design graduates' show, university of minnesota
Without any forewarning, I picked out this chic woman from the crowd waiting to get into the show -- she's the director of the U's design program. She made her blouse, using nifty buttons she got in Portland. But I think it's the ankle boots that kick the look up a notch. She says this show of the senior's work is more important to them than graduation.
Go all the way to the bottom -- that's right -- John Fluevog boots! She got them online. Side laced, with the signature flared heel that makes them quite pragmatic. It's "just" a Calvin Klein coat in a beautiful tweed.
