Apart from Anna dello Russo’s overall fabulousness and stylish genius I specially envy her fantastic shoe collection. My favourite shoe (I can’t stop looking at the pictures) is the Tom Ford for Yves Saint Laurent cherry pump – and that in all colours, which he used back in 2003 (and in fact Anna dello Russo has got them in all colours).

Unfortunately, there is no way of getting hold of them or at least finding similar ones (velvet combined with plexi/plastic and strass can easily look cheap and ugly). Bad luck. But I revisited that collection, Tom Ford did in 2003 to see how he combined the shoes, colours and clothes. Amazing! I wish he would start designing clothes for women again. Actually simple, but super sexy. And what I loved most about his collection: the boudoir-like feel achieved through the use of shiny fabrics and the combination of black and brown with pastel or bright colours. Enough said.

Anyways, I decided to keep my mispurchase from last fall – the shiny pastel green silk blouse (worn exactly once) – and combine it with something black and my yellow-gold crystal Zanotti sandals. And if it turns out well I will show you the result here. 🙂
