Good or Bad: ModCloth’s Suit Heels

My favorite thing about ModCloth is their shoes, they have such a great variety of styles and prices. Though I don’t think I can wrap my head around these “Heels That Suit You.”

Yes, they’re cute and fun, and I like the striped heel, but aren’t they a bit too costumey? They’d make for a cute 40’s or 50’s costume, but I’m not sure about wearing them on your average night out.

Would you wear them? And if so, how would you style them?

On a side note, these are some heels I could behind:

I know, they aren’t any less crazy than the first pair…

American Flag Fashion: Good or Bad?

For quite a while (since the Spice Girls took over our childhoods maybe?) the Union Jack has been fashion’s foremost flag. While the American Flag has been deemed tacky by some, it’s popping up everywhere. I’ve seen everything from a $15 Forever 21 tank to Balmain’s $1515 flag tank that’s been causing quite a stir.

And then of course, there are these stunners from Jeffrey Campbell. I absolutely love Jeffrey Campbell and rarely find a shoe that I dislike, but I’m not sure how I feel about American Flag platform sandals.

Honestly, I’m not sure how I feel about American Flag anything. I just can’t get into it.

Good or Bad: Velvet and Clogs

(I’ve noticed that the ShopStyle widget isn’t working, I’m trying to fix it. But if you’re interested in viewing the items and my other looks, I’m MegFaye on shopstyle.com!)

Velvet has been a big trend this fall, in part with the 90’s making a comeback. I love the return of plaid, combat boots, looser fits and higher waists but I just can’t get behind clogs and velvet. I had a pair of Candys clogs back in the 90’s, they were brown slip-in clogs with a heel. I loved them; I wore them as often as I could and they were the first shoe I had with any sort of heel. But not even the nostalgia can make me like them again. I mean, I loved scrunchies in the 90’s too, but I will most definitely not be seen with giant bunched up fabric wrapped around my hair.

But I digress, what about you guys? Clogs and Velvet: yes or no?

(I do somewhat like the clog boots, like the Jeffrey Campbell ones below)

Good or Bad: Peep Toe Boots

6a011571147793970b011571350176970b-800wiPeep toe boots and booties have been everywhere recently, and the trend will continue into Fall. I love a good pair of booties and certainly a good pair of boots, but I’ve never been the biggest fan of peep toes. I can’t figure out why, I just don’t like them very much. But some of these boots are so awesome, for example the Alexander McQueen’s to the left, they are inspired by a leather moto jacket, how cool is that? For Fall they are being paired with tights (first we get peep toes for Fall and now it’s okay to wear tights with open toe shoes? Awesome!) and certain styles seem like they’ll transition to Fall well, if you got them over the Summer. So the question is, are these shoes good or bad? I’ll probably pick up a more affordable pair to try out the trend for myself and see if I can just maybe be turned into a peep toe fanpeeptoe

Denim Leggings?

image4xlasos.com

Ok, let me start by saying I’m a fan of leggings and I’m a fan of skinny jeans. But I am not a fan of leggings as pants, and something trying to look like something else.

I’m all about fashion for every body type, but I also believe you should wear things that flatter you. Leggings as pants are only flattering on certain body types because leggings show everything. 

I like leggings as pants as long as your shirt is just long enough to cover your crotch, something so tight and thin can sometimes not be so attractive right there. That’s really my main concern.

About things that are trying to look like other things, they aren’t made of denim. At least most of them aren’t, so having the seams and denim-like washes are not appealing to me. 

So, are denim leggings good or bad? 

I’m voting bad.

Good or bad?

Everyone has been talking about Angelina Jolie’s Versace dress she wore to the Inglourious Basterds premiere at Cannes. I am an Angelina Jolie fan and maybe my opinion is biased, but I love the way she looks. The dress is a bit sheer, but I can’t bring myself to think anything bad about it. The dress fits her perfectly, her lack of jewelry and accessories let her dress and lips stand out. Brad is really the only accessory she needs with this dress.
