Moschino is one of those shoe-brands that leads me from shoe-crush to shoe-crush. It happened again today with these red-hot, laser-cut pumps.
With their elegant filigree design, these had me at ‘laser-cut’.
I’m not usually one to start even thinking about Christmas until we’ve at least finished cooking the turkey for Thanksgiving, but the shiny red-patent and swirling-filigree design combo has these shooting straight to the top of my Christmas list.
They wouldn’t even have to be wrapped up; they come with their own festive bows.
The ‘Scarlett’ spiked sandals being offered by Sam Edelman immediately remind me of Ruthie Davis’ Spikette styles (and in a looser fashion, some of Louboutin’s & Rodarte’s past offerings). Let’s take a peek.

I could wax on for days about these shoes. Adjectives such as fabulous, elegant, breathtaking, and more come trippingly off my tongue when confronted with this much concentrated shoe perfection. Shoes like these make me want to get married all over again just for the opportunity to wear them at least once.
Well, that’s quite enough of a lapse into hyperbole for the time being. I could go on all day; instead let me distill my mental stew of adjectives into the following statement:
Oh, look! Pretty!

When I first saw these gorgeous black leather quilted boots on the street, my first thought was “Chanel.” But my suspicions were raised when I couldn’t locate, even with my mad secret eyeballing skills, a double CC logo anywhere on the shoes. So I decided to ask the stranger instead. To my surprise, the lady said’ Corso Como at Nordstrom’. So here you are gals, chic and classy Chanel-like boots at a non-Chanel price of $199 at Nordstroms. Plus, with free shipping and free returns, how can you not be tempted to try one on? Enjoy!

UGGs is one of those footwear brands that I have a love / hate relationship with. On one hand, I love how warm, comfy, and soft the shearling lining of their boots are. Yet, for all their functionality, the aesthetics of the boots have left much to be desired, especially since my feet look huge and clunky in them. With the introduction of ‘The UGG Collection’ for fall, UGGs is making leaps and strides in the looks department. Take these UGG Cavalieri boots from the Collection line for example. They have the equestrian looks that remind me of Gucci rider boots but are lined with UGG’s signature lining. I also like that the boot shaft can be removed, which is great if you want a different look or want to go from warm to cool.
Now, there’s a price for beauty. The UGG Collection marks UGGs entry into the high end accessories market. This means the shoes are made in Italy with luxurious materials but it also means the shoes start at $495. The UGG Cavalieri boots are $995 at Zappos, which is priced right up there with Jimmy Choo, Louboutin, and Chanel. Do you think they are worth the price or would you stick to the main, more modestly priced line?
