The Clog Trend

29 Jun

I clearly remember my first pair of clogs. I had wanted them for ages and when I finally got them I had a whole order of clothes to pair them with. I wore them through blisters and on to callouses. I continued to wear them even though they made me trip all the time. That was 1993.

These days I’m not as certain about clogs, in part because you have to be careful which kinds you buy in order to not spend weeks wearing them in, and also because there are just so many damn ugly styles out there. (Versions so ugly they take a perfectly cute outfit and ruin it with troll feet.) That said, when they are done right, they can be damn adorable (and comfortable) and recent styles tend to be much more creative than those of the 90s!

Here are seven styles I’m digging…

The Sexy Clog: Lace Up Corset Clog, $245 at No6

The Classic Summer Clog: Ollie Clogs, $80 at Topshop

The T-Strap Clog: Sonoma Clog, $168 at Free People

The Fashion Forward Clog: Twelfth St By Cynthia Vincent Tamara Clog, $350 at Revolve Clothing

Hello Weekend!

11 Jun

My husband and I have dinner plans tonight with our good friends from New York. I’m really excited to see them as we missed our annual New Years eve trip together this past year and we are all looking forward to meeting up and planning for 2011. We were thinking Guatemala…but I digress.

What I really should talk about is what I’ll be wearing tonight, a black Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Dress with shoulder detailing that looks not too far off from this one. Even though it’s almost officially summer, I still love wearing all black and I love to contrast feminine details with more edgy and/or earthy accessories.

Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Long Sleeve Tunic Dress, $350 at Shopbop.
Loeffler Randall Esther Wood Heel Pump, $475 at Endless.
Hand-carved Wood Bangle, $7 at J. Jill.
Elizabeth Cole Tusk Necklace, $228 at Free People.
Tory Burch Cynthia Printed Shoulder Bag, $277 at Tory Burch.
