Rebecca Taylor Steps, Stomps, and Struts into the Shoe World
It's about time! After swathing ladies in the most feminine and coquettish frocks, designer Rebecca Taylor just launched a new accessories collection this month consisting of shoes and jewelry pieces with an uptown-meets-downtown girl vibe.
Her first shoe collection (which came to fruition thanks to a partnership with the Peter Marcus Group, a company known for producing high-quality shoes for luxury brands) is simply dazzling. Wood stacked heels, perforated leather, and sumptuous suede and leather fabrics all point to Rebecca Taylor's insistence on sophisticated materials and flawless design execution, while the silhouettes and motifs themselves speak to her modern interpretation of femininity and sensuality.
Pictured above are two of my favorite shoe styles. The Celia Bootie (Which was clearly named after me! Okay, it really wasn't — though the fact that I love them so must mean that, on a subconscious level, Taylor was thinking about sassy lil' me when designing them… Or maybe it's a complete coincidence! lol ) is my absolute dream boot for spring. It features rectangular perforations throughout which become larger in size as the eye moves from the sole to the ankle, and are offset by the oblong-shaped strip along the middle of the shoe, which features smaller, more dainty perforations. The side zipper closure adds a tough, dominatrix-ish vibe to the boots, while the stacked wooden heel and open toe bestow a chic but girly flair. The Celia Booties are available in a bluebell suede (like the pair pictured at top) or in a platinum or nude leather.
I also love the spicy gold-toned T-strap sandals pictured second from top, which also feature interesting cut-out shapes and a wooden heel. Something about these sandals just makes me feel like dancing!
The Celia Booties are currently available at ShopSheBoutique.com (see below for credit info), while the T-strap sandals should be rolling into stores shortly!
