Feathered Footwear!

Fall's feathers have made their way from head (recall this CC post from July!) to toe! For those who are "balking" at the trend, feathered footwear may just be the perfect way to ease in to the bird-brained scheme! Plus, it doesn't get more fanciful and glamorous than a plumed pump, right?
At left, “Rare Birds” via nytimes.com: Clockwise from bottom left: Miu Miu platform pumps with paillette detail; Donna Karan velvet sandal with ropes of silk fabric; Pierre Hardy patent pumps with goat fur; Donna Karan suede slides with feather detail; Pierre Hardy multicolor lace-ups (both sides shown).

It's funny that the NYT and the NY'er had the same birdcage idea!

The darn things got wings!! Love the fine feathered shoes. Love to see all these shoes of a feather flocked together. Hope some of this winged migration fly into my closet.;-)

I heart the shoes! If only I had the money! Check out my fashion blog at www.glambitionfashion.blogspot.com.
I love your blog, keep posting!

Gorgeous shoes. For those who can't afford the shoes (or those who are afraid the feathers on the shoes will be ruined with a lot of wear and tear), one good option would be the Marciano feather belt I featured in this old post.

ryder said...

Carolina Lange said...

michelle said...

Tina :) said...

So sexy and glamourous! I probably wouldn't wear it, but I love this look!

sydneydoll said...

i don't really care for aggy either.
i'm going to do a post about her soon.
she doesn't seem that special to me.

i wonder if those shoes are ticklish.

Sydney Speel said...

these are gorgeous!

Farren said...

I don't think I am fanciful enough to go full on bird on my foot, but I like the ones with nice little touches of feathers. <3

Miss Karen said...

Feathered heels are so chic - I want a pair I can swan around in at home with an expensive silk robe and limitless expensive champagne.

Songy said...

allow me to have some occasions to wear these show stoppers. I would try all of them. I wouldn't wear any fancy clothes. just go with plain dresses. they will do. Oh beauties.

Eelie said...

Ooh, this evokes such conflicting thoughts! Realistically this trend should be an absolute 'NO GO' but for some reason the Givenchy's and ONLY the givenchy's have made me doubt this. Maybe subtlety is the key? In which case they are magnificent ;)

Sara Li said...

I love my shoes but I don't like them to look like birds. I am not into this look. It isn't for me.
