Last week’s shoe review taught us that sunglasses might be the new handbags, Barneys opened in the Pacific Northwest and Posh Spice throw like a girl (so do we.) Anyways, it’s a new week, therefore new shoe and fashion news to report. Luckily the weekend’s heat wave hear in Portland didn’t stop anything exciting from happening; so here’s what’s news:
- Baby shoes get trendy—Some call it crazy, but we call it cute. We are talking about spending more than just "peanuts" on baby shoes. The debate comes at a time when baby shoe sales are on the rise. Some people, particularly celebrities whose babies are in the limelight (think Angelina & Brad and Tom & Katie,) spend upwards of $150 to for baby shoes. For the majority, that’s not acceptable, but there are cute alternatives in the range of $20-$40. Pedipeds is one brand helping infants crawl with style.
- Bags for the beach—A good tote to carry to the beach is one of several fashion staples of summer. If you’re like us and appreciate a fun and functional accessory to take to the beach, pool or park, then you’ll love New York Magazine’s suggestions for beach bags on a budget.
- Denim dos and don’ts—It doesn’t matter if you wear a size 0 or 26, there are rules to wearing jeans. After all, if you’re going to spend half your paycheck on designer denim you better make sure you look good in them. Lucky for us, the good people at Glamour put things into perspective with their denim tutorial video.
- Killer heels cause killer problem —Who would have thought a print ad promoting designer high heels could be a problem. Well it happened in Great Britain when a designer brand, NMA, published and advertisement depicting a bloodied man with a giant high heel through his chest and a head line reading "Killer Heels by NMA."
