Pointy Toes Are Back?!

I am so excited!!!!!!! Pointy toes are back! Flipping through the new ELLE, and there they were sexy, vampy, pointy pumps staring back at me.

For me they never left. I absolutely love pointy toe shoes. Always have, always will. There is something so seductive and sexy about them.

Ladies they make our feet appear slimmer than what they really are. Who doesn't love anything slimming?  Pointy toe stilettos can take any outfit from sad to sexy in seconds. Think Angelina Jolie and Erica Kane. Extra vampy - all you need are red lips. There is something so powerful about the pointy shoes and I'm not sure why. I always feel so strong and assertive in them.

Here's some of my picks for Fall's sexy, seductive, vampy pointy toe trend:




Shoes from top left to bottom right: Kate Spade Lily Suede Pump, Charles David Loge Pump, Stuart Weitzman Naughty Pump, Guess Carrie Stiletto, Lovely People Piper Bootie, Loeffler Randall Electra Cut-Out Bootie, Nine West Digger Bootie, Nine West Maribella Slingback, Enzo Angiolini Jumble Pump, Luxury Rebel Nathalie, MIA Hepburn Skimmer

Vouge 8647 (Cavalli)

Vouge 8647 (Cavalli)

I've been M.I.A. for a while. Between vacation and Summer, I haven't been updating like I should.

Well, I'm back with a review of Vouge 8647 and Just Cavalli Fabric.

I love this dress! I think the color may be a little off for my taste but I like the look of the dress. The pattern was super easy (even for me) and quick to make.

I bought the Just Cavalli fabric from Mood Designer Fabric here in NYC. It is a cotton and lycra blend. The fabric was $20/yd and my first designer fabric ever. I obsessed over cutting it for at least a month or so. The fabric is perfect for draping as it moves so nicely. It looks great at any angle and has lots of flow to it.

I wore this dress out to dinner with Mom for her birthday. She liked it so much, I might have to make one for her.

It feels so good to be back!
