Velvet Crush


New York Fashion Week, September issues, The Rachel Zoe Project, it’s hard not to talk about fashion this week, so I thought I would join the conversation with my latest obsession…velvet shoes!  The very idea of shoes made out of velvet seems so “over the top” decadent.  I’ve never owned a pair, and this season they seem to be everywhere, tempting me at every turn.  It’s hard to pick a favorite, but those moc croc navy blue loafers from Stubbs and Wootton might be calling my name…

  1. Just love the Stubbs & Wooten velvet flats!! I saw several tempting pairs there recently. Normally I rarely wear flats, although I may have to work around that this season since there are so many cute ones!!

  4. Love the flats you like since I can't wear heels as high as the first couple.
