Nicholas Kirkwood Laser-Cut Leather Pumps

Nicholas Kirkwood Laser-Cut Leather Pumps: The Art of Floral Arrangement

It looks like Alaïa might have some competition in the laser-cutting department! From a distance these Kirkwoods seem as if they might be constructed from sweetly scalloped lace or cork, but closer inspection reveals luxe, nude leather. The spiky metal heel and pointed toe make for a shoe that’s somewhat different from your usual, light spring fair, and I mean that in the best way.

Flats vs. Heels

Flats vs. Heels: Sole Sisters

I may have survived fashion week, but my feet didn’t. I do like to complain about shoe discomfort. Like my husband has said again and again, “You are at the comfort stage of life.” Fine, I accept that. At least I know that about myself and can plan out my life accordingly, but Fashion Week is the exception. The heels had to come out, and I had to prepare to be in them for 14 hours a day.

Top 5 Fall’s Best Reds

Fall’s Best Reds: Scarlet Fever

Better off red? Absolutely! When stocking up on essentials for fall, don’t overlook the color of desire, passion, and strength. Sure, it’s probably the most aggressive shade in the spectrum, but that’s a good thing. More importantly, red is the ultimate anti-neutral neutral. It’s as bold as colors come, yet it goes with everything.
