Zigi Soho Khloe Striped Sandal

One trend that always seems to stand the test of time is the nautical trend. Every year, I see a striped top or maxi dress on the runways or in the streets and this year is no different. Either in red, white or navy hues, I’m sure you have some pieces in your closet already that can help you pull together a ready to set sail look. However, if you don’t (or just in the mood to splurge) then take a look at the Zigi Soho Khloe Striped Sandal’s.

IMG_8310 IMG_8309 IMG_8305 IMG_8297 IMG_8303

Shoe Details:
- Blue and white striped pattern
-Striped side bow accent
- 5 inch covered heel
- Platform: 1.25 inch espadrille platform
- Zipper back closure
Star-rating: 5/5

They are extremely comfortable for such a high stiletto heel. The only thing that I would make you weary of is the front almond shaped toebox. Occasionally, some ladies, including myself, suffer from minor toe hangover, especially if you have wide feet. With the Khloe’s, I found my pinky toe to be reaching slightly over the edge, but this can easily be fixed with some slip grips (check out Foot Petals) or by purchasing .5 size up.

These are definitely eye catching, so for only $79.95 at DSW.com, the Zigi Soho Khloe’s are definitely worth the splurge. Now if only these came with a yacht….

The Dunk pump is a great shoe to add a tailored chic look to your wardrobe. She’ll be great paired with a pantsuit or skirt set.

Dune London Lockies Satchel

So I got caught up on DSW again (no surprise there) and saw this beautiful mini satchel from Dune Lockies!

Bag Details:
- Faux leather mini satchel
- Top foldover with a clasp closure
- 3 inch drop handle strap
- 11in x 6in x 10in
- Fabric lining with a zip pocket and slip open pocket

I’ll admit when I got it I was a little bit surprised at how small it was. I thought it would be as big as my normal satchels but it is more of a tea cup mini size bag. Despite that…I absolutely love it! The color is more of green-mint green as opposed to the blue-mint green hue you see in the pictures online. The mint green color sold out very quickly, so I gathered a few bags that I think maybe good substitutes.

Zigi Soho Tia Pump

I know I mentioned before that I was adding more pointy-toe shoes to my collection so when these Zigi Soho Tia Pumps appeared on DSW.com I knew I had to have them.

IMG_6949 IMG_6992 IMG_6996

Shoe details:
- Faux leather upper
- Patent heel cover
- 4.5 stiletto heel
- No platform
- Scallop topline silhouette

Can I just tell you how amazing the silhouette of these shoes are? I couldn’t resist that and the color. They run true to size but I had to break them at first. If you wear a lot of platform heels, getting used to these might take a little bit of time but the style it adds to your wardrobe is definitely worth it.

Steve Madden & Brian Atwood Partnership

Oh be still my beating heart!

One of my favorite designers (probably favorite shoe designer) Steve Madden has acquired fellow shoemaker Brian Atwood from its previous owner – the Jones Group. Brian Atwood first signed with the Jones Group in 2010 for the launch of his contemporary line, B by Brian Atwood.

The new pieces will not be released until Spring 2015, so we have a little bit of time to kill as we wait. I wasn’t sure if my Initial “let’s have a party in our pumps” reaction was a normal one but I am ecstatic! It’s like two shoe gods merging into -cue dramatic music- a bigger shoe god!!!!

I am predicting that this partnership will launch Steve Madden’s brand into the luxury shoe line world and send Brian Atwood’s crashing into the closets of value shoppers.

I cropped together the picture above to illustrate why I’m having a “party in my pumps” ;)

Melt Cosmetics Bane & Blow

Melt Cosmetics released two new colors to their ultra matte lipstick collection – an intense black and emerald/green color.

Bane:
Bane is described as an ultra matte black lipstick and it definitely lives up to the hype. It is a creamy, dark, pigmented black that has a lot of color payoff. I applied the lipstick twice over my upper and lower lip to achieve this look. If you were disappointed by MAC Cosmetics Hautecore then you should definitely try Bane. Click here to purchase.

Blow:
Blow is described as an ultra creamy matte emerald lipstick. This one applies a bit more creamier than all of the rest of the lipsticks from their line but it has the same high pigmentation and long wearing color. From the promotional pictures, I was kind of hoping this color would be a deeper, dark emerald, however, it shows up as a forest green. It’s still a beautiful color but I wish Melt wouldn’t edit their photographs and alter the color. Click here to purchase.

For such an amazing color payoff, I had no staining on my lips after wearing it for 3 hours. They aren’t colors I would wear on an everyday basis but they are an amazing addition to a beauty addicts collection.
