OK, friends, I have lots of interesting shoes to share from the NYC runways, so here goes.
We start before the jump with this one from Preen, which I put here, not because I like it or want to wear it or think it would be comfortable, but because it answers the question What would it look like if LEGOs and doilies and bikers had a baby and it took the form of footwear? And since that’s a question I just know you were all asking yourselves, I didn’t want to keep the answer from you one second longer.
And I will give you this one, too, from the Carolina Herrera show, because rarely have I seen a shoe that looks THIS painful to wear.
Now follow along after the cut for many more.
I’ve been meaning to write about these for awhile. Honestly, how could I not?

Nicholas Kirkwood is a shoe genius. And when he does a collaboration, it’s almost always drool-worthy. On the runway, these shoes he designed for Erdem were simply breathtaking.
The overall Spring 2011 Erdem runway was full of ethereal laces, layered embroidery and vibrant swathes of vivid colors with blended, water-color effects. Whether in youthful mini dresses or floating maxi dresses, the entire collection exuded femininity, movement, and elegant whimsy*.

You know that little Mary Jane obsession I have? Thanks to Miu Miu, it just got a little worse. Okay, it just got a lot worse. But can you blame me? I mean, look at these shoes! These are Miu Miu’s Bow Front Mary Janes ($595 at Barneys), and I think they might also be an aphrodisiac. Certainly they have to be secretly evil and diabolical, because they are calling me through the internet and trying to tempt me into spending money on them right this second.
In the first place, pink and black has recently become my very favorite color combination. I go mad for it. My bedroom is pink and black, my purse is pink and black, I dress in pink and black – you get the picture. (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.
Jason Wu showed his collection on Friday Sept 10. I was quite impressed. So far we have seen a lot of menswear – profession-wear influence on the runway. Jason’s clothing reflected this trend. I would wear every piece. I love the colors. I love the cut and shape of the clothing. The shoes were work appropriate and didn’t seem too high. I would wear every pair, in fact, I may save up for the pumps. Let’s look at the shoes and then at some of the clothing. (more…)
