SLIDE ON IN :: THE SPRING SANDAL TREND

This weekend over drinks, my girlfriends and I had a very deep conversation that stemmed from the irony of us having fought so hard for years to rid Seattle of its Birkenstock hippie stigma, only have the sandals make their inevitable (?) return to fashion this year. (Insert eye-roll here.)  The discussion quickly turned to the similar […]

    Aaaah I can’t deal! I really never liked those shoes…they just remind me of my high school boyfriend after basketball practice (which is an entirely appropriate time to wear them). But with those gorgeous outfits? seriously? Nooo. Haha I do however like the leather ones you liked too, but that’s about as far as I can imagine going! So funny to see this trend :)

    I’ve been wearing soccer slides post-work for over 25 years. While incredibly comfortable, I won’t be sporting them anywhere except the gym.

    This is like THE MAIN SUBJECT in fashion world these days – should we wear them with sock or without them? Some fasionistas agree with socks & high heels too.
    I have to tweet this, I’m dying to know what others think :)

RED + LEOPARD (AND A REBECCA MINKOFF GIVEAWAY!)

red+leopard for the wardrobe coco+kelley

Dressing up for Halloween last week got me thinking how silly it is that some of us only take fashion risks one night out of the year. Don’t get me wrong – I’m certainly not encouraging too short skirts and body paint on an everyday basis (or even on Halloween for that matter), but I can’t help […]

SHOP THE PALETTE :: BRIGHT RED + DEEP OLIVE

Whenever a new fashion season comes along, I try to go through all the shows for trends that really stand out to me – including color. I remember saving this one from the Karen Walker FW13 show purely for that reason – the combination of a deep olive green and bright bright red – offset […]

    So glad you did a post on this! I am sad when I wear this color combo and people say it reminds them of Christmas…such a stunning combination together. I want those gloves and those cords now!!!

      people lack imagination sometimes ;) i think wearing it out of season is easier – the closer it gets to christmas, the harder it is to pull off without people thinking it somehow looks ‘holiday’. forget ‘em!

STELLA JEAN :: WAX + STRIPES

stella jean1

Whenever I’ve traveled in the past, I’ve brought back textiles from my adventures abroad. When I was in Africa, however, I managed to get so flustered at the local markets by all the offerings, that I somehow came back without a single scrap of fabric. A major regret, and a perfect excuse to go return! […]
