Have you noticed that there are really not too many 'must have's' anymore? Things are not going out of style anymore. Clothes and accessories wear out more than go out of style. People tend to dress along with their groupings as in, the friends they hang with. Vintage anything is really cool, and so it J. Crew and The Gap. Flats, spikes, stacked, wedged, Merrills, whatever floats our boat!
To give our wardrobes some splash, mix up the pieces. Mix plum with brown, it's ok! Mix khaki with hot pink, that's good too. Play around, it will get us through the winter!
