a week in shoes

November 7, 2007

Well, maybe not in reality, but here are a dreamy selection of shoes that, if I owned them, would take me through the week:


These seem like a good pair to start off the week, functional yet whimsical. Marc Jacobs can always be called upon for a beginning of the week shoe crisis.

TUESDAY: loefflerrflatwedgeboot.jpgFlat boots from Loeffler Randall are just the thing to for the inevitable errands you’ll have to run that didn’t get done yesterday.

WEDNESDAY: louboutinleopardwedge.jpgGive your day (and your legs) a little lift in these leopard wedges form Christian Louboutin, the man knows what he’s doing, enough said.

THURSDAY: Stella McCartney Platform PumpAfter work cocktails anyone? Even though you’re tired, these shocking pink Stella McCartney pumps will have you dancing out the office doors and into the corner pub.

FRIDAY: margiela.jpgHot date with the new guy from the 7th floor? Show him your sophisticated side with these gorgeous covered wedge pumps from Martin Margiela – you know after the third martini they’ll be the only classy thing about you…

SATURDAY: glittershoe.jpg  Sure, these Christian Louboutin glitter prive platforms are a bit tacky, but they’d be great for a hot night on the town with the girls.

SUNDAY: These Chloe boots would jazz up any lazy Sunday afternoon stroll through the park or brunch with friends to discuss naughty things that happened in those Louboutins!chloe-boots.jpg


Coveted item of the day

Ahh, Balenciaga…

As alluded to previously, I diamond-heart.jpg Balenciaga bags. I can’t quite remember when this love affair started, but it was first consummated in about 2003 with this beauty: img_0752.jpg

Although there is the occasional item of clothing that leaves me drooling,fall 07 shoes there are quite a few that give me pause… Though if you can get away with this C3PO look, more power to you. It’s also hard to imagine on which occasion these shoes would come in handy, unless you were like, I don’t know, Rainbow Brite’s crunchy-fashionista cousin.

At any rate, my love for their yummy bags has not diminished, therefore, here are a few of the current ones that I’ve been dreaming of…

Also love the round bag in Pine from Fall 2007.


Love the shape, love the color, love the hardware!

B blue GGH

This color is so rich and it would go with everything I own, but not as wild about the style (and as we know I already have a blue one, can”t be too crazy now, can I?!)

And then, ehem, there’s my new baby:


Yeah, I did it and I couldn’t be happier. It holds everything – computer, book, and all the myriad crap that I accumulate and lug around all over the city – and I wonder why I have neck and back problems!
