Sneak Peek: Carmakoma AW 2012

Ooooohhhh…do I have something special for you ladies! It’s a VIP SNEAK PEEK into Carmakoma’s AW 2012 collection!! If you’re anything like me and you love a classic clean look with an edgy and sexy twist, then this collection is for you. I’m DYING over the leather leggings! Seriously HOT! OK, you know I love something if I’m using all caps over here.

Carmakoma is a Danish label if you’re wondering, yes all the way from Copenhagen. I especially love them because they’re using my good friend Fluvia Lacerda in their recent campaigns.

“Carmakoma women are strong, independent individuals denying to be subject to the opinions of others. They are not afraid of experimenting with their personal form of expression, but are open to change and always heading towards new experiences – determined to control their own destiny.” -Carmakoma.com

This collection rocks with these amazing wrap skirts, polka dots and stripes, bold pieces, graphic prints, flowy pieces, and the leather leggings…oh the leather leggings!  They also have outerwear and menswear-inspired pieces. I can see myself wearing pretty much everything here.

This collection should be available online and in-store in August and their sizes range from U.S. 12-24.

I want to know what you think!

Will Carmakoma be on your shopping wish list?

The Shopping Diaries: Why so many shoes?

You’re in the shoe department and you see a pair that screams your name. What do you do? Do you run and hide? Or do you gravitate toward them like you’re being pulled in by their imaginary forces? Does your brain start calculating if you can afford them?

This is what I deal with every time I see a pair of shoes I want. About 90% of the time I’ll end up buying them. But, the minute I come home I’m dreading my husband’s favorite shoe catchphrase…”Why do you need so many shoes?”
Grrrrr…that annoys me.

Of course I can think of a lot of reasons why I need more shoes. I tend to go with…”Babe, I don’t have a basic black pump! The ones I have are so old and uncomfortable!” I really do think I come up with the best answers, but he just shakes his head and walks away.

Doesn’t he understand the need to have pretty shoes on my feet? Why don’t some people realize that styles and trends change? A girl needs options. And if they are on sale and they’re cute, that’s a double bonus! I can’t pass them up.

Hopefully one day he’ll understand why I love shoes. Until then, let the shoe shopping continue…

Do You Dare? Part II

“Do you Dare?” is back shoe junkies!

I love shoes…you all know that. But, sometimes we come across some questionable styles and patterns. Are they trend setting or a big mistake on the designers part?

Some might say they are a work of art, while others will call them tragic!

The Levon Platform $198 (left) comes from Free People and could be classified as creative and daring??

We know designers are quirky, but are their designs worthy enough to put on your feet?

So, what do you say? Do you dare to wear these shoes below? Or are they too boring for you?
