farewell to fay


The bad news is that my absolute favorite shoe store, te casan, has hit hard times and closed its doors permanently. The website links to a sad message and the formerly glowing jewel of a store, where I was served hot tea and treated like royalty whenever I stopped by, has been emptied. I was always inspired by the idea that the young unkown shoe designers were discovered by te casan and were given a great chance to produce the shoes from their own personal sketchbooks. I hope this concept is picked up somewhere else so I can continue my dream to one day learn to design shoes...ooh that would be amazing...

The good news is that the leftover limited edition shoes have been extremely discounted and are now being sold at Amazon and bluefly.


Here are some of my picks...I will miss Fay Baldock...she was always my favorite...


Gaetano Perrone Satin Diana Pump $128.69 (orig. $395.95)
These were worn by Blake Lively on Regis & Kelly! Supposedly she has them in many different colors...
Gianluca Soldi Snake Glenda Stiletto $150.38 (orig. $375.95). I tried these on once...they are super sexy.
Fay Baldock Faith 2 $93.40 (orig. $325.95)...I think I need to get these...

The teal bottom ones are amazing! I want to see them on your feet next time I see you.
