SEX & THE CITY SHOE THERAPY CONTEST: JASON CAMPBELL SAYS

 

ENTER THE S&TC SHOE THERAPY CONTEST NOW TO WIN A PAIR OF EILEEN SHIELD’S AND A COMFORT PACK FROM Dr. Scholls For HER.

JUST LOG A FUN COMMENT ON THIS POST BELOW — DID YOU EVER HAVE A FAVORITE PAIR OF SHOES RUINED? -AND YOU WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY ENTERED.

S&TC FAVORITE SHOE MOMENT

Favorite moment number two is when Carrie has a fabulous new pair of Christian Louboutin’s — hot pink Stiletto sandals with a feather.  She is sailing around Central Park with Big and gets a call from Miranda — she’s in labor.  Carrie rushes to the hospital, and Miranda’s water breaks  . . . right on her new Louboutins. A pair of shoes has died, but a baby is born.

We asked the ever-major Jason Campbell, Editor in Chief of esteemed style bulletin, JCREPORT, if he had ever had a favorite pair of shoes ruined and here’s what he had to say:

“I had a gorgeous paid of sand-colored Dries Van Noten canvas shoes and on a jaunty stroll in Brazil a pigeon relieved itself on these most prized possession. I was gutted but thankfully I have nearly 100 pair of shoes in my footwear arsenal. There’s always another option. But I really do love those Dries lace ups, I’ve never seen them anywhere else.  In fact I still have the shoes with the plans to dye them to camouflage that oh so unpleasant spot de merde.”

DESIGNER PROFILE OF THE WEEK

I first was introduced to shoe designer Eileen Shields about four years ago.  This Irish lass makes fantastic creations, in gorgeous leathers, and continues to innovate every season with new shapes and forms.  Her T-strap mary jane, also known as the Juliette, has become a ubiquitous fashion staple among Hollywood elite from Halle Berry and Drew Barrymore, and she was commissioned personally by Stiletto-lover Eva Longoria herself to create a shoe for her character in Desperate Housewives. (It’s the sassy shoe you see a picture of above).  Spring 08 is gorgeous platforms with cutout peep-toes, lucite heels and elegant strappy sandals in materials like mirror platinums and rich suedes, with pitch-perfect detailing from a feather to a twisted leather bow.  We look forward to Fall with baited breath.

    Note to self: don’t ever wear your favorite heels out on a night where you might be likely to scuff them up or break them after a few cocktails with some crazy friends with even crazier ideas of fun, like scaling this fence even though we could walk around it! Very likely scenario result of your heel strap breaking and then you can’t walk in them for the rest of the night :)

    Hm. Ruined, no. Retired, yes.

    Long ago when I worked in PR at a Catholic hospital (picture St. Elsewhere, but in Pennsylvania), I wore conservative suits (it was the 80s, so picture shoulder pads and piping) but I teamed them with a pair of ankle strap Capezios in red, red, suede. They were that most elusive of combinations: comfortable AND sexy.

    And then one day, my boss called me in and said, uncomfortably, that some of the staff (read: nuns and doctors) were uncomfortable with my shoes.

    “Uncomfortable?”

    My boss didn’t like telling me this any more than I liked hearing it. So I took the hint, and bought a pair of ugly black pumps-the closest I could get to nun shoes–and began wearing them the next day. My boss never had to talk to me about my shoes again…but I soon left to work at a high-tech university. Where some of the most brilliant professors walked around in their socks. My red shoes, once banished, re-emerged. Reborn.

    “They think they’re not appropriate.”

  3. Martha Says:

    Ack…so do ignore that last sentence, eh?

  4. Julissa "Please Pick Me" D. Says:

    I actually didn’t have a favorite pair ruined because I try very hard to be very careful but I actually lost the right shoe to one of my pairs not a favorite. Like Carries, I don’t like to play favorites with my shoes.

    Ha ha ha… I know what you’re thinking, how did I lose one shoe?

    Well, I was at the movies watching “I can’t remember what” and had the shoes in a bag. When I got home at night I only came back with the left shoes. I was devastated! Prior to that, I had those same shoes with me and left them at a bar. I realized that I had left them mid-way on the train ride home. I got off on the next stop and took the train back downtown. They were exactly were I left them… thank God!!! But like you just previously read, I lost one of them anyway (sad face)

    I guess I was never meant to have the shoes!
    I do still have the left shoe at home, in the back of my closet(I don’t want to be reminded of the painful memories). I find it so hard to let it go! =(

    “I should have known better”
    My beautiful purple suede shoes looked so fabulous, I just had to wear them..despite the clouds on the horizon..they looked phenomenal too, alas when we walked out of an Italian restaurant hours later, the awful downpour had arrived and my poor shoes were subjected to a painful blow by a puddle.. It was a sad time.
    Again..”I should have known better.”

  6. Susan Says:

    I bought some beautiful, very expensive Fenaroli ivory satin shoes for my wedding 5 years ago. I justified the expense of these wear-them-one-time-only shoes by saying I would dye them black afterwards. They were wonderfully comfortable, too. BUT. I did not have the heart to dye them black, they are such a beautiful ivory satin color. They are still wrapped up in my closet. So…I didn’t exactly ruin them, but they will never be worn again, unless I can think of some outfit that warrants ivory satin shoes, or I get the nerve to actually dye them a practical color!

  7. Tanya Diggs Says:

    I had recently bought a cute pair of black ankle boots. A good friend asked me to be hostess at one of his networking functions.
    Well I was also decorator, lo and behold I am crawling around on the floor framing his celebrity pictures. All of a sudden I look down to my shock and utter disgust I’d scuffed and scratched my new boots. Needless to say I was pissed!!!! Anyone who knows me understands I like to keep all my precious belongings crisp and pristine, to the best of my ability. Well I guess that ship has sailed regarding my cute boots. Although it was all in a nights work I was really glad to be there for my friend, still and all the little bratty girl inside was still teensy bit pissed. AHH! WELL! What’cha gonna do? Thank God for Shoe Designers everywhere!!!!

  8. Heelz Says:

    I bought two pair of Stuart Weitzman – a red pair and a yellow pair. Loved the Shoes. Wore the red shoes all of the time – drove in them walked in them – lot of pleasure wearing the shoes.

    Saved the yellow shoes for a special function. I dressed in yellow, put on my shoes and headed to the function. I know I was looking GREAT! Well, when I got out of the car and headed inside I was stopped – EXCUSE ME, YOU HAVE SOMETHING ON YOUR SHOE. I looked at the back of my shoe and all of the yellow leather finish was gone from the driving shoe – IT WAS BLACK! I was devastated. Never got a chance to enjoy the shoes. I had them dyed repeatedly – always looked bad – bumpy, weird.

    However, this was an inspiration because from there I developed a product called the Heel Shield which when slipped on the shoe just prior to driving prevents ever having BLACK HEEL again.

  9. Natasha Holstine Says:

    I still remember my first Prada’s that I purchased at the New Jersey Outlet stores for only $75! I was so proud of those shoes…I wore them all of the time on the streets of New York from day to night…one night, I wore them out with a fabulous ensemble that I put together, got terribly drunk and decided to take the subway home…well, I on my walk down the stairs, I happened to start slipping and broke the heel…I tried to wait for the subway, but gave up and went for a cab instead…through the whole ordeal, I kept the heel and had it put back on:) I couldn’t lose these favorites of mine…a couple of months ago, I wore the heels, now in Tucson, AZ and ACCIDENTALLY stepped on and killed a lizard…I haven’t worn the Prada’s again…it is funny what it takes to let a shoe go.

  10. Fashion Under $100 Says:

    Just this past weekend, I went to a wedding in the historical section of Philadelphia, where all the streets and sidewalks are cobblestones. I was wearing a gorgeous pair of teal satin strappy sandals with my black dress, and as I left the reception hall at the end of the night, my heel got caught in the crevice between two cobblestones and snapped.

    It was the first (and last) time I wore those shoes.

  11. Erin Says:

    I learned the valuable lesson of not abusing the open bar at a wedding when I decided MANY cocktails into the night I would just walk home. I live in the burbs so while it was only about 1.5 miles walking in the middle of the night was not only stupid but I broke the heel of my favorite pair of heels. I still miss them to this day.

  12. Jennifer Says:

    As you know, it’s a bad idea to text message while driving. Did you ever consider that it may be a bad idea to text while walking as well??

    I was wearing a sweet pair of Pollini stilettos while walking through a parking lot, when suddenly WHAM, I stubbed my toe hard and lurched forward. I managed to stay upright but the entire front half of my Pollini fell victim to one of those concrete trapezoids they put at the end of parking spots. Ouch! The sad thing is, I got those $600 shoes on sale for $100 but the repair would probably be nearly as much!

  13. Geri Says:

    Actually, yes. I had a pair of super comfy flats get ruined after a rodent got into my house after some home repairs. :(

  14. Gayvin Says:

    Back in my high school days, so long ago, I remember that I had bought a pair of black shoes that I wore with EVERYTHING. In high school, there was little in my bank account, and I didn’t have a shoe fund, like Carrie Bradshaw. So these shoes were special!

    Needless to say, I was walking home and we decided to go down a monstrous hill that reaches (what seems like) an 80 degree incline.

    We started walking down the hill and I felt my black shoes slip. “They’ll be okay,” I thought, looking at the tractionless sole on my shoes.

    Next thing I knew, my special, go-with-anything black shoes were sliding down the face of this hill with me in them! By the time I reached half way down the hill, I saw what waited me below was an intercetion of cars.

    Before I reached the cars, I completely bit it, knees and face first on the cement.

    When I got up, my hands were filled with gravel, my knees were bleeding, and (perhaps worst than the rest) my coveted shoes had gashes.

    It’s quite a way to go, but that was the last adventure of my coveted black shoes.

  15. Tanya Says:

    I have (had) a favorite pair of Nicole Miller heels they were majestic. Patten leather baby pink..beautiful ..needless to say I was traveling on a business trip and had my luggage lost. I cringe every time I think about it, my luggage was never found (uggh) I got reimbursed but I wasn’t able to recoup that lost..I am still in morning (lol) as you can see..

    Note to self: when Traveling take your shoe’s in a carry on luggage…

  16. Jocelyne Gonzalez Says:

    Walking down an New york city street and the shoe gets stuck in one of the thousands of holes that the sidewalk has. Broke the darn heel. Im still upset.

  17. Tara Says:

    I actually have a pair of shoes now, Franco Sarto’s that are ruined. Just too much wear and tear.

  18. Nancy Says:

    I feel comfortable in my Nine West Jasmaria. The footbed is lightly padded; the straps look chic; and the stiletto heels makes me feel very sexy, especially in my Jessica knit top and skirt.

  19. Alena Says:

    Yes, I was walking outside wearing heels that I absolutely loved and a gust of wind blew a prescription out of my hand so I ran after it and the front of my shoe ripped out :(

  20. Jennifer Says:

    So, who won this contest???

  21. Lucy Says:

    Ruined, surprisingly no.
    Peed on :(
    My favourite pair of shoes, okay so they only cost like 4 quid but for some reason i just loved them. They were flat sparkly silver, with a silver buckle at the front. I brought them from Paris that year and the most amazing thing about them is i had a matching bag. It was a wonderful combo. Then one day i left them lying around as usual and when i come home from school, turns out my dog has taken them up the garden. I know terrible, but i gets worse. I go up the garden to retrieve the shoes and there in the left one a puddle of pee. I was devestated. The bag just didnt look the same without them. So the shoes went in the bin and the bag went on ebay.
