KICK FLIC of the WEEK.

So, the Olympics are in full swing and so are the collaborations, i.e. Adidas x Opening Ceremony. The sneakers are pretty fresh, very different from the typical Adidas Hi Top, which I am always a fan of. The color ways, the floral prints, the Hi Top Samba? Ah hello, I’m a life long soccer player and the Samba has always been a top Adidas fav, but I’ve never seen it as a hi top and I must say ooh la la I’m in love. The clear gum colored, rubber sole is ri-donk-u-lous, love, love, love it long time… plus the added splash of floral print on the classic 3-stripe, wow. 

Thank you, thank you Adidas x Opening Ceremony for such a lovely and unique new look for Adidas, on some classics in some very non traditional versions.

FLAT-tery, will get you EVERYWHERE!

Boom Bam Back at it again, Mista Lova Lova aka Jeffrey Campbell to all ya’ll living on the moon who don’t know who the man is. 

He doeth very little wrong in my little black book of shoes, and the Skulltini is just a lithe reminder ladies of why you need to keep yo’ shoe game TIGHT! Let me repeat… TIIIIGHT!

I always discuss how flats do absolutely nothing for me, literally I’m 5’1 on a good day and I like to keep everything lengthy if you know what I mean. But give me a stud, a gold stud at that with multiples all over and SheRocS says, YUM YUM YUM GIMME SOME!

The red w/gold and black w/gold are obviously my favs, but the white are super dope too… I mean there is always a lil room in the shoe closet for flats right? They barely take up any room at all, so who’s to deny giving them a happy home and warm feet to slip onto every now and then?

Surely not I… surely not I.

BIG KISSES Mr. JC! 

Skulltini  $159.95

WEEKLY SHOE-GASIM

Hello there little lovelies… I must say TOPSHOP is usually pretty on the money for me most of the time and these are just another 3 reasons why I will stay loyal to my little British heart throb. 

The tangerine color is ridiculously bomb, great for summer, awesome transition into fall wardrobe with tights, wool socks, knee highs, etc… as well as the black w/gold and the nude, always great staples for any wardrobe. The ankle strap is just another sexy tidbit, that makes them that much more dope. I mean what kinda girl doesn’t love an ankle strap? Very flirtatious and the style and colors are ones that will last you more than just one season. 

Now hmm… which pair do you buy? One? Or all three? Well, 3 is my favorite number after all… 🙂 🙂 🙂 

BIG SMOOCHIES,

SheRocS

LETITIA METALLIC PEEP SANDALS

To Stuff or Not to Stuff?

UBIQ – Fatima Kitty

  $254.95

I’m not really sure how sold I am on all these stuffed animal so-to-speak sneakers. As my friends, family and fellow blog followers probably know, I am definitely into the more adventurous, colorful, fun side of fashion, but I don’t quite know what to do with these stuffed animal kicks, let alone pay $254.95 for them. 

Love leopard, love pink, actually do like the white and black versions as well, I mean what girl at some point in time hasn’t liked Hello Kitty, or in UBIQ’s case, “Fatima Kitty“… I mean really, don’t lie ladies… this is actually kinda cute.

I think the outfit worn with this would have to be severely toned down and let these be the ‘statement’ pieces… but I feel like they may actually be growing on me. Jeremy Scott obviously the trend setter in this department with Adidas, but others are catching on my friend…who knew our childhood stuffed animal favs and their heads would wind up attached to our feet and rocked as a 2012 fashion accessory?


1/2” platform. Fabric upper and man made sole. Fits small. In between sizes should order up! Size US8 (EU 38) insole measures at 9 3/8 inches or 23.5cm. Each half size is 1/4 inch or 1/2cm difference. 


SHOE-A-CIDE!

Jesus, Mary & Joseph!!! 

These are some hot booties and you know how me and a bootie get down, all puns intended 🙂

I love me a tough, mean bootie, especially in suede and these Cross Heel Boots by Friend of Mine are insanely dope. Just the right tough of flair to give it a very unique look and set them apart from your basic platform bootie. 

I’m in love and may be visiting the Holy Ghost just a little bit more often with these on my feet! I’m feeling the spirit in my “SOLE” baby!!!! 🙂

Hot Damn Oh here we go again!

My, my, my… my, my, my, my, my… ya sure look good tonight… 

Oh ya baby, these are the BOMB RAP SONG! Mr. Jeffrey back at it again with the wedged sneakers… coming correct with these black leather studded joints! 

I might really, deeply LOVE Mr. Campbell + Nasty Gal… how oh how do you keep designing the most insanely dope shoes? I mean what goes on in that fabulous head of yours (and design team) over joys me on so many levels. I thank you always for coming out with the freshest kicks of all kinds in the shoe game right now and now with the sneakers, you’re conquering the best of both worlds.

It’s a wrap people. It’s a frickin wrap.

feelin’ frisky.

I feel pretty, I feel pretty. 

Ladies, I’m sure you ALL will agree, there is nothing like some new fancy pants, or panties in this case. Walking into Victoria’s Secret is like eating Pringles, you can’t buy just one… I wish men had this same obsession… alas I digress…

I’m a little obsessed with under things and these babies by Only Hearts on Dear Fieldbinder are no exception. They are simple, demure, yet totally hot in all the right places. 

Just a little sample of ways to freshen up your skivvies and sex up your ‘under’ style. 

No. 6 – Latest & Greatest Clog Boots.

Ok. So, I am a HUGE Fan of the ladies of No. 6, Morgan Yakus and Karin Bereson. I was walking on 27th street to work one day and this woman ahead of me was wearing the most fab clog boots I had ever seen, similar to below, and I saw that she was walking into my building!! Yay for me, she worked for Mara Hoffman, above my office, (even more yay for me) and I had to stop her. She told me all about the boots, No. 6, the awesome ladies there and I’ve been a fan ever since. 

I definitely would recommend going a 1/2 size + when you buy them though, they run a little snug, but I have never received so many compliments on a pair of clogs! Well, they actually the only ones I’ve ever owned, but you know what I mean. These ladies can create some seriously rockin’ clogs ladies (of all kinds) so get on board the No. 6 train already, because the below are their latest beauties, which will FO SHO be making it onto my Christmas list this year….

Daddy!!! will you buy me these please? lol… 

Vintage collector Morgan Yakus and stylist Karin Bereson have pooled their talents to open No. 6 Store in Little Italy.
