Meet my new Dries Van Noten babies. Orange lucite heel? Check! Multi-textured? Check! Porn for my feet? Check!

I saw these suckers on sale at Barneys this past weekend and was P.O.’d because they weren’t in my size. So, after trying on a few pairs of Miu Mius, Pradas and Wangs, I made one last lap around the sale section and shazam! there they were, the Dries Van Notens I’ve been goo goo gah gah for for months! The next few minutes are a bit of a blur as I darted toward the closest seat like a hungry lion and fastened the shoes of my dreams to my feet. Without so much as a blink of the eye, I whipped out my credit card and next thing I knew I was walking outside clutching my Barneys bag like a football.

Blacking out because of complete and utter excitement is truly the best.

My Mom has always said that nothing gives her greater joy than to shower the people she loves in gifts, and as a result, my brothers and I are the same way. Don’t get me wrong, I love getting gifts (who doesn’t?) but I also have so much fun shopping for other people. Would Gillian wear that blouse? Would Sevan like that bracelet? Does Erin have this cookbook? These are the things that run through my mind every time I go shopping.

Bisous Bisous

I have an ever growing shoe collection but admit that until recently I stuck to more classic styles for the sake of versatility. As much as I would love to buy every single krazy kool (see how I did that?) shoe in sight, my bank account is not a bottomless pit. Thankfully, my good friend Jordana Silver just launched a new shoe accessory line full of little bisous, otherwise known as shoe clips, that fasten onto pretty much any shoe (or bag or blouse or wherever you want to put them) in your closet.

Each bisous is under $100 and miraculously turns my drabby, beaten up shoes into a sparkling new pair that feel like a million bucks! Plus they make the perfect stocking stuffer. Talk about a win/win! Get yours here.
