Back from my Blogger Break

… Because I had a Baby Girl!!

 

That is correct ladies and gents, Glam Girl is now a mommy to a beautiful and healthy (thank you God!) baby girl … We shall call her Baby Glam :)

My pregnancy was relatively smooth with some scares along the way which is why I felt I needed a blogging break to relax and focus on staying healthy to ensure a healthy pregnancy … And now I am back to blogging … While my little fashionista naps :)

Basically I dress up Baby Glam in a new outfit everyday and headband and bows to match!! Baby Glam has a huge shoe collection and I only expect it to soon rival my own collection – gee I hope we will be the same shoe size one day!

With that said I did gain 35 pounds during my pregnancy – and I have about 12 left to lose…. I need motivation to get these pounds off but even more with full access to my kitchen and pantry on a daily 24/7 basis … It’s easy to cheat! LOL

This blog will continue to cover fashion, food and now baby items !!

xoxo, Glam Girl

Couture to Copy : Quilted Pumps

COUTURE TO COPY:

QUILTED PUMPS

 

I really love how these simple quilted pumps by Brian Atwood make such a style-statement… “I’m Classy but Love A Little Drama”.

I must have these pump … really how can you not? They are so appropriate for work, not just another boring basic black pump, but still conservative enough… and yet put on your perfect LBD on the weekends they are just as stylish!

CLICK HERE: MANIAC PATENT HIGH-HEEL PLATFORM BASIC PUMP, Brian Atwood $584

At just under $600 it might be a deal-breaker for some but don’t fret my dear… I found you a pair for under $100.

Can’t spare even $100 this month? No worries… Kim Kardashian & Shoe Dazzle have you covered for under $40

Who can say no to $40 shoes that look like they cost hundreds? Not Me!!!

Sam Edelman & Ann Taylor Loft

Collaborations

Sam Edelman and Ann Taylor Loft

 

I love how even Loft is getting in on the designer capsule collections…but this one is an online-only collection. Sam Edelman’s shoes sell at high-end department stores and prices range from under $100 to a few hundred depending on the style. Loft and Sam’s designs will sell between $100 for gemstone sandals and $160 for espadrille heels with various classic styles in-between. These shoes are very cute and I really love the hemp-wrapped heels of the espadrille heels but the collaboration doesn’t seem to be a “low-cost” collection.

CLICK HERE: Tacoma Snakeskin Print Peeptoe, Sam Edelman for Loft $150

CLICK HERE: Betty Ballet Flats, Sam Edelman for Loft $110

CLICK HERE: Mabel Espadrille Peeptoes, Sam Edelman for Loft $140

Do these capsule collection shoes have your attention?
