Balenciaga: Open for Business

20 May 2008, 21.57 | Posted in Accessories, Fashion, Shoes, Stores | No comments »

According to the most relentless email updaters on the planet, aka Racked.com, you can now buy Balenciaga online. Can’t say I’m too excited by that news. When I read a while back how broke up Kanye was that they denied him entry to their show, I was like, "Huh? Who the eff are they???" So I’m posting this ’cause I know it’s the cool brand that everyone who’s cool is into. Who knows, maybe I’m just being stoooopid and someone will explain it to me. It wouldn’t be the first time!

Modern Vintage @ Shopbop: A Close Approximation

20 May 2008, 17.00 | Posted in Accessories, Fashion, Shoes, Stores | No comments »

A couple days ago, Samia posted up an image of Sigerson Morrison’s now famous gladiator, which was highlighted by Style.com’s as a must-have for spring. If you can’t afford that beauty, and it is an amazing shoe, then you might be able to console yourself with this slightly more affordable version by Modern Vintage as featured on ShopBop.

Louie-B: Limited Resort Collection

19 May 2008, 14.52 | Posted in Fashion, Shoes, Stores | No comments »

Louboutin is doing a special collabo with One and Only Resorts (some super-stuffy/expensive, international resort chain). There will be three styles and the collection launches in June. You can only buy them at the resort or the Louie-B stores in New York and London.

 LouBOne Only Louie B: Limited Resort Collection

Me and Samia were talking shoes yesterday and I had to clarify that I am back to liking Louie-B after a period of hating him for being overly obsessed with that trademark red heel, which–thank god–he appears to have moved past. I think this collection is just okay (though granted, perfect for a hoighty toighty resort setting), but there’s other shoes he’s been designing lately that have been great.

Chanel Resort 2009

16 May 2008, 19.44 | Posted in Accessories, Fashion, Shoes | No comments »

Chanel is such an on-fire brand these days that no doubt images from its Resort 2009 show are all over the web (it helps that it was in Miami and it got all-the-usual-suspect celeb attendance), but oh well, even though I may be late, here are a few items I appreciated. And then one look I’m not so sure about!

ChaelResortLogoDress Chanel Resort 2009

^^Look at the logo. Karl is FEELING himself and the Chanel name and no doubt enjoying rubbing it in his competitor’s faces that the double C’s are one of the last logos left standing that the cool girls are not only willing, but happy to flaunt front and center. If "Breakfast at Tiff’s" were being filmed today, this dress would be a fine choice for Audrey.

Two more if you click to the right!

RihRih’s Neon Concert Boots

12 May 2008, 15.32 | Posted in Fashion, Other, Shoes | No comments »

As an opening act for Kanye’s Glow in the Dark concert, RihRih suited up in an outfit that included velcro patent boots with neon straps. I can’t say I’m super crazy about them. The clunky heel bugs me, though I understand that they’re dance shoes so they have to provide some quasi-solid footing. Lord knows she doesn’t need to look any stiffer than she already does when she performs live.

^^Are we gonna see a bunch more neon as a result of this tour? I’ll bet a yes on that.

Pollini Neon Wedge Sandals @ ShopBop: So Cute!!

02 May 2008, 20.25 | Posted in Fashion, Shoes, Stores | 1 comment »

Since David, our boss, only sleeps 18 minutes/day, he has a lot of time to look around for interesting stuff and is nice enough to email us the links. Sometimes I look at the items and I’m like, jeebus David, that is going on HighSnobette over my dead body! But just when I start thinking what a clueless doofus he is, he sends a link to a pair of shoes like these and I’m like, wow! For a dude, he has amazing taste!

Kim Kardashian @ Jimmy Choo Sydney Store Launch

30 April 2008, 20.44 | Posted in Fashion, Other, Shoes | 1 comment »

Kim apparently is doing a little tour of Australia. She attended a fashion show a few days ago, and yesterday she made an appearance at the launch of Jimmy Choo’s stand-alone Sydney boutique.

The funny thing is, if you look at the Wire images, there are as many images of Kim as there are the runway show that took place during the launch party!

^^Oof, champagne, pink candles. Can we all agree that Ma mos definitely does NOT have it rough! And on top of all that, Jimmy clearly chose to give Kim….

One of the nicest things about doing this blog is when our readers put us on to amazing things we’d never see in a million years if it weren’t for them. After seeing our charm bracelet post yesterday, reader Bridget let us know about jewelry designer Thomas Sabo, who makes charms like you would not believe. Shoes, purses, dresses, all sorts of trinkets that would melt even the coldest fashionista’s heart melt.
