Forget red-sole Louboutins (they’re both masochistic and somewhat overplayed in the 305). The new IT shoe has a gold pineapple motif on the bottom and they’re by Aquazurra. The sweet husband bought me this turqouise suede pair (winning!) after our celebratory 12-year anniversary lunch at The Grill at Bal Harbour. Sordid confession: I strategically planned lunch at Bal Harbour Shops with the specific mission to “walk off lunch” afterward (AKA go shopping). I know, totally evil yet brilliant at the same time. You know you pull the same kind of shady shenanigans to your loved ones. Don’t lie now!
I recently had the honor of meeting the designer behind Aquazurra, Edgardo Osorio, and was pleasantly surprised to learn that new Shoe King is a Miamian by way of Colombia. How cool is that!? He now lives in Italy and divulged to me this fun fact (because fun facts are AWESOME): The pineapples on the bottom of his killer pumps are for good luck (he bears a pineapple tattoo on his wrist, too).
And that, loyal readers, is some insider-y news for you heel-aholics.
