HQ Street Style: Denise

We spotted Denise immediately due to her insanely fabulous Azzedine Alaïa shoes. Not surprisingly, she’s one of our buyers in Salon Shoes (read more on Denise in our House Call feature).

Denise is artfully rocking this season’s moto jacket-over-a-dress look as well as successfully working graphic color blocking and architectural footwear into the mix—all without looking costumey or overly done.

Denise said she buys what inspires her and has learned to take more fashion risks as she’s grown older. “I’m always looking for pieces that I don’t have within the fashion spectrum,” she says. “Shoes are the best platform for building your outfit from the ground up (no pun intended)—I have definitely embraced the ‘everywhere is a runway’ philosophy with my footwear!”

Denise, we couldn’t agree more.
