Shoes, Glorious Shoes!

All right my pretties, I know, I know. You've been starving for some fashion goodies. Today the subject is shoes. Usually I like to focus on fashion for the everyday girl-about-town, but today I was on the hunt for beautiful shoes, those that are objets d'art in their own right. Such as...




These lovely things by Marc Jacobs. I love unusual shapes, and these have it. Patent leather is going to be huge this fall, and while I'm not really a fan, I'd get over it for a pair of these babies.



On a more affordable tip, meet the "Mary Kate," my namesake pump! I love how the suede runs over the platform, love the wine color, love the chunky roundness of it. So far it's my must-have shoe for fall, despite its semi-impracticality. $74.95.



Kate Spade "Angie" mules weren't $195, I'd be all over them, too. I used to think I'd never find a cute mary jane that didn't scream "Brooklyn book editor" (no offense to any of that species who might be reading, of course) but these just might be them. Sleek, no?



These YSL wedges, at $590, are even further out of my price range, but this is the kind of shoe that makes me want to dress in all black so everyone has to acknowledge the fabulousness of the shoes. Love the color blocking, and I think maybe it's a rule that everyone must own suede footwear this fall.



Yep, suede. With a splash of color. Hi Pucci! I love you! Please send me your wedge pumps (gratis, as I can't afford the $435 price tag)....



...or maybe your lovely high boots ($950)...



...or even these funky leather ones. I think I might heart those the most, actually. What? You don't give away $750 boots to upstart fashion bloggers? Well, WHY NOT? Don't you know we're a thriving community?



I'm also noticing a lot of leopard print among the designer offerings. Which makes me glad that if I can't have these truly special Giuseppe Zanotti wedges, $495, at least I picked up a pair of leopard-print pumps at the clothing and accessories swap I organized with a few friends a while back. Those were about four inches high, too. (Yes, I'm a glutton for punishment.)



These Christian Louboutin mohair pumps are so incredible. They will never be mine, at $710. But a girl can gaze.



I'm also enjoying the thought of these Kate Spade feather flats, $272. What's next? Are we going to see shoes with little googly eyes all over them? Exquisitely arts-and-crafted shoes for all!



Finally, these cute slingbacks are by Steve Madden, they're a bright, candy-colored green, and they've got a big button closure. What more do you need? $99.95 (frankly a bit much) is all.

Tune in tomorrow for a frightening display of the ugliest things you could possibly put on your feet, this side of Crocs. Toodles!

Love all the toe-peep ones. But, I'd have to see anything fuzzy, furry or feathery in real life.

Oh, man! I just bought kitten heels. Figures. The cost (10 bucks) should've tipped me off.

love the kate spades, but c'mon, wouldn't they be destroyed in about a week if ya actually walked around the city? that's the number one reason I have a hard time lovin' expensive everyday shoes, even if they look great. I just know I'm gonna ruin 'em in no time flat.
