The weather has been unseasonably warm in New York the past week, and nothing makes me feel like spring like beautiful bright shoes. Can’t you just see yourself in your classic Burberry trench, wearing these bright blue Manolo Blahnik ‘BB’ babies and dancing through sprinkles of rain like Singin the Rain, beautiful as Catherine Deneuve in Les Parapluies de Cherbourg? They are also available in pink (via Nordstrom), purple (via Saks), yellow, and green (via Saks).
In the background, the Sex and the City wedding shoe, the Hangisi, has also been updated in bright new shades. It can be difficult to find the new shades online. I was able to locate a green one at Barneys, a hot pink version at Shop Savannahs, the pale pink (via Neimans) , and Saks carries the blue satin version.
It may be 4.25-inch heel, but that Hangisi is so stunning, so timeless and so trendy in its new colors, I know it will be flying off the shelves … or sofa chair, as this display would have it.

It’s finally Friday! Are you ready to have a fun filled weekend or kick off the weekend early? If not, my goal is to get your engines revved up with these vintage auto-inspired Prada sandals, complete with tail lights and flames. Okay, Prada may not necessarily have me kicking my heels into high gear (more like neutral) due to the low versatility and seriousness factor for these shoes, but they are certainly fun shoes to look at. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
Pre-order Prada’s spring auto inspired shoes at Nordstrom; Prices range from $590 – $990

This loafer really caught my eye while I was out shopping with friends. It’s feminine, comfortable, and just a little showy with the gold panels.
Made with white and pink nubuck, contrast vintage gold panels, and beige leather soles, this is a 100% leather shoe.

If the 2012 Oscars had an award for best bridal look, I would like to give it to Gwyneth Paltrow. This white Tom Ford dress and cape are simply stunning and makes me want to renew my vows all over again. I like that the dress is conservative in terms of how much skin is exposed yet the cut is very sleek, clean, and modern. The cape is also a daring choice to aware of the red carpet (or alter for the bride), but so practical if the weather is nippy outside. Gwyneth paired the dress with glittery gold Koko shoes by Jimmy Choo (the suede version is available for pre-order at Nordstroms for $1150. Tell me, what did you think about this look?
