These Simo-Time sneakers look like orthopedic shoes lined with a teddy bear. Hmm, sacrificing childhood toys would eliminate the need for socks.
I'm not sure what bothers me most: the fuzzy lining, the "candy" color selections (also available in powder blue, black, and the world's worst shade of brown), the puffy lip around the edge, or the fact that there isn't a tongue so tightening the laces would be weird. On the right person in the right setting, I probably wouldn't give them a second thought, but just floating on my computer screen -- hideous!
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.
Why We Love It: Winter. Blarg. It snowed yesterday. It will probably snow today. I'm so done. I want to wear pretty shirts and not freeze to death. These skirts from Sandee Royalty make me think of spring, and anything that makes me thing of spring is super happy right now.
