Shoes On The Brain
If I had to describe my style, I'd have to say schizophrenic.
I don't at all mean that in a disrespectful way, it's just the best way to describe my look(s). My wardrobe is really, truly all over the map. It looks like three people share my closet. Stuffed inside are classic J Crew pieces, frilly Anthropologie-wear and edgy stuff like studded jackets and a top with cut-out shoulders.
For more proof, just look at the shoes I'm currently loving:
• DV by Dolce Vita "Taiz" wedges ($93). These serve up a double-whammy, dipping into two of the biggest trends: military and tribal. The rugged look is so cool.
• Dansko "Rae" clog ($150). I went through a brief, sensible shoe phase during which time I rotated through four pairs of Keens. Yeah, I'm over that. Danskos are supposed to be incredibly comfortable (health professionals and people who spend entire days on their feet swear by them) but they're so....clunky. I *heart* these clogs, though, mostly because of the wicked zebra print (there's even leopard). They look more streamlined than the full-back Danskos. And, of course, they're clogs, which I cannot get enough of these days.
•Ash "The Gun Sneaker" ($120). These are just plain fergalicious.
Yes, the one consistent thing — as you may have noticed from the price tags — is that I always gravitate toward the pricey stuff.
