Shoe of the Week- Perfect Music Festival Shoes

Charlotte Russe Sueded Mary Jane Jute Wedge

Music festival season is coming up fast. Whether you choose to go to Coachella or the Moog Fest, you need cute shoes.  The Sueded Mary Jane Jute Wedge at Charlotte Russe looks great with maxi skirts, short skirts, rompers, short sets, and jeans. Plus wedges are the perfect look for an outdoor festival, especially the jute style wedges and espadrilles that Style Icons Dita von Teese and Alexa Chung are wearing. You want to something to get you through all that grass, and little spindly heels won’t do it. If you aren’t going to a festival, you can at least wear these all spring and summer long. The Sueded Mary Jane Jute Wedge at Charlotte Russe is only $38.50, but they always have BOGO sales so you can buy multiple pairs. Photos from here, here, and here.

Luxury Lust- Mulberry Bayswater Tote

Mulberry Bayswater Tote

I love the Mulberry Bayswater Tote. There is just something so classic about it. I love all of the color options it comes in. The Mulberry Bayswater Tote is up on the list of purses I will own one day next to a PS 1, Chanel Jumbo, and a Hermes Birkin. It just will happen. I am totally putting this $1500 purse, along with the others on the list, out there into the universe. Photo from Lyst.

Alexa Chung and PBS???

Yes it is totally true! Alexa Chung is going to have a show on PBS with Style.com’s special projects editor, Maya Singer. By the time her MTV show finally grew on, it was canceled. I actually think her PBS show will do well though. Why? While I realize that PBS has a different audience, I think that station’s audience will appreciate the nature of her show “Thrift America”.

Chung and Singer are going to go around the country thrift shopping and looking for unique vintage pieces. If the other women who frequent that channel won’t watch, no worries. I’m sure the hipsters that follow Alexa Chung’s every move will watch a style show on PBS for the kitsch factor alone.

This is what the New York Times has to say about the new show:

Think of it as “Antiques Roadshow” meets the foodie romp “Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations.” Ms. Singer said viewers hoping to replicate Ms. Chung’s high-low style will see firsthand, “What does Alexa Chung pull out of the crap bin at the yard sale?”
