One of my favorite style moments from the series came in Season 4, Episode 65 - "A Vogue Idea".
Yep, I had to have them and I love them, but there was another pair I had to track down as well.
I totally pined for this Vivienne Westwood suit that Carrie wore to her meeting at Vogue as well as the perfect taupe patent slingbacks she paired with it. Check them out in action here.
I tried many other shoe hopefuls but I never found a good candidate. Then one day I saw the following on the Saks website. The are the Manolo Blahnik "Nesti" slingbacks. Not quite the same shape and a bit pointier but perfect color, slingback and heel. I was so excited!
But then I found out they were exclusive to Saks and they had not purchased my size... Oh Noes!!!
I called the buyer, the Manolo Blahnik rep, was going to special order a pair through the store... a real Shoe Search. The Saks folks were great and helpful and even offered me a deal on another pair of Blahniks. As I was mulling this over several weeks, my luck changed. They did end up getting my size and the coveted shoes were mine!
This Saks exclusive is still available. If you need a shoe that will go with everything, check them out.
