“Sock sneakers and sock boots are being replaced by combat boots. Popping up in our top searches we are seeing styles in black leather with chunky soles and a cool-girl detail. Leading brands for the combat boot are Prada and Valentino.” — Alison Stiefel, the VP of Marketing of ShopStyle



Hold the horses, stop the presses and put away your sneakers of yesteryear! The hottest fashion trend on the planet right now is the Combat Boot craze that has swept the land in the last few years and once again in 2019.    Many of my friends have paired skinny jeans, tailored jackets and or chunky sweaters with a dashing pair of footwear.   The look is definitely fun and on trend with embellishments of studs or silver baubles.   The resilient girl boot vibe stems from Charlize Theron outfit in film Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) which set fashion houses scrambling to showcase the movement.    My goal is to always choose classic apparel that remains relevant year after year though in this instance I am definitely foot stomping intrigued.  Is it possible to obtain a rugged pair that will have a lasting effect?  I do believe so.  So, let's jump on board the train and get shopping. 



Less Can Be Best

Lug Sole: a thick rubber sole that has deep indentations in a pattern designed to provide good footing and is used on sport and work shoes

Vibram Sole:  name of the Italian company.  The soles orginally designed to grip and have threads that can be safely used on many surfaces.

Classic Coach for Fall

  Summer Ending "We cannot direct the wind. But we can adjust the sails." Aristotle Summer is winding down as the weather cools, leaves are turning into glorious hues and breathtaking flowers are slowly wilting.  You can feel the shift in the air. Embrace the pending change with anticipation for pumpkins, colors of red, gold and yellow, falling temperatures, spider webs and the end of summertime.  Once again, we long for cozy sweaters, boots, coats, scarves and apparel designated for a fall landscape.

To put this is perspective, the Spani

Kendra Scott - Jewels

"A Girls Best Friend"  Jewelry is equated to icing on a cake or a finale to a play or the ending of a scintillating novel. In other words, an outfit is just not complete without a dab of bling.   Whether wearing jeans, sporting work out gear, getting ready for work, an evening out or absolutely anything, a bauble of jewels is a necessity.  Or course, it is a juggling act because too many jewels makes one appear a bit desperate for attention.  You know the person, they walk into a room and everything from head to toe is sparkling and wiggling so that all is seen are the multitudes of  jewels rather than them.  The well dressed are always sporting minimal jewels.  Check out Golden Globes 75th - Fashion Highlights   for ideas from the red carpet.   The right amount is essential.
