Tis The Season To Be...Fresh, Part Deux.
For Her: Utilitarian Chic and Heavy Metals.
William Rasts' Fall/Winter 2010 runway show forecasts an ode to utilitarian style all the way down to the feet. The shoes displayed above and below are huge staples of this winter. Lace ups with military-esqe flair (i.e. tassels, buckles, perforated patterns, etc.) are combined with platform soles and 4-5 inch heels to embrace the officer look. Pairing these boots with leggings, long tees and military style jackets or even a pair of your favorite boyfriend jeans would make for a rugged girl look. Of course, these functional boots are not strictly relegated to pants; they look just as awesome when paired with skirts.
I personally LOVE the William Rast perforated lace up booties but, at $398.00 they could be a bit of a price stretch for some. Take a peek at the other boots I've pulled. Your feet will be pleased. :).

If there is one thing that plenty of women spend money on without a second guess, it's manicures and pedicures. What better gift to give this holiday season than a trip to the nail shop and a pretty color to call your own? Metallic polishes are my favorite shade right now and Chanel's newest polish - which is from their Spring 2011 La Vernis collection, Steel, is dark enough to give a hint of attitude and at $23.00 its a perfect stocking stuffer for your favorite girl on the go.
To purchase Chanel's La Vernis "Steel" Polish, head on over to the CHANEL cosmetics site.
If you desire warmer hues or something a bit more metal-like, check out OPI's Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous or Dior's Vernis Nail Enamel in Czarina Gold.
