1. Peep-Toed Shoes for Fall/Winter ’08
They look great in that French Vogue spread but from October through March they will only look great sitting in your closet.
2. Candy-Colored Bags
It seemed like such a great idea last springâ€¦ until the economy went to hell in a handbasket (or handbag?). Do you really want to invest in any bag in a color that’s also used for lollipops?
3. Boho Chic
This is cheating a little bit. This is a look that manifests itself every spring and fall in some shape or form â€” and it’s pretty much always an excuse for young women to be slobs and older women to pretend that they’re young again and trekking through a cosmopolitan city. Tres gauche.
I admit my bias. I don’t hold a grudge against silver. This is unfair but Heatherbelle is sticking to her guns: Gold looks terrible and cheap on most women. I’m not talking about details like buckles or small Tory Burch insignias on flats. But the huge gold bags and shoes really need to go. Trust me, your friends already call you a gold digger behind your back â€” they don’t need any more ammo.
Really? Do you truly think that huge animal prints over half your body will make you look sexy and exotic? One piece could be fine (think a belt and perhaps a shoe) but a little Cavalli goes a long way. Meow.
