Fashionista Finds – Friday Fun ;)

Posted in artwork, fashionista finds, fashionista food, shoes by fashionista514 on August 29, 2009
Alright… here are a few of the things that I discovered today…

First up… Bubble Tea! Today I discovered that there are other options other than just the tapioca bubbles that usually make up the classic recipe… you can add mango stars for god’s sake!!! What the eff! You know the world is getting better when you can drink star shaped mango fruit with fresh peach or watermelon/green tea juice… mmmmm mmmmm good!!!

Oh lookie what I found… an Ed Hardy motor home!!! If this isn’t the coolest shiznack EVER than I don’t know what is… this mobile home is badass ;p

The John Varvatos store inside Holts!!! New and amazing! I love the interior of this little section within the store… the old record sleeve framed artwork and the simplisticly cool peices that is John Varvatos… if you haven’t already seen Varvatos collaboration with converse, I sincerely suggest you check it out here

Alright… passed by the Louboutin store and quite honestly… fell in love. These shoes have been haunting me since the two of us looked each other in the eye and knew we were meant for each other (the cheetah print ones)… I will be heading back tomorrow to try them if I feel like being especially cruel to my bank account…

This shop is a slice of heaven… Louboutin, Authentic French perfumes and chandelles and Italian fashion and ballet flats (Repetto below)… what is not to love???

If you get a chance to come to Montreal… please do check out de la Montagne street… It is LACED with goodies like these 😉

Have a beautiful weekend everyone 😉

Blog Adoration – Sea Of Shoes

Posted in blogger, shoes by fashionista514 on July 12, 2009

Okay, so I know that I am TOTALLY the last one to know… however I just stumbled upon the marvelously enchanting “Sea Of Shoes” blog and am in a state of complete envy 😉… nothing malicious… I play fair… 😉

The absolutely GORGEOUS Jane Aldridge and her mom are tried tested and true FASHIONISTAS! If I may say so myself… both of their styles are utterly impeccable! I am not the only one to notice either… Sea of Shoes has an insane following from all around the world and has been featured in Teen Vogue, recognized by Kanye West and Holt Renfrew department stores (my faaaave), and Urban Outfitters even collaborated with Miss Jane to design a collection of shoes inspired by her eccentric and sophisticated style!

Miss Jane’s trendy mama (above)

Jane claims that her fashion identity is based upon her love and collection of shoes… beautiful, wearable works of art 😉 Rockin‘ out in Anne Demeuleester laced bootie sandals, BalenciagaGivenchy zipper open toe booties, and YSL caged sandals… patent platforms, well… THAT is definitely living, functional ART!

Jane and her mom have just returned from an exciting Tokyo adventure – and let me just say this: The posts are TO DIE FOR! Capturing the very allure, culture and experiences of Tokyo… she transforms her vacation into a magical and enchanting endeavor… Oh, and of course mingles with the stylin‘ locals 😉

The mother-daughter duo seem to have quite complimentary styles and lend and borrow pieces from each other – always making the look their own… effortless… casual… trendy but avantgardethey remain ahead of the curb in every sense and leave us waiting to see what they will snatch up next…

The greatest thing about her blog in my opinion is that she captures not only her personal fashion loves, but also her exquisite lifestyle in larger than life professionally presented pics… She gives a full visual representation of everything beautiful… everything interesting.

God DAMN I am in love with these YSL sandals…

Whoever says fashion is only for the vain, OBVIOUSLY never possessed a pair of these conversation-starter “stick-heel” strappy sandals… highly intellectual… 😉

Amongst the beautiful eye candy heels, Jane mixes and matches thrift shop finds with current season trends and pairs them with some sick “in your face” accessories that through their exotic allure bring out the regal look she carries off oh-so-well.

How funky fresh is this look… like seriously… could this girl get any cooler….? Could she…???… nah!!! Didn’t think so!

Ummmmm…. MAJOR girl crush brewing here…

She is a master mix-ologist!!! Mixing beautiful unseeming pieces together to create alarming and demurely fascinating looks and moods… all in a days work 😉

OMG… when I saw her Chanel booties I almost DIED!!!

A fearless modern fashion ICON who is not afraid to take risks to reap the rewards… of personal creative growth… LOVE HER!

Please check her out… Impossible to regret!
