I love checking out the new fashions and shoe styles that appear on the various runways during so-called fashion week (which is what, at least a month long now as it moves from city to city?). One of the things that is both exciting and frustrating to me is seeing which items, and in what final variations, finally make it into the land of retail (and since I live 3-5 hours away from any major metro centers, online retailers in particular).
These ankle boots from Givenchy’s spring 2010 couture runway intrigue me. (more…)
Anna Sui is celebrating her 46th birthday today.
Anna was born on August 4, 1964 in Detroit, Michigan. She took an interest in fashion at a very young age and began clipping fashion-magazine pages and put them in a file she calls her Genius Files.
In 1981 she had some friends who made jewelry and were going to sell it at a trade show. Anna made five pieces of clothing and they asked her to share a booth with them. She got orders from Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s and was featured in an advertisement in The New York Times. Anna was working for a company called Glenora when the owner saw the ad. He asked, “Is this this girl on our payroll? Why does she have an ad in the Times?” He then told her she had to stop or he would fire her. She got fired. The rest is history. She laughs and says that starting a fashion line with $300 is a bad business plan. I would imagine so. (more…)
Every gal deserves to treat herself to at least one pair of completely fabulous, over-the-top, glamtastic indulgence shoes.
Today, these Diego Dolcini’s have my vote. Dripping with crystals, these opulent pumps will turn heads everytime you wear them. Instant confidence from the ground up – just add your amazing self.

I am intrigued by the Camilla Skovgaard London A9007 ankle boot with the wrap-around ankle detail.
At first glance, they reminded me of the Balenciaga 2006 harness boots that were so popular (thanks in large part to Mary Kate Olson) – which spawned the wildly popular Sam Edelman ‘Zoe’ – a silhouette that has become a staple for that shoe brand, including a recent, studded variation.
Silver and gold, silver and gold
Ev’ryone wishes for silver and gold
How do you measure its worth?
Just by the pleasure it gives here on earth.
I know, it’s a little bit early for Christmas tunes, but these beauties nonetheless have me humming in their honor.
I have not been a big fan of the whole “more is better trend” in studded shoes….Or so I thought.
But these glittery, glamorous, Givenchy beauties have me outright drooling. These babies have me casting logic (and perhaps whatever good sense and semblance of good taste I currently posses) aside and indulging myself in a primal case of window-shopper’s shoe-lust.
