As beautiful as these Missoni rain boots are, there is no way I would ever pay $31,000 for them. One woman from Tulsa, Oklahoma is completely overestimating the price of these boots on eBay in order to hopefully fund her daughter’s college education. It may be a little far fetched, but it’s still a thoughtful gesture. I think it’s important to note that the original price of these boots and any kind of Missoni rain boots are nowhere near this price. The Target ones featured above were only sold for $34.99.
Though the woman has received some negative comments, she still remains hopeful that someone out there will purchase these boots. After all the buzz she’s getting, she just might get her wish!
Best of luck lady!
I am so happy to announce that Target will be collaborating with Missoni as a part of their new collection. Items will be sold in stores beginning September 13th and will include a range of apparel for men, women, girls, and babies. Home decor will also be included in this collection with bedding, tableware, stationary, and more.
“Prices will range from $2.99 to $599.99 (!?), and most products will carry pricetags of under $40.”
Once again, I’ll probably post this on my calendar, but forget to check out the collection myself. My life is predictable.

There was an unbelievable amount of love for Alexander McQueen and Stella McCartney at this year’s 2011 Met Ball. I think out of all the Met Ball’s I have seen, this one has provided the most looks that I have fallen in love with. Well done everyone.
This year’s theme was in tribute to the late designer Alexander McQueen as the museum debuted a new exhibition in his name. Since there were so many attendees this year, I decided to post only my favorite looks (and a few others) – don’t worry, it’s still pretty image heavy!
Where was Camilla Belle this year?
Leighton Meester’s first photo from Missoni’s spring campaign have just been released and they are too cute. This doesn’t mean that she has won the battle for campaigns just yet though. That decision won’t be made until we get a peak at her Gossip Girl co-star Blake Lively’s Chanel campaign.
The campaign was inspired by the cover of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.
This fantastic shoot was done by one of my favorite photographers Juergen Teller. He is also responsible for all of the quirky Marc Jacobs ad campaigns as well.

Missoni and Converse have teamed up once again to bring to you their new kicks for fall. I love Missoni’s prints and I love how they have converted it into a Converse shoe because the look can be paired with just about anything. The shoes will be hitting the shelves in September and going for $200 a pop!

** I first created this post over a year ago and since then a lot of the images have become broken so I decided to fix some and add more because this seemed to be a crowd favorite. I don’t think I’ve ever seen it off of the top posts list to the left. Enjoy!
