Red, White and Nude

I've been on a quest for red jeans for a couple weeks now. And in my head I've created all these imaginary outfits with my future red jeans - most include nude shoes!  To me, the combination of red, white and nude hues is very sophisticated yet sassy.

Polka dots that will go perfect with red!

Gotta have 'em.

I spotted these at Nordis on Saturday and kind of fell in love. They pretty much scream "Ashley". Nude, bow sandals- what could be more perfect for spring/summer? 

Every girl needs ruby red heels! They are POWER shoes. (Friday's Eye Candy)

Put a bow on anything (most anything) and I'm an automatic fan. Bows are the way to my heart, after shoes of course. 
I don't usually like big rings but this one caught my eye because of the white bead details.

RM makes the most amazing handbags and leather accessories. She just came out with shoes too!

Love the hidden platform and perfect little "peep".

Weekend Pics

 This weekend was filled with the color blue! 
Earlier in the week I found out I was invited to Perez Hilton's Blue Ball birthday bash and then spent the weekend searching for a blue outfit, attending the Blue Ball and blogging about it! Here are some fun pics:

Blue outfit meant an excuse to wear my blue Manolos. Love these babies but they don't get out much!

 Blue Ball blue carpet- found this ruffle dress at H&M.

Happy Birthday Perez!

Bridget Marquardt looked stunning.

Blue mani was a must.

Sunday night the boy and I vegged out on Mozza2Go thanks to BBE. Felt so good to relax!

Check out my coverage of Perez Hilton's Blue Ball on Allie is Wired. Happy Monday All.

Barbie Pink

I'm still looking for the perfect pink heels to pair with my bridesmaid dress for a July wedding. Surprisingly, I'm the last lady in the bridal party to buy her shoes. Picky Picky! Sometimes I think Barbie {circa 1990} wouldn't have this problem:

You'll be the first to know when I find the winners. Happy Wednesday!

Crush On Coral

Over the weekend I found a fabulous coral dress at It's A Wrap and when I told my friend Heather she said "you're obsessed with coral right now." I admit it, I kind of have a crush on coral. At least that means I've moved on from leopard. Okay, not really... but here are some gorgeous coral finds:

 Coral flats with bedazzled stars on the toe?! Yes, please. A true girly girls dream.

Love my coral Kyla platforms from SS. A simple silhouette with a gorgeous POP of color. They are only available until the end of March, so hurry hurry. Join Now!

Every shoe lover must have a "gigi" in her closet. It's the perfect go-to sandal for summer and comes in a billion colors.

Luscious leather in a beautiful hue- ahh I want! Oh ya, and it's Marc.

I've posted about these before but couldn't help sharing them again. Love the bows!

Weekend Pics

The weekend was lovely! The past few weekends have been so busy that I took Saturday to have a relaxing "me" day: pedicure, shopping, eyebrow grooming and a healthy dinner with a good friend. "Me" days are necessary every now and then. Here are a few pics from the past week: 

Wednesday I went to a fashion show at supperclub hosted by THV PR.

Wore my leopard platforms.

Friday, after stopping by Fashion Minga at Blvd3 we went to in-n-out for a very late dinner. Love me some animal fries!

 Had a fun Sunday boozy brunch with friends at Luna Park. I am easily entertained by the plastic cocktail mermaids.

Hope your weekend was great! It's going to be a rainy week in LA.... yay {sarcastically}!!

Pursuing Hidden Platforms Under $150

Always keeping my eye out for fabulous finds under $150! Here are a few hidden platform pumps: 

Topshop at ShopStyle

Spear Apricot Contrast Heel Platforms for $140 @ Top Shop

These remind me of a pair of Brian Atwood Pumps. The front looks so simple but the metallic heel adds an element of sexiness. 

Luxury Rebel at ShopStyle

Luxury Rebel 'Sakuru' for $99 @ Bloomingdales

Perforated details are very hott right now. I like the grey color because it will go with anything!

Asos at ShopStyle

ASOS 'Polly' Leather Court Shoe for $81 @ Asos

The perfect coral pump to go with any spring look. Enough said. 

Vince Camuto at ShopStyle

Milesy Midnight for $118 @ Vince Camuto

Working blue pumps into an outfit may be tough but when done right, it looks oh-so chic!!

Feeling Stud-ly

Last Fall, Pursuit of Shoes did a collaboration with VAMPD Magazine for their Anniversary Issue. As part of the collaboration, I featured FW 2010's best shoes, LA's favorite shoe stores and up & coming brand Penelope and Coco.
  Penelope & Coco was created by Designer Marisa Spinella in her search to find the perfect pair of shoes without a 5” heel. Her love of fashion and incredible footwear brought her to create a line inspired by her duo personalities, Penelope & Coco. By intertwining dainty details and bold risqué styles, the brand’s first collection was born: The Classic Boot Collection

The Classic Boot Collection was just the beginning for this talented and unique designer. P&C's Spring 2011 line, The Oxfords, brings the same eccentric yet girly combination to a whole new silhouette. One of my favorite styles from The Oxfords is the Noel- look at the studded heel detail. A hint of glam is all you need!

What do you think? Aren't they fab!?
Shop The Oxfords here. Looking forward for to the next P&C collection. Can't wait!

Weekend Pics

Hello Monday! Another busy weekend in LA filled with yummy food, fabulous friends and new shoes. Also a St. Patty's Day Mani... 

 Friday was such a beautiful sunny day and with the sun brings lovely spring Jimmy Choo sandals! 

 Saturday I enjoyed the new Sunset Margarita at Islands- Yum!

Did a little shopping in Old Town Pasadena and picked up a fab pair of wedges from Zara.

Sunday we went to Street for Girls Brunch and started our meal with Singapore Kaya Toast. So different but delicious.

In honor of St. Patrick's Day I did a little green and gold mani. Check out my how-to on The Beauty Stop.

Happy Monday everyone!
