Cheap or Chic?

picture-14So just in case you don’t recognize her, this is Carrie Bradshaw…I mean Sarah Jessica Parker sporting some interesting color…and I’m not talking about the darker locks.

Check out the seriously chartreuse heels she’s got on!  I happen to love them, but I asked around and that was not the general consensus.  I keep seeing this color pop up in stores, on the runway at Fashion Week, and now on one of my style icons as seen here.

I searched high and low and could not find an acceptable pair of shoes in this color…everything I found was totally unfortunate or just too green and I’m starting to think this might be one of those  illusive colors that you have to fork over the big bucks for!

So what do you think about this color trend?  Would you wear green shoes?

So I know it might seem early to be lusting after sandals given that it rarely gets above freezing here in Philly , but I can’t help myself and there’s nothing like a versatile pair of gorgeous Vachetta sandals to get me in the mood for shorts, spring dresses and girly skirts!  The natural colored shoe is one of my favorite trends for Spring ’09 and with so many styles like flats and gladiators in woven, studded and strappy versions, you’re sure to find a pair that works for you!

The perfectly neutral tone makes these shoes wearable with just about any color and can we talk about how much longer your legs will seem when they seamlessly disappear into a pair of 4″ natural colored heels?!?  My only suggestion is that you might want to consider a little faux sun to tan those mid-winter gams before you strap these on!
