Shop My Look: Royal Blue Denim

Colored denim is probably my favorite trend right now. For someone who wears jeans as much as I do, they're simply fabulous and fun. Paired GAP royal blue jeans and a neon striped top with sky high wedges for a sunny Sunday look:

Friday Eye Candy: Vionnet Sandal

Happy Friday! Hope your week was lovely.

If you can't tell, I'm totally on the spring train already:

Sole Society 'Sasha'

It's the final days of January {2012 is already flying}! Last night I did a quick browse on Sole Society to make sure I didn't miss any fab January styles...then I spotted Sasha:

Hello Spring must-have! 

Sasha, you are so special with your neutral color that will work perfectly with colored denim looks and Spring neon ensembles. Your embossed lizard and ankle strap details add just the right amount  of "umph" for the season.

Weekend Pics

Happy Monday! The weekend flew by but I manged to get in some good friend time and football watching:

Friday night drinks and dinner at Belgian Beer Cafe,  Little Bear

Saturday Aaron and I met for a quick lunch at Cheesecake and I did some shopping.

Stopped by Gap and fell in love with all of the color! I need the denim and neon flats ASAP.

Picked up an early birthday gift from Sephora. Do you use Sugar? I've been dying to try!

Also grabbed some NARS bronzer - Laguna is my fav. Don't you love opening new makeup?

Snagged a lovely scarf from Target

Sunday was a rough day because our 49ers lost. It was a great season and such a terrible loss. Tears!

KB made the loss all better with a little Sunday evening dinner party

  Hope you had a fabulous weekend!

Wedge War: Zanotti vs. Simpson


Looks like Jessica Simpson took a cue from Giuseppe Zanotti's S/S '11. 
Looks can be deceiving but the prices definitely aren't:



... and the winner is?

Shop My Look: Winter Stripes

Let's face it, us normal people wear the same clothes more than once. I love the challenge of taking a summer dress and creating a seasonal look.... just a little shoe switch & some layers:

Weekend Pics: Football

Hello Monday! My weekend was consumed by playoff football, 49ers to be exact. {We Won!} However I stole the remote for a few minutes to watch the Golden Globes Red Carpet. What did you think?

Loved the red carpet trend of neutral dresses with a hint of old Hollywood glam! Charlize Theron rocked it but I wasn't really moved by any one else. You?

Friday's Shoes from the Shoe Challenge 

KB and I did a little mid-week ice skating

 Gorgeous flowers outside Starbucks

Showing our 49ers spirit

Have a great week!

Looking forward to watching some playoff football this weekend and enjoying our lovely LA weather. Check these out: 


Such a fine looking sandal! Love the tan color with the bright beaded accents. Can you say Resort perfection? Get me a kaftan and a cocktail!

Happy Weekend Shoe Lovers.

Shoe Glossary

 Last night while I was browsing Nine West, I noticed a small link at the bottom of the page titled Shoe Glossary. It's a fabulous page filled with shoe terms and definitions. 


Did you know...

Apron Toe
An overlay on the front of the shoe with distinct edges or stitching.
 
Lift
One of the layers of leather which composes the heel of a shoe.

Vamp
The front center part of a shoe upper covering the toes and part of the foot.
 
Wedge Heel
A heel that lies flat to the ground and extends from the shank to the back of the shoe.

I just think it's super cute that they have it!

Weekend Pics: La Brea Tar Pits & Wine


Sometimes it's so nice not to have a jam packed weekend. This weekend I didn't schedule anything and boy was it relaxing and productive! 
 A little Friday night glass of wine with KB

Broke in the new shoes at Runyon Canyon on Saturday AM

Did a little book re-organization... love me some Tori Spelling!

Fishtail detail from yesterday's look

On Sunday, Mr. Pursuit and I walked over to the La Brea Tar Pits for an afternoon date. Reminded me of childhood field trips -it was lovely!

Cheers to a great week!
