The List of Stylish Songs

June 16, 2006 at 4:00 pm by Designer Ella

Madonna - Material Girl
I’m trying to create an iTunes/iPod playlist of stylish mp3s, but I only have 5 songs so far! Oh, no! So I’d like to ask fellow fashionistas to list their favorite songs with fashion names, themes of shopping, et cetera.

Circle-Wrapped Straw-Heel Pumps

Donald Pliner Sportique ecru suede straw-heel 'Norma' pumps

Straw, straw, straw. Yes, I give in to the seasonal craze. I love it when used differently (as well as the usual ways). On this pump by Donald Pliner Sportique, the straw is wrapped around the heel in strips. The next best detail is the tooled leather trim on the side of the heel, creating a ladylike silhouette for this round-toe pump.

This kid suede shoe has a 2 ¾ heel height and sells on Bluefly for $81. Most sizes remain.

My Treasure

June 16, 2006 at 12:00 am by Designer Ella

Those Spicy Sewing Divas are posting their results for their Carnivale round tomorrow, even though we have another on Monday to write for. Oi!

Their question was very difficult, so I took my time with this:

Each of us has memories, sometimes tender, sometimes not, of particular garments or accessories that evoke strong feelings and attachments. So this weeks Carnivale of the Couture topic is “Ritual Cloth” - tell us about your special item, the story behind it and why it transcends mere fashion for you.

Of course, I needed some time to think about my reply, but things popped up on me in the last days. It’s bad to put things off. But my item of answer was something long put off, but finally given to me with love.

Gold Shoe Necklace with DiamondsMy perfect little treasure is not old, weathered, passed down or super expensive. It is a necklace my best friend bought me just this Christmas. It was my first piece of jewelry at the high quality of gold with diamonds. It’s a shoe: he knows me; he means a lot to me; and it means a lot to me.

It’s not even exactly my staple, as I treasure and save it for special occasions. But in my closet of superficial, this is something more.
