I can see you
Your brown skin shinin in the sun
You got your hair combed back and your sunglasses on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the BEADS of summer have gone...
(You know you remember that song...)
It's officially summertime for me, and right here is my pick for the #1 summer trend. If you all can remember back to Stella McCartney's Spring 08 runway show (or my review), you may remember the colorful beaded purses and shoes (which actually fell apart during the show)
Well, the faults have been fixed, and the beaded wooden platforms, one of my fave new shoe styles, and the gorgeous beaded clutches, have finally debuted in high end stores (and on celebs)
Nicole Richie with the McCartney clutch

Dries Van Noten also showed beaded footwear, as well as chunky beaded necklaces.
Dries Van Noten Beaded Sandals, $945
Those beads have been on my brain ever since, and I recently indulged in a colorful, Native American style, vintage, beaded belt, and have decided to hunt down some beaded beauties for all y'all faithful readers.
Shop Intuition beaded clutch, $28
Jeffrey Campbell Beaded Thong, $88

I LOVE these Sigerson Morrison wedges, though they're really pricey. They remind me of those fab balenciaga heels
