Encore, Encore

Great news, shoe fans: Charlotte Olympia recently released her Encore Collection. This means classic styles will be available to buy year-round! Charlotte Olympia is fast becoming my fave shoe designer, right up there with Miu Miu."The higher the heel, the better you feel" is Charlotte's motto. And you can tell she means it, because all of her heels are sky high (6 inches and up). But if you know me, you know that's how I like it : ). I absolutely cannot die until I own a pair of the Tessa cat wedges or Kitty Flats pictured above (in pink, of course). I thought I would celebrate by sharing some of my favorites from what's online right now. The new Kiss Me Dolores! pumps are quite amazing and quirky. My feet would not mind being kissed by these shoes at all.

As for the green boots up top ... those are Charlotte Olympias as well. They were actually a press sample. Luckily for me, someone was selling them on my new favorite shopping site, Bonanza, which is similar to eBay in that you can bid on items from private sellers. These wool boots were going at an amazing rate, and if there's one thing I have learned in bargain hunting it's that if you see something you know is worth a lot and it is offered for a small fraction, buy it! Being that this is a press sample I also believe this boot to be extremely rare. But they are absolutely authentic and I love the green! Great deal! These babies are mine, and I cannot wait for the fall and winter so that I can wear them out and about.

Happy Shoe Shopping!


  1. Those green boots up top...that was the color I wanted for the shoes I bought in Ireland (blogged today), but they only had one pair in my size and it was black.

    Shoes....sigh.... xo

  2. some really nice shoes! I couldn't wear them, but very pretty!

  3. I am "green" with envy over your new boots Beth - you are one lucky girl! Looking forward to seeing a pic of you this Fall wearing those pretties...
