An Open Letter to Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian Kanye West

Dear Kim,

We’re so happy you’ve found something special with Kanye West. Divorcing in the spotlight was seemingly an absolutely terrible experience, and if you weren’t happy last time, well, you definitely deserve to be happy now.

But, love doesn’t have to be blind — especially to questionable shoes. We think it’s fine you’re taking style advice from Kanye — he’s generally a well-dressed dude. And we kind of loved those boots of his you wore last week. We were even fine with the “K W” earrings — subtle but sweet.

However, this latest look is a bit harder to get on board with. Your Kanye West x Giuseppe Zanotti heels — which reportedly sell for about $5,800 — are just not that cute. At least in photographs. And since you usually dress quite beautifully, it’s bringing your overall look down a notch. A pair of killer sandals — or even some summery wedges — would’ve been a great alternative to these calfskin and pearl .. things.

We’re all for supporting our men — believe us, we’ve sat through many a fantasy football draft — but sometimes, it’s OK to simply tell them, “No.” So maybe next time Kanye suggests those shoes, reach for the boots instead — or the Air Yeezy IIs.

Love, StyleWatch

lol Kanye can do no wrong in Kim’s eyes. They’re very cute together but i think she dressed betetr before she took his styling advice.

He has killed her style. Im glad she’s happy, but he needs to stay out of her closet. The girl’s style was flawless before!

Do you guys remember when items were stolen from her luggage a while back, well I noticed no one stole these shoes. Too bad! I hate Kanye’s influence on Kim’s style but I’m not upset with Kanye as I am with her. she’s allowing it. The only thing she di recently was put her extensions back in and she looks gorgeous. I just think he doesn’t want her to look better than Beyonce(his true love).

My 50 cents on

Makes me laugh at how kanye thinks he knows fashion. Who told him that??? Wearing all black clothes, crunched up jeans, 80’s style high top sneakers…Ridiculous! Anyone with fame gets into the fashion game. I appreciate real fashion, you know, the ones that actually have that passion and not just another money making gig!
