New kid on the block

There is a new kid on the block and this kid’s got the right swagger.

all pictures from THE COVETED

This nascent blog [THE COVETED], proposed to blow up into superblogdom, has been touted as the Selby for your closet. In my opinion, it is still too young/inexperienced to be justly considered a comparable blog to the Selby, but it’s interesting enough for me to add it to my go to blogs during the wee hours of boredom. (scroll down to see what my blog roll looks like)

THE COVETED features a sneak peak into closets of little known fashion darlings (the pr girls, the big time but small name editors, etc). their covet worthy items are juxtaposed against various furnitures and art. It’s up close and personal and you do get a taste of the person behind the clothes which is always nice.

we’ll just have to wait and see if it lives up to the hype.

and now… for sue’s blogroll

Pretty in Pink

The sparse posts can mean two things: 1) my life is utterly uninteresting and there is nothing exciting to share. or 2) my life is so freaking awesome that I can’t bare to set aside the 15 minutes it usually takes me to post my little shorts.

fortunately for me, this time it’s the latter! I’ve taken 2 months off from my regular life, did nothing but indulge myself for the 1st month with getting pampered at home and traveling in europe and am currently in italy spending the 2nd month working as a science teacher for an italian high school!

currently in italy, there is the huge winter saldi equivalent to france’s winter soldes so i’ve been craving and buying lots of goodies. BUT THE IRONY OF IT ALLLLL is that I’m in italy. the land of leather and shoes. and what do i crave?

A PAIR OF OH SO VERY AMERICAN GAP HEELS.
they are part of GAP’s special design editions. They are the perfect, heavenly, dreamy combination of nude, pink, and pointy! I can’t seem to find them anywhere though 😦

so dear shoe fairy,

i know you exist.
could you point me the right direction for finding this pair?

sincerely,

your biggest fan.
