So I know that it is cold outside and I should totally post a practical pair of boots for Wishlist Wednesday. But, I have never been the practical type so I am posting what I love instead. Today’s wishlist pick is Jimmy Choo’s Davy boot. I have never been brave enough to get behind the open-toe boot trend but if I was I would definitely be wearing these boots. Enjoy!
So I looked up sexy in the dictionary and instead found a picture of these Sergio Rossi “Secret” over the knee boots. The combination of the burgundy suede with the black lace up detailing is pure and utter perfection. I love the name but let’s be serious, if you are wearing these boots it will be no secret that you are a sexy vixen and everyone best get out of your way. Please take a look and then promptly wipe the drool from your mouths.
So I was walking through Bergdorf’s last week minding my own business not even intending to look at shoes. I was going to meet someone in Dior (another problem in and of itself). But as I was turning the corner and I saw these boots. I had to do a double take. At this point, there are not many Louboutin booties that surprise me or even entice me. There are the basics which we all know and love but who knew this simple mixture of leather and suede would make my heart skip a beat. There really is nothing left to say at this point but want, need and love!
I have been dreaming of spring and summer in the worst way given the frigid weather we have been having in NYC. But then these Altuzarra boots graced the runway during New York Fashion Week and I was transported back wishing it was next fall already and these boots were in my closet. Now of course that is ludicrous. I really want the snow to melt so that I can break out my sandals immediately. If I can’t get that, lusting after these boots are clearly the next best thing.
Last week I went to London and Paris for a bit of a winter break. Anyone who knows me is very aware (and perhaps also the customs officer who took note of my previous stamps from Paris) that I adore Paris. It’s one of my favorite cities in the world. I love to wander around the city and take in all that it has to offer – which of course includes great food and shopping. This visit was no different. I went to some of my favorite shops and Italian restaurant in Le Marais.
This visit I also had the opportunity to visit the Francesco Russo salon. If you have been reading any of my posts lately, you know that I am crushing really hard on his shoe designs right now. My heart sank a little when I arrived at the shop with my girlfriend only to see a “Be back in 30 minutes” note in the window. It was almost 4:00 in the afternoon, so we decided to grab a late lunch and return because not visiting the salon was not an option. In hindsight, it was probably best that we had a rest and fueled up a bit because I certainly needed all of my strength for all of the awesomeness that awaited me.
That moment when the perfect pair of grey boots that you have been looking for all season magically show up on the last call sale rack and they are 50% percent off. I searched high and low this season for these Christian Louboutin boots. They appeared to be sold out everywhere so I had given up all hope. So imagine my surprise, when I stumbled into Bergdorfs on Saturday to warm up after what I can only describe now as a misguided trip to Central Park in 15 degree weather to practice taking pics. And yes I went to Bergdorfs to warm up! Don’t judge! Anyways, back to the boots. I decided to swing through the shoe department to take a look around and peruse the sale rack one more time. I first saw the boots in a half size smaller than what I usually wear but decided to try them on anyways since miracles do happen. As I sat down to try them on I spotted the same boots in my actual size. Hello! Of course they were a perfect fit. Shoemiracle! Here is a pic of my lovelies! Can’t wait to wear them!
Today’s pick is Alaïa’s folded suede boot in red. Alaïa is known for his clingy dresses but I have to admit that I have found myself on many occasions dreaming about his shoes. They are beautifully crafted and extremely sexy. As soon as I saw this Alaïa boot I couldn’t help but fantasize about what they would look like on my feet. The holiday season is really kicking into gear now and I can’t think of a better pair of shoes to find under my Christmas tree. These boots are available to purchase from Net-a-Porter.
