Sweet Suede Shoes

One of autumn's essentials: the suede shoe!
What’s most exciting to CC about this trend? That these fabulously soft and sumptuous beauties can be found in any hue your little heart desires! (Just don't wear them in the rain, and if you do accidentally get them wet, stuff them with newspapers to absorb the moisture!!).

Isn't there a song called "Blue Suede Shoes"? :)

Some of these suede shoes are really beautiful!


elysia mann said...

ooooooh just too beautiful!!

Lisa said...

Such gorgeous shoes. You're right about not wearing suede in the rain, which means that here in Vancouver suede is pretty much forbidden about 3/4 of the year. =(

That being said, another easy way of preventing suede shoes from getting stained by water is to spray a couple coats of stain guard on them before the first time you wear them.

Love suede shoes, so not very good for this island weather because of the winter rain.


Couture Carrie said...

Susanna-Cole: Yes, you are right! I am such a dork I actually quoted it in my caption for that last pair of blue suede Manolo Blahniks!

Fashion Fille - agreed!

Lisa - great tip!

Seeker - indoors only for suede, I suppose?

Thanks darlings for all your lovely remarks!

I've been away from the computer for a few days, just catching up on your latest posts....lots and lots of sumptuous things to take in...and thank you so much for the award, it's very much appreciated!

Dana (MODAna) said...

I love all of these, urghhhhhh
esp the pink Louboutins, and I usually don't love Loubs
I think I love suede so much because growing up in Latin Ameria/Israel my winters were cold but not too rainy/snowy so suede was always a good option. I love suede. and it loves me back.


Great selection! Love suede shoes, so soft and comfortable. But the final quest is the real blue suede shoes!

Ellie Lee said...

The Christian Louboutin is in such a lovely teal color and the pair of Jill Sanders is just LOVE!
