Missoni Condos

Feast your eyes on renderings of the 1st residential building interior designed by Missoni Home!

The 52-story project, called Acqua Livingstone, is set to open in 2015 in Manila, Philippines. The common spaces, like the pool, lobby and gym, are all decked out in the brand’s variegated squiggles and stripes, but the actual residences are empty of Missoni design touches, which are offered for an additional premium. One-bedrooms start at $82,000.

“We brought our colors and our style inside. It’s a happy, positive approach: summer colors, solar colors,” Vittorio Missoni said of the 52-story building. “Coming from the outside you’re going to be surprised. … It’s like opening a box and discovering something unexpected.”
I know my Mama will love this!

Monthly Shoe Clubs

26 Oct

I hate to admit it..but I am a member of 2..yes, 2 Monthly Shoe clubs. It took me awhile to sign up. Lots of research and questions, is it worth it? are the shoes cheap? are they all made in China? are they even cute? Lots of questions on my end. But finally after all my research, and hearing the good bad and ugly, I went and signed up anyway. Evil shoes have a hold on me!

Well it’s not as serious as it sounds.. The Monthly shoe club offer is this.. In the begining of the month they send you a few options. It varys from site to site, but about 5-10 options of shoes. This is after you take a quiz determining your fashion personality. If you don’t like any of the selections they sent you, you can ask for a batch of new shoes. If you still aren’t ticked by anything you see you simple skip the month and pay nothing. So it’s not as if you are tied into anything. No contracts, no monthly bill. It is only if you actually pick a shoe then you will be charged. The 2 sites I am on are very similar, $39.95 per item. They give you choices of shoes, jewlery and handbags. And during the month sometimes a secret item like a scarf, watch, whatever they pick.  The shoes are.. well.. cheap but cute and trendy. I am pretty sure they are all made in China.

Eventually if they have a higher end shoe club it will be amazing! With designer brands and quality shoes, wow I can just imagine…that might start lots of fight between my husband and I after he sees my Amex bill..so maybe the $39.95 club is safer!

Here are the 2 sites:
