shopping: not a spectator sport

and there continues to be some serious ugly going on for fall 2007 accessories. i won't even torture you with images here.

but, fortunately, one style seems to be making a noticeable comeback: the spectator shoe (specifically wingtip detailing)! it's like they knew i blew out the heel on my vaurigards! i'm excited! looks like i'll have plenty to choose from ...

( alexandra neel ... derek lam ... giorgio armani ... ... gucci ... miu miu ... miu miu again )

i'm really feeling the miu miu options. haven't decided how i feel about the superfluous ruffle though.
