SJP Collection Launch at Nordstrom: Sarah Jessica Parker’s Latest Shoe-In

When Carrie met Manolo, it was on-screen magic. When Sarah Jessica met George, it was real-life retail magic. Meet the SJP Collection, currently sold exclusively at Nordstrom. I’ve seen my fair share of celebrity line launches, none as well-received as the response Ms. Parker just enjoyed.

Paul Andrew Fall 2014 Collection: A Heeling Touch

Many like to reference Paul Andrew, my number-one shoe designer to watch, as the “new Manolo,” but I see him in a class all his own. With an eye both timeless and refined, he projects a genuinely modern brand of elegance. After taking in his Fall 2014 collection, I can’t get enough

Fall into Gucci: Shoes for Every Occasion

Gucci’s fall shoes are gorgeous, so much so that this could be one-stop shopping for the season’s essentials. They’re very well made, and while not Frugal Snob friendly, the shoes are priced better than those from other established brands (except for the python booties – they also come in leathericon for only $895, though!).

Design through the Decades: The 1990s

When it comes to shoes, I definitely peaked in the ‘90s – partly because the platforms were so high! On MTV Asia, I would interview celebs like the Spice Girls, all of us sporting those same crazy shoes.
