Well, I needed something to go with this purse . . . laugh.gif

In my experience a girl who has a closet full of trendy shoes and handbags cares more about the criticism of other women, whereas a girl who is more likely to spend her free shopping time picking out underwear tends to put more weight on the opinions of her inner circle of friends and family.

I also bought some new brassieres to make sure I'm down with my inner circle. rolleyes.gif

What the hell?! Ya buncha practical shoe wearin' freaks! laugh.gif

These are my current obsession, the Gee Wa Wa Flora in Kelly green. I like the raspberry ones as well, but I already have enough red shoes.

Talking about comfort:

These. I had to get used to the look of these, but by browsing through fashion blogs fot inspiration these sandals suddenly clicked with some ensembles i had in mind. Still too cold to wear them outside, but this afternoon looks promising.

Ooh, pretty!

Yes, comfort is a priority for me. But I love high heels on other people's feet!

Nice, Persiflager! Those must be very comfortable!

I just bought these. Mine are tan though.

Archegonia, when in doubt, when bummed out, I indulge in my love for shoes by online window shopping. Of course, some shoes are like architecture: beautiful to look at, but I wouldn't want to live in them!

I have the world's biggest neo-sixties girl group crush on these beautiful new Fluevogs, the Attentions Paris Beige Devilfish. Oh, so sexy, oh so neutral. WAAAAANT. I need them to go with my new ASOS dress with the Peter Pan collar.

Must. Win. Lotto. Alexander! McQueen!

Is it weird that I desperately miss this man I never knew? This man I want to just call 'Lee' because I am so familiar with his work that he feels like an old friend? ::sighs:: It still makes me terribly, terribly sad that such an amazing, creative spirit extinguished his own light.

These fall somewhere between Elton John's Pinball Wizard Doc Martens & something very TRex, but god help me, I love them: Jeffrey Campbell's Glitter Lita. The Lita has been the go fall shoe since they launched despite the fact that they are a shoe that only a fashion blogger could love. I have been waiting for the glitter ones to launch since August & have, in fact, planned a huge chunk of my A/W purchases around them. Glitter, purple, & back pony & I am a happy lass!

Also, Fluevog is at it again! Behold . . . the LOURDES. I luff shoes with button detailing! They've also updated my favorite Giulia's in black velvet.

Oooooh! How I love thee, Jeffrey Campbell!

Persi, I moved your query over to the purse thread. I hope you find what you are looking for!

Ohhh, pretty shoeses!

Can I ask about handbags? Apologies for posting in the wrong thread - advertising had made me think that shoes and bags are basically the same thing.

Anyway, I'm basically trying to find a smart leather version of my current scruffy messenger bag, but they're all so..... girly! I like across-body bags as they're more comfortable, with internal pockets and as few buckles, frills, bows and other nonsense as possible.

Any tips?

Neutrals are rampant this year.

Eh, I don't like BR anyways. I have a pair of fantastic boots from there that I bought ten years ago, but the shit I had to go through to get them? Feh. I sat on a bench in the middle of the store for nearly ten minutes before somebody actually deigned to help me. Plus, they are the same company as ON & ON doesn't want fat chicks in their stores, so they deserve it in the fuckin' ear.

I do hope the QVC line is cool, though. I'd rather buy from corny QVC than BR.

And Syb, woman? EMPTY YO INBOX! BISH BE TRYIN' SEND YOU SOMETHIN'!

Curse you Anthropologie! Fall Frolic Booties, Cloaked & Buttoned Booties, Purple Unfolding Booties, Forest Flower Oxfords, Lass & Laddie Oxfords, Peppermint Swirl Spectators, & Eyelet Platforms.

Encouraging, but I looked at the previews... you know what colour the Mad Men women don't wear? The ubiquitous grey which is all over the runway previews...again. Will check actual BR site in a few weeks.

/derail, for real this time

I know this is supposed to be about shoes, but I *can* tell you that the head costumer from Mad Men, Janie Bryant, is partnering with both Banana Republic & QVC to launch MM inspired lines this A/W. We shall see.

I am scared to check out net-a-porter: too many temptations, I would have to take up gambling. LOVE the Miu Mius... even though I couldn't walk in them.

ETA: This is why I can't find any Mad Men-inspired wool frocks... because they're all over 500. /threadfail

And now a report from the shoes that are ridiculously expensive:

I DIE. I die TWICE for Alaia. LITERALLY. B-A-N-A-N-A-S! Shut the front door! Oh, if I had the legs . . .

Y'know, I don't shop from crazy insane priced places, but they often have really great styling tips & knock-offs/substitutes are easily found.
