For a more relaxed and callus free style, you are reading the right post. Still floral fabric covered shoes but no heels this time. Courtesy of muy goregous younger sister and my world-class brother, my mother and Omar Shariff’s suspected love child (I’ll be posting stories about them soon) I recieved a pair of lace-up flats from Zara (to my older sister, who is probably reading, I’m still waiting for my present).
Comfortable as a pair of Dr. Scholl’s (minus the offensive ugliness factor) but cute, cute as a button, this shoes can be worn with just about anything. Sundresses, cropped denim, highwaisted shorts, jumpsuits, girly skirts, you can rely on them to enhance any outfit.
LOOK 2: Lace-up Flats
This look is a little bit laid-back, but also very, very femenine, but overall playful. The combination of the pale blush, high-waisted scalloped shorts with the cropped, front tie, sleeveless shirt seems like an ensemble that once belonged to Vladimir Nabokov’s Lolita.
It’s sexy and flirty, but also according to various S/S 2011 trends. The pastels and neutrals are very strong this season, as well as the vintage vibe (1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, all of them making a big comeback).
My choice for accesories is simple yet fun. Chanel’s classic 2.55 bag in pastel peach for an upgrade. Circular aquamarine shades paired with this “lovely” chain necklace with a bow and for the final touch perfectly manicured nails with Essie’s “Adore-a-ball”.
For beauty go light on the makeup, choose a bright, rosy shade for the lips. Style your hair in loose pigtails or disheveled braids. Remember we are going for classy Lolita (before the humping Humbert part) not Jodie Foster’s Taxi Driver child hooker.
For both shoes, remember fabric is very delicate. Walk carefully and avoid surfaces in which shoes can get dirty. Always scotchguard them before wearing. Some shoe stores offer the possibility of spraying the shoes at the moment you buy them, always ask.
