I love the beautiful sleeve on this blouse from Rugby! I love Rugby so much. I get obsessed with everything Rugby I own. Like those carpenter pants I was wearing so much this winter. 

I'm wearing them with Y-3 pants I got years ago that I wear non-stop. The shoes are Prada fall '06, and were recently given to me by my mom because they're too small for her now. (Her feet are still growing for some reason...I hope this doesn't happen to me) This is such a perfect shoe--all of Prada's shoes from fall '06 were the best.

A look at this season in shoes

I've been browsing style.com's amazing new accessories library and have been pleasantly surprised by next season's shoes. I hate a boring shoe season. Some of them are really--I mean REALLY out there. Like the Jen Kao acid marble turbo alien stompers above.  Those are special. I wouldn't wear all of the shoes in these collages, but you can count me in on the Jen Kao's, the Pierre Hardy, the blue Thakoons, the Nicholas Kirkwoods, the YSLs, the Phillip Lims, and the Jean-Michel Cazabat biker boots.

This is a vintage Jean Paul Gaultier sweater I got at Big Bertha's in Austin a long time ago--so fun!

How cute are these 90's Alexander McQueens!! I got them at a resale store. Such a great shape. I'm really feeling more 90's shoes lately.


I can't help posting a few pictures of Kim--everything she does is so minature and cute. She is the funniest dog. Kim's thing is that when she wants attention she does this very gruff nasally three-stop grunt. It's remarkably loud. Does anyone else's chihuahua do this? It's too funny!

Kim is very comfortable in the car--she goes everywhere with us.

I know it's my 500 billionth time talking about these shoes but I can't help myself! They're too good! I found these great behind the scenes pictures at Miu Miu's website. 

Sigh....too dreamy.

Miu Miu also had an insanely cute sparkly shoe bootie on the runway, and I was happy to see that style.com had posted some great up close shots of these. 



Oh my god I can't look away from this shoe--it's too perfect.

My mom and I found this amazing leather jacket from the bicentennial at Cheap Thrills Vintage in Tulsa. Amazing score and a fun piece of history. Worn with Hysteric Glamour jeans I got in Tokyo a few years ago and some Balmain boots that seem to no longer fit my mom...fine by me ;)

I got my hair done by a genius colorist on Tuesday--it's exactly as red as I like it to be now!

I am so excited to unveil Sea of Shoes's new look! Thank you to Christina Rinaldi and Stylecaster's tech team for making this happen. I am overjoyed, is this an improvement or what? My ugly rinky-dink DIY blog design served me well for four years, but I am more than happy to say goodbye to it!

I've still got some kinks to work out--yikes, look at the messy state my categories are in. In any case,  I hope you like the new look as much as I do!
