YOU CAN ALWAYS COUNT ON PRADA...

...to do something different. I imagine these are quite polarizing...personally, I am all about the shoes for fall 2012. Particularly the orangey leather mary janes with geometric printing. I am a 70's girl at a heart!

Illustrated by Megan Inghram

When I came across this illustration by Megan Inghram, my jaw hit the floor. It really is too amazing for words--I cannot believe how many personal details are hidden in it! I'm holding my chihuahua Kim, wearing my vintage tiger dress and Fantastic Mr. Fox hat, sitting on top of my cat Gish who is wearing my octopus necklace and has my artwork printed on her chest!! All of my shoes and dogs and toys are in there too. I love Megan's whimsical portrait style. You can check out more of her work on her beautiful Tumblr and you can buy her prints here. Thank you so much Megan!

A FEW GOOD THINGS

My favorite shoes on my favorite chair.

A mountain of key lime pie on the Belmont's patio.

Delicious sliders with pickled onion...mmm.

Putting socks on your sleeping corgi's stumpy legs :0)

KILLER BOOTS AT GIVENCHY

These boots were shown at Givenchy's fall 2012 mens show, but modeled by a woman. I think I can safely say they're some of my favorite boots in shoe history. I like the old world craftsmanship about them combined with their futuristic engineering.

Below is the full look! I love how the pailette sweater mimics the brindle in a dogs coat.

THE GOLDEN KEY

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I wanted to take advantage of  this cool spooky light that occured before a big storm blew in. I dug a tutu out of the garage and my mom pulled out this old frame...and right as we were about to leave, the gold Marc by Marc Jacobs boots my mom had ordered from Yoox showed up! It was insanely fun to run through the woods in a princess skirt.

CHANEL FALL 2010

Was so glad to see the faux-fur from Chanel fall 2010 being used in an editorial...I took the photos from Dazed & Confused August issue. Though if I remember correctly the shirt the model is wearing in the above photo is not in fact Chanel...anyways...

Just beyond...!
