I’ve been browsing the Pre-Fall 2015 collections, and am thrilled to see that many designers are embracing flat footwear: Joseph, Tibi, M.Patmos, Thom Browne, Elizabeth and James, Public School, Gucci (a mix of stunning flat and high-heeled oxfords), and Michael Kors among others. I’m hoping this means we’ll have plenty of beautiful flats to choose from in stores come Fall too.
I also enjoyed this Guardian article in which four women discuss how they won’t be going back to wearing high heels anytime soon, and talk about their favourite styles and brands of flat footwear.

Shevia loved Sylvia’s interview with Lyn from Accidental Icon. Her favourite quote: “So for me rather than surgery or other anti-aging remedies, focusing on clothing and developing a unique and different style is how I have responded to aging.”
Marlene came across this Huffington Post article about trends we should be happy to see on the way out.
Carolyn Bessette showed us that ’90s bootcuts and subtle shoulder pads looked fab. Angie is also loving Gucci’s glam ‘70s inspiration in their 2015 Pre-Fall collection. Hello bootcuts and flared legs.
LadyLilac enjoyed this post on ways to style white skinny jeans, as it always helps to see how other people style various items.
Deb and UmmLila report that Coach has bought Stuart Weitzman for $574 million.
Annagybe came across an interesting experiment: a model tried on 10 different pairs of size 16 jeans to demonstrate there is a huge variation in sizing out there.
Ingunn likes how Norwegian TV personality/actor/designer Jenny Skavlan has made a name for herself by redesigning clothing. For this very different Christmas calendar, she styled and redesigned a black shirtdress 24 ways. Fun!
