Guess Sandal For Spring 2010

Loving this stiletto sandal by Guess in White.  White is naturally such an innocent color but the zippers add an interesting twist to the equation- not to mention the almost 5 inch heel. The GUESS Women’s Defiant Platform Sandal is comfortable given how tall it is. Refuse to give in to boring style [...]

Footwear with a masculine/feminine balance for Fall ‘10

One of my favorite designers, Diane von Furstenberg’s (DVF), fall look is a bit more masculine that her usual style- especially for footwear. Think oxfords with some feminine touches.

I’m liking the lace up touch in pink! Very DVF.

Trends for Fall 2010

Apparently, calculating the trends for the next season when people, like retailers, are buying for Fall now is some sort of equation, like the quadratic formula, or pi.

Yes, this is true.  Apparently, there are a bunch of monkies that sit around in a room making calculations about market trends and they use that [...]

Giuseppe Zanotti Women’s Bootie is THE boot you want to have for those cold couple months before you switch to sandal season.  Why? because its cool enough to wear down with skinny jeans and is long and warm enough to pair with a skirt or even better- spring 2010 trend- booty shorts.  That’s [...]
