If These Heels Could Talk

I bought these lace up heeled booties from Asos back in the summer (mentioned here) in black and tan. I haven't pulled them out of the box at all until today. They're cute and comfortable! I keep seeing this style everywhere for Fall, so I can't wait to mix and match them with some cute Fall outfits in the next few months... until the peep toe is too much for the chilly NJ weather. I'm thinking slinky LBD and motorcycle jacket next time I wear them, what do you think?

Do you like the blazer? A fabulous find for $11.80 at Bebe.

Street Style - Kim K

If you know me, you know I am a huge fan of the sisters Kardashian, especially Kim. Back before Kim was the socialite/actress/celebutante/model she is now, with an entourage of hair and make up assistants and stylists, she was a stylist/personal shopper herself. (Clients included Brandy, Lindsay Lohan, and childhood friend Paris Hilton.)

I love seeing what kind of outfit Kim wears in her day to day (unstyled) life. Sure, she always looks gorgeous on the red carpet, photo shoots, and public appearances, but wouldn't we all with the right "people?" What it really comes down to is street style.

Key piece to dress up a black tee and distressed jeans? A cropped, fitted blazer.

A printed skirt pulls together a white tank and neutral accessories.

Kim's blue leather jacket adds the perfect pop of color to keep the basic black/white outfit from becoming too (yawn) boring.

How to keep a masculine shirt-dress feminine? The right color choice to compliment hair and skin tone along with a waist cinching belt to show off curves.

The perfect way to wear horizontal stripes? With a simple skirt, necklace and pumps.

Even if you are not a fan of Kim, you can understand that looking chic is super simple. And you don't have to spend a fortune. If you have the basics in your closet all you need are some accessories (a fun pair of shoes, handbag, chunky necklace, a scarf) to complete the look. And my favorite piece of advice - a good pair of sunglasses definitely go a long way!

I made my September issue last until Monday. I only read a few pages a night.. yea I'm weird like that. Its all marked up, dog eared, and half the pages are pulled or falling out by now. Fashion is a battlefield. I'm wearing my Valentino sunglasses in this picture. I LOVELOVE them!!

Anyway... I also have 2 pieces I need to share with you ASAP! One from DVF and the other from Herve Leger. Hope to do that sometime this week or in the next few weeks.

Very Truly Yours, Always

I uncovered these GEMS tucked away in my shoe closet. Aren't they fun? I have been doing a little packing up... (dis) organizing, navigating, collecting, weeding out through things. Then putting it all back where it was before. Fall is my favorite season but it really came too quickly this year.

My meatball! And his megaphone... GO TEAM!!
