It may not come as a surprise to any of you, but I have a “fashionation” with footwear(Coining that term,bitches). When I’ve had a long week(not literally, the exact same amount of time elapses in every week), I find comfort in knowing that my pride and joys are still lined up by color next to my wall. Footwear to me is so important because your shoes are what you spend your life in, whether your transporting, shopping, sitting in a lecture hall, or going on a bff-vacay(can you imagine being on a public bus without shoes on? Yeah, bet you appreciate those puppies now, don’t cha!) That being said, it has felt like a looooong week for me, and what better way to end it than with a spotlight on my very fav article of body wear?
FOR NIGHTS YOU PROBABLY WON’T REMEMBER:
By now, you probably get that my heart belongs to Alexander McQueen, and I hold a sinful lust especially for his footwear. These beautiful gold-encrusted nature inspired boots are my dream wear for those wicked friday nights, paired with a black body con, black vintage fur stole, and gold blingin-ringins on your finger bones. Perf.
P.S, I don’t condone substances that result in memory loss, but college students will be college students!
FOR THE NIGHTS AND DAYS YOU DONT WANT TO REMEMBER:
Well all have them, the nights you spend slaving away over your lecture hall notes, trying to remember what your professor said about the temporal lobe and the limbic systems; the days where all you managed to fit in was one cup of coffee and about 12 hours of studying.In a perfect world, our metatarsal joints would be able to handle sky-high platforms 24/7 365 through all of our mundane tasks we hate to do,but much to my dismay, this is not the case for most normal humanoids.Fortunately for us, Balenciaga has designs like these that allow us to still look fly without attaining lumbar spine abnormalities.I would pair these with black faux leather leggings and a chunky knit sweater with a cozy cowl neck. LECTUREHALLGLAMMED.
FOR THE NIGHTS WITH YOUR MAN, IF YOU ARE SO FORTUNATE TO ACTUALLY HAVE ONE:
Dear readers: If you have not read my first blog post, I would like to re-iterate my disclaimer- Taking any fashion advice from me will most likely result in a bedroom full of shoes, and zero homosapiens of the male gender. Spending habits and closets like mine=men repelling. Fortunately for me, I have found a man who is keen to turn a blind eye to such faults( I call them “desirable traits”, now a days its a barbarity that Glam is a rarity), and I wish you all such luck. ANYWHORE, If you have been so lucky, I would recommend you wear these beautiful Brian Atwood platforms out for dinner dates and the like(If your lucky enough to be taken out into the public).But seriously,LOOK AT THOSE JEWEL ENCRUSTED HEELS!
FOR WHEN YOU HAVE A YOUNG-LIFE CRISIS AND QUIT YOUR JOB TO GO TO BURNING MAN:
Sugar-babes, the day has come. DKNY has officially coined granola-glam(I have such a guilty-love for birkenstocks) with a wooden wedge and utility-embellishing. NOW SET YOUR SPIRIT FREE YOU LITTLE FASHION FREAK, AND ROLL IN THE MUD, RIDE YOUR BIKE TOPLESS, AND DANCE ELECTRO TILL YOUR GLITTERY BOD CAN’T BEAR TO STAND!
FOR WHEN YOU INHERIT YOUR GREAT AUNT’S COTTAGE IN THE PRARIE:
These gorg Dolce and Gabbana wedges are reminscent of sweet springs, lemonade, and floaty summer dresses, everything that I love. Floral WIN.
But now my sweets, I would like to bring attention to the new banner picture. That my friends, is the new platform by Christian Dior. It has color, flare, fire, oh my! But mostly it’s the resemblance to the fiery creatures in my favorite movie of all time, The Labyrinth,that warms my heart and sends that shudder down my spine(I should seriously dedicate a post to the outfits in that movie).
Thanks for reading babes, let me know which pair is your fave-sies!( I personally LOVE the Dior, Gabbana, and McQueen).
Till next time,
