The ‘Scarlett’ spiked sandals being offered by Sam Edelman immediately remind me of Ruthie Davis’ Spikette styles (and in a looser fashion, some of Louboutin’s & Rodarte’s past offerings). Let’s take a peek.

Also available in pewter grey at $200 via Piperlime.
If any of you are around little girls, you know Fancy Nancy. We have a book where she goes to a Butterfly Pavillion. In it she greets butterflies with bon jour, because they are so elegant, and French is the most elegant language she knows. This week R5granddaughter and I went to the Phoenix Botanical Garden’s butterfly display. We learned all sorts of things, like butterflies taste with their feet. They also get their vitamins and minerals through their feet when they land on the ground. Butterfly feet are also shaped like pretty shoes, platform sandals with peep toes. OK, I made that last part up. Even so, we had a fun day. We greeted each butterfly in French, but they must have been American because they didn’t answer back.
After the botanical garden we went to Nordstroms, which really spoke my language. We saw a few cuffed sandals with butterfly shaped cut-outs. Here are some butterfly and floral themed shoes.
Tracy Reese Bolero $295 at Nordstroms These are my current crush. I included these because the webbing makes me think of the patterns in butterfly wings. If they were available in plum ( menopause purple), I would have them in my closet as we speak.
Born Hydrangea $130 at Zappos Born has a ton of floral embellished sandals. They are super comfortable, and super cute. I have a pair of these shoes in silver. I wear them all the time.
See the butterfly in the left corner? Same colors. Monticello Shoes Rembrandt on sale $77
If there is a butterfly pavillion near you, I would encourage you to visit. We really enjoyed our time at our display.
Kenneth Cole will have 56 candles on his birthday cake today. I am fairly impressed with Kenneth Cole Productions. It was founded in 1982 by Kenneth Cole. Wanting to preview his line of shoes at Market Week at New York’s Hilton Hotel, but couldn’t afford the purchase of a hotel room to display his items, Kenneth asked about parking a trailer two blocks from the Hilton Hotel. When told that permits for trailers were only granted to utility and production companies, Cole changed the name of his company from Kenneth Cole Incorporated to Kenneth Cole Productions, then applied for a permit to film the full-length film, “The Birth of a Shoe Company”. In two and a half days, Kenneth Cole Productions sold forty thousand pairs of shoes, while chronicling the beginning of the company on film. Since then he hasn’t looked back.
He and his wife Maria Cuomo are very supportive of several charities and organizations and has been very public in his support of AIDS awareness and research since 1985. He is known for his socially concious and provocative ad campaigns from his “We all have AIDS” campaign to the current “We all walk in different shoes.” campaign.
Kenneth Cole shoes are mid priced and for their price, they are a fairly good buy. Here are some Kenneth Cole shoes for today.
And my favorite. Is this the best color in the world?
To celebrate I am going to put the above shoe in my Zappos shopping cart. I may even buy them. Does anyone else do that? Put a shoe in the cart and let them sit a while?
I love Rachel Zoe! Her personal style, and that of her famous clients, is well documented. I especially love her sky high heels worn with wide-leg pants! As a loyal fan of her Bravo reality show, The Rachel Zoe Project, I dream of her firing her current assistant Brad and instead hiring me (Rachel Zoe, if you’re reading this, I’m totally serious and a very hard worker!).
As documented on the last season of her reality show, Rachel Zoe is now working as a guest editor for Piperlime. I totally want to buy every single pair of shoes she’s picked out on Piperlime! Here are a few of my favorites!
