sock jockin'

New Trend Alert: Socks with Sandals? Get your news!

This used to be a dreadful look, but it's making a huge statement topping the trend charts in the fashion world these days. I personally saw it everywhere while scoping out street style blogs during Fashion Week and beyond.. Let's just say it's here in a big way whether you like it or not and I think I like it IF and only if it's styled correctly.
I came across this awesome website called, Sock it to Me Socks. They have an amazing selection of unique socks for men and women.. I wasn't able to grab any photos, so you'll have to check it out for yourself. You can even design your own sock! That's kinda rad.

I'm diggin' the way these ladies are working this trend:

it's what the doctor ordered

I watched The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus last night... well sort of watched (i'm infamous for falling asleep during movies, good or bad). While falling in and out of a deep slumber, I caught glimpses of the lovely leading lady - Lily Cole. I might sound really dense, but I had no idea she was in this movie! She's one of my favorite models - so lovely in every way.

Anyway, I wanted to share some of my favorite costumes she wore throughout the film... there was so much good stuff going on with the wardrobe.. really fantastic!

in her shoes

Topshop "Shirley" wedges, Hue pants, American Apparel tank, thrifted Liz Claiborne blazer, thrifted jewelry

I love shoes so I think it's only fair that I dedicate my first blog post to my brand spankin' new Topshop wedges. I've been searching for the perfect pair of summer wedges and I think I finally found them.... After patiently awaiting their arrival, I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the mailbox today to see them sitting there... and here they are.
ps. I think my heart skipped a beat when I made the purchase, but they're well worth it!
