Making Statements

What accessory or item of clothing do you have that is a “statement piece”?
None? Several?
I quickly went looking for statement pieces today because I woke up with this desire to drool over some Christian Louboutin shoes.

I went straight to Neiman Marcus for some quick and easy finds. I found these fabulous earrings that are so unique and so beautiful…but so out of my price range for something that small. Plus I refuse to buy myself jewelry over a few hundred dollars…that’s my husband’s job. MCL by Matthew Campbell Laurenza Enamel Drop Earrings

A bit more in a non-stomach churning price range? How about these ABS by Allen Schwartz Teardrop Earrings, $95.00. Not quite the equivalent in “statement” but still a brilliant design.

On to shoes!!!

Spring reigns with Louboutin’s amazing new line this season. Several statement pieces. This Dillon Pump, $2875 at Nieman Marcus. Made with natural python (sorry, can’t ship to California) with a fabulous ruffle and nearly 5 inch heel.
Of course the signature red sole.
And this is spring 09 collection so you’d be pre-ordering with a ship date around 4/17.

A bit more simple and not so “statement” is this Triple Plateform sandal. Choose bone or black patent calf leather. Stacked heel reaches 5.5 inches. $1,095 at Nieman Marcus.

Seriously, I bought a black pair so similar to this at DSW for about $50. (shown in brown). Ok, slightly different, but in a more attainable price range for most women I know. They are comfortable too. Thought I’d recommend inserting the Printz pads from Apara.

Happy shopping (or drooling).
Need to go dig some quarters out from under the seats in the mini van and in the laundry – gotta add to mommy’s shopping fund for a new statement item!
