The City Sandal

Mar 31 Shoes1

It’s the kind of sandal that can stand up to a day in your busy life, sturdier and more covered up than your basic flip-flop. The looks range from gladiators to cut-out boots.

Get the look: Celine, Marni

The Spring Boot

Mar 31 Shoes2

We’re seeing more boots for spring and summer than we have in years past. In general, they’re lighter and brighter than boots you’d see in fall or winter. Elevate the look with studs, fringe, or colorful details.

Get the look: Miu Miu, Prada

Film & Fashion Buzz: Rock of Ages June 28, 2012

Synopsis: “Rock of Ages tells the story of small town girl Sherrie and city boy Drew, who meet on the Sunset Strip while pursuing their Hollywood dreams. Their rock ‘n’ roll romance is told through the heart-pounding hits of Def Leppard, Joan Jett, Journey, Foreigner, Bon Jovi, Night Ranger, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Poison, Whitesnake and more. — (C) Warner Bros

THE CONCEPT:

Tutu dresses have had a recent resurgence most notably featured in various brights at high school proms… Rock of Ages is set during the time when this dress style first burst on the scene, and here we are, realizing that they never really left (thanks Madonna!)

TROMP L’OEIL BOOTS, the look of shoes and hosiery combined to become a boot:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

GLAM UTILITY BOOTS, the laced up work boot/desert boot is revitalized with chic details, wedges, turned-down cuffs, fur elements, menswear details, and contrasting laces:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BONDAGE BOOTS, strapped and laced and cut-out – almost ‘choked up’ within their laces and straps:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ATHLETIC/TENNIS SHOE-INSPIRED BOOTS, a flat rubber or crepe sole, laced up front, often in leather, velvet, or suede… or inspired by figure-skating to wrestling with blades, faux distress marks, and careful smudges:
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SHORT AND LONG BOOTS, very short booties to over-the-knee ‘Robin Hood’ boots are often re-styled with high heels or wedges this season… look for patent leather, glove-leather in colors, vintage details like eyelets and buttons, ankle straps, and wing-tip embossing:
