WEEKEND UPDATE

Designer Shoes

1. From the responses and messages I received on my Gucci Marmont review, it seems like quite a few of you have been buying Gucci flats and loafers lately. As I stated, I love my Marmonts, and recently added this “Frame” style, in pink suede.

I’m not a pink person usually, and own very few items of pink clothing, but these loafers just seemed so fun and bright for summer.  I promise, the color is even prettier in real life! I think they’ll look great with white shorts, casual denim…quite versatile, and the color makes them young and fun.

2. I thought this article on three days at Baselworld, via The NY Times, was quite interesting (and I’m not even really a watch person!). Lots of good tidbits and the writer has a sense of humor, too. The new Rolex Daytona is pretty fantastic looking, in my opinion.

3. I loved this gossipy little article, via The Hollywood Reporter, featuring tales from the Four Seasons restaurantin New York.

4. For those looking for a long but interesting read, I’d like to recommend this update on the Sumner Redstone inheritance battle/saga – Hostage to Fortune, via Vanity Fair. Its truly a fascinating story and it makes you wonder what Sumner truly wants…and whether that’s still the right thing to do. Would 85 year old Sumner want the same thing as 92 year old Sumner now? For a brief primer on the whole situation, I’d first read this piece, Who Controls Sumner Redstone?

5. This week I finished the fascinating, and often hilarious Disrupted, by Dan Lyons.

Disrupted

If you’ve ever watched Office Space, or Silicon Valley the show, you will like this book. My only beef is that sometimes Lyons seems to have too much of a personal vendetta against certain people – he’s plays the victim more than he needs to. Its a shame because he doesn’t need to – the crazy situations and ridiculous people he’s working with are more than enough to elicit sympathy for Lyons. But its a smaller quibble, and Disrupted was still incredibly engaging. I couldn’t put it down. Highly recommended – especially if you work in Silicon Valley, and have to deal with some of the types described in the book (the “founder”, the “visionary”, the “VC”).

Top Fur Shoes: I’m Fur Real

Designer Shoes

Top Fur Shoes

My sentiments for fur shoes differ greatly from fur bags. Think about it: Your wallet doesn’t get cold – but your feet do. That’s why fur shoes are a big SNOB for me. During Fashion Month not too long ago, no shoe was more visible than the furry soft Gucci loafer (in many variations), despite the simmering 90-degree temperatures in New York City. Here’s the best of the fresh fur crop:

1.Does it get more decadent than slipping your bare, hopefully newly pedicured foot into this tuft of lush fur? I think not.

2.Glistening jacquard trimmed with a band of mink makes me feel like Anna Karenina, minus the heartbreak.

3. Your feet may not feel the tactile pleasure of this fur, but it’s all about looks here, and this ankle boot will have you looking ready to brave the winter chill.

4. Impractical these shearling-trimmed slide sandals may be; then again, they’re the ultimate off-duty shoe for chilling out.

5. You’ll be kicking up your heels, stat, with Rochas’ luxe Mary Janes, exuding pure evening glamour.

7. Ever so slightly reminiscent of boudoir slippers, these furry, baby pink sandals are ready to come out and play.

8.Spotted feathers and delicate bows add soft sensuality to these already girly heels.

9. When the temps dip, you’d never think of leaving home without a thick coat or parka. Give your feet to the same cozy treatment!
