Fashionable People, Questionable Things. | Monday Shoe Porn: Happy Birthday to Erin | Fashionable People, Questionable Things.

L-A: Monday is rearing its ugly head yet again (every friggin week), so we’re going to try and make it a bit better with some Shoe Porn.  This week belongs to the adorable birthday girl Erin (CBC news code name: Emma – start watching at about 18:14), who had on a ridiculously great dress at the SATC2 party.  She definitely brought the pretty to the party.

Anyway, Erin has recently returned to the East Coast after spending a few years (and more than a few dollars on shoes and clothes) in Calgary.  When she’s not blogging, she’s also the Halifax Chapter Director for The S.W.A.P. Team and is busy making plans to bring a huge clothing swap to the city. We will be sure to pass on the details of this event.

I love that some of her shoes were photographed on a stovetop. It made me want to come up with some cheeseball pun like “Erin’s shoes are cookin'”, but I refrained myself (lucky you!). Her shoes are pretty hot though. And from the sounds of it, her sister also has a good shoe collection – maybe Erin will get pics of those as well.

And speaking of Calgary (in a roundabout way), I need to take a moment to say Auf Wiedersehen, Good Bye to a Halifabulous reader (and a fellow King’s alum) who will be moving there. Maybe Jill will take pictures of her fantastic shoes as she unpacks and share them with us.  Halifax will definitely miss her, her style and her parties.

Ally: Erin is one of my favourite new people. Not that she is a new person, but she is new to me. Like my fantastic new DKNY pants purchased last weekend from Frenchy’s. Not that I am comparing Erin to a Frenchy’s find. Except I sort of am. To sum? She’s adorable, fun, witty and totally chic. I adore her shoe collection, and am so happy her porn lands on her birthday. I bet her Dad never thought that sentence would be on the Internets!

Happy Monday, readers. J’taime. xoxo

    Comparing someone to a Frenchy’s find is very very high praise. Which reminds me – I think it’s time to pull out the old Chanel headscarf (Frenchy’s circa 1999!)…

      You must send a photo of this scarf!! I’m doing a post of Frenchy’s finds and am on the hunt for readers’ best grabs.

        My BEST Frenchy’s find was actually a Valentino couture velvet jacket with a black feather trim – but I sold it on Ebay for $30. If I had that today, I’d totally be wearing it to see Lady Gaga next month. At the time, I was all … “where am I ever going to wear this??”

    The stove is the only space in my apartment that isn’t covered in clothes. And it’s not because I use it, either. I just figure it’d be a fire hazard to pile clothes on it.

    Are there any good Frenchy’s in HRM, or other good thrift shops? What are the best options without truckin all the way to Digby? I need to get in on this ish.

    The only thrift shops I’ve been to in Halifax are the little ones downtown where things are still pretty expensive. I want, like, $4 finds if I’m going to be wearing someone’s secondhand stuff, I don’t want to be paying $25 for USED PANTS.

      Frenchy’s on Almon St is not bad for thrifting. Not as good as the Frenchy’s in the furthest reaches of the province, but not bad. The only trouble is, if they recognize the brand they will charge you more for it. They charge far too much for Mexx (although, some of it still has tags – just too much by Frenchy’s standards).

      I say we rent a party bus for a Frenchy’s day trip. The bus that has the “dancing” poles in them. DAY OF FUN.

    I’m a big fan of Guy’s Frenchys in Dartmouth.. the Guy’s chain of Frenchy’s usually carry more and better quality stuff than the other Frenchy’s stores. Colleen mentioned there’s a new Value Village over there somewhere? That’s pretty reliable, I usually go to the Bayer’s Lake location. And then the Salvation Army across the street from me knows my name. It’s a good workout searching for the good stuff, and plan to burn more than an hour.
