British Booty and German Hose–From a Girl Who Knows Her Way Around the Globe. Fashiontribes LA Story!
British Booty and German Hose
The Brits are hipper and sexier than ever. Whether it’s Kate Moss, Double O Sexy or the soulful seduction of Coldplay we can’t get enough. “Oh to be a hip Brit…” If not blessed with the passport, education or the accent, you can at least walk a mile in their shoes or boots.
J Shoes, a definitively British line offers an eclectic mix of hip shoes and European boots. Boots like jeans are today’s fashion staple. It’s not enough to have just one pair. You need several different boots to suit your mood, your look, your event or perhaps your partner.
It’s easy to step out in style as J Shoes has it all with their pointed flats, wooden heeled wedgies, striped booties, animal prints and the definitively European round toe seen everywhere across the pond. With their signature moulded heel, J Shoes offers the highest quality of casual, provocative and inspirational shoes and boots. Not subscribing to the seasonal tends, they remain one step ahead of what’s hip for the well heeled.
It’s no wonder The Black Eyed Peas, Earth Wind and Fire, Lauren Hill and The Ying Yang Twins have all rocked and wrapped themselves in these boots.
The company was found by artists and is managed by optimists. It is a hip sexy line of boots for those that want to step out and make a statement…with or without the accent.
The boots are very affordable for the high-end quality, ranging between $140 and $300. Sold online at: www.zappos.com
To compliment the British boot, be sure to put your best leg forward. Today, it’s not enough to have great legs. Legs now need to be well heeled and well dressed. This season get retro with your legs, stepping back in time as you slip in to 60’s inspired leggings, 80’s great leg warmers or a timeless pair of cashmere sox.
The best leg accessory of the season is hosiery. It can be worn all year long with shorts, skirts or dresses or alone. Look at your hose as your leg palette. There are many ways to express yourself this season with different styles, textures and patterns. There are more than fishnets and back seams on today’s scene.
German based Falke women’s collection is inspired by eastern folklore and western modern trends. The truly inspired line has many stockings and sexy pull ups on offer. Their hosiery collection consists of Modern Times, Bohemian Voyage, Arts and Crafts and Celebrity.
Modern Times is influenced by the austere purist Parisian style of the Haute Couture a la Chanel and Dior. Think pinstripes, checks and argyles. Bohemian Voyage combines French baroque with Russian folklore a la Versailles. Think decadent royalty. Arts and Crafts is Pop-Art, Swing and Carnaby Street. There are wools, cashmeres and fluffy arm and leg warmers. Celebrity is as it should be…Glittery and Transparent!
Prices ranging from $40 to $200. Available in the US only at Love Jones at The Hard Rock Hotel in Vegas where more hose are rolled down than up. # 702 693 5007 or online: www.falke-shop.com or www.falke.com
