The question is not who is she wearing, but what is she rocking on her feet? These days shoes have come to be art in themselves. From cut out-wedges to sky high stilettos, these shoes have a statement of their own. The biggest names in shoes Christian Louboutin, Manolo Blahnik, Jimmy Choo, Roger Vivier, Giuseppe Zannoti and more have all been made famous thanks to Sex and The City. Through out this shows existence these brands have been repeatedly worn and advertised, so much so that all of the celebrities and civilians wanted a piece of that Carrie Bradshaw shoe action.
Although these big brands are edgy, stylish, and made to wear they pale in comparison to my favorite shoetacular works of art. Alexander McQueen shoes are like none other. They are not exactly made to be worn out but they are INCREDIBLE! They are seen in music videos and ad campaigns, those who dare to walk in these heels are always seen on the red carpet. The catwalk McQueen shoes are not sold to the masses or even in stores, they are gifted to those lucky celebrities and big names in fashion . I know if I had $5,000 I would pay just to have a pair of these babies in my shoe closet.
I am no different than all the other shoe-crazed ladies, I managed to fit a shoe closet exploding with shoes in my tiny little studio apartment (guess thats why I love my internship so much!). So how is it that I have a bunch of shoes that I could never afford in my closet? Two words ladies and gentlemen, SAMPLE SALES. I’ve been to many and can tell you right now if you love fashion as much as I do, they are worth the wait. With websites like Daily Candy, Madison Avenue Spy, and Racked.Com I am always up-to-date on the upcoming sample sales and private sales (Madison Ave Spy, by far the best website!!). Stalk the websites and keep these sales to yourself cause chances are every woman in NYC wants in and will be waiting online before you have a chance to even consider going.
