Most of the time, I’m pretty much the opposite of a hipster. I don’t wear Toms or Warby Parkers – not because I don’t think they’re good causes. Because they’re ugly (well, Toms are, anyway). I like Top 40 radio and think it’s fun when people jump on the same bandwagons as me.
But, sometimes, finding a trend before it becomes a trend does make me feel a little high and mighty. And these shoes did just that.
I bought these pretty teal heels from DSW a few years ago. The next season, this look – the twisted satin knot – was EVERYWHERE – flats and heels alike. And you’d really be surprised at just how many things this color goes with. For a while, these were as much a staple in my closet as black shoes are to a normal person.
I like to think of myself as fashion forward. It may not be true – but I like to think of myself that way.
In this jumpsuit, I also like to think of myself as giving Marisa Tomei a run for her money…clearly, I just live in a world of delusion.
Fashion Tip: Jumpsuits are like maxi dresses – not universally flattering, but if you’re willing to put in the patience and effort, you can definitely find one that works for you. Pay attention to pattern and lines (where the waist hits, how the neckline sits, if the pants are cropped or wide leg), which together can make or break an outfit, even if it technically “fits”.
