I love when I open my email and notice a lovely update from style.com in my inbox. That, and the WWD morning reports are great to wake up to. So I was happy yesterday when I received the Fall 2009 Accessory Report, only to click and be directed to a huge list of designers. After sorting through over 500 photos of shoes, bags, and jewelry, I saved about a quarter of them to my desktop with the intention of posting my favorites. Needless to say I have to break them up into separate posts but who cares, right? More posts for you!
Part one: Booties! It took me a while to get into this style, mainly because when I heard "booties" I initially thought of the akward, square-toed ankle boots my mom used to wear in the fall and winter. Now I can't get enough of them!
To be honest I was quite surprised with some of these. Designers that I typically ADORE (ahem, Proenza Schouler) really didn't have anything that were that amazing to me, except this one pair of boots. On the other hand, designers that I typically don't care for, like Donna Karen & Coach, had some of the best (umm HELLO purple booties, I am drooling all over my keyboard). It was interesting.
