Why can I not find this designer?!


So I went shopping with my sister today and found these AMAZING David Richard Ltd. suede boat shoes at DSW.I have never heard of the designer and cannot find him ANYWHERE on the internet. I got the shoes for $12.83 a piece (including tax) so I do not really care how legit he is. I have been wanting to get the suede Sperry's for a while now, but could not bring myself to spend about $90 on shoes I knew I wouldn't wear that often.

I'll put my own pictures of the shoes up when I have a little bit more time...I found these pictures on eBay and figured they would do for now.What do you think though? pretty sweet huh?

Here are the outfits I envision these shoes with... (A little creative license has been taken because of how the polyvore website works. I am 99.99987% sure the site was originally, if not still, intended for women.It's a pretty sweet concept though so I am going to pave the way for men! haha.)

I call this look "The First Mate" because I built it around the peacoat-a coat  which was originally meant for sailors. I would wear this out to dinner with friends or to an event that took place at night that wasn't formal. Maybe a play, coffee, movie--you get the gist.

I call this look "The Young Professor". As I mentioned in my inaugural  post, I would love to someday be a professor. I feel this look, like the professors it is model after,  has a comfortable sophistication about itself, and that is why I love it! I'd most likely wear this out to lunch or to a campus-related meeting or something.

I'm not going to lie, the whole polyvore thing is pretty sick, and I think I may have developed a new addiction. Shout out to MollDoll for inadvertently introducing me to this website/tool.

Happy Blogging,

  1. Hahaha isn't Polyvore addicting! Its sick! I love the shoes I feel like they'll go with anything and they're not like fratty boat shoes!

  2. dude, you hit the nail on the head! i have traditional boat shoes, but they sometimes get in the way of the look i am going for...i, like you, believe these are a good addition to my closet.
