Moschino is one of those shoe-brands that leads me from shoe-crush to shoe-crush. It happened again today with these red-hot, laser-cut pumps.
With their elegant filigree design, these had me at ‘laser-cut’.
I’m not usually one to start even thinking about Christmas until we’ve at least finished cooking the turkey for Thanksgiving, but the shiny red-patent and swirling-filigree design combo has these shooting straight to the top of my Christmas list.
They wouldn’t even have to be wrapped up; they come with their own festive bows.
Hi there, I read your blog almost every day and I thought you’d be the perfect person to ask about a pair of shoes that Solange Knowles is wearing on the attached picture. Please can you help enquire where I can get them, and any more information about them that you might have will be appreciate.
We’re just tickled that you read our blog – thanks for the kind compliments! It really brings a smile to our faces to know that our blog posts don’t go into a black hole, never to be heard from again.
Sometimes we fail to identify a shoe (please help us figure out how to purchase Regina’s black and white pump) but this is one occassion where the shoe stood out so much during fashion week that it was easy to recognize. This is the shoe I dub the ‘two faced shoe’. It’s from the fall 2009 Moschino Cheap and Chic collection, which is covered in this post.
Unfortunately, I was not able to find a place to purchase the shoes online. You might want to try one of the Moschino boutiques or wait and see if they make an appearance on Moschino’s official online store since fall styles are still coming out.
Hope this helps!
P.S. Love Solange’s new ‘do!

Call me crazy. Ridicule my taste, style & judgment. Whatever; in this instance, I don’t care. I am insanely haunted by this (admittedly) utterly impractical shoe. I have absolutely no occasion, outfit, or excuse to wear these. But, sometimes there is no conscious rationale behind our attraction to a particular shoe. So fine, I’m irrational. I think I can deal with that.
Considering the ever-increasing prices of designer shoes, Moschino’s visual pun on shoe-bling and pricey styles falls more toward art than utility. I love it. What an apt commentary on the amounts we shoe-obsessed women can be convinced to pay for a beautiful shoe-crush. This shoe is such a great bit of tongue-in-cheek irony that I would love to own it just to but it on display in its own little curio nook. It would be fun to add a hint of self-mockery to my decor – particularly since my little shoe-obsession is no secret to most of those who know me.
And, unless I am mistaken, art may be the only wise way to purchase this particuler “last pair” at Overstock; someone has apparently neglected to note the shoe size in the item description.
Last Summer, I fell in mad, unreasoning lust with this shoe:
The Moschino Rainbow T-Strap Sandal. Originally retailing at about the $400-ish mark, I reluctantly walked away from these due to a tight budget when it fell no lower than $200 at the Nordie’s Half-Yearly Clearance racks. Sigh.
This was definitely one of those cases of non-buyer’s remorse.
But look. Hurray!
I just ran into an obviously Moschino-inspired, and decidedly in-stock, substitution:
Sure, it trends a bit toward Cute with the shorter 3-1/4 inch kittenish heel and matte finish while the Moschino was more of a Smokin’ 4-inch Slim-n-Sexy Patent Party Heel. But, it has maintained that essential POP of Rainbow-Brite color that makes it a wonderfully upbeat shoe to brighten up any (and every) summer-in-blue jeans outfit or casual sundress.
