The finishing touch comes in the form of the striped rubber soles, which adds a fresh and modern appeal to a classic silhouette. These are a pair of boots that will rejuvenate your autumn wardrobe and add a playful and energetic vibe to any casual outfit. By combining the idea of movement,...

No, I didn't buy it!) Figureheads, from the illustrated ones in Miss Rumphius, through the unusual Stephanie Seymour "trophy wife" piece, to vintage carvings from actual ships, may just be my favourite form of art. So I guess it is reigning figureheads around here.

This similar shape turned up as well at Chanel (but with a thong), far above, on Kristen McMenamy, and below: To my mind, this shape reminds me of support socks and wavy Famolare soles: What would I have shod Ms. Shevell in? A closed-toe simple pump. I feel a Stanley Kowalski-inspired...

I'm not a clogger; wooden soles don't strike me as comfortable (never wore a pair of wooden-sole DKNY penny loafers I had in grad school), but there's something unaesthetically appealing about this motley shoe. It's by Bosabo. The second pair was equally curious, but again, that's what I...

So I signed up my alter ego, Kate Cavendish, the journalist. This is the email that she received: And to proceed, she was expected to sign up a friend as well, and could not proceed without, ahem, Submitting. (She signed up her new pal Privacy Please to see whether the process was...

I graduated from the University of Ottawa and soooo miss the Rideau Canal (for running and ice-skating) as well as Parliament Hill, where we used to throw softballs on the lawn, in gentler times. I thought that the Duchess looked so very elegant yesterday in her blue lace Erdem dress...

But--oh dear--by the time I had finished my walk, the tiny flower was missing! So I had a third tran-sportation challenge this week, alas! (I am trying to be a good "sport" about it, though.)

To make a long story short, the left footbed (beneath the inner sole) contains an embedded plastic ring, into which one can insert a microchip for iPodding while running. This princess quickly felt the pea (had no idea that my two-day-old shoe came with such a feature) and, after my...

Photos via: These Stella McCartney rubber sole heels & boots really fit different styles and got much love. Sold out almost everywhere but I spotted some numbers still available on sale here and here. Questi stivaletti e decolleté della collezione invernale di Stella McCartney in versione...

So what would you suggest, then, Miss Smartypants? I'd have dressed the duchess in this broderie anglais dress by Vivienne Westwood Anglomania: I like its full skirt, as a slim white skirt can be too slenderizing on the duchess. And the bow on the bateau neck would not be too jeune...
