SHOES IN CAB / AUGUST 2013

I had just come back into the big apple from a trip and it was my first night out, I felt inspired when I opened my shoe closet, and I said, why not wear out two different shoes form the same manufacturer?, same heel height but different styles, similar color, why not experiment? And as I went downtown to one of my favorite watering holes in the middle of chinatown I rocked them both till wee hours of the nite. So fun!

 

SHOE IN CAB / AUGUST 2013

 

The floor of this particular New York taxi cab had suspicious substances, so I was forced to not touch it and I had the phone in my hand to capture the moment. These Zara blue sandals reminded me of a pair of Marc Jacobs Resort 2005 collection sandals that where made in blue denim with navy 3mm pipping in patent leather, I still have them somewhere in one of my closets. Fun times were those!

SHOES IN CAB / MAY 2009

I got this pair of fab sandals when I was working in Italy at one of the best factories in the Veneto region. They where designed by Laurence Dacade for Givenchy. The leather is super soft and they are very comfortable.

SHOES IN CAB / APRIL 2009

These Balenciaga Pre Fall 2007/8 shoes have an amazing construction. The front platform shape resembles a horses hoof, which since I am horse lover myself could not resist the temptation to have them. Made in Italy of course!

These fab sandal booties are from one of my favorite all time designers Azzedine Alaia, http://www.alaia.fr.  I am wearing them with bleu royal Wolford opaque stockings. http://www.wolford.com

 

SHOES IN CAB / APRIL 2013

Last year thanks to the help of a good friend in the Italian Tuscan hills, I made a paper sketch turn into a real shoe under the label  VALBLU. These shoes are inspired by the skies star constellations, they are asymmetrical, where the left and the right shoes are different but there is a common theme that runs through them, why not right? So fun!

These Alexander McQueen shoes where painted with acrylic paint for that smooth slick texture, they have an internal platform and the toe is semi pointed, the shape is wonderful!

SHOES IN CAB / FEBRUARY 2012

I went to interview at the Zara headquarters in south of Spain and when I came back to New York, I went to Zara and purchased these wedges in this fab blue suede, and decided to paint the city skyline on the wedge with a metallic silver pen! People stop me in the street to ask me where I got these and I feel honored to tell them that I got the shoe at Zara but that I painted the skyline details on the wedge. So fun!

SHOES IN CAB / APRIL 2013


These fun wedge lace up booties where designed for the Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2006 runway, originally they were white suede, I painted them by hand with various sharpie markers, the result, vibrant blue hue. So fun!
