THE DEATH OF SUMMER/zara open ankle boot court shoe


Jerrmaner and I are headed in a new direction with the blogs.  As summer dies, so does our old style of blogging.  Stay tuned for fewer posts as we embrace the idea of less as being so much more.

SOMETHING IN THE AIR/gucci loafers

Fall is already in the air.  You can feel it in the mornings and at night.  I started to get a little anxious and pulled out some of my fall jackets.  

I also found this denim skirt that I forgot I had.  I think I bought it in Moscow several years ago and yes, this is the first time I am ever wearing it.  I am so bad about wearing the same things over and over again that most of my clothes (including this skirt) get neglected.

STAIRWAY/giuseppe zanotti patent leather heels

Took a few photos while sitting in my stairway today.   Anything goes on these walls...Picasso, Renoir, Degas, editorial shots and random wedding shots...yes, anything goes in this stairway.  

These are old shoes, but I still love them so much.  They are classic beauties and they will never go out of style.

THE LONG AND SHORT OF IT/brian atwood neiman marcus + target beaded round sunglasses

We took these pics weeks ago and I had no intention of posting them.  However, after revisiting these pictures, they kind of started to grow on me.

I am doing what I do best in these pictures.  I am turning a long skirt into a mini dress...something I do quite often.  I just prefer myself in minis and that is mainly because I am so short.  I have to say that this Ashley O'Rourke skirt has been a dress more often than a skirt, but I still consider it to be one of my best buys of all time.

BLACK SOCK REVIVAL/prada black snakeskin bow platform sandals

I borrowed these little footies for my recent trip to Portland.  They seemed like a good idea to wear with my sneakers to prevent blisters, but they didn't work out as well as I thought they would.  They would actually slip off my foot within a few steps...something about the sneaker/footie combination  just didn't work.

I decided to try them out in another way before giving up on footies forever.  This time with the thought of the Prada S/S 2009 runway show in mind.  Remember that show?  The models wore little footies with their sandals and it looked divine.  I actually have a pair of those runway sandals and I had been meaning to try the footie + sandal combo for a while now.  

 The result?  I love it!  It gives my sandals a completely different look.  Now I just wonder if these footies can breathe new life into some of my other sandals.  Stay tuned...
