Think Pink

October 3, 2016

This has been a confusing fashion month. Between the “see now, buy now, wear now” concept, and all of the designer shake-ups, it’s hard to tell what season it is, and what house the collection is from. With all of the uncertainty, one message came through loud and clear from Paris this weekend: You’ve got to have a pink dress.

While I would hardly call pink the color of the season, it seems that it is de riguour for a dresses. And special ones at that.

At Celine, Phoebe Philo showed a dramatic pepto pink dress with a capelike effect coming from the draped hemline.

For Pierpaolo Piccioli’s first solo collection at Valentino, pink played a major role. Here, a pleated dress gets a bright accent at the neckline.

There were also 1920’s inspired shapes, layered over deeper tones.

In contrast to all the retro fluidity, Piccioli added a shocking pink cape dress, in a more modern and structured cut.

John Galliano went sheer, with this ladylike silhouette shown over matching pink lingerie.

With new designer Gemna Gvasalia of Vetements at the helm, Balenciaga kept it bright with thier modestly cut pink dress, slit up the side and shown over purple spandex boot | pants.

At Givenchy, Riccardo Tischi showed a simply cut hot pink satin dress layered over a sheer tank dress.

What Do You Call a Female Pope?

March 15, 2013

By now you’ve seen our post about the new Pope, Jorge Mario Bergoglio and our recommendations for his Papal footwear. But for a moment, let’s just imagine that the Catholic Church displayed some unique open-mindedness, and the new Pope is a woman!
Now we can really look at shoes, y’all!!

Chances are, she wants a little height. I mean, those flowing robes can swallow up a petite girl. Perhaps she might rock some Valentino stilettos, with very Papal gold studded heels.

We all know that Popes prefer Prada, so these high platform sandals with a cut out wedge could work well for summer, provided there is a pedicurist at the Vatican.

Snakeskin Loubies are a status symbol and our Pope-ess might love the elegance of this sky-high heeled, peep toe pumps with a hidden platform. Christian Loubitan’s signature red soles are said to be good for a women’s soul, so we say “hallelujah” for this choice!

Brian Atwood’s strappy zip front sandal could be a great way for the Popette to feel feminine and dare we say it, sexy. It’s the equivalent of wearing silk and lace lingerie under a conservative business suit… it’s a guilty pleasure only she knows about. Those vestments are pretty long, and hey, your secret is safe with us, girlfriend.

Sometimes a girl needs comfort, and these Tory Burch ballerinas are iconic these days. The gold logo on the front kind of resembles a cross, doesn’t it?

These shoe choices may not be needed now (although nobody knows what goes on behind closed doors) but it’s fun to dream. We are looking forward to the day that pink smoke blows from the Vatican chimneys, symbolizing the election of the first female Pope.
