I was browsing the shopnastygal.com site and came across the Sam Edelman Zoe Boot. They look exactly like the Balenciaga Fall 2006 boot. What a to die for collection. 3 years for this Balenciaga boot to be knocked off, interesting. I posted about the Balenciaga Spring 2007 Lego shoe trickle down effect last year. I will have to gather more evidence for my 2 – 3 year public palatability theory of Balenciaga shoes. I’ll be watching. images: shopnastygal.com and style.com
Seshat Boots by Stella McCartney for Adidas I have been eying these boots after I first posted about the fall 2006 Stella collection from Adidas. I think they are more obnoxious than my white Sorels. Capezio came through for me in the end. I got the last pair of 8s in the store.
I wrote about wanting this Marc Jacobs cape in the fall. I happened to see a few of them at Holt Renfrew yesterday on sale. It looks like they didn’t sell to well because there were few left over. They even had one in my size, sigh. It was still not cheap enough for me to buy it.
Guillaume Hinfray shoes I fell in love with these shoes at George C in Yorkville. I love the box toe of the latest crop of hot ballerina shoes to come out this season. They were 50% off when I saw them as it was during their boxing day sales. If you are lucky you might be able to pick some up. I bought myself a cheap and dirty pair at Winners. They are burgundy fake velvet upper. image: guillaumehinfray.com
United Nude shoes Fold Hi This is a perfect black bootie for me. It has a round toe and the elasticized upper looks like it hugs the foot perfectly. I can see this with black tights and a cute little black dress.
My most active commenter “wondering” got me thinking about Frye boots again after this post, so I decided to see what was new on the site. I hit the shoe motherload. Frye definitely makes some of the hottest boots ever, I’m drooling. Riding Back Zip Riding boots of my dreams, they would be perfect in all black Dorado Low
I love La Senza Spirit. I don’t lounge around in activewear, I sweat and I run. I expect a lot of out of my gear. I recently bought some workout clothes and was very impressed with the fit and construction. Best of all, it’s way cheaper than Lululemon. I saw these sunglasses in the store recently. I love the shape and the frames. It should have been no surprise to me when I discovered that they were basically a knockoff of a pair by Tom Ford called Whitney The La Senza Spirit version are $16.50CAD, Tom Ford $300US. I tend to lose sunglasses a lot, so I will be looking at the cheap version. I was surprised at how cheap things are on sale at La Senza Spirit. I bought 2 pairs of capris at 20 bucks a piece, a pair of black pants (that fit amazing) for 30 bucks and 2 tank tops for $12.50 a piece. That’s 5 items for the price of one pair of lousy lululemon pants (I’m not a big …
Anna Sui Antique effect boots I’ve been pinning over blue boots for the last few years. Last year I was hoping to score these blue Frye boots. They were half off and not in my size. I saw these Anna Sui boots and fell in love. The detailing is amazing.
Met Sandal by Devi Kroell It’s taken awhile but I finally have an appreciation for the metallic accessories. I love these metallic python sandals from Devi Kroell which are available at Zola Shoes in Toronto. image: devikroell.com and zolashoes.com
These Zac Posen booties I love Zac Posen. Surprisingly, his S/S2007 show isn’t in Gap Press. Boo urns
Ciao Ciao Tokidoki for LeSportsac Tokidoki by LeSportsac is my current obsession. I want this bag badly. EDIT: Fixed the incorrect link and item name.
Eley Kishimoto Shoes Love the peep toe boots. Eley Kishimoto is another designer you won’t find in Canada. Boo Urns.
A pearl and silk necklace by Knotty Girls I first saw this necklace at the Style Revolution Sale. It was held at the Design Exchange. The quality of the vendors at the show was amazing. It’s a shame that the turnout wasn’t great. The financial district on a weekend is devoid of people. If they had held it during the week, they would have made a killing. I work in the financial district. Women like to shop on their lunch hours. Look at the Winners in Scotia Plaza between 12pm – 2pm. Madness. This necklace comes in red/black, black/grey, purple and black/navy. Danielle Kerr loves ribbons and they are the focus her designs. She only uses luxury ribbon from places like Mokuba and silks from B.C. Semi-precious stones, base metals, glass beads, yarn or silver can be accents to the ribbon. You can purchase Knotty Girls at: Made You Look SnazzyGirl Nathalie-Roze and Co Knotty Girls will be at the following shows: November 26, 2006: The Artisan’s Gift Fair, The Tranzac in the Annex December …
Fluevog has some great shoes this season. I was in the store with Carolyn. This was on Sunday after the TFBB at The Drake. We both fell in love with the Sienna’s and had to try them all. I’ve been looking for a great bootie this year and the Sienna is it. The heels look pretty daunting on these shoes and I thought they would be just another great looking pair of torture chambers. I was wrong, they are the perfect heel height, the platform in the front is perfect. I love a heel between 2 and 3 inches after that it gets a bit sketchy. At L’Oreal Fashion week the L’Oreal makeup show used white versions of the Sienna that were so freakin’ amazing. Unfortunately, they were specially made and will not be available to the public. I tried on the booties below from Aldo a few weeks ago and really liked them. They are made in China and I decided that I have been burned enough. The ban must be upheld.

I did not attend. I really though about it for a moment. I’m just not ready to beat people for H&M clothes. Real Viktor & Rolf clothes at H&M prices would warrant me getting into the girl stomping mood. I’d make sure to wear my best stomping boots. I was in H&M on Friday and a sale associate told me the collection sold out in 15 mins. He also mentioned that it was ugly. I did see few pairs of the tuxedo pants left. They didn’t seem any different in quality to any other H&M product. I thought the collection was pretty nice overall and there was a few pieces I liked. The only thing I wasn’t jazzed about the hearts. I don’t think I’ll ever try to buy anything from an H&M collection, even if it was Alexander McQueen. It’s just too much trouble and I don’t care enough. image: H&M
Fall Winter 2006 shoes from Maloles I featured Maloles shoes before and I just discovered their fall line up. I love the asymmetrical opening on these boots. I bet they sit nicely against the leg and look great with skirts. I’ve seen a lot of these box toe ballerina flats, I love them. These ones look like they have a little face.
I recently blogged about buying these great patent shoes. For those who haven’t read the comments, the damn things broke on me after I wore them for the first time. I took them back to Town Shoes and I thought I would get an immediate refund/exchange. This was clearly a manufacturer’s defect and I have a right to a new pair of shoes. Well, I was told that they would have to go to repair first and then they would see if they could fix them. These shoes couldn’t be repaired, I could tell. I was told it was policy and didn’t’ really push the issue. They would go to repair and I wouldn’t have to pay. I was told it would take a week and they would call. Thursday was a week and I had no call. So I decided to give them a call and find out what the hell was going on. They found the shoes in the store and they were still broken. I was prepared to give them hell about …
So I bit the bullet and got myself some patent shoes. I spent a lot of time looking at what was out there before I settled on Bea by O Oscar an Oscar de la Renta They have a little bit of a platform and they aren’t sky high like the styles that are out there. My favourite part is that they have a rounded toe. I picked these up at Town Shoes in Toronto and Zappos.com online. Now I need a black patent handbag to match. 🙂
Sorina mary janes from Me Too. I couldn’t resist these old school heels. I’m a big fan of the rounded toe. I like the almond toe shape too, but frown on the stiletto point. With a 2.5 inch heel height there are no issues walking in these. I picked these up at the Shoe Company.
Chic Blesk Krasota skating jackets I want to live out my inner figure skater with these fun jackets. This is so great with the tail. I’m not really a velour wearer, but I could be persuaded with these jackets. I could live out my figure skating fantasy on Rollerblades. There is only one retailer in Canada Vertina 525 West Georgia street Vancouver BC Canada V6B 1Z5 604 632 0132
A bag by Renee Davide I love the shape and minimal nature of this tote. The colour is amazing and I love the white thread detail. A red bag is classic and paired with some red shoes, love that. I have a perfect pair of boots to go with this bag, sigh
What is this abomination of the Sorel boot. I spit in your general direction. Seriously, what the hell is this? Michael Kors, why!.
Previously I’ve talked about wanting a Smythe Les Vests sailor jacket. The Fall 2006 collection is pretty fun and has a red version of the sailor jacket I loved. This black wool trench is so perfect. I love the length and high waisted belt.
