A Nautical Necessity: Sperry Top-Sider's Metallic Boat Shoe

Tuesday, March 2, 2010
One of my favorite style elements for summer is a classic with a twist.  To celebrate their 75th anniversary, the iconic boat shoe brand Sperry Top-Sider is issuing a platinum gold version of their beloved Authentic Original. Finally, a fun alternative to Havaianas (don't own a pair) and those awful PVC sandals Marc by Marc Jacobs keeps churning out every summer. These boat shoes are certainly fierce but basic enough to work with a variety of looks. Pair them with a strapless navy shantanug-silk dress, a boucle-cotton jacket in cream with tailored shorts or a classic white t-shirt with denim cut-offs. The idea is to keep the look light, energetic and fun; let the shimmer of the shoes do all of the talking.

Boaties, I don't like ballerina flats, theses are great. Ps I'd love to show more of my clothes. Those sunglasses are chanel knockoffs I got for $20. Apparently they had only made 250 of the real ones, sold out of course.

I was looking for JEWELRY and was wondering if Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent is the best designer for JEWELRY?
