"Window" Shopping: Dolce & Gabbana on Ruelala this week

Nothing but shoe and bag lust here.

Have you ever seen two pieces any more fun/beautiful? They were on sale, but you still don't want to know about the prices.

Dolce & Gabbana Paillletes & Mordore Sandle on Ruelala

I'm in love with these, as impractical as they are. These shoes reminded me of Dorothy if she grew up and became a Vegas showgirl. Awesome! On sale at $368 I could have been tempted. But I don't think any shoe is worth that price unless it's adorned with unicorn tears.

Dolce & Gabbana Miss Easy Way Bag on Ruelala

I'm a sucker for purple - especially metallic purple. Reader Sumo informed me this was her favorite item of the sale. I love it, but I also found myself asking the question - would I like it as much if it wasn't made by Dolce & Gabbana? Would I buy the same bag by a no-name designer? Probably not - from anyone else I'd be thinking the words "cheap" and "tacky". Odd that I don't hold the same distinction with the shoes - those I would still probably purchase if I found them made by joe-blow-whatever label (depending on cost of course). The Miss Easy Way bag was on sale for a wopping $1398.

As Sumo said "It's so unfair!"
