To anyone who knows me, whether in person or just online, I'm sure it's no surprise that the first two items on my wish list are shoes. Some people treat shoes as an afterthought, other as a finishing touch to an outfit. But for me, they are the base around which I build an outfit. A great pair of shoes can inspire my style and lift everything from my feet to my spirits. I just can't have a bad day when I'm wearing a killer set of heels! For this set, I chose two of the pairs that I long for the most, one from each of my favorite designers: Christian Louboutin and Alexander McQueen.
The last shoes I bought (around this time last night, actually) were a fabulous pair of red suede wedge booties by Betsey Johnson. They are very versatile, perfect for both typical daytime wear and a night out clubbing. Of course, this means that now I want some new clothes to wear with them: a long, red cashmere cardi for daywear; and a black & red corset/skirt combo for clubbing.
People tell me there's more to life than shoes, and I must admit that they are correct. There are also butter soft, top quality, leather clothes. I can think of nothing in the world more luxurious than this Alexander McQueen long leather coat. And let's not forget the Gareth Pugh leggings that I've been eyeing online for a while. Cool enough looking that I'll even forgive them for (possibly) not being made of real leather.
