Even though I've lived in Los Angeles for 10 years, I'm still a typical, New Yorker in the most basic, fashion sense. Meaning no matter how hard I try to embrace color, I'm really all about having a lot of black in my closet. I can't help it. It's such a no-brainer.
But one thing I have discovered is that a single item of color or one pop accent can ignite even the most austere black uniform.
That little shot of plaid popped my basic black and made me feel more adventurous. The booties were a random, Boutique 9 find at Marshall's, but you can find similar items on sale right now. Such as this Paul Smith, Valentina bootie, available at Zappos.com. Isn't that rubber heel the cutest? And great for inclement weather too!
here if you're looking for something a little more lady-like...
And if you're a purist and love black as much as me, you can still snag these Harajuku Lovers booties on sale at Overstock.com for $65 here. What a deal!
