Ugg - Sundance II (Chestnut) - Women's

It seems that Ugg boots should have run their course by now, but with cigarette jeans being seen worn by the celebrities, looks like we will have at least one more season of the warm Australian booties. I saw pictures of celebrity mom, Tori Spelling with her sweet little baby and they both were wearing a pair!

Ugg Kids - Erin (Infant/Toddler) (Sand) - Kids'

The Sundance II has a slightly different style than the Sundance short and is really cool in basic black. Just think what a long lean leg a pair of tight leg black pants and pair of these scrumptious suede boots would give.

I seriously am considering a pair of Cordy boots, but I just love the Sand or Chestnut suede or is it the black or ........ Yikes, the Ugg line could break this diva's footwear budget in a flash!


Steve Madden - Trishia (Red Suede) - Women's

Ok, I'm developing an ankle boot fetish. I just can't get enough of these sexy little bootys! And I am not alone....would you like to know which of your men have emailed me to ask for resources for booties? Don't be surprised if you get a pair of fishnet stockings and a pair of suede stiletto heel boots in your stocking on Christmas.

If you've been a very good (or naughty in a good way) little girl, Santa might bring baby pair of mid-calf or knee high metallic red boots to keep her pretty legs warm. A nice collar of soft fur around the top would feel ever so nice and look so festive for the holidays or just for lounging in the ski lodge with a cup of hot chocolate.

Here are a few more of my favorite things in flirty red leather! I know that solid red is very sophisticated, but I couldn't resist including the pair of wild designer boots in purple and red even though they are outrageously expensive.

Beryl's Green Crystal Chandelier Earrings


Sure a stunning redhead like Marcia Cross would look good in a trash bag with poptops snapped on her ears, but what about the rest of us? If you have a pale, flawless marble textured complexion, green gemstones will certainly look stunning on you with little or no effort. Brilliant red hair and hazel or emerald eyes will add even more fuel to the fire.

You might ask the question whether or not you can wear a green gown and emeralds if you are a brunette? My answer to that question is a resounding affirmative! Can anyone forget Scarlett O'Hara? Is there any more perfect example of a dark haired beauty that would do the color green justice?

I do declare that I believe that the soulful eyes belonging to this southern belle were a charming shade of deep green so that tied the color scheme together with a nice little bow. But so what if your eyes are cornflower blue! With the wild array of color contacts at our disposal anyone can change their eye color at the drop of a hat!

This is one of the best movie star fashion tips that I can share: temporary color changes of the eyes and hair will vastly expand your wardrobe and jewelry possiblities. Chandelier earrings of real emeralds and diamonds might be too expensive to play dress up for one party, but if faux jewels are good enough for movie stars we can follow along in their fantastic celebrity fashion footsteps!


Nine West - Bhavin (Dark Red Leather) - Women's

We reported a few days ago that since the weather has gotten colder, we had spotted the possibility of a new fashion trend. We reported on just how hot Celine Dion’s outfit that included a dress with a pair of suede ankle boots (shoebooties) and textured tights was about a week or so ago.

The Early Show jumped on board with us this morning and didn’t give this little movie star fashion blog a bit of credit! No surprises there, but pardon me if I can’t resist the temptation to crow a bit on being on the cutting edge of star wardrobe trends that are easy for the average woman to copy. Shoebooties are really cheap and we are always on the lookout for an inexpensive way to look fresh and stylish.

Joanna Coles, gave a demonstration on the proper way to wear this style lady's shoe as well as sharing her ideas on when, where and how the boots might be worn with success.

Why she would bother to issue warnings that every woman (or kids) might not be able to pull off the fashion? It stands to reason that you wouldn’t put a young child in stiletto heels with pointed toes to protect the development of their young, delicate feet. Nor would an elderly person want to wear an urban style with gothic studs and chains although all that metal might just look stunning against the chrome on their walker!

After looking around at selections of the slouched ankle boots as well as the sleek, trim styles; I do believe there is a pair out there for everybody no matter what your age, leg shape or body profile might be. Children can wear flat ankle boots with a roomy toe box without risking damage to their little feet. Granny can find a well constructed pair of leather boots that have some orthopedic qualities and the plus size woman will look booty-licious in a wide width suede pair of ankle boots for women covered in bling bling that will draw the eye towards the generous curve of her legs.

We are having such FUN with these boots and we hope that you will give your curvaceous calves an opportunity to shine, too! Invest in basic colors with too many decorations and you will get many miles of wear out of your footwear. They are seen in pictures of pretty pedicured toes every winter and that’s not going to change. Ankle boots won’t go out of style, even if the trendy, name ,shoebooties, does!

Along with basic black and brown leather, go funky and wild with a pair of red slouch ankle boots or shiny black patent leather ones for the holidays. Think how fabulous they will look with sheer hosiery with a bit of sparkle to match your red sequins on your holiday top or dress.


There are many photographs of Britney Spears on the net today that were taken of her as she was prancing about celebrating her birthday.
She was all about black and white partywear except for large almost square lense sunglasses in brown! My first question would be why she would break up a reasonably sophisticated monochromatic look with off color brown sunglasses. Then it just might smack me on the head to wonder why those girls are wearing shades at night? What's the point in that unless they think their eyes might be telltale windows into what they were up to? In the photo that I saw, she was hanging arm in arm with cousin Ali Sims and there was just a glimpse of Paris Hilton in the background.

Black is Britney's color. With her hair bleached as light as can be, black is just perfect and the wide black beaded choker was a nice touch to the fur (we can only hope it was faux fur) trimmed leather jacket was nice, too.

Cousin Ali was wearing a pewter or silver metallic shift and peep toe pumps as well as yet another pair of BROWN shades. Anybody care to comment on all those brown glasses?

Lumiani - Vina (Black Suede/Black Patent) - Women's

Lumiani - Viera (Black Suede) - Women's

There's no denying that Celine Dion could take two foot length pieces of wood, strap them on her lovely narrow feet and make them fashionable! I've admired the way she looks in her outfits as well as her selection of footwear and today is no different.

She was wearing textured black tights and black suede ankle boots. The dress was a form fitting black number with hot pink detailing which was cute, but whose allure was pale in comparison to the display closer to the floor!
It makes me ask the question how Celine stays so thin, but manages to skirt the "skinny stick legs" syndrome that plagues models with similar body mass.

I'm not certain of the designer of the black boots, but here are some similar styles with the pictures of the more expensive ones at the top and the inexpensive ones last.

The Lumiani Bedelia come in gray and brown suede as well as black and I just love the heel which is just a slight bit more substantial than the Vina. How do you like that precious, sexy ruffle at the top? The selling point of the Vina is the joining of black suede with patent leather details. Many ladies will prefer the slightly tapered heel. For use with a business suit, the pleated cuff on the Lumiani Viera might display those sexy calves in a more professional manner.

Betsey Johnson - Wink (Black Leather) - Women's

I know this entry started out as a tribute to Celine Dion's ankle boots, but
I can't resist showing you this pair of playful, mid-calf Betsey Johnson faux fur trimmed boots. They scream "ski vacation" don't they? The pom poms make me want to be a cheerleader! Spike heels add some sex appeal to the mix.

Now for the cheap black suede ankle boots that I promised you!

Gabriella Rocha - Sol (Black Leather/Suede) - Women's

Tori Spelling's Outfit

I just saw celebrity mom, Tori Spelling, on The View and I have to say that she looked fabulous! Motherhood has really brought out the best in Tori. She has developed a confident and stylish look that I can only wish to copy!

Her hairstyle is short, very blonde and suits her to a T. I'm searching for the fabulously flattering deep purple (or royal blue?) spaghetti strap dress that she was wearing so if anybody knows the designer please let me know. It had a pretty gathered bodice and skirt that might even make me look hot!

Her shoes might be more easy to copy, here's a pair that I found
GUESS - Brittania (Oat Patent) - Women's

only the heels on this pair have metallic decorations on them. They are inexpensive, but the spike heels might not be everybody's taste.

Here's a pair of Stuart Weitman's that you can get in ivory, off-white or even mushroom suede if you like with a heel that more closely resembles the high heels that Tori was wearing this morning. Sorry, but I don't have pictures but the link will get you there
Stuart Weitzman - Platpurist-Platform (Mushroom Suede) - Women's

I suppose a pair of peep toe pumps would work, but somehow the closed toe platforms worked better.

Tori was wearing a yellow gold necklace with large uneven oval links that I loved. I wondered if it was part of her new jewelry line, but I checked and found some earrings that were similar, but no necklace. DARN IT!

Anyway, somebody let me know the brand name of that dress before the weekend. OK?


Carrie Underwood, recentAmerican Idol winner, was seen strolling in NYC recently in a really cute black, silver and white striped fall sweater dress that was identified as an Ella Moss Aspen dress.

You can pick this dress up for about $270.00 at shopbop or bluebee if you feel the urge to dress up in Carrie's outfit!

Katie Holmes Peep Toe Pumps. Two ankle straps, burgundy and fabulous!

Jessica Bennett - Gesine (Burgundy) - Women's


I just saw a picture of Katie and Suri out for the day in gay Paris and they looked so sweeet!!

Katie was wearing a taupe trench coat and these fabulous burgundy peep toe pumps (?). I have looked for some similar shoes, but can only come up with the following choices which are cool, but no cigar. Here's the pic I'm referring to. Does anyone know the brand?


Helle Comfort - Kala (Black Suede) - Women's

Helle Comfort - Lynann (Black) - Women's

Helle Comfort - Bambi (Black Multi) - Women's

Forgive my sudden obsession with Helle Comfort shoes, but they have me completely hooked! I set out to find some black patent leather sandals and was completely blind sided by the style of these cool shoes! I had heard people discuss them on the web, but I tend to discount any shoe with the word "comfort" or "comfortable" associated with them as matronly or something granny might toddle about in, not exactly a good match for what I look for in footwear.

I like heels and wedges that make my feet look trim and sleek. I pay close attention to how they make the calf of my legs look from the rear. If they don't add to the long and sexy look that I want, they're history! So, when I find a brand that does all that and is COMFORTABLE....oh hello. There we go.

The beaded pump is going in my shopping cart for a Christmas cocktail party option and the soft puckered leather ballerina flat with the silver buckle is coming along just because it's so cute! And why do I adore the slides with the multiple buckles? Because they are adjustable which will make them fit so nicely over the high instep of my foot. Anybody else have problems getting shoes to fit over the arch of your foot without pain? OUCH!

Helle Comfort - W70204 (Black With Crystals) - Women's

I chose those mules over the ones with the crystals beading for that very reason. Although, I really did like the way those beads sparkled!


Not so long ago it was Miley Cyrus in red sequins and then I see Hayden Panettiere pictures and what was she wearing? BLACK SEQUINS! The neckline was round and I couldn't really tell if it was a bubble dress or just your run of the mill Empire waist standard hemline mini. With her blonde hair it was a super contrast. I'm not sure she chose the best shoes for the outfit, though. I would have loved to see her in a pair of sequin peep toe pumps in a spike heel as she is not that tall.

Tell me which of the above shoes you think work best with a black sequined mini-dress? The maryjanes that she was wearing resembled the ones above except the heel was square and chunky. It's my opinion (and I want to hear yours)that the peep toes are lovely, but I think that the spike heels would be nicer and more slimming than the chunk, thick heels.

You can see an Alice & Olivia Black Sequin Dress similar dress to the one she was wearing at shopbop so you can form an opinion.

Earlier in the year, she was seen in a yellow and white sequin dress. The yellow and white stripes in the pictures brought those huge, hideous albino reptiles to mind.


Sequin Satchel

Well, maybe but Miley Cyrus has her own sense of style and fashion and was seen wearing a top that would win the title of red sequin top of the season in my book. Here's a red sequin bag that I think shines nicely, but Miley (aka Hannah Montana) did it better. She's a pretty girl in red sequins or whatever!

I don't know that I'd have the confidence to clothe my entire upper bod in blazing, sparkling red sequined glory, but a purse or even some red sequin beaded evening shoes paired with a black cat suit ala Olivia Newton John in Grease makes me want to shed those extra pounds and go 80s on somebody!

I'd never manage to look sexy like Olivia Newton John or Miley Cyrus. I'd probably come off looking like some demented flapper in full costume with feathers. Kind of like Cruella DeVille with a long cigarette holder and a wicked look in my eyes.
