What I Wore: Sparkly Pumps

 

Alexander Wang cropped suede trench vest, T by Alexander Wang muscle tee and yellow Miu Miu skirt magically won 50% off in store last week. Mike Biel for GofG.
The setting: Viktor and Spoils at the Hotel on Rivington. The crowd: Twitter handles in real life. I see @whitegrlproblem. The flailing arms: mine. I call this one, perfecting-the-girls-that-shake-it-with-their-hands-in-the-air-dance-move-but-failing. It feels too early to be emulating a stuffy Jewish grandmother so I’ve concluded that my scoliosis does not permit swift recital of dance moves that involve heavy shoulder participation. And that’s it, that’s the whole thing. Ultimately, the lesson learned here is that holiday parties rock. How go yours, and what the shit are you wearing? Tell me, I have to know.
And here are the shoes, should you wonder what my ankles were up to. (via)
 
 

Layering Insight–Never Stop

I speculate these posts do not require much an introduction, so I’ll skip to the theme: embracing darker colors and a more monochromatic mode of living while still unleashing the evident repeller now not even manifesting within you all, just plain old and out there and running, running and out there. Freak flags, they are a’flying. Here are the steps.

 tank: The Reformation, pants: J Brand, booties: Alexander Wang
I guess this may also serve as an installment of: Man Getter to Repeller. Because utilmately, (unanimous) man likes nothing more than tank and jeans on woman. Reasoning is simple: the male psyche isn’t all that different than that which he consumes (I’m still trying to make out whether this makes sense outside the confines of my head.) He’s simple, so he likes things delivered to him simply.We as women, are complex and so we relish the prospect of multiple layers, prints, intricate details…you know how it goes. In any case, so much revealed thigh and shoulder is makes me massively uncomfortable.
blouse: The Kooples
So a mens style button up creatively equipped with obligatory Peter Pan collar renders the only plausible solution. Cover that thigh and shoulder, it’s a two for one deal. But it ain’t over.
sweater: The Reformation
No, no, that would be too easy. So here find the most comfortable sweater I own. I’m pretty sure it’s menswear, which, you know, makes it all the better. Naomi said I looked like Alexa Chung in this shot and for that reason alone, I almost–keyword almost–stopped layering here.

 

skirt: Miu Miu
But I’m an overachiever now, and overachievers don’t stop at any cost, enter my new favorite trend the skant. Reactions to this trend are still ambiguous, but I’ll just come out and say it: I fucking love it. I’ve reached a point in my life when I whole-heartedly ask myself on the daily while dressing: what good are pants without a peplum? No good at all, folks. No good at all. And now, in a final step:
shoes: Sergio Rossi, necklace: DANNIJO, clutch: Wanderlust + Co
Accessories conquer all. Nothing says reluctance to-commit-to-trend like a sweater, jeans, and structured clutch. It’s my most favorite form of underrated thematic dressing. Please also find stapled to my feet my most notable Black Friday conquestSergio Rossi shoes most remniscent of a certain Black Swan who had evidently, lost it out to the proverbial white swan because, you know, they were sixty-five percent off, plus an additional twenty for Black Friday. That loss was my gain. And again, you can’t out a price tag on an epic gain.

 

I just can’t stop looking at them! Feathered ankle cuffs are the future.

I’m a reader of New York Magazine’s The Cut blog so it was nice to finally meet the editor Amy Odell. It was also nice seeing Amy in her Miu Miu shoes (they were all the rage during New York Fashion Week) — with her quilted Chanel clutch in tow.

And yes, that is an Arm Party(TM) we spy.

Redacted, You’ve Been Manrepelled!

dress: T by Alexander Wang, shoes, Maison Martin Margielanecklace: DANNIJO. Skirt; MMissoni, socks: Hue, shoes: Miu Miu,necklace: DANNIJO. Blouses: Redacted.
Last spring, I styled, modeled and with the help of none other than Naomi Shon, shot the lookbook for Jay Godfrey’s blouse line Redacted. And now, I’m tasting the fruits of that labor. Aside from feeling like a fancy flamingo with complete creative control, it was boat loads of fun to take the blouses that Jay calls “the perfect going out tops for a sexy Saturday night,” and show him that even his “going out tops” have serious Man Repeller potential. Using most of my own clothes to style the twenty blouses, you can stay rest assured there are copious amounts of layers, socks, sandals, high waist pants, prints and over active arm and neck parties to last forever and ever and ever and die. I was particularly keen on using white tights to style a couple looks. They just feel so Karl Lagerfeld meets Thakoon Fall ’10 and there’s never anything wrong with a merge like that, can I get a heck yeah! Peep the full lookbook, my favorite look implements a certain metallic mini skirt that has Chloe written all over and yet cost $24 at H&M four years ago, and shop the collection here.
 
 

So fly: Booties

This week on eStyle Chat we had an entire blog post dedicated to booties. You can find it here but eStyle Chat is limited to things under $300. Not Fly and Mighty!  From wild, to practical, here are our booty picks in a price range from $300 on up.

 

Rag and Bone booties for $495, find them here on Shop Les Nouvelles

 

Fendi, lace up leather booties for $385 are definitely unlike anything we’ve seen so far this season (in person, that is) in the booty department.

Camilla Skovgaard wedge booties for $400, click here to find them on ssense.com. Check out that saw tooth heel.

Balenciaga two-tone lady-like booties. A good transition through the seasons for $339

This is such a beautiful color. Grey is so chic and Emily from eStyleChat has a new grey purse she adores! Check out these Miu Miu Suede platform booties here for $689

What booties are you wearing this fall and winter? What are you wearing them with? Tweet @fly_mighty and @eStyleChat to let us know!
