Weekend Pics

Happy Halloween! I hope your weekend was fabulous. Mine was full of Halloween festivities and fun costumes:

Friday was a leopard day!

In the evening we celebrated our friend Raquel's Birthday @ the oh-so-yummy Bottega Louie.

Saturday was the SC vs. Stanford game. SC had a heartbreaking loss that ended after 3 OTs.  {Tears!}

Although we were sad about the outcome of the game, we managed to rally for an evening of Halloween fun! Hello, Chiquita Banana Lady.

Sunday Bourbon and Bleu had a lovely potluck and we brought this festive Halloween wine.

I also brought out a casual Minnie Mouse... 

...who, of course, only wears bow adorned Christian Louboutin heels!

What did you dress up as? Today, I'm a cheerleader!

I'm so happy it's Friday! What are your Halloween plans? I'm going to a few fun parties and dressing up as the Chiquita Banana lady.

The Holidays are upon us:

Holiday heels are my favorite because they are so girly and flashy. How sexy is this J. Choo heel? 

Have an AMAZING weekend!

Pinterest Picks

My love for Pinterest is still going strong and lately I've been using it to plan Mr. Pursuit of Shoes' 30th Birthday party, gather beauty ideas and find outfit inspirations! {Don't forget to follow me} Here are a few of my recent favs:

Are you a Snap-Happy Fashionista? Well there is an App for that! 

My newest app obsession is Snapette, a fabulous feed of shoe and accessory eye candy.

Like instagr.am you can follow users, heart there images and comment; however, Snapette allows you tag designer names and locations for your images. 

My absolute favorite part about Snapette is that you also have a constant feed of what's Hot, New and Near. Near allows you to see all the gorgeous items that are in your area {i.e: I live by The Grove and have a constant stream of the newest shoes at Nordstrom, Zara and J. Crew}.  Awesome, right?

You can find me on Snapette as PursuitofShoes. Check it out!

Shop My Look: Leopard {Part 5}

You thought I forgot about my leopard shirt didn't you? Of course not! Now that Fall is here, the leopard shirt is officially a great layering piece. It was a bit chilly yesterday so I decided to bring out my new OTK boots and create this super easy outfit:

 Psst...Don't forget to check out leopard part ONE , TWO , THREE and FOUR!

Bow Love

It's no secret that I have a tiny infatuation with bows {yes, leopard has competition} and recently my bow lust has grown out of control! There are so many fab shoes, I just have to share:
Bow shoes add the perfect girly touch plus they are so fun for the Holidays! What's not to love?

Weekend Pics

 It's funny how the weekends always go by so fast!  This weekend I went Halloween costume shopping, celebrated my Step-Dad's 50th birthday {Happy Birthday Dan!} and spent a lot of time with the boy:

Friday night a few of us went to Public School 612 for happy hour. Seriously yum!

We ended up playing at the lights by LACMA

Saturday KB and I went Halloween costume shopping on Magnolia in Burbank. If you live in LA and want to find a unique costume that won't break the bank, Burbank is the way to go. 

Brian Atwood's for Dan's 50th Birthday Party!

Sunday's outfit -loving my animal print belt right now

Spent Sunday by the lake in Westlake Village. Talk about serene and beautiful!

TGIF! Getting my hair cut this weekend, nothing drastic, just excited for healthy hair. Any fun plans for you lovelies?

Christian Louboutin at ShopStyle
 Christian Louboutin No. 299 for $1,195 @ Net-A-Porter

Talk about a stunning! They have a sexy little mary jane-esque action to them and the textured python heel is to.die.for. The shape kind of reminds me of the Nine West 'aroundtown'.
Have a lovely weekend!

Kim Kardashian's Wedding Shoes

Were you one of the 10.5 million viewers who tuned in to watch Kim Kardashian's Wedding Special? I caught up last night (thank you DVR) and loved every second of it.

The days leading up to her wedding, the internet was buzzing about her dress, but you know there was only one thing on my mind: "What shoes is she going to wear?!"

Kim wore three pairs of custom made Giuseppe Zanotti heels to go with her three different Vera Wang gowns. Check them out:

The first is a basic satin slingback platform, the second a closed toed satin platform with crystal heel detail and the third, a beaded slingback platform. 

What do you think? 
 I'm not a big white satin shoe fan and kind of expected more from Kim. However, two of them are very classic and all three definitely have a great platform, which helps when you are 5'2" marrying someone who is 6'9".

If you are loving, the Giuseppe Zanotti Bridal Collection features tons of gorgeous shoes- many that have a striking resemblance to Kim's.

Congrats Kim & Kris!!

Shop My Look: Red + Pink

I've been eying the red + pink trend for awhile now, wondering how us normal folk could pull it off or rather how I could make it work by shopping my closet.

I took a basic jeans and tee look and spiced it up with my fab 'Ashley' heels c/o  Sole Society. Ohh and the lovely team at Poshlocket sent me the perfect bracelet to wear. It's all the wrist candy you need, wrapped up in one bracelet. Amazing!
