Alert. Alert. Alert. We interrupt your normally-scheduled blog post to inform you about some incredibly hot new shoes. These aren’t just any old shoes. They are drop dead gorgeous, sky-high black patent leather heels that will make people gasp in awe should you wear them.
Do you feel adequately warned? Because here they are…. Giuseppe Zanotti Patent Leather Peep-Toe Mary Jane Pumps ($650, Saks Fifth Avenue.)
AREN’T THEY INCREDIBLE? I realize they are reminiscent of the YSL Tribute Mary Janes that I also love but these are just fabulous. I love the covered platform and the shape of the peep toe. Just perfection. I think they might be a $100 or $200 cheaper too.
What do you think? Hot or not?
I’m a big Louboutin fan… I think he makes amazing shoes and I’m still not over the red sole. In fact, every time I think I’m sick of the red, I’ll stumble across another pair of fabulous heels or boots.
And today, I came across these beauties:
Right? How cute are theses? In fact, I think they are the perfect bootie. Some booties are a little too crazy for me. My style is more tailored/classic and some of the booties on the market seem too ornate for me. But these. THESE ARE FANTASTIC! Simple cut. Platform for comfort. Elegant split front. And great height.
And the taupe color! Love these!

The truth is I’ve been obsessed with Yves St. Laurent heels for several years. I think YSL makes amazing shoes (and bags for that matter) and I’ve tried on many pairs over the years. I just haven’t been able to pull the $800ish trigger quite yet. But I dream about them on an almost daily basis.
Here are some of the pairs I covet:
I mean, right? HOW HOT IS THIS SHOE?!? I would kill a man for a pair of these in black. I would maim a man for them in red. Yes, they’re high but anyone who knows me is well aware that I’m rarely found wearing a heel less than 4 inches. I love the platform front and the stiletto heel is just breathtaking. Ready to really swoon? Here’s the metallic version:
Tribute Platform Pump
If you’ve known me for a long time, you’re aware that I could talk of little else when this heel first hit stores. I love the little strap, the peep toe, and the platform. It has a four inch heel and one inch platform–love it! I think these are so cute and dainty and while they won’t work with every outfit, they’d be a perfect finishing touch on a super feminine outfit.

I love clothes. And shoes and handbags. And scarves and coats and boots. I also love make up. And movies. God, I love a good movie. And good TV! And cocktails and a great white ale. I love it all.
I also like to write, so I’m combining all of this into a blog. I didn’t want to focus on JUST fashion or JUST entertainment so I’m doing both. Back in a former work life, I created the idea of ‘The Hot Pink List’ as a girlie list of all my favorite things. I liked the name then and still like it now so I’m hacking it and using it again here for my blog.
My goal is to update this daily with something: a dress I love, a bag I covet, a TV show clip that made me laugh, a must-see movie suggestion, or a cocktail recipe I think you should try. I’m excited and can’t wait to start.
Introducing… The Hot Pink List!
