Alexander McQueen did them, Lady Gaga rocks them, Victoria Beckham made a statement of them, but are the latest trend of extreme heels translating well into real life wear?
By real life wear I mean non celebrities, non top models. The past weekend gave me some insights. Although 7 inch heels look mega hot in magazines and on celebrities, they don’t look so hot on girls sporting them on a Saturday night in short mini skirts. Not only do they look like they should be in pretty woman, they can barely walk 5 metres in them. I’m sure these girls think they look mega hot but for those who watch them thumping around trying to lift one foot in front of the other it’s mega not hot . If you can’t walk in them, chances are your nit suppose to be wearing them. Instead of looking uber fashionable it just makes them look stupid.
Personally I’d like to not suffer with blistered toes and back pain. Mega high heels – are they your friend or your foe?
Despite the reviews, I enjoyed the Sex and the City 2 movie. I’m not sure what people where expecting but surely nothing epic nor that the “girls” would stay single, desperate and in New York forever. Yes, it wasn’t Oscar winning screen writing, but who can take away that SATC sets fashion trends. And not to mention the copies of every dress, bag and shoe will become available online and in stores soon.
The opening scene just set the tone of how fabulous the fashion was going to be. Carrie walking out in the classic gold glittery Christian Louboutins.
I love this entire outfit. It’s simple, elegant and I personally don’t think it’s a look that goes out of fashion.
The second pair of shoes that are stunning (and the Galliano for Dior newspaper dress) are these black floral, laced detailed peep toe ankle boots.
This outfit was featured in the TV series but the outfit is compelling and i just wish i could wear an outfit just like it every saturday night. But, i doubt i will ever be able to pull this off, yet alone make it 10 metres down the street in these killer heels without ending up face first in the road with a grazed face.
I also really loved the black and gold shoes Samantha wears when she is shopping for her red carpet dress with Carrie. But, i can seem to find a picture or any information anywhere. If you find who they are by please tell me!
And can we not forget Miranda’s dress at the wedding? Can we talk about how that is THE dress? I have to say, this dress…. it stole the show. No shoe, or Samantha’s Birkin bag could top this.
Which is your favourite outfit from the movie?
Tomorrow is a HUGE day for fashionistas and single ladies looking for their Mr Big. Sex and the City 2 is in movie theaters from tomorrow (in Australia). Women have laughed, cried and shared a moment with “the girls” during the series and the first movie, and for me some of the BEST moments have been around Carrie and her shoes. Who could forget the episoide ” A Woman’s Right to Shoes” where Carries Manolo Blahnik’s are stolen? I guess when people have children their priorities on spending money change – for me, I hope I never have to down grade the shoe collection. I actually hope as i get a bit older, have a better career and earn more money, my shoe collection just gets more expensive and indulgent!
The stolen shoes are called Sedaraby by Manolo Blahnik. I have seen many copies of this shoe but nothing can compare to the real deal. I can’t wait to own a pair of Manolo Blahniks but I am yet to find anything that i 100% love and know that I will wear (so i can justify the price to myself). But, if any of you out there have the real deal, i’d love you to show me.
