While I normally don't go for over the top shoes, these have captured me. They're Tyler by Richard Tyler and they're going for 96 dollars at Bluefly. Damian thinks they're freaky, but he would still go out with me if I wore them. :P I think the heel is a little too chunky, but all in all, I like the mish mash, the clash of baubles and croc and chunk.

This is another thing that's caught my eye. I have two Eiffel Tower necklaces (bought in Paris!), but this one is just fantastic. While I'm not crazy over the Swaroski-covered Tower, I think the tiny tower and the Amour pendant are just chic. While this comes in silver, and usually I go for silver, there's something about the gold version of the necklace that just looks right. I really like this. The only thing that gets me is that it's 40 dollars! I know it's costume jewelry, but still.

And, finally, these flats by Steve Madden. They are so cute and even though it's cold (for me), they are just wonderful with dark jeans or with a light skirt or dress during the summer. They have these in Target (but in a navy patent leather version), but these are the ones I want. I have a Dorothy complex with shoes, I've always wanted a pair of red flats. We'll see if I pick these up.

There's one thing I haven't talked about that's been going on in my head lately, and it's the fact that I was diagnosed with OCD, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. I know that mentioning this after having a moment of fashion frivolity is a bit of an oxymoron but, oh well. I didn't really acknowledge it at first, but, upon reflecting and reading up on it, I realize it's true. Behavior that I thought was normal was revealed to be erratic. I'd thought that OCD was limited to repeating certain physical actions or having certain phobias, but it has a lot to do with thoughts as well. In a way, it's comforting to know that this is part of the problem, but it's disconcerting to think that I have all these things going on.

Anyway, still waiting on those Ferragamo shoes. Oh, where are they.
