Slip-On and Carry-On into Autumn

Steve Madden Slip-Ons: Ecentric

P1050120P1050113What happens when you can’t wear sandals any more, but you’re not ready for cold-weather shoes and boots? The answer is: go mid-way and find a transition shoe. I discovered the ever-popular slip-on. No fuss, no strings, just slip it on and go. It’s like wearing a closed-toe sandal.

Steve Madden makes a comfortable, stylish and well-priced slip-on shoe in a full range of colors and styles. For me, there was no question: I had to have the leopard-print!

As we enter the period of transition from warm to cooler temps, the slip-on is a perfect solution for your wardrobe. Because really, we aren’t ready to say good bye to the ease of summer, are we??!

A real boyfriend?

I must be on Bebe’s mailing list because I get updates on their new arrivals from time to time. Today’s news struck me as funny: the introduction of Bebe’s new skinny boyfriend jeans with all the detail of classic boyfriend jeans all wrapped up in a skinny jean. Huh? What’s wrong with this picture? The big sell? Boyfriend jeans that actually flatter! But doesn’t that defeat the whole purpose of wearing boyfriend jeans? Those over-sized, comfy jeans that are one size too big for you and are actually meant to look like your boyfriend’s jeans. A skinny jean is just a skinny jean. If you’ll excuse the pun, I don’t think Bebe’s idea has legs!

Is this a fashion crisis? No. Is it life-altering? No. Am I freaking out about it? No. Because the truth is that I won’t be wearing boyfriend jeans of any kind – skinny or traditional non-skinny – now or ever. They’re not flattering for my body type. But I do mind that they’re calling them something they’re not. Boyfriend jeans are the opposite of skinny jeans. Let’s remember – a real boyfriend is authentic and can be elusive.
