Splurge Factor: Chanel Gabrielle

Boy does Karl make everyone's life impossible.  I mean, throw us a bone would ya and stop making us fall in love with your incredibly adorable handbags with incredibly non-adorable price tags.  The truth is, sometimes you just crave a Gabrielle and decide that hosting dinner parties is over rated. Guests can eat on the floor. Who needs a dining table anyways. A Gabrielle would look just as pretty in an empty dining room. After all, this baby can be worn 7 different ways...

About the Shoes... Oro Rosso

I'm suffering from post nuptial depression so am in desperate need to jump on wedding Wednesday. For those of you not familiar with PND, it's the last stage in the torturous process of wedding planning, and it takes place a few months following your wedding or honeymoon. PND is similar to a sugar crash or the coming down off amphetamines.  Someone coming down from their wedding day high will likely experience one or more of the following symptoms:
- Irritability: pretty much anything that's normal might bug you; for me, it was my dumb bathroom mirror and it's lacking of a tv like the mirrors during my honeymoon, DUH
- Aggressive behavior displays: aggressive Instagram activity behavior, i mean what's the point of getting wedding pictures if you can't share them.
As a way to tackle the symptoms I review one of the 17,000 choices I made in the wedding planning process, my shoes. I have had a serious obsession with rose gold for about twenty years. Pretty much since I was old enough to know what jewelry was, my eyes have wandered to that hue. It's not surprising that Natalie of A Good Affair, took my obsession seriously and went out of her way to find the perfect hues of rose gold designing our special day. So when it came down to me finding a wedding wardrobe essential, achem, my shoes...the following was imperative: height, color, and simplicity.

Socked


I can't decide if my mind is wandering a bit much in questioning this fall's bootie obsession...but I can't help but think that in exactly 3 years I will absolutely loathe the sock booties currently on my wishlist. It seems as sock boots win it this fall but do they also seem like the high heel version of an elf shoe? I mean I could totally see Mrs. Claus wearing the Fendi stretch knit sock boots.
