Fluffs, Puffs, and Tufts

Holla out to one of this Fall's biggest trends, shoes with pops of fur. I love the cozy, soft feeling of shoes with furry accents, and as it gets colder, I may just snag a pair (faux for me, of course). Shoes with the real thing cost more than my rent, but it's oh-so fun to look and drool.

Everyone's doing it - Fendi, Jimmy Choo, Roger Vivier and all of those shoe geniuses. The trend is so warm and friendly seeming, like my little furry cat or a chenille blanket. Just tell me you don't want to hold these flats up to your face right now and snuggle.

And I saved my favorite for last - the Taylor bootie by Isabel Marant. I want to throw on some opaque black tights, a grey shift sweater dress, and these amazing black and white fur and leather booties, and hit the town. If only they came in hot pink!
Don't have thousands of dollars to spare??? Have no fear! These booties from Aldo are on sale right now for $89.98 and aren't a bad runner up. What do you think?
Vanderau Bootie by Aldo, $89.95
Faxon Heel by Jimmy Choo, $1195.00
Mink Fur Pump by Fendi, $1150.00
Taylor Bootie by Isabel Marant, $1505.00

Perfection, Just Perfection, I Say!

She's done it again, ladies and... well just ladies! Not only has Natalie Portman been quite possibly the most beautiful Hollywood actress since, well, ever. But she's also the face of Dior. This isn't news. I've seen her in ads holding that iconic bow-topped bottle for months and she's not pregnant in any of them, as she is now. But every time I open up a new Elle or InStyle, I get wowed again by her perfection. 

But she's not the only perfection you will see in these ads. The styling and photography is impeccable. It's simple, clean, ultra girly, and... perfection! Tonight I came across quite possibly my favorite. Check out this dress! It looks like layers of blossom petals upon petals. The ombre effect, leading up the white top, is just icing on the cake - and it sort of looks like it. I'm in love with this dress. Doe anyone know who made it? Dare I say, Dior?  ;)

I just felt like the blog needed some girly girl beauty today. Some good ol' fashioned, pretty!
