Shoes: A Girl’s Best Friend

In love with my new Nicholas Kirkwood shoes.
 

I was lucky enough to find these shoes from Kirkwood’s Spring 2013 collection seriously on sale. Fortunately, he has pulled them out again for Fall in some gorgeous new colors. (Although, you know, I surprised myself and have grown quite attached to the neon.)  These might be some of the most comfortable shoes I have worn in a long time.  They are fabulous, but still easy to wear.  Pair with a white t-shirt and jeans (yes, that was my outfit today).

Have you noticed that the British make the best shoes?  Why is that?  They blow the competition out of the water.

The Fashion Collaboration Done Oh So Right

Posted: September 26th, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: fashion, stuff to buy | Tags: , ,

Prabal Gurung x Target? Poor fit. Disappointing quality. Prints and colors that weren’t quite right. 3.1 Philip Lim x Target?  In many ways, more of the same. Although I have to say I was pleasantly surprised to find I absolutely love the patterned shirt dress. One of my best purchases in a long time. All of those who didn’t buy it are missing out. The real winners and losers on the fast fashion designer collaboration front have started to emerge.  And while Target has a large enough customer base that it still draws big names, it is H&M that repeatedly delivers quality.  So I think the true standout of the Fall/Winter 2013 season will turn out to be Isabel Marant x H&M, due in stores November 14.  November can hardly come soon enough.  Marant is the queen of casual cool, wearable style with edge, and every single piece knocks it out of the park.  And she has brought her best to the table for this collaboration.  Simply put, I need every single piece!

(U.S. prices have yet to be published, but I have included the UK prices to give a general ballpark sense of what the collection is likely to cost.)
