It’s been over a decade since Sex and the City aired on our television screens but who can forget the friendship, the fashion, the cocktails and most importantly the SHOES! The shoes were almost a 5th character, with woman tuning in every week to see what fabulous footwear Carrie was trotting around the city in. My frock addiction quickly flicked to footwear and I literally started dressing around ‘the’ shoes. I became obsessed with finding shoes that brought a little New York high fashion to my Sunny Coast lifestyle.
Sadly I’m not Carrie Bradshaw nor do I have her budget, so you can imagine my delight when I found a brand that was fashionably fabulous without the over the top price tag. A brand that brings quality high fashion designs dripping in crystals without breaking the bank balance. Who is this designer I boast about? Alan Pinkus.
Alan Pinkus is huge on the bridal circuit, with many brides wearing their gorgeous designs on their big day. Alan Pinkus and I started our love affair a few years ago when I screamed down Myer in Melbourne after finding ‘the Carrie shoe’, the ones’ Mr Big proposed to Carrie with, although I must say that this version was even more luxe. I was not only in shock that I found them but they were also only $299.00 and not $1500+. The Keisha is a delicious shoe, encrusted with the most stunning crystal on top that would make Carrie weak at the knees.
Available in 4 colours in a satin finish this shoe is stylish for events or even dressing up a pair of jeans. Gone are the days of saving our bling for a special occasion, adding something sparkly to a casual look is the perfect way to glam it up without going over the top.
The Alan Pinkus range is created using high quality materials and crystals. The range starts at $69.00 and features not only heels but flats too. Each pair of shoes are incredibly well-made, which is proven to me time and time again, as even after wearing them day in and day out my feet never need to ‘break them in’ and never me sore feet or blisters.
Word is quickly spreading to women globally who are reliving their own Sex and the City moment through this stylish designer by adding a fab heel to their everyday look.
