Runway dreams

Hello everyone! I'm back from my glorious vacation (sadly) and I owe you guys some blog posts!

My favorites over at Project Rungay, Tom & Lorenzo, are so great to their minions and post full collections from Fashion Week on their blog for us to drool over. While I'm obsessed with many of the collections they have featured (Jason Wu, Prada, Versace to name a few), the shoes from the Prada and Versace collections stand out firmly in my mind. I can't stop looking at these shoes!

Here are a couple of my favorites.

Let's just have a moment of silence for this level of pretty.

Top Gun?

For as long as I can remember I have been a fan of aviators and leather bomber jackets (I own this one). For reasons unknown to myself, I can't seem to just purchase one nice pair of aviators instead of buying a "disposable" pair every 6 months or so.
I decided that a new pair of disposable aviators were a must have for my upcoming vacation to Mexico. For a cool $5.80 I purchased these for my trip. They are quite fabulous and stylish, but I do feel like I might need to just take the plunge and purchase a real pair.

After looking at a couple of sites, I realize that I tend to favor the droopier, metallic lens as opposed to the more butterfly shaped lens. Here are my favs:

I'm a sucker for the classic Ray-Ban.
Gucci aviators? Why not?! I think these have some great style to them and are just modern enough.
Ok, McQueen aviators are completely impractical but I die for that little skull on the side. And this chocolate brown color is simply to die for. Perfection, Mr. McQueen.
I think I've got some good candidates to choose from. Hope your sunglass hunt is going well!
