It was two years ago that Shan purchased a hot pair of booties for her first holiday session as a family of 3.  She has since worn said footwear zero times.  That’s right – not a once, not even on a whim.  Typically I would notice something like this.  After all I can’t remember what day of the week it is but if a person wants to know what they wore on any given day since knowing me – there’s a good chance I’ll remember.  Call it what you will (psycho, useless, weird) but I have a remarkable fashion memory.  Such a gift includes having a mental filing cabinet of all my closest friends’ closets.  Have I mentioned I am not crazy?  Somehow these boots slipped through the cracks and Shan has gotten away with neglect.  I love a challenge, especially one that involves a topic I’m passionate about.   Using items she already owns (with just a few accessories borrowed from me) I gave Shan 3 looks she can rock now.

Smart Date Night –  a night with your man does not always have to involve an obviously sexy ensemble or the color black.  A denim shirt pairs with almost any skirt.  Top it off with a statement necklace and the look is chic.  Which is sexy.  Which is hot.

Fun and Easy – we all need those go to looks that can be thrown on and  feel put together without having to think.  This would be one to keep in the arsenal.  There is nothing easier than a jean jacket and dress.  With booties and a crossbody bag – well that’s just seriously trendy and seriously cute.

Booties: similar, similar & similar

Obviously it is impossible for Shan to not look amazing.  It does warm my heart to see her looking her impossibly cute self in those booties now.  What else are you not wearing Shan?

    Beauty! Shan, you look so natural in front of the camera- i’m jealous! My mantra this year is to shop my closet as much as possible. So many treasures hide in there! Great booties.
