Gearing up for my trip to the Twin Cities... This week's Pre-Fall shopping exursion will include all things warm and wonderfully toasty. Of those things, fabulous shoes and boots. A glance at this season's footwear trends...get ready for over-the-knee boots and nearly thigh-highs (think Stevie Nicks meets "Pretty Woman"). Loved them on the runways, but it's all about making them work for "real" people and real wardrobes. Dressing clients for everyday is a completey different matter. PTA ready? Perhaps not. On the other hand, incorporating over-the-knees with "night out" styles...totally edgy and downright sexy. The Look: pair with a minidress or dark skinny jeans, a black boyfriend blazer, and lots of "tough girl" accessories. Definitely pop it with a snakeskin or neon-colored clutch. This one is a must-buy!
Check out hotties Ciara, celeb mommy J Lo, and country artist Carrie Underwood in their thigh-highs.
