Confessions Of a Shoe-A-Holic Tag!

There is a Tag that has been going around Youtube, and I just really wanted to do it! I know it's weird doing Tag videos in blog form, but I don't make videos, and I really want to do the tags that go around!
By the way, I tag all of you to do it!

The Questions:
1. Heels or Flats?
2. What are your go-to shoes?
3. What's your favorite shoe trend at-the-moment?
4. What's your least favorite shoe trend?
5. What's your most expensive shoe?
6. What are your most wanted pair?
7. What's your most embarrassing shoe story?
8. Pick a shoe and share a story. (I did not do this question because it was too similar to the previous question!)
9. How many pairs of shoes do you own?
10. When was the first time you wore heels?
11. How much do you spend on shoes?
12. Where are your favorite places to buy shoes?
13. Do you have a pair of shoes you regret purchasing?
14. What are your favorite pair of shoes?

My Answers!
1. Flats all the way! So much either to walk in than heels, and come in a lot of styles!
2. My go-to shows are my lo pro vans. Comfortable, maybe not fashionable, but I usually just throw them on.
3. My favorite shoe trend is probably any shoe that's "Cognac" colored, or tan/brown. I know this probably isn't a trend, but I like (most) shoes that are that color. My favorite shoe trends tend to change every week though! Here's an example of the cognac color (in the picture they look ugly, but in really life, they look so cute on!):

4. My least favorite shoe trend is probably the awkward platform. This is what I mean:
5. My most expensive pair of shoes would probably be my Steve Madden flats, which were about $80. They're really cute though! Here they are:

6. I'm guessing this question means what pair of shoes I want the most. My dream pair of shoes would probably be a pair of Tory Butch flats, but those are so expensive and our of my price range! 
7. I don't have man embarrassing shoe stories, really. Most of my embarrassing stories don't relate to my shoes :)
8. There aren't many stories related to my shoes, but there is this one pair of shoes (my lo pro vans) that I've had for a while. They have been everywhere. I've worn them in different countries, I've climbed in them on tall mountains, and I have worn them for our summer vacations. Unfortunately though, they are just now starting to get worn out.
9. haha, i don't know!
10. Probably a year or two ago (14-15 years old?). It was for a concert, but they were only like 1-2 inch heels. Nothing too much.
11. It really varies, but I do like to get shoes that I know will last me a while.
12. Probably Nordstrom BP. All their shoes ares really cute!
13. I don't think so. I always buy things if I know I will like them :). 
14. Probably either my Toms or my sandals for the summer, but in the winter, just my lo pro vans, because they are comfortable for school.

Winter Fashion Must-Haves 2012!

Here are some of my personal winter fashion must-haves

Winter Fashion 2012

1. One accessory that every girl needs in the winter is a chunky scarf. Whether it is solid or patterned, a chunky scarf is something that will keep you warm and make any outfit look more put together
2. Gold and Brass Bracelets are often in style in the winter. Layering bracelets makes an outfit more personal or "you". Gold ascents brown clothing items and accessories real well.
3. Polka Dot/Chiffon Tees, or more like polka dot anything are in this winter. The polka dot shirt shown from nordstrom  BP is perfect for winter. It's classy, fun, and looks perfect with a pair of black jeans!
4. Something that was in last year and is back this winter are sweater dresses! Paired with tights and boots or flats, it's warm, yet cute! This one shown is from nordstrom BP.
5. Rose Gold Watches were in during the fall, and are still in for the winter! They are so cute yet sophisticated. Looks cute when paired with a 3/4 length blazer. The one shown is from Marc by Marc Jacobs, but you can find similar ones at Forever 21 and Target.
6. A pair of Riding Boots are cute and warm! Pair them with a pair of black skinny jeans and that polka dot shirt, and you have the perfect winter outfit that you can wear anywear! You can find riding boots almost everywhere, from Forever 21, to Target, to Nordstrom.
7. An accessory that has been in for a while are Small Cross Body Bags. I like this one shown, because it has a beat-up look, perfect for winter.
8. Long Necklaces are prefect when paired with a plain sweater. They just add more to the outfit and can make the outfit more "you".
9. "Shark-bite" sweaters are in this winter. They had a nice twist to a simple sweater. The one shown is from nordstrom BP. Pair with a cute belt and skinny jeans, and you have the perfect outfit!
10. Black Skinny Jeans are a nice change from the usual blue jeans and are in this winter. They are slimming and they make any outfit look more put together! Pair with a lose top or sweater and flats, and you're good to go!

(haha, sorry, but I didn't realize that everything was from Nordstrom until I finished this post. You can find similar items at stores like H&M and Target.)

Pan Am: Kate's Simple Pretty Look

I was watching Pan Am and when I saw this outfit, it immediately became one of my favorites!

Dress: This dress is a modern twist to the one Kate was wearing above. And the bows on the back adds a nice girly touch. It may be hard to find a dress similar to the one above now, but in the summertime, I know Forever 21 and Nordstrom BP sells dresses similar to that one.

Brooch: Here's a brooch similar to the gold one Kate was wearing.

Belt: Here Kate is wearing a cream colored belt, dark enough to stand out from the white dress.
Here's a white belt close to the one she is wearing.

If you want to dress it done a little bit, add a tan belt, so it looks more casual but has the same feel.

Earrings: Kate during that episode was wearing a pair of pearl earrings. You can just about find fake pearl earrings anywhere.

Shoes: Here, Kate is wearing a pair pointy tan/brown heels, what looks like suede heels. Here are some shoes that look similar.
GUESS 'Gessica' Pump, on sale now for $50

To dress down the outfit, pair it with a pair of tan flats. These flats alone would tone down the white dress and cream colored belt.

Bag: Kate's bag was white with a tan flap. Here's some bags close to the one she's holding.

Red Lips Without Lipstick?

I know that sometimes getting red lips can be a hassle, so some good alternatives to red lip stick would be lipgloss and lip stains. They are easy to apply and reapply! Apply a lipstain with a lipgloss or one or the other by itself to get that pretty red lip look!


Bath and Body works lipgloss in "Cherry Gelato"
Bath and Body Works lipgloss in "Cherry Gelato", $7.50
This Bath and Body works lipgloss in "Cherry Gelato" is what I use for a quick, shiny, red lip. I may appear to have a lot of glitter, but when on, the glitter only shows up a little bit.

Bath and Body Works lipgloss in "Magenta Mint"
Bath and Body Works lipgloss in "Magenta Mint"
This lipgloss is a opaque red color, perfect for on the go.

NARS lip gloss in "Place Vendome"

NARS lip gloss in "Place Vendome"
Swatch of NARS lipgloss
If you watch missglamorazzi's videos, you know that she uses this lip gloss to create that red lip, without being so dramatic.

Lip Stains

Maybelline color sensational lip stain in "Cherry Pop"
Maybelline color sensational lip stain in "Cherry Pop"
A deep red color. A perfect alternative to red lipstick.

Stila Convertible Lip Stain in "Cherry Crush"
Gives you a true red lip color, but color doesn't pop as much. This is good for people who don't like that dramatic red lip.

I hope this was helpful!
