The inspiration of the color nude has got me thinking about REAL nudity… I couldn’t help but notice how many ads show off “boobs”, whether it be marketing their ad campaign for jeans, lingerie, and/or shoes. Geez, talk about side boobage.
Now, onto nude shoes that are perfect for the Fall:
Casadei -”8044 Triple Platform Peeptoe Bootie”-
$830.00 $607.05 (on sale at Endless.com)
And my favorite! Jimmy Choo- “Esam” Crystal Heel Platform- $1,695.00 (from Jimmy Choo store)
One of these days, I will own a pair of these…
Remember the scene where Michael J Fox discovers his first Nike Mags for the first time in the movie ‘Back to the Future’?
Well, you have a chance to own one for yourself. Nike has finally launched these HOT hi-top kicks on Ebay to auction off. Proceeds will be donated to Michael J. Fox parkinson’s research. BUT there’s a catch! Nike has created ONLY 1,500 pairs, so you must hurry and put in your bid NOW before Sept 18th!

Although, the laces may not tie themselves like in the movie, it DOES light up! Woot!
Attention all Nerds:
Just found out that George Lucas is releasing all 6 series titles on blu-ray, but you probably already knew this by now if you’re a huge Star Wars fan.
Although Darth Vador will not be featuring in these new series, you can wear a pair of Darth Vador sneakers to commemorate him…
Also, before I forget… just want to remind you about tomorrow’s FNO (Fashion Night Out). For those of you that live in LA, there will be local events going on at major shopping areas, such as Westfield Topange Mall- followed by a mini fashion show @ 7:50 pm and Tori Spelling appearance, South Coast Plaza, Santa Monica Place- with 2 runway shows at 6:30pm and 8pm, Beverly center with an appearance by nicole richie (event will be held from 6-11pm), Melrose, Robertson, & Venice.

In addition, there will also be an Ella Moss/Splendid sample sale held at the Cooper Building this Fri and Sat only. Here’s the deets for more info:
My favorite show of all time growing up, was none other than…’Saved by the Bell’
And after surfing the net today, I realized how much of the clothing and shoes these days have been recycled from the early 90′s. A lot of bold, bright and FLORAL has been incorporated in today’s fashion…
Kelly Kapowski inspired:
Nasty Gal- Renee Sweetheart floral dress $68
F21 frayed floral shorts $19.90.
UO bandeau top- 2 for $20. You can find here
F21- Floral Oxford- $24.80
Bayside High grey sweatshirt- $29.95. You can find here
Soul Boutique- You can find here
And of course, we can’t forget about heart-throb ‘Zack Morris’, who’s known for his Rico Suave charm and good looks. He was also a fashion icon, as well. I really believe that he was the one who brought back the vintage levi’s denim look, casio watches, and white hi-tops. Gawd, he’s gorgeous…
Zack Morris inspired:
Fila Men’s Savoy Shoe- $29.99. You can find here
This is like 3 of my favorite things in one: Boots, Rollerskates, and Rhinestones
Pretty damn awesomely fierce.
Here are a few purchases I made during my NY trip, which is why I am so broke now…. *sigh
I spent most of my time and money at Topshop in their accessory section, along with the street vendors in Soho
As you can see, I stuck with Topshop’s new “Freedom” jewelry collection. They’re great and so affordable.
This orange spikey bracelet is one of my favorite purchases, because the leather is so buttery soft and the lady selling it was so nice enough to make it specifically for me, since none of the ones on display fit my small wrist.
The light purple knot bracelet is also special because its made out of silk.
Bought a few lip balms from Topshop for some friends back home as a souvenir. It beats “I love NY” t-shirts
Unfortunately, I was unable to buy any shoes in New York, since I had limited space in my luggage, BUT I got a chance to buy a couple of platforms when I got back home. These are probably my last shoe purchases for the year….(maybe)

You can’t really tell from the lighting, but I fell in love with the color of these shoes. It’s almost like a pastel coral/pink color. The suede fabrication isn’t as soft as I hoped it would be, but you get what you pay for from Steve Madden, I guess. I haven’t worn these out yet, so I’m not sure the comfort level of it. I’m anticipating a lot of blisters and the occasional “limping”.

I’ve worn these out twice so far and I have officially made these my “going out/vegas/drunken debauchery” shoes, because these have been through war, and yet it still keeps its elegant look. I’ve worn these out two nights in a row, and I didn’t feel any throbbing or blistering on my feet the next day. The chunky heel might be the answer to this. These have got to be by far one of the most comfortable shoes I own. I give myself a lot of credit for this one. A great buy if you ask me.
I took advantage this past weekend to check out MOCA’s “Art In the Street” exhibit, since it was the last weekend they were showcasing it.
I made sure to take as many pictures as I could of all the great graffiti arts from a variety of talented street artists. I also made sure to take some shots of my black leather litas as well
The entrance into this amazing 1-2 hr exhibition…
I got in for $5-without a student ID, after persuading the guy at the front that I was still attending college. Never thought I would say this, but Thank you Asian genes for making me look like a youthful 18 yr old fresh out of highschool. I always knew you would come in handy some day.
Below 5 photos are from Banksy, which were one of my favorite artists from the exhibit…and I don’t care how many of you argue about how he never crafts his own artwork anymore. Even if he has his minions go around displaying his stuff, I still think it’s cool.
I can relate to this photo above…seriously, the story of my life. Except, its Mondays for me everyday.
Don’t be fooled. They weren’t real people, just mannequins dressed as one.
Yes, the back of the wall really spells out ‘Corn Bread’
At first glance, I thought it was Madonna… apparently, it was a sketch of another lady that looks just like her. Perhaps her doppleganger.
Ok, call me a little creepy by taking this picture of a random girl’s back, but look at her tattoo. I thought it was SO original. I wonder if its supposed to mean something? Or if it was one of those drunken nights…
LOILA striped “hamburglar” shirt, Zara black messenger purse, H&M skirt, Jeffrey Campbell ‘Lita’ booties
Sometimes we want things that are kind of out of our budget, but have no fear, ladies! I’ve come across some great bargains of shoes that look almost identical to your favorite brands!
