All Eyes Below [Fall 08 Shoe Trend: DARING, SAUCY, STRONG]
Bye, bye to big bags, it’s time to demonstrate your love for shoes (and that’s not asking a lot of you). Vibrant hues from designer palettes with unexpected and cheeky details make for the ultimate fall 08 shoe. Dior does shoes with mighty impact, like the shocking pink Dior 61 Slingbacks that are for preorder ($675.00) at Saks Fifth Avenue.
I love the Christian Louboutin Drapinnight Red Satin Platform evening shoes ($865.00) at Barneys New York in every way possible. If you want the magnificent Manolo Blahnik Something Blue Satin Pumps ($945.00) you can it exclusively at Bergdorf Goodman. The Blahnik’s are more sensible than the two previous selections, but it still keeps with this fashionable trend.
Looking at how immaculately beautiful these are with their bright blue color you might be tempted to wear only these shoes. But don’t forget the rest of your wardrobe or you’ll be showing off your shoes in jail (public nudity is frowned upon, or so I’ve heard).
Anthropologie has very well-priced (read: rather friendly for your wallet) Tracey Reese Long Stem T-Straps ($278.00) that are adorned with patent leather roses. When I saw them I started humming the song ‘I Could Have Danced All Night’ from the Audrey Hepburn movie My Fair Lady. Since I’m hoping you’ve seen that movie, I’m going to recommend this YouTube Clip of the same song, as sung by Julie Andrews, Richard Burton, and more.
For those who love Audrey Hepburn, try listening to this video of Frank Sinatra singing the song, while a slideshow of Hepburn pictures appear. Doesn’t hearing it make you want to put on a tiny black dress, your most decadent red heels, and go out on the town with your special man to twirl you around and say things you’ve always imagined Cary Grant saying to you? Well, that’s how I feel.
Whether you dream of Cary Grant, Johnny Depp, or Chase Crawford (no, I couldn’t think of another C-named handsome man, but what’s wrong with Depp?), I’m betting you’ll love these shoes.
