Don’t worry, the snakeskin is faux!  Slither into these boots with a little black dress and a black leather moto jacket, and you’ll be looking rocker chic in no time!  Platform, no platform, heels, wedges, take your pick!

Love,

Outfit of the Day

Today’s blog outfit is inspired by the brown and white polka dot dress that Julia Roberts wore in the movie, Pretty Woman. Remember that gorgeous silky dress Vivian wears as she’s stomping on divots at the horse race?  My dress is nowhere near as gorgeous as that one, but it still reminds me of it!

I completed the look with a white cardigan, navy pair of Jeffrey Campbell shoes, a touch of red lipstick, and wavy hair that I created with my triple-barrel waver iron.

To make polka dots work for you, pair them with sophisticated separates and a seemingly effortless beauty regimen.  Keep your eye makeup simple and your jewelry classic and old-fashioned.  In Pretty Woman, Vivian transformed from a hooker into an elegant lady in a brown polka-dot dress.  Just wait and see how classy and elegant you’ll feel when you try one on!

Love,

Outfit of the Day

Today’s look was inspired by my nostalgic feeling to re-embrace my history with over-the-top high heel shoes.

This Spring add some fun to your look with a punch of color, a touch of prints, and flirty flared skirt.

IMG_2726I accessorized this look with a gold-chain belt taken from one of my other dresses and I added a large-faced black Armani Exchange watch to make this girly look a little more slick.

Happy Friday!

3 Fashion Trends that Women Love but Men Hate

Ever love something that other people think you’re crazy for?  It’s times like these when it’s good to be the kind of person that dresses to impress oneself and not others.

1. Jean Overalls

I remember back to high-school when I had a pair of baggy blue jean overalls from Miss Sixty.  I was in love with them, but I was the only one!  I’ve yet to find a guy who endorses women wearing overalls, but nonetheless they’re prevalent in all the hottest fashion retailers for women.

2. Wide-leg pants

They’re making a comeback this season.  I love them because they’re comfortable and they have that perfect balance between being a pant and being swanky and comfortable like a dress.  These pants have varying degrees of wideness depending on the pair, so you can choose to stay relatively tame or go completely nuts in a pair like the ones featured below.

3. clogs

The chunky-ness adds a level of grunge chic and comfort that other high heels do not.

All of the above pictures have one thing in common.  They were all on sale. Hmm..maybe women don’t love these trends after all.  Or do too many women care about what men think?

I have to admit that my current closet does not contain a pair of jean overalls, wide leg pants, or clogs, but I’ve been tempted by overalls and wide-leg pants many times.  What do you think of these trends?

Love,

How To Keep White Shoes Clean

Haha, the title’s an oxymoron.  You can’t!

But here’s why you shouldn’t care.  This season white is everywhere.  From tops, to pants, to dresses, and down to your shoes, the color of purity is key.

Shoes will inevitably get dirty or scuffed-up the more you wear them, and yes these marks are easier to see on white fabric, but white shoes have their time and place.  These Giuseppe Zanotti’s would look devilishly good with a pair of white skinny jeans to wear to the bar.

If you’re dressing up for the evening, add a little bit of sparkle with these rhinestone peep-toe pumps from Nordstrom.

White shoes will look great paired with a pair of white jeans, a summer flare dress, or even something as casual as blue jean overalls.  Avoid puddles and dirt if possible, but other than that, it’s time to give your white shoes some street time.

J. Molly

Get a little funky in these DSquared off-kilter beauties below.  Buying a pair of shoes with a normal heel is like going on a Tinder date; you’re wearing something that everyone has experienced before but nobody likes.  So opt for a pair of high heel sandals that have a slightly weird sculptured heel.  These heels below are perfectly Springy with blue flowers and perfectly original with an off-kilter heel.  And for 100% of your weekly paycheck they can be all yours!

Unfortunately these pink booties are sold out.  Perhaps it’s because of the lovely rounded heel, the enormously high platform, the lovely pink color, or the hot sexy back cut-out, but these Jeffrey Campbell shoes are no longer on the market.  With all the other shoes listed above, hopefully there will be another pair that sparks your interest.  For all the latest style trends, shopping tips, and hottest looks keep your eye on Molly’s Runway.

High Heel Shoes or Architectural Masterpieces?

My favorite kinds of shoes are the ones you look at and think, what the fuck is going on there?

Think about it, when you’re at a museum, the most amazing works of art are the ones that make you want to stare at them for more than five seconds.

So I have compiled a bundle of shoes that have made me take a second look.  Should they be classified as shoes? works of art? pieces of architecture? or pure genius?

Be a Style Icon in Bodycon

Dress: Forever 21

Dress: Forever 21

With the Spring approaching and warm weather on the rise, it’s time to do your legs some justice in bodycon silhouettes.  I experimented with my new navy bodycon dress from Forever 21, pairing it with different jewelry, different accessories, and colorful clothes.

Try pairing a solid-color dress with big, chunky, colorful jewelry like a bold pair of statement earrings or a statement necklace.  To add a touch of boho to the look, throw on some hair jewelry, either in the form of a chain headpiece or a jeweled headband.

IMG_2174

To make your look more casual, try wearing a basic casual shirt over the dress.  You’ll still get the appeal of the tight body-forming skirt without having the entire skin-tight dress showing.

IMG_2213

Top: Forever 21

Next, it’s time to spice up the look with a colorful moto jacket.  I paired the navy dress with a 3.1 Philip Lim zip up jacket.  Leave it unzipped for a more casual, informal look.

 IMG_2251 IMG_2253 IMG_2238

To make the outfit a touch more glamorous, I added a Swarovski necklace.  Keep the jewelry simple when wearing a bold jacket so that you don’t have too many pieces fighting for all the attention.

Last but not least, I wore a pair of Jeffrey Campbell pointed toe stiletto pumps.  Because after all, Jeffrey Campbell can make every outfit a bit more special…

IMG_2248

 So have fun with bodycon styles this Spring.  Make them casual, make them fancy, make them sexy, or make them conservative…the choice is yours.

Love,

J. Molly

No, I did not photoshop the height of these sandals.  They are perfect just the way they are. If anyone can come up with a good suggestion for where to wear a pair of shoes like this, I will be thoroughly impressed.  I’d suggest avoiding stairs, bumpy sidewalks, and a pebbly ground.

Enjoy with care.

Here are some valuable tips from me to you:

You’re only as cool as the shoes on your feet.

You can’t fuck up a first impression if your shoes are in style.

People WILL judge you by your shoes.

No pain, no gain.

Fashion speaks louder than words.  Let your shoes do the screaming.
