T-strap heels and three inch mid-heel pumps are the new trend for fall. All the street style stars are wearing them, and all the stores are selling them now. These t-strap mid-heel pumps from Victoria’s Secret look great with some skinny jeans and even some late summer shorts or boyfriend jeans. They come in black and cider red which looks more like cider brown to me. The mid-heel pumps are also made of kid suede. They are priced at $98 and have adjustable straps with a 2¾” heel. Check them out now! Photo from Victoria’s Secret.
So I am really angry with Fox and ABC. If you haven’t heard already, they censored the Lane Bryant lingerie ad from their channels. Now don’t I see that Victoria’s Secret Naked ad playing all over the place, but place a fat girl in a bra and some panties and all hell breaks loose. Do you think the networks were wrong? And can someone tell me the difference between the two ads besides the size of the models.

Milan Fashion Week was very short. It really isn’t as long as the other fashion weeks. I mean it really doesn’t even last a week. Anyway. I really was not as impressed with the clothes this season. I usually love Milan Fashion Week. Just like Paris, the clothes are usually very sophisticated. I was a little disappointed with what I saw. To me most of the fashion from Milan either looked bland or played out. I couldn’t even get into my favorites like Fendi and Albino. Je suis tres triste. Photos from Style.com.
I did like Gucci, Dsquared, and Prada. Gucci was very sexy and 70s Italian chic. I thought Anja and Freja did a good job of portraying the looks. The lace was hot. The models flowing hair was hot. The coats were gorgeous and I loved the pantsuits. The collection actually make me wants to wear pantsuits again.
Dsquared was so beautiful. I love the use of the colors black and red to make a very sophisticated, sexy collection. I know the PETA people are going to be after me, but I loved the fur coat that Chanel Iman wore. Gorgeous!
Prada had an old school Mad Men look to it. Everything was very 60s looking. The cast of Mad Men could even wear some of these clothes next season. I don’t know if they are but it would be to their advantage. I also have to applaud Miuccia for calling some curvy Victoria’s Secret models in at that last minute because the other models were too small. If you are looking for the best coats and sweaters next fall, go to your local Prada store.
