SHOE OF THE DAY! Charlotte Olympia

Sunday evening quick shoe of the day here for you! It’s time to get into some resort collections and who better than Charlotte Olympia to start with. An instant staple in every shoe connoisseurs wardrobe Charlotte Olympia has taken lust to a whole new level. One of my favorite picks for resort is this basic nude slingback with the classic Charlotte Olympia gold island platform. Personally I love sling backs because they are so much less ‘confined’ if that makes any sense. Anyway get your hands on a pair of these before she becomes as famous as Mr. Louboutin. Available on the Bergdorf Goodman website for $905.

eBay Picks – YSL

I have many obsessions as you are probably starting to notice if you’ve read through a few of my posts. Adding to my collection of obsessions is eBay. I thought it may be fun to tell you about some great things on eBay right now that I wish I could bid on. Unfortunately my rent is so high I have almost no discretionary income so maybe you all can bid on these things in my absence.

Just a small disclaimer: I am in no way affiliated with any of these sellers, I’m not endorsing them and I’m not guaranteeing anything they are selling is 100% authentic. I am simply surfing eBay and telling you about things I think are cool.

You all know about one of my other obsessions, vintage sunglasses, I am loving these huge YSL’s! Ending in one day so get in there fast! They are actually at a decent price right now even though it is an internatinal listing in GBP.

Question – Answer: Wide Calf Boots?

Question:  Do you have any suggestions for boots that fit wider calfs and are actually stylish?

Answer: I too struggle with this issue and I have searched high and low for boots that run a little wider and are actually stylist enough to wear at work in the fashion industry in New York City. Now there are styles available at plus size chains such as Lane Bryant, Torrid, and Avenue at very affordable prices. But you will get what you pay for and that is, noticeably fake leather. I have nothing against them at all and that is fine for shopping on a budget, running around on the weekend, or going out with friends when your bound to have a drink or three spilt on your feet. My answer for something that fits fashion industry standards; Marina Rinaldi. Italian plus size clothing designer that actually makes luxury, fashionable clothing in larger sizes.

From their website:

Still today the target at the core of the brand is to create garments in line with fashion trends, synonymous with quality and preciosity of the fabrics and tailoring details.

Shoe of the Day! – Giuseppe Zanotti

It’s Thursday and it’s time for another shoe of the day! I am going to blog about current season items before I get into some of the great things seen on the S12 runways. So this leads me to my LOVE  for Giuseppe Zanotti. It’s impossible to pick one shoe because I love them all. I am so excited for Spring but right now I am loving this slingback from Fall. It covers several trends, we’ve got color-blocking, and strass because everyone loves a little bling! I think for $1495 that’s a whole lot of shoe!

From the Zanotti website: Peep-toe sling-backs in purple, red and yellow suede, entirely covered with tone-on-tone crystals. Fun, well-balanced play on color for shoes fit for a pop star. Perfect for the red carpet, but also paired with your favorite jeans.
