He wore heels!

I am still a little stunned that Prince is gone.   I was really hoping that it was a cruel hoax. But, he is gone and with him a big chunk of my childhood seems to have died. I came of age to listening to Michael Jackson, Prince and Whitney Houston. I was allowed to have MJ and Whitney posters. Prince not so much. Purple Rain was damn near the equivalent of pornography in my house at the time so Prince was forbidden. But, like any determined kid I found a way to see it and I was mesmerized and instantly became a Prince fan. Prince was much more than music to me. He was this force of nature that transcended pretty much every boundary you can think of. Music, fashion, gender, whatever it was…Prince made up his own rules and we loved him for it.

Wishlist Wednesday – Francesco Russo Braided Patent Leather Sandals

I have Spring on the brain and for several good reasons.  All of last week’s snow has pretty much melted away and the groundhog did not see his shadow.  So I find myself fantasizing about warmer weather and all of the wonderful shoes that it will bring.  If you have read my blog before you know that I am having a not so secret love affair with Francesco Russo and after perusing the SS16 collection it doesn’t look it is going to end anytime soon.  It is simply amazing.  One of my favorites are these black patent leather braided sandals which will look great with basically anything.  I definitely foresee another visit to 8 Rue de Valois in the near future.

Now is the time to shop the Manolo Blahnik sale

shoe-miracle-manolo-blahnik-imageThe Manolo Blahnik semi-annual sale started a few weeks ago but prices were a mere 33% off.  The boutique just slashed prices to 50% off this week. So, today would be a good day to take a long lunch especially if you have had your eye on a pair of shoes or boots and don’t want to wait until February rolls around to snap them up. Details are below. As always, I will send an up when the final markdown occurs.  Until then…happy shopping!

Wishlist Wednesday – Tom Ford Cutout Sandal

Yesterday was so cold that I was basically ready to give up on life.   In fact, I was all set to post a pair of winter boots in anticipation of the blizzard that is being forecast for this weekend. But, then I was scrolling through my Instagram and came across these lovelies.   They basically gave me the will to live another day or at least until I can slip my feet into these shoes. Feast your eyes on these cutout sandals and join me in thanking Mr. Ford for giving me life yet again.
