1. Leg Warmers Under Criss-Crossed Shoes
I apologize profusely about the quality of these pictures, or rather, these pictures-of-a-picture. Since it is one of my pet peeves, I try to avoid photographing pictures unless absolutely neccessary. Let me tell you ... it was absolutely neccessary. I searched high and low for this Chloé ad (from February's edition of Harper's Bazaar), finally pronouncing it a lost cause once the tips of my fingers started aching. Anyway, it's not exactly the ad I'm infatuated with, but the foot-region. Also known as the shoes. I apologize again at my near-constant lame attemps at joking.
I know that wearing leg warmers with heels is one of the most popular trends this season, but I've never seen it done like this. Leg warmers under a pair of criss-crossed strappy sandals. I adore it! The double texture and color-blocking practically sends a shiver of pleasure down my back. (Note: I actually did just shiver after typing that ... oh, the power of words.) This is one style I definately want to try during the seasons of spring and winter (Frigid snow, my strappy sandals and I can take you any day.)
2. Blumarine's Spring/Summer '10 Tie-Dye Collection
Do you agree, or are these colors not the perfect way to bring in the season of spring? I think so! Another thing I love about Blumarine's new collection is the sheer contradictory element of it. We all know that a scarf is usually used to give an outfit a burst of color (and to keep warm, of course!). The silk scarves in this collection are the same color as the outfit it lies on top of, creating a layered and textured look rather than a shock of a different hue. I love the way they were wrapped, too! This collection, however, does have one downfall: how am I supposed to wait for the warmer months to come when the terrific tie-dye of this collection is making me crave it so badly?!
I hope my sudden overload of posts doesn't overwhelm you! I know, I know ... I go from barely posting once a week to three posts in two days. Damn you, inconsistant self! I suppose I just felt the need to write. After all, I do have to sift through some of the millions of thoughts swirling around in my head right now; soon enough, words will be coming out of my eyeballs! Have a fantastic weekend!
