Christian Siriano fans! Rejoice!

The word on the street is his SS10 show was fierce!  However, are we surprised by this?

We discovered him when he was a contestant on the Project Runway.  During that show he came off as fierce as his designs.

The great thing about Siriano’s work is the range of what he’s creates.  You can find his designs in high end department stores like Saks Fifth Avenue but also in budget conscious shoe stores like Payless Shoe Source.

The buzz is that Christian truly came into his own with this collection and matured with this collection.

His Spring 2010 collection was inspired by Mediterranean travel.  Many of the pieces in this collection were made with an aerial shot of the Italian coast in both ocean blue and fire red.  I liked the colors more than the neutrals.

However, this shimmery tan suit caught my eye.  I think it’s just lovely.

My favorite pieces were the vibrant blues like this beautiful flouncy dress:


Very nice work Christian!  We can’t wait to see what you come up with next.

You can see more shots from Christian’s SS10 show on Coutorture.com, at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week site or here:

I’m partial to these great ankle boots from last season!

There’s a certain time in between seasons before you trade your sandals for your fall and winter boots.  This is normally when the classic ballet flats come in.  They are perfect for the transition into fall and can be worn when it is still warm out and cover your toes when the weather begins to cool down. There are many versions of the ballet flat, but below are some of my favorites under $100.

Kobraa

Just like the little black dress, every woman needs a pair of basic black flats.  The Kobraa from Steve Madden in Black Patent ($49.99)  has always been my choice for a comfortable yet chic look.  The thing I love most about this style is that it also comes in gold, snakeskin, and many other colors and patterns.

Kazler

A little embellishment is a great look for these stylish shoes.  Here is another great pair by Steve Madden.  The Kazler in Pewter ($89.95) is a fun choice to jazz up an outfit.

Jasper

You can never go wrong with metallic… especially with these Minx Metallic pair from Topshop ($50).

Jasper

The zippered flower detail on this pair of Madden Girl Jasper flats ($39.95) adds edge to the feminine shoe.  Affordable price + fashion forward style = perfection.

It’s hard to imagine what you cannot buy online these days.  Most everything you could possibly want is available with a simple click of a button.  Loeffler Randall and Jessie Randall, the masterminds behind the footwear brand Loeffler Randall, took this idea into mind when deciding to launch the company’s own online store on its website at loefflerrandall.com.  The site, which relaunched today features a large collection of flats and its widely-popular boots, as well as its line of accessories and clothing.

“Loeffler Randall has become a cult brand, but no one [retailer] can show the full embodiment and vision of the brand,” said Randall. “On the website, we’re able to show all that.”

The website will also feature a fashion blog by the designer, behind-the-scenes video, and look books.
