I’ve been thinking pink in a big way this season…it’s always a favorite color of mine, and though pink for spring is a little predictable, all that talk about winter pastels put me over the edge. But not just any pink will do – no cotton candy or fuchsia here. I’m after a more subtle shade – a pale, whisper of a pink that you’d find on the inside of a seashell, the one that’s like a nude but infinitely warmer and universally flattering. A little something like this:
in a recent interview with now magazine, sarah jessica parker said she’d choose shoes over a guy – because they’re more dependable than men (ouch! matthew broderick?!). talking about her sex and the city character, carrie, the 43-year-old actress said she “could probably count on a manolo more than a man.” so is it better than sex? they asked. “yes!”
while i may not nessecarily agree with SJP, we definitely agree on a love for shoes. and i’ve recently discovered a new shop in the internet ether – solestuck – that allows for some serious shoe indulgence. the selection is amazing and, while there are no choos to choose from, these babies will fit much more nicely into your budget.
i adore betsey johnson’s playful bestyville line, and the lani heel is no exception. with the girly flower detail and the funky rubber heel, just thinking about them makes me feel like sugar and spice!
to keep my feet comfy (thanks to a padded sole) and looking fab, the exchange by charles david can easily be paired with a suit at the office. the liquid patent leather in burgundy is a perfect update to your fall look, and a steal at $44.95!
for a fun, casual weekend look, the dolce vita wendy boot is a gorgeous update on a riding boot, and would be perfect with jeans, a dress or even a mini – just make sure you add tights!
for me, though, the best part about solestruck is that you can’t get into too much trouble. most shoes are under $100, and i don’t think i saw anything much over $200. plus, their packaging is truly fab – it makes the online order that much more exciting!
best of all, the kind folks at solestruck have generously offered SMC readers an exclusive discount! just enter code FERXKU9UN at checkout for 20% off your purchase, but only until september 19…so shop it up! and, of course, make sure you let us know what you pick up while you’re there.
