BeachMint has added another line to it’s group. It started with JewelMint with Kate Bosworth October 2010, then added StyleMint, a collection of t-shirts with the Olsen girls in July 2011, BeautyMint with Jessica Simpson in October 2011 and now Rachel Bilson has joined the group with ShoeMint, which went live not long ago.
Rachel and her stylist Nichole Chavez are the stylists, Steve Madden is the production guy. I don’t know if it will be only Steve Madden shoes or if there will be shoes he licenses – which is a huge spectrum of choices.
This is what the rest of the debut line looks like.
Nine West is stepping into the fragrance business with its first scent, Love Fury, due out in mid-January. This news is a little dated since they announced it a month ago, but I always seem to be a day late and a dollar short.
I thought the bottle was fairly clever. Nine West will also will include a specially designed Love Fury pump, a pointed-toe platform available in black satin and an array of other colors and fabrications. (more…)
This shoe has been around for quite a while. There are several colors and versions; peep toe, sling back, booties, suede, 80 mm and 105 mm high, and a zillion colors. I had one version of this shoe in my Saks Shopping Cart, waited too long and now it is gone.
After Kate Winslet wore the black suede version with a Stella McCartney dress, I wanted you to see them again. I love the curve in the platform, the heel has a pretty, pretty curve and is a little thicker than a lot of designer shoes. I tend towards a thicker heel for stability, because, quite frankly, falling down is a little embarrassing.
This silver shoe is new for this season available for $750 at Nordstrom’s. Wonderful shoe for Holiday time. Can’t you just see yourself wearing something this pretty?
I am simultaneously thrilled and terrified to behold Brian Atwood’s ‘Pazza’ pumps:
Holy Moly, that’s a whole lotta shoe!
