The Stella McCartney sandal featured in this installment of I Really Love my..shoe was first highlighted by our very own blogger, Shoesense, in a blog entitled The Naturals.
Kate Beckinsale was then identified by the incredibly talented Celebrity Shoe Spotter, Shoebunny, as wearing the Stella McCartneys earlier this month.
We’ve recently spotted Kate in other stylish outfits with the natural McCartney sandal and I gotta say, I didn’t like the chucky natural look before, but Kate is really making it quite attractive.
Ah, doesn’t she look cute with her hubby?
We were just discussing over in the forums the so-called ‘natural’ trend this spring–using earthy, organic, fiber-based materials to make shoes and other accessories. So, here are a few examples to jolt your inspiration:
Kors Salem Stretch Hemp Thongs, $160 at Intermixonline. This ‘back to nature’ sandal has a glam twist – the 1/4 inch platinum leather thong strap that you slip between your toes. The soles seem to be wood, which, while certainly keeping it ‘natural’, sounds pretty uncomfortable to me.
I happen to really, really like these d’Orsay cork pumps:
The Loeffler Randall Hazel Metallicized Cork Pumps are $355 at Intermixonline. For an added touch of glamor, they are flecked with gold metallic striations.
And finally, a little something from your original green designer:
The Stella McCartney Woven Straw Thong Sandals are a bit on the pricey side, of course ($595 at Intermix; who said it is so easy being green? think again!). They feature chunky heels and thick criss-cross straps at the upper foot.
Um…they all come in ‘natural’, but I guess that’s kind of obvious, right?
