shoes 2014............

what a girl wants......always SHOES!
anyone who knows me knows i love shoes. i love classics but tend towards something a bit more adventurous and sometimes impractical.
but living in aspen (snow, ice & cobble stone streets) & traveling a lot for work & fun means i need to welcome practical styles too.
here are my favorites from spring '14 collections
from top left:
martin margiela, santoni woven wedge, santoni wedge, ann demeulemeester booties, valentino ankle straps, christian siriano pumps, sophia webster ankle ties, givency booties, givency ankle straps, giada forte wrap sandals, saint laurent booties, alaia plexi heel, addidas by stella mccartney, saint laurent booties, santoni brogues, valia sandy cays.
*all shoes not linked are available on net-a-porter.com
NOW........
here are 4 styles that i can't understand. for me personally, i just don't understand the idea of spending $550 on tennis shoes. let alone, tennis shoes that are made to look dirty OR look like the tennis shoes sold in the grocery store for $4.99 when i was a kid. and a $570 version of water polo shoes? now this isn't about price but more style. i am known to spend a ridiculous amount of money on shoes. BUT, in my defense i choose wisely because most of my shoes i have for at least 10+ years. some of my favorites were so forward that 20 yrs later i still get stopped when i wear them.
i think shoes should be interesting, creative and outside the box at times but i also think they should look good on your feet. 
what do you think? and if you love these tell me why....i might be swayed!

chanel & the grocery store

i loved this! 
what about you? i thought it was a fantastic play on the brand and logo.
the play on the hair, socks with shoes....you do see this look in a grocery store but it's safe to say it's not chanel. 
in aspen i do tend to see couples that look a bit like this around the holidays at the market
i am obsessed with this!! the basket, the image, the cuffs....perfection
what i love about karl lagerfeld is he looks as if he has no sense of humor but i think he must be hysterical in a very dry and understated way. you know those people who can deliver a punch line in such a way you're not sure they are making a joke but it's the funniest thing you've heard in a long time.
when i worked at chanel in the late 90's i sold water bottle holders, whoopie cushions, holsters (damn i still wish i bought that with the brass chanel gun!) and all sorts of the ridiculous. i love camp and karl surely deliveries when it comes to accessories.
love

kirsten owens.....don't call it a comeback

the amazing kirsten owens 'the reluctant supermodel' from the 90's
is clearly still on the scene. at 44 years old she is being booked for ad campaigns for givenchy, yohji yamamoto, marc jacobs, helmut lang, chanel, versace, fendi and so many more.
she has walked so many shows both expected (marc jacobs, jil sander, alessandro dell'acqua, yohji.....) and the unexpected (missoni, oscar de la renta, anna molinari....)
she was scouted in toronto at age 16 and within a year was walking the runways of paris. she was an iconic face of the 90's, known for her androgynous look, and can be seen as the representative of the anti-establishment. 
you can't call it a comeback when you've consistently worked for ALMOST 30 years! and don't chip away at it when we all know models tend to be 'too old' when they haven't even started living. i am amazed at how timeless her look really has been & continues to be.
covers: check out numero october 2013 cover....how is this 43?
editorials: check out dazed & confused september 2013
here are some of my favorite images (and some i still have the tear sheets of from back in the day....to tired of lugging magazines from apt to apt to house...so i started tearing out my fave images)....
AND this just sums it up PERFECTLY by vogue.com writer

who is this silver fox?

 

i saw this picture & had to google to find out who she is.... i mean, not many can rock a pair of $6k chanel multi chain boots, lv bag (thanks for choosing the cool blue trim) with a fringe poncho, grey t-shirt & somehow....it's not overkill? i had to know....clearly she was in the fashion business but i wanted to know what she did because the effortless ease of her outfit, makeup the insanely cool hair = idgaf and i was intrigued. was she a stylist? editor? writer? turns out sarah harris is fashion features director for british vogue.

i am obsessed with her hair & style. i love that she had not colored her even though it started turning 'silver' not grey (too mundane a word when it looks this good) when she was 16. i read that she played around with wash in & out colors in her teens but then decided it was too exhausting. LOVE THAT! considering my temples were 'silver' (clearly grey is too boring for me too) since i was probably 18.and by mid twenties just around my hair line (see why i LOVE bangs? less time at the salon). luckily, at 45 they just exist there. BUT, sarah's hair looks so modern and she looks beautiful. perhaps if i had lighter hair because i would think the grow out process would be a NIGHTMARE for someone like me with such naturally dark hair.

anyways, on to her amazing style......below are some of my favorite looks. i love the accessories & cool statement pieces worn with denim or less fussy pieces. doesn't she seem like a modern day more rebellious carolyn bessette

phorum phi architects asked souchi, covet, 02, paul evans, baron perrera & lees pearson to participate in a fashion event. of course we said yes & loved that proceeds would benefit windwalkers. gotta love when food, wine & fashion meet,
especially when you include a dj & the setting is forre fine art gallery
i had just gotten back from new york for a week of buying for the chicago & aspen stores for fall 2014 & showing the souchi fall '14 collection. so tons of dinners, appointments and too many late nights.....so exhaustion had set in. 
but, what a way to jump start into march....with fittings & looks styled for the event.
here are some back stage & out front looks from the event.
