Faux fur, shoe sisters and random sartorial musings

It is the fashion and frank faux fur again, i have decided that faux fur is surprisingly warm, surprisingly bulky (why this is so surprising i am not really sure), looks surprisingly real and finally surprisingly so very soft - thats my random musing on faux fur....

I need Mr - all this self portraiture is a) boring b) i miss Frank c) i cut my shoes out and that really is no good at all.  This of course brings me to my new shoes, me, Tabitha at bourbon and pearls and Giovanna Battaglia are shoe sisters - yep - we have all indulged in Valentino's gorgeous rockstud kitten heel pieces of fabulousness - and their surprising fact - they are sooooo comfortable and surprisingly versatile so there you go 2 surprising facts!  And now fab fact (for me) i got them half price in the Net a P sale preview - well worth a looky i think they made the main sale too.

Have a very good weekend xx


How cute is the bum bag - as it is reversed is it now a tum bag???


Damn the reeds but you can just about make out the shoes below


Fashion and Frank faux fur, Fashion and Frank cashmere trsrs, Valentino rockstud shoes, Christian Louboutin bum/tum bag, Zara cashmere crewneck, Miu Miu Sunnies (why - it was windy - they do after all protect the eye ... )

  1. Oh the feathery ones, they are gorgeous! I wish all of my shoes were that comfy, I'm so tired of wobbling in my other heels.
    It's so cold here that I've barely been out from under my parka, I've gone to wrack and ruin.

  9. You've reawakened the serious show lust I have for those. Comfortable? And half-price? Oh, my little spiky heart is breaking! Love the faux fur too. I'm warming up to it, much better than the stuff back in the day that looked like unwashed Muppets...

  10. I know and i think they may well be a perennial and i so know what you mean about the faux - it is a different thing to behold - seriously difficult to tell the difference and it is all in the difference for me x

  24. You're right about the faux fur being surprisingly warm. I felt like I was being roasted alike in my faux fur gilet. I tried wearing a real rabbit fur jacket and could not stop sneezing. So I guess it's fake all the way :P These Valentinos are definitely statement pieces. Looks amazing! Now, most importantly - your hair. It always look so shiny and glossy in the photos. What do you use?

  25. Yes, just have to get those reeds out the way to see the gorgeous shoes... Arrr! (splash)
