Fourteen years ago today, Princess Diana died in a horrific car crash that cost her life in a Paris tunnel. The passing of the Princess of Wales stunned many. In the memory of her death we look back at the fashion that made her an icon.
Despite her high-profile position, Princess Diana was known for taking risks in terms of her fashion. She was not afraid of vibrant color, revealing cuts and hems or ornate jewelry pieces. Princess Diana exuded class and poise that radiated confidence. She will always be remembered for her beauty and eternal elegance. She will be forever embedded into our hearts as the “people’s princess.”
Summer might not be over quite yet but boots are definitely walking all over the runway and ready for your shoe closet! After months of open-toes and backless shoes it could be a little difficult to transition from your favorite slip-ons to this seasons ankle or knee-highs.
The most noticeable boot seems to be the most delicate for style disaster. They are the knee-highs. These boots are tricky because they can easily cross over from sexy to street-walker with the wrong outfit. Everyone loves Julia Roberts but not exactly her look in Pretty Woman. With boots that command sex appeal on their own, the best approach to these attention grabbers is off setting them with leggings and a tunic. If you are worried about taking this into the winter season switch out the tunic for an oversized sweater or sweater dress. Short-shorts and skirts are a definite no-no. Keep the daunting image of Julia Roberts’ character in the back of your head and you should be fine. Instead use Hilary Duff as a muse. Her effortless style here takes these boots to a whole new ground.
Ankle boots are another season must-have. These boots are a bit more versatile because they can be dressed up or down. They can easily be paired with a dress or your favorite skinny jeans. For the cooler seasons ankle boots will be your go-to shoes for your everyday. If your on a budget try to stick to two rules when buying these. Look for one that is embellished and one that is neutral. For the embellished boot, try either going for a print like leopard or studs. For the neutral boot look for something that has either very little or no decoration like buckles or buttons and can be paired with just about everything in your closet.
Try these celeb style look-a-like boots that are a great alternative to their more pricey versions. Enjoy!
So this is officially MY FIRST POST!!!!!!
(Sorry had to get that out of my system)
Although one may first look at the blog name and assume this is about:
Sorry to disappoint! It is about neither! This blog is inspired by fashion, beauty, travel, entertainment and any other types of shenanigans I get myself into. The reason I named it LA WATER is after the drink. It has just about everything you can get your hands on in your alcohol cabinet which is exactly what I will be blogging about… Everything I can get my hands on! For my first post it seems only appropriate to give you the recipe for LA WATER so you can make, sip, and read along! Enjoy!
