I just bought myself a pair of gorgeous black sandals with 4.5 inch heels and patent upper part with cork platform from Nine West.

Lookie, lookie and weep in envy: ;)



Bigger view )

I plan to wear it with this dress I bought at Anthropologie a few weeks back (I just discovered this store and it’s going to ruin my wallet):



I also bought a cute red-and-white-circles dress from a small store, which is quasi-50s style just like the one above, with the slightly poofy skirt and a fitted top. It has wide shoulder straps and a couple of red buttons on the front. I love that style because I love retro looks but also because it’s the one that looks best on me, so am happy it’s coming back. And now I’ll have something else to pair with the strappy red sandals I bought in a store in Asakusa. I didn’t have much to pair with them earlier except for a pleated two-layer skirt I bought in Kyoto which had some red in it.

Guuuh, I am such a consumer lately. I should take pictures of it because I suck at description of clothes.

In less shallow news, I am reading Tom Holland’s Persian Fire about the roots for the Greek-Persian wars in the 5th century BC (as well as about the wars themselves) and it’s a total page turner, every bit as good as his earlier Rubicon. That’s why I am not keen on historical fiction. Non-fiction is crazier and more exciting than anything a novelist can do.

And to conclude, here is the youtube vid I am in love with. It's the picturization of 'Tauba Tumhare Yeh Ishare' from the gorgeous Bolly movie Chalte Chalte. It's sexy and romantic and set in Greece (the number) and adorable.

1. I have new shoes. Bought at Nine West. They have huge heels, are light brown, laquered, open toed, and GORGEOUS. My excuse? I realized I have no brown shoes at all. Not that many shoes, period, mainly boots and sandals. Time to shoe-shop! My shoes are a cross between this shoe (only it has a strap across) and this shoe (that's the kind of strap they have) (only of course they are light brown in color, not light pink or pastel). I keep randomly staring at my feet. The heels are at least 3.5 inches and the best thing is, they are the exact shade as my coat. eeeee!

2. [livejournal.com profile] alexandral posted an awesome Hyun Bin (Korean actor) picspam here.

3. This evening, [livejournal.com profile] klmorgan and I are having a Fushigi Yuugi marathon. Tamahomeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

4. Yesterday, when I stopped by CVS, they had my favorite ice-cream (half the time they are out): Haagen-Datz's vanilla with chocolate covered almonds. It's safely stashed in the fridge now, but I can still hear its siren song.

5. Wallflower manga OWNS me and Kyohei is my newest fictional crush. He is violently awesome (or is it 'awesomely violent'). I love the bit in volume 2 where the guys get kidnapped by a murderess (but a real lady, as they are quick to point out, LOL) ghost who's taken posession of Sunako and so she chains them all up in basement, dresses them in s&m-y attire, to have her wicked way with them and kill them (yes, it's official, the mangaka LOVES s&m. Half her face panels feature Kyohei behind bars or in cuffs). But Kyohei burns his way through the ropes and then decides that the best way to get Sunako to kick the ghost out and retake posession of her body is to kiss her. Because she'll flip so much. And he is right! Heeeeee. And he ends up carrying her (wrapped in a blanket) the steep way out of the basement, which is AWESOME. And then the guys (who seem permanently strapped for cash) decide that the gear the ghost put them in would totally sell well and complain about the clothes and Kyohei is all 'I am the one who looks like a freak, in all these chains' ROFL. I really hope if Sunako and Kyohei ever really hook up, they never have any kids, because OMG, scary parents. And I have volumes and volumes to go!

6. Green Rose also owns me. Ep 4, with the desperation, and the angst, and hotness? YES.

7. First ep of Hana Yori Dango 2 aired earlier today in Japan and the torrent will be up soon and I read spoilers and *glee*

8. There is a person in Malaysia I could hug right now. Just before I left the house this morning, a FedEx person showed up. Inside the package? Even though I ordered less than a week ago? My delicious, shiny, shrink-wrapped DVDs of Tatta Hitotsu No Koi (Just One Love) which I unwrapped and checked, and yes indeed, they have shiny Chinese, Malay and perfect English (!!!!!) subtitles. (Oddly, the pic quality, while fine enough, is not as crisp as my dls, but I don't care). OMG. Bye, weekend!

9. Brunch on Sunday. I missed having brunch in this cool Belgian place and that is where I'll be heading. Or maybe this little place that does (among other things) oatmeal souffles (to die for). Or a Swedish place with some amazing salmon dishes. I love brunch and we haven't gone out to one for a while. But we will this time.

10. Jasper Fforde's Jack Spratt Nursery Crime books. Just discovered, instantly beloved...

YES.
