Saturday Shoe Shopping

One of my favorite things in the world to do is to go to Northpark Mall with my mom and sister, have lunch at the Neiman Marcus mermaid bar, and shoe-shop maniacally. I was really excited when Stacey (the shoe fairy) called us to tell us the new Proenza boots were in…I've been dying to see them. I wore the Proenza pumps at a shoot for Elle…

Jane-day

And fell in love with them. But I had a hunch the boots would be ten times cuter…

We headed into town Saturday morning to check them out.
I figured shoe-shopping was the perfect occasion to debut these drop-dead ridiculous Margiela boots I got last month in New York… 

Half-mesh half-leather knee boots. They are mind boggling. I feel like the luckiest shoe-lover in the world for getting these…I got them at the basement sale at the If boutique, and they were $180…in my size!! 

I figured these boots were so weird that they needed an even weirder skirt to top them. My mom gets all the credit for finding this gem…

This hand-painted leather skirt is vintage Adolfo, my mom found it on eBay. How does this skirt make you feel? I think that frog looks a little creepy…hugging that log just a little too close, know what I mean? So funny that it's Adolfo..that was Nancy Reagan's favorite. I would like to see Nancy Reagan in this skirt.

My mom kept trying to tell me that the log was in fact a cinnamon stick. What the hell? Hahaha

Keeping it dorky with a Velma turtleneck. 
On to the shoe shopping…

!!!!!!

Mom tries them on…oh yes! It's a must-have. I debate briefly whether to get a mid-calf verson of this shoe. It's a very slick plain black boot with white piping instead of yellow. I opted for this version instead. It had more of a ski-boot feel, and I love the lace-up action and repetitive spectator detailing. 


Mom couldn't resist this Louboutin ankle boot either. Gotta love leopard pony hair.

Carol always ditches my mom and me when we shoe-shop…she'd rather check out cake molds and egg beaters at William Sinoma. We caught up to have a long lunch at the Mermaid Bar…

Loved mom's outfit on Saturday…

She got this kilt at the If basment sale too…we really did find the most amazing things that day. She's wearing a vintage Christopher Ross belt with it, and some really hardcore Gucci boots. The leather on them is industrial-strength!!

What a lovely day that was.

And I am so in love with these boots…

And so is Denise.

    Ahh your mum’s boots are divine! And my mum has a skirt just like the one you’re wearing, several in fact. She gets them from this amazing local designer here, and one has a picture of a little girl and a baby deer, it’s so Heidi it’s not even funny. :D

    I fell in love with those Proenza Schouler booties ever since I saw their Fall 2009 collection at the beginning of the year. I’ve been waiting for them ever since, but they are so hard to find (whether it’s websites that ship to Canada or stores in my city)! I guess I now know that Neiman Marcus carries them… though I didn’t see them on the website. I’ll keep looking. GREAT BUY, those shoes, and good choice. :)

    And those Proenza Schouler boots are just FANTASTIC. Probably my favorite shoes you’ve posted about since the Ann Demeulemeester lace ups (which i now own thank you very much, haha)
    I have a feeling that if I ever come across those Proenzas in my size, they’ll be coming home with me.
    Thanks for the inspiration! Keep it up!

    what size did you get those margiela boots in?!? i was “should i get them? or no?” in the size 39 at the IF sale (they were the only pair left), and eventually left them there b/c i got a bunch of other things, but i couldn’t stop thinking about them so i called the next day and they said someone got them that night! anyway would be funny if it was you.

    I must admit this outfit somehow works – or maybe it’s that YOU work it. Either its killer. I really wanted the ballet flat version of those boots from Yoox but it sold out JUST as I was buying it :(

    I loved your whole outfit, slightly crazy of course! But I think you’re probably one of the only people who could carry it off. Love the monochrome sixties style boots.
    And those Lanvins you got? So gorgeous. I really like the way the yellow piping highlights what be a quite classic shoe shape otherwise.
    Great shots of them at the end.
    Anyway, I’ve just finished a project- designing outfits for ten bloggers, inspired by their personal style. You were one of them! (For obvious reasons.)
    I’ll be emailing you a picture and scan of the designs tomorrow, but I only have time to leave a quick comment now. I did a post of all of the designs on my blog, hope you’ll take a quick look..

    honestly i don’t see the appeal in this site.. all you do is gloat about the packs of new clothes and shoes that you get every day and then claim that stuff for $200 is a “steal”.
    Someone certainly doesn’t feel the recession..
    At least people like Tavi or Bryanboy talk about things beside what i bought yesterday, what i bought today etc..
    that’s probably why they get invited to fashion shows and you don’t..

    The pumps are very beautiful Jane! I am too jealous like all of them. And the leopard print ankle boots are so lavishing!
    I and my Mom also love shopping together. So sad that she’s out of the country for a month already and it feels like a year! I miss going out with her. It’s nice that you have your Mom all the time. Me? I need to wait for 3 months before I could shop with her again. But for now I enjoy shopping with my girlfriends!

  239. Oh my! Any shoe-lover would melt at the sight of those shoes, especially your half mesh-half leather boots. That boots can make a potato sack top look expensive. You are lucky to find that in a basement store. Indeed, a nice pair of shoes would complete the totality of your look.
