Sooooo, the fall preview for Neiman Marcus just hit the web waves, and it has none other than PUMPS written all over it! Yep, as far as I can tell the Fall 2011 trends are pointing to rich reds & purples, leopard love, round-toe and peep-toe too. From Jimmy Choo, to Tory Burch--my faves are splashed all over the NM page of fall finds. Here's a chic peek at what's the come. What's YOUR fave?
The Brian Atwood leopard print platform pump is topping my list of lovelies today--tall and chic and insanely gorgeous with any fall outfit! I just love the history on shoe designer guru Brian Atwood--a Chicago native, this style guru studied art and architecture until he wound up in the presence of Gianna Versace, becoming the first American designer Versace hired. And the rest is history (and good shoes), folks! Love his "old Hollywood meets modern European" designs.
I just dig the flared + funky heel on Miu Miu's suede peep toe heel, don't you? Sold in a decadent wine color or a sexy black suede, your legs will look long, long, long...watch out Heidi Klum! The nearly 5-inch heel helps a bit with that (wink!).
Did someone say candy? I thought I heard it! Well, London-based designer Charlotte Olympia Dellal sure did--this striped suede platform pump of Charlotte's reminds me of my old favorite Candyland game, or even a sweet pinwheel lollipop--all 5 1/2 inches of this heel is pure, unadulterated platform. Looks like a heel for one of the Kardashians, doesn't it?! So sweet!
And probably more on my 'affordable' side of the fall trends list is Rachel Zoe's suede platform pump. Not only is Ms. Zoe one of my favorite fashion divas, but she has impeccable style that would never do ya wrong! This almond toe, crocodile-embossed leather stands tall and towering (for us shorties), perfectly fit to pair with black skinny jeans or that posh pencil skirt. Wow, and check out the back of this baby!
Happy day to you--and get yourself ready to pump, pump, pump it up come fall season!
