A New Pair of Shoes!

The designer for Alexander McQueen's footwear, just launched his eponymous line, Gaetano Perrone - giving new meaning to owning a new pair of shoes.....outrageously, imaginatively different

I could only see that they were being sold on line at yoox - so you may have to contact the company directly for where to find these and other creations. and website:

Great style lives on - Azzedine Alaia

Azzedine Alaia was born in 1939 - who knew? He is still so relevant....which is exactly the point of this post. It's not age, it's relevance that matters...

Inspired by his glamourous sister, and educated at L'Ecole des Beaux Arts in Tunis, ha actually began studying sculpture, which gave him the understanding of the human form. He is a genius....

He remains one of the few designers, who has not sold his soul, and his distribution is in the best stores globally. In the U.S. his beautiful creations can be found at Barney's, Mary Jane Denzer, Ikram and 4510.

Saying Goodbye to Old Friends....

One of my favorite pair of shoes, was a purchase made at least 10 years ago....and they are still relevant today. After a recent move, where my husband relentlessly criticized me for having too many clothes, shoes and bags, I decided that less is more. Or at least I should get rid of shoes and clothes that no longer fit! These were always a bit too snug, which is why they were only worn twice. One thing is for sure, you can lose weight, but our feet NEVER get smaller - shame, but it's the other way around...

Here they are - my prized Bottega Veneta Iconic Woven Pumps - yes they should live on forever - branding Eternal Chic - however, they will be living in someone's else's closet, and hopefully enjoyed.

They are on eBay - here's the link:

As they say on Ebay - Good Luck - Have fun bidding :-)

Wild Tees

A new way to wear animal prints! How funny is this? There is a gorilla, a couple of kitties, guinea pigs - there's a shark - they're really fun.....

I found them on the new auction site FAB and they're only $11 and $14 !!!:

I loved this one - a must have for the equestrian!
