Archive for the ‘Georgina Goodman Shoes’ Category
If you are young enough to have missed the last round of neon and ultra-brights the last time they visited the fashion scene (not counting the rave/club scene) , you are probably the perfect age to enjoy Georgina Goodman’s colorful and funky shoes.
And, with the resurgence of, guyliner, 80′s reminiscent fashions from leggings to lace & underwear-as-outerwear, puffer vests, and multicolored/new new wave/emo mullets that would do Flock of Seagulls proud, such brilliant, neon colors feel entirely at home added to the mix.
One caution: If you, like me, are old enough to have rocked any (or heaven help us, all) of the above fashions for any length of time during your personal high school or college jaunt through the 80′s, there is a good chance you should not attempt to do the same today.
But, if you must imbibe of the fountain of the 80′s, these Georgina Goodman’s are a low-risk way to, rather literally, dip your foot into the water of memory lane….How’s that for painfully mixed metaphors!?
I have to tell you. Those sandals with the color blocks of black, pink, turquoise, and yellow up there? They bring back fond memories of my first real ‘teenager’ outfit. Oh yeah. This was no hand-me-down - a common occurrence in a family with 4 older sisters. This outfit had not a single touch of little-kid frou-frou detail on it anywhere; it was just super-cool 1980-something goodness: a black button-down top with a turquoise collar, a just-at-the-knee colorblocked black, pink, and turquoise skirt, a pair of shockingly vibrant turquoise tights, and my first pair of ‘adult’ patent kitten heels with a bow over the vamp. Oh, baby.
I had those pumps for years.
Oh, yeah, good times & good memories.
These Georgina Goodman’s are just waiting to be made into somebody’s current fashion love and future fashion memory.
Let the good times start for both young and young-at-heart shoe-lovers.
Several people I have talked to have serious crushes on over the knee boots. So c’mon, let’s look at boots!
Two Lips Kitty Kat $102 at Zappos There are four colors. Black, tan, purple and grey.
I am seeing this silouette a lot in stores right now. Type Z Riderz $98 at Zappos
You can’t have over the knee boots without including Pleaser USA
With over the knee boots, it seems the higher the heel the more into stripper territory they get. Personally, I think they look hot, as in temperature, hot. My 23 year old son just laughed when I asked his opinion. He still won’t say why he is laughing.
*woop woop woop*
The red lights are flashing and the sirens are blaring.
That includes such “Previously Seen on Shoeblog” treats as the Taryn Rose Kaelyn (now only $226):
These Georgina Goodman low-heeled pumps (now just $203)
And the super comfy Diane von Furstenberg Milano’s I wore for the DvF photoshoot (now only $146).
Act fast, since sizes are limited. Go forth and sale shop, Shoeblog readers.
A good low pump is hard to find–you know what I’m saying? When you’re looking for a subtle lift without the discomfort of 3 inch+ heels in a dressy and interesting shoe, but you want to avoid the triple-whammy of 1) flat-as-pancake-soles, 2) thick low heels, and 3) stodgy black pumps of nondescript origin–your options are limited at best.
Which is why I cherish this Georgina Goodman snake leather pump with yellow leather trim and flirty but non-fussy bow on the vamp:
That’s what I call kicking heels–all the style, none of the discomfort, and supremely versatile (I can imagine wearing them with a pencil skirt for an office look, or with a mini skirt or even jeans out and about town with friends). Plus, my yellow obsession this season has been well documented (can’t help it! It’s a HOT color, people!). The only thing slightly unfriendly about them is the price tag–they’re $405 at Joseph’s, but hey! as we shoe lovers know oh-so-well, beauty and versatility come at a cost.
Is there a name for these shoes? Full back coverage, but a bare thong in front? They seem to be the opposite of slingbacks (if footwear had antonyms, that is). For example:
A very similar style comes from Irregular Choice–’Dirrty’, available for $110 at Nordstrom, in black or ‘snake’:
By comparison, these below are positively business-like:
Or how about these Tracy Reese fiery thongs, $338 at Anthropologie. What’s that sticking from the back, you say? Why, I’m glad you asked:
Shark-teeth brass-detailed spurs!!! Now, that’s original! And scary!
And these Cynthia Rowley ‘Tuxedo’ thongs sport a minimum-coverage quarter, positively risque compared to the styles above–$131 at Anthropologie. Strangely, they remind me of a penguin.
Here’s a much more dressed-up version, the Azzaro Crystal sandal, $570 at Neiman Marcus.
However, I urge you to stay away from some variations, like the model above, which are indeed tragic ($118 at Free People Boutique). Rather, take advantage of the current sales and snag this chic Michael Kors ‘Gavi’ sandal, only $70 at Bloomingdales (sadly, only in sizes 7 and 7.5).
