Wintour Sparkle

30 Nov

It is amazing to me that someone as entrenched in the fashion industry as Anna Wintour would stick to the same style season after season – and yet she does. Perfectly coiffed hair, knee length skirt or dress and a bit of sparkle around the neck.

This sort of  jewelry stick-to-itiveness seems like a rut, but who am I to challenge Anna on her style? (Please don’t euthanize me Ms. Wintour!) As someone who doesn’t have a strong jewelry gene it does seem like a good idea to just reach for the same few baubles every day and remove the guess work from accessorizing. Oh first world problems…

A quick search leads me to believe these necklaces are either Cartier or H. Stern, code for woefully out of my price range. However, I did find a few interpretations that I think would look fit the bill and make Anna proud.

These necklaces would make an excellent holiday gift but PLEASE no one rush out to get one for me. The Tom Binns necklace is already en route…

Fall screams several things to me – among them are hot toddy time and boot weather.

As a tall and big-footed woman (do I sound sexy?) footwear has always stymied me. In heels I am a giant and even in the cutest flats I can look like Sasquatch. However boots have somehow transcended these issues and are my favorite shoe to shod myself in. Luckily after years of cultivation my boot wardrobe is full – I have knee highs, to the knee, shorties and booties – but I rounded up a few potential booties for my sister and I thought others might enjoy as well.

One person I know who will hate these shoes is my friend Lea, who is always chiding me for loving a chunky heel. Lea I can’t help it, they are more comfortable! Hopefully you can look past the chunk and see these shoes for what they are – overpriced, mildly comfortable, and perfect for fall. See below on where to purchase.
