Tuesday Shoesday….Aquazzura!

These Aquazzura booties are what dreams are made of.  I adore the clover cut out and they are so amazingly flattering on your feet.  Seen on fashion elite celebs like Kim Kardashian (Kanye approved), Olivia Palermo and Mindy Kaling (Mindy?!? that’s ALL I had to hear) these booties have a modern, feminine chic flair. I mean if they got the Kanye West fashion seal of approval, they have to be a keeper right? Paired best with a cocktail dress, fun skirt or some shorts.

Inspiration from Anywhere…Last Minute Halloween Party Ideas!

I LOVE Halloween but what I don’t love is things that scare me and noodles that are supposed to be worms, so needless to say my version of a Halloween party is gore free and full of Happy Halloween pretty. Quickly back away from the frightening props and run towards a soft palette of grey, black, peach and metallics. Instead of a red punch full of eye ball ice cubes (ugh I want to cry), how about a cocktail rimmed in cinnamon with a DIY metallic gold spider??? You can totally class up this holiday and still have a Boo-riffic time.

Happy Halloween!!!
