 Oh No They Did Not!!!

As I have share with you my passion for Balenciaga, going to tradeshows I learned the term of “taking down” a style…when I saw these by Bakers I have to admit that I was schoked!!!

 Balenciaga caged toe Oh No They Did Not!!!

Here’s the real deal…The Caged Toe Sandal

80%20 @ FFANY

06 June 2008, 17.19 | Posted in Fashion, Shoes | No comments »

Ce Ce Chen, founder and designer for 80%20 (inspired by the theory that 20 percent of wardrobe is worn 80 percent of the time) is one of those females that’s beloved around these parts. She’s smart, creative, a total go-getter, not to mention a cutie from the inside out. She was showing her fall 2008 line at FFANY and here are some of the highlights (she didn’t show her riding boot style ’cause it’s already sold out!):

^^The hidden wedge that’s her signature with Western details that are going to make this boot perfect for fall.

NoMass @ FFANY

05 June 2008, 17.01 | Posted in Accessories, Fashion, Shoes | No comments »

Next up from my visit to FFANY is NoMass, a brand-spanking new men’s and women’s shoe line. I had no introduction to this company other than I passed their suite (one part of the show was held in hotel rooms at the New York Hilton) and their shoes caught my eye. Unlike almost everyone else at the show, they were actually taking some chances!

Here was my fave, no surprise part of it is white and features patent leather!:

^^I wanna say this one is called Raine. The line launches in the fall (though I think this one is spring 2009) and I’m told you should be able to purchase it on Zappos.

Nomass2 NoMass @ FFANY

^^Don’t know the name of these, but they are super fun and a perfect denim match up.

The shoes will be priced from $75 to $135 and they’re leather-lined!

Glory Chen @ FFANY

05 June 2008, 16.08 | Posted in Fashion, Shoes, Stores | No comments »

It’s been a busy week for me. Yesterday I put in some time at FFANY, a New York shoe show. Not much stood out, but there were a few things. First up, Glory Chen, a brand that on Sunday up a store in SoHo at 121 Greene Street. These shoes are perfect for that mature, designed-minded female who is over being trendy, but still wants to stand out, albeit in a more subtle/clever manner:

^^Note the sly cut out near the toe.

Pat Field: New Collection at Payless

29 May 2008, 20.55 | Posted in Shoes, Stores | No comments »

Pat Field’s collabo continues with Payless. This collection looks better to me than her initial offerings, which were a bit too tranny for my tastes. Not that’s there’s anything wrong with tranny, but I just don’t think brightly-colored, 70s platforms are the hot look right now.

The collection includes a clutch, some pumps and some sandals:

^^The color and materials are great, plus you get Pat Field’s name on the shoe, all for a mere 25 bucks!

Snobettiest Item of the Day: Louie-B Flourescent Orange Wedges!!!

29 May 2008, 16.24 | Posted in Fashion, Shoes | No comments »

I started this item-of-the-day feature a couple weeks ago and managed to keep it up for a whole five days in a row (if that even!) Besides obvious issues with the limits of my attention span, I have to say that there are some days when I just don’t come across an item worthy of Snobettiest status. So now I’m just gonna do it when I see something that’s amazing. Like, for example, these killer Louboutin platforms. I mean, come on. Just look at them! I defy you to find a single thing wrong with them:

Marc Jacobs Bag @ ShopBop: Small-Minded

27 May 2008, 18.05 | Posted in Accessories, Fashion, Shoes, Stores | No comments »

An interview with Pat Field was featured on PerezHilton exclusively yesterday. Given her considerable talents, it was pretty interesting to listen to her breakdown her style choices for the Sex & the City movie. One thing she mentioned was a move toward smaller bags.

This Marc Jacobs bag recently added to ShopBop sure does speak to the trend (for scale reference, the zipper is seven inches long):

^^Small bag that packs a huge strap!

(On another note, I feel like such utter crap today. I was out in the sun and fresh air for a whole three days and after five months of grey skies and 40-degree weather, I do believe my body is suffering from a state of shock!)

M.O.B. Flip-flops: Talk about a Conversation Piece!

21 May 2008, 18.24 | Posted in Other, Shoes, Stores | No comments »

M.O.B. designer Leah McSweeney is at it again, providing her loyalists with fresh, new ways to crack wise on the world. This time it’s a classic profile, made brazen by one of M.O.B.’s most clever tag lines to date: "Men Are the New Women." Jaws will be jibber-jabbing over these!
