American Eagle Hipster Clog

American Eagle Hipster Clog

 

These clogs are quite comfortable When I received them knowing what the price point was at about $30 I did not expect much at all. I looked them over and the upper in leather or suede the bottoms are total man made. They have a cushy fleece line for warm toes and the heel is padded. The overall balance of the shoe is amazing I walked around downtown for 8 hours in complete comfort. My feet did not grow tired. With the colour style and balance of platform and 3 inch heel I got lots of compliments on with them. I even wore them to a business meeting and yes I did get the sales. Be careful with or sizing I order the size 11 based on my foot length but reality is I could have gotten the size 10. They are little bigger than they appear. Wide feet should be fine also. I have a narrow foot and the size 11 as a bit much space. Enjoy they are a great buy.

Aldo and Mark Fast

I found this on Yahoo shine today. This is the first look at a sketch of a Wedge shoe by Mark Fast for a new Aldo Shoe collection. I can’t wait to see what comes of this but please read the story below.

First Look: Mark Fast for Aldo Shoes

Sketch by Mark Fast for Aldo

Leading Canadian designer Mark Fast has revealed a sketch from his upcoming collaboration with Aldo shoes. Alongside J.W. Anderson and Preen, the three London-based talents will be a part of the Aldo Rise collaboration line which puts the spotlight on young talents (like those Ikat wedges by Julian Louie).

With a bit of raffia fringe, leather and his signature knit, Fast spills on what expect from the capsule collection: “This collaboration has given me the opportunity to work with new shoe technology and resources. We are having a great time working together and the Aldo team have been quite inspiring in their innovations. We have a great deal of creative synergy. It’s nice to be tied to my roots again with a Canadian enterprise! The collection is about sexy, strong, fierce African fabulousness!”

Abercrombie & Fitch Pay Jershore’s The Situation Not To Wear Their Clothes

Abercrombie & Fitch a teen aspirational company does not like the drunken behavior of The Situation and offer him a six sum in exchange for him not to be scene in their designs. Read the following story that I found on another blog site.

Well this is a new one: Abercrombie & Fitch has offered The Situation cold hard cash (and lots of it) to stop wearing their clothing, WWD reports.

Apparently, the teen aspirational brand is not a fan of The Situation‘s drunken escapades and creepy hook-up tactics (who would have thought!?) and say they are “deeply concerned that Mr. Sorrentino’s association with our brand could cause significant damage to our image.”

Now we know what you’re thinking: Does this mean we have to see even more of The Situation’s shirtless body? But no, thankfully the deal with A&F will simply have The Sitch wearing an “alternate brand.”

A&F went on to say on their website that they “have also extended this offer to other members of the cast, and are urgently waiting a response.”

In other news, The Jersey Shore cast continue to down vodka shots, fist pump maniacally, stumble around drunk and…laugh all the way to the bank. Here’s to new lows ways to make money!

 

My personal thoughts are simiply we have better ways to entertain ourselves without watching someone flash us while in a drunken stew. I wish some of these shows would give our kids a positive message on how to live. Thank you Abercrombie & Fitch for speak out and offering positivity to our children

Lady Gaga loves Versace

Lady Gaga is loyal — she personally responds to her Little Monsters on Twitter, she walked the runway at her stylist Nicola Formichetti’s first runway show for Thierry Mugler, and now it seems as though she’s replaced every item in her closet with Versace designs.

At the beginning of the summer Gaga admited to Femalefirst.co.uk, “I’m wearing only Versace for like the next two months. I’m having a love affair with Donatella.”

And Donatella Versace, the designer at the helm of the Italian fashion house, was flattered by the singer’s devotion. She said in a statement, “I am greatly honored that Lady Gaga chose to wear a Versace Vintage look throughout her ‘Edge of Glory’ video,” Versace continued, “I am a great fan of hers and I believe that my brother Gianni would have appreciated her talent. Like him, Lady Gaga is unafraid to push boundaries and she has created an original vocabulary by merging fashion, music, theatre and art. For me, this video represents a wonderful tribute to anyone who is unafraid to take chances.”

And the singer isn’t the only one blonde babe going gaga over Versace; check out January Jones who struck a pose — in the nude — for the latest ad campaign.

Flip-Flop Feet: How to Defeat Foot Cooties and Flaunt Sexy Toes From Stylelist

Photo: Getty Images

Anyone who has ever pounded the pavement in strappy sandals knows that, by dusk, your soles are the color of the asphalt you’ve been strolling. We won’t even get into the “tan line” of grime around your ankle strap.

After finding out what your feet have picked up — a seriously unappetizing stew of germs — you may be ready to ditch your Havaianas for a pair of knee-high boots.

“When walking on the street in something like a flip-flop, you are exposing your foot to vomitus, human waste, dog feces, sputum expectorated by people — some of whom may have microbacteria — and a wide variety of other things like food or liquids that have been brewing in the hot sun,” says Philip Tierno, Ph.D., director of clinical microbiology and immunology at New York University Langone Medical Center and author of “Secret Life of Germs.”

The kind of cooties you find on city streets, he says, include norovirus (that scourge of cruise ship passengers), staph aureus, types of strep, E. coli and drug-resistant superbugs like Pseudomonas, Klebsiella pneumonia and MRSA. “The summer heat,” he adds, “acts like an incubator.”

If your feet have cuts or open blisters, you may unknowingly be laying out a welcome mat to the viruses and bacteria stuck to the street. But even if you’re abrasion-free, you can transfer all of that nasty stuff the moment you handle your flip-flops when you slip them off or drop them in your bag to change into heels.

Explains Tierno, “You’re exposed to something even worse — these organisms on your hands.” According to Dr. Tierno, 80 percent of all infectious diseases are transmitted by direct or indirect touching — kissing or picking up a dirty shoe — then touching your eyes, nose or mouth

But before you reserve a spot in the nearest plastic bubble, there is good news. “Your skin is built to protect you from getting infected by its very nature,” says Jeannette Graf, M.D., assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Manhattan. The dead skin layer known as the stratum corneum is thickest on the hands and feet and is considered your body’s first line of defense. “Our skin makes antimicrobial peptides that fight against bacteria and viruses and lots of different pathogens,” explains Dr. Graf.

And there are several steps you can take to prevent your tootsies from transferring germs to your hands. Shoe designer Matt Bernson, whose creations are worn by actress Amanda Seyfried and model Gisele Bündchen, has a suggestion for the legions of women who swap out their shoes when they arrive at work or home: “Carry your shoes in a shoe bag when they are in your purse.”

To banish germs, use good old-fashioned soap and water. “You want to wash your feet when you get home,” says Dr. Graf. Or in a pinch, apply an antibacterial hand sanitizer on your feet, she suggests. Also, park a pair of slippers by the front door. “In general, it’s not a good idea to come into your home with dirty shoes that have walked on every known substance and schmear it all over your house,” says Tierno.

You can help keep your skin’s protective barrier in peak condition by exfoliating dead skin cells and slathering on moisturizer, says Dr. Graf. Gently smooth rough spots and calluses with a foot file or pumice stone, such as Sally Hansen’s Prep your Pedi Foot File or Pumice Foot Polish — not with one of those callus razors, says Ji Baek, founder of RescueBeauty.com and author of Rescue Your Nails. “They’re illegal in many states,” says Baek, and they can cut your foot way too deeply. “It’s better to use a foot file and liquid soap when you get home at night.”

Or try a homemade foot soak and scrub. Donna Perillo of Manhattan’s Sweet Lily Natural Nail Spa adds warm citrus juice (grapefruit or orange) to a foot soak. “The acidity kind of eats at the grime,” she says. Follow that up with an all-natural sugar scrub, which you can make at home using granulated sugar, olive oil and your favorite essential oil. And then apply moisturizer.

Dr. Graf recommends using a lotion with skin-smoothing lactic or salicylic acid or urea before bed each night. Or you can lightly coat your feet with Vaseline petroleum jelly and then slip on cotton socks, such as Moisture Jamzz socks to protect your sheets. You’ll wake up with super-soft, germ-free feet.

Vivienne Westwood Slams Kate Middleton’s Style And Eyeliner

Vivienne Westwood isn’t having any of Kate Middleton’s regular girl schtick.

The great dame of fashion, who before the royal wedding declared that she’d love to dress the princess-to-be, if only when her style “catches up,” had more to say this week about the new duchess’ look. “Let me put it this way,” she said in an interview. “It seems to me that her image is ‘ordinary woman.’ Therefore, High Street shopper. And I just think she should be an extraordinary woman, wherever she gets her clothes from.”

We’ll agree with Westwood on one thing: The high street wardrobe, conspicuous grocery store outings and high-profile wardrobe repeats all seem positioned to offer Middleton up as accessible royalty–a people’s princess for the new millennium.

But, of course, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge is not ordinary. She’s a duchess. But it’s exactly this extraordinary social position, combined with perceived ordinariness, however calculated, that has caused a new generation to a) care a whit about royalty and b) buy up anything and everything Kate wears. While we’d be happy to see Middleton amp things up, wardrobe wise, she is never less that perfectly dressed for the occasion and her own style.

We can agree with the designer on this point, however: “I think she’s got a problem with eye makeup!” said Westwood. “The sharp line around her eyes make her look hard. Either she should be smudgy or wear none.” It’s true, though we think her aspirational hair more than makes up for it.

My personal opinion is if Kate Middleton has found a style that suits her body then she should dress accordingly. The future Princess looks good and has great lines to what she wears. I can’t stand the hat it looks like a misplace after thought and her feet (this is a shoe blog) need to stay covered. Overall she is style that many women can achieve. Let her stay ordinary.
