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


Shine On

mcqueen-elvie.jpgI am so into this bag! It’s very Darth Vader-S&M don’t you think? Oooh, that actually sounds kinda creepy and geeky, but you get the idea. Anyway, it’s called the Elvie, it’s the handiwork of the fabulous Alexander McQueen. I love the structure and the hardware, it would so make my regular jeans and t-shirt kick ass!

This time of year really makes me want to buy a new bag (oh, who am I kidding I always want a new bag). I don’t often think ofYSL Tribute, quilted croc myself as a patent girl, but for some reason I seem to be digging the shiny this year. It just feels so crisp and polished, chic and sophisticated. I’m also in love with this YSL Tribute bag: gorgeous clean lines and the croc quilting is divine.

Lastly I’ll toss out the requisite MJ bag, this one’s the Christina. I’ve loved Marc Jacobs for ages, sometimes he hits it out of the park, other times it’s hard to imagine what was going on in that head of mj-christina.jpghis (oh, I guess we all know that by now). At any rate, I like the more refined quilting he’s got going on these days, a modern homage to the classic Chanel.

Oh, so many bags, so little money…and don’t even get me started on the Balenciagas, drool!!!
