Fashion is a funny thing. It’s very personal and subjective. A simple detail or element that makes one person look like a million bucks can make someone else look like a Glamour Don’t. What is appealing to Jane is appalling to Joyce. Consider these two boots; Exhibit A the Kiki Wedge Boot by Tory Burch:
and Exhibit B , the Ash Zubroska Apres Ski Boot:
You all know I’m a fan of Tory Burch (especially her angelic ballet flats – see post dated 10/14/11) but I look at this boot and wonder “What was she thinking?” It’s just wrong on so many levels. And then there’s the Ash boot. Again, I’m a big fan of Ash but will readily point out their fashion fails (see post dated 11/08/11). However, there is something about this Apres Ski boot that speaks to me, whereas I want to run far, far away from the Tory Burch version. Is it the choice of fur? The colors? The jaunty use of pom-poms that is a game changer? I can’t figure it out. I’ve been staring at these two boots for much longer than I care to admit and I don’t have an answer.
What do you think? Do you love them both, hate them both, prefer one to the other? Leave us a comment with your opinion and maybe together we can crack the deep mysteries of the fashion universe…
