she’s a gem.

well, howdy.

the dvf opal. taunting me mercilessly since i first saw her. actually i take that back.  i first saw her in brown.  and she is lovely in brown.  but i am in possession of many many pairs of fabulous brown shoes and have no need for another amazing pair, especially with a wooden heel.  then.  i saw them in black.  (brief sidenote: i am at a loss as to why good black shoes are so hard to find.  a lot of times they look cheap, or a tad too precious.  i have long been bereft of a good statement black shoe.)

so happy to have you on my feet.

the opal in black?   it was love at first sight.  and as the ever magical bleubelle boutique (here in savannah!) had them in stock, i got to visit them, try them on, and silently will all would-be shoppers to not buy the last pair of seven and a halfs.


and then evan (and mitchell: creative director of bleubelle, master of wit and hilarity, and project runway alum) intervened and worked a little magic and the opals were mine!

zipped in.

well, not technically mine yet as they are a birthday gift.  but they are in our apartment, awaiting a wrapping job and good hiding place, ready to lay dormant for the next month until my actual day of birth.  however, since evan is such a dream, he allowed a photoshoot to commemorate the opals coming home from the boutique to live with us.  before he hides the shoes skillfully.

you're just too good to be true

can't take my eyes off of you.

opals + savannah grey brick + cold glass of chardonnay = happiness.

can't get enough.

night vision back view.

i am a lucky girl and feel as though this birthday will be nothing short of fantastic if we’re kicking it off with the opals.  evan is the best.

if you’re in savannah it is imperative that you stop in to bleubelle…not only for the dvf shoes, but a masterfully curated selection of clothes.  if you’re not in savannah and you too want the opals to come live with you saks, shopbop, and a number of other retailers carry them.

xo, anne

  2. i cannot type anything because i am seething with jealousy.
    thanks. thanks a lot.

    (this is meant to imply how much i love them. and you. and you in them. but, if they go missing…well, i probably took them.)
