Miss Meghan, Fashion Advice

February 15, 2006


finally, a company that is doing the shoe clip thing, and doing it well. though i've seen antique clips on ebay, and the odd leather flower clip in stores like sacco, as well as at WSA last season, when eileen shields added a chiffon clip to select styles, Aliza Darik are really the only ones in the market who are making extremely wearable, fashion forward shoe clips that are both accessible and chic. i am so so excited to see someone doing the shoe clip thing right!! makes miss meghan's heart warm and fuzzy since i have been yapping about shoe accessorizing for years, since my appearances on WE's "Savvy", and been flummoxed at the dearth of selection in the marketplace.

fellow michiganians, Alyssa & Darice Gregg have been perfecting their accessory niche since 1999, when they launched their flower chokers into the marketplace at henri bendel and barneys. turning their focus to shoe clips, they are now called upon by top editors when a custom piece is needed for an editorial shoot and are heartily recommended by daily candy, as well as miss meghan of course! the clips themselves are made of high quality materials--satin bows, bejeweled beading--that won't look out of place on your jimmy choos, and won't mar them either. shells, chiffon,Passementerie and fur, all add another layer of texture and the classic satin bows add just the right touch of 60's sweetness to any plain pair of stilettos that you feel really need to take it up a notch. (which miss meghan recommends pretty much all the time.) try a dangling grosgrain bow on the back of your knee high boot for the ultimate in sauciness or a stitched grosgrain bow to wear to the office when you can't bear another day of blah shoe-wearing in the corporate crypt!
