About Fashion and Life

I’ve put together a little collection of 10 “inspiring” (or not) quotes I’ve found from around the web. OK I don’t know if it inspiring but certainly truthful and it makes me smile. Which one is your favourite? The last one for me is the cold hard truth. Happy Saturday everybody!

Less is More: Gianvito Rossi

Gianvito-Rossi-Silk-PumpsToday has been so crazy between running around, saying my “see you laters” (because I am terrible at saying goodbye!) and trying to pack, that I only have time for something very simple to be honest. Simple they may be but these Gianvito Rossi pumps are far from common and are still insanely beautiful.

With these silk pumps, Gianvito Rossi reminds us that the simplest designs have the most to offer. The sheen provided by the silk material elevates the basic, yet impeccably crafted design to the next level. I especially love designs like this as I believe that less is more when it comes to a good pump. 

Autumn Florals

As the weather cools down (Ok, maybe not here today for some freakish reason) I look more and more to my favourite season, Autumn. I love everything about the season from the vibrant colours of the maple trees to the brisk air. Especially I love Autumn and Winter fashion. Sweaters, scarves and BOOTS!

One of the fun trends introduced to us at Burberry AW’14 by Christopher Bailey is some gorgeous florals. I already shared with you the boots from the collection here but for those of us who can’t afford hand painted Prorsum goodness, I’ve rounded up a few other floral footwear designs that you might enjoy. 

So, florals for Fall? I know a few people who would love to keep “Spring in their step” but what about you? What is your opinion on the trend?

Red Ferragamo Slippers

I am back after a great and adventurous weekend. After a couple days of sunshine, salty air, great food and even greater people, I made it back to Calgary in one piece. Sure, the flight is short (hooray!) but as always I was sure to be cozy and comfy during my flight. So what did I wear? Bag that you can’t really see…: Prada. Sweater: Aritzia. Blouse: J.Crew. Shoes: Salvatore Ferragamo. 

I’ll be sharing a close up of my new Ferragamo flats later but I will not wait another minute to tell you how comfortable they are. Thank you to Maggie that works at SF in Vancouver for picking these out for me! They are a bit darker in person- more of an oxblood colour with a red sunburst at the cap toe and heel. The detailing is based off a traditional oxford design while keeping the signature double layered bow which is so iconic of the Varina flat. 

More to come from my Vancouver adventure but if you are following me on Instagram @talktomyshoes, you’ll have an idea of the events that have taken place. 

I hope everyone has had a great start to their week! Love!
