i love dressing up for the holidays and while the perfect dress plays a starring role, finding the perfect pair of shoes is just as essential. i hand-picked a number of holiday shoes — ranging from a majestic pair of velvet stunners from Ralph Lauren to a crackling metallic set from Cynthia Vincent — for you to shimmy and shake your way through every festive celebration.

get yourself one of those for this holiday :)
good day

December is undoubtedly one of my favorite times of the year. With my birthday at the end of it ..., and holiday parties and events looming on the horizon, there are myriad opportunities for celebrating and dressing up. This december, that means putting on vintage sequin tops, velvet dresses, platform wedges, faux fur jackets, and just about anything with a hint of shine or shimmer. (Is is strange that when I go thrifting, I immediately reach for anything with sequins or beads?) These four window displays that I shot last week are ideal for putting me in the mood for wearing festive pieces
glitter platform pumps

floral dress

beaded top

rhinestone shoe  boots



just to name but a few. so diggin these looks.

look i love , cardies and wedge boots

You have from now until the end of the year to look righteous — like this street-snapped cutie — in a seasonally festive sweater, so jump on board and get yourself a cardi pick from Urban Outfitters.i love the oversized fit, and the print is ideal for a stroll through Central Park or a camp night out with your girls . A pair of high-waisted jeans, suede wedge booties, and a satchel bag from Proenza Schouler finish off the rustic equestrian look.

Betrayal: Emotional blogging

It seems everyone has a betrayal story.  three days back, I was at a dinner gathering, and as soon as I described that i was planning to do a blog about betrayal one of this days , one of the guests told me what happened with her landlord.  She and her partner had just moved in to a house on the outskirts of Nairobi. with their retinue of 8 pets -- 4 cats, 2 guinea pigs, and 2 dogs -- when the fires gutted their house.  Though they did get back their security deposit, their landlord refused to return their rent for the 2 1/2 weeks they could no longer live there, and they ended up living with a friend for several days, unable to pull together both the security deposit and the rent for a new place.  Eventually, they were able to find some friends to take their animals, while they moved in with the woman's sister. 

    Was this a betrayal?  They think it was because the landlord, who was fully insured, essentially abandoned them, unconcerned about their fate after the fire.  Eventually, they feel a lawyer or government agency may be able to take on their landlord, so they're hoping for some ultimate justice.  But in the meantime, their landlord's action left them in an even more dire position than they would have been otherwise in the aftermath of the fire.

     Unfortunately, that's the way a betrayal often works.  In the short-term, the betrayer seems to get away with taking advantage.  But in the long-term, their actions often catch up with them, and when they do, they often lose even more.   For justice when she strikes raises a heavy hand; like karma finally catching up at some point in time.
if someone has ever betrayed you just know that ,
karma is a BITCH !
