23 In Style


http://heirloomflowersandballoons.co.uk/contact-us When it comes to great looking chunky heels, no one does it better than Dries van Noten.  I was so excited to find two pair of SS/11 on clearance.  I love the pair above.  Especially love the Leonard-esque print on the heel and he gets the pitch perfect everytime.

Beautiful detail….

Above was my first experience with the Dries heel–I’ve had these strappy black patent sandals for years, and they’re still on first choice rotation in the shoe closet.

This was the other pair I snagged.  Lucky me!!!

    Too funny! I am wearing a pair of Dries sandals today from Spring 2009. That collection was so amazing with the black and white prints and the embellished shoes . . .

    Gorgeous heels, especially adore the last pair. And I’m especially wondering what shade of nail polish that is : )

    Great shoes, very theatrical, almost like they were inspired by the ballet.

    Hi Everyone–The nail polish I’m wearing is by POP, and the color is number 14. Not sure where to get it–it was sent as a gift. If anyone knows, please leave a comment! It’s a great brand of nail polish, and they have a lot more fun colors.

    What wonderful buys, I have to say the chunky Dries heel is always in my heart. The sheer attention to detail on the first pair is wonderful x

    lucky indeed! you have a great little dries collection going there. i just saw a slightly darker version of the 1st pair still hanging around the barney’s clearance section, and i couldn’t make up my mind, so i left them. now i think your post has me ready to run back to the store after work today! i was unsure about the comfort- glad to hear they are comfortable and pretty.

    Hi, Judy! Does the sparkly Dries van Noten shoes run true to size? I am contemplating on purchasing one online.

    Mary–Yes, they did run true to size–I did not go up or down.

    You lucky girl found the Dries multi colored suede sandals. I could not find my size anywhere. Oh well. I am a shoe designer and am re designing a shoe that I bought to have a dries type heel. I posted it on my site , http://www.lashoegirl.com) let’s see how they turn out…just a fun personal project. Would have preferred to find the Dries!:( Thanks for ur posts!
