Marni High Heeled Mary Jane ShoesWe’re not sure what the fashion rules are for wearing Mary Jane heels with culottes. But rules are made to be broken. So if there’s a rule that says you can’t wear Mary Jane style heels with culottes, we recommend you break it and wear these gorgeous Mary Jane heels from Marni with your Mary Katrantzou burgundy and citrine houndstooth print silk blouse and your TIBI maroon culottes.

Don’t worry about wearing too much burdundy. The black and citrine yellow in the blouse and the black in the shoes offset the burgundy. Besides the shades of burgundy are varied enough to not look like too much.

Hello, I'm Adela Lewis aka singer songwriter Adelamonica. I am the founder, creative director, editor in chief and main writer for avenuesixty.com. First let me say, I myself cringe at some of the things I've written on this blog. It is completely embarrassing to realize how miserably I've been failing to hide the fact that I lack sophistication, and often times lack enlightenment. I wish I had never written half the things I've written on here, but I did write them. To be clear, I am just a regular person who enjoys writing. I refer to myself as "editor in chief" and "creative director" because, owning the blog as I do and being the one who creates and edits the content (except for content submitted by guest contributors), I feel that I have the freedom to do so. But I am not an editor and there is currently no staff that I oversee. Via this blog, I am contributing my personal thoughts and ideas and beliefs to everyday topics of discussion--at times topics on which I am not particularly well informed, but about which I might still have a point of view--much like most other people on the planet . The things I write should be regarded in the light of diary/journal style and essay style writings, reviews and reports exploring the topics I attempt to discuss. Please recognize that I have no academic or other professional qualifications and I do not represent my points of view as carrying any weight or having anything of significant value to contribute to serious discussions held by qualified persons on any topic featured. I apologize in advance for any errors major or minor that I make in my writing (I have made some embarrassing errors), anything I write that can be perceived as an offense or that is otherwise insensitive or needlessly critical and disparaging of any person.
