For the Fall, Versace increases the glam factor by using mostly stiletto and chunky heels. Compared to the Fall 2009 collection, the heels have brighter eye-catching colors and uses a variety of materials such as suede and patent leather. What do you think?
“The shoe is very important. I can’t even fuck with you if your shoe game is slacking.” Well said, well said, I couldn’t have put it any better. In an interview with Refinery29.com, Solange Knowles opens up about her style heroes and why shoes are her secret weapon to style. She states that her style is a blend of Diana Ross, The Fela Kuti Queens, Björk, ’70s-era Chaka Khan, Chloë Sevigny, ’90s Erykah Badu and her mom in the ’70s and ’80s. Yet, what I love the most about her is her respect and appreciation for the shoe game. Whether you know it or not, your choice in shoes speaks volumes about the type of person you are. They say not to judge a book by its cover, but when you’re dealing with shoes, you can throw that saying out the window. Shoes provide information on where you are in your life mentally, your fashion direction, most of the time – your financial situation, where your interest lie, and if you’re conservative, outgoing, daring or experimental. Not only does it piece outfits together, but in my opinion it completes them. How important are shoes to you? Do you agree or disagree with Solange’s view?

The Chanel Quilted Denim Sneaker ($650) from the Spring/Summer collection is a must have for the ladies. The sneaker features quilted denim on the sides and a calf cap toe & heel. I can foresee much damage (and I mean damage in the good way) being done with this addition to your closet, especially since summer is right around the corner and these could be used as an upscale replacement for your Vans or Converse.
If you’re a women and a fan of the Maison Martin Margiela brand, then you’re probably going to love this Short Covered Wrinkled boot ($995). These crumpled boots from Martin Margiela’s Line 22 are fun and versatile. The scrunched design allows you to create different shapes with the excess material.
