It looks like Alaïa might have some competition in the laser-cutting department! From a distance these Kirkwoods seem as if they might be constructed from sweetly scalloped lace or cork, but closer inspection reveals luxe, nude leather. The spiky metal heel and pointed toe make for a shoe that’s somewhat different from your usual, light spring fair, and I mean that in the best way.
The Nicholas Kirkwood Fall/Winter 2014 collection gets straight to the point. A sleek pointed toe defines almost every shoe in the collection from snakeskin heels to flat boots.
Always wanted to be the star of a glamorous style shoot? Fashion photographer Tommy Ton is auctioning off a personal session in NYC (value: $30,000), and the funds raised are going to a couple of truly great causes!
I may have survived fashion week, but my feet didn’t. I do like to complain about shoe discomfort. Like my husband has said again and again, “You are at the comfort stage of life.” Fine, I accept that.

Better off red? Absolutely! When stocking up on essentials for fall, don’t overlook the color of desire, passion, and strength. Sure, it’s probably the most aggressive shade in the spectrum, but that’s a good thing. More importantly, red is the ultimate anti-neutral neutral. It’s as bold as colors come, yet it goes with everything.
It’s always disappointing when the time comes to store your chic summer sandals away for another year. Fill that void by indulging in a slew of stylish winter boots! Just don’t let yourself get carried away with buying ones that are all for the same purpose or occasion.
