It's been awhile since a Show Me Your Shoes post and I have a few pics I've been hoarding:

 KB shows off her newest J. Crew purchase: summer sale sandals!

Loving the brown wedges that Kally is wearing. They are perfect for summer!

Da Fashionista rocks gorgeous Miu Miu platform sandal.

My high heel girl, Tina, loves her black patent slingbacks. Sexy!

KB might love leopard as much as I do. Talk about animal print in full force!

Yay- it's so great to see all your lovely shoes. This is fun!!

B Brian Atwood

It's finally here... the first collection for B Brian Atwood. Brian Atwood is an amazing shoe designer who created my favorite blue Felini pumps! His new B Brian Atwood line offers incredible & wearable designs, at significantly lower price points. The line ranges from $150-650 and includes everything from seasonal sandals to contemporary boots. 

Back in February, Brian described the line saying:
There’s three kinds of aesthetics melted together: Upper East Side poshness, mixed with downtown cool, along with a Parisian sophistication.

You can view the entire collection on the B by Brian Atwood site and pre-order exclusively online on Saks Fifth Avenue.

Here are a few of my favorites from the first collection:

 Fab! The materials are luxe and I just love the individual details on each pair.  The entire collection will be available in stores starting 8.15.

What do you think of the first B Brian Atwood Collection?

Weekend Pics

How is it the end of July already? The summer is flying by!

This weekend I went to a wedding, relaxed a bit and attended the premiere of Eva Longoria's new film, Without Men. Ooh and I got a new iphone app that makes weekend pics even more fun!

My PLV Wedges arrived on Friday. They are so high but I love them!

Earlier in the week I did a pink sparkly mani. I'm almost out of my gold glitter top-coat. Eek!

My sister and I at our family friend's wedding.

Fun paper ball lanterns at the backyard wedding reception.

 The Without Men premiere was at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood and Eva Longoria looked spectacular on the red carpet. I've loved Edward James Olmos since Selena {one of my fav movies ever} so it was great to see him on the carpet too. Check out Allie is Wired on Tuesday for full report of the movie premiere!

Hope you all had a fab weekend!!

Shop My Look: Maxi Love

You might not believe it, but this is the first maxi dress I've ever owned! Weird, I know.  For a long time I had this impression that maxi dresses would overpower my petite frame but then I finally tried one and ta da... I heart them! Adding a fabulous wedge gives extra height too. Loving this look:

Pursuit Poll: Shoe Shopping Habits

 With more and more "flash sale" and deal sites popping up, it seems like shoes are barely full price on the department store floor/online before they are marked down. Retail markets are changing and our purchasing habits are too. Honestly, I can't remember the last pair of shoes I bought for full price!

Tell me: Are you more inclined to buy a pair of shoes on sale? Do you hold off on a shoe purchase because you know they will go on sale? Do you always buy full price?

Vote at the poll on the right side-bar  (yes, the one right there)!

Results will be up next week. Check back to see how you match up with other Pursuit readers!

Shop My Look: Color Blocking

I had a little dilemma when deciding what shoes to pair with my rehearsal dress but ended up going with my blue Brian Atwood pumps. They created a fun color blocking ensemble:

Weekend Pics

This weekend I celebrated one of my best friend's weddings! It was magical and perfect. I can't tell you how happy I was to be a part of it. Here are a few pics from the wedding festivities:

The day before the wedding we all went to get mani-pedis. The bride gave us matching pink flip-flops that definitely came in handy on the wedding day. Perfect idea!

Beautiful roses from Sherman Gardens where we enjoyed a yummy bridesmaid lunch on Friday. 

Pre-wedding photos: Heather's gorgeous fuchsia Christian Louboutins

Bridesmaids' shoes - different hues of pink

The heading on the wedding menu. Oh.em.gee the food was delicious. Congratulations Heather & Josh!

My bridesmaid shoes that kept me dancing all night long.


A gift from Heather, the bride. Reading the card makes me cry. Saturday was such a special day filled with so much love. I heart weddings!

I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. Hopefully shooting another vlog soon - wooo hoo!!
