I saw this coming a mile away.

No…..really, I did!

When you look at the whimsical designs of shoe designer extraordinaire Sophia Webster  and pair it with the first pair of pumps you ever put on  anyone (aka Barbie probably sometime around the age of 3 or 4) it only makes sense that eventually the two would collide on a major collab.   Yep-as of August 27,2015 Selfridges will be debuting just such  a collection in a positively pink assortment of pumps, sandals and sneakers.  They have the Barbie logo, there’s glitter and glam and all the things that made us Barbie fans from the beginning.

How does that saying go? “If it’s not broke than don’t fix it.” Well that would certainly be the case when it comes to the design talents of Sophia Webster (uber fabulous British shoe designer with her own line of shoes who FYI began her career under Nickolas Kirkwood) and J. Crew.

Wayyyyy back in Spring 2014 the first collaboration between J. Crew and Sophia Webster debuted-can we say “sold out” faster than you can click your heels together. So another collaboration followed for Autumn 2014 and you know where this is going-another gorgeous collection-another sell out.  So it’s really no surprise that J. Crew and Sophia Webster have embraced the idea of a Holiday Collection and right on cue the line is available as are most things for holiday-RIGHT NOW. The line consists of 7 styles in a variety of patterns, colors and designs. Price points range from $320.00 to $695.00 and can be purchased online and in select stores including London, New York and Hong Kong. 

Eva T-Strap $595.00

Each and every style is beyond beautiful and will certainly make the simplest of holiday attire attain glamour worthy status. Perhaps even more alluring is realizing that even after the holidays are over you could wear any one of these styles to “pump up” your outfits year round. Don’t you love a little early holiday shopping especially when the person you’re shopping for is you?!

Maybe  “The third try is the charm” but in this case we can only keep our fingers crossed that there will be a fourth collaboration. Thank you J. Crew and Sophia Webster-it’s a collection straight from shoe heaven.

Sophia Webster for J. Crew…

Lola Kitten Heel $320.00

Finn Pump $595.00

O.K. Hold the presses …I am having a major shoe crush. There I was paging through the latest In Style magazine when BAM! I come across the most adorable shoes I have ever seen. (Well…relatively speaking the most adorable shoes that I have spotted in the last month).  They are designed by Sophia Webster. Who’s Sophia Webster? Have I missed a shoe memo? Well this is what happens when you’ve been out of the loop for 15 minutes. You miss important happenings like shoe designers who began their career as an assistant for designer  Nicholas Kirkwood and now have their own line of shoes (available online and at Nordstrom). It seems that our Ms. Sophia has been one busy bee and after leaving Mr. Kirkwood’s employ ventured out on her own to create Sophia Webster shoes  Now that you have a little background I need to get you up to speed which brings us to her most recent collaboration with J. Crew. I have no doubt that Jenna Lyons (Creative Director for J. Crew went bonkers over her designs-Jenna has been known to be a major shoe hoarder-I mean addict).

The line for J. Crew is comprised of  8 styles priced between $320.00 and $695.00. I know that’s a pretty penny to pay but think of it like ART, because Glamour Girl these pumps are pretty enough to display in a gallery (or at home on a shelf or under a clear glass case). Well played Sophia Webster.  

Nicole Pump $480.00

Pipa Pump $620.00 (already sold out)
