UPDATE 2018 - I started a YouTube Channel with regular vlogs, which include talks about sustainable fashion. Check it out here:
At first, you tilt your head a little to the side and you try to imagine how to feel about this shoe. Do you like it? Do you love it? Or, do you keep looking at them as if they were from another planet, and move on to something more down to earth, literally? While you are figuring out your opinion, I will be sharing mine!
These are no ordinary shoes. No, sir! These bad boys girls are called Elyse and they are by Stella McCartney. Who is simply the queen of sustainable fashion! Can you tell that I like her? Can you blame me? Didn't think so.
A few days ago I went to Milan with a clear mission in mind: find gorgeous, comfy, classic, timeless shoes. And, if there's one thing that I love to splurge on, that would be footwear. An easy breezy task you'd think. However, they also must be non-leather. And that canceled out pretty much the entire Via Monte Napoleone. So, to Stella McCartney the course was set!
I ended up not buying the shoes I actually came for, which were gorgeous ankle boots. A high heel, but not too high. Velvet flocked. Very elegant! Basically, my 38-sized cliché was out of luck: they were sold-out! Something else had caught my attention, though. Elyse had caught my attention. They sneaked up on me like that. I was so curious about how they would look on me, I tried them on. And, it was love at the 18th step, if I remember correctly. I wanted them for sure, but I went back home first and thought about it a little more.
After a quick look on Pinterest, I found enough inspiration to commit fully! Today I am sharing with you the many different ways one can style Brogues. Next week, I will share few of my looks!
