{cocoa glass & sexy shoes}


Recently came across these unbelieveably lovely, shimmery cocoa glass pearls by Miriam Haskell . . .

. . . and beautiful shoes that may very well rival my favourites by loeffler randall . . .
33 Notes
  • Those pearls are ungodly gorgeous…wow.

  • Goodness! The Miriam Haskell would look SO gorgeous with a simple black dress… such a beauty!

    By the by, cocoa glass pearls aren’t real cultured pearls, right? Why are they called ‘cocoa glass’..?

  • Those cocoa glass pearls are gorgeous! AMAZING find!

  • Love the shoes! They are fab .

  • Wonderful glass pearls!!

    As for the shoes…very stylish but not for me as I have issues with my ankles…I’d fall all the heels…


  • The last pair on your list of favorites by Loeffler Randall… DIE for.
    I want them SO bad.

  • That necklace is gorgeous! Not so sure about the shoes — but I definitely admire anyone who can wear them! Good for you.

  • !! You love Loeffler Randall? Oh my absolute favourite! I love you more haha ;)

    Yes… those shoes are rather heavenly, I must agree! I love the black ones.

  • The shoes! The shoes! Especially loving them in the shimmery champagne color. That panel of gold on the heel is simply stunning.

    Oh what I would give to have a pair—and to have a suitable event to wear them to, of course :)

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today and for your lovely comment!


  • The pearls are ravishing!

  • Everytime I see shoes that I’ve never seen before I’m always amazed at how many different ways a shoe can be designed!! I just can’t wear shoes that high. 3″ is my maximum height :)

  • Rhea – the pearls are made of glass, and “cocoa” refers to their colour.

    E – you’re so sweet – thank you :)

    citysage – the gold and champagne pair are my favourites as well.

    Colour Me Happy – the possibilities are endless!

    As always, thanks so much for saying hello, and a warm welcome to new readers. Hope you’re having a great week.

  • they are sooo pretty, both…. esp the pearls.

  • I think a woman’s jewelry collection should not be without a beautiful set of pearls. The more the merrier!

    Do you know where i get the heels from? =)

  • Thrilled by the Thought — thank you! {It’s a bit of an addiction}

    Anonymous — the shoes are by Devi Kroell — there’s a link below the image — click on “beautiful shoes”

  • Adelene — apologies for taking so long to respond — it’s been hectic week, trying to catch up after the holidays. Would love to give you the “Style Notes” font name, only it’s been ages and can not remember off-hand, but will look in my files and let you know as soon as I find it . . .

  • The juxtoposition of classic pearls and the ultra-modern shoes is fantastic. Exactly the unexpected look I long to carry.
