But if you look at hot as her, you're probably not in the mosh in the dirt with everyone else, are you?

print this flyer and take into store :)
The good thing about the trend, I'll admit, is seemingly, shoes are a free for all. You can get away with ankle boots, gladiator sandals or ballet flats. Easy dressing for your pencil thin legs.

"Optimism, wherever and however I can find it. With everything going on in the world right now (which can leave anyone joyless), optimism is a key ingredient to keeping life refreshed, creative and inspired—and it's especially important for me as a fashion designer. Right now, I find inspiration and optimism in colors. Not just one family of colors but a mixed bag: pastels mixed with primaries as well as with calming neutrals. There is something refreshingly chaotic—yet harmonious—in this colorful mix of non-restricting contrasts." (click here for source)
Optimism is just what I need.
Speaking of being Japanese, the Japanese have an amazing cute style for fashion and photography, as you'd know if you're into Fruits etc.
Japanese photographer Maki Kawakita produces images that range from cute to sweet to saucy and everything inbetween.

Designer Andrew Holden, of label 'Conference of Birds' explains this trend as "designers are getting interested in bringing more poetry to their labels. It's becoming less about ego. More and more, forward thinking designers are opting out of using their actual name." Other labels with similarly inspired brand names include Chronicles of Never and Silence is Golden.
This trend is a great move for brands in terms of public relations and marketing. It positions the brand in terms of art and creativity and gives the brand an edge that other brands do not posess. When marketing a fashion brand, it makes the job easier when the brand is original and creative.
I'm in a bad place at the moment, I'm about to be homeless, I've broken up with my boyfriend and I have no money. I'm feeling about as low as anyone can feel, and I'm trying to pick myself up and move on, but it's very difficult. I don't think my boyfriend ever reads this, but if he ever does, maybe he'll realise what he's putting me through.
The only thing that makes me happy are my friends and my shoes. A weird combination maybe. These shoes in particular which I bought in Milan are my favourite at the moment. All my things are in storage so these are really the only heels I have, but I've been wearing them everywhere and getting lots of compliments.
Love to all
