New York Attitude




I was standing on a street corner, outside of The Plaza Hotel and it was there that I spotted them.
 Thru the traffic, between the Manhattan crowds....those red shoes! They were like a beacon in a stormy sea..signalling to me. I should tell you that I am not a red shoe kind of girl...but that
did not stop me from loving the look of the dress and red shoes together. It has that 'corporate power, don't mess with me' kind of look, the one that says "I can wear red if I want too".
I like it. :)

The place: Bergdorf Goodman on Fifth Avenue.
The green paisley dress/red shoe look: Jil Sander
I especially love the photos below for the colours, glamour and
Manhattan buildings in reflection. They are all New York.
I think a girl could get used to this. :)




Colour is the operative word here...and lot's of it. 











Red shoe mannequin with attitude.... ready to take on New York.
Here's to you kid!

  1. Such gorgeous windows.
    And... confession... I have a pair of red shoes that I adore. Don't wear them often, but when I do I feel like a star.

  2. Check out the height of those heels on those adorable red shoes. Be still my beating heart, if my feet could stand the pain I would wear them for sure. I love them with the olive green paisley of the dress.xx

  3. Ahhh red shoes Jeanne - I am afraid I am partial. Although not usually to heels - more to ballet flats. I like interesting shoes though - they do lift an outfit. Wait - is this your C&J blog and we're talking style??!! No - I am on Collage of life! I like the new header btw - it may not even be that new but I like it! New York - what a treat. You are the traveller. Lou x

  11. My little old grandmother always said that only women "of ill fame" wore red shoes. When she died we found a box hidden in the back of her closet ... containing one pair of red shoes, size 4 - definitely hers! I've always loved the thought of her buying them and then hiding them away!

  15. I have always loved and worn red shoes .... just not those with 4-inch heels. The next best thing to red shoes? A red coat. Love to follow your gadding about the world!
