If Alexander Wang’s Fall 2014 Shoes are any indication, Wang’s ideal women is headed into some sort of urban battle. The collection, which was shown amid the stark industrialism of the Brooklyn Navy Yards, featured women shod in what amounted to glossy leather shields, both of the thigh-high boot variety and the more challenging boot-front mules, which were both tall and completely open in back.

As we’ve said about a thousand times between here and PurseBlog, New York Fashion Week is upon us. It’s mostly great fun, but the endless whir of the week’s festivities can make it a bit hard to accomplish normal things like sit-down meals and changing our polish when it chips.

New York Fashion Week, as it exists in people’s minds, is not exactly how it exists in reality, especially in February. New York is currently a minefield of slush puddles and standing water, and even in less extreme February weather, it’s still pretty damn cold.

Miu Miu, with its utra-femme use of rhinestones and glitter and embrace of shapes both girlish and sexy, has always had certain things in common with relative upstart Charlotte Olympia. Olympia, for one, tends to skew a lot more literal with its nostalgic references; Miu Miu generally prefers to embody, say, the mood of a retro stroll down the boardwalk instead of making a capsule collection that includes shoes festooned with fish.

I’m not the kind of girl who usually loves the kind of beauty products that everyone just SWEARS by; hype just makes me skeptical, and when it reaches a certain stage, any product is almost certain to be a letdown once you get it in your hot little hands. My one exception is the famous NARS Orgasm Blush – it’s not too shimmery, not too pink, not too peach. Read More...

Everybody has their fashion blindspots; the things that we love even though we know that a love for those things is not defensible in any objective way. I have what I am fully prepared to admit is questionable taste in flat sandals, which I have admitted on occasion in the past and which you guys have probably surmised from some of the shoes that I’ve previously written about in an appreciative way.
