All That Glitters Friday: Metallic Shoes That Shine



(Images: via Refinery29)

If I can see my reflection in one of these shoes, I would so use it as a mirror, in case of emergency of course, seriously! Kidding aside, the future doesn’t have to be dark & dreary. Look towards a bright new year with these metallic mirrored shoes to add a touch of futuristic shine to any outfit. Check out the images above or click the link to see more options. I hope you all have a fabulous New Year & look forward to a brighter future to come! 😉

Storm Thorgerson

Storm Thorgerson is undoubtedly the man who made album covers a veritable artistic force. Working with bands like Pink Floyd (who gave him his start),Biffy Clyro, The Mars Volta, Muse, & so many more, Thorgerson himself is as legendary as the musicians whose work he visually interprets—and for good reason. A master of his craft, he continues to leave both bands’ and fans’ mouths aghast with his visually arresting pictorials, which creatively toe the line between fantasy and reality.

Blue Hour Photographs From Around the World

One of the best times to photograph outside is during the golden hour, or when we get the first and last hours of sunlight. If you’d like to capture more stunning and magical photos, however, try and catch the blue hour (or twilight), the window of time in the morning that begins minutes before sunrise or the period in the evening after the sun has set (and before complete darkness). Click the image above or the link below to see more blue hour photos.

Style Inspiration: Rose Gold

I love this color combination of rose gold inspired outfit. Get the look:

  • Calypso St. Barth Faliero Sarti scarf
  • Lord And Taylor Effy Collection brown diamond flower ring
  • Disel jeans navy bleu
  • Alberto Fermani braided suade knee boots
  • Topshop knitted fleck dress
  • 1928 Jewelry parfait flower rose gold drop earrings

Style Inspiration: Spring Forward With Short-Shorts

Even though it’s still winter right now & freezing cold out, I look forward to try on this really cute outfit that’s perfect for the spring season. The best way to wear short-shorts is that your top-half should be covered up to balance the look. Get the look:

  • Ann Taylor silk georgette petal top
  • Banana Republic heritage mesh trim cardigan
  • Urban Outfitters shorts
  • J Crew super skinny leather belt in gold
  • Chloe paraty bag in rosewood

Playlist Love: The Motto By Drake Feat. Lil Wayne & Tyga

“I’m in the building and I’m feeling myself/ Rest in peace Mac Dre, I’mma do this for the Bay,” Drake says on “The Motto,” an ode to working hard — a quality still thankfully associated with this region’s independent rap scene.

I read about this earlier today & I just had to post the music video. This song is one of my favorite from his ‘Take Care’ album, & for Drake to do his music video here in the Bay Area got me even more excited!
