Aviator lens. Sing it with me. Or maybe I’m just dating myself. For those of you who don’t know that lyric it’s from “’03 Bonnie and Clyde” by Jay Z and Beyoncé. It’s a good song. Look it up.
As the name might suggest, that song came out over a decade ago, and since then I have wanted a pair of Manolo Blahnik Timberlands for no good reason other than they were cool.
I thought my chance had passed and then Saks came out with two different exclusive versions. The traditional ones and grey ones with fur trim. I couldn’t stop thinking about them and asked for them for Christmas. I didn’t get them because … well … they were rather pricey.
Luckily, Christmas Day I did some shopping and found them at a huge discount. They are still on sale for a bit more than I paid if you are interested. My aunt got them for me as a combined Christmas and birthday present. Thanks, Debbie!!!
While they aren’t super warm, they are fashionable and comfortable and I loved wearing them on a shopping … er returning … trip this past weekend. I paired them with a short black skirt to allow them to shine and a pink blouse for a pop of color.
Oh, and the amazing Prada bag from Beyond the Rack that Mom got me for Christmas. Thanks, Mom!!! If you’ve never shopped beyond the rack before, check it out. They have great deals and even better customer service. I’ll feature the purse on its own coming up.
I will be wearing my Manolo Blahnik Timbs and channeling Beyoncé, because we all want to be like Beyoncé, for years to come.
Blouse: Escada // Skirt: Stella McCartney // Shoes: Manolo Blahnik // Handbag: Prada
