ZiGiny “Kerry” Satin Platform Pumps

Just as gorgeous and classic as their muse, these ZiGiny pumps are the signature shoes of a confident, stylish, and very intelligent girl, especially considering the price. Of course they are an investment, but when buying timeless pieces it’s OK to spend a little more than you would on trendier items. Just imagine how often you’d wear them, I certainly have.

Trend Watch – Oxblood for Fall

by Irina on September 17, 2012

Declaring oxblood as a fall trend might not seem groundbreaking or particularly new as it is more of a recurring, seasonal theme that comes back year after year just like leather, tweed, mustard and jewel tones. However, some classic fall trends seem to be favored more than others each year and for 2012 we place our bets on oxblood to be the most notable trend. Sure, “oxblood” might not sound quite as appealing as “bubblegum pink” for instance, but don’t let the name scare you off this rich dark berry hue that flatters every skin tone, is considered to have a rather mystic vibe yet is a classic and totally work-appropriate color. In order to spread the oxblood trend, we’ve compiled a list with a few of our favorite oxblood-colored items, fashion- and beauty-wise.

Who ever thought that a pair of shoes could be an architectural masterpiece? These spectacular heels by Giuseppe Zanotti seem to defy gravity with the help of an expertly crafted cantilever platform. They are designed to perfection, especially because if any part of them was off balance, let’s just say it wouldn’t be a pretty scene on the red carpet. I love how Julianne Hough wears hers with a modern, form-fitting black dress. Not to mention the gown’s slit strategically draws attention to her impossibly long legs and statement-making heels. Don’t quite have a celebrity’s wardrobe budget for fall? Not to worry, we’ve got a wonderful alternative for you below that will simply blow you away.

Chinese Laundry “Controversy” Curved-Wedge T-Strap Sandals

So this look-a-like by Chinese Laundry is a bit closer to my budget and design-wise, incredibly close to the original. The platform is a little longer and not as severe, but with less expensive shoes it is really best to get that extra square footage to provide you with better balance. I’d wear these in beige with a feminine dress in a fabric that flows, like chiffon, to offset the platform’s strong lines and structured feel. Then simply add a few well-placed, striking accessories with architecturally inspired details. If you love the black pair, think about possibly wearing them with a 3/4 sleeve minidress in a solid color and keep accessories limited to one geometric piece and a sleek clutch.

I usually don’t pay much attention to Gwyneth Paltrow off the red carpet. While she might look absolutely impeccable when glammed up for an event; I always thought of her off-duty style to be just so-so. Certainly not bad, but not outstandingly great either. Then I saw recent photos of Gwyneth trying to catch a flight in a pair of red Rag & Bone Newbury booties looking casually cool in a jersey longsleeve shirt, skinny jeans, oversized shades and – it’s all about the accessories here – a lustworthy Hermès Collier de Chien bracelet and the first Hedi Slimane for Yves Saint Laurent bag in mink. A winning yet comfy look in my book, so I tried to recreate Gwyneth’s relaxed airport look for less! See below for our budget-friendly Gwyneth look-a-like outfit!
