At last! My own Jeffrey Campbells

How long have I been lusting after some Jeffrey Campbell shoes?

Well, as far as this blog is concerned, since this post. But the seed was planted way earlier.

And yesterday, I am finally united with my own lovies!!

Here I will unveil to you my spoils that I hunted down from Free People.

I am a huge sucker for packaging. When a brand pays extra attention to details it always tugs at my heart strings.

As I top off the top, I am greeted by this cute comic strip.

I can see that the prize is neatly protected by wax paper.

I am more than delighted as I pulled my Chandlers out on top.

Excited! I wore her with my outfit yesterday.

She adds an undeniable edge to a soft outfit. The lace like detail on top ties in nicely to a romantic feeling outfit. But it's not too girly since it's an ankle loafer.

My next beauty has been THE shoe I was coveting! The amazing Jeffrey Campbell Lita! (or Ophelia as found on the Free People website)

It comes in this beautiful pink box adorned with this cute graphic of a cat sweater! Cats were probably my very first unhealthy obsession.

As I opened the box breathlessly, I see them encased in their individual protective dust bags.

She is so beautiful.

But there's more to the box yet!

Of course it can! Look at the actual shoes!

I could not wait another minute and had to put them on!

The suede is amazingly soft, smells oh so intoxicating.

Best yet, they are COMFORTABLE!!!

This settles it, I must get them in EVERY COLOUR!

Rouge and Fur: Ruffle Peplum Peacoat

Inexplicably in love with the colour palate of the 2011 Fall trends.

Fall 2011 Trends

Red is a powerful colour, this dominant shade represents both passionate love and violent warfare. It demands attention. A statement colour that can either enhance or over power.

I am glad to see designers embracing this vixen of a colour again. What is even more amazing? Fur is also back.

I think that combination is the near perfect marriage.

And for me, this is how that marriage manifested itself.

The best part of this coat is the detachable fur collar. Offering flexibility and versatility.

But I will most likely never wear it without that fantastic embellishment.
