Shoe fever.

May I say, deep down inside, I really am a shoe-aholic. I've been craving over these shoes lately! These are probably the most must-haves on my list, mainly JC shoes :), ever since my Backstage wedges, I'm a loyal fan.

#1, The Topshop Wisteria2 Diamante Wedges.
they are beyond amazing, the wedge for comfort and the beautiful ballerina-esque chiffon to tie up. Pure bliss. <3.

#2, The Jeffrey Campbell Foxy Platform from Nasty Gal Vintage.
They are probably the highest heels i've heard of so far, or am willing to buy..5.5''!! Wow, means i will be 5.9 1/2 inches tall. Heard though these are so comfy in spite of their height. Would look lovely with tights/socks. :)

#3, The JC Lita from Sole Struck.
I've always wanted lace up combat-like boots, and these are an amazing find just for that. Loove the JC platforms so much.

#4, The Jessica Simpson Tito wedge.
Another 5 inch heel, just noticed I really want 5 inch heels, I hope I don't fall in them haha, I'll practice with my current JC's (only 4.75 inches). This is a lovely wedge from Jessica Simpson, and it's a pretty good price, although expensive of course, but its too lovely for words. Love how it wraps around and is leather. 

So, as you can tell, I'm into a lot of neutral and dark colors for shoes, if you saw my starting shoe collection it is just that very color base combo.  One day I will be brave and buy a bright blue or bright red shoe, but until then, I'll be safe and feel confident in these shoes. 
How bout you lovelies? What kind of shoes are you craving for? ;).
Love, KC.

When you're down and troubled, and you need a helping hand, and nothing is going right. Close your eyes and think of me, and soon I will be there:

Hey ain't it good to know that you've got a friend? People can be so cold: They'll hurt you and desert you. They'll take your soul if you let them (oh, but don't you let them).

Does anyone else remember:

"The End". I'm not sure what year it was, but I'm guessing late '70s / early 80's. I don't remember much about it, but I do remember it was pretty funny. I think I watched it at home on a Saturday afternoon. I used to love Saturday afternoon movies.

Puteri Indonesia 2010 Part 6 : Qory and Zizi at Press Con

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

But darlin, you are the only exception.

Green teal American Apparel skirt, Gray American Apparel V-Neck t-shirt, Brown Forever 21 crochet-detailed boots.
After watching Glee last night, this song (altho have already heard it b4) has been on major repeat. I adored watching Brittany S. Pierce and the montage/tribute to the Queen of Pop. So this is what I wore today, although not as hot as yesterday, wanted to wear something flowy and comfy for the semi-hot weather we've been having. I found this skirt at the thrift store in Berkeley, Crossroads, and it was an amazing find for the price! I adore how it isn’t too long or too short, juust right :). Feel classy in it. Paired it w/ my crochet detailed boots from F21 (MY FAVORITE boots ever.) And ran out the house bc was late for class. 

Sigh, i’ve been having so far days of not feeling really great about myself i guess academically and physically :(, I know its not good for me to feel like this, but sometimes I have these days where I feel less confident. Dont worry, I’ll pick myself back up, not giving up.

Until then may I be so inspired by all of your beauty and amazing confidence that it’ll help bring me back up again to where I want to be. :)

Love, KC.

<3 Brittany S. Pierce. Altho my all-time fav glee member is Rachel :).

ALSO! an update. Just saw (sorry super late) :(, but better late than never right? haha, THAT, stylish & lovely blogger Terri awarded me "The Versatile Blogger" award! thank you so much girl, means a lot to be recognized for this blog :), I really appreciate it <3. And again, thank you for everyone for the amaazing support.
