Much Ado About Shoes: Bourgoisie Shoetique Event

Shoes & Ooooohs!

The Shoes & Booze team has decided to add a new feature to the blog. You see, we often attend fabulous fetes featuring fierce footwear, and we've realized it's only right that we share. Therefore, when you see "Much Ado About Shoes" in the title, you know it's event coverage.

Now, onto business! I attended Bourgeoisie Shoetique's spring affair "The Platform" in Harlem, NY this past Thursday night. (Partial proceeds went to the EIF Revlon Walk.) Haute girls in attendance at the swanky shoe soiree included host Selita Ebanks (Victoria's Secret model), Melyssa Ford (model), Bevy Smith (Big sis to the team & fashion correspondent), cast members from BET's Harlem Heights and my partner in style for the night, Liris Crosse (model/ actress). We sipped wine and tropical Belvedere cocktails while gnoshing on mini crab cakes, macaroni & cheese and other yummy hors d'eouvres. The models and celebs looked amazing, but what got me were the shoes! Models carried illuminated trays displaying some serious foot candy, and there were plenty of treats inside the boutique too! Liris is holding one of my favorite pairs, a platinum platform by Sergio Rossi. I also fell in love with pairs from Gianmarco Lorenzi's bronze hardware platform and Giuseppe Zanotti's black & cream Nero platform. (Both below, respectively.)
