Let’s Slip Into Something A Little More Comfortable

Ballet flats? So five years ago. Get with the times, people. They pinch the back of your feet, you feel like you’re walking barefoot on the sidewalk, and let’s face it- some people were just NOT made out to look like ballet dancers (though for the record, if you do go that route, ballet flats from Lacoste are your best bet- they’re like walking on clouds, no joke).

Anyway, back to the future  present, and the present is the LOAFER. I know what you’re thinking, the loafer has been around since the dawn of time, but you ain’t never seen a loafer like this one. Introducing the loafer, Jeffrey Campbell style.

Can you say Sparkling and Chic??? These come in an array of colors- INCLUDING TURQUOISEEEE- but including both black and white for those of you who like to keep your feet a little more modest (I do not fall into that category). Since these loafers are Jeffrey Campbell, you can be sure they are comfortable, as are all of their shoes. Seriously, I have a pair with 5 inch heels and two inch platforms that I could run a race in, if I were the type to run races… or run.

So go out, and get your foot shine on. Your tootsies will apprecitate it.


A Room of a Pink Color

I moved into my new apartment just under one month ago but am not even close to having everthing completely where I want it. Last night, I decided to rearrange the furniture in my bedroom and attempted to move it all by myself- not a good idea. Luckily, my strong roommate helped me, and one broken dresser and one broken toe (not mine) later, my bedroom furniture is rearranged in a much better way.

My room is decorated in different shades of pinks, tan and black. It is incredibly girly and I love it. When it is completely finished, I will post pictures of everything. Currently, though, I only have two wall hangings hung: one is a chandelier-shaped mirror and a piece that states one of my favorite quotes. I still need to hang many more decorations including lots and lots of pictures of family and friends. I have my work cut out for me, but I think I can do it. For now, I will share the quote that is hanging on my wall, enjoy!

Love this quote

Street Smarts

One of the things I love most about shopping in SOHO is all the street vendors selling such a variety of goods- jewelry, sunglasses, artwork and I’ve even seen a man selling finger puppets. Before I moved to New York, I would never have thought to buy something off the street other than at a Farmer’s Market- in Ohio, its just something you do not do. Even when I first moved to New York I was wary. It wasn’t until I was walking through SOHO with a born and raised New Yorker that I realized, its just what people do here. From then on, I have been on the lookout for great street finds. This weekend, I had a great one. While walking along the street on Sunday, my friend and I spotted a table full of sunglasses. I found a fabulous pair of black and pink glasses and my exact quote was “these sunglasses couldn’t be more me if they tried”. Now they are mine and for only $10! What a steal.
