"Okay, so it's time to start this blog again and be more active on it. I've been procrastinating on it for way too long. This blog will be about so much more than shoes which was the intention of it when I first started with it, but since I'm such a mixed person that won't really happen. A lot of shoes will be included though. I was gone to New Orleans from the 21st of April to the 1st of June which of course made it quite impossible for me to blog actively, however I got a lot of inspiration from my trip there."
I can't believe I never posted this and it's now almost 2 years old. Time does fly fast, doesn't it? Love it though. I need to go back there one day, I might bring my mother too, so she can see where her ancestors once worked.
In the 30s and 40s when there was an economical and political crisis around the world, people turned their ears and eyes to the glamorous world of Hollywood and to Swing music. Same thing happened in the late 70s, when people turned to the liberating Disco music and wanted to dress all glam and impress people and have a good time. I'm living in a post-economical crisis (you probably remember the crisis in 2008) and while I don't really like the music scene at the moment, the electro/house-pop infused music is a reaction in some ways to what happened, it's mechanical and it's not that expensive to create, because most of the productions are done on a computer. This type of music has opened it doors to people who just want to have a good moment in their life and don't care that much about the product they are giving out. But it's also represented in the way we dress because these past years, the fur has been popular yet again. In some ways it's securing to go back to this fantasy world of glamour, because it allows us to forget about daily problems. This is exactly what I'm doing because my life is a dream and with this economical crisis, I need to escape and dream of having a cool apartment like the one above, when I move out. I'm nervous about it and pretty excited. There are some things I need to do before this becomes a reality though and I'm planning on doing some other extravaganzas before I move out, but I strongly believe people need to glam themselves up in times of crisis, even if that means painting your nails in new nail polish or buy some new shoes. It's all about self-indulgent and feeling good during the weekends, when you feel like crap during the weeks, with all the studying and working that people do, you need to let loose and have fun. If my plans go like I want it to, I'll be traveling to Switzerland and Mexico this summer, but only time will tell and money... lol... /Miss X

Now I've known for some hours that the beloved Liz Taylor died at 79 years old and I can finally write something about it. Liz Taylor has always been one of my fav actresses and also very much a style icon(with all those lovely & expensive jewellry she would always wear!). I'm still kinda shocked because it's all so unexpected, I really thought she would get older but I guess her body couldn't handle it no more. She was one of the last actresses from Hollywoods golden age, with those lovely women who were stylish and had great acting skills. Movies & photos with liz taylor are always so inspirational to look at and I will always remember her for being a lovely person with so many talents, she's one of the few people who've won two oscars. She was also a person who very much respected the privacy of others and that's something I find very honest and I'm glad she never made a book talking about all the people she knew(that happens so often in Hollywood),she's taking alot of her secrets with her to the other side.
Right now I'm thinking about how beautiful she looked in Cleopatra (her eyes that look purple!) and her old classic movies, so it's only right for me to upload beautiful pics of this beautiful lady! We miss your dearly, Miss Taylor!
PS. I hope I can find a copy of her book: Elizabeth Taylor : My love affair with jewelery, I'm sure there are some stunning pictures in it. I remember seeing the book in a book store in Pasadena, California but never bought it.

So I just found these lovely woven metal sandals by spanish-cuban Alejandro Ingelmo from his 2009 collection and don't they look fab?! Beautiful indeed yet so modern and chic. Love them! He does great men's shoes too! Like these snake skin sneakers... (I'm guessing all guys looking at these shoes, are having shoe-orgams too! ;)!!)
Thanks Alejando for making both girls & boys getting obsessed by your sexy shoes!
Don't you love this look with Kid Cudi/GQ Dec Issue 2010? It looks so casual yet so modern. The khaki shirt really makes it look even better, because it's a color you wouldnt expect but then again, it's a color guys should wear more often cuz it's hot! Love it!

Not really... Just very much bored at work...But I have to say I love complicated people, and I guess that's why I love drawing things like this. Dresses & shoes that are unique is something I really appreciate too. I also LOVE big lips! (Random yes, but so me!)
I give you a million dollars if you answer WHY I ALWAYS SPILL TEA OR WATER ON MY DRAWINGS?!?! hahaha...
P.S listening to Mary Mary- Get up (contemporary gospel song from 2008 haha I really do listen to everything, don't I? hahaha!) I like some gospel singers, but I ALWAYS seem to forget their names hahaha.

I think that a girl gets more jealous when the boy she likes, is paying all his attention to the moon, than him looking at another girl. Why? Because giving his love to the moon is something she can't do anything about,because it's an eternal love something that she can't compete with. Therefore she feels an empitness in her heart, that she can't explain and she gets sad. The girl of course knows it's foolish to be sad about such a thing, but yet she can't stop thinking if he was just like her. Then to make it worse, she mentions old garbage boys from the past to make the moon lover, a little jealous but it doesn't work because she ends up hurting herself more. A complicated thought pattern is not always the most easiest thing to understand, yet this very same pattern; is exciting to keep discovering.
Doesn't make sense? I think it does and therefore I'm sorry for my foolishness.

My dream was very strange, I was probably on drugs or something. I felt so lonely when I saw you from afar, I think it was you. He looked like you, but I wasnt' sure, because I never saw his face. Holding you was very beautiful and I took you everywhere and you didnt' say anything. He was just very calm and protected me from malicious spirits, that only he could see. My eyes were darkened and as I opened them again, there were people that had followed us and was looking at me. I ignored them because even in my dark hours, I still have some honor left. Then after a while you looked at me and told me, that it was my turn to go with you and not ask any questions about the things we would do. So I went with this strong man and not once did I ask a question because I knew that he had prepared my path. But before I took his hand and walked away, a question echoed in my head " would he do anything for me? without questioning me?"... I never answered myself, but I followed him nonetheless.
/Miss X is confusing sometimes...
P.S listening to Born This Way- Lady Gaga (Annoying as HELL, but the monster got me again.)
