Would You Rock These? Acne Loafer Pilgrim Heel Things

I’m all for combining weird things. Flamin Hot Cheetos and whipped cream cheese? Delicious! Ice-T and Coco? The perfect couple. French fries dipped in milkshakes? Yum-town USA (sorry I’m hungry). BUT there are limits. For example, this Acne hybrid loafer-stiletto kind of makes me feel weird in my soul. Besides the fact that is essentially has two heels and looks super uncomfortable, the pilgrim-esque buckle is really throwing my eyeballs off their game. But just as some people like peanut-butter with pickles (EW GROSS FREAKS), some people might like these shoes? Maybe?

What do you think of ’em?

Summer Essentials

From Vanity Fair Fashion Dept.
By Michael Carl

As I put away my winter sweaters and pulled out my shorts and summer tees earlier this week, I thought to myself, “This is going to be the best summer ever.” I was preparing to go on a camping trip to a destination with no cell-phone service, so naturally I didn’t say this aloud to any of my friends. I have seen enough horror movies to know that can only end badly.

It’s not often that I think like this, but something is in the air this year and I can feel it in my bones. So bring it on—the sun, the waves, the beach, the drinks by the pool, and the decadent meals that last too long into the night. I am ready for it all! Here are some seasonal essentials to help you dress the part and make the most of what is destined to be the best summer ever. (I know, I am also a little confused at my newfound optimism. Just roll with it; I am.)

1/21

A Chambray Shirt. I don’t know when or how it happened, but suddenly a chambray shirt became a summer essential. It is now totally fine to wear it with jeans as well as with any other kind of pant. This J.Crew chambray shirt is the best one I’ve found; it looks great with the sleeves rolled up for the beach, tucked in your khakis for a casual day look, and with a suit (my personal favorite).

2/22

Swim Shorts. If you don’t own a bright-colored swimsuit this summer, you might as well not even go to the beach. I recently fell in love with this swimsuit line called Onia. You can get the trunks in three lengths, depending on how comfortable you are with your legs or how appropriate they are for whatever beach you are on. What fits in on the beaches of Far Rockaway may not be just right for, say, Fire Island. Bonus: if you have a son, they come in matching kids’ sizes. I am getting one for my godson and stealing him away for the weekend, to give Mom and Dad a “break” while I complete my evil plan to become the world’s coolest uncle.

Boat Shoes. I have been trumpeting boat shoes since I started writing Carl’s Crush, and I think they are going to be huge again this summer. So huge, in fact, that I think you need to find a pair that has something a little special so you can stand out from the crowd. These multicolored deck shoes from Lanvin will be suitably unique, plus they’re Lanvin.

Kim and Kanye West spice up their romance with a cosy night out… as it’s revealed he’s been introduced to the Kardashians

Kanye West continues to wine and dine his reality star girlfriend, this time taking Kim Kardashian to one of New York City’s hottest restaurants.

The lovebirds caused a major stir last night as they emerged from Spice Market, a trendy Asian Fusion spot in the city’s Meatpacking District.

The couple, which is now known as Kimye to their fans, was spotted arriving at the restaurant and later leaving with several members of the Kardashian clan.

Kim donned the same black leather trousers she was pictured wearing earlier in the day when she joined Kanye on an ice cream run.

But for her evening look, she paired the trousers with a fringed white blouse and black jacket.

Hours earlier, Kardashian and her new beau ate up every second of attention they received while strolling around New York.

The love birds laughed and smiled as a crush of cameras and fans trailed them around the city.

And no wonder they’re smiling as it was revealed Kim introduced her new man to her family on the very same day, a sure sign things are getting serious.

And according to TMZ, the Kardashian crew ‘absolutely loved him’.

Drew Barrymore‘s not ready to flaunt her baby bump just yet!

On Thursday, the pregnant star, 37, headed to a Gotye concert in L.A., where she rocked Paige Denim’s “Somersault” stretch jeans.

PHOTOS: A-list pregnancies

She accessorized the printed pants with a bright orange necklace, Converse sneakers–and concealed her growing bump in an oversized gray sweater.

Though the star has yet to confirm her pregnancy, a source tells Us Weekly that the Big Miracle star and her art consultant fiance, Will Koppelman, are ecstatic about welcoming their first child together.
