GUCCI PLATFORMS SUMMER 09

Hey guys, I've been taking a little time off from blogging while my boyfriend is in town…but I'll be updating more soon! Thanks for reading.

Mom on the left, me on the right…

My mom and I always end up getting the same shoes! So nerdy. But I guess you like what you like… When I saw these shoes at the Neiman Marcus sale I couldn't help myself…I liked the bloated shape of the platform. Don't these shoes look pregnant? Something about the shape reminded me of african fertility art.

Not to mention the bronze is so pretty with the blond wood platform.

 

 

Not to mention they are comfy enough to wear around the house, if you are so inclined…and you know I am. Mom and I both wore our Gucci's to work on an exciting upcoming project of ours!

Worn with Hanes tank, vintage cameo necklace, brocade trousers from Fur Fur, and a scarf purchased in Morocco.

 

Mom wore hers with a recently found herringbone skirt…..I have to borrow this skirt from her sometime!

Denise really knows how to work the camera…I was cracking up when she decided to make a guest appearance in this picture.

More coming soon!

    That is a photogenic dog, indeed.
    Not super fond of the shoes, for some reason they remind me of the Wizard of Oz. But hey, to each their own. Love the scarf you’re wearing.
    Have fun with your boyfriend this week!

  2. Mode Junkie says:

  17. Mel says:

    Those shoes are beautiful, and the colors of your outfit are really gorgeous!

  18. Kati says:

    Whoa, I just bought those same shoes yesterday at Nordstrom! Hella good deal for Guccis (and they are so comfortable). Great minds think alike!

  19. Ophelia says:

    I seriously just did a little dance when I saw that you had updated! I’m living vicariously through you so when the updates are slow my life always gets just a tad more boring. Sad, I know! Anyway, the shoes (and you for that matter) are gorgeous! I would love to see a picture of your boyfriend if he’s not too shy.

  20. Sylvia says:

    I love seeing how you and your mom both played around with the shoes! It’s cool seeing each of your different takes on how to wear them. I don’t know if you’ve answered this before…but are you guys the same shoe size? That, I’m sure, would come in handy!

  21. Julia says:

    amazing shoes =)
    xoxo

  22. linda says:

    perfect photos, perfect looks, perfect shoes.
    I must have it :DD

  23. Pearl says:

    These are such gorg shoes, I love the metalic and wood combo! Really loving all the autumnal tones, which look great especially with yours and Judy’s darker locks! I love the contrast with the grey in Judy’s outfit, and the gold tones in yours, the brocade pants are stuning.
    Now you do have us wondering though, how stylish is your Boyf!
    Have a great weekend Jane,

    Yay we are shoe twins (triplets?) ! I bought mine because I was trying to hunt down the Gucci Imans with no luck, but they are probably far more comfortable anyways. :)

  25. Catherine says:

    Those are so so beautiful!!

  41. Now that you mentioned the man in your life… we all getting curious, I guess! Show him, please! I was always wondering what kind of spouse you would have

  42. Erin says:

    i love those shoes! I think they look really good the way your mom wore them with the socks.
    Denise is so cute!

  43. I love the lip colour you are wearing! And the shoes, but I always, always love the shoes.

  44. Tori says:

    Honestly, at first glance I thought they were different shoes because you both rock them so differently. I love that your blog shows the versatility of a pair of shoes or a single piece of clothing. It’s fantastic, especially in these financial times.

  45. omg!
    i love those platforms, jane!
    i always adore your style and your mom!

    Love the shoes. Although it didn’t look Gucci to me at all. Still I think you always manage to pick the most extraordinary shoes.
    Also, I love your makeup esp the winged eyeliner tips!

  47. amber says:

    good heavens!! those shoes are amazing. And, as always, I am still very much in love with those pants. What an amazing find.

  50. azumi says:

    How’s your sister?

  51. the first time I saw those shoes I didn’t like them, but they’ve been growing on me ever since. I especially like your comment about the fertility art! that’s exactly what they reminded me of.
    I wish I could like those brocade pants, but my grandma has this horrible squat little overstuffed chair in a fabric just like that, that I really don’t like. haha.

  52. You always wear the BEST jewelry.And your scarf is AWE-worthy!!!!

  53. YekkY says:

    Both of you exudes fun and Gorgeous style! I even thought you were the one wearing the socks. Until I saw this in your Mom’s blog. Funny! LOVELOVELOVE

  54. tinmags says:

    i really love your shoe collection as well as your mom’s… both of you really have the eye for unique shoe styles… btw, gucci matches the brocade from fur fur…nice:)

  55. marvoi says:

    the curve in the front is the best part i think but ur “pregnant” comment is right, lol

  56. Catherine says:

    Denise seems like she has the best personality EVER. What an adorable puppy.
    Love the way your mom’s socks look with those shoes!

  57. Becca says:

    those shoes are beautiful, and they look lovely with the brocade pants.

  58. mimi says:

    your skin is flawless! what’s your secret (besides youth!)? you totally need to do a beauty post on sea of shoes.
    i must admit im not too much a fan of the shoes.. they do look a little bloated! i’d probably break my neck attempting to walk in them!

  59. Penny says:

    I had no idea you had a boyfriend! I mean of course you do, you’re gorgeous! But you should include him in a post!

  60. Heini says:

    They´re beautiful!

  61. Aurora says:

    wohoo, -post a picture of your boyfrind!!

  62. Ellen Bailey says:

    The vintage necklace you wore is stunning. Vintage jewelry and those just vintage looking brings out elegance in whoever wears it. There are a lot of antique styled fashion jewelry at http://eternalsparkles.com. They also have cheap rings, brooches and pearl jewelry if you opt for more classic jewelry.

  63. Cecilia says:

    Yes, please, please do a beauty-post on how you take care of your skin and what products you use for your eye makeup.

  64. Stephanie says:

    Beautiful, beautiful outfit! Am crazy jealous of your wardrobe :) Have fun with your boyfriend, and I can’t wait to see what project you’re working on.
    Cheers,
    Steph

  82. Neenaj says:

    Jane,
    These shoes are carbon copies of the shoes we used to wear for school, under our maxi dresses, in the late seventies!!!! Ours were blue and green, though. Our school had stopped us wearing short skirts so we rebelled by wearing maxi skirts with platforms underneath………
    Yours from Sherwood Forest, England, reminiscing about the millions of ways we got around our school uniform rules!!!

  83. Anika says:

    I looove these shoes. Beautiful. And especially love how you paired them with shades of gold.
    Am so jealous of the fantastic sales you guys have….arrrgh, when will Australia get to that stage!?!?!

    Gucci makes such wonderful shoes! Yours are amazing. I just ordered my first ever pair of Gucci heels (Orchids from this summers collection) off ebay. They are due to arrive in a couple days and I can not put in words just how excited I am! Will defo be posting about them!
    Also, something I should have commented on ages ago – those Fur Fur brocade trousers are pant perfection! Too bad I can’t find anything similar at a decent price. Maybe I can have some tailored if I find a suitable fabric…?

  102. Hi, you look like a geysha. A Brilliang-Magnific-Elegant geysha ;)

    I love the shoes!!!! The gold is great together with the wooden platform!

  106. gina says:

    I love those shoes! They look great on you and your mother. I like your cameo necklace and pants. I’ve admired pants like those before, but I’ve never quite had the courage to wear anything like them – they’re so noticeable. They look great on you. Wonderful outfit.
