I love shoes. Most girls do, but I obsess over them, have dreams about them, and even dabble in the shoe industry. If there are a pair that I’m absolutely freaking out over, I will do everything in my power to make sure they are mine. A little over the top, I know, but I just can’t get enough shoes. There are a few different details that I’m into right now: bows, tassels, and a clog heel. I have never really been into bows that much, but lately I’ve been finding new ways to wear them. I like pairing a really girlie shoe with something that is the total opposite, such as a motorcycle jacket or a pair of vintage Levi’s that are completely worn. I’ve mentioned how much I’m into tassels, and just about every shoe I dream about has them. Alexander Wang’s wedge heel with tassels for S/S ’10 is to die for, and I recently purchased my everyday Fall boot complete with tassels by Rachel Comey. I’ve been wearing them with socks and dresses, my Corpus sweats, and even cut-offs (we still have some warm days in LA!). I like the modern takes on preppy tassels, and how easily they can be incorporated into my wardrobe. A while back, I wrote about the No. 6 over-the-knee clog boot that had me in a shoe frenzy. But, I’ve decided that I can probably get more use out of a clog that sits right at the ankle, or just at the knee. Swedish Hasbeens has a knee high clog boot in the sickest shade of blue that I am LOVING. And of course, I’ve found the ideal ankle high clog from No. 6 in black leather, completely lined in shearling. Louis Vuitton and Chanel are getting a lot of hype for their parade of crazy clogs down the runway, but I’m not one for a lot of bells & whistles on a shoe; I prefer the simplicity. Sure, wearing a clog might be the furthest thought from the minds of some, but I like the unexpectedness of them. They’re a little kitschy, but I like to interpret them in new ways. I guess you can say I like a little contradiction when it comes to my shoes.
