1.The highly anticipated spring 09 ANN DEMEULEMEESTER lace-up sandal boots are finally here, at long last. Better pictures to come soon.
2. My rhinestone necklace broke.
3. Got the lace top I'm wearing in the above pictures at F21 today…the bell sleeves totally killed me.
4. As you can tell our house is in the process of a few small changes. Sigh. There goes my nice picture location! Better blogs to come soon-it's been a busy weekend.

    I’m quite excited to see you wear these! Any chance you or Judy will be getting the white version with the exposed heel, as well?

  3. That lace top is just beautiful…can’t even tell it comes from Forever 21. Also, I can’t wait to see you wear those sandals/lace-up boots.

  4. Those shoes are a beauty! Isn’t it so sad when things break? I absolutely get sad when I lose parts of a necklace because of a weak chain. :(

    I’m still lusting over the triple lace knee high boots. Ann’s designs never fail to impress.
    Congrats on getting those!! I’m sure you’ll enjoy them. ;)
    As for the necklace, I really feel for you. I’m terrible with jewelry, a complete squander. My cartier love chain necklace tore apart a number of 5 times! I’ve lost 2 rings in a cab, on different occasions, both of which belonging to my grandmother and handed over to me. I’ve left bracelets in powder rooms in London and not even realize until my next visit when the cleaning lady mentions it and gives them back to me. I’ll stop at that! =)
    I’m sure you can have it repaired though, right?

    olya–I’m not jane, just a reader, but these sandal boots run true to size. I am a 38 (ie us 8) in alaia, chloe, prada, etc, and I have these in a 38 as well. I got mine from saks. I have also seen them on antonioli.eu and joan shepp. I believe you could get them from browns if you telephoned–they are not on browns website but I have seen them in browns’ ads.

    It’s really hard to get rhinestone jewelry repaired since it is usually not made with gold or silver (as in, normal jewelry stores will not do the work for you…at least the 6 or so stores I have asked). Your best bet is to make friends with a local artisan jeweler and see what they can do. Your other option is to just hand the piece over to someone who remakes vintage pieces and see what they do with it (which is really cool, but depending on how bad the break is, I’d go with the former option).

    I’m just curious… how do you afford all these expensive shoes? I’m 24, work two jobs and still can’t afford to spend even $400 on shoes, let alone $700+. Do you find deals? Can you tell your readers like me how to do so? I think you have impeccable shoe taste.
