Isabel Marant is a woman who knows how to design a trend-setting shoe. Honestly, was there any brand out there that didn’t copy her wedge sneaker? This year, she’s ready to take things down a notch, though, or at least down a heel.
One of my favorite things to do in Florence is shop at uniquely Florentine boutiques like the new Aquazzura store at the Palazzo Corsini. Besides the concept space serving as the brand’s headquarters and flagship, it’s located in a gorgeous, historical building built by the Medicis in the 15th century that was later bought by Maria Machiavelli.
Now is as much the time to stock up on cute wedges as it is the time to collect winter coats. Why? Because you should be leaving those bulky jackets behind and hopping on a cruise! When I know I have a seafaring adventure on the horizon, the first thing I shop for is the perfect wedge.
Feeling like things look a little dull now that holiday festivities are on their last leg? There’s nothing like the perky colors of the rainbow to enliven your wardrobe, and there’s nothing like a great new pair of shoes to make you see things from a whole new angle.
If there is one thing you simply must have for the holiday season, it’s sparkly, glittery shoes to show off your festive spirit. It’s amazing what a gorgeous pair of heels can do for your psyche during the season of extreme ups and downs (your weight included!), so when it comes to investing, a fresh favorite pair of shoes is your best bet.
Last night, I attended my first Footwear News Achievement Awards gala, which for a Shoe Snob is like being a kid in a candy store! I was there to celebrate SJP, winner of “Launch of the Year” for her huge-hit shoe line, SJP by Sarah Jessica Parkericon.
