Shoes of February 2001

These are some darned cute sandals. I love the heel which has a kind of old-fashioned Chinese shoe feel to it. The thin straps make the appearance a little more delicate in relation to the thick heel. I think I'd like them more without the flower, but it does add a nice springy touch.

Kate Spade

I actually got to go into a Kate Spade store yesterday, while I was shopping in Union Square with my mom. I dragged her in so I could see the beautiful shoes in person. And they were. Beautiful. These dotted shoes are great, really fun and kicky. They'd be great for a lawn party (does anyone still have those?) or a bar-b-q of the more upscale variety. They're just so cute and springy, I would love to see them with a little white sleeveless dress and a wide-brimmed red hat.

The essence of elegance. Perfect black slingbacks.

These are just beautiful, warm-looking shoes. By warm I don't mean they'd keep your feet from getting cold, obviously, as they would be quite drafty. But they just have a warm feeling to them, with the soft brown and camel colors and the wooly fabric and leather. I would wear these with a 40's style dress and a long brown leather coat. Very cozy.

I'm feeling kind of springy today, as the sun has come out and the rain washed everything clean. So here are some springy slides. They have a great print, with lots of pink. The style itself is very nice and very simple. I would wear these with a sleeveless white dress and a big straw hat.

My "turning 30" shoes

These were the shoes I wore at my 30th birthday party. I thought they were fabulous and outrageous and exactly the look I wanted when staring the beginning of my 30's in the face. Paired with a "Diva" t-shirt and bright red lipstick, I told my sister, "This is how I want to enter my 30's." The shoes were surprisingly comfortable, despite the fairly high heel and I got many compliments on their unusual style, with a very wide sole and the very rounded lines. Nothing on this shoe is sharp or square. And the color is fabulous, a dark shiny red. (I got these at Ross for $10!)

These are simply gorgeous slingbacks. The shape of the heel is beautiful, with a curve on the inside. The shoe's shape is lovely with the extra strap on the side. But it's the design on the shoe that really makes this a unique and stunning item, the vibrant colors, the clever shapes of the flowers, and the way the design hugs artistically to the curves of the shoe. I like the bag, too.

I just love the color of these shoes. They're a fantastic turquoise with an interesting texture. The heel is also cool, with the turquoise coming through at the bottom. I also love a square toe, which is stylish while giving the toes room to wiggle. The ankle strap is a great extra touch. This is a fabulous summer shoe.

This pair is my most recent purchase, bought while walking the streets of the city after a depressing movie, "House of Mirth." I can't think of a more inaccurately titled film. I wandered into a Shoe Pavillion and there they were. They cheered me up in an instant. The heel is rather taller than I usually go for, but there's some platform to the sole so they're not quite as high as they seem. The heel has a great curve to it and the shoe itself has a very 40's feel, which I love. They had several other colors, including the red I almost bought instead. I imagine swing dancing in these shoes or saying goodbye to one's boyfriend as he goes off to war. They cry out for silk stockings with a seam up the back.

Valentine Shoes
These were my "just broke up with my boyfriend" shoes, as they were so out of character for me at the time. But I think they're rather tame now. I still love them, though.

I'm not philosophical about these shoes, but they are very lovely red suede mules. Can't beat that.

Kate Spade

On a cold day like today, these Austrian wool pumps seem like the perfect shoe. A beautifully tailored wool suit, a long camel hair overcoat, and these shoes--the very picture of winter style. I love the slingbacks, too, which have a cuter heel. They would be great with a vintage black wool dress and a black faux fur-collared jacket. Dreamy...
Hmm, I think I'll go shopping right now...

These are the cutest shoes going. Perfect slingback style with a well-shaped heel. The colors and pattern are great. If it were my design, I'd lose the little tie, but they're gorgeous regardless. These shoes are a statement in and of themselves. I imagine these shoes going to a cocktail party and being the center of attention.

These shoes are all about shape. The curves are stunning; the overall apearance of the shoe is very womanly. A pink inner sole adds an extra dash of femininity. Lovely, lovely shoes.
