Ooh, my favorite!

Just as I was talking up my black and yellow dress fetish, I happened upon a similar situation for shoes. This time just swap the yellow for gold and there seems to be quite a trend emerging. Also, don’t forget all the gold we saw at the Met Gala last week.  Oh, and while we’re trending about the Met any of these numbers would complement a dark currant lip color so nicely.

I’m excited about this one!

 Gucci Cracked-leather and suede sandals $850 / Metallic leather and suede sandals$850

I love the simple elegance of these. Very 40’s esque. (Check out those shiny heels!)

Jimmy Choo Bunting metallic leather sandals $895

I haven’t had a pair of Jimmy Choo’s on my mind in a long time. Glad to have him back. I love the idea of this cagey look with an LBD and pearls.

Yves Saint Laurent Cardinal metallic-paneled suede pumps $1695

I never would have guessed that I’d have liked these YSL’s but there’s something so bold and timeless about them. I’m thinking paired with skinny cigarette pants and some gold armswag.


Marni Leather-trimmed watersnake sandals $1045 / Marc by Marc Jacobs Suede and leather sandals $350

I’ll always be a sucker for a T-strap pump or a chunky platform sandal.


Miu Miu Glitter-finish suede wedge sandals $750

These are great fun and despite the glitter the cork wedge makes these guys much more casual.


Christian Loubotin Corpus 100 leather and chain pumps $1495

I’m beyond over Louboutin’s but these shoes seem to be both classic and forward at the same time.

There’s plenty more to check out too, lots of sandals and flats that would work for summer. Hope you find something good!

This shoe has been haunting my thoughts for weeks. Can you just see the endless possibilities? Classic, elegant, and still so eye-catching. THE perfect summer wedge. That’s it. There is no more.

Of course while searching for some new Wellies in preparation for a very wet Seattle winter ahead, I happened upon these. A bit excessive? Yes. Completely chic and oh so fetish-worthy? Yes!

I awoke on Tuesday morning to find this in my Inbox. These mails from Barney’s are quite dangerous. Beautiful silhouette, gorgeous color; my freshly pedi’d toes, with an Autumn orange polish, would look so at home in these. Sigh.

I realize that I often post beautiful shoes and gush endlessly about how I lust and even dream about them, so what I’m about to say may not carry any weight, but I’ll try anyway: these ARE the MOST GORGEOUS shoes I have EVER seen. And truly and honestly, I have never wanted a pair of shoes more. So delicate with the intricate cut-outs but also kind of rugged with the platform and bootie shape. Do you notice that under the cut-outs it’s calf hair? Very intersting!

Check them out at Net-a-Porter ($2,375) and see how they look paired with a white dress!

I really don’t think I have the vocabulary necessary to convey how truly elegant I find these gowns to be; simply stunning is all I can say. I really can’t pick a fave, but if I must, I’d have to go for the little gray number above. I’ve never seen anything quite like it. But, on the other hand, those daring slits that show off those wonderful cut-out boots are pretty spectacular too! I die.

Oh yes, and how about a round of applause for the lovely Monika Jagaciak who does an amazing job showcasing these lovely creations. Bravo!

To be completely honest, I never really followed this line but ever since I caught a glimpse of the editorials from spring of this year, I’ve been obsessed. Check out Fashion Gone Rogue for more dresses and different shots. (Tip: you must check out the back cut-out in the gradient dress above!)

Resort eye candy

Filed under: Fashion, Shoes, Uncategorized

In order to offset the over the top nerd confession in my last post I figure I should try to redeem myself with some eye candy from some of the resort trends that are online now at Neiman Marcus. I know, I know…you think I’m crazy. After all, autumn is only just arriving, and we’re still getting used to the shorter days and foggy nights,  but why not take a little peek ahead and see what’s in store?

Espadrilles are still in, but these lovelies from YSL are a great twist instead of the typical wedge. I typically gravitate to the chunkier heels like this, so I could definitely see this at home on my shoe wall. Ooh that killer yellow, and the rosy platform. Swoon! See them here.

Glitter is also going to be showing up in resort collections as well. I don’t find Jimmy Choo’s shoes to be particularly comfortable but I just adore these peep toes. I love these because it just screams classy but has just the right amount of flash to make them stand out. Paired with an LBD and pearls and I’d be set. Oh, but there’s more! I’m not typically a bag kind of gal, but the matching shoulder bag is gorgeous! Both at Neiman’s too.

And what would any shoe list be without a pair of Louboutin’s. Neiman’s is calling this trend category Parisian Chic, and all I can say is je veux ces chaussures maintenant!

I admit, I worry that perhaps there may be some over-saturation with this brand, but every time that thought creeps into my head I see a new pair that gets my heart racing all over again, so really what do I know? Well, I at least had the sense to recognize that these are FIERCE with that 6-inch heel and leather and mesh backstay. And I would also venture to say that they’re sweet with that peep toe and cut-out with bow. Don’t look at the price, you’ll just cry, but if you’re up to it check ’em out.

I need to find a way to make these mine. A clever twist on a classic clog, I’m totally diggin’ the taupe with the burnt orange heel strap, which ultimately make this the perfect shoe for the transition from summer to fall. Oh I hope they become available soon. No longer available at Zappos, but black is available for pre-order at Neiman’s. I sense a shoe challenge and I’m game!

My annual holiday with mom is over just as it began, and I still can’t believe how quickly it came and went. It’s a week OFF of exercise, and a week ON for shopping, eating, movies, and relaxing. We got into lots of trouble in and around town, and even hopped over to see Toy Story 3 at the Metreon. It was as wonderful as I expected; so sweet and funny.

Barney’s was having one of their big shoe sales, so mom treated me to these adorable Chloe platform wedge sneakers! I love, love, love them. I’ve already worn them a few times since last week and they’re amazing. We poked around Neiman’s and Saks too, but didn’t really find much. (There seemed to be a lot more online for the Neiman Marcus sale.)

It was the perfect holiday with my best friend. (I’m already counting down the days for the next one.) I’m still sifting through our pics from our adventures, so I’ll have plenty to share over the next week. Glad to be back!

TOMS: One for One

Hooray! TOMS has added espadrille wedges to their shoe collection, and they’ve got a great little collection of colors and stripes. If you’re not familiar with TOMS, all of the styles (wedges or flats) are super cute, but perhaps the sexiest thing about them is that a child in need receives a pair of shoes when you decide to get a pair for yourself. Who’d have thought shoe shopping could get any better? A cute pair of shoes and also helping provide a child with a new pair (sometimes even their first, ever) always makes me giddy.

If wedges aren’t your thing check out the other styles. (I’ve been eyeing the Glitters and the Wrap Boots for a while now.)
