Team Stiletto!

I am waging a war. A war against clunky, dumb looking stacked heels. I mean honestly, who does this look good on? Chyna? Brooke Hogan? The shoes this season are so klutzy looking, with these giant ugly heels. I'm sorry, but I'll take my shoes with a side of femininity, please. The heels don't have to be sky-high, but can't they be pretty? And not look like they were made for a transvestite clown?

On the same shoe note, I am also not the biggest fan of the whole "bootie" craze for this season *insert screams from diehard fashionistas here*. BUT - that being said, I did find a FABULOUS bootie that I am obsessed with, that I also just got on SALE!

Nine West Naples Bootie
(on sale for $70)
They also come in black, also on sale for $70 - and since I bought two pairs in the store, I got an additional 20% off! Cha-ching! They look terrific with skinny jeans (CANNOT deal with the bootie+skirt look) and actually are very comfortable..

My next purchase today was a definite steal - I had a 15% off coupon from American Eagle Outfitters and I decided to pop in for a look around - wow, am I glad I did. THIS is what I picked up:

AE Navy Toggle Coat ($139.50)
I can't tell you how well this coat fits! It's almost like it was tailored.. and for $140 for a toggle coat, it's a pretty good deal!

I don't actually have a ton of monogram stuff (shocking, I know) and my monogram necklace is my staple Elsa Peretti initial. BUT - these necklaces from Intuition are pretty cute -

Kacey K. Monogram Necklace ($338 - $620)

As always, I love me some argyle, especially this new sweater vest from Vineyard Vines:

Aquinnah Sweater Vest ($98)

Now this brings me to my Vineyard Vines enigma - there is a magical mystery tote that exists on the website, but I can't find it anywhere! It's the patchwork tote in the below photo (I want I want I want!):
but under the "Totes and Wristlet: New Arrivals" column it isn't there. BOO!

Speaking of "boo", I'll leave you all with something from Kitson that will turn all your boo-boos into bad-ass..

Tattoo Bandage Assortment ($6.95)

I'm back my lovelies..

I've been away for far too long and I won't bore you all with the excuses. Although (just this one) my computer is on it's last legs and frankly I can't afford to buy one at the moment... Because I have to buy boots instead.. ahem... Well summer has turned to fall (I think? It was 73 degrees yesterday...) and with fall comes fall clothing.. which at this rate I will be wearing in January!

Anyway - here are some recent internet items I stumbled upon, in no particular order:

From The Outfitters for Urbanites:
Wool Camden Blazer ($200) Pair this with skinny black jeans and a ruffled button-down, and you've got Ralph Lauren Black Label on the cheap!

Lux Exeter Blazer ($68) Love this - dress it up or make it punky with a graphic tee..

Spiewak Helena Cape
($150) Old school but fun... I wish it came in more colors!

Lux Layered V Neck Tank
($48) Being that I tend to be lazy, I like it when outfits are already chosen for me. LOVE this. (vest is attached to the tank)

Up next, Pink Mascara:

Mike and Chris Colton Jacket ($242) The comfyness of a sweatshirt, but so much chicer...

Dolce Vita Sass Suede Boot
($132) So cute and surprisingly affordable!

Also from Dolce Vita, but found at Intuition are these Moccasin Boots ($106).. Not sure why they're called that since they don't look like mocs, but I think they are v. nice flat boots..

Also in the flat boot category, these Ritte riding boots ($99.95) from Steve Madden - saw a girl try them on in the store, they are deceivingly flattering:
Awhile back, I got a very cute change purse from CKBradley. I wished they had made the pattern into clothing, and lo and behold, my wish has come true! Love the skirt:

Palmetto Skirt ($198)
On a final note, I am seriously disappointed in the handbags this season. I feel like most of the designers have regurgitated old designs in new colors and fabrics. Not cutting it, at all. Very upset. Something better change soon or I'm going to file a complaint with Marc Jacobs. In the meantime, this D&G Buckle Bag ($1,350) isn't bad but I'm not jumping up and down about it.

On that note, I'm off to get some beauty sleep and dream about new handbags that haven't been designed yet. More posts to come, promise!

Love you all like Britney loves her Cheetos..
