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. At least I know that about myself and can plan out my life accordingly, but Fashion Week is the exception. The heels had to come out, and I had to prepare to be in them for 14 hours a day.
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!).
This is the most exquisite line of shoes I’ve seen in a long time. Maison des Talons designer Susanne Villiger’s awe-inspiring accents are like nothing you’ve seen before. I borrowed the Swarovski-encrusted Les Tinettes for Fashion Week (the only time I’m grateful to be a runway sample size 10!) and wore them to the Socialyte Blogger Awards.
Lenny Kravitz stepped out for the NYC premiere of his new film The Butler with two notable accessories – actress Cicely Tyson on his arm (he didn’t leave her side the whole carpet – so sweet) and a pair of killer Spring/Summer 2013 Louboutins.
