Red alert, NYC Snobs! Bottegaicon is having a sample sale on Thursday and Friday. Men’s and women’s ready to wear, bags, small leather goods, luggage, and ladies’ jewelry will all be discounted at the Metropolitan Pavilion (125 West 18th Street on the 4th floor) between 11 am and 7 pm on Thursday.
In a fantasy world where there’s never a line at the valet, and Thor carries me whenever my feet hurt, I always wear the most extravagant of shoes. But even in reality, we can find opportunities to wear shoes so good they could be displayed as works of art.
Pairing stripes with more stripes is an endeavor that not every Snob could pull off, but this is Olivia Palermo, front row fixture extraordinaire, and it’s not her first time dressing outside the lines – or in this case, in them. Personally, I love the look, even with mismatched stripes.
Going bold is always something we should all strive to do. Pushing out of your comfort zone, even just when it comes to getting dressed, almost always pays off. If you’re squeamish about getting a little too adventurous with your outfit, look to an out-there bag with brash graphics. Wearing a standout bag is much easier for more timid snobs to handle, since there’s more of a physical disconnect (read: you’re not say, zipped into it).
