Shoe sale season is upon us and I have been busy snagging some of my favorite pairs at a discount, including these Alaia python platform sandals in a lovely bottle-green color.  I love python in shoes and I find it to be extremely comfortable and I love it even more in green.  Alaia shoes are always at the top of my wish list as well so when these went on sale marked down from an astronomical $2700 to a still astronomical price of $1320 I decided to take the plunge.  I had been eyeing them for months and months waiting for them to go on sale.  The detailed whipstitching is something that really makes this shoe stand out from the rest.  Besides these Alaia sandals I also bought the Giuseppe Zanotti leopard platform sandals you saw a few posts back.  I try to pick my absolute favorites and not go too crazy because now they are coming out with all the fall shoes.  There is never a shortage of shoes to buy. 

These metallic woven high-waisted shorts by Kenny were a full price snag off of Shopbop.  I was attracted to the color of them and pictured them in the Caribbean.  That is how I end up buying so many shorts.  You have seen me in a Kenny Missoni-like skirt as well as the Kenny Guadalajara shorts.  I cannot get enough of Kenny clothes and whenever I see their stuff it is selling out like crazy.  The price point is just right as well.  The shorts are high-waisted, making them perfect for all the crop tops that are out for summer.  They also have a little metallic burnout thing going on in the butt area, which I find to be pretty interesting.  I paired them with this Alexander Wang ribbed crop sweater tank that I snagged for 30% off on Shopbop.  This little sweater is quite impractical, but I love it anyway.  It has an 80s vibe and I like the mock neck.  Understated sexiness is what I think of when I look at it and when you pull it out of the packaging it looks like it might be the perfect sweater for your 8 year old niece.  Alexander Wang keeps doing something right and I think these shorts were the perfect match for his little sweater.
