A few months ago I was reading one of my favorite fashion blogs, Garance Dore, when I stumbled across a post discussing her hatred for the new emerging trend…clogs.  I was immediately in agreement with her, I mean ewwwwwww….clogs to me are for nurses, gardening, and (no offense) but unfashionable older women.  Like a good fashion blogger I left Garance a comment agreeing with her post & went on with my day.

Fall RTW 2010 Fashion Week Hit.  And my mind was blown away.  I was sooooo very wrong.  Hahaha in the paraphrased words of my friend & former boss, Paul Pelssers, ‘don’t say you’ll never wear a trend, before you know it you’ll have that item in every color!’  Truer words have never been spoken, especially for a diehard fashion obsessed girl like me.  Jumpers, check!  Open toe booties, check!  And now…CLOGS, check!

When my younger sister, Chelsey, emailed me from college inquiring about purchasing a pair of the latest shoe craze, the platform heeled clog, I shrieked with fashion filled joy, “get ‘em, get ‘em”….and that she did!

Chelsey looking so effortlessly cool in her Jeffrey Campbell Charlie clogs….

Chelsey thinking to herself…‘I love my new clogs!’  I mean how could she not!?  They can be worn casually like here with jeans & a white tee, to dinner with a sundress, or even to work with trousers, a button down & a fitted blazer (i.e. Alexa Chung on the cover of British Vogue).

I had to throw in this adorable photo of our Boykin Spaniel, Atom…he kept trying to be in the photo shoot :)

Jeffrey Campbell Charlie Clogs…

And just like me Garance Dore changed her mind!
