Well... well.. well.. now what do we have here?

I do believe that Christian Louboutin has done it again and this time he called her 'Lola Montes'. Before I even go in on this shoe, I have to ask for a moment of silence. ***silence permeates the air***  Ok, back to my commentary.. just wanted to pay a little respect to the royalty, Lola Montes, as she has made an appearance upon my blog! Lol.

No matter what your personal taste is.. you simply CANNOT deny the hauteness that is.. I love the teardrop shaped suede & mesh mix that runs up the spine of the boot! It has an invisible zip closure along the back and has an accompanying price tag of $1,030. *scratches head* That's actually not a bad price considering this is a boot and Louboutin has pumps that cost significantly more! Can someone say: MUST HAVE!!!

They also come in a few other colors...

The holidays are here so that means that you should be breaking out the sequins, glitter and sparkle! *snaps fingers* For all of you platform, thick heel loving shoenistas.. allow me to introduce you to "Lita" by Jeffrey Campbell! These shoes ooze style.. they ooze glam.. They are such a STATEMENT PIECE and anyone who knows me, knows that my closet is full of shoes that make a statement! Oooooookay! Besides, why should Dorothy be the only who rocks a pair of shoes that sparkle, thus making a statement? Where is it written that only people headed to see the Wizard can click their heels.. Move over Dorothy.. move over, I say!

'Lita' boasts a dynamic 5.5" heel with a 2" platform.. Perhaps I should mention this is not a shoe for amatuers. It is available in red, black, and gold but the confetti silver is my fave! These beauts come with a bargain price tag of $160. *deep sigh* That's like music to my ears... Jeffrey Campbell always gives you more bang for your buck! Oh how I love thee.. If you are dying to pair these with your holiday ensemble, don't fret... you can cop a pair here. I hear they are going pretty fast so you better move on them quickly!

Have a great day my lovelies!!

Wear your hair up! Wear your hair down! However you wear it.. be sure to ACCESSORIZE! Headbands have many different looks and they are taking over! They come in suede string, chains, jute rope, leather braided, diamonds, feathers and jeweled. With so many options, there has to be a style to your liking!

Headbands are every where. No matter what your budget is, they are available to you. I came across this super cute chain braided, snake print headband in Nordstroms a few days ago. [See below] Ok wait for it.. waittttt for it... It's only $38! Can you believe it? This is a total bargain price in my book. Dare I say.. the look for less. It comes in 4 different colors and I bought all 4! #DontJudgeMe

To make this headband yours, simply click here. If you are looking for something a little cheaper, I would recommend stopping by your local beauty supply. I'm always amazed at all of the things sold in the beauty supply! I ran into a beauty supply over on La Brea the other day to grab some hair gloss spray and they had headbands for only $3.99 so it's a great alternative for all of you chica's on a tight budget!

Fall and Winter ushers boots/booties into our lives, making them relevant, yet again.. I tend to wait eagerly wondering what the business is going to be season to season.. Every now and then a designer decides to produce a shoe that will give any shoenista a HAUTE ATTACK at first glance. Welp.. United Nude has done just that with their Iris van Herpen United Nude Crystalization LIMITED EDITION booties. Owwwwww!! These things are the! Someone call 9-1-1 because I am having problems breathing!

The Iris van Herpen X United Nude product is a glamorous ankle bootie with smooth round lines and golden leather detailing on the front and back of the shoe, with three-dimensional characteristics. Transparency, reflections and movements create the effect of visual estrangement. The construction of the shoe is so complicated and precise that each pair is 100% hand-made with the highest grade Italian calf Nappa available. They are available for $995 and available exclusively at United Nude.

They are also available in a few other colors:

Hi Shoenistas.. Hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving! I have so much to be thankful for.. I won't get into all of that right now because I would have to write a novel but I will say God is good! :o)

Today, I am featuring a heel-less sandal from Antonio Berardi.. My-oh-my.. How HAUTE are these little gems? Yessir.. they are CERTIFIABLE in my book!!!!! The 5 inch creations by Briton Antonio Berardi can hardly be described as high heels, since they lack the most important part - a heel. Stars including Gwyneth Paltrow and Uma Thurman invested in a black patent version shortly after they were unveiled in Berardi's spring/summer collection in Paris. Victoria Beckham has a snakeskin pair.

They are currently on sale in Browns stores in London, where they have to be ordered up to five weeks in advance. Lincolnshire-born Berardi, 39, said he was inspired by Latin American music and 1980s post-modernism, adding: "When you walk, it is almost on tiptoe, you look really dainty."

Dainty? Hmm.. that's not a word that came to my mind but I'll let you be the judge.. Love or Loathe?

Tamara Mellon has quit Jimmy Choo. The entrepreneur, who founded the footwear and accessories brand in 1996 along with former cobbler Jimmy Choo has stepped down as Chief Creative Officer of the company following its takeover and integration with private Italian luxury goods group Labelux.

The 44-year-old who ceased to have any financial interest in the group after its $800 million acquisition in May is set to be followed out of the company by current Chief Executive Joshua Schulman, who will complete a transition phase into 2012. Since Tamara and Jimmy set up the business, it has grown from being a small company to a global brand, which sells handbags, scarves and fragrances, among other luxury items.

 "Keeping innovation and energy flowing is key. I dreamed of creating the perfect luxury accessory house, one that captures the hearts of women around the world. Even now with everything that we have accomplished we are far from resting on our laurels, what excites me most is the thrill of the next project, the next idea. While I am enormously proud of our brand's heritage, I know the best is yet to come," she said.

As a visionary and entrepreneur, it always saddens me to see founders ousted from the companies they launched.. Fortunately, once you have discovered the formula to success, you are able to recreate it over and over again.. Best of luck, Ms. Mellon.. you can never keep a FAB down!

Jennifer Lopez was spotted in Bueno Aires looking uber fab! She was there to film her new reality show 'Q Viva' and she was rocking a Herve Leger mini with these super HAUTE Jimmy Choo pumps! 

This Jimmy Choo pump packs the graphic punch of colorblock—but with the versatility of two neutral hues. The platform gives you an extra boost of height and confidence.
  • Two-tone matte calfskin and patent leather forms covetable curvaceous colorblock.
  • Almond toe conceals 1" platform.
  • 5" covered heel; 4" equiv.
  • Made in Italy.
If you want to make this shoe yours.. be prepared to splurge because this one is going to run you $850. Not bad at all.. I need these in my life!! Christmas is right around the corner and I need these to be under my tree. Santa I promise.. I have been a good girl all year long! :o)

Well hello my lovelies.. Long time, no talk! I know.. I know.. that's my fault but my life has been in overdrive.. I've had a lot of changes in the last few months. I've spent the last few months flying to Dallas looking at property/retail space for our store.. I've been working on freelance projects.. developing my style vids for Tyra.. and I was also blessed with the opportunity to design Madonna's line.. Material Girl! Umm yeah.. life has been hectic! Nevertheless, I'm back or at least I hope so.. They say the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step so guess what.. this is my first step! Lol.

According to many great style guides and guru's.. every girl should have a pair of basic converse sneakers.. These are a casual must for every fashionista.. I'm sure you can relate. Somedays are just a legging and oversized shirt kinda day.. Well, I came across these studded converse sneakers that are going for a pretty little price of $499! It seems kind of steep for Converse but if you are one who likes to be over-the-top, this may be right up your alley! But I'll let you be the judge... SOLE HOT OR SOLE NOT?
