Covets

In between reading about fashion, tie-ins, consumerism and cinema for my grad class, I've had a cup of tea and surfed over a few e-commerce sites. Here are some of the items I covet but likely will only enjoy looking at from afar.

Opening Ceremony par Robert Clegerie velvet heels. At $745, they are a little (or lot) too much for my budget but I am smitten with those straps and soft round toes, not to mention the delicious color. They also come in fucsia. I'm just hoping that somehow a pair in either color in my size goes on deep markdown at some point. Of course, I actually need a pair of Hunter wellies and a pair of shoes in which I can teach...



Rachel Comey Mummer boots. If I could be sure these would fit my wide feet and be comfortable, I'd find a way to get a pair. I could justify the patent leather as rain resistant--or I could try. Green and purple  are two of my favorite colors and I love the pairing. I can dream about wearing these with purple tights.


Rachel Comey dress from Domahoka. I love this fabric so much but, alas, Doris isn't stocking this one in my size. It will be another one to gaze on from afar.

I'm also frustrated that I can't find long sleeved, patterned above the knee dresses. Those were the number one non-Mayle dress item I was seeking this season but it appears that I'm on my own here. I know what I'm looking for but cannot find much that works.

Dallas really needs an indie store like domahoka/totokaelo/frances may. Women overdose on Tory Burch and Louis Vuitton here.

i love, love, love those OC/RC velvet platforms. i tried them on and they run a little small/narrow.

I know! Dallas and Houston are both sadly lacking in independent design boutiques.

I guess I won't be getting the platforms if they run small and narrow as I think they only go up to a size 10 and I'd need an 11. Not that I can see them being available in my price range either. This is when I wish they'd 'inspire' some other shoe designer...
