I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. I just love skirts! This one I am wearing is one of my favorites (I know I say this about everything that I wear here). My photographer mentioned that I wear this skirt a lot. I believe I also wore it here
. I think structured skirts and dresses fit my body better that’s why I tend to favor those. You gotta know what looks good on your body. I love skinny jeans like the next girl but they just don’t look good on me as they do on a skinny person. I do wear them but not a whole lot like a do skirts and dresses. And also the more midi the skirt or dress is the better.
Wearing this with a new add to my shoe collection, the oh so popular Aquazzura wild thing sandals. They are very beautiful I get why everyone is knocking them off front and center. Recently Ivanka Trump’s shoe brand knocked them off and Aquazzura tweeted his gripe about it and as soon as he did that, Ivanka Trump’s wild things knock off shoes
sold out, everywhere! No publicity is bad publicity I guess. I have to say I am guilty of trying to find and get the Ivanka knock off shoes when I read about the tweet. I think Ivanka’s did it better than all previous copy cats that’s why Mr Aquazurra felt some type of way. I love her version the best. They have them here and also here.I tied to resist these shoes for the longest time because I thought although pretty, the heel height was undoable for me. I guess they listened to low heel lovers like myself because they made these in a manageable 3 inch heel. I love the low heel height version, I was able to walk around DC wearing them, walking comfortably and confidently (which I lack when wearing uncomfortably high heeled shoes). I got lots and lots of compliments on the shoes from both men and women.
Below are all the places you can get the Aquazzura Wild Thing sandals inspired versions for a fraction of the cost:
1. Ivanka Trump “Hettie” Fringe & Tassel Suede High Heel Sandals, ($145, Bloomingdales) Also available here and here. These are my favorite, they look like they are well made and closly resembles the Aquazzura wild things fringe sandals.
2. Steve Madden “Sassey” Fringe Suede Sandals, ($129.95, Amazon) Also available here. They seem to have great customer reviews.
3. Daisy Street Pom Ghillie sandals, ($60, ASOS) These come in cute colors.
