Girls, you are more than welcome to choose Zara over some other fancy designer label, that costs an arm and a leg. After all, we are not all pop stars with wardrobes full of Louboutin, Jimmy Choo and YSL, right?
But please, do remember to peel off the red "alarm system" sticker all Zara shoes bear. It's not pretty and it's definitely not supposed to stay at the bottom of your new shoes.
My friend Angela - who is not shortsighted like me and is really good with details - actually spotted one of those stickers on the sole of a model's shoe on the actual runway. The horror!
We all get that warm fuzzy feeling in our hearts when we discover something we just bought is an exact match for something else already in our wardrobes. We let ourselves get silly-happy for a moment and then we resist the urge to wear them together just to prove they match. That's what I do, at least.
And let us not deal with the red plaid pants issue now. No need, right?
Actually, the orange mary-janes above (spotted right after the Andy The Ahn show) are a great example of cute, edgy and fun shoes a young woman can wear at fashion week. And further more, what an inspired combination the teal tights are!
I was very pleased to see that example.
But apparently so was the wearer herself, as she wore the exact same combo five days later, on Wednesday November 4th, at the Tassos Vrettos "Athens: City and Cinema" photography exhibition opening party (my twitpic from that evening) at the Benaki Museum.
I'm neither condemning nor condoning it. I just happened to be there to document it. As a matter of fact, I'm guilty of doing the exact same thing with my grey peep-toe booties and black tights. But I got away with it, as no-one took a picture of me on both days... Did they?
