The NEW [Fashion] CEO profile

OMG Shoes! Think your shoe-obsession is getting dangerous? Well, it may be.. BUT you are not alone!  As it turns out, major international retailers are all noting the large demand influx for designer shoes, and the 'designer' labels are growing beyond our general household labels (the Louboutin, YSL, Jimmy Choo, Manolo - usuals).  Consumers are, more than ever, looking for footwear to really speak to them.  Design, novelty and architecture is taking a front seat to labels and allowing for new (covetable, fabulous) brands, to expand from cult-status to household name.  These young labels include: Nicholas Kirkwood, Aperlai, Charlotte Olympia, Alexandre Birman, Tabitha Simmons.   Just when I thought it couldn't get any more severe..

YSL-inspired Mani..

Or is that SL-inspired?? Mmm..I'm not ready to drop the 'Y' just yet! Anyhow, this manicure belongs to Zubaida Jacobs from Butter Hot Shoes -- one of my favorite Middle-Eastern fashion blogs! I love the idea of the matte-black polish with glossy tips: a chic twist on the classic french manicure.   Do you love it?!

Cinderella Story

I think no girl could agree more that it is "all about the shoes" than Cinderella! And now she's got the ultimate (self-proclaimed) Fairy Godfather: Christian Louboutin -- oh the envy!! His latest fairytale pair of red-soled heels are a tribute to this shoe loving princess and her Disney diamond reissue, available on blu-ray in October.   
Only 20 pairs will be produced and the way recipients will be chosen is yet to be revealed.   
'Happily ever after' always begins with the right pair of shoes..

Coveting: Turquoise Drop Earrings

Turquoise jewelry has always been in my top top toppp most worn/shopped/covetted/made list! I love the stone and the color is flattering on most all skin tones.  It is also believed to bring the wearer good luck - total bonus! Anyways, during the last week I've been searching high and low for turquoise drop earrings similar to the ones pictured on Anna Dello Russo (by Santo Spirito 13) and Blake Lively (by Lorraine Schwartz) -- ideally for a reasonable price -- to no avail :( I'm generally a master at hunting down my most wanted list but this one has me stuck for now.  It was definitely easier to find things in New York than in Panama but such is life in the tropics!! The search is on..
