There is only a Y between me & my Saint Laurent!

Ever since Y(ves) has been dropped from the old fashioned iconic label YSL by the new creative director and visionary Hedi Slimane, the collections have epitomized a rock star’s wardrobe.  It’s young, hip and casual at the same time.  Skinny and Scalpel Sharp has always been The Slimane way.  It’s just a matter of time before France — and the rest of the fashion world for that matter — makes the connection between the new SL luxed-up basics and the old YSL classicism and allure.

I could not resist adding these bright cranberry red slip-on Paris Pointed Toe Ankle Booties from SL Fall 2013 collection to my archives, especially for the holidays.

I found mine at Barney’s
