Slide Show

June 3, 2016

The pitter patter of little feet will be coming to an office or restaurant near you. No, we don’t mean someone is expecting a baby. We’re talking about slides and mules, those late 90’s throwbacks that make a rather annoying sound as our feet slap about when we walk.

This time around, there are lots of variations to the theme. From pancake flats to chunky block heels, there’s one thing to be sure of… they’re back!

Low heels and closed pointed toes make these mules almost seasonless:

Phillip Lim, Prada, Opening Ceremony, Gucci

Wide crossed straps, embellishments and chunky soles take “shower shoes” to the next level.

Chunky heels and peep toes in colored suede, denim or floral prints modernize the mule and are the perfect warm weather option that’s not too bare:

If last year was about the Birkenstock, this summer will be all about the designer Dr. Scholl:

Whatever shape you choose, it’s time to slide into summer!

Colorful stripes were all over the catwalks for Spring 2016, and they continue to be prominent in the pre-fall collections as well. There is something cheerful and optimistic about these multicolored stripes that make us dream of the warmer weather ahead.

Shop Your Closet

March 16, 2010

The international Fall fashion weeks have just wrapped up and they are filled with great wardrobe update ideas that you can implement now.
As the recession has forced many of us to shop our closets, it seems that old clothes sometimes resemble, well, old clothes. But this fashion week showed us lots of great ideas to rework the items we have into the ones we will covet next year.

Case in point:

Dolce & Gabbana showed great cardigans, wrapped to the side and secured with a brooch or kilt pin. Almost any old cardigan will do, as long as it is not too long. Simply wrap it instead of buttoning it, and use a decorative pin to hold it in place.

We mentioned in a previous post that socks with sandals were a big trend for Spring.

The Fall collections were filled with almost every major (and not so major) designer showing socks with pumps, or maryjanes. We have taken out some old shoes and recycled them into fabulosity with just the addition of a simple black trouser sock.

Ferragamo showed a beautiful 1970’s inspired collection featuring shorts and cable sweaters, with a big shawl thrown over it all. We took some of our out of date wool pants, cut and hemmed them and turned them into the shorts of our dreams. Worn with tights, boots and a chunky sweater with a jacket or wool wrap on top, we are rocking a new look on an old budget.

Ah, Marc! We admit that the proportions of the Marc Jacobs collection initially struck us as a tad matronly. But after several looks, reviews and a grueling week of reporting on fashion week trends, we started to see it’s beauty. Taking an old Mui Mui skirt that hits below the knee, a belted turtleneck and a knee length coat, we recreated the look with a proportion that emulated his and suited our just under 5’5’ body to a tee. We wore it with the requisite heels and socks, and felt like a million bucks!

There are so many great trends emerging that can be achieved with more ingenuity than investment. Find a look you love and see how creative you can be in pulling together an outfit that is fresh and fashionable without buying anything new.
