I've seriously died and gone to heaven

Remember what I said about not buying shoes for a while? FORGET THAT NONSENSE. I can't stop. But I am limiting myself to a pair a month (generally). When I noticed one day last month that Solestruck had restocked the Jeffrey Campbell Nation H booties (my 8th pair of JC's), I nearly had a heart attack. I fell in love with these ages ago when I saw them being worn constantly by several fashion bloggers and wanted them BADLY. But no one had any in stock...until June 20 when I finally got to order them. Unfortunately Canada Post was on strike so Solestruck kindly agreed to hang on to them until the strike was over. I picked them up at the post office after work today and immediately tried them on. LOVE!!! They are perfect in every way. The slightly distressed quality of the leather is so cool, they are nice and fitted at the ankle, they are padded in the sole, and I got a size 9 (I'm an 8.5) so I could wear decent thickness socks in winter which was exactly the size I needed (PHEW!). If I ever see these pop up in the brown, I am going to shed tears of joy and order them too. These are now my absolute favourite shoe(boot/sandal/whatever) I own and I am going to live in these from now on. I LOVE YOU JEFFREY CAMPBELL!!!!!!!!!!

(Stay tuned in hopefully a few days for a couple other JC items I ordered the other day - for July)


Hardwood floors

I am not very good at making decisions. Especially when it comes to something as important as the flooring that will be ALL OVER my house. It turns out I'm really picky too (and so is Jeff). Because I'm planning on having predominantly white, black and grey decor I figured I needed something other than the typical brown. We found 3 that we really like, and they happen to be grey, which should work quite well...with the furniture we don't yet have. (LOL). These are in order of most smitten with (the first 2 are oak, the last is maple).

Now if we can just get the company to give us a sweet deal in exchange for some blog love....


Photos as artwork...

I love the use of photography in a home as artwork. I'm hoping to start a collection once I get over the debt of my home renovations. When photographer Roger D'Souza emailed about his new online shop of his photography I had to blog it. They are moody and graphic and would be a perfect statement on a white wall framed in a simple white frame. LOVE. My favs are below.
