What Would Spartacus Wear?  It is THE shoe question to pose for the coming Spring season.  Perhaps Alexander McQueen‘s patent leather S&M inspired glads?

Gladiator Sandals are stomping back into our closets louder than a tour bus crowd entering the Colosseum.  Lead the pack in Gianvito Rossi’s suede low wrap sandals?

There is a dizzying array of styles and designers offering up the loveliest lace ups, reversecommuter is having trouble making a decision (quelle surprise!).  Valentino’s delicate laced up version is so gorgeous that for this shoe I would wrangle a lion or two.

Chloe’s gladiator offerings come in a flat or heeled version, both in a beyond-buttery suede just begging to be caressed…or worn.

Any shoe trend that allows my feet to be comfortable, run around after the banditos AND deliver  a look that makes my husband raise an approving eyebrow is ALL GOOD, even with the extra 5 minutes it will involve to lace these beauties up!

 

 

Fashion and Finance Friday!

Hellllllo Weekend!

apologies for not posting yesterday, here is my excuse   🙂

Fendi is coming to the aid of the Romans, or at least to the aid of Trevi Fountain in Rome.

The fashion house is investing $2.9 MILLION to repair and restore the famous fountain and all the gorgeous gods that stand and spout over 80,000 cubic meters of water, Ocean, Abundance and Health.  (click here to visit the Trevi Fountain website).

This admirable move is reminiscent of what Diego Della Valle of Tod’s did for the Colisseum in Rome (click here to see the earlier post).  Not only do these fab Italians design gorgeous clothes, bags, shoes, furs, etc etc, but they also have SO MUCH class and loyalty to their beautiful country!   reversecommuter applauds!

StuperBowl Sunday (tee hee) is February 3rd and the commercials are absolutely the best part (unless of course Beyonce decides to actually sing at half time!).  The 30 second slots go for an average cost of  $4 MILLION!  Sometimes it is worth every single fabulous penny…click here to giggle and sing along with VW!

Happy Weekend – and don’t forget to wear heels to the SuperBowl party!
