Get The Look: The Jenn Mid Heel 

 

 

The merits of mid heels are truly endless. Just under 2.5 inches (not too high, not too low), these pairs have serious walk-all-day appeal. That means you won’t have to swap out flats half way through the day. First up: The best selling Jenn Mid Heel, a slip-on d’Orsay shape that’s ultra-verstaile and creates a legs-for-days effect.

Oh, how we adore Olyvia. This ankle strap mid heel looks beyond amazing with everything from cuffed denim (like the above) to elegant dresses. Plus, the new bold suede colors instantly wake up an outfit.

Meet Mallory. Think of this leather stunner as a real triple threat. The three T-straps in front, flattering pointed toe and easy back zipper. Check, check and check.

Go to yoga more. Bring lunch to work. The list goes on. But how about this for a resolution: Experiment more with textures like leopard and faux snakeskin. 

 

The combination of leopard printed on hair calf and rich plum purple faux snakeskin is  surprisingly versatile. And it just looks so absurdly cool. Truly anyone can pull this off.

Meet Madelyn Somers, the Creative Director at Francine Dressler. What and who is Francine Dressler? Madelyn’s mother’s maiden name who is also an incredible artist. The brand is made up of her fantastically cheeky art from the ’70s in Los Angeles that’s been  silkscreened on t-shirts and tanks. In a nut shell, we’re obsessed with Maddy and we love how she styled our booties.

 

1. Flats or heels? Heels. I’m always partial to the extra lift.

 

2. Plaid or leopard? Plaid, hands down.

 

3. How do you plan your daily looks? Well, since moving to NY I dress mostly in white, black, grey. It’s usually a variation of the same thing — a pair of trousers or skinny jeans, a t-shirt, oversized sweater, and a blazer with a heeled boot. I’d say my look is tomboy-chic.

4. What’s on your fashion radar for fall and winter? Winter whites, a leather jacket, Alexander Wang x H&M, and all the brands merging art+fashion.

 

5. A piece from your closet that you’ll never part with?  I have this beige patchwork/plaid long blazer that walks a fine line between ugly and amazing. I bought it at the Salvation Army for 7 bucks in Santa Cruz, California. I’ve had it for forever and it’s falling apart, but I love it so much.

 

6. Five celebrities/icons you’d invite to your dinner party?  Hmm…It would be a pretty eccentric dinner party: Michael Jackson, Andy Warhol, Wes Anderson, Patti Smith and Francine Dressler (ha!)

Our credo for winter? Brown boots, always. They’re practical, versatile, reliable and 100% classic. Essentially the cornerstone of your shoe closet, particularly with the cold temperatures coming in. Here are two fuss-free rules and easy outfits for you to copy pronto.

1.  The Big Chill: Not only does the hazelnut suede hue look incredible with light wash denim, but also your winter outerwear. Think of it as a classic with a twist.

2. A Lot Of Soft Neutrals: The mahogany leather beautifully complements a palette of ivories, creams and greys. It’s fresh and fun, especially with a pop of plaid.

This fall, we’re definitely tangled up in blue. Whether it’s a quilted ballet flat or a tassel tote, it’s safe to say we’re loving the mesmerizing hue.

“Oversized sweaters are wardrobe all stars for fall and winter. Comfortable to boot and they look incredibly stylish layered over everything from dresses and blouses to skinnies and skirts.” – Darlene, Fashion Director
