It’s safe to say this outfit is all about the shoes. In fact, it feels wrong to call them shoes, in my mind they’re more like a satin sculpture, a wearable work of art. I found them during a personal shopping experience at Selfridges with my friend Lexi, and I was both shocked and delighted when I found them. I first heard of the brand via Leandra Medine of Man Repeller who has an emerald green pair, and despite my searching I hadn’t realised that Selfridges stocked them! There is also a flat version of this style and I am seriously considering investing in a pair when summer comes around.
With a shoe like this it’s usually best to keep the outfit simple, let your footwear do the talking! Even at an event like Fashion Week I’d be tempted to do the same, the addition of further extravagant looking pieces could tip the whole look in to “try hard” territory, which is never a good thing. So I’ve kept it about as simple as it gets, white shirt, black jeans and a black coat. The Rag & Bone shirt dress was a birthday gift last year and I’m still absolutely in love with it, the quality is fantastic and it goes with just about everything, as white shirts tend to do. As for the coat, I honestly believe no woman’s wardrobe is complete without a long black coat. This was a fantastic bargain, I found it in my local consignment store for £50, and it’s 100% cashmere vintage Jaeger. It’s basically the socially acceptable way to wear a dressing gown in public every day and get away with it.
