CRÈME DE LA STYLE: BLUE, LIKE ELVIS
by CRÈME DE LA CRM
Got the blues?
Slip on some shoes.
Recently, the color blue has seriously tickled my fancy (serious tickles, people). In this case, however, were talking shoes – blue shoes. Why blue shoes? Because blue shoes are crème de la trendy (particularly for FW 12), but if done wrong (aka Courtney Stodden) there is a high chance of losing (all of) your friends. So, lets keep this crème de la crème and (of course) a little sassy (as one must always stay true to some bad-ass-sass). In dedication to Elvis, I’ve compiled three outfits in hopes of revealing the (at times, underestimated) power and versatility of: the blue shoe.
I think there is this misconception that if one wears blue shoes, one mustn’t toy with other colors – as if the color blue, is more than enough. This, I disagree with. Blue lends itself to versatility: it should be taken advantage of, not wasted. So, (trail) mix your blues up, people. Mix in color, mix in print, mix in texture – MIX IT UP.
First outfit: Stella McCartney pants, T by Alexander Wangtop, Stella McCartney beanie, Dannijo necklace, Jérôme Dreyfuss bag, Pierre Hardy shoes, sunglasses by Illesteva, cuffed bracelets by Noir and Anndra Neen. Second outfit: top by Lanvin, Moschino Cheap and Chic pants, Dannijo and Cast of Vices bracelets, necklace also by Dannijo, YSL bag and shoes by Nicholas Kirkwood. Third outfit: Versus jacket, 3.1 Phillip Lim leather pants, headpiece by Erickson Beamon, cuffed bracelet by Anndra Neen, the bag is Jimmy Choo and shoes by Miu Miu. And… I’m done – keep it crème de la crème, people; as always!
