We’re bringing you some Dolce & Gabbana deliciousness from Nordstrom’s live designer shoe sale. And look, I have a secret to tell you: I’ve fallen in love. It’s real this time. Every other time was just infatuation, I know that now. I want to pledge myself to Dolce & Gabbana’s Lace Overlay Satin Mary Janes ($489.90 at Nordstrom). I promise to love, honor, pamper, and show off these shoes, until death or broken heel do us part.
I am not even kidding. We’ve already established that I love Mary Janes, and these should go in the designer shoe Hall of Fame for most perfect pair of Mary Janes ever in existence. The lace overlay is what is really killing me, but I promise, the death is so sweet. (more…)
We have a very interesting highlight featured in Nordstrom’s live designer shoe sale: the Manolo Blahnik Nesta Fur Trim Bootie ($769.90 at Nordstrom). Now, this is the kind of shoe I like to see. Call me crazy, but I think all truly trendsetting fashion should be at least a little controversial. If someone’s not hating and someone else isn’t falling in love, then it’s simply not original enough.
That being said, let’s step back and take a look at these booties, shall we? The suede looks buttery both in color and texture. Even through the photographs, you can just tell the leather will feel soft and supple against your skin. (more…)
In honor of the designer shoe sale going on live at Nordstrom, I’m going to be highlighting a few of the hottest and most surprising shoes featured today. You can save big on a lot of these buys, like the Manolo Blahnik Pascalare Over the Knee Stretch Lace Boots ($624.90 at Nordstrom). Now, I love Manolos. I know Manolos. And when I first saw these, I did not realize they were Manolos. I thought there was a mix up somewhere. That just goes to show that just when you think you have the design aesthetic of Manolo Blahnik down to a science, the flip gets switched on you.
Now, aside from the fact that these boots are a whopping 40 percent off, there are many other features that make them exquisite and drool-worthy as well. (more…)
Like many other women, I first fell in love with Manolo Blahnik shoes way, way back in the day, when Carrie Bradshaw introduced them to all us regular girls. I mean, I’ll be honest, prior to Sex and the City, I probably thought “Manolo” was some kind of ethnic food. What can I say? I was sheltered. I’m forever thankful to HBO, however, because now I can properly worship these Campy Mary Janes ($645 at Barneys). But campy? Honey, not quite. How about classic?
See, I adore Mary Janes. I’ve been that way since I was a little girl, prancing around in black patent leather baby Janes. What I love about these in particular has a lot to do with why I love Manolo Blahnik designs. (more…)

Ladies, allow me to present to you the Pierre Hardy Fur Moc Wedge ($1,575 at Barneys). If you need a moment, please take it; I’ll wait. I had to take several myself. Are we ready? Great. So, I cannot decide if I think these are fabulous or full of dreckitude – which is one of the reasons I love Pierre Hardy in the first place. Say what you will about the brand, but the shoes in the collection are always innovative. Whatever else you might say about these wedges, you definitely have to admit that.
Hardy claims to employ sleek lines in the shoes in the collection, and the aesthetic is both sensual and out there. (more…)
