Gotta Hand it To Ya...

Similarly, I like a good bad ass banging glove...and I tend to be a little more adventurous with my gloves. Yellow, moto, studs, trompe l'oeil...whatever.

Here are my to die fors...

but we need all kinds of gloves to satisfy all ten of our little fingers fantasies!

Trap or Die

I live in Michigan...and baby its cold outside.
I love a good hat...#1 because the cold dries out my hair, and that is never good, and #2 because I like a proper looking chapeau to keep the cold out.
For whatever reason, I am obsessed with fur trapper hats, ala:

but in general I just like a good hat. Here are some cold weather worthy hats if you live in the Anartic...or just feel like you do!

Shoe Stoppers: BiBi is Her Name

Christian Louboutin Bibi Pumps...the thicker heel, the platform, that rich chocolate brown suede...
I dont think I love the 5 inches, but I wouldnt necessarily be doing a marathon in these shoes...

Paddy Power!

I JUST GOT IT...well, its on its way:

Yes, THE bag, my personal favorite IT bag of all times...
Now, this isn't a blog about my purchases, bc I personally don't want a record of all the money I spend...but instead this is about the POWER of the PURCHASE!
When you finally get something you have been wanting for ages, and you get it DISCOUNT...that's what I makes the power behind the purchase so much greater.
Would you believe I purchased this sweet thing for less than 60% of its normal price.
Someone recently asked me why I shop online so much...and the reason is clear...its cheaper. I can go in store, see what I like, try it on if necessary, then find it online for sometimes half the price I would pay in store. Often its through the use of coupon codes...FREESHIP, SHIPONUS, whatever...
Often its on a sample sale site,,,
Your dollar is powerful, so make sure you get the most out of it!
My motto in life is "Dance Like No One is Watching"
My motto in shopping is "Never Pay Retail"
Now...I'm off to find some fabulous boots to compliment my fabulous Paddy!

Love Sinks

                                                  The Canals of Venice, Italy

I am in love with this picture...
It reminds me of kisses, croissants (I know its not Paris, but that is what it reminds me of okay!),
Moscato d'Asti, Christian Louboutin Roland heels, John Coltrane and Miles Davis, sequins, thick knitted sweaters, cropped pants, polka dot strapless one piece swimsuits, wild and curly hair, Lanvin flats, and Toblerone.  A mish mash of some of my favorite things...
