Delicate Shades for a new Season

One of the trends that is going strong for clothes and shoes well into early Winter and Spring is also one of my favorites- ombré. I don't know what it is but I love the delicate merging of two colors on bags and shoes, so here is a list of my favorite new pairs:

Marc Jacob Suede Mary Jane Pumps - Saks - $595

They may be a little "jazz shoe" but I love the way the silver looks as if some gorgeous powder got dusted all over the front and heels as if you were kicking up stardust.

More pretty Pradas - Patent Degrade Peep-Toe Pumps in white and quartz (taupe) - Bergdorfs - $495

And the Vernice Degrade Pump, also from Prada - Saks - $540

Above is the Bianco/Quarzo and below is Bianco/Ananas - I love the delicate taupe but think the yellow is much more striking.

I know these Prada Vernice Sfumata Mary Janes are kind of a Fall holdover but with the taupe front they would be light enough for the warmer months, especially if you need a good work shoe. Bergdorfs, $550.

These Stella McCartney Vinyl d'Orsays have a shaded heel and are very pretty with their bluish smoke grey vinyls front straps. Although I do think the price is kind of high. Neiman Marcus, $785.

Looking at the front this patent heel by Ferragamo does not seem Spring at all, but the heel totally compensates for that.

The heel treatment is just gorgeous and so unusual - almost painted looking. You can find them at Saks for $570.

Last but not least (okay, I guess it is least - the least expensive of the bunch) are my favorites - Stuart Weitzman's Sashay Peep-Toe Pumps. These are also available in black patent and fire (red) patent but I like the black/white version best. Not that this is cheap, but they are only $270 at Saks.

So pretty and a great heel shape, which I am also a sucker for.

I can't wait to mix some of these into my wardrobe. I'm not sure if it would be overkill, but I'd like to pair a blue/white gradiented dress with the Weitzman's.

You can also get those lovely Ferragamos at their flagship store in NYC, on 5th Ave and 52nd.
They also just opened their Creations salon, the only one of its kind in the US, with limited run, special collection shoes and bags reproduced from their archives in Florence. Talk to the Creations Ambassador if you can, Danielle Pollack, she's a wealth of knowledge and lets you try on gorgeous pieces that were originally designed for the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Eva Peron. NIce!
