madewell.

oh dear, i’m in trouble now.

i’ve already been very good at visiting my favorite stores at the [houston] galleria in moderation, but on what was supposed to be a quick drop to make a return, i discovered that madewell had finally opened their galleria location. crap. in the end, i think i showed considerable restraint, ending up at home with these babies…

le smoking…

…slippers.

finally some love for the ladies – i recently whet my appetite for some stylish, menswear-inspired but practical footwear by way of rachel roy (via nordstrom).

foot in mouth.

i can’t believe i haven’t posted about this shoe company sooner.

i first discovered stubbs and wooton about three years ago. i instantly fell in love with the old-school vibe of their velvet slippers and loafers; they conjured an image of silk pajamas, a pipe, and a highback chair, without the hefner-esque camp. you can buy a pre-designed pair or go bespoke, aka made-to-order: fabric type and color, piping color, design, crest, and of course, monograms. yessir, a pair can set you back somewhere between $400.00 – $700.00… would you like your initials embroidered in a colored cotton thread, in silver wire, or 18kt gold wire? tough choice.

the ladies.

the gents.

ah, humor. (most pre-fab designs are available for both men & women.)

seriously, more shoes.

my good friends and frequent readers most likely know that i have somewhere around 100 pairs of shoes… and maybe more.

(honestly, i stopped counting after 100, so i suppose that’s a safe assumption.)

however, this fact has done little to deter me from continuing to acquire shoes. it does make me a more selective customer, but it hasn’t stopped me completely – i mean, i do almost exclusively (90%+) buy vintage! in any case, here are my two most recent shoe buys…

pink leather charles david mules & vintage leopard print pumps.

know how you can tell when someone drives a stick shift? yup.

dead giveaway.

atalanta weller.

holy huaraches.

being a fond wearer and avid collector of shoes, i’ve definitely been impressed with what atalanta weller‘s churned out.

upgrade!

woo-hoo!

just got everything set up and running with my new desktop! this is a totally new experience for me, having used only laptops since junior year of high school. now to just do some catching up...

while in austin, i bought yet another pair of minnetonkas. i cannot push these enough – durable, classic, and comfortable.

minnetonka madness.

also, jimmy just had a birthday – friends gathered for dinner in chinatown, where an impressive check-splitting took place.
