Chanel’s Resort 2010 Calfskin Sandals look like a bizarre black patent wave, or an arrow. How do I click the “Do Not Like” button on this window display?
The Metallic Finish Lambskin Sandal, however? I want to click “LOVE.” It’s weird childish princess material from a Miyazaki movie and what in god’s name would I wear it with with that red platform, but LOVE anyway.
The whole red and black theme isn’t really buckling my strap, so to speak. But it matches the look of the current Chanel model exactly. I suppose we’re supposed to aspire to look like a sexy anorexic ginger siren, but I’m just not feelin’ it (the campaign, that is). (Sorry about the reflection of the Tourneau world clocks from across the street. It’s really difficult to not get their glare).
Back to the drawing board, Chanel. Bring us something new, exciting and quality, not this weirdly shaped red and black business! This is your resort Cruise shoe collection, but who wears such boudoir things on holiday in the tropics?
-Manolo Blahnik offers his thoughts on the spring 2010′s shoe trends. His take on Chanel’s runway clogs? Manolo says, “…When I design, personally I like delicate shoes, but I actually like this season’s clogs; I love flats – and I like the peasant look. We have actually ordered two styles of clogs to be made this season for Manolo Blahnik.” [via Vogue UK]
-Imelda Marcos’ shoe collection gets its own musical. The shoes made up 40% of the $1,500-$2,000 costume budget. [via WSJ]
-The Presidential Suite at the Ritz-Carlton Palm Beach boasts a wall of shoe art which pays tribute to former First Ladies and other dignitaries. Since the suite costs $4,000 to $6,000 a night, the closest we’ll get to viewing these shoes is online. [via Stylelist]
-Christian Louboutin is known as a shoe and handbag designer. For the release of the Le Rituel champagne, Louboutin stepped out of his norm and into the role of a movie director. Watch the Cinderella inspired video on YouTube.
It’s time for another shoe showdown. Who do you think wore these Chanel peep-toe booties, from the Spring 2009 collection, better? The runway model, Diane Kruger, or Alexa Chung?
I’m going to give this one to the Chanel runway model, despite the hairpiece. Alexa looks mismatched in a biege dress with black/white booties. While I typically love what Diane wears, the crossover messenger bag seems off with her outfit. I have come to expect more wow from her.

Chanel isn’t just for matrons or uptight Heidi Montag types. They’ve got some adorable things for younger girls, too. I spied some remainders of the popular Chanel Camellia Jellies at Saks. Unfortunately, they seem to be unavailable on Saks’ or Neiman Marcus’ websites. However, I can affirm that there were pairs in store at Saks. Whether they’ll have them in your size, I’m not sure. Call 212-753-4000 for more information or to see if they’ll check for your size. They supposedly run a tad small, so you’d be wise to check for the size above as well. They were in the low $200 range, as I recall.
The colors they had were clear, green, yellow and pink.
Here’s a better promo shot of them. Aren’t they adorable? I wore jellies a lot as a child, so these bring back memories for me, but are much more fashionable than my netted pairs!
It’s been a VERY rainy summer in New York. Annoyingly rainy, as I’ve mentioned before, bringing out the boots in droves. It’s threatening to rain this morning, in fact. I wish I had a pair of these, which I instantly fell in love with when I saw them at Saks. How have I not seen them before, I wondered. With the black camellia and off-white camellia, as well as the quilted sole, these are too cute! Hurry into Saks to get them, they’re not on the website as far as I can tell!

First look images of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland movie are out. I can’t wait to see what fantastical and colorful creations Burton has in store for us. Judging from this picture of Helena Bonham Carter who plays the Red Queen, it’ll be wonderful and a true fairy tale.
Fuschia wedding bride and I felt these red velvet shoes from the Chanel’s Paris-Moscou’s 2009 collection would be a perfect fit for the Red Queen. Every minute detail of the shoes appears to be custom tailored for the queen. I’m especially enamored by the beautiful ornamental dome heel, which match the queen’s ruby staff and the delicate lined crystals on the buckles.
