SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Nicholas Kirkwood

Nicholas Kirkwood is one of my favorite designers, and Pac Man is one of my absolute favorite arcade games.  So, when I came across these ‘Eden Pacman‘ heels by Nicholas Kirkwood, naturally, it was love at first sight.

Check out these beauties below.  These would look amazing paired with straight-leg, high-waisted trousers (preferably in the colors red, yellow, or blue) and a chic black cropped sweater.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Nicholas Kirkwood

What better way to wear a pop of color than on your feet?  

Colorblocked shoes were seen all over the Spring 2015 runways, from blue & pink at Versace to green, blue, pink, & yellow at Burberry.  Nicholas Kirkwood shows off his unique style with an orange, yellow, pink, & blue pump adorned with a chunky silver metallic heel.  Although it seems at first glance it would be difficult to pair such a colorful shoe with many outfits, I’ve found that the more colors in a shoe, the easier it tends to be, as each one of the subtle colors blends perfectly with a solid color outfit on top.  Or, pick one or two of the colors, and match it with a printed dress in the corresponding color, and voilà!  A perfectly styled outfit that’s right on trend.

Weekend Wardrobe: The Ultimate Stylish Travel Packing List

Travel on My Mind

 

Traveling and fashion go hand in hand, so why is it so difficult for even the most experienced world travelers to find the perfect traveling outfit and accessories?  Throughout my experiences (good, bad, and forgetful), I’ve found the perfect essentials and tips to make traveling in style that much easier.  Enjoy!

White + Warren Classic Cashmere Two Way Topper, $275

Eddie Harrop The Voyager studded textured-leather weekend bag, $1,205

This black leather weekend bag is perfect to carry-on your essentials, as well as a change of clothes in case you are going far.  Sometimes changing into a new outfit over your layover can feel like the next best thing to a shower.

3.

Diane Von Furstenberg Silk Jersey Maxi Wrap Dress, $575

Diane Von Furstenberg Silk Jersey Maxi Wrap Dress, $575

Any one of DVF’s wrap dresses are ideal for traveling, as they are comfortable and easy to throw on.  I love the maxi dresses, as you can hide a pair of tights underneath (in case you are always freezing like myself), as well as throw on a pair of flats underneath and for all anyone will be able to tell, you could be rocking sky high stilettos.  As a bonus, wrap dresses are versatile enough to look great over a swimsuit on your way to the pool or beach, as well as for the day and night.

These bring me back to a time when travel was absolutely glamorous…not just LuluLemon and a pair of birks on the plane.

5.

CHI Home Chi Tourmaline Ceramic 3 Piece Travel Set, $99The perfect travel-size hair tools so that you can leave more room in your suitcase for that extra pair of statement heels.  Plus, no matter if your staying at the Ritz or Holiday Inn, hotels never seem to have a decent blow-dryer.

Nicholas Kirkwood Textured-leather point-toe flats, $395

Nicholas Kirkwood Textured-leather point-toe flats, $395

Chic enough to spruce up an outfit, and comfortable (and easy) enough to slip on and off at security.

Sophie Hulme Twin Keyhole leather clutch, $445

A small clutch with detachable straps is perfect for traveling, as you can use ’em as cross body bags for sightseeing (so much easier than toting around a handbag), and as a clutch for a night out.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY

In recent times, every time I see flats, the line from 30 Rock comes to mind where Jack is describing Avery, and says, “And she always wears high heels, because, according to her, flat shoes are for quitters.”  Nonetheless, these quirky flats from Nicholas Kirkwood are obviously so darn cute they are exempt from such a statement.  Enjoy, and have a great Thanksgiving!
