Well, friends, I didn’t think I could love her any more than I already do. My girlcrush, Ms. Chie. I’ve already professed my obsession with her work. Well…I thought I was obsessed….
Then I saw her new Fall lineup.
Is it creepy to say I want to inhabit her? I mean, creatively speaking, that is. I want to crawl inside her brain, set up a picnic table, and hang out. Forever.
My top picks follow, the very toppest of the top being an Anthropologie exclusive, the Copper-Dusted Heeled Oxfords.
A close second has to be the Zanzubar:
or the Osias in Bronze:
A Mano, a U.S. boutique carries the same shoe in a different colorway:
I’m also incredibly digging the Zuli:
And these Ilaria beauties from Pedshoes:
And from Spartoo.com, I’m loving these Falco friends.
And these Vicet oxford pumps from DeliciouzBoutique :
Another pair I can’t forget….the Postres. Purple with a poofball. Chie, you’re ruthless. Stop it.
There should be a law against shoes being this cool.
I’ve done a bit of research for you. I’ve spent some quality time locating other places (besides Endless.com and Amazon) where you can find beloved Chies without paying the high shipping cost buying them from ChieMihara.com in Spain. The caveat here is that some colors are exclusive to Chiemihara.com and well…the heart wants what it wants some times, right? If you’re lucky enough to fall for a colorway offered here in the US, here’s a few places to look:
Ped Shoes (large selection. Great picks!)
Lord and Taylor (Thanks to Diem for the tip on Lord and Taylor, currently offering 15% off regular priced items with code: STYLE. And they have the Postre style!)
Hertern Boutique (look on the blog link and you can see new Chie offerings being modeled.)
DeliciouzBoutique (no website, but this is the blog and you could contact them directly. Love the “Vicet” oxford pump with patent piping in Crimson!!)
Non U.S. sites that have exclusive colors as well. Shipping is a bit cheaper than direct from ChieMihara.com.
Farfetch.com (shipping only $29 from here! plus Free Global Returns!!)
My Sweet Dressing Post EDIT: the lovely Marine, owner/creator of My Sweet Dressing has generously offered a 10% discount to all my readers using the code “I LOVE CHIE” on your order. So awesome, right?!? Thanks so much, Marine!
Grace and Mabel (My favorite pick: their exclusive color of the Ekatrina shoe!)
julesb (20% off with code “secret20“. Thank you, Allysan1013!)
If you know of any other boutiques in your area that carry Chies, please…pipe up! I’d love to add them to the list.
Happy drooling to you.
