SOS!! All belles on deck!! We are putting out an APB for a replacement for one belle’s all-time favorite shoe!!
Exhibit A…on the right…is one 5-year-old Fendi – the apple of momma’s eye – so stunningly simple and beautiful that both belles purchased a pair while on a joint shopping jaunt way back when – so beloved that one belle had to talk herself out of wearing them every single chance she got (give the other girls a chance, momma!)
Until…5-year-old Fendi met 3-year-old Lily, the Golden Retriever who is extremely lucky she is so doggone cute and sweet…and is therefore still alive. After some hysterics, this belle did the only thing she could think to do. She commenced to shopping, scouring every website her little fingers could hammer out. Alas, no exact replacement found.
Enter Exhibit B…on the left…one vintage Jimmy Choo found at the “vintage/resale” site The Real Real. While seemingly nowhere near a logical replacement for poor little Fendi, Jimmy Choo actually possesses some qualities which just might do the trick (at least in some situations). Barely there and somewhat of a neutral color, Jimmy is just gonna have to do in a pinch!
In the meantime, we belles have contacted Fendi with a plea for help…and would love your input…
We are loving the lush fabrics and colors of some of the items we have our eye on this fall! Intermix has some of our favorites…
1 – Nicholas Deep V Wallpaper dress
2 – Frame Le Velvet blazer
3 – Erickson Beamon Sage Multi Circle earrings
4 – Elizabeth Cole Multi Floral earrings
5 – Kenneth Jay Lane crystal cocktail ring
6 – Jimmy Choo Lacey 100 velvet pumps
You. Need. Them. All!!
Here are the shoes that have caught our eye lately. Some even already have a place in our closet….just sayin’…
We love this subtly sexy Slides from Nasty Gal . Perfect spring uniform material
Mules are back in with a vengeance ! We love that these are a great heel height, a on trend neutral , and a clever tassel embellishment! From Saks
We melt for these Sandals….horn inspired buckle, supple suede in a mouthwatering color ( that is really a neutral) , a sexy ankle strap and the of the moment block heel make this Shoe sheer perfection! From Saks
A wedge and an Espadrille in one beautiful Shoe ! Talk about multitasking!!! From Saks
Oh Jimmy. , you always do right by us. The color, the heel , the tie…these sandals are Everything…..just sayin… From Saks

We’ve been helping a dear belle-friend get her closet in order after three moves and three years of being “unsettled” (poor dear). In the process, we realized that every belle could be reminded of what we deem to be the shoe collection top ten. In other words…the ten pairs of shoes that we couldn’t live without.
If you have ’em all, you’re a savvy belle (or a shoe hoarder…takes one to know one…just sayin’). If you don’t have ’em, we’ve given you some options so that you can fill those holes, pronto!
We started at our favorite local shoe haunt, Muse Shoe Studio, with some picks to fill every belle’s needs…and we’ve added some online options for our far-flung friends…
And this Christian Louboutin “simple pump” is a high-end no-brainier (its price-per-wear will make it a bargain!) Find it HERE.
And the Louboutin “simple pump” also comes in nude…just sayin’ ( at Nordstrom)
Above…this metallic, strappy Pelle Moda from Muse adds a bit of bling to your festivities.
And the Jimmy Choo “Lang” (find it HERE) is another great (albeit more pricey) choice
4. A fun print
and we have been long-time fans of the calf-hair, animal-print “Elsie” pump from J Crew. Pretty indispensable in our book!
5. A ballet flat
The quintessential staple for any stylish belle, this Vanelli (above) from Muse combines a bit of brown with the basic black for extra versatility .
We are quite partial to this little beauty as well….may even have to get it in all three colors!! Order here now for 20%off!!
Muse has an incredible selection in this category! Wish we could include them all! This basic bootie combines that of-the-moment shape with a comfortable heel-height and classic black. You can also find it here.
8. A sleek, all-weather street boot
We’ve sung the praises of Aquatalia boots before, belles…and we will do it again and again! This “Gael” all-weather riding boot will be a staple till the cows come home! (We’ve been known to wear ours every…single…day while on trips to NYC, Paris, Chicago…). Absolute perfection!
For walking the pups in style…or just surviving in this rain-soaked home we used to call the “sunny (hot, muggy) South”, this Sam Edelman bootie from Muse will keep you dry and happy. You can also order it here.
And the “Original Tall” Hunter boot ( find it here) is a classic…and perfect for entertaining yourself by jumping in puddles (we have experience 😉
10. A neutral sandal
Tory Burch offers great options each year. The Kieran is a favorite of the belles.
And this Gucci “Marmont” stunner…of a sandal will ring belles for years to come
Inventory time, belles!! Let us know if you have any additions. Wouldn’t want to miss out!
