Come Walk in My Shoes: Dolce Vita


I love the fusion of the classic and modern that was done with these Dolce Vita’s from eModa.com. The detailed design puts me in mind of The Cotton Club and the movie Harlem Nights while the platform, earth tones and overall look of the shoe makes them perfect for corporate America. The $140 price tag isn’t bad either.

Vintage Lavish Diva: Eartha Kitt

The legendary and unimitable Eartha Kitt left this earth today after a long battle of colon cancer. A true definition of a diva, Ms. Kitt utilized her feline charm and sharp wit to entrance generations of fans while inspiring countless singers, actresses, and entertainers. However, she also used her celebrity for the greater good, whether this meant tirelessly fighting alongside the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. for civil rights and speaking out against the increasingly unpopular Vietnam war – thus resulting in a ten-year professional exile from America. Through changing tastes and mores, Ms. Kitt maintained her rightful place as a cinema, stage, and television icon until the end – qualities that secure her place as an eternal Lavish Diva.

So, in keeping with the spirit of the holidays and the memory of the fabulous Ms. Kitt, we at Lavish would love to dedicate this tune to all of the Lavish divas out there:

Merry Christmas!

Barack Obama: The college years

Boy, I walk away for a few weeks and all this happens. Wall Streeter Bernie Maddoff robs people of 50 billion at the Worst. Time. Ever. I guess grandma was wrong when she said that it always helps to have a Jew on your side. Well, not always, I guess. Anyway, the lesson here is, diversify, people! Everybody is homeless. I don’t feel so bad anymore. Somali pirates (PIRATES!) said ‘screw technology’, and conquered the seas with a couple of sawed-off guns, some old-fashioned grenades, and a few pocket knves. Indian massacre terrorists used technology and Twittered their way into infamy. Beyoncé decides to diss the Jacksons and open the door for young entertainers. As if I didn’t have Oprah or Tina Turner to look up to. Speaking of the Jacksons, Janet got knocked up by JD and finally got the cover of a tabloid weekly after, like, YEARS. Congrats. My beloved Bettie Paige, queen of fetish, and lingerie muse, died. Bummer. Zimbabwe stooped to a new low (or high?) with a 10 BILLION dollar note. Are they for real? Somebody threw a shoe at President Bush, and I couldn’t stop laughing. Whitney Port is coming to ‘The City’ and I can now look forward to a fresh gaggle of starry-eyed chicklettes rushing to New York to be in the fashion industry. Again. I’m bouncing out of here before New York drowns under Paterson’s taxes. Oh, Happy Holidays!
