If you're a Vogue whore, you already know, but these are Sergio Rossi and they will be mine. They are so hot, I can't even stand it. A "painterly" trend was seen all over the place for spring, but if you don't want to don a dress that looks like bad art-student work, you could just slip these on for the most literal interpretation of the trend. There is something a little whore-y about these. Me likey. I am trying to cultivate the dirty secretary look, after all.
I was just at the shoe show and I would like to report back to you on an important issue:
The most beautiful women were wearing skirts that were very 50s and lady like - no pencil skirts, just a lot of skirts cinched at the waist and then poofing out a bit June Cleaver style. The best dressed list didn't see a single tunic-y dress. BUT, walking to the cab line at my hotel in Vegas, I saw - no joke - two groups of women, maybe 18 in all, ALL in their whoring best (it's Vegas after all) and every single one of them had a short little tunic-y mini dress on and together they put the final nail in the coffin for that trend. They looked a little ridiculous.
Also, I saw a woman in head-to-toe Tory Burch, low-heeled mid-shaft boot and all. Too much of mod/70s color block explosion for my taste. Just too formulaic. I know people love Tory, but please people - one item at a time. It's not Garanimals. You can't just buy the shirt that goes with the pants that goes with the shoes that goes with the enamel bracelet. It's not a costume.
