SEE LARK! | Easy DIY Glitter Booties

I love booties and I love sparkly things…so why not combine the two? I have drooled over ultra glittery shoes in the past and even owned a pair, but have come to find the reality of wearing them posing a couple of problems.  First of all, the glitter sheds.  Like pixie dust, you could re-trace my footsteps and not to mention it can be a b&#ch to clean up.  Secondly, a lot of the styles are super expensive so can sparkly lust really justify the cost?  Fortunately, I found a way to satisfy the craving by creating a subtle glittery boot with this very simple DIY.

Office wear can get a little boring, so how can you spice it up yet still be work appropriate?  The key is looking for interesting cuts while still keeping the silhouette simple or wearing traditional pieces in an unconventional color.  Since I am a lover of all things gray and black, I chose the former.  Continue reading “Business Casual”

The Unapologetic Splurge List

SEE LARK! | The Unapologetic Splurge List

Often times wish lists are compiled of items that we would like to purchase or would like for others to buy for us on special occasions. I thought I would do a play on the wish list and curate items that are breathtaking and unequivocally extravagant. Now, I am not advocating we break the bank. The intent to allow oneself to dream and to not let the price tag constrain the imagination, hence the Unapologetic Splurge List.

Birthday Suit

Turning one year older used to be an exciting event, but now that I am closer to 40 than I am 30 (writing that kind of makes me cringe), I am no hurry to round up any numbers. Mid-30s isn’t old (nor is 40), it’s just the realization of how much life has occurred already – graduations, wedding, new jobs, moves, the list goes on – that has me reflecting on age.   Continue reading “Birthday Suit”

Fall means saying goodbye to sandals and “Hello boots!” Oh, how I love boot season and the range of styles offered each year! My current obsession is the ankle bootie, specifically ones with a substantial heel and a “chunkier” form.  When worn with a dress or skirt, the proportion of the ankle bootie to the legs makes your limbs look leaner. How awesome is that?! Continue reading “High Low Ankle Bootie”

When I first saw this picture of Christine Centenera in these shoes, I about died. It’s minimal and three-dimensional with lovely suede embellishments. After some Internet sleuthing, I figured out these are a gorgeous pair of Alaïa heels…a gorgeous and expensive pair of Alaïa heels…a gorgeous, expensive, and sold-out pair of Alaïa heels. Hence, another reason to DIY. Continue reading “Easy DIY: Pom Pom Heels”

If I take a step back and observe J. Crew’s history, it has really come a long way since the store I remember from my childhood.  With Jenna Lyons as creative director, J. Crew has really transformed from basics into something that is worthy of runway fanfare.  Case in point, J. Crew’s shoe collection. Continue reading “Get “Etta” My Dreams and Into My Closet”
