Also on my fashion radar is PARIS REFASHIONED, 1957-1986 at the Museum which will examine the shift from haute couture to accessible ready to wear.... Feb.10- April 15, 2017.

Until next time C&C

SHOE BIZ

I know you love your Manolos and Louboutins but just in case you'd rather spend your money on rent  I have a suggestion for satisfying that shoe craving. Try these stylish and more affordable options:

CHARLES DAVID; This well known brand is revisiting some classic silhouettes. I'm drooling over the "Bristol", an ankle strapped block heeled sandal in vivid teal, orange or taupe suede.  I'd walk all day in these or maybe I'd prefer the "mellow" flat in silver or gold metallic........decisions, decisions !  From the lower priced CHARLES line I'd opt for a chic city sandal in red or black suede with contrast whip stitching and tassel edged ties. For more info go to https://www.charlesdavid.com/

MORESCHI is an Italian designer brand with a 70 year history.  After seeing the stunning range of delicate stilettoes, block heeled wedges, classic loafers and more in bright and neutral shades,.I can't wait for spring.  I must have a pair of two two tone leather and suede spectators and the ankle trapped high heeled sandals.  The spring collection is available in all major department stores nationwide.

SSH-OES offers the most "quiet comfortable heels on the planet" - designer Mary Arnett delivers the goods with fashion forward styling. I love her perfect low wedged pump in bone or black patent. I'll walk on air all spring in these shoes. The classic pump in pewter metallic with it's memory foam in sole will take you through the longest day and evening.
