Azure Thing

Elvis's were suede; Carrie's were silk. What are your BLUE SHOES made of?

Check out these fabulous designs, from the ubiquitous (the lone pair of Manolos in that dreamy penthouse walk-in closet in the SATC movie) to the obscure.

At right, the now iconic jeweled Manolo Blahnik Something Blue cobalt satin pump, with crystal broach detail on vamp. Go to neimanmarcus.com to purchase.

Christian Louboutin Nuit d'Ete suede lattice peep-toe platform sling back, available at Barneys New York.

Couture Carrie is absolutely enamored of Bruno Frisoni's two-tone taffeta ruffle sandal. Photo courtesy
Now, for the glam gladiator: the Paul and Joe turquoise triple-buckle suede sandal/bootie. This is my favorite type of shoe: the hybrid. It happily splits the difference between summer and winter. Wear these Paul & Joe
creations now with your white Philip Lim sundress or, come fall, with opaque Wolfords and a chic YSL wool suit. This photo and next via French Vogue.
Another tantalizing cerulean stunner? This Moschino zip-front gathered satin stiletto. Couture Carrie has several pairs of Moschino pumps and can attest that they are not only comfortable but quite durable as well.
If you tend to shy away from stilettos, perhaps you will be drawn to this Irregular Choice Princess blue patent flat. Loving the slim straps and double buckle detail! Go to http://www.irregularchoicestore.co.uk/ to buy.
Mosaic madness for your tootsies: Missoni printed-fabric pointed flats. Go to luckybreaksonline.com to get a sweet discount on these ones!
If baby blue is more your thing, opt for these Irregular Choice Sky Fox leather heels with unicorn print. So cute! And fyi, darlings, this rather obscure U.K. brand is a favorite of Zooey Deschanel!

Okay, those Bruno Frisoni heels totally rock. What am I going to do without them!?

Couture Carrie said...

Hey Blonde&Blue! Agreed; those Paul&Joe gladiators are a super fun way to mix it up.

Oh, shoes!

I love the Monolo's, they are so gorgeous!! Didn't Carrie Bradshaw have one pair similar to those in Sex and The City (the movie)? I just watched it today, and all the shoes... oh my god, I would sleep on them if I could!

Your new banner photo is beautiful! I couldn't believe that it was Blake Lively. She's so pretty.

I've never really liked colorful shoes until I started looking for shoes online and found gorgeous shoes like those posted, wow, now I'm completely enamored of them.
