Lately I've been pairing Doc Martens gold-and-pewter metallic brogues with everything--which is fine by me.
Today I ran across a potential spring pair of Docs--these Joyce lace-ups.
I tend not to wear novelty shoes, and I wouldn't don these in the two weeks surrounding Valentine's, but otherwise I'd wear them in, you guessed it: a heartbeat.

It just needs to be worn / styled properly.
The Rockettes' reaction to the "ingenue" trying to infiltrate their sartorial ranks:
And re: the symbolic pussy-head buttons . . .
Can anyone say "copycat"?

boots the other evening and thought I would share them.
Many are floral, in keeping with the Rose Bowl Week, as it feels like chez moi.
These boots are by Valentino, and are embellished with embroidered flowers.
And these non-floral rain boots are by Rag and Bone;
these winter boots are from Santana (from Canada);
and these rain boots are from Aigle.

And, in an appropriate coincidence for Rose Bowl Monday, I embellished my fireplace with a garland of white paper roses (it's either that or hand-made Liberty bunting [by me], which was up all fall).
I also added my Christmas gift from Mr. C, which is this antique oil miniature of a Gibson Girl.
I actually wore a version of this hair a year ago, while performing in Mary Poppins. This photo is just before "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious," and my poufs have flattened a bit. But not my Puff Sleeves, which any PEIslander knows are essential.
The hair plus the outrageous puffs remind me of the Anne of Green Gables video, when Anne is reciting "The Highwayman."
And it also reminds me of the AGG musical, for which I worked front-of-house one summer on PEI. There's a memorable moment after Anne accidentally dyes her hair green, cuts it off, and conceals the cut under a large hair band. Anne is terribly self-conscious and concerned about what people will say, but when her bosom friend Diana sees her, she squeals "Anne . . . your HAIR! You've PUT IT UP!!!!" And all is right in the world.

Interested readers can explore Kate's website, but I'll share my two favorites here:
the top-hat bag:
and my new iphone case:
The bunny-ear applique is on dove-grey leather, which doesn't show up so well in this photo. When you open it up, like a book, your phone appears, as if by magic.
Wishing every reader tonight a very Happy New Ears Eve!

A favourite is from the Italian company Herno, pictured right, avec pussy bow, and below, sans:
Even though I've seen this jacket worn over a short sleeve, I don't recommend it, as the effect is a bit too Julia Roberts in Eat, Pray, Love, aka not a flattering length/look.
Moncler has a version, too:
And there's a less pricey one at Kohl's, as well:
My editing pencil stets them all.
