hedi gores, co-founder of pressed juicery & the chalkboard. hedi gores’ closet is essentially a rodeo drive boutique filled w/racks of clothes & perfectly-placed shoes where the heels are expertly displayed in fresh form. gores’s digs are an eclectic mix of new-meets-old, complete w/rich velvet fabrics, quirky taxidermy & modern detailing — including a custom graffiti wall in her son’s bedroom. from her selection of printed balenciaga skirts to her collection of classic hermès bags, gores has a style that borders cool & classic. & even though her closet is a sea of colourful, whimsical heels, gores always goes back to the simple black pump. “i love the opportunity to be grand, but it’s the classics that are key to who i am.”

the age of understatement. haute couture spring/summer 2012 lacks sense of archaic wearable art — something we’ve come to expect from an haute couture collection. instead, the unconventional is pushed aside to make way for the understated: gowns that epitomise classic elegance (think old hollywood). allow this editorial from l’officiel ukraine to demonstrate.

the flirty yet faithful 50s. the concept of taking the 1950s-bombshell look out of europe & planting it in the streets of brooklyn is given a little bit of rawness by way of terry richardson’s hand. while sexily styled by brana wolf & w/a dedication to the era that borders on costume, we’re reminded that mixing up vintage & modern is the best way to make any 50s look a street-ready one.

"i’ve spent $40,000 on shoes & i have no place to live? i will literally be the old woman who lived in her shoes!" carrie bradshaw, sex & the city

after lining her 125 pairs of shoes, four rows deep around her bedroom, brooke cundiff, divisional merchandising manager at gilt groupe, knew she needed a better system. one day she noticed a curio cabinet at a furniture store; “i had an epiphany on the spot. i could visualize my shoes in it.” after a quick revival (the paint was peeling & the piece needed more shelves) the velvet-lined cabinet now neatly corrals the 40 pairs cundiff wears most; “this cabinet forces me to play favorites. [it] fits my space constraints & my lifestyle.”
