S&TC FAVORITE SHOE MOMENT

One of our favorite shoe moments in Sex & the City (the series), is when Carrie is asked to be in the fabulous fashion show at the Bryant Park tents. Backstage as she is getting makeuped and wardrobed, the stylist has a pair of giant platform Stilettos on the floor. Carrie sees them and boldly says, “You can go ahead and put me in the big girl shoes. No problem.” Out on the runway, Carrie wipes out. But after a moment of silence, she picks herself back up — to a round of giant applause.

This week’s question is have you ever had to step into some big shoes? We asked eminent celeb correspondent Elizabeth Snead of LATIMES crazy-popular blog the Dishrag, and here’s what she had to say:

“The only time I ever feel like I have big shoes to fill is when I am constantly spraining my ankles in heels and platforms on cobblestone streets in Paris covering the collections — it’s an ongoing battle to keep in step with fashion and not kill yourself in the process!”

Girl, we hear you. Maybe the question of the week should be, what lengths have you gone to to wear hot shoes?

DESIGNER PROFILE OF THE WEEK

Designer Rene Huber launched her eponymous bag line Goldenbleu in May of 2004. Tired of the bags she was seeing in the marketplace, and inspired by couture details from a fur coat collar to rich luxurious leathers and hardware, Rene started designing ripstop nylon prototypes of what she thought the ultimate bag would look like — and was getting stopped on the street every time she wore the sample outside. The attention she was getting on the street convinced her there was a viable business in there somewhere — and when her first buttery soft ruched clutches, hobos and totes debuted they were quickly snapped up by celebs from Nicole Richie and Lindsay Lohan to Teri Hatcher and Eva Longoria and became must-haves on every editor’s list, Fast forward to Spring 2007 when Goldenbleu launched their very first shoe line, full of organic shapes and punchy colors that do not disappoint.

    I’ve never spent more than $200 on a pair, but that’s probably because I live in the Buffalo, NY area and you can’t find shoes over $200. However, I have bought multiple pairs of shoes online in the same style and color, just in different sizes so I could try them all on and pick the size that fits best. Then I sent all the others back. And yes, sometimes I do hide them when I get them home. :-)

    When I graduated from college, I wanted to stand out with a fabulous pair of heels to go along with the traditional black cape and my festive party frock – all the other girls were wearing plain flip flops or generic black heels, but no! I wanted to wear these fabulous linen stilletos with a bow on the front. Linen unfortunately also does not break in as fast as leather, and so mid-ceremony my feet were already hurting, but goodness I walked proudly across that stage! For the rest of the day though, I had to stand at my own graduation party, but was determined to keep the heels on to complete the outfit – some nicely placed emergency tape all over my feet helped so that I could remain fab in my heels through it all! Pain is worth it – I will be in my heels until the day I no longer can walk.

    I’ve never really stepped in to fill anyone’s big shoes (except my own size 10s!) but several years ago I did “have to have” a pair of Isabella Fiore pumps that I saw at Saks–red, gray and black wool plaid with brown leather heels and a sequined flower, and the most expensive shoes I’d ever bought to that point–and I wore them to an art opening in Denver, which was followed by dinner at a loft a few blocks from the museum. Mind you, the heel on my only other pair of shoes–the ones I wore on the flight to Denver–had broken as I got off the plane, so these were it. I was in such blinding pain walking those few blocks that had I been alone I’d have taken them off and walked the city streets barefoot. As it was, my toes were numb for weeks after. As beautiful as they are, I’ve never really worn them since. Always, ALWAYS carry ballet flats in your purse when wearing heels. It’s the only way.

    I don’t think I can walk in “BIG SHOES”

  6. bunny Says:

    Oh my! The lengths I’d go to to wear hot shoes? Well, I certainly will endure getting pains and blisters for a few hours in stunning shoes and even if it is a bit too small for me.

  7. Whitney Larson Says:

    I quite literally had to step into BIG shoes once, and only once mind you. I was playing the role of a dutch doll in a production in grade school and had to wear *yikes*…wooden clog shoes, it was dreadful. I played the role but will forever despise those big awful shoes, I do not envy the dutch.

  8. Liz Tausner Says:

    I admit I was a sucker for some BIG Prada metallic loafers 2 sizes too large for my feet on clearance @ Marshall Fields Oval Room in Chicago, because I just couldn’t say no. I have to wear superthick socks and my straight jeans, but then am good to go. Of course I think they’re still the bomb!

  9. Catherine O'Brien Says:

    Having always loved beautiful shoes, designer when I could afford them and having been a dancer would never ever take off my shoes at a function especially if there was dancing even if my feet ached. Consequently,
    I’ve just had to have foot surgery just so I can wear those beautiful shoes again. I refuse to resort to flip flops and sneakers.

    I never had to step in big shoes but I did wear strappy sandals to my prom and walking down the stairs both heels broke so I went barefoot the rest of the night. However I started a trend and all the gorls were kicking off their shoes and dancing barefoot.

    My boyfriend and I were on holiday and he’d bought tickets to see Goldfinger & Reel Big Fish in concert, he was going with his friends but I tagged along. There was no way I was going out and looking like a bogan so I wore these beautiful black patent leather stilettos, to which my b/f exclaimed ‘you can’t mosh in heels!’ but I didn’t care, I wanted to look fabulous! At the end of Goldfinger’s set my b/f and his best mate thought it would be hilarious to teach me a lesson, they picked me up and threw me on top of the crowd – I actually crowd surfed for about 5 minutes but in the process I lost one of my beloved shoes… When security helped me down I was devastated I sobbed at my b/f that it was all his fault and sulked in the toilets for a while. When I eventually came out I started my hunt for my lost shoe, after asking almost every loser in the joint I turned around and like a sign from heaven, there was my lovely shoe sitting on the middle of an empty table! Some wonderful person had left it there for me, I was so happy to have it back! My boyfriend never lets me forget about it, and I still wear the shoes! They’re even more special now!

    Many years ago, I bought a pair of great avant-garde Costume National brown knee high boots — for a small fraction of their original price. They were very cool but several sizes too big and quite heavy. I literally felt like I was dragging them around NYC (on my feet), but I persisted in wearing them for their “giant” cool quotient.

    Incidentally, they definitely made me look like I had expansionary ambitions… a la 1939.

    Eventually, it got to be too much… and I had no choice but to relegate them to multi-sock snow patrol.

  13. Stephanie Parker Says:

    My shoes were not BIG enough for my x-boy friend. It didn’t keep him from trying, hence X. No messing with my shoes boys!

  14. Tanya Says:

    My girlfriend gave these great pair of silver metalic 4 inch heels beautful….Well recently I had an event to go to & decided to get all dolled up & wear my new shoes. I had put some lotion on my feet and noticed that they kept slipping off..(fine, I thought it’s because of the lotion) I’m at the event and realized that every time I was walking the damn shoe was nearly slipping off…
    That’s when I realized it wasn’t the lotion the shoes were just too big…lol Needless to say my NY strut was reduced to mini geisha steps….

    I still have them…(deep sigh) but I haven’t worn them since then..
