Shake that Bootie and TAG!

Tagged by Fellow Fashionista Closeup to share 6 Random Things About CC:
1) I can still do a cartwheel back-walkover even though I quit gymnastics 20 years ago.
2) Eating Trader Joe’s almond butter straight out of the jar is a semi-daily activity for me. Banana optional.
3) Having super long luxurious locks is essential for me; most of my nightmares involve someone cutting my hair… Photo at right via Tush Magazine.
4) My favorite “going out” outfit lately is a La Petite Salope bustier and skinny jeans (left, Silence & Noise; right, J Brand).
5) I just adore fashion illustration. At right, a Fifi Flowers original adapted from Vogue – delightful!
6) I am totally obsessed with booties… Brace yourselves for some major shoe porn, darlings!

Btw, I am tagging all my Fellow Fashionistas to tell us 6 Random Things about yourselves!!

From lace-ups to wedges, basic black to bejeweled blue, high-heeled ankle boots are back in a big way for Fall 2009!
