Name: Ali Jersey Nebel
Store: Fluevog New York
Shoe name: The Soprano Carey
Why is this your Spring 2014 pick?: I’ve been a super fan of anything Operetta/Soprano since I first started working for Fluevog. The Carey combines everything I cherish but with a completely different attitude than past designs. I adore the classic 60s Mod style and the color goes PERFECTLY with my favorite NARS lip pencil (color: Luxembourg). If a shoe color matches a lipstick I own, that shoe is on my feet!
What are your favo(u)rite spring colo(u)rs and patterns?: I’m really into “power clashing” this spring. I’ll mix strips and polka dots with floral prints or tartans. I also sport a lot of vintage kimonos with jeans, so the Carey gives my eclectic style a pop of fun color. Huge “ugly” or “trashy” patterns are fun to play with if you’re wearing a solid color shoe.
Describe your style in three words: Eclectic, Brat Pack, Recovering Preppy.
Fill in the blanks: I know I am ______ in my ______ . I feel ______ .
