Gleam! Gold & Green.

One of the things I enjoy doing for some "me time", is choosing a day out of the weekend to spend a few reclusive hours at Chapters.  I usually start by indulging myself with a Strawberry Vivanno Smoothie with whipped cream and a Marshmallow Dream Bar from the Starbucks Cafe. (Whoever came up with that name for a Rice Krispies square is a genius! So luxurious sounding, especially when said with a Bri-ish accent. Try it!)

I wander through the aisles, somewhat aimlessly until something catches my eye. I am quite fascinated yet fearful of the business and finance section, with all of the 600 page hard covers and books "...For Dummies".

My main stop, however, is the Magazines section, pulling as many beauty and fashion magazines as my arms can hold.  Elle, In Style, Vogue, Flare, W, Dazed, Zink, LouLou, Essence, Glamour, and the list goes on. Then I scout the floor a place to sit; which on weekends is hard to find.  I usually end up sitting on a plastic mini seat in the kiddie area or I find an obscure corner and plop my self cross-legged on the floor.

Anywho, as I make a short story long, I went to Chapters Sunday past.  One of the Autumn trends that got me uber excited is the green and gold combination. (Warm, yellow-based tones look great with my complexion!)

Saw these Gucci heels (from the 2011 Fall collection) plastered all over the internet and fashion magazines aournd the end of May, June sometime.  I love the python texture detailing for the ankle strap (python print is another hot trend for fall).

I have a pair of gold and green gemmed sandals that I got to rock this summer.  The first time I wore them, my legs shaked if I stood in one place to long.  I think the sole-to-heel angle is kinda steep with no arch support; but I'm good now.
