“I’m dreaming of a BLACK Christmas”

22 Dec

OK – I know it’s not traditional to think black during Christmas, but it’s all I’ve been thinking about.  I know, it’s weird/strange/freaky/unconventional/almost scary.   I’m thinking polar opposite and having fun with it, though some would think I am more in mourning than celebrating.  It’s bizarre to have a desire to try something so out of the ordinary during the holidays for me, however, I love the color black so why not try and make it a staple for Xmas.  I love the traditions that come with  this particular holiday.  I love everything that Christmas is and what it represents but I want to do something out of the “norm” this holiday.  Maybe that’s why I’m going a little goth this Christmas season.  I don’t want to ever be bored or robotic about the holidays so I’m vamping the customary colors up, or should I just say, blacking-out.  I’m not so sure if it will be something I try once or will keep up for holidays to come…eh, I’ll give it a whirl.

Who Needs Weapons, When You Have Shoes?

3 Nov

Talk about killer heels!  These bad boys are unreal!  If this isn’t GAGA status, I don’t know what is.  If you’re feeling tough, wear these.  If your feeling B.A., wear these.  Or if you’re feeling not so pretty, DEFINITELY wear these.  I’ve never seen a more fun and wearable shoe, before now.  Can these spikes be just a trend?  I hope not!  I want them in the classic category along with my little black dress and red Jimmy Choo’s.

Ah, the bootie shoe.  By far the most comfortable heels ever worn.  If they didn’t stand out before then they sure do now.  These spikes are quickly beginning to take over all shoe types and I’m SHhhhhlikin’ it!  I think I’ll deck myself out in black and go for a stroll in a dark ally somewhere.  No one would dare mess with me…would they?

What’s wrong with this picture? Ooooh ooh, I know, I know! THE HEEL.  Where’d ya go, my two little height projectors?  Looks like the souls or going solo this time.  If you can’t do the 5” heel, I don’t recommend doing an infinity” heel while preforming a balancing act.  CONSUMERS BE WARNED.

These shoes should come with a warning sign themselves; “Caution: Be careful when crossing legs or you’ll end up with a peg-leg.”

Taking the combat boot to a whole new level!  Please hand me my light grey acid washed skinny jeans with my ripped Pink Floyd (off the should) tee and lets call it a day, shall we?  I can’t get enough of these shoes.
