Not A Bad Wrap

Cardigans have exploded onto the scene this season but I have been a fan for years. Not just for the grandma set, slouchy "boyfriend" or "grandpa" sweaters are casually chic with jeans and platforms and girly glam with dresses and boots. Think this look is too tame for you? Toughen it up with layers of necklaces or a wide belt.

Well Heeled

Dsquared Flash pump $592 @ Zappos

Designers now seem to want to squeeze every last ounce of showmanship (or show-offmanship) to put their stamp on shoes. While Christian Louboutin made his footwear easily recognizable with his signature red soles, designers have now resorted to adding lightning bolts, flowers and guns (yes, guns!) to add flavor to their heels. Celebs seem to be enthralled with these Dsquared lightning bolt pumps as seen on Rihanna and Beyonce and but I don't see these translating well into the real world unless your job involves a pole and/or a whip. Just kidding, they are actually tamer than the hideous Prada flower heeled mary janes that I abhor, or you can do a Victoria Beckham and not even wear a heel on your shoe. (See pic below.)

Sock it To'em!

Think that tights are a little too boring for your avant-garde taste? Or just want to try something new? Add socks to the mix and make your outfit say something!

I like the thought of these with boots but I am not sure how some of these will translate for work. I think it's a fun look though. What say you, would you rock this trend?
I saw this dress over the weekend at Tarzhay, tried it on and thought, "eh." After sleeping on it, I think it would be oh-so-cute when I spice it up a bit.(It's called VISION people!) And for only 20 bucks it's a steal.
