Archive for the ‘Fall 2010 Shoes’ Category
I love intricate or carved heel details on shoes. So, it shouldn’t be much of a surprise that I’ve been pining over Casadei’s 2010 fall line of boots & pumps with their delightfully-geometric, devilishly high, drop-dead gorgeous heels.

I mean, look at these! What’s not to love?
It definitely feels like winter around here. Sure, it’s still officially fall according to my wall calendar. But, when I wake up to snow flurries, I know that winter has firmly taken over and fall has sadly become a mere technicality. (more…)
Last week I spent two whirlwind days on a press trip to the corporate HQ for Marshalls and TJMaxx located in Framington, Massachussetts. I don’t often write about discount stores because the stock can vary significantly from day to day as well as from store to store. But, since I was able to snap a few pictures of the shoe department of the flagship Marshalls store, I am sharing those with you today.
(Christopher Kane embroidered lace-up Ghillie boots)
Boots very similar to this retail version were shown on the Christopher Kane (London) runway for his Fall 2010 show. Sexy and romantic, Ghillie-laced heels were the shoe of choice for this show. I am happy to let our readers know that these shortened, ankle-boot variants (‘Giuseppe Zanotti for Christopher Kane’) are available now via Net-a-porter and Luisa via Roma for the small pittance of $1360-$1428. While not exactly lunch money, I can at least dream of scoring a pair of these at clearance prices or post-season overstock sales.
You may remember these boots from the Alexander McQueen Fall 2010 runway show which ran just after his unfortunate suicide earlier this year.
As part of the last show to be subject to Mr. McQueen’s direct approval, I expect these will be both coveted and collectible.
And, at a hefty $4195 price tag, these will be a glamorous splurge for those shoe-fanatics who can afford such an indulgence…and yes, I do regret that I can’t be one of them.
Here’s a fond wish that at least one museum’s fashion collection get’s a pair of these for the rest of us to enjoy viewing as well.
