Last night rounded out the end of Awards’ Season with the Oscars, and this year did not disappoint. While I could go on and on about the fashions this season, (Umm, hellooo, J.Lo!) I’m all about taking red carpet style and translating it to real life. And for me, that’s all about the colors, the jewels, and mostly the shoes. Whether you’re wearing a priceless gown or simple jeans and a tee, a fabulous pair of heels can make any outfit. (To this point, I’m kind of a shoe hoarder. Don’t tell Eric I admitted that. Seriously, don’t.) This week I’m taking two pairs from DSW for a spin, and I’m mildly obsessed.
The first is a killer pair in fuchsia suede, and while they could easily pair with the rows of black clothing in my closet, I love partnering them with an equally bold jacket for a color-blocked effect. The skirt, blouse, and jacket here have all been in my closet for a couple of seasons, but with a fresh pair of kicks, they’re suddenly brand new. Stay tuned this week for look (and shoes) #2 from DSW!
