Shuesday: I don't know why I like it

but I do. A fun shoe to fancy up a plain black suit. Plus, if anyone can tell me what it says ...

Shuesday: I hate to speak ill of the dead

but Alexander darling, what is this? I'm sure it will sell out, but still ... ugh.

You've heard me gush about WendyB's jewelry before, (also here and here) and I think I've mentioned my dislike of heart shaped ... well, anything really.

As you'd expect from the sassy jewelry goddess that she is, WB has created the exception that proves the rule. I /die/ for this ring. And it's inspired by Buffy and Spike, one of the best TV couples ever. What more could a girl want the day after V-Day?

And there are more similar designs to come! What a beautiful piece, as well as a conversation starter.

Icons we mourn: Alexander McQueen

I don't know what to say about the untimely death of Alexander McQueen, except that I wish I owned more than one piece of his clothing. An amazing designer, gone too soon. Click here for a retrospective, via NY Mag.

Shuesday: Olympic fever

So you say there isn't any snow in Vancouver? Put these on, click your heels, and see what happens.

Samurai Shopper

I discovered the Samurai Shopper at the NY Times recently, and I'm featuring him/her here because, really, anyone who gives an award to q-tips deserves at least 15 seconds in the Boudoir.
Welcome to awards season, when everything unreal and unimportant in showbiz is celebrated, digested and parsed with bloated, brainlessly baroque observations of no import whatsoever. The Samurai Shopper, as usual, is throwing her hat into the fluttering mists of fatuity to honor her own superstars: those beauty products that may or may not grace the faces of telegenic Golden Globers, Grammy-grabbers and the unfortunately named S.A.G. nominees. I’ll deploy the same sentimental, indulgent, politically circumspect judgment in awarding my prizes as the Hollywood corps does with theirs.

The Olympics are back

... and so is Johnny's backside. Oh dear. Just because it's by Rodarte (also featured in The New Yorker recently) doesn't make it OK.

The FG is not sure what she thinks of these ... I mean, they're Wolford, but still ...

Shuesday: Imagine, imagine, you can imagine

making your own shoes, under the direction of an expert! Sounds like sooooo much fun ...

Ms. Neithardt, who makes her living as a Jungian-inspired clairvoyant (that’s a seer who knows her archetypes), and who has the diction and timing of a stand-up comedian, was moved to make shoes for herself a few years ago. They are fantastical creations of fig bark and rooster feathers, spotted python and blood-red kid leather. (She has also made shoes from a clear green plastic placemat, a pair of crystal earrings and a black lace bustier.)
