What a Stud

I haven’t posted this week…instead I spent a few days with my mom who was having a knee replaced in a New Jersey hospital. While she was in surgery, I found myself with quite a bit of down time to read Web MD magazines, eat packaged corn muffins, and notice nurse attire as they hurried by attending to many demanding patients.

There was one pair of feet that scurried by close enough for me to see the shoes peeking out from under her scrubs. A standard shaped clog with a trendy twist.

The vibrant color orange was the perfect complement to her navy blue cotton 2-piece “pantsuit.” But it was the studs embellishing the strap that really caught my attention. Fashion and function was meeting in the middle of an Ocean County cafeteria.

Studs can be seen shining on every classification of clothing this fall season. From leather jackets to ballet flats, these often metal, sometimes colored plastic, protrusions are popular accent pieces to add to your wardrobe.
