Let’s Talk Loafers

A classic shoe that has lasted decades, a staple in anyone’s wardrobe. Both loved my men and women this business shoe can be dressed up and dressed down depending on your preferred look. Lately my style has been changing to a more minimalistic or edgy look and I like the sensibility of a loafer. Whenever I wear loafers I immediately feel more polished and sophisticated. It’s an easy shoe to just slip on and go that practically goes with anything. The loafer is a staple because you never know when you want to look business savvy. The evolution of the loafer has changed drastically over the years from being the “Plain Jane” of shoes to being more fashionable by adding metal details or even adding a steeper heel.

I’ve recently been noticing that the Gucci loafers have been making comeback. I love the simplicity of the Gucci loafers with their horse bit decal on the front of the shoe. I bought a pair from Target that are quite similar to the Gucci ones and I am in love. I think that they will look great this fall with some black skinny jeans and a structured overcoat.

As always, bijoux from the redhead.

Trend Alert! Coming This Fall

One of the most luxurious fabrics is now in trend for the upcoming fall/winter season. From designers to street style velvet shoes are all the rage. With the rich colors it will be the perfect fall and winter accessory. Designers like Roberto Cavalli, Dolce & Gabbana, Givenchy and Balmain have shown off luscious velvet shoes in their Fall/Winter 2016 shows. I personally love the trend because I love velvet, especially burgundy velvet on shoes. I have also noticed that not only velvet shoes are in trend, but also velvet clothing like dresses, shirts and pants. I don’t know If I am brave enough to wear a velvet dress, but I will definitely wear velvet shoes! I already own a pair of Doc Martens that are in a burgundy/red color from a sale earlier this year. I absolutely love them and can’t wait to wear them this fall. Actually to be honest I already have worn them…in 80 degree weather, perhaps not the best choice, but I thoWant To Get The Look?

The Anti-It Bag

FullSizeRender

The bucket bag has been around for years but hadn’t reached fashion industry fame until a few years ago. The silhouette of the bag is perfect for a chic, minimalistic look. It’s the perfect “anti-it” bag because it’s so simple and classic without all the bedazzle and fringe that it can last for decades. The versatility of the bag is endless. It’s perfect for a day full of shopping or a nice evening out. I love the bag because it gives an element of  Man Repeller chicness to it. If you don’t know who the Man Repeller is, then I suggest you look her up because like me, we both have a love for bucket bags.

The holy grail of all bucket bags is the one by Mansur Gavriel, as pictured above. I absolutely love this bag and it is my dream to one day own this perfectly leather crafted bag. My favorite is the one with the black exterior and the famous red hot interior which reminds me of a Louboutin shoe.

My Bucket Bag Collection

My first bucket bag is the middle one in the picture above. I got it back in 2013 when they were the new “it” bag. I was so excited to get a bucket bag that I brought it around with me everywhere and thus began my love of bucket bags. Now that I have acquired two more bucket bags to my collection I see that my taste in bags have grown and especially the price tag if you know what I mean.  I have recently fell in love with Zara and their bags. Ever since discovering Zara, I feel that I have found the holy grail of shops. Also thanks to Garance Doré’s book  Love x Style x Love  Zara has made it’s way into my heart and my closet.

The two bucket bags in the back in the picture above are still available on Zara.com, here are the links if you’re interested.
