When Bad Shoes Happen to Good People

Tuesday, December 27th, 2011

bad shoes

This is a classic case of ‘When Bad Shoes Happen to Good People’ and the celebrities are the culprits.

No matter how much money you have, bad fashion can still plague you. Even the fashion icon, Sarah Jessica Parker has a few misses here and there! It’s no surprise that Heidi Montag made this list, neither is it a shocker that Lady Gaga gets the fashion police called on her. Some celebrities go out of their way to be a fashion don’t, while others just have drunk stylists.

This is a call to action for shoe lovers everywhere to stop this bad shoe epidemic. We must end our fear of bad shoes and stand up to the unfashionable! Don’t let bad shoes happen to good people!

What Would Carrie Do?

Monday, November 7th, 2011

dna footwear

You can’t be a shoe fanatic and not feel akin to Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) — the style icon who put Manolo on the map. While we don’t advise spending a month’s rent on one pair of Manolos or Loubs, you can still pull a ‘Carrie’ with DNA Footwear.

Before you select a pair or heels, ask yourself ‘What Would Carrie Do?’ and style accordingly. The fashionable New Yorker galavants around the city in only the most coveted footwear — from Swarovski crystals to bow embellished stilettos. Rarely will you catch Carrie in flats, which is unrealistic for a New Yorker who spends her days walking, but since it’s Sex and the City we’ll overlook this inaccuracy.

footwear news

Thank God it’s Friday, which means it’s time for the ‘Weekly Footwear News Roundup’.

This week has been fairly slow in terms of footwear news and seemed to be filled with the ongoing “shoe war” between Blahnik and Louboutin — will the  accusations ever cease?!  On a happier note, we’d like to introduce you to footwear designer Mark Charles, who will change the way you look at boots (Trust us!). If his designs don’t put a smile on your face maybe this week’s TWO collaboration alerts will: Steve Madden + Betsey Johnson and Jeremy Scott + Adidas. While we know you want to snag up those collaborations, you may want to leave this purchase behind: Nine West’s “stiletto-inspired” scent… no comment.


This Friday we leave you with this:

In Her Shoes: Sarah Jessica Parker

Thursday, September 15th, 2011

Ever wonder how you can walk a mile in Sarah Jessica Parker’s shoes? No, we can’t offer you three best friends, a dream closet, or a successful journalistic career, but what we can offer you is Yosi Samra flats. You too can scamper around town like a celebrity in the “Hottest Fall Fashion Buys For Under $100″ as seen in this week’s issue of Us Weekly.

An extension of the J. Loren company, Yosi Samra is the namesake designer of the brand.  Yosi Samra’s footwear is unique while never sacrificing style, proven by the line’s celebrity clientele. Not only are the flats stylish, coming in a variety of colors and prints, but they are also affordable (and who doesn’t like durable yet affordable footwear?!).

Sarah Jessica Parker

New York City’s number one fashionista is, without a doubt, Sarah Jessica Parker. As Carrie Bradshaw in the hit series Sex and the City, she became New York’s “it” girl and trend-setter. This summer, SJP has been spotted rocking a pair of white sandals reminiscent of clogs. One of her favorite items, these Bohemian-inspired sandals add a touch of fun to any outfit while keeping it glamorous. You can get Sarah Jessica Parker’s look with the Luxury Rebel Kessy Sandal.

Like SJP’s, the Kessy sandal features a white leather upper and a clog-like heeled sole. With a four-inch heel and a one-and-a-quarter-inch platform, these trendy sandals give you some height while still keeping you extremely comfortable. Like Sarah Jessica Parker does, these sandals can be paired with anything from jeans to summer dresses. The Luxury Rebel Kessy is the perfect choice for that staple summer sandal you have been looking for. It also comes in brown if you prefer darker colors. To look like the most stylish woman in New York, add some casual glamor to your everyday wardrobe with the Luxury Rebel Kessy.

Hot New Trend Alert: Square Toe Pumps

Thursday, August 26th, 2010

The late fashion designer Alexander McQueen was known for always throwing in something unexpected.  So we should hardly be surprised that he sent models down the runway with something new and different on their feet.  McQueen played off of the closed-toe, platform stiletto high heel that has been so popular lately, but squared off the toe, sometimes emphasizing the area with a contrasting color.

This trend is oh-so-sexy and absolutely perfect for a cocktail party.  Not surprisingly, in-style celebs have jumped on this trend and have been gobbling up the Alexander McQueen pumps.  Christina Aguilera, Sarah Jessica Parker, Liv Tyler and Victoria Beckham all love the square toe pump and have rocked a pair at red-carpet events.  

The Alexander McQueen pumps that Victoria Beckham is wearing retail for $710.  But you can take advantage of this super-sexy trend for a much more reasonable price.  Gwen Stefani‘s L.A.M.B. shoe line has a few square toe creations of its own.  They are right on trend, but they’ll leave some cash left in your wallet.

We L.O.V.E. this L.A.M.B. bowling shoe-inspired square toe pump.  The button detailing is so cute for this fall, and the contrasting camel and black colors really set off the sassy square toe.

Another favorite are these gold-studded L.A.M.B. pumps.  These sky-high, square-toe platforms manage to incorporate all the latest trends.  Wear them with a skinny jeans for maximum wow factor!

Sex and the City Returns, As Does Big Shoe Fashion

Friday, May 28th, 2010

I have no problem admitting that I’m a Sex and the City addict. Not only did I watch every episode religiously when it aired on HBO, but I now own every season on dvd, books about Sex and the City, as well as the first feature film. When I found out there was going to be a second feature film awhile back, I practically screeched with joy.

One of the reasons why so many women (including myself) adore this series, other than the interesting characters, is the entertainment, awe, and education we get from the amazing fashion demonstrated by the leading ladies of  Sex and the City. First and foremost, who hasn’t learned about the greatness of shoes from Sarah Jessica Parker’s character, Carrie Bradshaw? She is the epitome of a stylish, fashion-forward woman, and her trademark is her love of shoes. (Does anyone else remember the episode when she realized she had over 400 pairs of shoes?!)

As a tribute to the latest Sex and the City release, I will be posting various pictures of the lovely ladies with some of their inspiring shoe choices, as well as links where you could purchase them yourself! Enjoy!

A sparkly, gorgeous, and affordable pair of gold shoes, like those that Carrie is wearing in this Sex and the City poster, is the Ladybug High Heel Sequined Shoe by Chinese Laundry. This fabulous Chinese Laundry heel has the super trendy peep toe look, and will make you feel like a princess walking around in gold shimmer.  The Ladybug High Heel Sequined Shoe by Chinese Laundry is also on sale at DNA Footwear, so it’s easy and won’t break the bank to be as glamorous as Carrie Bradshaw!
