“What should I wear?” If we women could get a dollar for every time we asked ourselves that very question! And if it’s for a date, it can get even more complicated. Most women spend hours figuring out and tweaking that perfect outfit for a rendez-vous but sometimes forget that the most important thing is the type of shoes you wear. If your date is short, you don’t want to tower over him with four inch heels. Or if you’re going for a walk on at the beach, you might want to put your stilettos away.
You first have to do a little planning. Find out where you’re going so that you’ll know how much walking or standing you’ll be doing and you can sport the right pair of shoes. That should also include where you might end up. You can try heels and carry flats with you or just decide on a glamorous pair of ballet shoes. There are a variety in casual or with a touch of elegance, most of all- they are extremly comfortable and go with almost any type of outfit. Appropriate for miniature golf, bowling, movies, dog walking, dinner, dancing–you name it. For formal dates, choose heels or wedges.
Make sure you’re completly relaxed in them so that you’re not worried about falling over rather than having fun on your date. Try to stay away from sandals and flip flops. You may not want to show off your feet especially on a first date ( for those of you behind on your pedicures). Instead, wear something that expresses your personality. If it’s a first date, you can go with something sexy added with a classy twist like a striking dress. Remember, don’t give too much away on the first date!
The Prom queen By MeadHam Kirchhoff
Although many designers envisioned a youthful and colorful indulgence for their spring collections this year, one particularly caught the attention of the realm of fashion with their new wave approach to childhood indulgence and brought it to a new level. Now you can bring back that glittering retro flare without shame.
Meadham Kirchhoff Spring 2012
Meadham Kirchhoff’s pieces were not only girly, fun and outrageous, the theme of the runway show reminded one of a mix between a young Courtney Love with a tacky high school overlay. The curtains were weaved in with golden confetti, there were bright balloons floating everywhere and to top it all off the center of the show had dancers parading throughout the whole time.
It was all very entertaining and if the clothes weren’t eye catching enough, the distractions and adorable little girls parading in ballerina outfits certainly were. It was all very 80’s, like a kaleidoscope snapshot encapsulating the frills, the glitter and playfulness of the era, not to mention the soundtrack of well known hit wonders.
The models were adorned with beehive and bed head hair styles, with splashes of color from baby pink to teal and lilac. Their cheeks were painted with exaggerated red circles, some were also seen wearing hearts and stars, and their eyes were framed with heart shaped glasses or rimmed with heavy neon eyeshadow.
Kirchhoff particularly paid attention to detail, when he came out with his own individual nail polish stickers, now available for sale to the public online.
There were plenty of teddy bear patched cardigans, grandmother knits, spice girl inspired platform shoes, brightly colored thigh high stockings and cheerful fluttering skirts. Tulle was often seen worn with heavy cut necklines, high waisted shorts and playsuits paired with chunky pompom appliqués.
The peter pan collar made an interesting comeback with it’s contrasting colors against the layers of lace and fuzz while the neon faux fur shawls dragged about the floor. Ribbons and bows were also a popular accessory of the collection, seen tying up the short frilled baby doll dresses from the back or hovering above the shoulder blades.
So whether you’re wanting to make a statement or digging into some thrift stores for retro treasures from the 80′s, make sure to add an extra pop of color and playfulness to your everyday wardrobe, because a little fun never hurt anyone.
