2013 Holiday Wishlist

by Jamie Sanford on December 9, 2013

Holiday wishlist time! I update my Amazon Wishlist all year long, I think myself very useful for giving everyone at least 50 ideas of things I would like to receive. I am perfectly aware that not everyone wants to buy me a $2000 lens, but that’s why it is a wishlist.

Let’s get going on my 2013 list.

I think there’s always a Konstantino piece on everyone one of my wishlists. I love almost all of the pieces! The styling is just totally for me. This Pave London Blue Topaz ring is available from Neiman Marcus for $850.

BEAST camera. I just bought Will the Sony a77, but of course, my jealousy at his new shiny toy makes me want one too. This the biggest and baddest camera you can get from Sony right now, so I’m putting the a99 on my wishlist. Available from Amazon for $2,798.

The Bambi hat by Celapiu on Etsy. So cute for $45.

Another day, another deer for my home. This silver deer head wall sculpture is on sale for $66.

Black Christmas Tree! I have been mourning the fact that we will not have a tree again this year because we will be traveling, and I’m dreaming ahead to a time when I have a home with more than 1 tree in it. We have a normal tree now, but I have way too many things to fit on the current tree. Maybe I could go black and gold, since I have a LOT of gold stuff for the tree. This particular model is available for $174.95 from Amazon.

These are gorgeous, and Dr Martens! This is Arabella by Dr Martens, available for $407.48 on Amazon.

These are reminiscent of some Prada loafers I’ve wanted in the past. Buckled In by Irregular Choice, $169.95 via Solestruck.

That’s all for now. I could go nuts with adding lots more stuff, but this will do. I reserve the right for a part 2!

Let me know what is in your wishlist in the comments!

Dr. Martens x Swarovski Shoe Party

by Jamie Sanford on April 4, 2012

How had I missed this? Dr. Martens x Swarovski?!  I have professed my love for DMs on this site before, particularly the wingtips I bought when I was about 15. (You definitely want to click that link and check out those shoes by the way, they are busted and amazing.)

So anyway, I finally caught wind of my dream combination of leather and sparkly crystals, so here we go with reviewing the collection and deciding which pair I want the most.

So this is Swarovski 1, and it’s the most basic of the bunch. The upper is made of Italian calf leather and patent leather. The leather looks buttery in the photograph so I have high hopes for it in person. However, I think if I’m going to get anything from this collection, I need them to sparkle. Swarovski 1 is available for $125.

This is better! Swarovski 2 loses the patent leather toe cap, and adds cute little Swarovski crystals sprinkled throughout.

What I think I really want is these shoes, with a toe cap covered in crystals. That would be amazing, since I generally wear my Docs with jeans, and only the toes stick out.

Anyway, Swarovski 2 is available for $275.

Boots! This is some classic Dr. Martens realness with some sparkle thrown in. I love that the crystals are only applied to the strap around the boot, I think it’s unexpected and am wondering if the strap is removable so I can wear is as a bracelet when I’m not wearing those boots.

Swarovski 4 is available for $350.

And now we are getting to the sexier portion of this collection. Swarovski 5 here is like Swarovski 2’s slutty sister.  Swarovski 5 is available for $425.

This is my favorite one! I would only prefer that this be a bootie without ankle coverage, but you can’t get everything you want. I also want to be able to remove that sassy shoe bondagey harness thing and put it over some regular black heels, so it would be helpful if it was removable. Swarovski 6 is available for $325.

So, any interest in the Dr. Martens x Swarovski collection for you? Check them all out here.

Dr Martens Shoe Party

by Jamie Sanford on August 19, 2011

Fall shoe collections are emerging from all over the place, so I’ll be featuring some shoe parties in the next few weeks as I discover more things that I totally want.  Today’s shoe party will be a focus on some new releases from one of my favorites, Dr. Martens.  I am loving that some of the new styles have a more streamlined silhouette, a slight issue I’ve had with some of my other Dr. Martens shoes and boots.

See what I meant about the Dr. Martens style, but more streamlined? Drury by Dr. Martens, $120.

I might have to replace my big mary janes with these instead. Corin by Dr. Martens, $130.

The doctor is serving attitude in these fierce booties. Nevena by Dr. Martens, $170.

Check out all of the women’s new arrivals from Dr. Martens here.

Photos: Doc Martens Wingtips

by Jamie Sanford on April 7, 2010

Yesterday I posted on The Daily Wishlist about Dr. Martens shoes and boots.  I mentioned there that I have a pair of Docs that I bought somewhere in 1994-1995, and I still wear them.

So I decided to write about my shoes here, but once I photographed the shoes, I became way more interested in the photos, because I love them.  My Docs are busted!  They are scratched up and have actual dust on them.  If you can’t tell, I don’t wear them that often, but I DO wear them.  I wore those shoes to countless concerts, on a certain “rugged” camping adventure in the late 90s, and recently, on nights out with my friend David.

Enough chatter, let’s get to the photos.

Dr Martens Shoes & Boots

by Jamie Sanford on April 5, 2010

I saw some Dr Martens online the other day (they have been around for 50 years!) and since I have the same pair I’ve had since I was 14/15 (and still wear them), I had to write a post about them.

From the “about” page on the Dr Martens website, this is such an accurate representation of how Docs took over: By the mid-1990s, Dr Martens had festered in the minds of youth without a single penny of ‘marketing spend’, longer than the majority of global brands had even existed. There is no comparison. This is not a brand, it is a way of thinking, a mode of expression.

So here we go. I am super jealous of people who don’t have to go hunting for Dr Martens anymore, they are just available on Amazon.  I don’t need to have rich parents to score a trip to Europe to get awesome multi-color boots (I went to school with a girl who DID get that trip to Europe and never thought she was cool enough to wear those Docs).

Dr Martens Women’s 5026 Mary Jane in Black Tartan Plaid, $64.99 – $69.99.

Dr Martens Men’s Adrian Tassle Loafer Tassel Loafers, $139.45.

These are so Elvis! Dr Martens Women’s 1461 Oxford, $90.95.
