Why Did You Wear That: Shoe In
Written by: admin | Why Did You Wear That?

best fall bootsOnce you’ve procured all of this fall’s must have fashion trends, you’re going to need the shoes to accessorize with.  One of my greatest struggles in life besides fitted sheets and the mental battle between being rail thin or indulging in gnocchi, is putting together the perfect outfit only to realize I do not have the perfect shoes to complete it.  This has led to lots of late arrivals, pissed off friends, and missed appointments.  Pretty sure this complaint would fall under the hashtag of “first world problems.”  In any case, this fall you are going to want to round out your wardrobe with boyish brogues, combat boots, boots that go beyond the knee, statement booties in addition to basic black, and a pair of sneakers that thank heaven almighty do not include the word “wedge.”  Below find my picks for fall’s best footwear.

Why Did You Wear That: F*ck It. We’re Done with Pants.

celebrity sheer dressesCelebrities just can’t seem to keep their pants on and this time it doesn’t involve hacked photos, the  iCloud, or Miley Cyrus.  This past week alone, a slew of celebrities have forgone covering up their bits and pieces by wearing barely there ensembles leaving very little to the imagination.  From Miranda Kerr to Cara Delevigne, sheer panels gave us peeks at their toned thighs, tummies, and places Pilates pays off.  Even North West got in on the action while accompanying mom, Kim, to the Givenchy show in Paris.  Why shouldn’t a toddler have a custom creation when sitting front row at Paris Fashion Week?  Step your game up Gymboree.  This nearly nude trend is nothing new though, as we saw here on Erin Fetherston two Octobers ago.

kim kardashian givenchyBut before you figure me for head conductor of the Hater Express, let us take a moment to recall when I wore this For Love & Lemons dress sans pants last winter.  Brrr.  While, part of me fears for humanity’s eyesight as we all know that once something is worn by a Kardashian, it’s basically considered mainstream and one can expect to see it in every mall in America, there are some upsides to this trend.  One such silver lining is an opportunity to showcase those Barry’s Bootcamp legs you shelled out $30 a pop for.  Another, of course, is good ventilation, which we all know aids in the prevention of the epidemic known as thigh chafing.  Lastly, pants are just a hassle anyway.  The first thing I do when I get home is remove them, so let’s just cut out the middle man and stop wearing pants all together. F*ck it.

Why Did You Wear That: Seeing Red

fall trends 2014 sweater dressIt can be tricky trying to decide what color to wear with red.  When I was younger, I had an incredibly strong aversion to wearing black with red.  To me, it came off as a little cheap.  I don’t feel as strongly about it now as I did when I was sixteen, but I still prefer other options over basic black when accessorizing with bold red.  Well then, what options is one left with when black is eliminated?  You could opt for luggage colored brown, or even a soft taupe.  Another great option is grey (also a fall trend).  In this instance, I had forgotten I even had these deep oxblood Pour La Victoire boots hidden beneath my bed (that’s how we store shoes here in New York).  As soon as I’d wiped away the dust bunnies, I recalled that I also had a vintage bag from my mother that was of the same shade.  Once a complete faux pas and something only worn by women donning their Sunday best for morning mass, I threw caution to the wind and got wild by matching my shoes to my bag.  Another option right on trend would be to wear a leopard boot or carry a leopard clutch (thous in this instance, I’d opt for one or the other).  It may seem a little bit “The Nanny” but I actually believe despite what men say, that leopard is sort of a new neutral.  Besides, did Fran not get her man?

Speaking of my man and matching, Smitty celebrated his eighth birthday and one of his doting aunts was sweet enough to bestow him with his own scarlet sweater.  She pays attention to fall trends too.  Pretty much Smitty and I became this fall’s Justin and Britney, Katy and Riff Raff.  Sure, my sweater is just about the same size as Smitty’s and technically it’s just an oversized jumper as opposed to an official frock, but it’s not the first, nor will it be the last, time wherein I wear something not as it’s intended.
