I'm not really a floral person. In most cases, I flat out hate them, but there are a select few florals that woo me. That said, I'm already coming at these Mojo Moxy "Petals" pumps with a heavy bias.
It is not my bias speaking when I say there's a lot going on here --bright colors and a pattern and three dimensional riveted plastic flowers. But they are a classic shape and a modest heel. They're also on sale for $45-$59. Maybe I need to see them in an outfit. A little shift dress and heavy eyeliner, perhaps? How would you wear these, or do you think they should be thrown in a fire?
I love Miu Miu's harlequin themed show from Spring Summer 2008, especially this sweetly sexy striped mini dress. Kensie created a cute green version that's more wearable for everyday life. It's $118 at Macy's and perfect for spring. Now if I could find an inexpensive version of that show's teacup heels...
Thank you 3.1 Philip Lim! You've appeased my co-desires for wearability and an edge of funk. Love the ruffled sequin tops. Love the layered zips. Love the ruffled shoes. The shoes!!! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Anna Sui was fabulous Anna Sui with all the prints and colors and tribal influences. Of course, I'm biased in favor of anything that looks like a hippie-gypsy-pirate. Happy! Happy! Again, the shoes are amazing. Kudos to her also for sending out happy models, because smiling should never be out of fashion.Vera Wang, always one of my favorites, was just as sleek, romantic and modern as I would hope. I always like her neutral palette with occasional splashes of color. She used lots of sheer fabrics in this collection, but it's more ethereal than daring. The shiny details also keep things exciting. Image source style.com.
