Review: Ann Taylor's Bow Peeptoe Pump

I first discovered these little ladies via The Chloe Conspiracy, and thanks to a 40% off coupon, I had to make them mine!

I am usually a size 7.5, but there was too much of a gap in that size, so I had to go down to a 7. They are actually quite comfortable, and will go with literally everything. (This is my first ever shoe review, so I took way too many pictures!) They make me feel so tall and chic! :) Special thanks to GiGi for the linking!

*UPDATE* First day of wearing report: I wore them from 830am until 7pm, and my feet are definitely sore. I used a gel foot petal the entire day, which helped a lot. I sit at a desk most of the day, and my feet did pretty well until about 3:30, there was some rubbing on the toes, but the heel was amazingly fine. I had errands to run after work, and that's when the pain set it. These are not walking around shoes, but they're not unbearable. I plan to wear them out to dinner, to weddings/holiday parties etc. But of course I will bring flats with me. They're your typical high heel, they're going to need broken in, but definitely worth it. I received countless compliments!

Here they are, the Bow Peeptoe Pump:

We ventured out to the NC State Fair on Friday night, with the sole mission to eat really bad for you foods. :)

Deep-fried Twinkie! Consensus: YUM

Where fried foods come to breed! Fried Mac 'N Cheese, Oreos, Pecan Pie, Cheesecake, etc etc

Of course we had to try the chocolate-covered bacon! Consensus: Yuck.
More deep-fried insanity.

Ruche Wish List

The Fall Look book from Ruche arrived in my inbox today, and of course I had to amass a wish list of my favorites.
Candra pink v-neck dress, $34.99 -- Love the pink, and it looks really comfortable.
Onyx loose shirt dress, $36.99 -- So versatile, switch out colorful tights and boots, add a belt and bam: easy uniform for fall.
Turquoise floral shimmer ring, $16.99 -- I'm a sucker for cocktail rings, and this one is adorable. The colors are very "in" this fall.
Coffee shop knitted cardigan by C.Luce, $54.99 -- This looks ridiculously comfortable, and perfect for those crisp autumn strolls.
Blowfish "Wild Life" canvas buckle boots in black buff, $90.00 -- Great boots to pair with jeans, dresses, and skirts.
Atlantic wool belted coat by Tulle, $119.99 -- Buttons! Blue! Yes!

PLEASE let this movie happen!!

Angelina and Gucci!? And Leo, too! OH MY.

This movie just made my 13 year-old self scream with joy. PLEASE let this happen, movie Gods!

According to Variety:
Scott, Jolie join for 'Gucci' drama

Ridley Scott is in discussions with Angelina Jolie for a femme fatale role in "Gucci," a drama about murder and decadence in the Gucci fashion dynasty.

Fox 2000 is fashioning a 2010 start date for the film, and Scott is talking with Jolie to play Patrizia Reggiano, who was sentenced to 29 years in jail for plotting the murder of her ex-husband, Maurizio Gucci.

Pic is a priority for Fox 2000's Elizabeth Gabler and Carla Hacken, with Scott Free and Giannina Facio producing.

The studio is about to hire a scribe to rewrite the drama that recaptures the glamorous days of the Gucci family dynasty in the 1970s and '80s, when the family was selling $500 million in product annually. Squabbles hobbled the clan until Maurizio, the grandson of founder Guccio Gucci, came out on top of a power struggle to run the family business. Just when he was about to reestablish the brand name by debuting a line designed by newcomer -- and now film director -- Tom Ford, Maurizio was gunned down in front of his Milan apartment in 1995.

There are moving pieces in the film, as the script is still being developed and Scott needs to lock down an actor to play Maurizio. The director has approached his "Body of Lies" star Leonardo DiCaprio, but he is not attached at this point.
