In anticipation…winter boots

In an attempt at accepting the impending Seattle winter of rain, rain, and rain, with the possiblility of a snowflake or two, I realized it’s probably time I had a proper pair of winter boots. I’ve got rain boots down but nothing that resembles a real boot. I know right, a Seattle girl without boots? There are a few of us, but until I saw these guys I was willing to make due without. Rugged and useful but still oh so stylish and feminine (with faux fur). I likey!

Givenchy Wingtip Platform Booties

In the sea of new fall shoes at Barney’s these stood out in every way. Wingtips look good with a platform, no? Ok so maybe at first glance they’re not your thing, but trust me when I say they are gorgeous. The perforated details and layered trim are perfect, but the best feature is the color. The light and delicate patent grey make it more lovely than vamp, which could have easily been the case with this silhouette (notice the square “blade” shape of the heel). With pants or a dress they’d be quite versatile and wearable for years to come.

Miu Miu Glitter Platform Pump

Miu Miu Glitter Platform Pump

I snuck away to Neiman’s yesterday to check out their sale. After my high hopes were dashed at the shoe racks I turned to see the new arrivals from Miu Miu. My feet needed some sort of gratification so I nonchalantly slipped this bad boy on. I was sorely mistaken when I figured they were just a silly try-on indulgence…they were epic!

At first I sort of dismissed the glitter as a holiday-ish element, but the overall shape of the shoe makes it THE PERFECT PUMP. If you look at the proportion of the platform with the thicker heel and the rounded toe, the glitter really becomes secondary…crazy sounding I know, but really it’s all about the proportion. So visions of holiday parties extinguished, think about these with skinny jeans and a blazer, or pencil skirt, relaxed tee, gold accessories, and clutch. Something like this….

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.
