That first red lip is perfection! And the Rodarte collection at Target is so unique, I am dying for a pair of their lace tights. And also agree with the peep toe booties, they were a part of my New Year's Eve party look!

HiFashion said...

I love these pictures. Yes: red lips are gorgeous and I love the picture from Elle Spain.

Barry said...

CC, as a male I like some of the thoughts these images evoke!

I had a 'moment' today. I was out shopping with my wife Sandy (I think she's one of your bazillion followers) and realized I'm starting to see the art in women's shoes. I mean I've seen it in some Louboutins,Lims and Kirkwoods but I'm talking shoes in general (mostly high heels). And don't get me started about gladiator shoes...sexy, sexy, sexy!

I never noticed this stuff until I started hanging around female bloggers. Is there hope for me?

:)

PS: I have no desire to WEAR any of this stuff myself or anything weird like that, so I'm thinkin' I'm not too far gone. Heh heh.
