California Style Romanesque

By Grace Bernal
It’s looking a little green, thanks to the bit of rain we’ve had. The small villages that surround us in San Bernardino County are coming to life with fashionable people. There is so much style of dress. I have noticed, in particular, gold plated accessories and bootie shoes lately. The booties and gold plated jewelry have a Romanesque twist to them. Among my favorite pieces thus far are the open toe booties, which are perfect for showing off colorful pedicures. Booties come in different designs and heel sizes, making some more comfortable than others. Some booties come with a perforated decor and fit like a gloved sleeve wonderfully onto the foot. I really cant get enough of them and I hope they stick around permanently. Everywhere you look the cities are full of Roman-like style. There is something going on, from dress down clothes to dress up. The looks are wonderful and uplifting, too. Have fun fitting into the a Roman-gloved open toe bootie this season.
“I like things that are kind of eclectic, when one thing doesn’t go with another. That’s why I love Rome. The town itself is that way. It’s where Fascist architecture meets classic Renaissance, where the ancient bangs up against the contemporary. It has a touch of everything. That’s my style, and that’s what my work is about.”
