Any who; was walking in the mall passing Bakers and something caught my eye. In the past my knowledge of Bakers has been vague, but I noticed they now carry more brands that one would find at say, a Macy’s. The little lovely to the left; gray suede upper, cream leather- cross straps and flower applique, peep toe, with a zip closure in back was what made me actually walk into the store. Guess what brand they were…. *drum roll*… Dereon.
That’s right. I honestly couldn’t believe it myself. The ready-to-wear line created by Beyonce and her mother in 2006 has left me disappointed. However after seeing this shoe I got to thinking; could they have gotten the hint? Did someone whisper something in their ears? If that person was me I’d say: “Hey B, maybe instead of going the Baby Phat route, perhaps you should think Jessica Simpson-esque.” This shoe seems to follow that path (only in this color-way unfortunately). For about $80, you can have the look for less. Let’s make a whole fit of it:
Pair with this sweater dress from Forever 21 for $20 and a sweet little cardigan- and you’ve got yourself a lovely, fresh spring look. ~C.M.
