Shoe Designer Sam Edelman Makes Giving Chic

I told you this was going to be good. 

Sam Edelman – one half of famed design team Sam and Libby – will make a personal appearance at Belk at the Summit on Saturday, March 31 from 1-3 PM.  But not only is he going to showcase haute looks from his Spring 2012 shoe collection (which is fab all by itself), he’s also going to make a $5000 donation to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation of Alabama.  And as if the news could possibly be any more fabulous, Belk is matching his donation.

“As a male designer in the world of women’s footwear, I come in contact everyday with women whose lives are touched by breast cancer in one way or another,” said Sam Edelman. “I’m so blessed that women love shoes. I’m so blessed to work with women every day of my life and I’m so blessed to be able to give back.”

I peeked at the Spring collection, and it holds true to what the Sam Edelman brand is known for:  fashionable and modern silhouettes at great prices.  The collection features  – of course – chic ballet flats (featuring studs, snakeprint color blocking), satin espadrilles, loafers and  strappy flat sandals in bright and neutral tones, as well as gladiator sandals, wedges, peeptoes and slingbacks. 

See you there!

I Never Met a Stiletto I Didn’t Like

Scarlett/Sam Edelman $199

…and this lovely traffic stopper is no exception.  My eyes zeroed in on it in Belk and I HAD to try it on! This shoe is NOT for the timid!  The dual design peep toe – the leopard calf hair  is the business in the front and studded suede provides the party in the back – is saying a lot, so if you dare to wear them keep your ensemble  simple: rock a black tee and skinny jeans or a quiet but deadly sheath. 

Also available in ivory/black, gold/black, and black/black.
