OK, caveat #1: it’s early in Spring/Summer 2012′s New York Fashion Week, and there are still plenty of designers to come.
Caveat #2: this is ready to wear, not couture, and couture always brings home the bacon when it comes to snazzy shoes.
Caveat #3: it’s Spring/Summer, which veers less dramatic than Fall/Winter.
THAT SAID… the first few shows’ shoes have been so dull, I’m afraid I’m staining them all with my drool as I nod off while perusing.
But to paraphrase the pseudo motto of the currently-embattled United States Postal Service, Neither humidity nor rain nor hurricanes nor dullness of shoes stays these bloggers from the swift completion of their electronic rounds.
BCBG sent their models out in these clunkers, over and over and over again.
We all know the line, “April showers bring forth May flowers”.
Well, it’s April. And for many of us, the weather is warming up for two or more days in a row, so those May flowers should be popping up pretty soon.
In the meantime, I have gathered a rainbow of colorful shoes in delicate pastels to echo the floral tones that will soon be blooming in an outdoors near you.
So I was channel surfing last night and saw Kaley Cuoco on David Letterman. She was wearing these gorgeous purple suede pumps and a little black dress. I couldn’t focus on what she was saying because I kept watching to see if the camera would show her shoes. Here is a photo as she is leaving the Ed Sullivan Theater, covering the LBD with a satin trench. Wonderful look. Love the shiny trench, love the matte shoes.
The shoes are from the Brian Atwood’s 2009/2010 Fall Winter collection. How beautiful are these shoes? There are about 6 color variations of this shoe.
Now, I could not find any online but I found some platform pumps that are available online. A few of you have said you have given up on suede because it is discouraging to have your shoes ruined in the weather, so I included a few smooth leather shoes.
I bought a pair of emergency Parigi’s last April. They are indeed high; they are indeed dramatic; they do indeed show toe cleavage. They are comparable to other shoes that are the same price.
Notice the thicker heel here, offering better stability. It has a heel that is about 3 inches so it could be a good work shoe.

While economic events have been a bit dreary over the past six months or so, it’s nice to see that we won’t have to worry about being stuck with spring shoe options that are either conservative or gloomy.
So, what am I seeing at online retailers as well as in every brick-and-mortar store with a shoe section?
What kind of color? From Payless to Macy’s to Saks, just about every primary, prism-based color is on tempting display.
So, if you like bold colors, then this is the season for you.
Here are some (mostly) high-end highlights.
What if you want to play with the whole rainbow instead of just choosing by the individual color? Well, multi-hued styles are available too. Heck, many of us are just starting to experience 2009′s first rainy, spring-time weather; it’s as good a reason as any to bring your own rainbow to the party.
Here’s to a colorful and optimistic spring.
* See, you really can’t get away from cork & rafia this year.

If you have not yet had your fill of post-Christmas and New Years Day sales, Dillard’s has you covered on affordable shoe fashion.
In addition to today’s Boot Sale, they also have other styles of shoes on sale at 40% off as well.
Some eye-catching options in boots for you to consider:
This first boot just brings to mind the thought of sipping hot cocoa and having cozy conversation with the family in front of a warm fire.
With the quilted fabric and patent contrast, this next one still looks cozy, but has a hint of edge.
This one is all straps and buckle. Super sexy… but the warm brown tones keep it from being too in-your-face and helps keep it’s edge on the more subtle side.
This one (aptly named) has a definite Western vibe. Cute for the gal who loves showing that she’s ‘A Little Bit Country’.
Next, generous fringe for the Boho-Chic Moccasin lover.
Next, throwing me back again to a 1980′s Janet Jackson vibe, are these sexy, kidskin, ‘marching band’ boots.
And, from my favorite Project Runway judge, a straight-up, unapologetically sexy, black leather boot:
As for the shoe and sandal selection? Well, my attention was stolen by some fantastic Vince Camuto Styles. Too bad New Years Eve is already over … Wowza.
I don’t know how long the sales prices are good until … So, hop on over & take a look to see if there is a perfect shoe deal to ring in your New Year.
