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!

    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!

    Now you do have us wondering though, how stylish is your Boyf!

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.
