I'm head over heels over this fall's shoes and boots! I recently got the Boden Catalog and love so many pairs of their shoes. There are great shoes with animal prints as well as sexy heels for the holidays I also got the Sundance Catalog and am swooning over their booties. And I recently happened upon (yeah right!) Anthropologie's boots and flats and had to give a heavy sigh because it's so hard to choose, and there are so many shoes and so little time, and so many outfits to pair them all with.
Boyfriend jeans are on the scene again this season. But what exactly is a boyfriend jean? Are there any real women who can fit into their boyfriend's jeans?! For most of us, the answer is clearly 'no'. In theory, I love the idea of a slouchy, weathered, comfy jean; yet I think that such a jean really only looks fabulous on a relatively tall model-type figure. Not exactly the best look for my 5'3" frame. Now peruse through some of these photos and think to yourself, which ones look the most flattering? I think it's safe to say that Boyfriend Jeans #4 and #5 are the best looking. Why? Because they are slimmer fitting. They're still slightly looser in the waist and thigh, but not so loose that you look you're carrying extra weight. No one wants that. Styling the slim boyfriend jeans is as easy as cuffing them at the ankle to highlight the narrowest section of your leg. Although they look terrific with sneakers, they look the best, in my humble opinion, with a heel or a bootie. With the slimmer fit, I think I can even pull them off.
