What Would Project Runway Shoe? (#WWPRS) Trashion, not Fashion, Classy or Assy?

Oh my Lord of the rings!  Manopause has hit Ms. Michael Kors in this week’s Project Runway episode.  Fortunately, the winning look and shoes to match have no manopause taint. ;)  For those that haven’t seen these posts of mine before, ‘What Would Project Runway Shoe?” (#WWPRS) is where I pair a shoe or two to go with the winning look of the week.  SPOILER ALERT!  Stop reading if you want to wait and watch the episode from this week and spill the beans.

Little Oliver Green’s modern chic dress made from pet shop finds of dog bedding and hamster filling took top prize this week.  The top was really my favorite piece of this outfit.  The tailoring and silhouette really made it so very sleek.  Given how they make our office subzero in the hot summer months, I think this would be a great office look.

Oliver’s choice of shoes was very good, I must say.  The ‘Gracious’  from Nine West is a fashion forward platform bootie that gives the look an updated modern edge.  My only qualm is with the color, Toasted Taupe, he chose.  I get that he was going for the neutral tones and the shade works with the model’s skin coloring but I would have liked to have seen a little more color interest and gone with the Grey Moon instead.  It’s still in the same color family but doesn’t wash out the overall look.

My more sophisticated and classic inclination for office wear makes me prefer Sam Edelman’s ‘Niland’ platform peep toe pump in the Putty color.  It has a classic, clean silhouette that plays to a timeless feel, perfect for emanating fantastic work wear.  The twist on this fab platform heel is the little keyhole like peeptoe.  Mr. Edelman brought us this updated peeptoe last year and the facelift on the sexy 1950’s icon is here for another few seaons.  Again, I chose the Putty for the same reason I think that Oliver should have gone with the ‘Gracious’ in the Dark Moon - slight visual interest without throwing too much in the mix.  And I’m not gonna lie, the faux croc like print was TOO perfect for the theme of this challenge to pass up here. ;)

Next week’s episode promises “high” fashion and a little Kim Kardashian guest judging.  Come back for next week’s “What Would Project Runway Shoe?” (#WWPRS)  *hearts*
