Happy Hump Day! This week has been such a mix of emotions for me. In Monday’s post, I talked about getting some unanticipated news last week. News that wasn’t exactly thrilling, and not something I was prepared for. I’m still not ready to talk about it. Then on Monday night, one of my absolute favorite designers, Oscar de la Renta passed away. ODLR was a design genius, no doubt, but what I loved most about him was his appetite for life. Also, I love that he was never afraid to use bright colors in his designs! Most NY designers stick to black, but ODLR was full of life, and it showed in his designs. The one thing I’ve noticed since his passing, all across social media, is that there are two terms that are repeated over and over when talking about him – elegant, and gentleman. There was something about him, and his designs, that just brought happiness to everyone. His smile was contagious, and his absence will most certainly be felt heavily. May his kind soul rest in peace.
You guys would never believe where I scored these tan suede boots! Well, they’re faux suede, but anyways, last year I was desperately on the hunt for a pair of OTK tan suede boots. I just feel like that’s a closet staple, no? Then I saw these on Instagram, and couldn’t believe they were from Forever 21! By the time I got around to buying them, they were also 50% off! Every time I wear them, I get so many compliments. This year, Forever 21 has got a similar pair of tan suede boots, and I love those just as much! They’re a total steal!
