Not quite something of use…

The Barneys sale (Madison Ave) … is still too expensive for this dievca~
Everything she wanted to buy calculated out around $700 -$800: Tate earrings or a ring. Marni sweater, Manolo Blahnik pumps, Zero Maria Cornejo coat. But nothing special enough to pull the trigger – as dievca’s friend said, “If these Louboutin boots were $450-$500, I would do it”.

So, nothing of use – but at least she got back to the store before it was gone.

dievca moved away from Barneys when they rebranded the Co-op in 2013, ‘sidelined’ Simon Doonan – and seemed like they lost their sense of humor. When they closed the UWS location? Ah, well….no reason to schlep across the City.

Here are some of the items dievca considered at the sale:

dievca doesn’t see Master in these boots:

Maybe these ones instead:

Stunning – Leather is Back with a Vengence

It’s not just about the classic bomber anymore. Leather in all shapes and forms is making its way to Street Style snaps around the World. Take a look in your closet and see if there is leather lurking in the back corner. Air it out, condition it and if it’s got an 80’s vibe – rock it.
If there isn’t a leather piece to be had — take a look at the following for inspiration:

The touch of a Butterfly~

Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp,
but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.     

Nathaniel Hawthorne

Sophia Webster designed her first pair of ‘Chiara’ sandals in Spring ’14 and the distinctive style is still included in an edit every season. This year’s versions include smooth leather, satin, patent leather or embroidery, set on a slim stiletto heel. The signature 3D butterfly wings at the back have a design that continues to the base of the shoe.
