12 Days of Christmas: Day 6- Feats of Graying

Gray Matter

On the Sixth Day of Christmas I hope the Shoe Fairy Brings to me:

Six Pairs of Gray Shoes! Thigh high "New Davis" suede boots by Brian Atwood (available at Net-A-Porter) are an on-trend classic, and Cesare Paciotti's studded, belted knee boots (avialable at have bad-ass appeal. Oxford ankle boots in gray suede and leather by Neil Barrett (available at The Corner) are ruggedly preppy chic, and a pair of Sergio Rossi "Fishnet" booties- with an actual sequin fish on the front (from the SS/10 collection) add aquatic pizazz. Jeffery Campbell's "Michelle" gray suede pumps (available at Akira Chicago), with their unicorn heel and ruffles are uniquely versatile, and a metal platform and heel give Barbara Bui's "Choked Ankle" pumps (available at a polished look.

Five Golden Rings! Actually, I'd prefer five pairs of golden shoes. Start with a pair of knee-high boots with sculpted heels, like Behnaz Kanani's "Delroba Gold" boots to go with jeans and sweaters. Then I'll take peep toed gold ankle boots, like Le Silla's limited edition "Mirror" booties and Max Kibardin's "Margot" fringed peep toes, to jazz up leggings or mini dresses (both available at Gregory's Shoes.) Also, a couple of pairs of gold pumps, like Diego Dolcini's metallic pointed pumps (available at and KG by Kurt Geiger's gold "Dolly" sequined pumps
(available at

Four Pairs of Feathered Footwear: Feathered and jeweled booties by Giuseppe Zanotti for Balmain (available at, Jimmy Choo's "Mable" feather-adorned sandals (available at Saks Fifth Avenue), Bourne's "Hayden" satin peep toes (available at Lord & Taylor), "Carla" peacock feathered sandals by Martinez Valero (available at

Three "French" pumps... Well 3 pairs by prominent French designer, Roger Vivier.

2 Pairs of Yves Saint Laurent Imperiale boots that go over my knee.


A pair of Nicholas Kirkwood Egypt platforms in purple alligator.
