Chanel Spring 2015 bow loafers with ankle strap

Androgynous with a feminine twist.  Chanel's modern loafers for Spring 2015 work in several defining elements to transform a classic shoe into next seasons hottest model.  I love the smooth satin finish, the over sized flat bow, cut-out sides and sculpted back finished with an ankle strap.  There's lots to love!  Original, classy, wearable and top of my list.

Detail orientated outfit

Mandi of Find Me A Muse fashion blog outfit set with Balmain braided cropped top The Row leather skirt Lele Sadoughi gold cuff bracelet Maison Martin Margiela four set of gold rings Nina Ricci black and gold clutch and Emilio Pucci braided laced sandals heels with gold detail

GET THE LOOK:



With all the structure and minimalism that is around at the moment, it is hard not to have a moment of weakness for a few detail orientated pieces. The braiding and gold hardware of the cropped top and laced sandals really elevate everything about this look. 

I have a bit of a rule with detail.  I tend to add only one or two eye catching pieces and simplify the rest of the outfit to compliment those.  After all, heavy and excessive amounts of detail in an outfit can lead to a chaotic look that not all mere mortals are able to pull off.
