Tuesday Ain’t Over ‘Til The Shoe Fairy Sings

March 17th, 2010 1 Comment

I know what you’re thinking, “Where are the fun summer colors?!”

My thoughts exactly.

Unless you’re an amateur buying only shoes with red soles, the major colors haven’t really hit yet.

Plus, remember, these styles were designed last year during the height of the recession when VERSATILITY was crutial.

Whatever the case may be, these styles are killer and will go with everything you have for spring and summer (this year and next).

T-Straps For Spring

March 9th, 2010 No Comments

This year, the designer labels seem to agree the t-strap “flip flop” is their casual trend of choice.  It’s like the gladiator sandal from the past two seasons that decided to shed its straps.

The look is either a single, feminine strap or adorned with chucky stones.    You could also opt for something a little more durable and simple.

Honestly, I don’t think any of these are MUST HAVES, but trust me when I tell you, you will find something you love at every price point in this fun flat.

Shoe Browsing

April 7th, 2008 No Comments

Loving these Chanel flats, but alas, neither Bergdorf or Barneys has my size.

Other shoes I loved while browsing yesterday:

Brands I found boring:

  • Christian Louboutin
  • YSL

I Would NOT Be Caught Dead Wearing…

THE SHOE EVERYONE IS BUYING THAT I WOULDN’T BE CAUGHT DEAD IN!

CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN KNOT MULE, $850, Rainbow of Colors Available

First of all, I really don’t like having shoes everyone else has.  Secondly, these are boring.  Third, I can think of a hell of a lot better way to spend $850.  Finally you can get the Steve Madden knockoff for $90.

‘nough said.

Shoes I’m Loving and Not Buying

February 14th, 2008 No Comments

SHOES I AM LOVING (AND NOT BUYING) RIGHT NOW

So if you haven’t caught on, I’m obsessed with shoes.  No I can’t afford them, but I usually buy a pair or two (hehe) per season.  I will admit though, unless I am just dying to have them (like these red YSL Tribute pumpsthat I preordered!! because there were only going to be ONE pair of 40’s in the US.  Of course they were such a  hit, they are now in their third season of production, sigh.) I usually wait for some kind of sale, that way I can really enjoy them.  But! it’s important to have hot shoes for Spring/Summer. So here are my picks that can be found online(crucial destinction):

  1. Guiseppe Zanotti Patent Trim Spectator Pumps
  2. Dolce and Gabanna Mary Janes
  3. Jimmy Choo Lois Snake/Patent Pumps
  4. Moschino Cheap and Chic Platform Sandal
  5. Christian Louboutin Mad Mary
  6. Oscar de La Renta Scoll Peep Toe Sling Back
  7. Dior Platform Mary Janes

Designers I left out: Chanel, Roger Vivier, and Marc Jacobs.

The shoes above are Jonathan Kelsey, and let me set the record straight, I want them in SILVER, but they don’t sell the silver online.  They are fabulous in person!! for a whopping $725.

Lust away!

Wardrobe Questions Answered

February 10th, 2008 No Comments

“1.  Uggs, in or out?  I tend to go with out, but so many wear them!
2.  What shoes are considered “in” for this season?
3.  Clothing suggestions for the 5’2?” — Reader Morgan

First and foremost, Uggsare ALWAYS in! The people in Southern California (where it isn’t even close to chilly) have worn Uggs all year round since they were kids.  While they might not be the cutest, and I don’t think you should wear them daily, Uggs make sense so wear them, love them!!!

Shoes for Spring:

  1. High heels or flats (no real in between)
  2. Snakeskin
  3. Patent
  4. Metallic
  5. Wedges
  6. Hidden Platforms

In all honestly, nothing has really changed in terms of shoes.  My goal is always to find a pair with attitude and not just settle for a plain shoe with a pretty label.  Above are Christian Louboutin “Jaws” pumps with ivory python and black patent trim. They are great shoes that will go with everything, but also have a little attitude due to the python texture.

And if you’re 5’2” I don’t see why you should dress any differently than if you were 5’7”.  Heft is 5’2” and she ALWAYS wears heels, but I think she would look just as cute (and more comfortable) in flats.

Have I told you where to find my favorite ballet flats: www.londonsole.com Very unique and cheap!  Please stay away from the Tory Burch flats.  To me, the Tory Burch brand (in terms of shoes and bags) is becoming like Coach.  Not particularly cute, and way overdone.
