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.

Couture Fashion Week is basically over now. They have a few jewelery shows today, but that is about it. I can’t wait for RTW fashion week to begin in September. Aren’t you excited? Photos from Style.com.
Jean Paul Gaultier’s collection was straight film noir vixen. Awesome turbans, exaggerated shoulders, and nipped waists were all on that runway. Then Dita von Teese came out and stripped burlesque style. I wish I was there to take in the atmosphere. One day Jai, one day.
The designers at Valentino made sure the collection was for the young at heart. Short babydoll dresses and kitten heels were popular themes throughout the collection. I have to say I actually like this collection better than the past collections that Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli and have done for the brand.
If the Valentino collection was for the young at heart, then the Elie Saab collection was for the sexually aware, yet classy woman. The collection was full of fiery reds, bare legs, and deep v-cut necklines. Elie Saab did not disappoint me at all. Between this collection and Dior, you really see what couture is all about. Oh and did anybody catch Karolina Kurkova walking the Elie Saab show? I guess it is safe to safe that the Victoria Secret models have successfully merged back from couture to commercial to couture again.
DITA VON TEESE IS NOT SAFE FOR WORK !!!! SERIOUSLY….WHEW!
This chick even exercises in full make-up.
