Must-have suede mary janes

Posted by Sophie on Monday, September 27th, 2010

Envy Miu Miu no more!  As a platform addict, I find these Carvela Angelica Platform Mary Janes one of the most versatile, ever-so-chic, and timeless heels to own.  A perfect statement shoe without all the fuss.  Such a striking yet elegant pair, they will anchor the entire outfit, make you stand tall & feel confident.  Work it with jeans, a pencil skirt, shorts & tights… the sky is the limit!

Emma Roberts dressed in a black Marni dress and platform heels at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC on May 3rd, 2010.  I never get tired of such chic black heels… impossible!

Here are three fab options with budget in mind, each pair under $100.  These black mary-jane style heels look great with practically anything from skinny jeans to evening dresses.

Look for Less – YSL Tribute Mary Janes

Posted by Sophie on Friday, April 10th, 2009

YSL Tribute pumps were in huge demand for a couple of years and are still popular to this day.  Many celebs including Victoria Beckham, Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera,  & Jessica Simpson pay “tribute” to these darlings by continuing to rock these shoes.

Here is a suede version of a platform Mary Jane that originally retailed for $680.  There are some on sale now but not easy to get your hands on.  A perfect touch of shiny patent on a rich suede is amazingly fashionable!

Here, Kerry Washington enjoys her red pair of YSL Tributes in a magazine spread.  Yeah, you & I both would be dancing too if we were in these lovelies!

Here is a similar pair, in red, that is under $50 from  Go ahead and spice up whatever wardrobe you have with the Miss Me Women’s Nobu-8 Platform Pump.  I’m thinking of an all black ensemble… sheer black dress, tights, and a clutch… and lastly, a pop of red!   How striking would that be!
