It’s kind of nice to pop on a fedora rather than the everyday keep-my-head-warm tuque. Too bad they’re just not as warm! Maybe they should make similar hats with ear-warmers? Actually, they do. And they are none too stylish, let me tell you. I dare you to Google search ’em!

So for a second time around on Freak-Shoe Friday, we examine the socks with sandals issue. The real conundrum being whether this style means being fashionably avant garde, or if it’s a sign of some serious creative constipation. I mean, it’s one thing if the old little man down the street walks around the neighbourhood wearing his white tube socks & sandals. He’s old. You empathize (albeit slightly shudder). Ultimately, however, you just let it go.

But a presumable fashionista aligning herself (himself?!) to this aesthetic during London Fashion Week (the only difference being a platform version of the sandal & black sock layering on stockings) is just perplexing. And by LFW I’m talking this last one. Yep, just a few days ago. It’s a little scary that high-end Birkenstockesque sandals donned with sporty socks are deemed worthy of the concrete runaway in such a stylish city.  There should be a special fashion jail for this type of infraction. Just saying.

That is all.

Katy Perry looked ready for Spring in her beautiful asymmetrical Vivienne Westwood floral gown & even more amazing Christian Louboutin sparkly pumps. The stunning celebrity wore this fab outfit with her hair (or wig!) in a wavy black bob at the 2014 Elle Style Awards yesterday, showing of her toned arms, legs & glitter pointed-toe crystal embellished Loubies. Simply gorgeous!

You can find Katy’s exact nude/silver heels at Saks, Bergdorf Goodman & Barney’s.  Saks also carries this style with black glitter/navy crystals, while Net-a-Porter has it in a black patent/silver crystal alternative. All so pretty, but I’m partial to Katy’s version myself.

When a sunny day happens in the dead of winter, it’s time for a floral sweater! Or flowers on anything, really! Kinda gives the illusion of Spring & helps us make it to the warmer days a little more easily. Then again, maybe I should speak for myself! I found this fun pale blue & navy pullover from Joe Fresh a few weeks ago (there might be a few left in store).

Oh, I REALLY want these lovely “Musical” pumps from Miu Miu! White patent leather with sketched musical notes all-over, these are the perfect shoe-girl heels to get seen & noticed. We’e looking at a 4 1/4″ heel, which isn’t bad considering most designer shoes out there are towering at 5″. I can see these styled perfectly with a pair of slightly rolled-up light coloured boyfriend jeans & a perfect crisp shirt. But really, what wouldn’t these heels complement?!

These beauties are currently available at Saks & Nordstrom in all sizes. Also on sale at Net-A-Porter in a black/blue version. If you prefer flats, check out below for the cute heel-less alternatives & clothing with the same musical note print!
