Your lifestyle, your quirk
I am in love with Jeffrey Campbell.
Well, not the designer himself, but his shoes. I got a pair of his Bee Bee flatform shoes in leopard for my birthday a couple of months ago, and I have been plotting and scheming to add another pair to my collection ever since. I may have to wait for my birthday to roll around again to splurge, and they sell out like hotcakes, but if the shoe still exists in my size on the internet, I will find it.
Now, this is a bit of a project for me, because the choices are endless! Every time I take a look, he has added another style, color, or variation. They also cost more than I’d like. But you get what you pay for with this shoe; they are well-made, comfortable, and they get a lot of attention. I am positive I could wear these babies next year and still get the same reaction.(Shout-out to the universe, if I had a dollar for every time someone asks me about them, I would have my next pair.)
Right now, the pair I have my eye on is the Nightwalk.
In case you haven’t seen this shoe or versions of it, it’s a platform Mary Jane with a curved heel that looks like your heels are suspended in air. It’s hard to explain, so think something Lady Gaga would wear. I can’t confirm she wears actual Jeffrey Campbell shoes, but if so, she probably owns a pair or two or three hundred of them.
I loved this shoe style and I had several pairs when I was younger, a black patent pair in particular, so I am totally jazzed to see this shoe trend is back. Mary Janes are traditionally a little girl shoe style, but the Jeffrey Campbell Mary Jane Nightwalk is all grown up and quite sexy. This is such a simple shoe style, but with this heel, it has taken on a whole new look.
Now, the tricky part, in addition to the big question of will I be able to walk in them, will be making my selection. One of the things I love about Jeffrey Campbell shoes is he takes one style and churns out several versions in different colors and with different embellishments. My first instinct is to head for the leopard…but I have seen several pairs I know I will be at least trying on. I just might end up making a beeline for something patent leather, minus the studs, for nostalgia’s sake.
