Instagram Roundup #43

by Jamie Sanford on June 5, 2013

Here are all of the other Instagram Roundups!

Look at the price on these Miu Miu Oxfords, which were featured in my 2012 Birthday Wishlist. I actually gasped when I saw the price, without any sort of dramatic intentions. I was DEVASTATED that they were in the wrong size and already waitlisted.

I’m still exploring new products from the beauty bag I won at Kelly’s Lyme-Aid event. This Body & Boudoir Spray by Naked Princess smells absolutely delicious.

I haven’t used it, but this limited edition Midnight Massage Bar by Lush is shaped like one of Salvador Dali’s melting clocks, and smells divine. My whole linen closet is perfumed.

Wearing Dragon by A England again. I have completely fallen off of the polish obsession, and so now I just want polishes that won’t give me a ton of trouble when I’m applying them. A Englands never let me down. I am contemplating trying to sell off my entire nail polish collection except this brand.

WTF. Police activity at the office on Friday. Apparently there’s a teenage drug ring that needed busting in the little town my office is in.

I got an old 20 the other day. It looks so weird! (Yes, it’s on top of my Spice World DVD. What.)

Fun travel Instagrams in 2 weeks. Next week is a special edition.

2012 Birthday Wishlist

by Jamie Sanford on December 2, 2012

My birthday is coming up soon (December 7th), so here is my fantasy wishlist. My real Amazon wishlist is much more accessible. This one will be about expensive things that I don’t expect anyone to buy me!

I tend to not buy expensive sunglasses, but these are so gorgeous. They are also $290, from Nordstrom.

…except that I just found these for $10.99. Retro City Sunglasses ftw!

Miu Miu Runway Shiny Leather Buckle and Fringe Oxfords – these are on sale for $525 at Saks.

Love the blue and I want to touch the leather. Balenciaga Arena Giant 12 Rose Gold Velo in Bleut, $1,895 at Barney’s.

SO COOL. iPhone speaker doc that uses a vintage gramophone. $422 from ReAcoustic on Etsy.

I have wanted this for years. A pop girl piece by Hulbert Waldroup. A commissioned one would be even better.

Something else I have lusted after for a while. The Lancaster Leather Sofa from Restoration Hardware – the super deep Luxe edition. A mere $4,175.

I love Konstantino jewelry, and definitely would love this London Blue Topaz Crown Ring for $850. Neiman Marcus has a great selection of Konstantino jewelry.

The last item are these Miu Miu jeweled suede platform sandals. Also from Neiman Marcus, for $2100. These are a bit much but they remind me so much of a pair of YSL shoes that I was obsessed with years ago, so I want them.

That’s all – I will be spending a lot less money for my birthday but I intend on having fun which is priceless! Have a good week everyone.

Sights & Sounds: Prada Edition

by Jamie Sanford on August 3, 2012

Sights and Sounds #36

Click here for all of the Sights & Sounds posts!

So, if I had to pick one designer to make my wardrobe, it would have to be Prada.  Over the years, I’ve loved many collections and items, and yet have never owned anything from Prada or the (sort of) diffusion line, Miu Miu, which I’m also obsessed with.

Anyway, I watched the Prada Fall 2012 Runway show live online, and you should watch it now:

Now Prada has released their campaign video for this collection, which is also amazing.

Fabulous, right? Fall is my favorite season for weather, fashion, everything. I can’t wait to get my boots out again, I am over the summer.

Vegas Wedding Shoes, Part 2.

by Jamie Sanford on June 14, 2011

This is part 2 in a series of posts where I search the Neiman Marcus website for potential shoes to wear for my Vegas wedding (actually a vow renewal), coming up later this year.  Click here to see part 1.

Christian Louboutin Maralena Flame Sandal, $2445. These are so the perfect shoes to wear in Las Vegas, they are showgirls in themselves.  However, they are crazy expensive.  Yes, I have a $300 gift card to Neiman Marcus, but I’m pretty certain that I don’t need to spend more than an additional $300 beyond my gift card.  However, this is fantasy shopping, so I will continue.

Christian Louboutin Suede Glitter Platform Sandal, $895. These glitterbomb shoes look a bit weird without a foot in them.  I think they would appear less clunky when they are actually being worn.  The issue with these is that I’m pretty sure I would tower over my husband who is not that much taller than me.  I love them though, the glitter + pink suede is fabulous.

Miu Miu Suede Peep-Toe Mary Jane Pump, $670. These are also tall but the fact that they are more normal-ish makes me think that I would not be TOO tall in them.  Plus, they are so cute and the heel is bigger which means there is less of a chance that I will fall.  I also think that these would go really well with the sort of 60s-ish style idea that I have in my head.  I would definitely be able to wear these after the fact.  They are not as crazy as some of the other shoes, but they are really gorgeous.

Christian Louboutin Glittered Thick Heel Platform Pump, $795. These might be the winner, even though they are totally going beyond the $300 I might have been willing to spend.  I would have to pay $495 + gift card to obtain these purple beauties.  They are tall, but again, the heel isn’t super skinny so that will help.  In addition, they are sparkly and gorgeous but not in a crazy way that will make me unlikely to wear them again.

Opinions are welcome in the comments!

Vegas Wedding Shoes, Part 1.

by Jamie Sanford on June 10, 2011

This is another post in my “planning for Vegas vow renewal” series. I won a gift card to Neiman Marcus a few months ago from Boutiques.com on Twitter, and have been thinking I would use it to buy something fabulous for our trip to Las Vegas.  What other than fun and fabulous shoes would I go to first?

Miu Miu Peep-Toe Suede Bow Pump, $570. These are the most practical of the bunch, I think. I could probably walk around in these for a few hours before switching to flats.

Christian Louboutin Ambertina Bejeweled Sandal, $2395. I think I’ve shown these on the site before, and I think they would look really good in photos.  I cannot imagine I would be traveling anywhere whilst wearing these shoes.  These are shoes that get put on for photos and then removed – they would end up as art on a shelf in my house.

YSL Iconic Platform Sandal, $760. If you subtract the platform height, the heel is only 3 inches, which is totally doable.  These shoes are fabulous but feel like they aren’t quite “Vegas” enough for this situation.

Tabitha Simmons Cutout Lizard Ankle-Wrap Sandal, $1795. These are not friendly to those who don’t eat animal products because these are fully lizard shoes.  The heel is almost 5 inches but is more substantial, which probably means I’d be able to walk in them for a while.  The only thing though is that in comparison to the other shoes, they aren’t nearly as bright.  These strike me more as shoes to wear in New York in the fall with some fabulous tights.  It’s a specific feeling for me.

More potential Vegas wedding shoes coming soon!
