Look for Less – Giuseppe Zanotti Lace Slingbacks

Posted by Sophie on Saturday, November 27th, 2010

Giuseppe Zanotti’s Lace Silk Peep-Toe Slingbacks will vamp up your little black dress or add feminine flair to a dull ensemble.  Retails for $650.

These GUESS Hondola heels are similar to the Giuseppe Zanotti’s version with a few exceptions being that the back part of the heel is covered, more exposed peep-toe, and a quite lower price of $98.95.  Wear them with everything from dresses to jeans to bring out your inner glam.

Most wanted – Derek Lam boots

Posted by Sophie on Saturday, November 13th, 2010

It’s cold out and I’m all about boots this season.  If you are a fan of chunky boots like me, these amazing boots from the Derek Lam Fall 2010 Collection will steal your heart.  Here are three pairs to covet (unless you have the means to splurge!).

The Ilka is available for $1290 at Barneys’ and both Cassandre & Daphnee are available at Saks for $890 & $790.  My favorite is Daphnee with a v-shaped collar.  That’s one seriously hot pair… I’m in luv.  BTW, free shipping on all orders at Barney’s.  For Saks, they are running free shipping on all orders now through Nov. 18th with code HOLIDAYS.  Happy shopping!

Love It or Hate It – Nina Ricci FW 09 Shoes

Posted by Sophie on Saturday, April 11th, 2009

I had to share some crazy shoes from the Nina Ricci Fall 2009 show…I’m glad to hear that there was no “model Trippin’“… I mean, just look at them!  Really!  I’m sure models had some practice before hitting the runway.  These shoes are even more outrageous than Victoria Beckham’s platforms by Antonio Berardi.

I wonder what’s the purpose of that tiny stiletto heel sticking out on the back?  Not to mention the sky-high platforms!  The scary height & odd design overpowers the rest of the fine detailing of the shoe.  So, get up on them, like stepping onto stairs… if you dare!

I find platforms very sexy… the normal(?) ones that is.  Check out these fab platform shoes right here!

Victoria Beckham Goes Heel-Less

Posted by Sophie on Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

Victoria Beckham gets lots of attention, not only with her mannish hair but with her shoes at the launch of the couple’s Beckham Signature fragrance collection at Macy’s in New York.  These $4000 heel-less heels(?) are designed by Antonio Berardi, with super high platforms and invisible 5 1/2 inch heels.

I really think you can pull off these platforms as Victoria Beckham did as long as you don’t walk much and be extra careful with them.  I don’t see them being too uncomfortable.  These shoes look more awkward than they probably actually feel.  Many seem to agree on how ugly the shoes are but I think they are intriguing.

Peep Toe Platform by Marni

Posted by Sophie on Sunday, August 31st, 2008

I really, really love these peep toe platforms from Marni. Very sexy and the tweed trim at the base is a perfect statement for this season. 100% leather with a wooden platform sole provides a chic look for autumn that will work for day or night.  A classy fall feel and wood is very IN this season. They go for about $650 at BrownsFashion
