Gotta Get Gap Shoes for Spring 2010

As things get busier and busier at work, I find myself with less and less time to go shopping. I’ve started buying more things online. If I do end up going to the mall, I usually don’t have time to go to one store for a dress, another for shoes, another for jewelry, etc.

As a result, I’m always on the lookout for stores where I can get everything I need in one stop. Gap has become one of my new favorites for this exact reason; I get get an outfit and shoes in one place. It’s not always easy to find a brand that does both equally well. I’m really loving the flats and sandals at Gap this season, check them out below:

Stealing the Look: Bagdley Mischka Spring 2009

There is something undeniably sexy about Victorian-inspired items, which often tend to mix together all sorts of opulent textures. Such is the rich look created by Bagdley Mischka as part of their Spring 2009 ready-to-wear collection, where opposing elements such as delicate lace and metallic jewelry play a prominent role.

There is no question that a white dress is perfect for summer–especially this year, when neutrals are all the rage. Bagdley Mischka uses a sleeveless dress and a short sleeved cardigan on top, cinching the two at the waist with a belt. However, you can easily recreate the look with a lacy short-sleeved frock.

When it comes to accessorizing the dress, don’t be shy! Over-the-top opulence is an important part of this look. A shiny gold multi-strand necklace, as used by Bagdley Mischka, creates a beautiful contrast against the white fabric. The gold element is also reflected by the hardware on the white hand bag. You can be at your best look with Tahitian Pearls complimenting the dress.

Don’t forget to thrown on a pair of brown wedges or platform sandals that have either dark jewel accents or even more gold hardware. You may think combining so many textures together is a faux-pas, but if Bagdley Mischka did it, then you know its ok!
