Guess Who’s Back…

Hello! For those of you who don't know me, I'm Celine- The Shoe Girl. I'm back to blogging after taking over a year and a half off. Wanna know what the heck I've been up to?? Ok, so... last time we spoke I was packing up my shoes and moving to LA (all my old blog posts are linked to this blog if you wanna play catch up). I moved in with my sweet friend Jena in the cutest warmest apartment in the coolest area. I had to downsize my shoe closet to a shoe wall, but it was totally worth it. Jena and I […] Read More

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is my FAVORITE holiday! I love hanging with my family and pigging out. :) I also love the excuse to be cheesy and say what I'm thankful for. Not that I really need one...I'm thankful that I don't have shoes that remind me of a turkey. Sorry Givenchy, you got it all wrong. Or these scary beasts...I am thankful for shoes that use feathers tastefully. Like these by L.A.M.B.But more than that, I'm thankful for my health, my AMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAZING husband, my family and friends (including all of you of course!) and my cutie little puppies that are trying really hard to reach the turkey […] Read More

Christmas Parties: Part Deux

So the second party was my work party! Since it's my dad's company it was held at my parents house, which is always nice. I felt right at home cause, well... I kind of was. (My former home of course)Any-hoo... I always like to use holiday parties as an excuse to dress up and sometimes go over the top. I wore a Betsey Johnson dress and my favorite holiday time shoes- my pretty glittery Louboutins. I attempted my very first up-do and was pleasantly surprised if I do say so myself ;)I got this necklace from that jewelry party I went to last month... Love […] Read More

Thanksgiving (A Week Later)

I went to Kinkos to print out my Betsey Johnson Fall/Winter 2010 presentation for tomorrow's meeting and I borrowed a USB cable to upload these pictures! HahaAnyway- this is what I wore to Thanksgiving last week. Ben and I went to my parent's house and I seriously pigged out! My mom makes the best Thanksgiving dinner of all time, I swear.I dug out some old YSL pumps that I love and need to start wearing again, and I wore a Betsey Johnson dress instead of what I should have worn... sweat pants with extra stretch in the waistband! (dress- Betsey Johnson, shoes/handbag- YSL)Aren't they great?? […] Read More

Deep sadness…

I've gone back and forth on whether or not to write about this, but I think it's a good thing to get feelings out in the open. Plus, I want you all to know why I'm not really in the mood to talk about trivial things right now like shoes or gossip.My best friend's brother passed away on sunday and since then I've been feeling a little bit like a zombie. He and I were in no means close, but he is family to 3 of the most amazing, loving and big-hearted people I've ever been lucky enough to meet. He is and always will […] Read More
