Shoe Lust - Christian Louboutin for Marchesa

Lately, I've been seeing variations of these shoes on the Fashion blogs, mainly because a variation of the bottom ones will be worn in the second Sex and the City movie. Well, these shoes were seen on the runway for the Marchesa 2010 Spring Collection. The model wearing the shoes at the bottom had her tattoos displayed through the sheer shoes and definitely makes it more interesting. But they are gorgeous if you don't have tattooed feet.

Almost at 300 Sales on Etsy!

I am this close to reaching my next milestone on Etsy, which is 300 sales. So, as an incentive, I'm offering $5 off until 300 is reached! On many of my items, that's like a 20% discount!
Thank you to all who have supported me. I truly appreciate it. Have a great weekend!

Word of the Day - Coffee

While I'm not a huge coffee drinker, I do enjoy an occasional latte or coffee when desperately needed. In any case, I decided to browse through Etsy using the term coffee and here are some faves:

1. Medium Circles Coffee Table my michaelarras, $599
2. Conquistadore Earrings by polestar, $48
3. eco coffee sleeve - home sweet home by karley, $6.50
4. Coffee Sack Eco-Chic Pillow Cover by BrinandNohl, $24.99
5. The Cocktail Dress - bamboo jersey in dark coffee bean by econica, $115

I love the pillow made from a coffee sack. Very cool.

Happy Autumn!

I have to say, Fall is my favorite season. I love browsing (and buying) Fall coats/jackets and boots and shoes! I've been trying not to tempt myself too much, so I haven't been window shopping too much. But I did a little today and found these items. If I actually did buy them, I know I would get a lot of wear out of them.
The jacket is the Katrina from Soia & Kyo. I love their outerwear, but have yet to own a piece. Maybe this year will be the year. The boots are the Frankie Buckle boot from Frye, and cushion cut moonstone studs from onegarnetgirl. I normally like to wear dangly earrings, but since this coat has a high neck, I think studs are perfect.

I'll be posting more finds as I do more window shopping, and if you have any favorites, I'd love to hear about them.

reCONNECT with Monkeys!

A while back, Emily of mchenwears, contacted me about my Sway necklace in Silver. Well, I had been coveting her reCONNECT shirt dress, so we did a little trade. She is really cool, and if we lived in the same city, well I bet a lot of fun would be had. Anyway, I was so excited when I received the shirt in the mail, and I'm finally getting around to posting some pics of me wearing them around town. Seattle to be specific.
The top picture is me at the Japanese Tea Garden, and the bottom is on the Bainbridge Ferry with the Seattle skyline in the background. Cute, yea? I suggest checking out her shop to see all her original illustrations on tees and other goodies. Thanks Emily!
