true blue and candy shoes


Sometimes I like things painfully ladylike and elegant, and today was one of those days. It took me all of my strength to refrain from donning a pair of sweet gloves and some charming lip color, yet I substituted a pair of darling candy kitten heels for all of that instead. This Eugenia Kim pair has been with me for many years, yet I remember the purchase as if it were yesterday: I saw them from afar at the Saks outlet, hunted down my size, noticed the sale sign above the rack, pondered my options for a millisecond and then carried them to the cashier. I often don’t favor kitten heels – but I surely love these!



Besides being fond of quirky footwear, I adore designer plus store collaborations like Target’s Go International (from where this dress arose). I know I am not alone in thinking that it is about time that designers finally make clothing, shoes and accessories affordable for the everyday gal. However I am disappointed that there has been a sudden absence in designer showcases at Target. Come on lets get on with it and show me some Marc, Miu Miu, ChloĆ©…
