One of the most popular colors for Resort 2012 is cobalt blue (or as we like to say SATC blue - our homage to the famous blue Manolo's Carrie wore for her wedding to Big in the Sex and the City movie!) The above 4 pairs of shoes are just examples of milk & honey cobalt blue shoes we love, but as always you can design your own shoes! The first are one of our most popular wedding shoes, rosebud peep toe shoe in SATC silk. The second is bright blue patent peep toe with bluebell suede double buckles. The next is another of our bridal bestsellers, the bow tied peep toe wedge in SATC silk. And the fourth is bright blue patent peep toe slingback with a platform.
Obviously, we think cobalt shoes are the best way to take advantage of the trend, but there are other ways if you insist! The below is an Asian inspired cobalt blue dress from Derek Lam's Resort 2012 collection. Beautiful and easy to wear.
Another option are these mid-rise cropped waxed skinny jeans by J Brand. They will take a bit more squeezing than the Derek Lam dress, but once you do, you'll look great!
If you prefer the real stuff (leather that is, as opposed to the "waxed" look above), give this Tibi pencil skirt a go. We've never seen leather look this good!
And obviously you will need to accessorize (in addition to your cobalt blue shoes of course), so below are some great options. Marion sling bag in azure with silver metal detailing by Alexander Wang and the Big Time Statement necklace in blue and gold by Kate Spade.
So start dreaming of winter ending, beach getaways and Spring just around the corner with all of these great cobalt blue options. And get started designing and creating your own custom shoes now so they will be at your doorstep just in time! Happy desgining.
