I decided for my New Years resolution that I would give up buying new shoes for 6 months. Now, this came on the heels of the Barney's sale where I went a little wild, but, still, I'm going to give it a go. I can't stop thinking of the Sex in the City episode where Carrie realizes she has spent what would have been a down payment for an apartment on shoes. "I will literally be the old woman who lived in her shoes!"
Not that I'm as shoe crazy as Carrie (well, maybe), but I could curtail my collecting a bit. Everywhere you turn in my apartment there are shoeboxes hiding!
One of my friends sagely commented, "Six months seems like a long time, what about the Spring collections!" (HIS resolution was to give up smoking. Overachiever).
Well, maybe I can give myself 2 "Get Out of Jail Free cards". . . hmm . . . What would be my picks? Obviously, a pair of Proenza Schoulers. If you haven't noticed, I love the design duo, and their shoes always amaze.
Oh, and Jil Sander's metal heels and platforms! I've been on the search for navy heels . . .
Maybe Christopher Kane's screw-like heels? How great would these look with a classic black cocktail dress?
And Lanvin's classic nude and cream pumps. They would go perfect with a brown shirt dress that I have . . .
And Gianfranco Ferré! What are you doing to me?! You know I'm a sucker for architectural heels!
