The shoot I styled for
Coutorture in NYC a couple of weeks ago went live yesterday morning!! The story for the spread was a Fall 08 trend feature modern vs. vintage. I selected 5 Fall trends: menswear inspired, bold shapes, winter florals, luxe fabrics, and country living and presented a head to toe modern look vs. a head to toe vintage look. We had ten different looks that included ten different hair and make-up changes...it was bananas!Here are a few more behind the scenes
shots. See the full feature in all it's glory here!

What Happens in Vegas...Day 1

Ok, so this is really what happened on my way to Vegas. Drove down yesterday and made a stop in Bakersfield to do a little hunting. I had hoped for slutty/trashy heels and boots a la "Wild Pair", I'm real, it is Bakersfield...more farm town than fashion mecca. Well at some point their lived a fashionable lady with sophisticated taste for fine and sexy Italian shoes in this town. I am not mad at that at all!!! Wish she was an 8.5/9 but I can't have it all now can I. A couple of other random finds in the mix as well...Celine scarf, totally random ;)

The Goods Have Landed.

Me and The Goods! landed into NY Wednesday morning. After a connecting flight in The LBC and a red-eye into JFK, it only made sense that I posted at the wrong baggage claim (thinking I had taken a direct flight form OAK as normal). Waiting, waiting, waiting for my goods and nothing. So I start to walk to the claims office to see what was up and there where my goods, at a different baggage claim chilling. I'm in the NYCity for two weeks. Holler!

Ransackin' Sac Town.

Last week was a bizzy one!!! Headed down to L.A. for four days and then spent the weekend in Sacramento shopping and catching up with a few friends. The booty was in full effect mode! I hit about 15 spots and some secret appointments. Here are some of the highlights visiting Cali's Capitol.

Photobucket

A couple of highlights...First up, I stalked a pair of these boots on eBay earlier this year. They weren't my size, I just adored the design and was sad when I missed the auction. We'll their they where at Goodwill waiting for me...Still not my size but whatever...
Photobucket

So, as the day goes on I stumble upon these...OMG!!! How random. My thoughts are that the upon booties are the cheapy knock-off version of this below Via Spiga style. Crazier things have happened but this was kinda crazy. AND these are my size...YES!!! And I have the high heal version already...and, and, and.
Photobucket

And someday I hope to find these in my size!! This is the second time these Zodiac boots have come into my life. First time was a 7 and these are about 10-11 and deadstock...jazzy loafer meets boot dressed in pink...so hot.

Some random shots from the day...

I wanted to but I just couldn't...

If you can't read this it says "Liz's Pirate Ship". Yeah, that's not my car. Someone needs to tell "Liz" that there's only room for one pirate in this town ;)

M.I.S.S. August: Snakers Sneakers

It's the first of the month and time to introduce M.I.S.S.'s August Playmate of the month. This month we are featuring a vintage throw back from the 80's, Snakers. I can't find anything on these sneakers...I found about 5 pairs of them in Pasadena earlier this year, they come in a high-top version and low top version...slightly reminiscent of the Reebok Freestyle. Whatever, you can't deny how awesome they are. Download the calender and desktop here.
