When it comes to thigh high boots, I’ve always had trouble finding a pair with the perfect fit. So every year when fall rolls around, I’d find myself searching for that perfect over-the-knees boots….but search no more because I think I found my sole mate! Perfect heel height, perfect comfort level with hidden platform, perfect soft suede, perfect little laced up in the back so I can loosen or tighten for the perfect thigh high fit!

Funny short story: When I was trying these boots on, I casually mentioned to the sales associate that I’ve always had problems finding the right OTK boots because I have thick legs and thighs. She immediately disagreed (eyes-wided, lips-frowned and all) and told me I do not have big legs and I shouldn’t worry…as though it was a bad thing…I wasn’t fishing for a compliment and I think she was nice, but it makes me sad to see that even nice people can get influenced to believe that being healthy and having meat on their bones is considered a bad thing…It gets worst. She then told me that having skinny legs will look better in high heels, skirts and boots. I can’t help but laugh and I tried not to be offended because she was really, really older and I guess she just had an ancient way of thinking.

Luckily I’m kind of stuck in my own ways of thinking and told her actually thick legs are pretty damn sexy in heels, skirts and boots. :) How many young women who may already be suffering from body issues are put in situations like these each day to not like their bodies just because someone thinks their body parts are not the perfect fit for a certain style or trend? This brought me back to my post about Body Image and the Mean Girls...I have more to say, but I’ll leave it here for now since it’s 4AM and I’m feeling sorta loopy. xo

Have you ever had a shopping experience where someone either intentionally or unintentionally made awkward comments about weights and sizes? I love to hear your stories!

I’ve been meaning to wear these perfectly crochet neon shorts all summer and finally decided to take it out to play before the weather gets cold. Speaking of cold, I feel the air getting a little more crisp and the wind a bit more chilly in the evenings. I don’t know about you but I’ll be in some deep pooh when the weather gets cold. Everything I have seems to be shorts, skirts and more shorts. I guess it’s time to figure out what items I need to invest in for fall… Can’t summer just last forever?

Well at least it’s Friday! Don’t work too hard! :) xo

I think love isn’t about expecting material things or having to go out to a five star restaurant, but it’s about the “little details” and spending that special time together, every day and all year long. Don’t get me wrong, I fancy flowers & things, and can chow down on a filet, but I’m even happier when surprised on a random day and eat at a restaurant where prices aren’t tripled and we’re not forced into a 10-course meal. As a matter of fact, I think I want some Popeyes for dinner tonight…yummmmm.

…lol. Whatever you do, let today be a reminder that love is free and to keep doing special things for those who love you whether it’s Feb 14th or June 8th, and show love not only to your significant other, but to parents, children, siblings, close friends, and your pets too. :) I hope you are having a wonderful day! xo

We all live in a world where colors affect us in our every day lives. How we decorate our office, our home, and one thing in particular, what we wear. There’s no denying that colors and moods are inextricably linked and influence how we feel… Slip on a red dress and you instantly feel sexy or pop open a yellow umbrella on a gloomy day and some of that sunniness will undoubtedly rub off on you.

Today was a gloomy day but this turquoise sandals by Sam Edelman did the trick to brighten up my day. Whether it’s shoes, a bag, a necklace, or just red nails & bright lips, colors play an important role in my wardrobe. Black and white is lovely and a true classic but our world would be dull without a P.O.C. (pop of color).

I was first introduced to Edelman’s shoes via the Lorissa and Scarlett spike pumps. They are fierce but due to the contrast between 5 inch heels and very little to no support in the front (no platform), the balancing act was quite difficult. I felt like a little girl putting on my mom’s heels again and by the end of the night, my feet was a swollen hot mess! Disappointed that such beautiful shoes are unwearable, I sent a letter to Mr. Edelman asking to please incorporate more platforms. When i stumble upon these new turquoise beauties with platform, you can only imagine my joy. Thank you Sam Edelman, I am a now a huge fan!

If you can brave the extremely high-heel vs. low-platform balancing act, these lovelies are edgy and can be used as a weapon on those creeps at the bar (wink).
