The End of My Love Affair with the Leather Spa: Jim’s Shoe Repair is the Best in New York City

The Leather Spa is a New York City institution. Scores of well heeled fashionistas go there to resole their Christian Louboutin stilettos, rescue stained bags, and resuscitate their shoes. I was one of those Leather Spa Lovers until today. I was blessed by the good Lord with a pair of calves that cut a cute form in summer dresses! But when it comes to winter boots, they don’t fit in–literally. I have been using The Leather Spa for years to…

Fashion Bomb Daily’s Live with Miss Jackson’s Shoe Gummi + Go Live With Us Next Week

Yesterday, we went live with Miss Jackson to discuss her new Bomb Product, Shoe Gummi!

Miss Jackson and I chatted on Live about it, as she discussed why she started the company, and showed us how she applied the outer soles to her favorite heels. This is definitely a…

My Azzedine Alaia Bombe Sandals Broke, #WhatisLife: Reflections on My Broken Bronx Heels Wearing an Anz Style Sweatsuit

The other night, I attended a party celebrating a new documentary called “The Remix: Women in Hip-Hop,” a film that looks at the lasting legacy and style of female MC’s. The fete, hosted by MCM, skewed ‘urban,’ so I thought I’d go for relaxed for a change with an Anz Style sweatsuit, but kept my look ‘Claire’ with diamond jewelry and Azzedine Alaia heels. Just as I hit my pose on the Step N Repeat, I felt a pop. I…

Wide Foot Women, Don’t Play Yourselves: Giuseppe Zanotti Ring Flats Hurt, Too

Happy Saturday, Bomb Lifers! I’m checking in briefly to make a public service announcement: if you have wide feet, steer clear of Ring flats by Giuseppe Zanotti. I have my fair share of Zanotti shoes. And while some are aiight (a 7 from 1 to 10 with 10 being quite painful), I am usually able to maneuver in them. There was only one pair, The Harmony Sandals, that were simply too narrow to walk in comfortably. I had to put…

I Feel Like I’m Too Rough for DSquared2 Lace Up Embellished Satin Sandals (But I Love Them Anyway)

I’m hard on shoes. Somehow as soon as I step into a heel, my foot takes over, and melds and forms the shoe until it is almost like pulp. My feet are sorta big, my feet are wide…my feet seem like they are tew much for these delicate heels. These sandals are fine jewelry in shoe form, simply consisting of a front satin strap and copious adornments. They are held together with a nimble ribbon, which ties daintily in the…

Happy Wednesday, Guys! So I stepped out last night for a series of events in a Balmain blazer, Zara turtleneck, Zara skirt, and Jennifer Le 2BD Thigh High Suede Boots: Someone on Instagram asked if they were comfy, so I decided to do a quick review of some new shoes in my closet. Let’s go! 1. Jennifer Le 2BD Suede Thigh Highs I am happy to report that these are VERY comfy and they zipped up like a charm over…

My November 2014 Lust List: An Adrienne Landau Raccoon Fur Jacket, an Anthony Vaccarello x Versus Greca Asymmetrical Gown, and Christian Louboutin Suede So Kate Pumps

Happy Sunday! So I’m headed home to New York from the Bahamas today. The trip was short, but seeing my family was sweet! I’m steeped in the warmth, but can only think of the impending cold in the Northeast. I went to Intermix a few weeks ago, and fell in lust with Adrienne Landau’s Raccoon Feather Coat! I couldn’t justify spending $2,000 just like that, but now that it’s on sale, I might splurge: It’s gala season, and my eyes…

Current Obsession: Silver Mirrored Pumps

A pair of Silver Mirrored Pumps is on my short list of must haves right now! They add a pop of glitz to any look, and gleam under the lights (oooh, shiny!). Solange’s chic and simple outfit below really drove it home for me. Um, I need a pair! Everyone from J.Crew to Gianvito Rossi to Tom Ford and Jimmy Choo has cute options. Kelly Rowland recently made an appearance on the View in a pair of Tom Fords… I…
