Posts Tagged ‘high heels’

Check out these adorable heels from Streetzie’s High Heel Bunny Slippers ! It’s like wearing a stuffed bunny on your feet. It’s like wearing bunny slippers, but only high heel. It’s like having a furry friend cuddle your toes. You get the idea… They come in 4 colors of powder blue, black , white and of course, PINK! I had to order a pair to go with my hello kitty ensembles (because you can never have enough pinky cuteness). They are actually very comfy and the heels aren’t hoochie high, so that’s good. And no bunnies were harmed in making these, although somewhere a 3 year old girl is weeping about her beheaded stuffed bunnies. So, if you see a crazy lady in a hello kitty skirt, unicorn necklace, bows in in her hair and pink bunny high heel slippers chances are it’s me. Be sure to say hi.

The Heel Condom is probably the most simple way to class up a pair of heels. That is if your definition of classy is a leopard leotard with matching fingerless opera length gloves. No! Some of the designs are actually ok. Puerto Rican designer  Sandrysabel Ortiz (picture her with a margarita in hand  and  wearing a marabou robe from the latest Forplay catalog) designed these clever contraptions to dress up any boring pair of heels. They make even the cheapest heels, well… even cheaper. Kidding! Go to the site, ignore the  The Nanny-inspired music on the site, and get yourself a pair!

If you have a pair of old ‘Ho’ shoes laying around and it doesn’t reek too bad of feet and cheap perfume, then this might be a brilliant DIY project! Or you can let  Giddy Spinster do the honors. Nothing says elegant and nature lover like a stiletto planter. Grow your own personal cactus plant in a defunct stiletto to remind you of your heydays an untouchable female….

So, really, this sounds like a cool idea only if the cactus plants were rosemary because I would perch that sh*t right on the kitchen counter. Call me demure.

Check out the other works of Giddy Spinster including a mascara wand art piece, blow dryer and bookends. Just as long as you don’t mind the smell of feet, I suppose.

The illustrious Hasty and Jacques Torres

Hasty Torres and me

Nestled in the heart of Beverly Hills lies a magical boutique selling everything chocolate! Madame Chocolat is an enchanted chocolate boutique owned and run by Hasty Torres, wife of chocolate wizard Jacques Torres. Each of Hasty’s chocolate creations are delectable and beautiful than the other. Coming in all shapes, sizes and flavors, chocolates are produced in small batches for every occasion and holiday. For Bastille Day, chocolate Eiffel Tower ranging from small to large were produced in honor of the French celebration. Solid or hollow chocolate high heels, handbags, sunglasses, watches, cigars, and almost everything in between are available for any sweet tooth. Not only are the shapes impressive, but the flavors are unique in its own. Over 21 variations of white, dark and milk chocolate, including a Grand Marnier-infused ganache, fresh raspberry ganache, champagne ganache (known as the ‘Champagne Kiss” *swoon*) exist in this lovely chocolate heaven. The extreme attention to detail of the packaging, the product itself, and the gorgeous French 16th century decor give even Fauchon and Lenotre a run for its money. Even the massive chandelier has the Madame Chocolat logo hanging throughout the chandelier.That’s damn exquisite, if you ask me.

Hasty was gracious to let us into her factory and showed us the process of making haute chocolate. The chocolate is constantly churning to keep from hardening and is ready for impromptu drizzles or a full-fledged production of bon-bons and truffles. Each chocolate takes at least two days to make! After sampling a bunch of chocolates, I left the store with a smile on my face, a sense of luxury( I was channeling Mr. Marmar) and a major sugar high. ( Not sure if that’s the best combo for driving-hahaha). Be sure to try some of your favorite childhood candies and cookies dipped in chocolate, like Cheerios, Oreos, Rice Krispies and of course, marshmallow s’mores. Madame Chocolat not only serves chocolates, but also ice cream, tea, coffee, iced drinks, croissants and cookies.  Custom orders are available and nationwide shipping is available. Be sure to say, Haaaaaaaay‘ to the lovely Hasty for me- she’s a doll!

This is pretty cool if you want to scare the crap out of a guy that’s bothering you. You just flash your heels and they’ll probably give you the ‘crazy b*tch’ look and walk away. Back when I used to take the bus to NYC on the lovely Greyhound Express, I used to flash my mace to any shady characters in my path. It was in a holster and everything. People backed the eff up. I have a feeling these shoes would do the job, too. I like how the heels are uneven so if you step on someone’s face, the shortest heel just dangles all gangster like and says, “What?”. But in all seriousness, this kinda sucks if you’re walking on say the grass or cobblestones. It gets stuck three times, except once. Having said that, I’ll take a pair.

Galliano has done it again! I love horses and horseback riding and stuff and this collection totally reflects on the old-timey times of horseback riding. Let me put it more eloquently and not like I’m smacking gum bubbles (it’s cherry flavored) while twirling my hair. Galliano delivers a classic clean collection with feminine frocks and horseback riding ensembles from the turn of the prior century and 1930s. So, yeah, I’d totally wear this. Anyway, I have been horseback riding several times in my life and I LOVE it. I do have to say the first time I went, I wore high heels (please don’t laugh). I didn’t know you can really hurt a horse with high heels. Let’s just say the horse owner was giving me the side-eye the whole time. Anyway, Galliano rules!
