Missing Out on Men’s Shoes

bess-rollover-shoes_revolve-clothing12Yes, these are men’s shoes. I can’t believe it either. I’ve been missing out if they’ve been making men’s shoes like these BESS Rollover Shoes ($330) via Revolve Clothing. Too bad they’re really spenny and don’t have my size. Finding these inspired me to see if I like any other current men’s shoe offerings.

kitson_endless-velcro-strap-bootsInstantly liked both of these shoes because of the multiple velcro straps, which reminded me of my Jeffrey Campbell Biz Belted Booties (pictured in my last outfit post below).  How rad are these Alessandro Dell’Acqua Grey Vernice Antracite Sneakers ($345) via Kitson? OTOH, the price is not so rad.  A cheaper version is the Shane&Shawn Jonte Sport Boot ($180) via Endless.  Both can instantly dress up a casual outfit.

oak-nyc-bootsBoth via Oak NYC, I’m digging the H by Hudson Kaiser Boot ($332) with the fold-over lux shearling and these Diesel Blue Insignia Time Control Onward Boots ($388).  Like the worn-in look and nice shade of blue.

steve-madden_zappos-bootsThese Rangyr casual oxford boots from Steve Madden ($130) caught my eye because of the fold-over. Again. I don’t know, maybe I need to start re-thinking how I wear my current boots and try folding them over because I like the different look. Via Zappos, these Hugo Boss Prosper Sneakers ($379) would give a major metallic boost to any outfit.

farfetch_endless-blue-shoesLastly, I discovered these S***R Sequinned High-Top Gene Boots ($134) via Farfetch, and had to confirm I was looking in the men’s section. Only confident/brave men can pull off sequins, right?  Digging the worn-in and distressed denim of these Giorgio Brutini 17224 Boots ($60) from Endless.

I’m a size 8.5 and wear upwards to a 9 (my coveted Jeffrey Campbell Biz Belted Booties and Topshop Aztec-Studded boots are both size 9), so I could pull off a men’s shoe, right?!  Would just need to order either 1.5 – 2 sizes down.  Hott damn. I’m going to start buying men’s shoes.

Lusting After…

When do I NOT want something from Topshop?  Out of these choice items, my favs are the stud denim jacket and multi-metal strand belt.

Besides Topshop, my second favorite online shopping destination is Oak NYC.  If I won the lotto tomorrow, I’d snatch up the Gar-De Dolly Jacket, Horace leather cropped biker pants, Alexander Wang Brenda Bag and Surface to Air three finger ring.

farfetch-dress_boot3

Via Farfetch, I’m digging the pleating and overall shape of this Tsumori Chisato Chambray Dress and these Alberto Fasciani Canvas and Leather Boots.

Getting back to reality and with what’s more in line with my budget, I like this Danny & Ozzy Split Tote and Silence & Noise twill drapey vest via Urban Outfitters.

Take My Breath Away

Blown away when I did a search on Etsy for ‘origami dresses/skirts’ and found Sarahseven’s collection on Etsy.  The draping, pleats, sweetheart necklines, ruffles and just overall architectural beauty of these dresses are stunning.  Everything is custom order, and the pieces are constructed off a recycled bustier.  The second dress from the top would be my kind of wedding gown.

Jumping On The Bandwagon

Yes, I’ve become a born-again fan of the jumpsuit.   My Topshop one just came in, and it better fit.  There are so many amazing choices available now, but Revolve Clothing has those OMGorg one-pieces.
