With sale season swinging into high gear you can find incredible deals on Fall 2011 merchandise everywhere. The reason these bad boys, which are currently 50% off on ShopBop, will never be in my closet is because of the height. It doesn’t mean I can’t admire them. Even without a platform they’re still 5″ tall. I whine about my feet hurting in anything higher than 2″. I’m in the process of building a killer designer sneaker collection which according to Tommy Ton, is the surprise hit trend of 2011. The great thing about being a street-style photographer is that I can live vicariously through my subjects. Even though I’m nearly always in flats, I love to photograph women in heels.

I have a soft spot for anything tribal so it pains me that these sandals are literally too, well, painful for me to ever rock. The Proenza Schouler Fall 2011 collection was honestly the first time I’ve ever lusted after any Native American-inspired pieces by Western designers. Often times when designers are inspired by the whole “Cowboys and Indians” era the clothes end up kitschy and lame with a borderline racist vibe. Jack and Lazaro were able to transform their source of inspiration – Navajo blankets – into something completely new while honoring the source of their creativity with the utmost respect.
