This week’s style file is no wuss. She’s decorated with tats, and sports a dark bob which give a toughness to any look she wears. The actual outfits she pulls together tend to lean on the girly side, creating a nice balance with the permanent edgyness. She loves tights and cute flared mini’s. She peppers in ditzy prints, lace, and feminine detailing. And then there are the shoes, she has a collection of stunners – your ordinary black ankle boot wedges, but with badass elements. Overall, she has a great mix of tough and sweet. Check out her week in style:

I can’t help but notice all of the great new ankle boots we have up on the Free People site. I’m especially loving a bunch of the heeled/wedged styles. I think that my wardrobe could benefit from one or two pairs of the following. What do you all think? Any favorites?
I always get inspired when I go to New York and even more inspired by the Young designers who emerge from there. So, when I heard we were carrying Madison Harding, a street provocative footwear line, my inspirational bank started to fill up.
Free-spirited and all-around chic, Madison Harding thrives on the creative style that flawlessly blends modern looks with a vintage edge. These shoe designers draw inspiration for their retro, yet street provocative footwear line from the beloved Lower East Side and New York’s staggering music and art scene
Hilary Rosenman and Barri Budin bonded over a shared love of fashion and contemporary design during their college years. After school, they moved to the East Village in New York City to start their careers in the fashion industry. Hilary served as a fashion market editor and Barri assisted at a contemporary fashion showroom. Soon after, they discovered a lack of accessible, high-fashion shoes designed for the downtown city girl, so the girls set out to follow their true passion, footwear.
The name Madison Harding represents the designer’s roots, Hilary grew up on Madison Ave in New York City and Barri on Harding Drive in New Jersey.
Their shoes fit in perfectly with a New York City girl’s essential wardrobe! what inspires you about New York?
