Happy Thursday!
The weekend’s almost here…can’t you taste it!?!
Anyway spectator pumps and booties (menswear inspired oxford shoes with a heel), have come from the 1920’s and landed smack on the runways of the Fall 2007 Ready to Wear Shows:

9-1


Reyes


Betsey Johnson

Zac Posen
Tons of stores are offering high and low priced options for the fall:

Top Row: Bally ‘Glania’ Pump, $595, www.nordstrom.com; Lumiana Epic, $150, zappos.com
Patent-leather-and-suede pump, Charles David, $345, www.charlesdavid.com for stores.
Middle Row: Eva High Heel Lace Up Platform Booties, $635, www.gucci.com; Spectator Platform Oxford, $59, www.spiegel.com; Ruffled pump, Miu Miu, $525, 888-977-1900.
Bottom Row: Lace-up perforated pump, Bebe, $159, www.bebe.com for stores; Spectator bootie, $79, www.victoriassecret.com; Flannel-and-patent-leather bootie, Stuart Weitzman, $299, www.neimanmarcus.com.

They seem sorta cute, but I’m not too sure how I feel about them. Looking at the pickings (and prices!), I’m wondering if they’ll look as good on as they do on the runway…or be worth the bling.
Thoughts?
Smootches!
