Mom Will Love This

So, today, I fell in love. With Sam Edelman's Lorissa Peep-toe pump.

Call them outlandish. Call them impractical. Call them dangerous even, or, as my mother prefers, "inappropriate". But I prefer to call them perfection, and as it may be, I composed this poem in their honor and sent it to my mother.

Roses can be Red,
And Violets can be Blue.
I saw a piece of Heaven,
That made me think of you.
Though fierce on the exterior,
With peppered spikes like drops of dew,
I found their first impression to be slightly misconstrued.
Because within their heart
The shoes embodied Strength Within.
A girly heel with metal spikes singing sweet as violin.
The contrast can't be copied,
A composition like no other.
Such perfection mirrored only in
My dear sweet darling mother.

And she didn't buy it. So, unfortunately, I didn't buy them.
Well. Not today, anyway..

Ten Top Ads, Sept 2010

The Vogue SEPTEMBER ISSUE has arrived, a fact of which I'm quite confident you're all aware. I mean, surely you awoke to blasting horns and fanfare just as I did?

Anyway, oh so much couture to discuss. But! The first post in relation to this almighty issue is strictly in dedication of my favorite ads. After all, how exactly can you fill up 726 pages of pure bliss without a little bit of color advertisement?


-Talbots. Starring a stunning Linda Evangelista.


Isabel Toldeo
for Payless. (I have to admit I don't
truly fancy the real-life shoe, but what a lovely illustration!)


... and step away from the sneakers. Piperlime 
keeps it classy, everyone.

"Form strategic partnerships."

- Banana Republic

         That is so freakin' adorable.

Giuseppe Zanotti, with Anja Rubik. Grease flashbacks, anyone?

Just as provocative as ever, Marc Jacobs himself poses in ads for his new men's fragrance BANG.

Twirl by Kate Spade. Available at Nordstrom. Where I am now currently en route to.

Nicholas Kirkwood, ad by Nordstrom.

Alexa Chung for Madewell.

Carolina Herrera

& Don't fret, because there's more to come on the actual writing within Vogue, from the Military Camo Trend to the 'Turban Renewal'.
