Something Old, Something New, Something Changed... it's not Blue?

Everyone remembers the other big character in the SATC movie. No, not New York! I'm talking about the Manolo Blahnik Hangisi "Something Blue" satin and rhinestone pumps.



You had to know that a heel that got this much attention and was so popular, wasn't going be a one time shot. Okay, maybe you knew that. I thought Manolo would just integrate elements like the new heel design done for the piece, because I was totally stopped in my tracks when I saw the shoe in new colors on the Barney's site.

Black -



and Yellow -




The black is elegant but so safe (yawn!) and I like the yellow but it's not as contrast-y as I would like it. Of course, I'm still in love with my blues. They are just an amazing color and you can't help but stare at them.



I would love this in a dusky grey-lavender or even a icy white. Maybe even a flashy hot pink. What colors would you have picked?

A pearl grey/lavender color would be LOVELY. But seriously Manolo - could you not give us a green!?!? Hehe!!

Hot pink certainly! Or a lovely true purple would be beautiful. There's something about jewel tones that works so well with this heel...

Blue with no doubt.

I love the blue also, I think this shoe requires a more vibrant color. Like you said black is to safe and I think that the yellow is too pale.

my thing with the shoe is that in the movie carrie says they are 5 something, but in reality the shoes are costing 9 something.

Oh yes, they totally changed the price but the price she has was probably right when they filmed it. Actually, over the course of a few days I saw the price shift on the websites several times. I even too screen grabs!
