For Valentine’s Day, fashion house Burberry has these Patent Leather Peep Toe Pumps ($296.25 at Zappos) in Berry Red. That price is marked down from $395, and let me just ask, is that not highly tempting?
First of all, I have to say that I love the color. In spite of being classified as Berry Red, the shade looks more like a dark wine or a burgundy, with definite pink tones rather than red. It is gorgeous, especially in patent leather, which gives it a rather delicious looking shine.
I also love the detailing. (more…)
Sometimes, all you want are some sneakers. It may be for practical reasons, just to give your feet, toes, and arches a break from sky high heels. It might be too cold for anything else. Granted, the very word “sneakers” does not immediately conjure up images of fashion forward edginess – but let me introduce you to Burberry’s Coated Canvas & Patent Leather Sneakers ($295 at Saks) and see if you change your mind.
I have a lot of sneakers, and I’ll be honest, most of them aren’t what I’d call fashion savvy sneakers. They’re trainers, and I rarely want to be seen wearing them. My current favorite pair are hot pink and silver, and while they’re cool to wear when I’m taking the dogs for a walk or pounding the aisles of the grocery store, that’s about the extent of it. I’ve got classic hightops I’ll wear out sometimes if I’m in a punk rock kind of mood, but never have I stumbled across a pair of sneakers like this, (more…)
To me, Burberry is the height of class and edginess, and I don’t think anything personifies that more than Burberry’s Quilted Black and Grey Nylon Platform Boots ($750 at Zappos). I love plaid and checks as long as they are tastefully done. Incorporating them into a pair of shoes can get a bit tricky, because the patterns can get a little campy if you aren’t careful — but that definitely is not the case here.
I love the juxtaposition of the patent leather with the stripe checked design. This is not just your basic black boot, not by any means. Even the toe is shaped in a unique way – not quite pointed, not quite rounded. The heel is a somewhat reasonable two and a half inches, so if you have a tendency to fall down (as I myself am inclined to do), at least you’ll only fall 2 inches instead of 5 inches as with some other stilettos.

For me, summer means lots of time at the beach. Although I no longer live on California’s Central Coast, I still spend every moment I can in the sand, or at least dressing like I’m headed to the beach. While in Santa Cruz for the 4th of July I realized I need new flip flops! There are some great new designer sandals available this summer that are rather stylish. Pure luxury at the beach – I love it!

With the three major fall 2010 fashion events, New York, Milan and Paris, concluding, there were a few shoe trends that recurred in several collections. This is what we saw. Mad Men curves are in. Fur is in. Many of the big name fashion houses went with classic investment pieces that were timeless looking. Several of the lesser known houses had some beautiful and interesting pieces. Let’s look at some shoes – that’s why we are all here.
Pointy toe shoes are returning, so dust off your Guess “Carrie” shoes because we will be seeing more pointy toes in the future.
Valentino. There was a flat and a kitten heel also presented in this collection.
While stilettoes were seen, typically if the heel was high - especially boots -then it was a chunky heel. I love the stability chunky heels offer. Can you imagine tottering around in the above Vuitton shoes if the heel was pencil thin?
Erdem – love the print on these boots.
Not many wedges were seen, so I am guessing we will be seeing those phased out over the next couple of years.
Bottega Veneta featured this wedge on all the shoes.
Dries Van Noten. I LOVE this half wedge.
With the retro girly-fication of the styles no tough girl platforms were necessary.
Lanvin (Arguably the best line of the season.)
But lots of platforms were presented.
Christian Louboutin for Phillip Lim
Brian Atwood for Victoria Beckham.
There must have been 10 different colors of this shoe because Mrs. Beckham likes to match her shoes to her dress. These shoes are nice but nothing to hyper-ventilate over. Her dresses were nice, wearable, and pretty.
Over the knee boots will be around for a while. We saw over the knee boots in several presentations. Since this is the fall season, we should not be surprised.
Burberry Prorsum presented some of the season’s favorite boots.
Statement shoes were everywhere.
If you are a chiropractor, you NEED these shoes.
Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte
Chanel. Notice the ice heel.
Chanel’s show, in my opinion was one of the goofiest ideas I think I have ever seen. Uncle Karl shipped a glacier from Sweden to Paris, had it sculpted it for the runway, put it on a swimming pool type platform, then the models walked through about an inch of melting glacier water. He presented some beautiful suits, IF you could see past the heinous fake fur that accompanied these outfits. Global warming, glaciers melting, save the furry animals was the message of this show. Here’s the thing. 1) Lagerfield used more fur in Fendi than virtually any other collection, so why use cheap looking fake fur with Chanel. 2) The carbon footprint of this show was massive and the power it took to present this show could have powered a small country. (Here is where I usually go off on my global-warming-leadership-hypocrasy tirade, but I won’t because you came here to see shoes.)
OK, I rarely look at purses, but I WANT THIS PURSE.
Forgive me for this long post, but there were so many beautiful shoes, and even more beautiful outfits. I wanted to show them all to you but that isn’t possible.
