A new pair of shoes at Irregular Choice

A while back, I bought the Irregular Choice Flashing Lights boots in the retro orange, red and green colour scheme. Although I’m pretty good in platforms and wedges, I’m kind of a wuss when it comes to these boots. Walking around my bedroom, I realized that there was absolutely no way I’d ever be able to get very far in them, so I (very sadly) returned them. Now I have a $300 credit to their Soho outpost and unsure of what to get. I want something simple, maybe a pair of flats to wear to work, or a cute pair of their silver boots that would totally work day to evening. Too many choices! First up, the boots that I returned. I’m kind of regretting my decision, as those boots are cuter then anything else they sell, but, I know that they would have just ended up sitting in my closet.

Irregular Choice 11| Womens | Flats | Simps-1I love the little architectural irregular dome heel, and the muted tones.

Irregular Choice1 | Womens | Boot | LexiconThe heel is tiny, so the boots are perfect for running around Manhattan.

Love the pink color.

Brooklyn Love: Georgia Varidakis

I really love jewelry and I also really love Brooklyn, so finding local, amazing designers always makes me happy. Georgia Varidakis makes really cool pieces in everything from brass to sterling silver and gold. My favorites are definitely the claw necklaces and bunny heads. She’s a permanent fixture at Artists & Fleas in Williamsburg, but if you’re not in Brooklyn on the weekends, you can order from her site. ring in Sterling silver

You Bought Your Holiday Gifts, Now What?

A Guide To Gift Wrapping

So you’ve finished buying all of your holiday gifts but they’re just sitting in the corner of your bedroom/livingroom/hallway waiting to be wrapped. You can go the usual route, and just buy some green or red tissue paper, some snowman or santa gift bags, or some happy holidays wrapping paper and call it a day, or you can do something just a little more special. I’ll admit, although I usually try to do something cool, after wrapping each gift with hello kitty wrapping paper for hours, I end up beat and then just write each person’s name in sharpie. However, I think this year I’m really going to put some effort into my gifts, and with these cute ideas, it really won’t be too hard.
