Designed by the one and only Galliano, they come in a variety of colors, saturated brights that will have you jumping for joy that winter is really over.
The entire collection had a nautical theme, so why not take these on a cruise! They actually would transition from day to night, with a cute little colorful silk dress.
The feather platforms are 750 pounds from Christian Dior. Call +44 20 7172 0172 or check your local Dior boutique for details.
Make the jump to see it in lovely canary yellow!
I was surprised to see a FitFlop married to what looked like an UGG, at a store in the East Village.
We’ve written about Fitflop booties before, but this photo shows you the other side of the shoe, the shaft of the boot uncuffed.
I kind of like them this way. Looking at the “slipper” appearance of it before, I was repulsed. Unrolled, they are a little bit cuter and taller. I kind of like how the shearling puffs out of the top, as well as the slanted top of the shaft.
This is a stain- and water-resistant sheepskin upper/shearling-lined bootie outfitted with a durable nonslip rubber sole and Agion technology for essential odor protection. Basically, Agion uses silver ions to attack smelly microbes and prevent those cells from multiplying.
Fitflops use Microwobbleboard technology, which means the midsole stimulates your leg muscles as you walk, giving you a mini workout in every step.
The heel height is 1.75 inches with a 1 inch platform, and the boot shaft is 5.5 inches.
Reviews online have been good, so if you’re a FitFlop kinda gal who also loves UGGs, I’m sure you’ll be thrilled by this bootie that you can stroll around the neighborhood doing errands in. I’m not a FitFlop gal, both because I’m skeptical of toning effects and because they’re too expensive for flipflops, but for this boot, with its materials, it might be reasonable.
Roger Vivier is known for his classics. I’ve perused his store on the Upper East Side, and it was full of matrons.
So I was worried that he’d never catch a drift of the younger side.
But now here he comes, with a fun fabric pump that’s made for the younger set, but still has his classic buckle.
There were quite a few younger ladies oohing and aahing over these for their combo of classic shape and fun, funky design. Way to go, Vivier!
Roger Vivier’s Striped Buckle Pump, $895 at Bergdorf Goodman at 57th Street and 5th Avenue.
Anyhow, I like this cutout, both for its fun cutout shapes that form an “X” on the vamp, and for its gold-taupe color scheme and bootie-sandal shape.
It’s got a 4.5 inch heel and 0.8 inch platform, so this is no low rider. But the upper is truly soft, as is the inside of the heel.
Neutral, but not too neutral, with its warm color. This shoe will go with so much in your wardrobe, and transition from day to night well.
So, you knew fluorescents were back in a major way. Maybe you even expected your 80s styles to come back, and held onto your fluorescent skirts or sneakers. But Christopher Kane has a way of doing things that’s anything but expected. He’s combined a 70s platform shape with an 80s fluorescent color.
This leather-covered heel rises as high as 5.25 inches, but touts a platform of 1.5 inches, luckily, so it’s basically a 3.75 inch heel. With an adjustable grip-tape ankle strap, leather lining and padded insole, this is made for comfort-despite-height.
