I'm about to head out the door to leave for a week in Mexico. I've been packing frantically...that's the best time to do an honest assessment of your wardrobe I've found. If I could add a few luxurious basics to my bag...I would go for these! I'm going to be in the mountains, and it's going to be perfect sweater weather. Now THAT is a vacation!

I am so excited to share my pictures from my trip--look here soon!

3. ASOS Aztec waist belt

Chloé has reissued these studded buckle ankle boots in every color imaginable over the past few seasons. Why shouldn't they? Anyone spending any amount of time looking at street style blogs online has seen this shoe a billion times and it still hasn't worn out it's welcome. It's such a good shoe. I am dying over this python version. The classic black is perfect too.

There are quite a few shoes I wish would make a comeback!! Until then, ebay scouting is my best hope. Here are some of my top picks for shoes to be reissued.


1. Prada fall 2006

2. Balenciaga spring 2006

3. Chloe spring 2008

I love how a few masculine additions can ground an outfit. I'm pretty sure I've been wearing this Rugby bandana with every outfit I've had on for a week straight. I even wore it when I went swimming! Either I need to give the bandanas a rest or buy a few more...can't decide which yet, but I'm leaning towards the latter.

The pointelle skirt and linen striped blazer with a peplum are both from Rugby. The patent and leather tri-color brogues are Comme des Garcons. They are secretly my favorite pair of flat shoes.

If I had to compile a list of the top five shoes I wish I owned, these mask shoes from the Wunderkind fall 2010 show would always be on there.

I'm feeling a little guilty for ignoring my other shoes. I've only been wearing two pairs of shoes for the last few months. One is a pair of punky 90's Alexander McQueen slingbacks I picked up in the middle of nowhere and the other is a pair of extremely skinny Roberto Cavalli sandals from the early 00's I stole from my mom. Kind of random choices, but their simplicity makes them so freaking easy!

Sexy skinny strappy sandals are what I'm all about right now...they look good with everything and after years and years of out-of-control platforms, they're a breath of fresh air! When I saw these Jean-Michel Cazabat shoes marked down at Barney's I knew they'd be a good buy. So far I've worn them every day since I got them.

Here is an equally fluorescent purse that Meredith Wendell gave me...went well with the shoes!

Here is my new phone case I designed using Zazzle...so cool!

Lately I am having so much fun with dressing up. This unbearable Texas heat can really take the fun out of fashion, but with a little imagination, you can get away. I like this idea I am playing with of being your own Barbie doll, and superimposing yourself into any situation you could dream up. That is what fashion is about, isn't it?? Thanks Photoshop for bringing this reality closer!
