I'm kind of on the fence about these and need some guidance - are people going to actually wear them this year? I think they were starting to appear last year because they seem very Twilight-ish, but now even Jennifer Aniston is wearing them on a Star Tracks. (Someone needs to dissect this photo asap - holy 90's!)
I think the socks on display throws me off. It's kind of cute, but overall I'm not won over...yet Where would I wear them other than work (with tights) or to run errands? They also don't look like they would work with skinny jeans. Would I end up feeling like a witch?
One shoe I have considered buying is the heel loafer (my term). Real Simple did a menswear for women's story and featured this outfit.
I probably wouldn't have liked this style otherwise, but these shoes look great! Enlarged are some other options from Nine West and Marc Jacobs. These are not in my closet yet because I'm still on the hunt for the "perfect pair" - heel not too high, comfortable, maybe a tassel?
For occasions other than work and fall parties what are you wearing? I'm considering buying a pair of Vans this year. In high school they were the skater shoe of choice, but now I kind of dig the simple design and thicker sole look. Perfect for a weekend morning when you want to grab breakfast at Neal's only to remember that they stop serving bfast at 10:30am and usually run out of biscuits an hour before that. You need quick shoes for those instances.

The other night, we were watching This Is Spinal Tap, and I found myself craving a cigarette. "But I hate cigarettes!" I thought. Then I realized: Fran Drescher is just making smoking look SO COOL. More about this look: the off-the-shoulder dress = hot. Earrings: perfect. Makeup: perfect heavy eye/light lip balance. And her hair! Normally I'm really not crazy about a total pullback, ballerina-style, but the gold comb she's wearing in her bun really sets off the look.
And her attitude! See left for the classic Drescher 'tude, about cancer, holding an adorable dog in a t-shirt. Style file: case closed.

This is the 23042347 summer in a row that I have been on a hunt for the "perfect white dress". This is a nice contender, but I really love the bag.
This one kind of reminds me of the Ashley Olsen pic Clamz posted. I think Shania wears it well. Bonus it kind of has a "crazy mom!" feel.
Airport Style is all about layering for the stars. I like Gwen's color blocked shirt, but I really love her bag.
Fact - All fashion tumblrs written by girls in their 20's are obsessed with Olivia Palermo's style. I don't get it? She was always the out of touch mean girl on the Hills. BUT - I do like this outfit because it's really simple/I own a black shirt too!

My favorite part of clicking through star tracks on People.com is the paparazzi shots of celebs in the street! Come on, you wanna know what they are wearing or what they look like when they are not being filmed or on the red carpet. That being said, I'm always the most pleasantly surprised when I can stumble upon a picture of one of the Olsen twins.

Do you guys remember the 50's revival in the late 80's/early 90's? Yeah, me neither because we were merely babes in toyland/barely conceived.

Move over, Sandra Bullock in the Miss Congeniality preview. Step aside, promiscuous ladies in rap videos. Fashion legend Christina Brinkley has declared in no uncertain terms that women need to keep their miniskirts in the closet for the foreseeable future. Brinkley, universally considered the world's most attractive woman for over 25 years, had this to say about the trend: "To the fashion-conscious, minis can come off as overdone and just plain old."
Popularized by Jayne Mansfied in the early 40s, the miniskirt has long been considered a staple in female fashion and a strong symbol of woman's liberation from man.

And for any stubborn women out there who still insist on being sexy, Christina's friend Ms. Stevens said this: "If you're going to be sexy, show your shoulders," said Ms. Stevens.
What do you think GF' ladies? Is she on to something here?

My Camper fetish continues. I have actually wanted a pair of these for the last 6 years (since I first saw them in France, 2005) but can't commit.
These, however, are more realistic (if only because my size is in stock). Yet...
I also like these. They're cheaper than the other two, and fill my need for a brown lace-up boot. Not super crazy about the black zipper, though. Or the buckle: when will I ever embrace non-functioning utilities on shoes and clothes?? (answer: never!)
While I'm at it, when will the boot community figure out that many of their key market are students or live in urban areas and need to walk a lot, not in heels? I'm starting to feel crazy after scrolling through hundreds of stacked heels and stiletto winter wear.
Anyway, hello old friends! I already have you in my closet. Why don't we give up on this whole shopping thing and just...psych! You give me clown feet.
Finally, here are these. They are on sale and I think they're cute, if a little bit too light.
What should I do????? One or more? Zero or fewer (would you like those Doc Martens for $30? Size 8?)? Let's talk boots!
