Blog Spotlight: Modelizing

Not only do I love to blog, but I love to read other people's blog. Modelizing is one of those great fashion-related websites I like to check out every so often. The blogger of Modelizing is a Parsons photo student who photographs NYC store displays during her spare time. Through her blog, I can look at the amazing window displays in front of Barney's and Louis Vuitton without having to drive 5 hours to NYC. The photographs are especially awe-inspiring during the Christmas season. So check out this blog ASAP!

NineWest's Shoe Star

Nine West is running a competition that has a basic premise very much like Project Runway. They take 7 shoe designer wannabes and give them different design challenges. The first one so far has just been a sketch challenge. However, NW did invite a very amazing guest judge, none other than Giuseppe Zanotti (yes, yes, the designer of thousand dollar shoes). If you're like me, you just might check it out because of your utter obsession for shoes and Project Runway. Maybe, they might have Mr. Louboutin guest judge at some point, and that's worth watching.

Sample sketches done by contestants



Graphic Shoes

Three fun, bold prints on three must-have shoes. They will go perfectly with that frilly white dress you've been dying to try out for spring.

Aren't these Sam Edelman "Carmen" flats so cute! It's all very yellow and fun. Too bad they're $95 at Nordstrom. I'll wait until they go on sale.

How about these Emilio Pucci heels in aqua? The $410 price tag on Piperlime is a bit staggering though, but Pucci always makes very nice eye candy.

The blue floral design makes these Arturo Chiang "Katia" wedges absolutely adorable. They are on sale at Macy's for $55 but available only in black, which looks really boring.
