When you think of feathers and shoes, you think of boudoir house slippers like these frilly Sophia Webster mules. There are so many more options than those, though. Feathers had a big showing at couture (most memorably at Chanel) so you can expect the trend to trickle down.
For the past few years, more and more women have incorporated brogues into their wardrobes, and now Stella has taken the popular style and elevated it even further – literally. This is one of those times when I get the idea in my head that I can pull off looks best left to others…
You wouldn’t think of canvas and oversized crystals as an equation for a chic sandal, but it’s not the first time Riccardo Tisci has worked shoe miracles (Making the Birkenstock pretty? No easy task!).
The higher the heel, the closer to god? Absolutely! Just don’t tell your chiropractor I said that (tip: Pilates and yoga strengthen your core and back, making heels easier to maneuver). I’ve been wearing them since I was 17. When I graduated from high school, I tossed my flats and never looked back. Pumps were a part of my daily uniform at USC and continue to be today.
With daintily thin straps and a 4.5-inch stiletto, it doesn’t get much sexier than this black Giuseppe sandal. Chain details are big this season, and I love that he went with delicate curb-chains to set off the velvety suede. Zanotti’s all about bold, gold details, and these are his best yet. That said, they’re definitely valet shoes. As in, park at valet, walk a few feet to your table, and head home!
