I’ve been having a little personal retail therapy this past week.
P.S. I deserved it. At least my mom said so.
I’ve had my eye on these Burberry Studded Ankle Strap Pumps. They are covered with beautiful pyramid studs on the heel cup and the ankle strap. Delicate from the front with a “don’t f-ing mess with me” vibe from behind.
I also dug the Manolo Blahnik studded leather open toe t-strap sandles Very cool- but maybe a little too generic to spend my whole pay check on.
But then I couldn’t pass up these Jeffery Campbell’s that I found in Assembly in West Village. They are ridiculous, over the top, and I couldn’t live without them. They blew the Burberrys straight out the water, for me at least.
I also grabbed these pearl encrusted platform sandals as well. I cant wait to wear them with some skinny jeans and a white tee—totally simple with a party at the bottom. They will be awesome to cover up the ankle strap during the day for a more subtle look and then cuff the jeans and go all out for the evening….oh and 50% off is such as selling point 😉 thanks Dani, aka the coolest chick at Assembly.
They are ludicrously comfortable as well.
Also on my adventure at Assembly I picked up a really cute sheer black top, William Rast Scarlet shorts, and the Stella bootcut jeans. I know ill be wearing everything very soon, so ill just post pictures of those goodies another day.
I also forgot how freaking cool the boxes for the Jeffery Campbell shoes are. They all have like a different cool/ random story in the inside bottom of the box. This ones is just a random “singles” page of people that he works with. Quite Hilarious. And of course, myself being in advertising and marketing- Brilliant.
…and cue everyone tilt their head to the left. It’s a love confession letter in the bottom of another J. Campbell box. Love it.
In my travels I will be looking for these Elizabeth and James “Haley” wedges. They are the perfect contrast to my recent Jeffery Campbell purchases. They look totally comfortable. About a 4” heel with a 1” platform brings me to a nice 5’10 height—ill take it.
I also am obsessed with this Robert Lee Morris Cluster Sphere bracelet.. Amazing masculine leather strap with a silver buckle, spheres, and pistons—I love it. Remarkably badass; with just enough glam.
And on my luxe list….
The ‘New Jackie’ shoulder bag in the grey guccissima leather with grey leather trim. Gucci does bags so well. I have had mine for about 9 years and I just cant seem to part with it, no matter how ratty the sides get. This one may be a perfect replacement.
Also–to the Dallasites.
If you haven’t been to Cru a Wine Bar in the West Village you must go now. If you can hold off until Sunday they have half-price bottles of wine—which is awesome. They have just a long enough menu to allow everyone to choose their favorite wine. My dad arrived in to DFW around 9pm on Sunday and he and I went out to catch some late munchies and a drink, Cru was perfect.
Off the street enough to not be bothered by the stumbles and screams coming out of Social House, but still in the vicinity to watch the antics.
We shared the flight of Sauvignon Blancs and I ordered a glass of my new favorite—Its from Spain—I will have to go back and get the name. Also whole heartedly recommend the Cru House Salad. My dads Gorgonzola and Pear rustic pizza looked divine as well. I apologize for the Blackberry Pics, left my camera in the car.
