Sweet escape

These past few weeks have been very tough and unfortunately I've been neglecting this baby.The reason that I started this blog is very personal. Currently I'm in my first year of architecture school and well it's a very draining experience not only mentally and physically but also emotionally. Well it really didn't seem like the right time to start a blog but well I started it. Now why do I have a fashion blog if I'm studying architecture? Well the answer is that what I really want to study is fashion design. The universities in Puerto Rico don't offer a bachelor's degree in fashion design so I'm hoping a degree in architecture will help get a basic start in design. My future goal is to finish my degree and move to New York. Once I move to New York, I'll start working on a fashion design degree. Now the purpose of this blog is to remind me of my goals and to prevent me from losing sight of what really inspires me. I'm trying to somehow channel all my extra creativity here. Well now that I got that off my chest let's move on to something more interesting.... shoes!!!

It seems like these days everybody has cooler shoes than I do so I have decided to put together a little wish list.Hopefully, I can save up enough money to score one of these babies. Since it's almost winter boots are a definite must even though it's hot as hell here( I still wear boots because I love them).
The Zoe boot by Sam Edelman
I didn't know, but these shoes are actually look-a-likes of a Balenciaga boot. And well they look pretty close to the originals even though they're half the price(they're around $200).

The Lita by Jeffrey Campbell
I must say that after seeing these shoes all over the internet I have grown to love them. I like the chunky heel because I think it gives it a retro feeling and after reading all the comments on how comfortable these shoes are they have definitely made me think twice about them.

The Balenciaga Cut-Out Boot 
I have saved the best for last. I think these boots have the perfect combination of edgy and modern. I'm absolutely crazy about these boots but not about the price (they're around $1,000...sigh). There are look-a-likes out there but they don't really compare. Jeffrey Campbell has a similar style called the Roscoe but it's shape is slightly square.
