Stripper Shoes and Four-Leaf Clovers
Flip to page 94 of the new Vogue. On it will be a picture of Eleanor Ylvisaker (some socialite chick) wearing a four-leaf clover print dress by Carolina Herrera. Take very good note of it. The fun print and short hemline exude youthful exuberance and pure summery joy. But however youthful it may be, teenagers and ingenues alike might make the exclusive mistake of pairing the dress with flip-flops or flats. No, never. As Eleanor Ylvisaker demonstrates, the cute factor needs to be toned down and gussied up with a pair of bitchin' shoes: preferrably platform heels or peep-toe pumps. (Appreciate my affinity for awesome alliterations?) This girl knows what looks good and flaunts it to the extreme. Three cheers for Eleanor, the random socialite chick!
