fabric & leather lust

"Our lives are now mediated through the aesthetics of consumerism, through images so commanding that we imitate their inanimacy and deadness, which have become crucial components of the glamorous woman's stylishness, her photographic remoteness and serenity."-Daniel Harris
There isn't much I wouldn't do to have both of these pieces in my possession.
Even after reading Cute, Quaint, Hungry, and Romantic: The Aesthetics of Consumerism by Daniel Harris I am still a fully addicted consumer. This Isabel Toledo dress and Louboutin's Dillian heels make my head spin. If I were getting married anytime soon I'd certainly chose these two pieces to wear. Unfortunately, I have nothing looming in the distance worth ever shelling out thousands of dollars on these gorgeous bits for.

I know, I need some solid reason to justify those shoes. Nothing yet, but I'll keep you posted.

P.S. I'm hosting my first giveaway! Check it out if you get a chance :)

I would be on my ass in 2 seconds flat if I even attempted to walk in those shoes, but they sure are pretty!
