A ‘brutal polar vortex cold enough to take your breath away!?’ Al Roker isn’t joking when it comes to the super chill factor today on the East Coast, so bundle up. There’s been a burst of unseasonably mild snow-free sunny days here in Switzerland. And back in Nor-Cal, in need of rain, the dried up lakes are starting to resemble the Las Vegas desert. Well, that concludes the weather; now onto fashion.
We spent the first Friday of 2014 chilling out ourselves making home-made Italian style pizza. Actually, he made it and I tossed on some Galbani Mozzarella balls before it hit the oven. On our Saturday night out; I wore one of my all fave retro styles – 70’s glam! I love gold accessories or as I’d say in German – ‘Ich Liebe Gold!’ I highly recommend the look for a date, night out, or an easy style solution for an upcoming January holiday party. Here’s my ‘American fashion blogger’ meets ‘American Hustle’ style. Plus, now that SJP is introducing her new line of heels at Nordstrom, I’m curious if you think designer heels really worth it?

Are Designer Heels Really Worth It? ~ After finally organizing my wardrobe so my husband would stop calling me a ‘hoarder’- a term he just learned last summer thanks to American TV; I lined up my mini collection of designer heels. I realized that not only do I take better care of them, i.e. (avoiding scuffs at all costs), I keep them forever. Plus, they often get the most compliments as they instantly dress up any basic H&M or Zara dress.
Tips to buying designer footwear – 1. Check Outlets & online legit sites 2. Buy off season for nearly 75% discounts (like the ones in this post) 3. Look for styles that are classic and not super trendy so you can wear season after season. 4. Always use the little dust bags to keep them safe when traveling. 5. Designer heels might be genuine leather, but they still need to be comfortable and the right height or you’ll never wear them. Take a stroll or two around the store.
What do you think – are you more likely to splurge on heels or handbags?
