gotta’ gotta’ love her!

Jane from Sea of Shoes never ceases to be an inspiration….!!

Mad as a hat… here she goes:

Wearing the most amazing vintage asymmetrical Bill Blass jacket, vintage Elvis tank top given to me by the sweet ladies from Fruition in Las Vegas, vintage belt, Ralph Lauren bandana, vintage clutch from Vintage Martini, beetle and octopus necklaces from our own jewelry line, Current & Elliot jeans, and my beloved new Yves Saint Laurent platforms.

I am a huge, huge Adolfo fan but ironically I do not own any Adolfo hats (Adolfo began as a milliner). My mom was at Vintage Martini with our partner in crime Tina (the Bag Snob) and called me wondering if I’d be interested in a raccoon hat by Adolfo. In my mind’s eye it wasn’t quite as…intense. But you know what they say here in Texas, go big or go home.

In New York I saw fur hats in this style that were much larger and more dramatic. I couldn’t help staring at them like they were big furry fungal growths on their owners heads but it didn’t seem to phase New Yorkers.

This hat will keep me warm in the weeks to come…it hasn’t gotten above freezing all week here in DFW.

and more MAAADNESS…:

to put them on…they are exquisite! Thank you so much Natalie and Ferdinand!

thanks for making my day in style today… now I can go sleep peacefully!

…it takes one strong item to make a statement..

..a great look is not about “piling it on” but rather about choosing your pieces carefully.. Less is definitely more, but that does not mean you have yo go all “minimalist”.. A great pair of boots/shoes, a statement jacket, a bold piece of jewelry is all you need…
I love this look…almost plain..but then those boots just change everything..tease and say something… then leave them…breathless 😉

beautiful nude…the scarf makes the statement..

Michel Lamy -Rick Owen’s wife says it loud.. I love..


I’m in love with bling/statement sneakers at the moment! Haven’t found what I want yet… but it’s only a matter of time!!

…statement pieces that I love…and want..

Off to ITALY for more buying…

new stuff will be in store soon! In the meantime enjoy our 70% off sale! …some ask why 70% sale…is something wrong? No, nothing it wrong… I know in SA we are not used to real sales… but to me at the end of the season 70% IS A SALE.. Enjoy!

I’m soo glad its super hip again… animal print…and leopard in particular..not that its ever really been “out” could it!!??

..this one actually looks a lot like the Gryphon NY Leopard coat we’ll be getting in July!!…maybe it is..

and this? no leopard…but I love the look!

I like the whole look…but I adore the shoes!!

Mad about Balenciaga!

Filed under: designers, Hot shoes — Tags: , , — alexandradellago @ 4:17 pm

Balenciaga has had such an amazing come-back! I’ve loved their last two collections more than I’ve ever loved anything by Balenciaga… their shoes, along with Proenza Schouler’s are my favorite collections by far… and their jackets and pants are just pure madness!

…just the shoes can make a totally boring and dull outfit into something outlandish and exotic!! I can’t stop drooling!! Gonna go be really really nice to my dear husband so that maybe…he’ll understand that I HAVE to have a pair of these boots!!
