I wasn’t all that impressed with the Haute Couture shoes for Fall 14. Haute couture always spoke to me as something unique and special. Something you can’t really get from any brand. When I google the definition of Haute Couture this is what I found…

haute cou·ture

ˌōt ˌko͞oˈto͝or/
noun: haute couture; noun: haut couture; plural noun: haut coutures
1. the designing and making of high-quality fashionable clothes by leading fashion houses, especially to order.

Ultimately, the definition of haute couture is expensive. The design of the garment, shoe, or accessory is designer preorogative.

My point of view,  if I’m going to drop some serious cash on a shoe, I would love for it to be unbelievably special. At the moment, I’m not there customer. If I was the haute couture customer, I probably would love to buy a pair of $2000 thongs from Chanel. Why the hell not?? There is nothing more lovely than a pair of double C’s and the sofest leather you can find hugging my little feet.

My favorite shoes on the runway…Dior, Giambattista Valli, and Chanel. However, Maison Martin Margiela scores high points for most original. Although, it’s not the most attractive shoe. I do respect their creativity.

Here is the run down of my faves:







Let’s not forget to give credit to Maison Martin Margiela for thinking out of the box, and doing something super cool and different. Although, I still wouldn’t wear them….
