Black leather. I’ve been loving The Wing Leather Harness over on Zana’s [Garbage Dress] Etsy page. I think it would look great with the Elizabeth shoes by Bakers and the Event Bat, found at The Pleasure Chest.

I still think it is insane that everything in fashion these days looks like it has been lifted from a recent Belladonna production. I’m not complaining, having a greater selection is a treat but it is still so puzzling.

Harness $140, Shoes $99.95, Event Bat $29.95

My new Dolce Vita “Lace Heels” came in the mail today.  Coming home to a package is pure joy, even if you already know what’s in the box. They have a  pretty relaxed fit and the 5″ heel is a good addition to my height.  The site says the shoes fit “true to size” but I think they run a little big – a tip if you’re interested in buying them.  My mom mentioned the other day that she didn’t think I needed another pair of black heels.  This coming from the woman who has a closet full of them.  Projecting much?

Did you notice my white fur?  I wanted to include that after yesterday’s post.

Black + gold is my favorite color combination.  If you looked at my rack of clothes, you would see waves of black, gold, gray, and camel.  Here are my lastest additions to the collection as seen on me!

This Fall, great shoes are lining stores from Third Street to the Glendale Galleria.  I truly cannot believe how many marvelously stylish shoes are out there right now, and plenty under $200.  [Don’t get me started on the $695 Dries Van Noten’s I am keeping my eye on.]  I picked these up over the weekend, and I couldn’t help think of a conversation a friend and I had about our love of the marriage of black and brown.  Keep them coming!

One of the things I keep in mind when I go shopping is WWCD – What would Carine [Roitfeld] do?  When I have this mantra, it is easy to steer clear from shoe disasters and regretable unflattering skirts.  She has consisitently worn the best shoes in the world and always before you see them on anyone else.  Yes, she has the benefit of being the editor of Paris Vogue, but she never gets it wrong.  Thank you for your non-stop inspiration Carine.
