Shoe Challenge:Day 4-Grandma’s Birthday

Today marks the fourth day of the ‘shoe challenge’. Today was also the celebration of my grandma’s birthday-for the occaision I donned my marbled Dries van Noten slip dress with the Dries van Noten patent sneaker pumps-also, I’ve been meaning to do post a picture of this amazing belt I got on eBay

and here is a close up shot of the belt-you can’t tell in the picture but their eyes are rhinestones.

Mom decided to wear her Burberry for the get-together-knowing how much grandma likes them. She was busy today preparing a delicious feast. She also wears a Y-3 skirt and no-name shirt.

This is my mom’s special apron she’s had for over 25 years-it was a gift when she walked for the Atsuki Onishi show during fashion week in Tokyo. It was an Alice and Wonderland themed show-and she treasures it to this day.

I have to include a shot of the zipper detail on the back of these shoes-a cute tough detail.


Tomorrow is the last day! Will update tomorrow :)

    Gosh, your mom is such a Stepford Wife here (and I mean that in the best possible way). Look at that: apron, cooking, then bam–the shoes are such a killer. I always loved studded shoes but somehow they just don’t fit my personality… Oh well! I blogged about your blog! =D

    I’m a bit more infatuated with that amazing elephant belt than the shoes. Your mother has a killer pair of shoes, they look so intimidating so close up!
