Introducing Nicholas Kirkwood

Louboutin has his red soles and Kirkwood has his architectural platforms. Towards the end of last year, DZ told me to watch out for Nicholas Kirkwood, the British designer who is slated to be the next Christian Louboutin. It took a few months but his designs grew on me. NK is still hard to find in the US but when you're featured 247 on blogs like jak and jil, its really only a matter of time before you're a household name. I've seen some of his stuff on shopping websites but I wasn't sure if I should buy anything without knowing how his shoes fit. Lucky for me, I was able to find a boutique in Santa Monica that carried his stuff. I declared a shoe emergency and rushed over as soon as I could...a lot of people couldn't understand why it was an emergency. It was an emergency because I had to make sure I got my hands on them before they sold out :P Anyhow, I almost walked out of there with 2 pairs of his shoes but I exercised something called "self-control" and ended up with his suede buckle booties:





I cannot wait to wear these out!!!!!! Absolutely TDF and they're comfy. And if you're wondering, his stuff are true to size.

Okay, I need to go to bed now. All this picture-taking and posing and blogging is draining BUT if things go as planned, I should have one last shoe post either tomorrow or sometime this weekend :) *UPDATE* Due to some issues with the shipping address, I probably wont get to blog about the last pair of shoes until this weekend...


**Note: In case you're wondering, I haven't forgotten about my first love: purses. I'm waiting for 2 packages to arrive in the mail and I'll be sure to post those once I get them...

I love those shoes and I've definitely seen more and more coverage for his designs. I found a pair on luisaviaroma UGH, I want them.

litlstrawberry: his platform designs reinforce the shoe...I remember seeing a picture on jakandjil blog where someone had broken the heel but they were still wearing the shoes because the platform was supporting them!

deb: you know it!

heather: BUY THEM!!! hehehe...before they run out!!!
