Get some booties…

10 Oct

Fall = boots. This fall = booties, the little sisters your boot collection always deserved. Choose daring shades or reliable neutrals. Embellishment options are endless: studs, spikes, buckles, laces or a spot fur.

Booties hug your ankles and accentuate your legs. Show them off with short skirts, ankle pants or flashy leggings.

I just purchased this amazing pair by Christian Siriano for Payless. (They’re even lined with leopard print!)

There’s also affordable finds at DSW and JCPenney. See below for more options and get shopping!

Christian Siriano: Spring 2012

Who doesn’t love Christian Siriano? The fiercest Project Runway winner of them all! Season after season, I cannot wait to see what he puts down the runway. And what makes him even better is that his shoe line at Payless makes it possible for die-hard, yet not rich, fashionista like me to own a piece of Christian fashion. That’s FIERCE.

Ok, so back to Siriano’s Spring fashion outlook…

1. Eye-popping color (reoccurring trend alert!)

2. Maxi skirts

3. Tailored capris and jackets

4. Whites and creams (mixed with eye-popping color!)

5. Siriano staple: Tulle, organza and feathers!

According to style.com, Christian’s inspiration behind this collection was Katherine Hepburn — a revelation that may leave some people scratching their heads. For a designer who won Project Runway on his love of feathers, pushing boundaries and avant garde. Yet, after looking through his pieces, he definitely made it work! In opening, his looks resembled a modern-day Katherine. Very simple and tailored in silhouette, yet bold and sassy in color and styling. Even the models’ hair (and sunglasses) mirrored Katherine someone in today’s fashion folio. Red, neon yellow, white and cream dominated the color palette.

Some of my favorite looks…the tight, striped tees paired with extra-long maxi skirts, his red blazer and the long, tunic vest cinched with a bright red belt and paired with a flowing yellow skirt.

As the show moved on, his looks got more bold, and good ole’ Christian came through. Fur and feathers, organza and tulle. Looks that pushed the envelope, but stayed ready-to-wear. Some of my favorite fashions for Spring 2012 thus far.
