Going to Saks’ Shoe Heaven is an experience, especially when they’re having a sale. The shoe floor is so big, it has its own zip code: 10022-SHOE! We’ve written about it before, but with this sale, it deserves a fresh look.
You take an express elevator (here’s a photo of Kellie Pickler in front of said elevator) to the eighth floor and start getting excited while you’re in the elevator, which says 10022-SHOE.
The shoe mecca has its own repair service, Charbonnel chocolate cafe and private room for VIP shopping. There is also a large selection of Roger Vivier bags and shoes against the wall adjacent to the VIP room. I don’t love the Vivier Pilgrim Pumps, but some of the bags are great.
The first thing that hits you when you come in is a tough, black, motorcycle-styled display by some of the most prominent shoe designers today, including McQueen, Choo and Louboutin. Yup, that trend is still rockin strong.
The above shoes are not on sale, unfortunately, but may be by this fall if there are any left.
I will post more photos later, but for now, I’d like for you all to know that it’s going on so you can check it out during your strolling midtown business lunch! Plenty of iconic Marni, Louboutin and Giuseppe Zanotti shoes were on sale. That means that shoes that range from a bottom of around $500 to a top of around $1500 were on sale for around $200 to $500. Not bad.
Don’t get me wrong, there weren’t only 7 to 7.5 shoes on sale, but like many women, that has always been my dream size (I’m an 8.5 to 9), so I snapped a photo of those in wishful thinking.
If you’re buying online, there’s free shipping on all orders with the code SFASUM9, only through today.

10/20/2009 Update: More shoes and handbags from the Jimmy Choo for H&M line over here.
I’m positively purring over news that H&M is doing their first accessories brand collaboration with none other than Jimmy Choo! Hello, Lover!!! The footwear will run from $99 to $129 for boots, with high-end models topping $299 (a bargain when you consider that Choos can go for $600+). Handbags will be priced from $59.95 to $299. And there’s even a clothing line which will complement the accessories. The clothing line will have $69.95 tank tops and $249 suede one-shoulder dresses. Oh yeah, there’s also a men’s line of shoes and accessories, but I digress…
Thanksgiving feast is coming early because the Jimmy Choo for H&M collection will be available starting November 14th. It will only be in 200 stores across the world (please, please let one of them be in Seattle).

The MTV Movie Awards were held over the weekend and since the weather is warm in LA, it was a perfect time to showcase minis and shoes on the red carpet.
First up is my favorite outfit of the night. By the end of this post, I would like to hear yours. It’s worn by Sienna Miller, who wore a sparkling emerald green dress from her own line with these fabulous Nicholas Kirkwood platforms from the Spring 2009 collection. Now, the gold sandals I couldn’t find anywhere, but if you love the style, Luisaviaaroma.com has the Kirkwood purple suede version for $664 on their site.
Ashley Tisdale went for lots of strappy in these Paul and Joe Sister ‘Gypsy’ wedge boots from the Spring/Summer 09 collection.
In the Jimmy Choo corner, Kristen Bell wore Jimmy Choo Studded ‘Blaze’ Sandals, which are $895 at Saks.
Vanessa Hudgens opted for Jimmy Choo ‘Riv’ Ethnic Sandals, on sale for $835 at Saks, with her gold dress. One thing I’ve noticed is that I may not always like the dresses Vanessa wears, but she really rocks the accessories. The MTV Movie Awards as an excellent example of this. The dress looks a little too much like satin sheets. I do, however, think the Choos were an excellent choice along with the jewelry.
Not to be overshown by Jimmy Choo, Louboutin also left his footprint on the red carpet. Two noteworthy shoes were the Christian Louboutin ‘Sometimes’ boot worn by Lauren Conrad.
Leighton Meester of Gossip Girls wore a mesh dress from designer Emilio de la Morena. This outfit is a huge departure from the character she plays on TV and while I love the dress, I wish she had paired it with a more spring-like shoe. Her purple suede shoes are the ‘Brie’ style from Brian Atwoods’ FW09 collection and just seems a bit too heavy for the weather.
The most interesting selection and most easily recognized shoes worn by a celebrity during the MTV awards goes to Twilight star Kristen Stewart. The Converse All-Star High Sneakers would not have been my choice, but according to JustJared, she twisted her ankle so I’m glad she opted for comfort and health over fashion.

While economic events have been a bit dreary over the past six months or so, it’s nice to see that we won’t have to worry about being stuck with spring shoe options that are either conservative or gloomy.
So, what am I seeing at online retailers as well as in every brick-and-mortar store with a shoe section?
What kind of color? From Payless to Macy’s to Saks, just about every primary, prism-based color is on tempting display.
So, if you like bold colors, then this is the season for you.
Here are some (mostly) high-end highlights.
What if you want to play with the whole rainbow instead of just choosing by the individual color? Well, multi-hued styles are available too. Heck, many of us are just starting to experience 2009′s first rainy, spring-time weather; it’s as good a reason as any to bring your own rainbow to the party.
Here’s to a colorful and optimistic spring.
* See, you really can’t get away from cork & rafia this year.

Oh My! The Eighties are upon us.
I knew my high school fashions were considering re-surfacing last year when I began catching early glimpses of puffer vests on teenagers around town. Now, with more kids looking like Madonna-as-Material-Girl, Eighties Style is having a serious fashion renaissance.
As evidence, I present Jelly Shoes. A fashion choice in that I actually never indulged in the last time around – having at that point in my teenagedom already have moved into kitten-heeled pumps and the plotting of how to get a pair of sturdy-heeled (cobblestone appropriate) knee-high boots for my 17th birthday.
But I digress. Probably out of an avoidance instinct.
Oh yes, Jellies. Always a style that makes me think of 8-year old girls in pink shirts and floral embroidered jeans; perhaps because they have not gone out of fashion with that age group? I simply wonder how grown ladies pull these off. But hey, if it helps you keep a sense of play in your life, go for it.
So, while these are obviously not a trend that is calling to me, perhaps there is something in here that some of you folks reading will find to your liking. One thing I can tell you, designers this time out have not limited their styles to sparkly pink jelly flats and flip-flops.
We have sandals (including the still-hot gladiator silhouette):
Oxfords (And you thought that this trend was on the way out!):
And, of course, Heels:
Oh, and in case you are wincing just a little bit at the not-so-humble prices being charged for colorful pieces of molded plastic (or is it flubber?) there should be Payless versions soon enough.
