Trend Watch: The Love Knots

There's a bumper crop of "inspired by" shoes this season. So if you want the look and don't have $700-$3000 to drop on your fabulous peds, this is your year. I'm excited by so many trends, it's hard to start. So I narrowed it for this installment to what I call The Love Knots (ruched knots.)

The inspiration:

Both have a gorgeous shape, amazing quality, detail, and the ruching cascades down the sides like chocolate luxury. I digress, at $850 and $865 respectively. If you can work it, than by all means do. And since this classic was last season , it may be harder to find.

So alternatively...

Nine West
comes in with it's classic satin jewel, Luxious classic and sexy. Awesome for all those floral dresses. $93.00 @Zappos

Chinese Laundry's entry, Baldwin fun and fresh. Plus the buckle detail. Ummm s-p-a-r-k-l-y, but subtly so. Capri's anyone? $73.00@Zappos

Madden takes an edgier approach with his Knot-front pump. Metallic or black with rougher seamed ruching, I'd say they're more bittersweet. Stove pipe jeans, footless tights/mini skirt, or pencil skirt would literally rock. $89@Vicki's.

Pinup Girl Clothing
is always a good stop for classic sexy style. Check the Retro Slip-On Stiletto. Look familiar? And only $39 @PinupGirlClothing For best results consult:
