Flip Flops: Fashion Do or Don’t?

There’s absolutely no way to put this to you lightly. There’s no elegant way to introduce this topic and reel you in with some intriguing debate on the flipflop ordeal.

The answer is YES. FLIP-FLOPS ARE FASHION SUICIDE. Don’t even get me started on wedged flip-flops, or wearing any type of flip-flop to an event…

Not only are flip flops ridiculously ugly, they are known to carry large amounts of bacteria. The only thing flip flops have ever been good for are getting pedicures. Seriously – Senior Style Editor of InStyle , Ali Pew, even says so.

For all you everyday goers who don’t really care about the fashion world and live for an easy, not too interested style, then you do you. Flip Flops are completely normal.

For my style loving Fashionistas, well, for anyone interested in even a little bit of style, all I have to say is don’t you dare. You’re no fashionista to me *hair flip*.

Now, if you can’t differentiate what I mean by flip-flops, I’m referring to the shoes with the ‘thong’ in them. Sandals, or ‘slides’ are a completely different alternative for the summer shoe. So if you’re ready to drop those flippies to the shoe devil, then check out some of these amazing summer sandals.

Spring Shoe Fever…

Ok… I can not stress this enough… ASOS’s collection of kitten heels and bright metallic spring shoes are literally TO-DIE-FOR. Ugh, it’s my dream to own every pair and to have the outfits to style with them… All I can picture is running through fields of flowers in flowing 50s inspired skirts in these shoes. I love them all so incredibly much, I figured I would share them with you… Which ones do you like best?

Feeling a lot of black, white and nude colors lately. It seems that the current ‘in’ is simplicity in the most elegant form. Hope this inspires your week!  (All picture sources can be found on my Tumblr Page…. www.stylestudiesx.tumblr.com )

Fashion Blogger Spotlight: That Pommie Girl

Instagram is my favorite place to explore new stores and bloggers. I always find the best deals, special/unique brands, and outfit inspiration. One of my favorite bloggers of the moment is Sarah Ashcroft, the UK fashion blogger for That Pommie Girl. She doesn’t only have to-die-for style, but her makeup is always gorgeous! Trust me, I wouldn’t waste your time… Her page is really worth checking out. She posts makeup tutorial videos on youtube, and even gives you pay-day inspiration from multiple different stores. In case you’re just a bit curious, here are some of my recent favorite looks from her page…

UGG-spiration

Hey guys!

So, winter/cold weather is quickly arriving and that gets me excited particularly for gorgeous boots and scarves!! But there always comes a fashion dilemma – UGGs. They have been shunned in the fashion world, yet are still a must-have (in my books). Well, sorry fashion gurus, but UGGs are amazing in the winter – super warm and unbelievably comfortable.

Now yes – they’re not upperclass fashion world, but they’re a great go-to and my first choice for some simple yet chic, quick, street style. Believe it or not, even designers like Michael Kors, Coach, River Island, Stella McCartney, make their own ugg-type boots, but not even the top designers can compare.

There are even tons of celebrities rocking UGGs on the streets!

Blake Lively – Kim Kardashian – Hillary Duff – Miley Cyrus – Mila Kunis – Jennifer Aniston – Penelope Cruz – Elle Macpherson -Gwen Stefani – Megan Fox – Vanessa Hudgens 

AND so many more!!

Even the iconic Sarah Jessica Parker wears them about, as well as Leighton Meester and her fashion obsessed character Blair Waldorff who wears them on screen!
