Alexander McQueen Reveal!

When I was in Seattle I totally planned on doing some major shopping because I knew Nordstrom's flagship store is in Seattle.  I had heard that the Nordstrom's in Seattle also had a Chanel store.  A Nordie's with a Chanel store?? SAY WHAT?  I AM SO THERE! 

However when I got there.. truthfully there wasn't anything that I loved at the Chanel store or in their shoe department so surprisingly (especially to the hubs) I left Seattle without having bought a single thing!  WHAT?! hahaha

I was a little bummed that I didn't get anything while on vacation (omg shopping addiction much? hahah)  But when we got back to SF I went to check the mail and found out I had a package waiting for me in the front office.  Imagine my surprise when I opened it and found this staring back at me. :)


The hubs purposely placed an order with Neiman Marcus right before we left for our Seattle trip so that I would have a package to open as soon as I got home.  CUTE RIGHT?!



The Neiman Marcus packaging is super cute it comes with a metal sunburst picture frame that you can use :)


It's even a brand name frame!  They sell Jay Strongwater frames at Neiman's.



My very first Alexander McQueen item!



Peek-a-boo!


OHHH EMMM GEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!


I had actually showed the hubs these shoes almost 6 months ago but I didn't dream of asking for them or saying that I wanted them because they were SO crazy expensive!! 

I just loved how they were totally strassed out with Swarovski crystals.  They are CRAZY iridescent sparkly.  The hubs secretly bookmarked them on his computer and has been privately tracking them and purchased them as soon as they went on sale! 

Thoughtful & Thrifty... that is my kind of man. hahaha.


The shoe itself is like a blush nude suede and the Swarovski crystals are iridescent pink and blue and they vary in crystal size.  I love how they are scattered on the side of the shoe and aren't uniform.  They are 4 inches high and they fit TTS.


I really love the sidecut outs in the shoe!

 



I'm so excited we're going to Vegas soon and I'm so excited about wearing these in Vegas!!  Don't they just seem like Vegas appropriate shoes?? hahaha



Hehehe :)

Thank you so much boo boo!! I LOVE THEM!!!!!!!!!!

So fluffy I just wanna squeeze her!!!!(or him haha) My bf would be surprised too if we went all the way down to the states and didn't buy a single thing! Oh you know what he loves? Those spicy cheetos you guys have!!! He buys soooo many bags back I always get worried about being pulled over at the boarder!!! Those things are so spicy I can't eat more than a few at one time but bf just scarfs down the whole bag! wthhh?! Can't wait for your vegas trip!!! I've never been but if sure looks like fun and a haven for shopping too =D

    We would totally be food buddies!!!! We have the same tastes in food which is awesome! It's hard to find someone who doesn't get tired of going to different tea places! As for the reveal, Im waiting for it to be a nice sunny day so the photos turn out nice naturally! Natural light is always the best! *though we rarely get it here T_T* I need to move somewhere sunny all year long!

  71. A red and green McQueen scarf kind of reminds me of a tomato :D

    The black and white one is too pain though - it's too expected. I think you should go for the black and blue one; it's so so cool. I like this one: http://www.neimanmarcus.com/store/catalog/prod.jhtml?itemId=prod108200021&eItemId=prod108200021&cmCat=search&searchType=MAIN&parentId=&icid=&rte=%252Fsearch.jhtml%253FNtt%253Dmcqueen%2526_requestid%253D34687%2526N%253D4294967293

    With leggings and a cardigan this is a killer!
