When you are ready to shop, as in, have the allotted money burning a hole in your wallet, inspiration comes like a lightening storm. I walked in a gallery and this wall of ceramic cubes actually made that heaven sound effect, speaking to me, telling me that it was all the important colors and prints … Continue reading “Your Fall Wardrobe Inspiration Is Written on the Wall”
‘Tis the season of the espadrille! With acutely-modern metallic leather Guccis and pompom-accented Aquazzuras, it’s easy to forget just how long this shoe has been around. The style dates back 4,000 years. Some of its best iterations come from Pyrenean Catalonia (Spain – France) and the Occitania region, where the footwear has been made since the 14th century. While the term “espadrille” is French, it has roots in the Catalan language, deriving its meaning from espart, a tough Mediterranean grass used to make rope. Clearly, today’s designers have a rich history to draw upon, and they’ve immersed themselves in it to create some of the most gorgeous espadrilles yet. Whether you like yours embroidered or crafted from classic canvas, flat or towering, inexpensive or investment-worthy, there’s no shortage of shoes to pick up for summer!
If you haven’t used post-spring cleaning closet restocking as an excuse to buy new shoes yet, then I have another reason for you: the latest trends. Block heels from the likes of Mansur Gavriel, metallics via laser-cut Alaïas, and most prominently, lace-up shoes that climb like vines along your ankles are the styles at the top of every fashion girl’s shopping list this season, and NET-A-PORTER has them all. Put those winter boots away until next year and indulge in my new favorite shoes below…
There is no other color as polarizing as pink. While many women love it (Barbie, Elle Woods, and myself included!), others prefer more neutral hues. Even the women who wear LBDs every day, never thinking of slipping on frilly pink dresses, find themselves longing for a flash of the tint here and there, though. And whether in pastel patent, fuchsia PVC, or blush glitter, these girly shoes are just the right amount of pink to feed that craving.
Every now and then, a collaboration that sounds almost too good to be true comes around. So goes the news of the union between possibly the most classic shoe designer of all time and the most stylish (and rebellious) pop star of our time: Manolo Blahnik x Rihanna. Their Denim Desserts collection consists of six styles featuring artisan-stitched embroidery inspired by Rihanna’s henna hand tattoos, as well as sequins and, of course, plenty of sex appeal.
There’s nothing like a little escape come this time of year, and the next best thing to going off on a tropical getaway with a suitcase full of brand-new resort wear is looking ahead to spring. Spring’s best new shoes have already hit stores, and I’m ready to get a jump-start stocking up. From in-your-face floral appliqués to nautical accents to majorly-elevated flats, there are plenty of reasons to get excited on the early side.
Yes, I know that we’re in the midst of the year’s coldest weather, and unless you have a tropical getaway planned, buying sandals is just a reminder that you won’t be able to wear any for months; but allow yourself to be seduced by the promise of a new spring wardrobe, distinguished by crystals as turquoise as the sea, ankle straps strong enough to get you through hours of dancing, and savings of up to 80% off from NET-A-PORTERicon! Deals like these will melt your sartorial ennui away in no time…
