I read an article in the TeenVogue Handbook (which you need to check out by the way) about this company, TOMS, that makes simple woven shoes and for every pair sold, another is given to a child in third world countries without shoes. It's a great idea. The shoes have a very simple design, the original ones are slip ons, but now there's even wedges!!! The only drawback is the cost, slip on shoes are $48, but the wedges I want are $70. Now I understand that the higher cost is necessary since another pair go to a child, and it's not completely unreasonable, so I might get a pair. :) Check it out: http://www.toms.com
Looking through Alexander Wang's resort collection, I was once again reminded why he is such a brilliant designer. Every collection is filled with clothes for a strong, independent woman who knows to how play with traditional archetypes and make them unique. I can see myself wearing nearly all of his pieces, I am one of those strong independent women.
You should definitely check out the collection. I didn't really like the styling of the models though. Their hair looked greasy and uncombed, but other than that, it was a great resort collection.
