Limited Edition Jimmy Choo Reveal!


My dressing room is still undergoing major construction I special ordered a vanity mirror (but as you can see it's not up because it hasn't come GRR and I've been waiting for over 4 weeks already!!) so I probably won't post picks until things are more settled in the room but I had to talk about my new vanity it's hard to see them in the picture but the legs of the vanity are MAH-JOR!! They're french baroque design and GORGEOUS.  I'm so totally obsessed with my new vanity table and chair.. (now don't you wish you could see the chair?? tehehe).  Pics to come soon I promise :)


Ok enough blabber on to my new Jimmy Choo reveal!!  These are officially my very first pair of Jimmy Choo's! 

These shoes are actually part of the ICONS collection.  The ICONS collection is to celebrate the companies 15th anniversary so they are reissuing 15 of their most infamously famous shoes from it's archives but the reissued shoes have some new luxurious updates! 

Since these are special limited edition shoes they also come with a special limited edition box which is why the shoe box looks a bit different from a normal Jimmy Choo shoe box.  You guys know how much I love limited edition anything!!  


The great thing about the ICON collection is that a portion of the proceeds will actually go to The Jimmy Choo foundation which gives money to women's rights charities.


Here we go!


Presenting the Marlene!  


The ICONS collection shoes come with a giant fold up poster book to show you all the reissued redesigned shoes and talks about the history of where the shoe came from.


If you're a Sex in the City fanatic and the the shoe looks peculiarly familiar to you it's because this particular shoe is actually the remodel of the infamous feather Choo's that Carrie Bradshaw had stolen from her in the show!


There's a bit of a back story to these shoes.  We are currently living in a much smaller city in Germany than I am accustomed to and it's a bit of a culture shock to me having lived in Washington, D.C., Honolulu, Hawaii, and San Francisco.. where if you want something more than likely you will have easy access to it.  Munich has a luxury shopping street known as Maxamillian it's what Champs-Elysee is to Paris.  Munich is about a 2 hour drive from where we live now and as soon as we dropped our bags off at the hotel the first thing we did was head over to Maxamillian.  I went into practically every store on the street Chanel, Hermes, Christian Louboutin, Valentino, Cartier, Chopard, Dior - and I didn't find a thing that really made my heart stop.  Sadly by then the stores were closing up and I went back to our hotel empty handed. :(


The next morning I woke up and was unwilling to admit defeat so the hubs obliged and said we could go back to Maxamillion as long as I would agree to go to BMW World in the afternoon hahaha.


We were strolling past the Jimmy Choo store and these shoes were prominetly displayed in the store window and my heart literally skipped a beat!  I stood outside and pressed my nose and hands up on the window like a child staring into a candy store and oogled at them for a good 10 min. (I swear I think I drooled a little bit) and finally my husband practically pushed me into the store.  YAY! :)


The shoes are 145mm high roughly 6 inches and are by far the tallest shoes in my collection but the platform is quite big roughly 1.5 inches so the shoes wear like a paif of 4.5 inch heels.


I love love love jewel tones!!  I mean how can you not the gorgeous amethyst purple and the stunning teal and blue sapphire colors!!  The hand applied feathers have little sparkly Swarovski crystals sprinkled on them.  To be totally honest I'm terrified of actually wearing these shoes out.. I'm afraid one misstep and the feathers and crystals will tear off ::CRIES::


I decided to give you guys a little peek at my new vanity chair!!  Tehehehe do you see it?? :)

  15. the Marlene is beautiful! You have great tastes in shoes Lisa, and im curious to know where and how you store your heels! I cant ever imagine wearing such beautiful delicate heels outdoors! id be afraid to get them dirty hahaha.

    ReplyDelete
  16. *swoon* that is a heavenly pair of heels you got Lisa! I would be terrified of wearing them too. They are "inside - sitting - showing off - only" kinda shoes in my clumsy-mind. :) As always - fab taste!
