I am simultaneously thrilled and terrified to behold Brian Atwood’s ‘Pazza’ pumps:
Holy Moly, that’s a whole lotta shoe!

On this beautiful, sunny day, Brian Atwood’s Aurora pump makes me want to say “I Do” all over again. The rhinestone heels are sure to make a gal’s feet sparkle on her special day. Okay, sure, the floral arrangment may be over the top, but shouldn’t all weddings be?
While the Aurora comes in the traditional white wedding color, I’m partial towards the blue satin version. Wouldn’t it make the perfect ‘Something Blue’ item?
Shoelovers, I implore you. Run, don’t walk! Elyse Walker just reduced their sale merchandise to up to 75% off. These fishnet Brian Atwood pumps, as worn by the ever stylish Victoria Beckham, are now on sale for a very palatable $160, down from the original $640 price! Just be sure to size up as Brian Atwood tends to run a bit small. These are incredible sale prices for Jimmy Choo, Bottega Veneta, and Brian Atwood shoes and the merchandise is sure to be depleted soon. For all the shoes on sale, click here.
I don’t know if it’s the unfortunate pre-root-canal cocktail of antibiotics, ibuprofen & pain medicine that I have flowing in my system…or if it’s simply that I am more fickle than I normally like to admit. Whatever the reason…and, all griping aside on how ‘over studs’ I am and how glad I’ll be to see the end of the whole spikes & studs trend (and I am & will be, honestly! We’ve been seeing studs & spikes since ’08 for goodness sakes…remember Rodarte & Gucci – anyone?) - I confess that I seriously*make that intensely* like these ‘Greta’ sandals from Brian Atwood.
Unfortunately, after 2 years of trending, many of the metal-adorned shoes out there are, at best, unoriginal – and, at worst, look like somebody took a basic shoe, threw on some preschool paste & then tossed a can of metal at it to see where things would land, and then slapped a price tag on it.
In contrast, these Atwoods are simple and rather sweet. They are not ‘trying to be rocker-chic’ or ‘tough girl’ and will not have anyone mistaking your for a lost fashion victim. These are what you get when someone designs a low-key, color-blocked, neutral sandal and realizes it needs just a tiny bit of extra ‘pop’. In this case, it works.

Happy holidays, shoenistas! I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas, and that you’re looking forward to an awesome New Year’s Eve. If you’re still on the look out for some stellar shoes for the biggest party night of the year, you might want to turn your attention to Brian Atwood. His Balleto Platform Sandals ($1,042.50 at Net-a-Porter) are nothing less than stunning. I mean, wait until you hear the details on these heels, you’re going to flip your stuff. Best part? Net-a-Porter is still having a ginormous, ridiculously fabulous sale, so these are marked down from $2,085. You can save over a thousand dollars!
And honestly, these shoes are worth it. Brian Atwood is almost challenging some old school Alexander McQueen awesome sauce with these sandals. They are the epitome of cocktail couture, highly innovative and totally modern. Made of black leather and plastic, the clear material is beautifully embellished with studded crystals. (more…)
