Oscar Fashion and New Shoes

 Inspired by the Oscars:

These shoes are size 8/9 and will be raffled off for charity.  Please read the post below for details!

Last year, I had created a pair of shoes inspired by fashion at the Oscars.  {You can read that post here.}  This year, I had a few customers ask if we would carry on the tradition, which I thought was a great idea!  So, I polled several of you on facebook, and chose one of your favorite Oscar dresses as an inspiration for a style of shoes.  The name I heard most frequently was the lovely Emma Stone.  {No, I have not seen the Help yet, but I have heard it's amazing!}  Who wouldn't be drawn to that shade of carmine red/pink and over-sized bow!

In creating the shoes, I used the same color of course, and mimicked the draping, gathering at the neck, and opulent asymmetrical bow in a pint-sized shoe rendition:

The shoes have a T-strap, but it is entirely covered by the half-bow.  You can see the detail a bit better in this photo:

The shoes look really cute when worn.  The bow is pretty full and stands high on the foot, but the solid color keeps the shoes from being too over-done:

Here is Emma's dress and the shoes side by side again:

These shoes are size 8/9. They are soft-soled, one-of-a-kind, and were handmade in our studio. The Emma shoes, along with the gold peep toes in size 12 below {inspired by a very loose interpretation of Stacey Keibler's dress} will be raffled off for charity.

Genevieve's Worn

Photobucket

At long last, I have a few pictures of the Genevieve shoes worn.  They were taken by the very talented Angie of Simplicity Photography.  {Incidentally, she has an amazing giveaway, you can read about here.}

The Genevieve's are available for purchase here in size 4 - youth 1.

Additionally, like last year, I am designing a pair of shoes inspired by dresses worn to the Oscars.  Here is a very loose interpretation of Stacey Keibler's dress.

I am working on a much truer likeness of a pair inspired by Emma's Stone.  Hopefully, I will get those finished today.  You can see last year's Oscar-inspired shoes in this post.  The shoes created will be raffled off for charity.
