Green- APC Flats

I am obsessed with things that go on my feet lately. And it doesn’t just stop at shoes–I’ve been eyeing socks and toe rings too. Fine, maybe not the toe rings although I’m predicting a comeback in Fall 2012.

And while I dream pennilessly of purchases that I can’t afford to make, I copy and paste my fantasies onto blog pages. These are wet dreams, sloppily drenched in drool and material-lust, and sadly, so far from being reality.

And with these pastel mint APC flats lurking, I should definitely treat myself to a one night “stand”. Har har har.

Can’t go wrong with brown canvas oxfords.

But there are other oxfords out there, already blogged by my better half.

Cool your heels, missy
 

These LD Tuttle heels via Creatures of Comfort remind me that it’s time to swap in my beat up black high-top Chucks for something a little bit more raunchy, but not porn-raunchy, more like in an “I mean business”-kind of way. The exposed toe, heel, and achilles tendon are also symbolic: It’s revealing of a woman’s duality; the hard-ass-bitch who is secretly fragile and sensitive. Yep. That’s me. And every girl I know.

Catherine Deneuve

I enjoy French films not because I enjoy the directing or acting involved but because I like watching my personal style icons–these chic, classy, and cool French actresses–saunter into scenes,taking over with their sensuality. Anna Karina and Catherine Deneuve are two of my favorites.

The first time you spend the night at a new beau’s place, you are allowed to be unprepared. After all, that drink you were sipping on all night turned out to be four or five. The second time though, it’s crucial that you’re equipped. The walk of shame is not ok two times in a row. Neither is brushing your teeth with your fingers.

Your trip is incomplete without the perfect overnight bag. On top of being a responsible cuddler/bootie call/girlfriend-in-the-making, you need to make a statement. What better statement than with a fashionable carryall filled with overnight essentials like your toiletries (make-up remover = a must. Don’t ever sacrifice your skin for any man/woman), fresh pair of underthings, phone charger, and a little bottle of gin (in case he/she is out). Also, might be good to have a pair of shoes that doesn’t scream “catwalk” or “hooker”.

My pick is this fantastic Mulberry number. I was put onto GQ UK’s weekend bag countdown and found this in the mix. Yea, it’s virtually going to break the bank, but its still fun to look at. In NOIR of course.

Hedi Slimane’s Diary is one of my favorite things to look at when I’m in need of a visual-gasm, which is often. When I think of black, I think of the Hedi Slimane aesthetic, and subsequently his inspiring photo journal.
