Killer Heels: The Art of the High-Heeled Shoe 9/10 - 2/15

Walking in high heels takes practice - some could say it literally is an art form.  So it is no wonder the Brooklyn Museum opened the long awaited exhibit on the history of the high heel.

Killer Heels: the Art of the High-Heeled Shoes explores the symbolism of the shoe and features shoes from sixteenth century Italy to present day.  This exhibit will be on display from September 10th, 2014 to February 15th, 2015.  Check out shoes designed by Christian Louboutin, Manolo Blahnik, Alexander McQueen, and Vivienne Westwood.

Street Snaps: Secret Rose Boudoir Tea Party

Last month, I had the opportunity to attend a grand tea party in Baltimore hosted by the lady behind Moss Marchen. Held in the Royal Sonesta Hotel in Baltimore, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to meet some 90+ fans of Lolita fashion.  While Otakon was occurring that same weekend, a good portion of people had attended just for this event alone!

It was certainly a grand affair which everyone pulled out all the stops when it came to their coordinates. I was very impressed, overwhelmed and blown away by the entire well-dressed crowd.
