Knockoff Ninja #54 - Giuseppe Zanotti Star Sandal

Giuseppe Zanotti "Star Sandal" in Black Suede available at Neiman Marcus ($2,495.00), Saks Fifth Avenue ($2,495.00), Bergdorf Goodman ($2,495.00), Forzieri ($2,495.00), Luisa Via Roma ($2,569.44)

Liliana "Afragola-25" in Black Suede available at Make Me Chic ($42.90), UrbanOG ($44.20), Go Jane ($57.90)

I adore these! Can you say no to these at a tiny fraction of GZ's cost? I don't think so! Not to mention Liliana's version is bound to be WAY more comfy what with the decent-sized platform (and I know from experience the brand cranks out great quality shoes).

Happy shoe shopping!

Music Monday #65 - Phantogram

You guys remember how obsessed I was with Phantogram back in early 2012, right? Well, last week I won tickets to their sold out show at Showbox at the Market by way of a giveaway through their record label. I was so freaking ecstatic! So last Thursday I rounded up my friend Trevor and we proceeded to get drunk in various... interesting bars in Post Alley and then stumbled up to the Showbox for a fucking badass show. It was so amazing. I can't even begin to tell you. Wish I had more money at the time to have purchased their new EP on vinyl, but oh well. I'll be checking Ebay for it ;)

Wednesday, October 16, 2013


1. Iron Fist "Skull It Out" in Black ($79.99 $59.99)
2. Betsey Johnson "Leana" in Pewter Metal ($109.99 $82.49)
3. ZiGiny "Suspend" in Black ($274.99 $206.24)
4. Penny Loves Kenny "Andrea" in Olive Micro ($114.99 $86.24)
5. Report "Aydin" in Brown ($79.99 $59.99)

Happy shoe shopping!

Knockoff Ninja #53 - London Trash "Ceres"

London Trash "Ceres" in Pink Pony available at Runway Shoetique ($74.99), Heels ($139.99), Bakers ($142.99)
Qupid "Ravish-08" in Raspberry available at Make Me Chic ($33.10), Go Jane ($34.80)

These are okay. I'm not terribly excited about them, but the knockoff well is a bit dry right now. The heel isn't as high, nor the platform, and the color is off. What bugged me in the first place about the Ceres was the lack of a concealed platform in such a pricey shoe, which is also the case with the Ravish-08 (minus the price). Hmmmm.

What do you think? Grab it, or skip it?

Knockoff Ninja #52 - Privileged "Denmark"

Now, this Knockoff Ninja is weird, because I have no idea which one of these came first, and this has happened before with Privileged's "Drama" and Steve Madden's "Dubstep". I saw a preview of the black pair on Privileged's Instagram and immediately after, a picture of the green ones on Steve Madden's IG. So it's not a "Knockoff Ninja" per se, but a post giving you a ton of options! Enjoy!

Privileged "Denmark" in Teal available at Shiekh Shoes ($97.99), Make Me Chic ($98.00), Zooshoo ($98.00), Dr. Jay's ($98.00), UrbanOG ($98.00), Go Jane ($98.80), Shopakira ($98.90), Heels ($99.99)

Steve Madden "Shana" in Green Multi available at Steve Madden ($129.95)

IDENTICAL. Anyone know what the deal is, here? Literally, the only difference is the zipper color. I feel like there's some sort of double agent designer in the shoe world right now, lol. Is Jennifer Chou moonlighting at Steve Madden? The Privileged version can't be considered a dupe because the price point is so similar. In any case, I'm having a real issue not buying these right now. RIGHT NOW. I just might. They are literally my perfect shoe; tall as f*$%, strappy, corseted and full of mermaid-y goodness. (P.S. The Denmark runs a half size small!)

Are these the best shoes you've ever seen, or are they not? If not, come here so I can slap you :P

Happy shoe shopping!

EDIT: Aaaaaannnnndddd, I bought 'em. 20% off with RED20 at Go Jane! Expect a review next week :D

Things & Stuff...

Wow, I can't believe it's been a month since I've posted...

I'm finally starting to come to grips with the fact that I'm going through some shit, internally. It took a bad dream Saturday night (the first dream I'd had in weeks) about my Grandma Judy literally telling me, "You're depressed, honey," and giving me a huge hug while I cried. Ugh. I can't even figure it out for myself? Lol.

As some of you know, I started taking a generic of Celexa for major depression and anxiety almost a year ago, with a TON of success. About ten months later, and 30 mg more per day, it's starting to fail me. I knew this would happen. I didn't expect this stuff to change my life forever, but it's easy to fall into that kind of thinking when it's worked so well for so long. I started to notice extreme fatigue (more than usual, for those of you who know me IRL), my trichotillomania is out of control and I'm drinking about 5 out of every 7 nights. I eat past the point of being full. My housecleaning is falling behind. I'm normally super obsessive about that. These are all deadringers for depression and anxiety for me. The weirdest part? I don't feel depressed. I know it's the medication, but I am so afraid to come off of it. I missed a few days last month due to my refills running out and my regular nurse practitioner moving away. The withdrawal symptoms were terrifying, to say the least.

I know I need to go back to counseling. It just started to get so expensive, because I really feel that I need it at least twice monthly to get any kind of result. So I'm in a pickle. Ughhhh. I don't want to go crazy, but I don't want to run us into debt, either. I feel pretty lost at the moment :c

So yeah, that's where I'm at right now. Haven't been doing too much in the way of shoe-scouting or anything like that. Just kinda trying to hold it together.

I don't wanna be a downer, either, I just don't want to leave everybody hanging. I love you guys, and I hope you stick around for when stuff gets better <3

Knockoff Ninja #51 - Jeffrey Campbell "Coltrane" pt. 2!

Jeffrey Campbell "Coltrane" in Black Distressed available at Farfetch ($161.60), Jildor Shoes ($180.00), Karmaloop ($184.00), Nasty Gal ($185.00), Nordstrom ($199.95)

Qupid "Valiant" in Black available at Tilly's ($39.99), Make Me Chic ($40.50), Go Jane ($43.20)

Also available in Oxblood at UrbanOG and Go Jane!

Looks like I spoke too soon! About a week after my first post on the creeper Coltrane dupes, THESE CAME OUT. GAH! I'm still eyeballing them, and have been for weeks. But now that I have the creeper version in black, I don't know whether I should get the Oxblood or the black! CONUNDRUM!

What do you guys think? I'm dying, here!

Sorry about the extended absence! Trying to get my bloggy butt in gear, been busy with other stuff :D
