Browsing around the web and stumbled across these beauties. A vintage pair of nude encrusted slingbacks from the 80s. If only I could wear a 6.5…I could only dream. They are darling. I would pair them with a dress, skirt, or pant. Basically, you wouldn’t be able to get me out of them. So, if this find intrigues you, journey on over to Nasty Gal and grab them up. There are also some other nice pairs of vintage finds you might like. Take a look! If anyone indulges, email me pics.

It’s Friday. Hope everyone enjoys their weekend.

Fall Must Have: Fringe

These days  I automatically go for contrast and texture when getting dressed. Sequins, printed leggings, and design stockings have been simple ways to give ordinary outfits a little pizazz.  For those of you who have been dying to add some intriguing pieces to your wardrobe, but had no idea of what to add, today is your lucky day. I have gathered 4 categories of fall must haves where you can choose to indulge in 1 piece, or all!

I hope you all enjoy and find something that excites you; because I believe fashion should always excite you. Happy shopping and let me know if you think the fall must have list is missing a trend.

Chloe Lace-Up Wedge BootI may be late on discovering this beauty of a boot, but I am in love. This Chloe Lace-up Wedge Boot is to die for. I want them oh so bad! Paired with jeans and a tee, or a sweater dress with stockings…they could so be my everyday footwear of choice. I know you all might be getting bored with my boot obsession, but you’ll just have to get over it!..lol 😉

Michael Kors Multi Zip Boots

Ugh…so I finally found these boots! I was blog surfing one day, as usual, when I heard the mention of multi zip boots. I was floored. I searched for awhile, but had no luck. Well low and behold I was web browsing some clothing sites (like I needed to be looking) and I found these ultra FAB boots. They are functional, as well as sexy. If you can’t get with these babies then…..well I don’t know what to say to you.

They are priced for a pretty penny of $891.00 and can be yours, because they can’t be mine…(See: Boots, Boots, & Boots….Did I Mention Boots?! )

Mmmm...so FAB

Mmmm...so FAB

See...so functional!

I was sitting around the other day and thought to myself  “Man, I don’t show enough love to my fellas.”  I adore fashions of both sexes, so it is only right that I do more for my guys. I ran across some kicks that I thought you all might like, so I decided to share. Though kicks are year round footwear, it’s now fall. Every girl is running around feigning for their fall footwear fix, so I’m sure you fellas are doing the same. So, let me know what you think or if you have already had your eyes set on any of them.

*If you have found some hot kicks of your own or a wish list pair, share! I would love to do a post for you!

I enjoy randomly searching different desginers and seeing what they have to offer for the current season. So I was browsing today and found this lovely sheepskin patchwork shearling coat from Matthew Williamson’s winter collection. This coat intrigued me, because I am in an attempt at expanding my outer wear collection for this fall and winter season. However, I do not have over $5000 dollars to spend on this particular coat, but I will let you know how my expansion venture is coming as I add more pieces. TTYS

Fall and winter are my favorite seasons when it comes to footwear. I am obsessed with boots, however I get a little discombobulated when it comes to purchasing a pair, because I was blessed with more than the average calf. I die to own so many pairs of FAB boots, but I have yet to find a designer that creates hot boots in extended calf widths, so I decided to share some of the MANY pairs I would own IF I could. My solution to this problem…design boots for us more than average calf gals…and not those hideous boots you find when searching extended calf. So here are a few delicious pair I have found. If I could put EVERY pair I liked, we would be here for eternity. Hope you enjoy :0)

If you’re a boot lover like me or have run across a FAB pair, share with us. Post the link and Ill create a post especially for your favorite boots.

*If anyone knows where to find some FAB extended knee high boots, PLEASE let me know. I would also like to thank those who still stopped by Blue Jean Clouds in my absence. Next time I’ll try not stay away so long. TTYS!

Christian Louboutin Bridget Strass

I am so in love with Christian Louboutin right now. He creates such beautiful shoes. These “Bridget Strass” Louboutin pumps were worn by J. Lo at the VMAs, but I was so taken back by her choice of dress, that I did not catch these beauties…and believe me, I’m upset about it. These gorgeous creations have been spotted on Khloe Kardashian, Scarlett Johannsen, Leelee Sobieski, and will be worn by Sarah Jessica Parker in the Sex in the City sequel. I love texture and contrast, so these Bridget pumps are right up my alley. I first saw and fell in love with the gold pair, but then saw the leopard pair and wish to have both. The leopard pair can be purchased from Barney’s for $1795.

The Emmy’s were last night and overall, the red carpet did not wow me. There were a few dresses I liked , and so I have decided to share them with you. I was able to find most of the designers, but I am missing a couple. So far Marchesa is leading in most successful pieces on the carpet. Kudos to Marchesa for embodying such delicacy and femininity. Speaking of Marchesa, it reminds me that I spotted (courtesy of The Lipstick Diaries) a pair of gorgeous transparent shoes from Christian Louboutin. Louboutin has teamed up with Marchesa for the 2010 spring collection and is doing it B.I.G. Be looking for them.

Now, there once was a time when the red carpet at such an event as The Emmy’s, would be filled with elegant and sexy gowns that we would kill to be in. However, this award show did not do it for me. I did pick some gowns I found to have character and be the best that I saw. Let me know what you think.

Found these ladies to glamorous in their long evening gowns, but felt Byrne should have had a chignon or waved tresses for her Valentino.

***I apologize for the Louboutin Marchesa plug-in, but I felt it was only right as I was discovering how many hitters Marchesa had on the carpet!

The weather is changing and I am excited! I absolutely adore fall fashions and all that it brings. Fall is about layering and pairing those summer finds you couldn’t wait to use for slightly cooler weather. If you’re anything like me you might be a tad bit wound up about the fall fashions and not know where to begin. Personally, I am beginning with outer wear, and decided to help you get started! This season holds a plethora of jackets and blazers of many different styles. Whether you are looking for your leather biker jacket, boyfriend blazer, or denim throw-on its waiting to be found and rocked by you. I journeyed to Topshop to gather some ideas to show you all. This season embellishments and exaggerated shoulders are FAB! I have always been into personalizing my pieces, so this season should be fun. Embellishments and exaggerated shoulders do not just apply to outer wear, but clothes as well. The one shoulder dress and exaggerated shoulder top are also popular trends. However, I picked a few pieces from Topshop that I found to portray this season’s outer wear necessities. Remember, trends are simply that and should be a guide. Individuality is key…you never want to look like anyone other than yourself!

If this isn't bejeweled enough for you, I don't know what is...lol
