I first spied Isa Tapia’s beautiful footwear on My Chameleon earlier this year where I become somewhat obsessed with her insanely cool lace-up booties and super slick heels. So when I got to meet the lady herself during NYFW and check out the new collection it was pretty much my idea of shoe heaven. I couldn’t help but take these snakeskin embossed booties back home with me – and I have to admit I’ve been wearing them nonstop since.
Get Chiara’s look: Burgundy fedora, Jo No Fui maxi sweater (similar sweater here) and Jo No Fui leather skirt with patch pockets (alternative leather skirt here and here), Azzurra Gronchi bag and patent leather ankle boots with buckle
Italian stylist Chiara is one of those girls who somehow manages to look eternally cool every time I see her – seemingly without trying. Her style is the perfect balance of interesting, eclectic and relaxed. And it’s always so lovely to see a natural beauty completely fresh-faced during Fashion Week – although to be fair with such amazing hair Chiara hardly needs much else.
My favourite way to wear a bustier – dressed down and worn over a casual tee. I’m always a little envious of girls with red hair; so fiery, bold and totally negates the need for anything but a simple, monochromatic wardrobe.
Rumi has California cool down to a fine art. It’s often an expected mix of gypsy-like fabrics paired with slick, minimal pieces – like this sparkling crop and crisp white leather Friend of Mine dress. It’s always a happy surprise the most unlikely pieces come together so naturally.
