Whenever I think the ’90’s trend has had to have played its role in fashion recently, and is on it’s way out, it seems to show up in yet another item, and, alas, we have another grunge-era comeback.  Luckily for me, I freaking love the 90’s, so I’m always giddy and nostalgic about such occurrences.  The latest comeback happens to be these shiny, patent bubblegum-pink platform leather sneakers from Hogan.  They remind me of the phase I went through as a wee young thing where I only wore Volatile platform sneaks & my friends coveted my rad shoe collection.  Come to think of it, not much has changed except my shoes got a lot higher and more expensive (so basically, just the Courtney Love treatment).  Joking! (but not really)….

Enter, the Sportivo sneakers from Hogan.  Channel your inner Baby Spice and wear ’em with knee-high socks and a mini-dress, or pair ’em with super flared denim jeans for a sporty chic look.

Baby Spice is happy because she has platform sneakers & an egg pod chair.  You, too, can be happy.  Get your egg chair here, and then buy me one, please.

Tom Ford is, and always will be, the sexiest designer known to the fashion industry to date.  He proves this time and time again, and honestly, the fact that he is able to make a pair of denim boots sultry is only further evidence.  These patchwork denim and leather knee boots from his Fall 2015 runway collection are a perfect blend of bohemian and badass.

This Week’s Most Coveted

Pantone has officially dubbed the sultry Marsala as the color of the year.  The red wine, burgundy-esque color evokes images of its earthy roots, while exuding a refined class and sophistication.  It blends well with muted tones, as well as bold and light neutrals, as it is a universally flattering color for fashion, beauty, and interiors.  The color is also appealing to men and women alike.  The color is both dramatic and grounding at the same time.  Check out the inspiration board for Pantone’s favorite color of 2015.

DSquared2 is one of those super awesome labels that just exude a certain cool attitude, with a unique IDGAF kind of feel.  And these skeleton heel ankle boots are totally in on it (and kind of perfect for the Halloween season…).  The outsides of the boots have a shoelace-inspired lace-up closure that reminds me of equal parts Frankenstein and football, which isn’t an easy feat to pull off.

Wear them with anything and everything during any months ending in -ber.

The Long Awaited Bucket Hat Comeback

There’s really no easy way to say this, so I guess I’ll just get on with it… As many of you witnessed at NYFW, the bucket hat is back.  And BCBG really wants to make sure you are aware, as every model at the Spring/Summer 2016 show in New York adorned one of the 90’s inspired floppy, patchwork hats.

Anyway, I think it’s safe to say, the real question on everyone’s minds is: Where can I score one a pair of mohawk headphones from the Desigual show? Sigh.

Really though, the bucket hats can’t come as too much of a surprise, considering the 90’s are (and have been back) in full force over the last few years.  Since you might as well give into the throwback Sugar Ray-inspired fashion trend, here’s some picks to shop below.

Quick side note: BCBG had an amazing playlist.  Like “almost forgivable for bringing back the bucket hat trend” -kinda good.  I digress…

While many people adore Gucci for their iconic bags, for me, Gucci has always sold me with their classic, yet very on-trend designs.  I’m currently obsessed with these Gucci Glitter Pumps, featuring a chunky 2″ heel.  The balance of board-room style loafers with the sparkly glitter exterior is serious enough for work, while adding on a stylish and fun whimsy.

Pair ’em with a pair of cropped trousers for work, or a ’70’s inspired mini skirt (preferably this adorable Emilio Pucci ZigZag Leather Mini Skirt….) for a chic weekend look.

Can Flip-Flops Be High Fashion?

Charlotte Olympia Teams Up With Havaianas To Create Fashionable Flip-Flops

co havianas3

What is it about the (unofficial) national sandals of Brazil that designers and fashion insiders alike love so much?  This upcoming collab is one of my favorites: Charlotte Olympia teams up with Havaianas to create perhaps the most fashionable flip-flop ever.  The Spring/Summer 2016 collection will debut this upcoming February after a preview at Milan Fashion Week this September.

co havianas

The collection will include 3 flip flop styles and a beach towel.  The best part?  You can snag a pair for only about $40, rather than the usual high price tag for Charlotte Olympia shoes.  The collection is inspired by her signature kitty motifs, retro pin-up style, and, of course, her quirky, tongue-in-cheek attitude.

The designer, Charlotte Dellal, is daughter to Brazilian model Andrea Dellal, which may have contributed to one of the reasons for the collab.

Animal prints have never really been my thing.  I blame all of the zebra prints I saw growing up that made adults look larger than life (such an unforgiving print, sigh…).  However, in the last few years, snakeskin and crocodile prints have been quickly crept into my life and I can’t pretend I’m not absolutely obsessed.  On that note, leopard print has also quickly become a guilty pleasure of mine.  I love, love, love leopard print & Louboutin red mixed together, along with deep, ruby reds and burgundies.  Of course, you can’t go wrong with leopard print and black, and, as our dear fashion icon Kate Moss has shown us over the years, it always looks badass.

Enter, these Francesco Russo fur detail leopard print sandals, shown above.  With an adorable fur mohawk on the heel, these are a perfect sandal to transition into the fall with.  Match ’em with a pair of baggy athletic harem pants, and maybe this adorable Salvatore Ferragamo Sofia satchel (if you really want to go above and beyond).

There is something utterly girly and adorable about pom-pons and fringe that gets me all nostalgic about my adolescent days of riding around in a colorful bicycle with hot pink, glittery pom-poms on the handlebars.  So, naturally, when I came across these Rochas Fringed Sling-Back Pumps, adorned with gold and pink fringe on the toes, and an gemstone embellished high heel, I immediately fell head over heels (pun always intended…I can’t not.).  If your inner child is also smitten for these pumps, you can feel really good about purchasing these $1,194 heels, as they are marked down from the original $1,190, so you’re technically saving $796.  Well, just look at you, being all economical and such!
