Hello lovas, its been a minute since my last Shoe Files post, but ya girl has been busy basking in this LA sun. I recently relocated from New York City to Los Angeles and let me just tell you what a joy it has been! I’ve stepped fully outside of my comfort zone so I can get some shit POPPIN! With that said, you best believe I have already hit these LA streets donning some of my fav and recently ‘straight out the box’ footwear. Have a look-see for yourself…
On the train ride out west – yes I took the Amtrak this journey is all about comfort zones – I purchased these baby blues from Barney’s Warehouse. They were promoting an offer that just could not be refused – an additional 50% off CLEARANCE.

Location: Macy’s in Glendale as I was purchasing cookware.
During GRAMMY week I hit the town with my beauxs. We hit up every spot from the Hollywood Hills down to DTLA.

Location: Hollywood Hills, Mulhoulland Drive Mansion.
Next, I had the pleasure of witnessing the wonderment of Mr. Stevie Wonder himself during a taping of his GRAMMY tribute. Everyone from Beyonce to Jill Scout to Janelle Monae to India Arie to Jay-Z were in the building.
The Look: Jacket: H&M; T-Shirt: GAP; Denim: GAP; Necklace: Zara; Earrings: Henri Bendel; Watch: Michael Kors; Bracelets: Various; Bag: Phillip Lim; Shoes: Alexander McQueen – and yes yall have seen these before they are my FAV.

Reflections of my shoe future..Greta Garbo’s shoe trunk….
Couldn’t resist the wears….
And finally, OSCAR week arrived and all my ladies from ESSENCE magazine were in town for the illustrious Black Women in Hollywood event. On my way out to meet up with the homie, I needed to make some adjustments to my attire. I purchased these lovely sandals at a sample sale and the zipper on the left foot had the nerve to get stuck. Welp, I got some scissors and went to town on them heauxs creating a ‘new’ sandal.
