Shoe Month! Plumcake’s Favorites

So okay, I might be having a major fabric shoe moment. I don’t know why but I am.

I generally don’t buy much in the way of fabric shoes because I have a hard time spending what I normally spend on shoes on something as delicate as silk and I still will not, unless for very good reason, break the $300 barrier on fabric shoes.

That being said:

Giorgio Armani satin belt sandals

*siiiiiigh*

I want them ALL: the black, the navy AND the pretty pretty ballet pink.

Giorgio Armani makes excellent shoes for the woman who appreciates a solid heel.  Plus the ankle ties with a buckle belt, so no worries about not having enough strap.

They’re on pretty decent sale at YOOX and are just that pretty, delicate but not perilous (the heel is high, but there’s a 1.5″ platform wedge) lovely shoe that makes you think of perfume and powder and all the joys –expensive though they might be– of being a girly girl, even if it’s just once a year.

    Shoe month is breaking my heart because I wear 12 wides. My choices seem to be men’s sneakers, or clear lucite platforms and sequined mary janes that are marketed to crossdressers. It’s even worse with my wedding coming up next month; I can’t find any beautiful grown-up shoes in my size. Can you help?

    @Elizabeth. J. Renee –whom I do not love generally because she steals other peoples’ designs– has some offerings. Here’s what I came up with using a quick Zappo’s search.

    Normally I avoid fabric treatments in footwear because they remind me of bad experiences with dye-to-match bridesmaids’ shoes. But these are so elegantly designed (especially the navy), that they must not exist in the same universe that holds lavender taffeta and bow butts.
