style + fashion

the art of getting dressed.

style file: a woman is her shoes - and they make her outfit...

Caitlin Surakitbanharn

when i look at my wall of shoes, it's pretty obvious that i have a thing for black shoes.  i have a lot of pairs of black shoes... flats, heels, boots, booties, sandals, mary-jane pumps, t-strap pumps, TOMS...i mean, the list goes on.  one may ask...what do you do with all those black shoes?  isn't a black heel pretty much..a black heel?  

to that, i say...erroneous.  let me demonstrate....
same Giambattista Valli x Macy's dress - 3 different shoe/leg situations - 3 totally different looks.

Wolford stockings, Christian Louboutin pumps.  the tights add a hint of modesty to a short hemline.  the stockings make you focus on the dress.

same Christian Louboutin pumps, bare legs - SUCH a different look, right?  the short hemline with bare legs and pumps is suddenly ultra sexy & allll about the legs.  you're kind of like ...i'm registering there is a dress there... but it's LEGS.

same dress, same bare legs...but now with peep-toe booties by N.Y.L.A.  this was ultimately the final look that i went out in.  this still draws attention to the legs, but the booties add a little 'downtown edge,' and break up the insane line of the leg that pumps gave.  still sexy, but just a touch more interesting.

see what i'm saying?  same dress, three totally different looks...all because of shoe choice!!

so the next time your mom/boyfriend/husband says "do you REALLY need another pair of black heels?" - remember... yes.  you do. the art of getting dressed is in the details, gals.  and shoes are the most important detail there is!
