I love printed suede. How luxe. And I love seeing a designer flat, instead of the usual heel. And this one’s by Manolo Blahnik. It’s the Zebra-Print Ballerina Slipper, or simply, Lee. She is divine, and she is $495 at Neiman Marcus.

This black patent leather kitten heel is just so pretty, yet wearable, enough to be my new dressy shoe to replace those lovelies that didn’t fit. But these are modern, trendy & grown up. On the vamp, they have a silver band, an amber rhinestone, and a matching transparent vinyl panel - very unique!
There seems to be some comfort for these pointy-toed shoes, even, based on Bluefly’s description: a sueded inner heel—sounds nice! Plus there’s only a 1 inch heel, the perfect medium.
Sadly, there’s only size 10 left, but they are selling for only $81.99.

Meredith Viera (so long in just a few!) told a delightful story on David Letterman last night about shoes — what else?
She said that when she was a child, at the end of a school year, her mother would take away her school shoes and hand her flip flops, which would be worn ’til season’s end.
So bring on the thongs!
A great new pair is the Kenneth Cole “Jewel Thief.” It’s oh-so fashion forward; certainly not your mom or your daughter’s flip flop! Certainly not the shoe once worn by Meredith, who detests dressing up.
The results of our first poll are concluded, but I must confess, I’ve been a little worried all along. After I attempted to clarify what a medium heel is to me (and a sculpted wedge), your votes for that type went up!
Still I know I should have included images at the start, I have them for you now:
(Thin & Sleek - Medium & Trendy - Thick & Sturdy - Standard Wedge - Sculpted Wedge)
The winner was the … Entry continued, read more »
The divine-ness that is the “wedge pump.” I truly love love the wedge style with a tricky look of a thin* pump heel. These Donald Pliner Sportique suede “Heather” wedge pumps are on sale at Bluefly.com for $62.99. If one of various foot sizes, you too can own a pair of fabulousness with these super-stylish wedges. The price is right, now to make these in mid heels, please?
*Actually, the pump look is pretty much on the thin side of medium, as related to our first poll: on heel width, but the entire shoe style counts as a “sculpted wedge.” The Medium & Trendy option is slightly winning out, and I just want to make sure you are voting according to my ideas of what the words mean, because results will be discussed in an article according to them. You can also see a medium heel in the pink illustration that rotates into view on our header every few page impressions, and as pictured below … Entry continued, read more »
You see people walking along the street all the time, and you know darn well they’re wearing shoes that don’t fit.
No one has two feet that are exactly the same, either, but when you buy a pair of shoes, they’re both the same. Seems wrong. …
The shoe business must be good anyway though, because we all buy more shoes than we wear. We keep looking for that perfect pair. Our closets runneth over with shoes. I must have 20 pairs of shoes I don’t wear, but they cost so much, I can’t stand to throw them out.
That cranky man always has pithy and humorous points … but I still love shoes.
Bonus: for fabulous living (with the best eating), you must check out the interview with the owner of Whole Foods Market.
I’ve started polls here. Hopefully they’ll be successful. They can lead to post ideas or just interesting discoveries.
They will be placed on the left sidebar below the image banner ad (from Glam).
The first poll is:
Which High Heel Width is Best?
* Thin & Sleek (stiletto and the like)
* Thick & Sturdy (the practical)
* Medium & Trendy (like with the current platform trend [not your 70s or 90s platform, though])
* Sculpted Wedge (rarer)
* Standard Wedge (thicker & more shapeless)
Please leave your comments on the poll on this post!
The hottest shoes (IT shoes!) for summer are the red hot Christian Louboutins with cork heels, and Bergdorf Goodman has a brown suede peep-toe slingback version.
The tobacco suede is subtler than a patent black or red, but we still have the classic Louboutin toe, this time in peep-toe cork, and of course the signature red sole.
With a high, high heel and an elastic sling back, this shoe comes in at $670.
Welcome, new visitors to Lipped Media, and old yet young-at-heart, alike. There’s something for everyone here every Monday when I dig up recent posts from our network that are of special interest to style, shoes, fashion news, et cetera. Right. Right to it!
- At Style Spotlight
- High Fashion High found sweet, yet funky-contrasted pumps and Glitterella Heels!!!
- Pet-Pet has a great thought against Doggie “Saying” T-shirts, and found chic Graphic Tees. That’s interesting, because it goes along with a post I’ve had in mind here (for humans!)!
