Fall Trends - Part Une

After pouring over every September issue I could get my hands on my next several posts will be dedicated to fall fashion trends I'm loving and can't wait to incorporate once the weather starts to turn towards cooler temperatures.  This fall I can't get enough of chunky heeled booties with interesting textures and am worshipping a pair by Tibi in particular.  

1.Tibi  Perla Bootie $575

2. Zara Suede Bootie $89.90

3. Rebecca Minkoff Dalli Bootie $350

4. Jean Michael Cazabat Noni Short Bootie

Fashion Faux Pas

I think Cher really said it best:  "So, ok... I don't want to be a traitor to my generation and all... but I don't get how guys dress today.  I mean come on... it looks like they just fall out of bed and put on some baggy pants and take their creasy hair... eww... and cover it up with a backwards cap and like we're expected to swoon?  I don't think so..."

Today friends we are discussing why flip flops are unacceptable footwear and a fashion faux pas I see all too often here in Raleigh.  As previously discussed here you all already know my dislike and disgust towards the dreaded flip flop.  Men of Raleigh, as perfectly illustrated in the above picture please try and drill into your brains that going out in public like that is unacceptable and no one, I repeat no one should think it's something you can leave the house in.  

Whether they be sneakers (not athletic shoes boys), loafers or the most beautiful pair of Salvatore Ferragamo Monk-strap slip-ons all of these are a step in the right direction.  I promise you you'll feel happier, more confident and become much more aware of how you're perceived by others once you start dressing like an adult and not a drunken frat boy crushing PBRs at 11:30am in the morning.

Cartoon Nation

Wario Tee // Zara Pants (old) // Zara heels (old) // F(P)rada Sunnies

Back in 7th grade cartoon t's were the must have at my school.  My Little Pony, Spongebob Squarepants and Care Bears were everywhere when I walked down the hallway.  I am kicking myself I ever threw those bad boys away and couldn't resist scooping up this muscle t when I bypassed it on the racks, nevermind that it was the only size left was a large.  The fact that it's practically neon only confirmed my decision.
