Some may say I'm addicted to black ankle boots. But really, you can never have enough - Chelseas, pumps, block heel, you name it...except for wedges. Not a fan. I digress. I am definitely putting these Modern Vice Handler Black Crocodile BootsOn The Menu, because how can you resist? Dropped for the holiday season, I need to add these to my black ankle boot collection. A modern twist on the classic Chelsea. Asides from the shape, the crocodile texture makes the boot special. The heel offers a fully functional, everyday boot that will carry you from season to season.
I must say, well done Jordan & Jensen Adoni of Modern Vice.
When Zoe Kravitz was asked, "What should every woman own?" her response was on point, "Timeless pearl necklaces. Mine were handed down from my grandmother. You can wear them with everything from Ts to ball gowns." I've always loved pearls, and although in the the shadows for a period of time, the pearl is being revived. Chanel takes it to the next level with these over sized pearl statement pieces for Spring/Summer 2014. They make the statement, "bigger is better" true. The Chanel pearl pieces will blow up on the scene just as Celine's oversized chain pieces did. The only thing is... I don't know if I can wait until Spring!
My love for the Sophie Bille Brahe La Pyramide de Perles collection came up when I saw the above image in Costume Magazine. The collection plays with the classic pearl however there is a modern, minimal edge. The sleek design has you longingly to look at each individual piece in the collection - like an art object. Here is an array of my favorite pieces, along with images from the look book.
How fast time goes by. Just last week was World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto. Coming from New York Fashion Week last month, I must say, there is a vast difference between the two. None the less, I love to see what Canadian designers are bringing to the table for next season. Get a rundown of what went on in the tents from my post on The Style Spy.
Thank you to all the bloggers, magazines and photographers for capturing a couple of my looks during the week! Look forward to seeing you all next season.
The turtleneck started sneaking its way back into our lives last Fall but you are bound to see it in full force this year. There are two things you should keep in mind so you don't end up looking like a g-ma.
Keep this high collared trend simple: If you are wearing a turtleneck in the first place, you might as well embrace it and not create any distractions. It all goes back to the saying, "Keep It Simple Stupid"!
Think about layering: I love the look of a slip or button down under a sweater, which means the same applies with a turtle neck.
Don't be intimidated: Try this trend with a skirt to make it more feminine or pair it with relaxed trousers and sneakers.
