These satin D&G sandals have me feeling ultra girly and feminine (I’m usually a bit of a tomboy). The satin bows with a butterfly ornament are sweet and dainty. The quilted detailing on the sole is a nice touch. It’s too bad that no one can see the quilting once you actually wear the shoe, but doesn’t it look luxurious and make you wish there was real padding until the textured quilt design?
D&G is having an online sale for the spring/summer merchandise so this D&G sandal, which was originally over $600, is now on sale for $310.
So, yesterday I was all about Georgina Goodman and her colorful and playful shoe offerings.
Today, I just wanted to expand on that whole idea of spring colors. It’s not just Georgina Goodman who is producing colorful styles amid of sea of 2010 neutrals. Among these are Dsquared², Dolce & Gabbana, and Marc by Marc Jacobs.
Here are the top styles that caught my eye.
As always, adding vibrant color or color-blocked accessories makes any more conservative outfit ‘Pop’….. Keep the rest simple if the shoes are speaking.
Styles like these are not for wallflowers or those unable to bask in the occasional, perfect, moment of sheer fashion fabulousness.
Remember, everyone deserves to be fantastic every now & then. Shoes like these are simply tools to help you find your inner diva and let her out.

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.
We have seen the designers in today’s recession trying to woo their customers by presenting classic design and focusing on quality. Dolce and Gabbana’s show started with images of the designers showing their craft, then they went on to give spotlight to their employees – showing them hone their craft to create wonderful pieces that will last for generations. Apparently, it was quite a moving presentation that made a huge emotional connection.
Here is what they presented.
Love the velvet. Years ago there was a Seinfeld episode where George Castanza tells how much he loves velvet. He describes wanting a suit of velvet. My sentiments exactly.
I love the women’s classic make up.
The above boots look like a lace version of the boots below. I am not sure about these shoes.
I lied. I don’t like them, I am sure of it.
My Grandpa’s dress socks with pumps. I am still not understanding this trend, but we saw it everywhere on the runways.
Beaded pumps. Pretty.
My favorites are below. They had a couple of versions of this shoes. The t-strap is shown in the first photo. There was also a maryjane. I like this shoe a lot. They are reminiscent of the pumps that Phillip Treacy did for Valentino.
Pretty shoes. Pretty outfits. Pretty models. I am enjoying the resurgence of the classics.
Add two more shoes to my dream closet, if you please.
These sumptuous velvet pumps could easily be another contender for the Red Queen’s shoes… And yes, I am excited to see what Tim Burton et. al. have come up with in regards to the whole Alice in Wonderland story mythos – too bad I have to wait until March to find out.
Taking a page from the Icon Shoes playbook, these D&G platforms take the art-on-shoes graphics up a few pegs. Utterly impractical; I love them completely.
My taste has definitely been running toward the, shall we say, devastatingly Baroque of late. Perhaps that’s because I have been spending way too much time either at home in my workout clothing or out and about in warm, yet not exactly figure-flattering, winter layers.
Whatever the case, I’ll end here with an enthusastic “O Frabjous Day! Callooh! Callay”. Some shoes manage to give me that warm and happy feeling just by looking at them.
