shoe spaz: welcome to the jungle

1. Jeffrey Campbell "Daytime Platform" at Nasty Gal
2. Melinda Black Mesh Point Shoes at Top Shop
3. Ego And Greed "Inside Africa" at AKIRA
4. Jeffrey Campbell "Puffer" at Sole Struck
5. El Vaquero "Fiorato Tall Moccasin" at Free People
6. Alexander Wang "Tempest Knotted Suede Sandal" at The Outnet


 Do you go wild for shoes?? Why not let your shoes go wild for you!  I pulled some of my favorite safari inspired kicks that are sure to excite your step.  The Daytime Platform is pure sex... pure classy sex ;).  Leopard print is an ongoing trend.. it comes, it goes and it comes again.  Shall I make another sex reference??.. I'll leave that one to the voice in your head; let's focus here people!  Pair these babes with skinnies for a hot foxy look or go boho with a flowy tunic or retro bells.  #lovethem

Feet can't handle the height or want to bring the trend to work, the Melinda's are your route! Pointed toes are the shape to go and bring a more dressed up look rather than round and casual.  Let the black mesh zebra print work as a neutral and pair these with everything from dresses to pants to shorts to skirts of any color.

Step "Inside Africa" with these Ego and Greed glories of God.  Not sure if I have the words to tell you why I am obsessing over these quite yet, but the more I see them the more I LOVE them.  This shape is definitely making a presence this season and next.  Cropped pants, long skirts, even funk up your work slacks :)) #getit and #justdoit You really will not regret it. 

A delicate kick with a little edge.  The Puffer sandal comes in a variety of colors and is great for everyday.  I want them in every color combination and I want to rock them with my black skinnies and a tshirt :))

Another tummy tingler... the Fioratos.  Amazeballs these are indeed.  Great for everyday casual.  Moccasins?? Hell yes. #getit

Alexander Wang calling... at 60% off!! :O The Tempest are a great way to go if you want to enter the jungle but not up for the prints.  You will find yourself pulling these out of the closet time and time again, season after season.  Its a fabulous color and a fabulous buy.  Did I mention they are 60% off??

just zoe you know

:If you don't Zoe... Now you ZOE:

Celebrity stylist and Bravo super star Rachel Zoe, if not already, needs to be one of your fashion icons. Time and time again she has drenched our favorite stars in fabulosity; since she has started her own clothing line, with a quick stop to Nordstrom you too can be soaked! 

Above, I showcased some of my favorite pieces that are worth the buy.  The 'Nikki' Cardigan is a great go to piece.  I adore over sized sweaters.  I buy one every season and with each one I find new ways to wear them... Skinny jeans, leggings, short shorts, thigh high boots, casual flats... throw a furry vest over it and wear it as your Fall jacket, put it over your comfy clothes on a laid back day... flaunt it over your birthday suit (thats a j.k. orrr...)  Get my drift?  

Let's move on over to the 'Marianna'.  I am OBSESSED.  Need I say more?? #getit!! 

Both the 'Pamela' and 'Audrey' Boot are the make of an essential boot for the Fall and even great for end of Summer with jean shorts or a little cocktail dress.  However, let's stay focused on Fall since that is the season of wear and tear for these bad boys.  Even with animal prints, these shoes still work as a neutral.  Personally, I would wear them everyday with skinnies but would LOVE to see them paired next to a maxi skirt with a side slit, something like this.  

The 'Hudson' pump, hard not to love.  Hippie chic and made to flaunt with a pair of bells like the 'Campbells'.  Suede upper with leather lining and soles, the price point is well... right on point. And for the 'Campbell' Flare Leg denim... they are going to fit like a gem.  With front and back seams running down the legs, they will flatter and elongate your stems, especially if you are wearing the 'Hudsons'!  

Definitely check out Rachel's entire collection.  It is full of great, functional pieces that will instantly upgrade your wardrobe.

now rock it out

A. Americana Denim Jacket at AKIRA 
B. Ella Character Drawing-Oversized V Neck at WILDFOX COUTURE
C. Jordan Skinny Jeans-Lipstick at NASTY GAL
D. Spiked Ear Cuff at NASTY GAL
E. Jeffrey Campbell Brazen at SOLE STRUCK

:Rock it out with these "rock femme" Summer pieces that will transfer right into Fall:

:Love it or hate it the denim jacket should be one of your staple pieces over the next few months. And, don't just pull your old Abercrombie and Fitch one out the closet... time to update!  Rugged, torn up or even embellished with a lil U.S. of A. pride, you need to #getit!

:Graphic Tees always go a long way and this will definitely not be the only one you see me post on here.  I absolutely love them, especially fabulously soft ones like the ones we can get from Wild Fox.  My T-shirt motto is to always be purchasing new ones, get rid of them rarely and wear them with everything!

:Patterned pants might just be a current trend, but that is why spending under $100 is a great way to go.  They are in now, so wear them... they're hot! 

:Spiked accessories... #justdoit.

:And last but not least the metallic shoe has found us once again.  Fluid metallics will be seen and are said to be the hot trend of Fall 2012.  Runways such as Marchesa and Philosophy Di Alberta Feretti featured some fabulous metallic items at New York Fashion Week.  A metallic shoe or handbag is a great route to go if you are feeling a little shy about it and will get you the most wear out of the trend.
