Bunny Flats

  
There is always something about a quirky novelty shoe that brightens up my day. These bunny flats by Kate Spade have been on high rotation since nabbing them this past Fall. I admit, at first although I loved them I was unsure exactly how much I’d wear them; but sure enough, I treat them as a neutral flat with a cotton tail and they make their appearance every so often. 

These are comfy to boot with soft brushed suede and a fuzzy pom pom tail. Perhaps even cuter than the tail- the spade nose, the tiniest gold accent. The only unfortunate thing about these is that they are so light I can only wear them when it is completely dry outside, or indoors only. I know it is only January, but I can’t wait for spring to some so these can accompany me as I hop all around town. 

Anyway, are you a novelty shoe fanatic or would you rather keep it classic and cool? Let me know in the comments below. Happy weekend! 

Slightly Obsessed

Alright, here it is. I was browsing the after Christmas sales online seeing what trouble I could get into. And I found these. And I can’t stop thinking about them. And it is silly because open-toe booties where I live is a short lived season. But I am really thinking that I should make them happen anyway.

When I was in Vegas a couple years ago I remember eyeing a pair of open toe boots that took forever to get out of my head. I walked into a Herve Leger boutique somewhere round the Venetian shops and in that moment they were everything. These remind me so much of them, that kinda badass-beautiful that open toe boots present upon themselves. Dear Mr. Blahnik, you’ve done it to me again! Am I nostalgic? Crazy? Smitten? Determined.

Happy Sunday to you all- it is back to the grindstone for me tomorrow. Cross your fingers I survive.

Happy 2017! 

Happy 2017 to all my readers! It has been a little slow going here with the end of holidays- I managed to get a little run down so I’m trying to take it easy until I get back to work and am launched back into sheer chaos. There is a LOT to look forward to in 2017 so hopefully I’ll be able to share with you as much as possible. 

I wasn’t sure what I wanted to post first this year but what better way to kick off the new year with one of my latest (and favourite) designs. 

  
I designed these back in October and they arrived somewhere near mid November. Do I even need to say that they have been in high rotation since? These made appearances at numerous Christmas parties, concerts and even joined me for super casual work days. If you haven’t figured by now, I love anything glitzy with sparkle. I mentioned years ago that I potentially might be part magpie. That still remains. There is absolutely no inspiration to this design other than the fact that one morning I woke up with a huge craving for bronze glitter. So, over breakfast, I sat down and simple made it happen. With subtle piping detail. Simple as that. But what do you think? They are easily one of my favourite and most comfy pairs I’ve designed. I know I’ll be reaching for them again and again. 

Hope everyone’s 2017 has started out in style. All the best to you and yours in this new year!
