Hey Glossy Ones,
This Monday’s edition is inspired by items I saw in one of the recent Neiman Marcus catalogs (the title on the cover is “Accessorize Me”). Once I went to the site to pull pics, I came across other items that begged to be posted.
Luxury is defined as “a material object, service, etc., conducive to sumptuous living, usually a delicacy, elegance, or refinement of living rather than a necessity.” I’m a “key word” kind of lady, so the key word for me in that definition is necessity. In essence, luxury could mean unnecessary. For some of us, a shoe is a shoe is a shoe, and that’s great.
Keeping in mind “Counting Up The Cost,” my motto = You Have To Treat Yourself Sometime! Not all the time, but sometime. Everything in moderation!
The-Dream (who wrote “Umbrella,” “Bed,” and “Just Fine”) is no longer behind the scenes. Is your name mentioned in “Shawty Is A Ten?” Even if it’s not, you’re still a 10! Check out the remix featuring R. Kelly on The-Dream’s MySpace page. Also check out his song “Falsetto” – it will most likely be his next single.
I heard you last week Jam Bella! Here is Guy’s “Let’s Chill.” “From the first time I saw your face, Girl I knew I had to have you.” – I LOVE that line!
LIFE OF LUXURY
Here are my shoe and purse picks from Neiman Marcus.
This Christian Louboutin “Speechio Very Prive Pump” is fire! I love the covered platform and although the highest heel in my collection is four inches, I am inclined to give these 4.75 inch bad boys a try.
There is nothing sweeter than a matching shoe/purse combo. I love the buckles on the Miu Miu “Stretch Ballet Flat” and on the Miu Miu “Pleated Leather Hobo.” The hobo is pictured from a side angle in the catalog and it shows three buckles on each side of the shoulder strip and it has “Miu Miu” embroidered on the side of the bag.
I LOVE this glossy Prada “Vernice Bowler.” I love the shape, the colors, everything. The matching shoe is cute (click the link above to view), but a matching pump would have been great.
Once again, I came to a hard decision – which color to post? The black and brown Gucci “Bonnie Mid Heel Platform Pump” can do no wrong in either color.
The Burberry print was always a little too busy for me, but I love the splash of color it brings to this boot. The Burberry “Check-Trim Leather Boot” is supa dupa fly!
Finally, I love the simple, classic but modern look of Kate Spade’s “Small Carla Hobo.”
I hope Tonex returns to the music industry soon! Here is “Make Me Over,” one of my faves.
Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. ~~~Psalm 51:10
Have A Wonderful Week!
