As of last night, it’s official — we can no longer get away with anything shorter than a mid-calf boot, until this massive amount of snow melts (then in that case all of our shoes will be ruined, regardless). Tall boots seem like a simple piece of footwear, right? There are a ton of options, they’re practical, they’re [sometimes] stylish…but I haven’t always found them to be an easy thing to shop for.
Do you ever look through the couture shows (or if you’re lucky enough, admire them from the front row) and think wow, I wish I could wear that. Well now you can (sort of). Because couture isn’t as unattainable as we might think…
When it comes to jewelry, do you go for costume or fine? Or perhaps mix it up? I’d say a majority like to keep it mixed, which is exactly why designers are starting to dabble in both categories. So now if you want a $150 bracelet or a $1,500 bracelet…you can get it from the same designer! HALLELUJAH!
Balenciaga City. Givenchy Nightingale. Proenza Schouler PS1. Chanel 2.55. What do these all have in common? They’re classic handbags, signature to their designer. But fashion seems to be moving in this direction where we don’t necessarily need a big designer name attached to our bag to make the investment. The perfect example of this is what I like to call the new classic — M2MALLETIER.
Ever since my discovery of these dainty Gabriela Artigas earrings in Sydney last February, I’ve been hooked (literally) on hook earrings. As the months go by, I notice more and more designers getting on board with this. Whether it’s a bold statement (like what Delfina Delettrez and Givenchy are known for) or something much smaller, these types of earrings are having a moment. So why not embrace it?
