This summer the wellies almost transformed to the new UGGs. Especially in the UK where the “summer “ wheather left almost no other option.
Now they are everywhere in all possible colors and patterns, but seems like the classy shape was preserved. Not anymore, the designer eye of Marc Jacobs tells a different story – see for yourself!

If you like me review designer shoes collections for many hours each and every day inevitably will notice some very slight inclination from flats to the sporty flats.
Volcom, Billabong and Keds started first, but now they are everywhere. You might think that only the sporty ladies will shop for them, but I don’t think so, I predict that in not very distant future they will appear in a much more high couture feet.
So let’s see what’s in store.

I am sure you already suspect me of Keds addiction, and I am also sure you see why. As a girl I want the best when I pick clothing, shoes and accessories. But I also want comfort in my life, so I have chosen Keds for myself long time ago.
And from what I am going to show you you’ll see that style, luxury and comfort may go together.
Here is the latest collection from Keds, it comes with the emo “Rich, Luxurous, Velvet” and is result of the Nanette Lepore’s hard designer work. So enough talking, take a look below.

Rachel Zoe the fashion stylist for Nicole Richie, Lindsay Lohan, Mischa Barton, Kate Beckinsale, Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Garner, Paris Hilton and Keira Knightley revealed to Gap’s Piperlime the 5 must-haves in shoes for this fall. She recently started her collaboration with Gap.com and below are the first advices she gives to the Gap fans.
Rachel Zoe
Her picks are:
A timeless patent – Rachel advises if you are investing in one patent to make it black. It always says current and gives a dramatic effect.
The simply riding boot – It’s true classic “Every season they appear on the runway in some shape or form”. And Rachel loves them with leggins and an oversized sweater.
A stunning red shoe – They are the perfect way to punch up a little black dress. “Just don’t go crazy or you’ll look like Minnie Mouse. I mean, nothing against Minnie, I love her”
The fabulous flat – Think you need heels strut your stuff? Not anymore. “Designers have definitely figured out how to make flats fabulous and stylish” says Zoe.
A wild animal print – Takes things up a notch with animal print. “They add just the right amount of flash to a great pair of jeans and a tank.”
You could reach Zoe for style advice at askrachel@gap.com

Animal Instinct

15Oct07

All of our favourites included the animal detail in their fall collection. It is definitely a trend, and Marc Jacobs even boldly added eyes, ears and whiskers to his flats’ styles. Here is a selection from Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Stuart Weitzman & Kate Spade.
I am still thinking wether to embrace the “animals” but I have the strange feeling that at some point (the point when everyone is into them) will overhelm me.

A new sport-luxe accessory collection is already available on the official Nine West website.
The collection includes flats, sneakers, backpacks & hobos. They bet on the lila for their styles, and for me the color adds the needed luxury element. I insist on showing you the footwear part of the collection, the rest of the fine accessories is available here. The sneaker, by the way is very very stylish!

Here are the handbags, so lets talk about the shoes!
It’s like I never said it before that Mary Janes and booties are essential this fall. Most of the YSL Shoe collection is mary janes and booties. YSL however instead of changing colors and setting buttons, has other intentions – to change your platforms! It’s true though that the pumps are not affected.
I am not sure myself that I am still into the platforms, but when we are talking of YSL, its not about shoes and feet anymore – its about art.

If from my post earlier today you are under the impression that Frye are only making boots like that, now is the time to see the stylish face of this brand. Some shoe history for you to make my point. Frye are the oldest shoe company operating nowadays. Their boots have a long and colorful history, and as other brands like Burberry at some point they produced clothing and footwear for military needs. Although the demand for their military influenced styles was very strong, their styles also made their way to the catwalk, and for many they symbolize the American style in fashion boots. And this is not only my opinion its also Manolo’s.
So, back to fall 2007. Their latest designs are already online, and below are my picks. Military catwalk? I don’t think so.

It’s not a secret anymore – it’s all about bootines, it’s all about gray, and now there is one more addition – the buttons.
What about a fair combination of the above 3? Here they are, the top notch styles this fall.
Meet NA NA, BC Footwear & Vince Camuto.
First the NA NA Helga Bootine as this pair is definitely the most spectacular one.

SimplySoles revealed what is the Helloween potion for their costumers, and are asking you, what is yours?
Here is the people’s choice, so lets take a look into the top flats, wedges, pumps & boots.
Flats – seems like the most preferrable pair of flats is Reese by Tory Burch (price tag $225.00).

Wedges – the top choice amongst the wedges is this pair named Ranya by Delman, by the way it’ my pick from SimplySoles as well (price tag $295.00).

Pumps – Claudia Cuiti. Well, at least here there are no suprises. There are two things about Claudia that will always set her in the top3 elegant designs – her family fashion history and being Italian. So here it is the synonym for elegance – Glory by Claudia Cuiti (price tag $290.00).

And of course – Boots. Don’t get me wrong, I love Frye, but this pair top pick? With a price tag of $400.00?

Nordstrom announced we can now shop their most wanted items collection with free shipping.
I have one “personal collection” myself and decided to introduce it to you. You might have already noticed that so far BCBGMaxAzria haven’t been reviewed in the blog. It is absolutely not intentially.
BCBGMaxAzria made great presence on New York Fashion week as you can see in this video, as well as literally in all fashion events this year. So now is the moment to take a closer look.
BCBG MaxAzria Antil Flats
The square-toe flat is something new in the flats world. And if you check below you will see that same pattern applied to the Patent Pumps. The other “thing” in the pair is the asymmetrical bow that tops the square-toe. So the story how I see it, is that Max Azria is not into the classics right now. And about the bronze (aka new gold, aka new-new black) I said everything already. Excellent pair, labeled online as “Salon Shoes”.

BCBG MaxAzria ‘Dida’ Patent Pump
Well, these are the “ones below” with the square-toe. Patent leather pumps with quilted stitching sparks, but the first thing you will see of course will be the bow, same as on the flats. The new thing is the metal detailing on heel. They’re also “Salon Shoes”.

BCBG MaxAzria ‘Nikkas 2’ Bootie
Now hold on! Do you really think that the wool flannel shapes you saw here is something mistake. I strongly doubt. Either Marc Jacobs and Max Azria had a quick coffee together to decide who will be the first to design a bootie with an wool flannel, or this is a trend. A knotted bow with goldtone tips on patent leather.

These is for Max Azria in my perspective. There are over 50 designers eligible for the Nordstrom’s offer so go ahead and give us your favorite.

Its very difficult for everyone to keep up with anything in this hectic world. That’s why it occurred to me this new updates I could give to you on a daily basis, e.g. what is the designer shoes world today.
So here is my first post on the subject:
FFANY – More than 100,000 pairs of shoes will be on a charitable shoe sale on 17 Oct, from 19:00 to 22:00 organised by the Fashion Footwear Association of New York. The shoes will be on sale at half-price. Alternatively you can visit http://www.qvc.com for additional daily styles.
Fashion Weekend Manchester – If you are visiting (or of course living in) Manchester, this weekend you can spare some quality time at Fashion Week Manchester, supported by Topshop. There you can visit the Topsop Style Advisor for Topshop goodies, trendy advice or … champagne.

The title says it clear enough – there are shoes for inspiration, but we also need shoes for our daily lives. The best option of course is to find shoes that are both inspirational and afforable (because I don’t know about you, but I can hardly limit my closet needs to 2-3 pairs per season). Otherwise as Carrie Bradshaw said in the SATC “I am literally the woman who’s living in her shoe”. You got the point, there is no need for more details why affordable is good.
One of the brands I like when I want to buy shoes a pair of shoes in its 3 available colors is forever21. I have visited their website yesterday, and once more was happy to see so many perfect designs that I can afford.
These are the once I chose. I’d be happy to see what your picks would be.

Pedro Garcia is one of the designers I would add to the category “Verrry Sexy” immediately.
What I like the most about his shoe designs are the pointed toes. If you see a pump that screams SEXY you can be sure its his design.

I already told you what I think of ankle ties shoes – if you are into a particular pair, make sure the footbed is flexible.
There is other trendy solution though. Ribbons also invade with the same pace as ankle ties. Hollywould is brand that already proved itself being stylish with –instantly-catching-the-eye-shoes.

OK, enough is enough, now lets go back to High Heel Street. New arrivals are already online from the above designers’ collections and seems like it will be High Heel Winter.
Traditions are tradiotions and Stuart Weitzman knows how to follow them. He’ll take care of your style and feet this season with his so famous cork, vinyl, lucite, wallpaper, and 24-karat gold materials and classic. Made in Spain as always.

Simplicity is everything. Maybe the designer shoes area is not the perfect proof to that, but Simple Shoes have put a good start. There is no need to say (or maybe there is, uh) that their shoes are eco-friendly.
I like the boots the most, they could be 2007/2008’s UGGs who knows?

The ballet flats evolved. Mary Janes seem like evolved too – with ties. It is not something totally new of course, each of us has a pair of shoes with ankle tie, but its new for the flats and for the Mary Janes.

I am personally comfortable with this, just to give you one piece of advice. I received as a gift few months ago not very expensive pair of flats with ankle tie (I am not telling what the brand is), and I never managed to wear them. The reason is that they were so very uncomfortable that you can’t even imagine. And they were uncomfortable because of the firm as a stone sole, and as my foot was tied to it I had just two options either walk as a duck (without rising my feet off the ground) or desperately trying to do so and end up with horrible blisters.

So my advice is, when you buy a shoe with a tie, make sure that the sole is flexible enough to let you walk.

The UGG phenomenon is back. This time what they offer (obviously again influenced by the UK muddy wheather) is a hybrid between a classis UGG style & colorful welly. Other line in their boots fall collection is (surprise) knitted UGG!
Well, girls, I can see it coming … knitted wellies … at least our feet will rest for sure.

Now that we know what Marc Jacobs is capable of, lets take a look what else he has in the closet.
The Mary Janes are no surprise, but Mary Jane & Boots in combo? Hmm … that’s new.
He also has inclination to wellies (which is understandable after the rainy summer here in the UK, hence the wellies invasion).
His fall collection also includes ready-to-wear, handbags, “small leather goods”, watches, sunglasses and accessories.
