When I was in New York for our thanksgiving weekend, I stayed in the coolest loft in Soho. And across the street is a shoe store with shoes in glass boxes in the windows and they looked like space ships.
I thought I would come back to see these again and try them on.
So I did.
And you see how fun it was.
I mean, now you know that these aren’t your average-day, normal shoes.
This is the Nova shoe: a special-edition collaboration between United Nude’s Rem d Koolhaas and architect Zaha Hadid. You’ll recognize her style in the shoes instantly: she designs with a very liquid vision, very fluid and layered much like the Nova shoe:
I can’t tell you enough how much I’m crazy about these crazy shoes.
So instead I will let you watch the video of how these shoes are made and then you’ll be on your knees with me bowing in respect to the beauty and genius:
So the question is, Am I still thinking about buying $2,000 shoes?
If perchance you were thinking to yourself that this fall you’d slip into some trendy footsies, I suggest going straight to Sam Edelman’s collection. The designer can do no wrong in my fashion books this season.
Many options for work-appropriate height that capitalizes on fall’s textures and prints.
Check it out for yourself: the western shoe-boot, lace-up army boots, ballet flats, printed booties, no-fuss riding boots, tassels and punk trim. It’s a happy fall season that continues with the mixed materials and colour blocking trends.
Note to ladies: we are seeing the above-ankle boot and I recommend wearing it with a cigarette pant or cuffed jeans at the boot seam. Will demonstrate.
Have a safe and very happy Halloween!

Tonight I’m super pumped to be attending my friend’s fashion show as the ultimate closer to Toronto Fashion Week: behold the visions from Evan Biddell.
Not only is it going to be an incredibly fun presentation – the collection is called Going Through It and is a sort of going away event for New York-bound Biddell- but guess what- the most incredible emerging singer/songwriter in North America (Joseph of Mercury) is doing the music. Amazing amazing amazing people! You’ll also be interested to know that Joseph’s signature white leather jacket was made by Evan (there’s your fashion trivia for the day).
And it keeps getting better because I was bequeathed an incredible dress to wear tonight by none other than Wayne Clark – kingpin designer of North American glam. Check out the gown below – this is it, although here worn by none other than Daria (naturally) in a shade of dark green. Mine is an exclusive one-off that Wayne made in bubblegum pink!!!!!:
Not to worry- pictures of tonight’s activities are obviously forthcoming.
