Spotted at the Brooklyn Flea in Williamsburg on Sunday 10.23.11. While I didn’t actually see any tumbleweeds blowing through the lot, there was definitely some sort of spaghetti western thing going on style-wise. I mean, the neo-Navajo thing has been hot for a while now…but this was a whole ‘nother level of Ennio Morricone-soundtracked, Man With No Name realness. Clint Eastwood and Chuck Bronson as female fashion icons – who woulda thunk? xo
Walking through Soho with friends one morning last week, I spotted adorable Becky sitting just like this – she was taking a break across the street from the bookstore where she works. The heels are Marc Jacobs borrowed from a friend (“a long time ago…and now she’s going to see this!”)…and the boyfriend jeans were actually borrowed from her boyfriend – perfect!
I heart Miu Miu glitter booties! Don’t you just love ’em?? I mean they’re a little ridiculous…and they’re all sparkly…and they have that beautiful/silly curved heel…and they cost like $20 million dollars – all of which makes them highly impractical – which is exactly the point. EVERYONE who buys these feels like she’s treating herself – you can’t even kid yourself that these are wardrobe staples that you’ll “get lots of wear” out of. This is a fashion item that is meant to make the owner SMILE – seriously everyone who buys them probably puts them on and walks back and forth in front of their bedroom mirror grinning like a f-ing idiot! haha They’re pretty much a recession-proof item and should be taught at fashion schools during courses on creating consumer desire. Here are 3 real-life sightings that I shot on the street during Milan Fashion Week – September, twenty eleven. Have a great weekend everyone! xo
