Shoes – FalalalalalalalaLOVE!

Day 7 of reversecommuter’s 12 Days of Christmas Party Outfits (or Holiday Party Outfits if that floats your PC boat) is allllllll about shoes.  WEEEEEEEEEEEEE!


Ode to the Spectator

Saint Laurent’s Lace-Up Saddle Pump (on sale fyi!!) -pair this puppy up with a french stocking and a slit skirt (aka Day 5 on reversecommuter’s 12 Days of Christmas Party Outfits) and Santa will be one happy red suited elf!


Tassels, really need I say more?

Charlotte Olympia’s Fantastic Dolly Suede Fan Tassel Pump is a phenomenally fun shoe – what says party season better?


Oh, yeah, Ostrich Feathers.  That is what says Party Season Better.  Click here for a review of all things plummagey.  Or just click here to buy your own divine Sophia Webster Nicole Sandals.


Fringe is another relative of the flirty dangly-bits family and needs to be in the party wardrobe this season!  Aquazzura makes a sexy beast of a shoe any day of the week, so add a fringe and mistletoe Ho-Ho-Ho!!!!!!!


10 Things I LOVE about TOM FORD

reversecommuter has a SERIOUS man crush.

It’s nothing new, ever since Tom Ford was the lead designer for Gucci, I have had a mad love for this sexy talented gorgeous man.

Update, Gucci is happy with Frida Giannini – as are a lot of Gucci clients (me included).

So #1 was his Gucci role.  #2 is his lipstick – seriously how can you pull out any other tube. LUXURIOUS.

#3 is his eyewear.  Julianne Moore was quoted in a recent Elle Decor as saying his reading glasses were one of the things she could not live without.  (click the blue to read).  I am right there with that uber fab red head, and I don’t even wear reading glasses, yet…but that doesn’t mean I can’t stock pile a pair or two!


#4 would be the black booties carried at Bergdorf.  BE-YOND.   Salivate for yourself, click here.


#5 – #10 are from his current Collection.  Specifically looks # 7, 10, 12, 13 & 16.

I cannot pull the pictures from his website (oh, Tom, maybe we can work on sharing a little?)  but click here in a  comfy chair and be prepared to salivate!  Leopard, leather, tassels, rich delicious purples, patterns that literally vibrate with movement, sequins and lace and make up OH MY!!!!!!!!
