They say that all that glitters is gold, but you know what? I’m not even that fond of gold. I’m a solid silver girl, so you can just imagine how I squealed over these Giuseppe Zanotti Glitter Mid-Heel Ankle Boots ($895 at Neiman Marcus). Sure, they sort of look like something Michael Jackson might have come up with back in his bejeweled glove heyday, and okay, I’m not exactly sure how often I would ever wear them, but I can’t help loving them all the same. They are just so bold. If you’re going to wear these boots out and about, even if it’s for a night out at a bar or club, it shows you’ve got serious courage and self-confidence.
The silhouette and style of these boots are the things that really do it for me. (more…)
Sometimes you encounter a style and just know you’ve seen it before.
The differences between these are minor, but noticeable when comparing them side by side. Which ones do you prefer: the originals from Zanotti, or the near-copies from Camuto?
Also, how do you feel about designer inspired styles that are near-knockoffs of higher-end designers? Such styles are legal at this time as long as no trademarks from the original design are copied onto the lower-end style – but should we demand more creativity from mid-end brands who can probably afford to invest in more original design talent rather than resorting to being runway copyists?
*I should note that a lot of Camuto designs are not so imitative. I love the brand, in fact, because they have been some of the best-fitting heels I have found for my arch height and shape.
Rain, rain, go away.
Is anybody else having weird spring weather? Rain one day, clear the next, then right on back to more rain?
This is not the weather one expects when living proximate to an area nicknamed, ‘The Palm Springs of Washington’.
Madame Nature needs to tell Old Man Winter to back off, already. After all, summer starts in less than a week. Most of the flowers I’ve seen are – sadly – attached to fast-growing weeds that have been thriving in this rapidly shifting weather.
So, here are my consolation flowers for today:
Giuseppi Zanotti E90042 sandals $875 $411 at Zappos.com . . . for one lucky size-10 foot out there &
Now, message to whoever is in charge of summer, ‘Hi. It’s mid-way through June,and I’d like my flowers already. Peep-toe appropriate weather would also be greatly appreciated. -G. ‘
I personally love the minimalist white sandal with just one strap and the black and red heel. This is not the exact same shoe as it has a skull on the big toe (so many skulls on shoes lately!), but the price is the same: $485. Whew!
But these blinged-out babies? I’ll pass. They’re $675.
Some other pretty summer sandals shined from the window. I can’t wait for spring!
One thing I can say for him is he’s hardly ever boring!

A ton of money goes into ad campaigns as the fashion industry tries to convince us to purchase their product. The US fashion industry alone spent $144 billion on advertising last year. Several lines have released some of their ads for Spring and Summer 2010. Some are great, some are not. Let’s have a look.
I am weary of the pouting, leggy girl, wearing nothing more than lingerie, heels and a come hither look, sitting or laying on a sofa/chair, with soft focus. Virtually every shoe, handbag, fragrance, lingerie, and cosmetic advertisement features at least three of these components. Snore.
Alexander McQueen’s ad is visually striking. It took me a while to find the shoes, then the girl. It’s a great ad, but the only thing I see is snakes.
Humor in ads almost always attracts me, which is why this Giuseppi Zanotti is one of my favorites. I can’t decide which is cuter, the boy or the shoe.
If the product is not attractive, such as the Alexander McQueen or Balenciaga shoes, then a striking advertisement will make no difference. I’m not buying it. With the Paciotti and Choo shoes, the ad is tiresome, but it does let me get a look at the shoes. The Zanotti ad is able to feature a shoe and not annoy me. That boy is SO cute. It does it’s job. Which ads work for you, which ones don’t?
Update: Here’s Chanel’s Spring 2010 which was shot by Karl Lagerfield.
