Friday Fantasy #18 - Preppy


Why: You've been invited to an early 90's party where they require you to wear something preppy, yet you don't want to seem too overdone.  Take a little bit of what is current now - neon, and built on it with some classic pieces.  Cable knit sweaters are always a fall/winter staple and can be cheered up with a crisp white button down shirt.  Nothing says preppy like a starched collar.  These L.K. Bennett patent leather wedges are great for giving a little height to your look.  A less expensive, but very similar version, that I have found in Nordstrom Rack lately is the Franco Sarto 'Year' wedge.  It looks almost identical to the ones above and are priced at just $13-$36.  They also run pretty true to size.  If you would like to hunt them down you can always contact a Nordstrom Rack and ask to have one of their lovely concierges track them down for you.  Happy Friday!
