July 13, 2010

Living here is like living on the surface of the sun right now. Just thinking about wearing boots makes us sweat. Nine West Sydney

But the fashion gods are smiling on us with the peep-toe bootie trend.

They’re the closest thing we’ll get to air-conditioned boots, and they’re everywhere !

Which means lots of choices in colors and materials and flat-out fabulous style for all of us boot fiends . Here are a few of our favorites, in all price ranges.

Starting off with Nine West, Sydney, for $99. Also in black.Nine West DivaraNine West, Divara, $139.

Nine West DenyaOr the flirty and feminine Nine West Denya, in mesh and leather, $130. Also available in light gray, medium brown.

Michael Kors Parker Platform SideMichael Kors’ classic take is the Parker Platform in black leather and studs. Contemporary with a little edge, $165.

Alexander Wang Dree SideAnd then there’s the incomparable Alexander Wang, with his inevitably unique vision. He adds fringe, another hot trend for fall, and delivers the Dree Sandal. $615, at Barneys. Yummy.

Alexander Wang Devon

Alexander Wang’s Devon Pump is not really a boot; it’s a work of art. I saw Devon at Barneys in Scottsdale Fashion Square, and she’s honestly beautiful. Like a piece of sculpture.

(I’m welling up right now.) You must meet Devon in person; she leapt into my arms and begged me to take her home with me. Alas, I had to resist her charms and her price tag. $525. ( Stupid house payment.)

But, here’s the good news: peep-toe booties are sooooo hot right now, you can even find them on sale. Yay !

Marc Jacobs Ruffle Cut SideMarc by Marc Jacobs, Barneys, regularly $495, now $249 !

And last but not least, we must remind you that Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale even has the peep-toe bootie in their sale catalog.

Look at this sassy little Sam Edelman PeepToe Bootie. It’s scrumptious in taupe or black suede, and on Friday, July 16, you can find these marked down from $199.95 to $129.90.

Peep toes for all our fashion peeps !
