I really had to give these wedges the 3 times over. First of all I was looking closely on the side where the straps are attached to the shoe itself. I was trying to see how the straps are attached to the shoe. It's a well made shoe so it gets my vote! Stylish too!

I have yet to find a "Maxi Dress" that I just completely lose my sanity over. So I'm on this sort of quest this year to look at all the "Maxi Dresses" I can see for some inspiration. The design is going to have to be unique, stylish, and artsy. I've been looking for a while now. It' time to get serious though because Lexie's Fashion Show is coming up real soon!

Phillip Lim
"Print Halter Dress"
Available at Neiman Marcus

The initial draw to these shoes was one of curiosity. I knew they weren't Louboutin's right away but that didn't stop my curiosity. Then I found out they were on sale and I had to know whose they were!

Alexander McQueen
"Corsage Vinyl Sandals"
Available at Outnet

I was looking for my bracelet that resembles this one. I'm really tired of looking so I just began my search on-line and this is the closest I've come so far. Don't you just hate it when you have to buy something twice?

I spied this dress on sale at E-Luxury. I also saw it on sale in another place but E-Luxury has the better price.

Sexy, sexy, sexsay!!! Put this on and it won't even matter if you go near the water or not! See how it's pulled in at the waist, cut right above the thigh? Wondering where you've seen that cut lately? Try Beyonce aka Sasha Fierce-Single Ladies Video. That kind of cut literally guarantees you a shape even if you don't have one! After all, it' the visual we are going for isn't it ladies?!!!

Come on now, tell me that even a person taking sewing 101 couldn't make this! Believe me that person could. Almost with their eyes closed. It's not that difficult. But if you're just not inclined to you can go to Revolve and pay to much $$$ for it!

An Over-Abundance Of Alligator Skins

The Cut's, Amy Odell is reporting that Louisiana is being overrun with Alligators since no one wants to make handbags with them anymore. Let's journey to Louisiana to see how the recession has affected a small, oft-overlooked sector of the luxury industry: alligator farms. Gerald Savoie Jr. has over 60,000 alligators on his farm, but no one to sell them to. “This is the worst I’ve ever seen,” Savoie told Houma Today. “It’s never been this bad. Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Versace, they’re not buying. And if they’re not buying, we’re not selling.” The alligator business is a $60 million industry in Louisiana. Luxist reports that Vermilion Gator Farms Inc. generally sells 75,000 hides a year, but it hasn't sold a single skin in a year and expects to not sell a skin for a year on top of that. Alligators: the recession's cats.

Alligator skins are used for things like bags, belts, and shoes. But things made of alligator are expensive, so no one's buying them anymore. So PETA should be happy right? Wrong. Their hides are already on the market collecting dust. Last month 840,000 tanned hides were on the market in the U.S., waiting to be sold to tanners. Normally there are just 275,000 on the market. But if these farms won't make any sales for another whole year, now would be a great time for PETA to stage a great rescue mission and start a Clarissa Explains It All–inspired campaign to get the nation to take them in as pets.

Things that make you go hhmmm!

If you aren't the type of girl who is afraid of polk-a-dots this shirt would be a cute addition your wardrobe.

"Harlequin Shirt"

Go ahead PETA say what you want because I refuse to be apologetic for something I like. And I LIKE these wedges, snake skin and all! Incidentally, the shoes name, "Anouket," sounds just like "Anuket," who was an Egyptian Goddess. The name "Anuket" literally means "Embracer." So yeah, PETA! I'm embracing all of this shoe because it has all the sexy mystic of the Egyptian Goddess it appears to be named after. And well we Goddesses are a peculiar bunch!

Now that's a classic! Simple, yet elegant styling. You can wear it with or without the strap.
