Archive for the ‘Cynthia Vincent Shoes’ Category
Yellow is a hard color to pull off, especially when it’s on your shoes. I never owned yellow shoes, and I’m pretty sure that since the time I turned 12 I never wore anything yellow.
This spring, however, things are going to change. Yellow is big, and some of yellow shoes proposed by the designers are positively delightful. Every year I make one big shoe resolution–a couple of years ago it was throwing out my high heels; last year was buying more peep-toes; and this year, I think I’m going to make the leap to yellow.
I’m not sure what to choose though, especially when the choices are so varied!

…I’ll tell you what, I’m going to go and mull over this for a while…
Hola, shoe-lovers! One of your bloggers (c’est moi, bien sûr) has been head over well-shod heels in a project that has consumed her life for…oh, too long to count now. The project is more or less out of my hands now, and the anxious wait for a review has commenced.
The point is, I am just now starting to realize how much of a solace shoes have been to me. There is nothing like a good session of shoe-shopping/browsing to restore my faith in joy and beauty after a prolonged session of dreary alliterative drudgery. I am slowly rediscovering — and savoring every minute of it!– what The Manolo has dubbed “the joy that is the shoes.” Let me tell you, he knows what he’s talking about!
I’ve been seeing so much sparkle, color, and wit (yes, wit!) browsing for the shoes of this season that, well, my spirits have been almost restored. Oh, and here’s what I got out of this:
Cynthia Vincent’s Judy silver ballet flat from the good folks at Heels.com (see, they also have flats!). My wardrobe was missing something silver (so hot right now), and what is great about these is that they have the ombre shading, so they’re really a gray-pewter in the back and a shinier silver in front. Very versatile!
I had misgivings about two things with this pair: the elastic back, and the flimsy sole. Both were unfounded–the shoes conformed to my feet and stayed put without a problem, and the sole is generously padded, so they’re really really comfy.
Ah, it’s good to be back in shoe-world. Remember, gals, when you’re in a funk, take comfort in the joy that is the shoes!
This season was replete with wooden, cloggish-type platform wedges topped with Mary Jane buckle detailing. So, whether you’re getting a style that’s on the way out, such as:
Or you choose a style that’s on the way in:
…it seems you can’t go wrong either way!
I’m going gaga over these Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent ‘Twiggy’ wedges. The towering stacked heel will put you 5 inches above us ordinary mortals, putting the world, quite literally, at your feet. Luscious white patent leather is complimented by a nonchalant ribbon tie over the Mary Jane strap. A delightful, flirtatious, heart-warming confection, guaranteed to brighten and heighten your spirits. Also available in black from Shopbop for the rather blood pressure-raising price of $357.
I’m loving these "Imperial" half d’orsay pumps from Cynthia Vincent. It’s the delicate tooled leather, with beautiful details, in a marshmellow-cream color, or the silver whipstitching, or the wearable 2 1/4 inch stacked heel–or perhaps all of the above. Whatever it is, I would gladly dance my night away in these–preferrably paired with diaphanous, gauzy, flesh-hued gown with fluttering sleeves. And a tiara. Or not. At any rate, if you’ve got $400 to spare, they’re available at Anthropologie.
