Do You Shootie?

Do You Shootie?

You can never go wrong with lace, mesh, or sheer when it comes to shoes. I’m all about simple elegance when it comes to fashion but the Shootie has made a definitive mark… Both on the super trendy scale as well as the classy timeless spectrum. And my ultimate favorite Shooties are by Oscar De La Renta and Jimmy Choo. They are modern, chic, and can complete any plain outfit with elegance and style. Although the shootie is not a new kid on the block, the laced up, meshed, or sheer shooties are definitely the hottest trends for Spring 2012. Pair it with your bandage skirt or dress it down with a nice pair of skinny jeans/capris… And you’re set… Not to mention, they are so comfortable!! I personally don’t like too much color… When you wear a lot of different colors, your asking for the wrong type of attention. Instead, pick two tone neutrals, or the ‘in’ colors this spring – fresh tones … Here’s a few fab looks that I fell in love with.

Boots to the rescue

If you live in the DC area, you are probably used to having an umbrella close by at all times because no matter what the weather channel promises, there is a pretty good chance it may rain. My favorite thing about rain, or about the only good thing that comes out of rain, is I get to wear my rain boots! I feel that rain boots are a must have for every closet. Do you really want to wear your nice leather or suede boots, or god forbid your brand new beige boots that you just spent half of your paycheck on at Bloomies? Lets face it, even if you find an old pair of tennis shoes to wear during a rainstorm, they wont save your pant bottoms from being plastered with nasty wet street sludge. Save the stress and avoid looking like you just came out of a waterworld flick – go out and get yourself a nice pair of rain boots. I prefer Hunter because they really are not only reasonably priced, but offer a wide selection of customizable options.. They have really cute designs, and they  are perfect for rain and snow. I’ve stepped into a foot of snow in mine and came out unharmed. Jimmy Choo paired with Hunter to create a line of fabulous rain boots, but as far as I know, the only difference is the Jimmy Choo Hunters have a leopard print inner lining to some that may be worth an extra $100. I also love all the different wellie socks you can now get to accesorise your rain boots and keep your feet warm because rubber will not get you through the winter months. They even have leopard print wellie socks which is how I made up for my plain black inner lining. If you don’t already have a fab pair of rain boots, now is great time to snag a pair because a lot of them are on sale with the winter season coming to a close. The other day I saw a huge selection of Hunter boots at Nordstrom rack. Here are some of my favorites:
