Miss Meghan, Fashion Advice

January 23, 2007



Sitting at her seamstress grandmothers’ knees, Shelly Steffee, has been designing clothes since she was 12 years old. A native Pennsylvanian, she now calls New York home, where her boutique and studio in the Meatpacking district are regular destinations for celebs from Lindsay Lohan to Natalie Maines. Her designs are luxe and casual, sumptuous silks, delicious wools and gorgeous jerseys, in draping forms with architectural details and an intellectual punch. As you know, Miss Meghan is a huge fan of her pants, and has been seen about town in her silk tops this Winter, both layered over tees or on their own for a striking nighttime effect. Shelly graciously took time out from her busy schedule before Fashion Week to answer the essential question, Shoe are you?©

Favorite pair of shoes?

It would definitely be my faux shagreen platforms from Jane Mayle.

What do you like to wear with them?

Black denim jeans, a black liquid poly vest, and white fur collar necklace.

Type of shoes you like to see on the opposite sex?

I love to see a man in a masculine boot.

Most you ever paid for a pair of shoes?

Honestly, it was $800, but I also have paid $20— for a pair of flip-flops!

Shoes you were wearing for your first kiss?

Red patent-leather kitten heel pumps with a stripe dress. (It was the 80's!)

Pointy or round toe?


Stiletto or flat?

Neither, I’m more of a chiseled platform or a stacked heel kind of girl.

On men: Wingtip or cool sneaker?
