Every job has it’s perks. Working for an accessories company, that has meant just about as many timepieces, sunglasses and handbags as I (or my family) could ever need. Being that I love shoes I was more than pleased when Fossil decided to foray into footwear last year; yet I only own one singular pair. I decided this would change, however, after attending a recent photo shoot. This season Fossil decided to highlight their fall apparel and footwear by tapping into the social media community. Using fashion bloggers as stylists, they put together a digital lookbook of outfits available on their site. I got a behind-the-scenes look as Nadia of Frou Frouu, Taylor of Sterling Style, Aimee of Song of Style and Connie Wang of Refinery 29 went to work putting their personal spins on the Fossil wares…and helped change my tune.
The recent workwear/menswear trend is a natural fit with Fossil’s modern vintage perspective, showcased particularly in the heeled oxfords, ankle desert boots and lace-up work boots that the ladies chose from. Amongst the guest stylists the Lucille tan desert bootie was the unanimous favorite (I agreed and will likely add them to the closet shortly) and I’m particularly fond of them styled with thick textured grey tights or socks and slouchy pants. I’m feeling dark legs with a lighter hued shoe these days. Showcased below are also lovely pairs from the crew; behind the scenes does not warrant unattractive footwear.
Special thanks to Nadia from Frou Frouu who supplied the footwear photographs of the cast and crew (they’re bloggers, of course they all brought their cameras, yet mine was out of batteries). Head over to the Fossil Lookbook for the full shoot and swing by their blogs as well. A talented lot of stylish ladies to be sure.
