute.

Little Black Dress and Cupcake Wine are the perfect gifts for a fashionista's birthday! My Mom gave me the most precious pic of me eating marshmallows at 6 yrs old.
 6 yrs. old vs. almost 25 yrs. old... Kind of scary!
Hope you had a fabulous weekend!!

Valentine's Day

I'm officially in the Valentine's Day spirit!
Love, pink, flowers, hearts = everything I like. I guess you could say I'm a true girly girl at heart. 

Honeydew Ruffle Short Set- these booty shorts are super comfy and flirty! The set is on sale @ Hautelook until Monday morning.

Lanvin Classic Ballerina Flats - bright pink flats are a closet must-have, right?

Sergio Rossi Suede Pumps - kind of deciding whether to get these as my bridesmaid shoes for a summer wedding . It doesn't help that they are on SUPER sale @ The Outnet. Decisions Decisions!

Forget Me Knot Ring - One of the best VDay gifts I've ever received. Cute and simple, but from the heart.

Neiman Marcus Travel Wallet - Reminds me of a pink wallet I had in high school- gotta search my closet.

Christian Louboutin Rolando Pump - 3 Words: PERFECT VDay gift

Tiffany's Love Necklace - Can't really go wrong with Tiffanys!

NARS Nail Polish - Give me an excuse to have red or pink nails and I'll take it.

Friday Eye Candy

It's been a busy week. TGIF! 

I tweeted about these lovelies yesterday but felt they were too beautiful not to post as Eye Candy too: 

Charlotte Olympia at ShopStyle

Charlotte Olympia Canvas Pump for $895 @ Neiman Marcus

They are available in black too:

Glam canvas platforms = heaven! Canvas is the "next step" for the military trend and these are perfect for Spring and Summer. Sigh!!

Just a little Thursday pick-me-up: gorgeous images from the Cesare Paciotti Spring Campaign.

Oh so sexy and luxurious. Notice the chunky heel in the first image? Read last week's post on Bigger heels!

WANTED: Wedges

Craving a pair of fabulous wedges! 

Photos: We Heart It 

As I'm shopping for wedges I find myself being extremely picky. They must be higher than the sky and the wedge must be tapered. Also, a little platform is okay but nothing TOO thick - still want that sleek and sexy silhouette! These babies are on my spring list:

Weekend Pics

I can't believe January is almost over! This weekend was fabulous- filled with good friends, food, and shoes (oohh and a celebrity spotting):
Stopped by the Christian Louboutin store on Robertson to see the latest Eye Candy in real life. Absolutely stunning!

The store is right down the street from The Abbey, where we had a delicious brunch on Saturday. 

Can't do brunch without a few cocktails: Mimosa, Bloody Mary, and Mojito! Brunch outside with yummy cocktails never tasted so good. My best friend was visiting from Baltimore and she seriously enjoyed the amazing 70+ degree weather. 

If you follow me on twitter then you know we spotted Rachel Zoe at the Starbucks on Robertson. Rachel and Rodger were grabbing coffees with their friends. She looked so chic in her signature floppy black hat!

We also ate at Father's Office where I was scolded for taking this picture. (Apparently you can't take pictures of the food there) Either way, I love me some FO. Seriously, the FO burger is out of this world and the aioli that comes with the fries is to die for.

 How was your weekend? Any new shoe purchases? Do tell!!

Questions Answered: J. Crew Nude Flats

After I posted my Stripes and Nude Shoes shop my look, I received a few questions about my J. Crew flats! Unfortunately I've had them for probably 2 years now so they aren't available anymore, however J. Crew comes out with updated versions of the exact same silhouette, season after season! It really is the perfect round toe flat and has JUST the right amount of toe cleavage. (I'm very picky about toe cleavage- haha).

Here is the current style - it is suede with a zip back:

J.Crew at ShopStyle

Zip Back Flats for $128 @ J.Crew 

I wouldn't be surprised if another patent style was released right before summer so I'll make sure to keep an eye out and let you know! J. Crew flats are so durable and comfy. I'm a true size 6 in most shoes and usually order a 5.5 in J. Crew flats because they will stretch. Hope this helps!!

Shop My Look: Stripes & Nude Shoes

 Still not feeling too hot but really loved this outfit and wanted to share (without my face)! I've always been a fan of stripes and knew I had to have this LNA dress when it was featured as the Deal of the Day on Hautelook last week. 

Added a gold belt and military jacket for a little pizzaz. And of course, paired it with my favorite nude J. Crew flats. It's all about nude for spring!

The weather has been so warm that I'm trying to take full advantage!

Bigger Heels...

As heels are growing higher, some are also getting chunkier. Block heels are one of Springs biggest trends. Leave it to Net-A-Porter to make the Block Party happen:

The trend is slowly growing on me! Although I am a fan of sky high stilettos, here are a few of my block favorites:

Topshop at ShopStyle

LIVIA Tan Platform Sandals for $160 @ TopShop

Pair these with wide leg trousers and you have a sexy 70s look. I love the cognac brown color! 

Topshop at ShopStyle

LARK Knotted Sandals for $145 @ Topshop

This coral-ish color is seriously THE color of the season! Did you see all the coral dresses on the Golden Globe's Red Carpet?  Love!

Giuseppe Zanotti at ShopStyle

Giuseppe Zanotti Sandal for $550 @ Net-A-Porter

I have a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti sandals with this same color scheme and finish. I like to see that Mr. Zanotti is re-inventing an old favorite with a new silhouette. 

Thoughts on block heels? Will you embrace them? I would love to know!

Weekend Pics

This past weekend was supposed to be very busy but I am battling some kind of gnarly cold/cough thing so I spent most of it drinking Nyquil and popping cough drops! Surprisingly I managed to take a few fun pics: 
Saturday night the boy and I went to the Nivea For Men Pre-Golden Globe Party at a fabulous mansion in the Hollywood Hills. The theme, Look Like You Give A Damn, was a nod to the well groomed men of the 1960s a la the Rat Pack. I decided to do my best "Hollywood Glam" look: red lips and jeweled accessories. My Giuseppe Zanotti jeweled pumps were the perfect shoes!

The Dessert Room at the Nivea For Men Party was AMAZING. Literally a room full of chocolate, cheesecake bites, candy apples and more. The party was lovely but we left pretty early because my coughing was out of control.

Thursday night (my weekend pics start on Thurs. hehe! ) I went to the newly opened Mas Malo to celebrate one of my friend's birthdays. This is a pic of the BEST DRINK I've ever had: Tequila, Kahlua, and Horchata. Sounds weird but it was unbelievable- perfect mix of cinnamon, sweet and tequila.

Sunday was a gorgeous 80+ degree day here in LA and no matter how sick I felt I was not going to stay in bed all day! Instead I took a stroll down one of my favorite streets, San Fernando in Burbank, and grabbed a refreshing green tea from Sbux. Thought I should capture the moment since we wont be seeing cups like this once the new logo is produced! 

Managed to snag a new coral scarf- embracing color is one of my New Year's resolutions! Slowly but surely.

Did you watch the Golden Globes? Wish the gorgeous shoes weren't hiding under the dresses all night! I Loved Mila Kunis and Olivia Wilde's looks. Also thought Claire Danes looked stunning. Check out my beauty hits and misses post on The Beauty Stop for more.

Hope everyone had a great weekend and if you are lucky enough to have today off then enjoy!!
