Want It Wednesday!

I have decided to start this new thing this week called "Want It Wednesday"- every Wednesday I plan on writing about something that I love, think is amazing, and want really badly- This will sort of be an ongoing Christmas list of fabulous things. These definitely will always be splurge items, and I am sure they will usually be quite extravagant... Hey, a girl can dream ;)

This week's "Want It" item is something that I have been dying over since the first Sex and the City movie- These immaculate Manolo Blahnik Something Blue Satin Pumps! If you saw the movie, these are the shoes that Carrie left in that huge closet of the penthouse, Big used them to propose to her, and she eventually got married in them.

I got the pleasure of actually seeing them in person quite a few times (ok, so I basically stalk these shoes), and believe me, the pictures certainly do not do them justice. Words can not describe how fabulous these pumps are- the cobalt blue satin is to die for, the crystal brooch provides just the right amount of sparkle, and the 4 1/2 inch heel is the perfect height. In my opinion, these heels are flawless perfection!

Interesting side note: These shoes completely took off after the first Sex and the City movie came out in theaters. Every fashionista wanted their pair- They immediately sold out, and this success was a main reason why the Manolo Blahnik company did not go under during the bad economic times. When asked about Sex and the City and this particular satin pump that Carrie wore, Manolo himself stated "We has a very good year last year, thanks to those stupid satin shoes. That shoe saved our company."

You can purchase the Manolo Blahnik Something Blue Satin Pumps at Neiman Marcus.
Retail Price: $945

Stay Fabulous xoxo
