SHOE PORN THURSDAY

In every woman’s wardrobe, there are far too many LBDs and LBHs (Little Black Heels), and reasonably so.  If you’re ever in a pinch, they’re the perfect go-to items.  However, with so many options to choose from, I’ve found I have to be fairly picky when it comes to buying more- they have to be my new absolute favorites, or they’re out.  Luckily, I have a pretty open mind, and I’ve found another pair I’m smitten by…

Meet the Fendi perforated leather and suede boots:

Fendi Perforated Leather & Suede Boots, $1,395

Street Style: 7 Quintessential Fashion Accessories

The most popular staples in fashion right now:

celine phantom & valentino rockstuds

1. The Bag:

The Celine Phantom Bag

celine

The days of the street style starlet clutching her Chanel 2.55 quilted bag will never be gone; however, the oversized (and mini!) Celine Phantom bag somehow turns any regular outfit into a fashionable masterpiece.

2. The Heels:

Valentino Rockstud Heels

From diamond-encrusted to black leopard print calf-hair, Valentino Rockstud heels are a street style starlet’s best friend.  The cage gives off major sex appeal, while the pointy toe elongates legs, all while looking amazingly chic, which makes for a heel that men and women both adore.

3.The Cashmere Scarf:

Burberry Scarf

Cozy and chic, this scarf is classic.  It looks perfect paired with a Burberry trench, and perfectly edgy when combined with a leather jacket.

4. The Belt:

Hermes ‘H’ Buckle Belt

Originally we were coveting the Birkin, but now there’s an obscenely long wait list for the Hermes “H” belt.

5. The Silk Scarf:

Alexander McQueen Skull Scarf

This classic skull scarf is the epitome of Alexander McQueen chic.

6. The Watch:

Bulgari Serpenti Watch

This modern reinterpretation of Elizabeth Taylor’s vintage Bulgari watch quickly became the new arm party.

7. The Random Coveted Accessory with Eyes & Fur:

Fendi Buggies

These little grumpy looking furry buggies quickly sell out every season since they emerged on the street style scene, and are only getting more and more coveted.

What’s Trending: The Wide-Legged Pant

The wide-legged pant has been mentioned here and there in the fashion world.  However, this elusive pant style has not been seen very often on the streets or in the runways, until recently.  I’ve been on the fence with the trend, wondering if it was the new Harem Pants, a trend we never thought would make it that (unsurprisingly) didn’t.  However, recently debuted Resort 2015 collections showcased the style everywhere, from Fendi to Tory Burch.

With new styles and prints, designers showed the wide-legged pant is a new spin on workwear, as well as casual when paired with a crop top.  These new designs have made this style much more wearable.

Eye motifs have been trending everywhere in fashion as of lately.  From patterns to bold eye-shaped hardware, it’s all in the eyes.  Kenzo nailed it with their eye-patterned tops, scarves, and, well, everything, and Delfina Delettrez has some amazing jewelry starring diamond-encrusted eye motifs this season.

These Eye Pumps by Chrissie Morris are right on trend, and the neutral cream color complements the funky evil eye perfectly.  These pop-art inspired pumps are balanced by the ladylike closed toe and thin 4.5 inch heel.

What’s Trending: 5 Quirky Statement Pieces

Recently, I was showing a dear, old friend my new Jonathan Adler Vice canisters, of which mine read “EYELASHES“, “PROZAC“, AND “PEROXIDE“.  She told me how she loved how my funky style has remained over the years, despite my high fashion proclivity.  Immediately, I replied back, stunned, telling her that high fashion is quirky.  I have always thought of fashion as an art form, and these pieces below are the perfect example of it.

Considering DVF’s Spring 2013 collection show at NYFW in 2012, in which her and Google co-founder Sergey Brin showed Google Glass for the first time ever on models on the runway, it is not surprising that DVF would be the first designer to unveil Google Glass for sale.

The video above shows DVF & Isabelle Olsson as they chat about the evolution of the Made for Glass collaboration.

They are on sale at net-a-porter.com and Google.  Mr. Porter, Net-a-Porter’s male equivalent, also put t also put three models of Google Glass for men for sale on their website, priced at $1,650.

Meet the modern fashionista’s equivalent to the glass slipper, the crystallized Rockstud slingback heels by Valentino.  The signature Rockstud style became huge after being introduced in Fall 2010.  They marked the beginning of a more edgier Valentino, a large change from the feminine, ladylike style of the original Valentino line.  There has been dozens and dozens (hundreds?  thousands?!) of variations of the Rockstud shoes, from flats to kitten heels to stilettos.  I own two pairs (one black and one in “poudre”), and I have to say, they are super sexy, comfortable, and also make every outfit look fashionable.

These in particular caught my eye, with crystallized leather and pyramid studs inlaid with pave crystals.  They would be the perfect complement to an evening gown, or paired with a feminine mermaid skirt.
