Fall is here! Fall is here! Well, I mean fall isn’t HERE –although it was a brisk 95 yesterday instead of 107– but it will be fall someday, and that someday will be here soon…ish, and thank be to God and all the heavenly host because I am bored unto 80 proof tears of everything in my closet.
The big color story I’m feeling (GOD I feel like such a jerk for saying that! “Color story I’m feeling” geeze, this is why fashion people should be drowned at birth) is this chilly slate/petrol blue with lots of gray in it.
I just want to coat myself in it from head to toe and feel sophisticated and urbane and sliiiightly jaded in a way that sort of harkens to the cold strength of 80’s and early 90’s European fashion without being too much of a pastiche.
Here are some of my favorites:
Kate Spade Women’s Kamille Pump. This color is heaven in satin.
FLY London Women’s Lark Mary Jane Pump. Kind of funky and Old World cobbler-y. Fun for running around in a pair of jeans and still having a bit of quirky style.
Seychelles Women’s Kiss At Midnight Mary Jane Pump. I love a good solid MJ for fall and this seems fresher than those boring burgundies everywhere. GOD I’m tired of burgundy and black patent leather.
Martinez Valero Women’s Zoie Pump. The perfect New Year’s Eve shoe, lighter but still cold.
Samanta Women’s Viv Pump. Available up to a size 14, it’s surprisingly wearable thanks to the solid banana heel (which still looks killer) boxy toe and hidden platform.
ZiGiny Women’s Preppy Pump. Fab fish-skin midheel with a nice broad toe box. It’s a neutral, but better.
