The new gallery has arrived! It is as carefully selected as ever, only bigger, and now you can shop directly from the main gallery (update: the main gallery has since been retired, sorry, but you can see the images of the shoes below). The images are courtesy of Yoox, my favorite online fashion boutique. I’m very happy that Yoox exists: it’s the only place in North America that sells a large selection of shoes I write about, which means that you can buy Spanish shoes from the comfort of your own home while enjoying Yoox free return guarantee, fast inexpensive shipping, and no extra duties or taxes except those calculated at the check-out. This blog is also affiliated with Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus Last Call, and Far Fetch, all great retailers, but the bulk of the shoes comes from Yoox.
I go through all our affiliate sites on a daily basis, to see what collections have now made it over the pond and to look for bargains, so check back often.
Sacha London‘s terrific FW2013-14 collection has come in at Yoox and I was extremely gratified to see how many models have made it over. I saw the catalogue for the collection on Sacha London’s website back in early Fall and it left a great impression (see posts here and here). Even country casual romantics like me can hardly resist the poised elegance and polish of Sacha London’s urban glamour. As I already noted in a post here, there is something about Sacha London that is downright queenly. And what woman does not want to look and feel like a queen?
The beauty of Sacha London designs lies in the quality and the finish of the leather, the detailing, the perforated effect, the noble shapes, the jewel tone colors, and a healthy dose of restraint. In the fall I was admiring the low rounded toe pump in snow-white with a contrasting patent leather trim, block heel, and an application on the vamp (the front part of the shoe)
the slim-nosed perforated black suede pump
the delicate coral pink and red fine-heeled sandal
the stunning high-heel pump in silver metallic leather.
I could also not resist these charming pumps by Sí by Sinela
So, if you like any of the shoes in the gallery and your size is available, don’t wait too long, they can be gone fast. As I mentioned before in this post here, Spanish companies follow French sizing, which runs smaller than the North American one, so in North America we’d have to order from one half of a size to one whole size up.
I just ordered a pair of beautiful Sacha London blue suede pointy toe flats with a rhinestone appliqué on the front, in size 11 (I’m normally a US 9.5, but this model was not available in half-sizes) and it’s a nice roomy fit. I could have fit into a 10, but, as I have a relatively wide foot, size 11 was a safer choice. I wanted to feature my first Sacha Londons in this post too, since there were other sizes available too, but when I went back to check today, they were gone. It turns out that I wasn’t alone. I will definitely put them on the blog’s Instagram feed.
Have fun with this new line-up!
