I’m an old school kind of gal. I love Frank Sinatra, Audrey Hepburn is one of my idols, I’m obsessed with pencil skirts and I’m dying for a pair of oxfords. I don’t really wear flats but if they made a pair of oxfords with some heel to them I’d buy them in a heartbeat! However, I do love looking at oxfords because I believe them to be highly stylish especially if you love old school fashion.
Everyone knows I’m a sucker for tassels and fringe. When it comes to handbags, fringe has sort of become one of those “trends” that never really goes away. Fringe pops up on other accessories too, like shoes and jewelry. All are wonderful in my book! But what about fringe on a belt? The thought took me back to my middle school days, when hippie-inspired pieces were in. I had a cream crocheted belt with the loose string ends dangling free. The Maison Martin Margiela Fringe Belt is different though. What gives this belt a more updated look is the extra wide width (3 inches) and over sized rectangular buckle (instead of a tie closure). It is also a tighter knit, rather than an open crochet. Plus it’s black and black is always timeless! Simply wear it over one of today’s long tunic tops and you have yourself a fresh new look!

While on vacation last summer, my husband and I stopped in Manitou Springs, Colorado. We were headed to the Cave of the Winds, but decided to stop in town for a bit. To our surprise, they had a very large outdoor arcade there. They had new games, old games, and really old games! My favorite, of course, was the original Pac Man game. My husband seemed to like it too, since he wouldn’t stop feeding it quarters! So when I saw the Monserat De Lucca Pac Man Earrings, you know I had to add them to my wish list!
Yes, they are a little nerdy. But they are so cute too. The mismatched set has one earring shaped like good old Pac Man himself and the other earring is shaped like a ghost. Wait… where are the power pellets? He can’t munch on that ghost without them! Ah, I know, just for fun you could pair these earrings with a faux pearl necklace. I’m sure Pac Man won’t be able to tell the difference!

Astronomy has always fascinated me so I’m sure it comes as no surprise when I say that I always loved the space program. At one point in my life, I dreamed about being an astronaut. I thought it would be so cool to go up to space and see everything we see in the books. Can you imagine seeing the moon, planets and stars in close distance? That would be insane but amazing at the same time.
When I spotted the Maison Martin Margiela “Metallic” Flat Sneakers I instantly thought of an astronaut. If a designer had wanted to spruce up a space suit and make it more stylish, the astronauts would be wearing these babies. Obviously, someone couldn’t wear these in space but they look definitely look fashionable in an outer space kind of way.
I personally would never wear these, unless it was Halloween because they don’t fit my sense of style. However, I will admit they are pretty awesome looking! These are the type of shoes that would catch everyone’s eye as you walk by. They are so shiny, how can you not! A+ for making them so unique looking Maison!

I love unique looking accessories. To me, when you can find something that it so off the wall and people have never seen it before then I feel like I’ve accomplished something. If people can say, “Oh my gosh, that’s so cool. I’ve never seen that before”, that’s amazing. Why would you want to wear or be like anyone else, when you can be you?
The MM6 Maison Martin Margiela “Knot” Necklace is a prime example of an accessory that I love and would buy in a heart beat. I’ve definitely seen jewelry that is knotted before but never something that just looks like a black tube that’s tied up. It gives no indication that this is a piece of jewelry from far away. It literally looks like someone went to Home Depot, got some black tubing, tied it together and called it a necklace! I love it! Such a great and random piece to have in any fashion collection. Wear it day or night, it’s fabulous!

Maison Martin Margiela isn’t afraid to think out of the box and try something different. Just checkout their latest interpretation design of the (umm, yeah) Camel Toe – the “Maison Martin Margiela Tabi Booties”.
The split-toe booties are made of severely distressed leather, giving it a more rugged-esque look. Also features a super thick and chunky crepe sole (3″ height + 6″ shaft). When it comes to sizing, make note that the shoes are Italian fit so they may run a little small compared to what you size you usually wear. I would size down atleast a 1/2 from your usual.
