SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Giannico

Giannico came onto my radar this past year after coming across a pair of Andy Warhol banana heels (there’s also a Picasso-inspired pair that’s to-die-for).  With whimsical, fun-loving designs, styles, and lots of bright colors (for my inner 5-year old), I’m completely smitten with the designer, Nicolò Beretta’s designs.

My latest loves are these yellow, blue and white mules that are simply perfect for Spring.

Giannico, $878

Pair them with a midi skirt for a brunch date, or with a pair of white culottes to accentuate the bright pop of these mules.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: DSquared2

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…

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Fendi

Fendi has some truly innovative and unique shoes.  These kicks in particular totally remind me of Star Wars (in the best way possible).  The strappy cage detailing is made of metal, which contrasts against the leather upper paneling to create a fantastically industrial looking heel, worthy of the likes of street style starlets, such as Miroslava Duma or Anna Dello Russo, at NYFW.

Pair ’em with a super structured dress, like this one from Proenza Schouler, and a funky visor, like this Missoni one, for the ultimate cool-girl outfit.

Best Of NYFW as of yet: Prabal Gurung Spring/Summer 2014

I’ll admit- I may be a bit biased due to my obsession with retro fashion, but Prabal Gurung’s SS 2014 collection is absolutely breathtaking.  Fifties-inspired, midi-length skirts and dresses were one of the main hits, but with an edge- see the backpiece below (although questionable, I do not believe that is not an orthopedic device….).

However, don’t let the racerback piece freak you out.  See my favorite picks from the collection below.
