The Full Monty on Mia

saint laurent platform shoes


Definition: The Full Monty: 

A British slang phrase.  It is generally used to mean “everything which is necessary, appropriate, or possible; ‘the works’”
.  .  .

I randomly met Mia through a bag forum.   She offered to shoot me for my blog and that snow balled into a friendship which eventually, lead me to her closet.  Snapchat fam saw the video footage of this visit which featured copious sharp intakes of breath from yours truly.

A photographer and jewelry designer, take a peek into the wardrobe of Mia, which includes a heavy dose of her (and our) greatest weakness – shoes!

Saint Laurent Candy platform heels

Saint Laurent Candy Glitter Platforms.  Similar style from Office.

I just bought these. They look so disco like that I wasn’t sure about but they are so comfortable.

Saint Laurent Candy shoes

They had these in plain colors but I figured if I’m getting them, I’m going all they way.  They have them in velvet and I want them.


maxi dresses

Dress: MSGM

I found this dress at a sample sale. It’s kind of casual but not really.  I have a lot of ambiguous dresses that I have no occasion for but I love them.


Shoe closets


I’ve been more into shoes than bags.  I went a little Gucci crazy this year.  They are so good with their new designer.


Celine knot tie bag

Bag:  Celine

I don’t really have big bags except this one and the Givenchy Antigona.  I feel like everyone needs that one big bag.

wardrobe decor


I would describe my style as down to earth yet fashion forward.


chanel flats

Shoes: Chanel  (on sale)

These shoes are actually really comfortable for me.


Chanel mules

I don’t like wearing heels.  If they are too hard to walk in I feel like just taking them off.

Olympia la tan clutch bags

Columbia Le-Tan clutches

I love the book so much and I feel like these go with everything.  They do go on sale so you just need to wait for the good ones.  It’s good to pick a book that you know.   The new collection is Snoopy.

I wear them everywhere and with denim or shorts – anything really casual.


Celine shoes

Shoes: Celine

These are the most expensive shoes that I have purchased.  I think like $1300?  They are hand woven.   You can wear the black strap in front or put it behind your heel.  I wear them what I’m wearing now or with grey denim jeans. They look really good with culottes. My husband said they look like elf shoes but I don’t care.


celine shoes


It started with the Gucci fur slippers bought in the winter last year and by Spring I got others.

I feel like the Celines are very timeless just like their loafers.


Gucci red loafers

Gucci Princetown Eel loafers.  Similar loafers from Office.

I love that these are masculine but still feminine at the same time and they are really comfortable!
