  • Manolo Blahnik Spring Preview 2010 & The World’s Largest Shoe Department

    These shoes are so gorgeous, it’s like shoe porn!!!!

    If you know me, you would understand what a shoe freak I am, so this post was pure delight! I worked in Delman, the fancy ladies shoe salon at Bergdorf Goodman in NY back in the early 80′s where gorgeous shoes were part of design.

    If you don’t know me, just ask Sharon and she can share some mutual shoe drool stories with you– starting with the time that I found her the most incredible fuchsia, ankle wrap Charles Jourdan disco heels! On second thought, maybe you shouldn’t ask…

    To make all you shoe fanatics jealous, I had the distinct pleasure of attending two major shoe events in the same day- the Manolo Blahnik spring preview and the unveiling of the world’s largest shoe department at Galeries Lafayette, Paris.

    The collection was a knockout with high sexy feminine heels and brimming with all the gorgeous color combinations that Manolo is famous for.
