My eyes have already turned to thoughts of fall, and that means that at least two (well, honestly, more than two) pieces from my beloved DKNY will make it into my wardrobe. When the official email for New York Fashion Week registration went out last week, the initial wave of excitement mixed with panic worked its way across my body, and then I remembered this meant another opportunity to see the DKNY presentation, which started the excitement mixed with panic of what I’m going to wear.
This bootie is one of my weeping-and-rending-of-garments-with-desire items for fall, and I am working diligently to get these in hand before September’s rush and crush of Fashion Week so I can break them in and rock them for months to come.
The rich oxblood hue is the perfect neutral, and it reminds me of all things good about the 70’s without the obligatory mention of disco. The shape is the best hybrid of menswear style (the monk strap) with all that’s good about a heeled bootie with attitude. It’s on DKNY PR Girl’s Picks list, and now it’s on mine.
