Tuesday, April 3, 2012 A Week With: Jacqueline, The Girl Who Makes All Your Shoe Dreams Come True

Meet Jacqueline, our shoe buyer extraordinaire. Inspired by googling street style, and all the pretty, edgy, androgynous, badass things in the world, her style never ceases to surprise and amaze us— whether she’s in ripped denim or a giant faux fur. And even though she lovingly refers to her shoes as her children, she’s almost as passionate about Harry Potter.
Seriously, she’s camped out for all seven book releases and went to every midnight opening…in costume. We spent a week with her and her adorable muppet…err…dog, Gobi, to see how she manages to always look so awesome when she walks into the office every morning.
“Mondays suck, so I always try to wear the craziest outfit I can come up with. I have a lot of fun color blocking with bright hues—go bold or go home.”
“I’m lucky enough to work in a super creative office where you can get away with anything, so this is my working girl look. High-waist shorts and blazer make the crop top a little more office friendly.”
Topshop leopard sequin sweater, Motel Jordan Leopard Jeans, Giusseppe Zanotti leopard platforms.
“This is my unapologetic ode to leopard. The combination of a leopard sequin sweater, leopard skinnies and platforms might be a little much for some girls, but I think it works since everything is pretty neutral. Leopard is as much of a neutral to me as black.”
Viktor & Rolf cropped jacket, One Teaspoon Blouse, Laced Tail Skirt, Chloe Sevigny x Opening Ceremony platforms.
“I’ve always been drawn to cutesy, girly pieces but I try to wear them in an unexpected way. I wear a ton of blouses and lace, almost always with some insanely tall platforms. Did I mention I have a major shoe addiction?”
“So this is my go-to Casual Friday look for when I woke up late and really don’t give a shit about what I throw on. Luckily a pair of amazing platforms makes anything look a million times better.”
