Shoes of September 2004

Charlotte Russe


Angie and I went shopping on Saturday and we ended up in Charlotte Russe. We both loved these shoes, though neither of us bought them. The heel, which doesn't look that high in this picture, is actually pretty towering. The color combo is one of my favorites, and Angie's too, the chocolate brown and pink. I love that the slingback is pink. The detail that made me hesitate to buy them is the pink bow. It's just a little too...well...bow-y. What can I say, I'm not a bow girl. Angie didn't mind the bow but was being good and not spending the money. Two different excuses, same result. I would have worn them with a curve-hugging jean skirt and a pink top.

My friend Angie was very excited to show me these. And I admit they're pretty cool. I really like the warm gray suede, not a common shoe color. The toes are square but only at the tip, rounding down before the tip. And as ever I love an open toe and an ankle strap. What really makes them unique, though, is the thick but not too wedgy heel and the ribbon details. The combination of colors on the ribbons that run down the toe and up the back, brown and blue on the gray, is interesting and a nice contrast. If I had made them, I think I would have left out the zippers, which I think is one detail too much. But aside from that, I think they're great. And Angie loves them. She was wearing jeans when she put them on and that looked good. I think I'd wear them with denim capris and a baby blue marilyn top.

Who would have thought a pink shoe with a bow could look so adult and sophisticated? It helps that it's not a baby pink but a deep, hotter pink. And the heel is thin and round and tall enough to be serious. And even though there is a bow, it's so thin and there's something sort of Japanese about it. I'd wear these with a white and pink flowered A-line skirt and silk tank top.

Ok, these are too cutesy for me to actually wear, but they're pretty great. It's the big bold glittery star on the top that makes them too cutesy but for a girl with a love of stars they're almost irresistible. The high working-girl heel helps sharpen them up a little. And I do love the straps that you twist and tie around the ankles with stars hanging off them. If I did give in to my baser instincts and buy these, I would wear them with a slinky black skirt with subtle sparkles in it and a sheer black top, maybe with a silver bra underneath.

A better design from Kate. They also have the thick heel of the previous design, which I expect would be more comfortable but is less attractive than a thinner heel. But they have a nice pointed toe that rounds out just at the end. And I love the little tie in front around the ankle. Maybe it's just the nearing of that special time of year, but I feel like there's something a little witchy about them. Not the warty old witchy of days gone by but the sexy new witchy of the present day "Charmed" world. I'd wear these with lots of black, some cleavage, and a spellbinding twinkle in my eye.
