Stark

The slight nod to the minimalism of the 90's in this outfit was inspired by these sandals. Perfectly strappy and sexy, they're quite unpretentious for how "of the moment" the style is. I definitely had a big crush on the Alexander Wang Fabianas but these are equally as great (I can live without the awkward cape) and a fraction of the price!

  9. I was just talking about how everyone has fallen in love with the Alexander Wang minimalist shoe just yesterday. The heel looks so high without a platform! But looks amazing none the less :)

  15. Ahh the last photo is so cute!! I really love these Zara heels. Lately I've been shying away from any shoes that are even slightly uncomfortable, but the sleek 90s minimalist aesthetic is *so* tempting.

  17. I'm really glad you went for the simpler Zara version. I think the cape on the Wang heels is pretty silly and will make them seem dated in a year or so. The ones you've got are far more classic. Good choice (and lovely outfit to go with them)!

  18. I've tried purchasing Zara shoes only to bring them home and be dissatisfied with the quality/comfort, but these look great. How do they feel?

    ReplyDelete
  19. @Anon. Nope! I almost returned them because they were really uncomfortable. But I'll deal :P Add some Dr. Scholl's and it'll help.

  20. Ah, I love the minimalism of this and the fact that you still managed to subtly add in your love of animal print to complete the outfit. Pity that the shoes aren't all that comfortable though but it's tough to have it all when it comes to shoes unfortunately

  21. so simply yet very sophisticated!

    the clutch is just perfect!

  22. Love the classic color palette that you have going on here. And that long legs of yours just make the outfit looks that much better :D. Perfection!

  25. You look gorgeous (and love the last photo with your dog!) I actually like those sandals more than the AW versions. Plus I tried on my friend's AW ones and they were the most painful shoes of my life, even if these are uncomfortable I'm not sure if they could beat out the AW ones!

  29. Love the look of the minimalistic shoe, but I'm still amazed at how they could possible stay on the feet!

  30. this is an awesome outfit, you look so fabulous in black and white and i love me some AW! I've got those Zara shoes! Can you tell me if you find them comfortable (or as comfortable as a pair of sandals with only two straps can be?)
