While shopping for sandals for my mother in Palm Beach recently the salesgirl repeatedly made the point that your shoes should not match your bag. Huh? Doesn’t have to match I agree, but shouldn’t? I hate fashion dictums especially as I was standing there carrying a camel Birkin with matching K. Jacques sandals. I don’t set out to match my shoes and bag but like Alessandra above, I think it can look incredibly chic when they do.
