These B Brian Atwood Licata Suede Star Sandals have me drooling. I am in love with the simplicity they have while still being completely eye catching. This might be the perfect summer night sandal. Heavy lust happening here.
Have a wonderful day and hope for spring weather and night sky filled with stars.
In many places and to many fashion adoring people, spring poses a style conundrum. How does one keep their lovely outfit, that was chosen to beg the sun, dry while walking in the spring rain? Miu Miu had some fun rain coats in the fall 14 showing and hopefully some will translate into what comes out in the stores this fall. The following is one option that I am adding to my lust list that is all available for spring, in stores now. The silver color of this coat makes it seasonless which ways helps when justifying the value and need. By adding spring colored accessories this happily becomes a staple spring piece.
Issey Miyake Vintage Boxy Rain Coat
The sleek shape of the boot and added detail of the print and strap are lovely and with the hand painted umbrella, I believe one could be fashionable and fabulously dry as possible in a torrent if rain.
Leather has become much more fashionable and feminine expanding from the tough girl biker chic look with everything from feminine skirts to business and cocktail dresses, tall boots, leggings and tops and tunics. Because leather can be a real investment it needs to be wearable piece and one that won't be out of fashion in the next season. Leather leggings have proved their staying power as have leather trimmed items like cardigans and sweaters. Leather skirts I think can be harder. I went for it though because this soft beauty just looked so wearable.
It is long enough that, although it is still a mini skirt, it isn't too short for me with my height and dare I say age. And the style is simple. But the winning features for me are the color which, isn't black, and it is the softest most divine leather. It is so soft that it moves like cloth. So lovely.
Since the texture of the leather is so lovely, I chose cashmere for the top, loose and soft. And then the fun bit is the boots, high and a graphic leopard printed hair calf.
The gold I just added for brightness.
Sometimes when I lack a color in the outfit I add it in the make up. I wanted a soft neutral lip with this so I added color to my eyes. Not too much, just a bit of a spring green.

It is chilly in the morning, well, below freezing actually, but it's getting warmer in the day and the sun is coming out and our snow is melting! These things make me happy! Not that you can tell from the look I have in this first picture. Look as if I might bite off someone's head. Or at least that must be what I'm contemplating so intently.
Not looking much happier here. Still looking angry. All the stupid imbisiles I have to deal with day in day out. Sigh. Kidding, kidding. Although please feel free to caption the photos today in the comments.
Seriously, morons give me migraines. Especially when I'm leaning on a brick wall. Again, sigh, and probably an exasperated eye roll too, just for emphasis.
Shoes, those usually make me smile. Especially dove Gray suede Guiseppe Zanotti boots. And since it's dry enough not to be able to wear suede, at least today, I should smile.
So smile I will.
