53 In Misc


Jane and I both bought these Gucci platforms for a ridiculously low price at the end of  spring 09. There were so many pair of these on sale, I don't think anybody bought them.  I love the rich color of the gold, and the exaggerated platform shape. Reminds me of a pair of platforms my older sister had in the 70's that I desperately wanted to steal!  


I'm picturing these for fall with a vintage bias cut, long wool skirt in plaid, and scrunchy olive socks  or thick tights.  For now, I tried them with a vintage pleated wool skirt from the 80's and gold sparkly socks….


Seriously Denise….


This skirt is so incredible.  It's hard to see the detail, but there are different textures of herringbone wool woven together.  What a great vintage find for $10!! (vintage clam belt)


Another shot…..So glad everyone enjoyed the Adolfo frog skirt!  Jane wore it out on Saturday afternoon, and I think we captured some great photos…all for now.

    I love it when no body else likes things you love and they go really far down on sale! Personally I think the shoes are beautiful, love the colour against the wood, great buy!

    incredible shoes! And you look fabulous, as always. Where can I find socks that thin? I want to start wearing my heels with socks but don’t know where to look. Can you advise?

  • Eva

    I adore these shoes!
    I’d love to do a search for them. Can you tell me about sizing? I’m a solid US 8.5 and usually wear a 39 Euro (40 French with a little room). Did you go with your usual size in these?
    Any and all advice appreciated, E

    wow, those shoes are serious to DIE FOR! are they comfortable?? I guess I could sacrifice some comfort for those shoes…WOW! and the skirt is also fabulous! Rachel Zoe had some killer platforms on last night’s show..don’t know who the designer was…but they remind me of your Gucci’s…LOVE!

    Ashley–I got my socks at Target. Check
    Target out for socks, they always have cute ones.
    Ivy Lane–The Guccis are very comfortable! They’re are quite heavy though….

    what lovely, golden surroundings…the photos have a decidedly autumnal glow.
    as for the shoes, i’m strangely drawn to them i mean, if they were described to me, sight-unseen, i’d probably go “hmm. nah.” but look how sexy-cute they are! and with socks- now, that’s a look i’m warming up to!

  • Maury

    Hope all is well…I am loving those Gucci shoes…look amazing on you and Jane! I can’t get enough of your shoe collection! You must have better shoes than any socialite out there.
    Have a wonderful blessed day.
    Loving the pics of Paris!…so dreamy and romantic.

    OMG Denise is absolutely adorable in that photo!!! Its like she’s saying, please Mommy can I have a treat?? I just melted a little bit.
    Oh and the shoes? Amazing.

  • judy aldridge

    The Guccis run true to size. I took my regular size 10. Jane and I are asked often if we wear the same size shoe, and we don’t. I’m a full size larger than Jane. Also, my feet are very narrow, and I don’t like to share my shoes…;)) I’m selfish, I know.

  • Eva
    September 30, 2009 at 12:21 pm

    Are these from FW ’08 or S/S ’09? And may I ask where you purchased them and what the style name is? (I’m officially obsessed)

  • judy aldridge
    September 30, 2009 at 2:01 pm

    Eva–I think they are from S/S 09–they look a little fallish to me, so not quite sure. Hope that helps you locate them!

    Thanks, Judy. I’ve located my size about an hour away. I’m going to try them on today!!
    Hopefully they’ll look as good on me as they do you two. I’m only 5’3, so they could potentially throw off my proportions. Mind if I ask how tall you are?

    I LOVE that last photo of your feet on the bricks – it reminds me of a very swank, fashionista version of The Wizard of Oz. TRES chic!!

    I am wondering where to get socks like that too! I love socks with heels but they always make my shoes too tight- do you know which brand those are?

    How irritating that several people either hinted or asked you where you bought your shoes and you continue to ignore them, yet you make sure to mention how many shoes there were at the store you went to. It seems as if you were being intentionally rude. You are fully aware that you post things for people to see and most likely people are going to want the things you post, why not help them out? or if you don’t want people getting the same shoes or clothes as you then don’t post them.
