I have not yet explored the world of Alexander McQueen shoes although I have seen them pop up in Non-CL purchases, Non-Chanel, etc. Hopefully we can get them here to see!
I have been dying to try a cape.. My Koi lace top will be here tomorrow!!
I love them all, but the fits are wildly different. I'm a somewhat wide 37.5 usually, that's my size in most high street brands. The flesh lace pumps I got in a size 37. They're a tiny bit long, so I use a half insole. A half size down might have made them too tight on the foot in terms of width. The metallic red pumps are a size 37.5. They are so big that they're almost unwearable :( But I still manage, usually with a full insole and lots of cotton wool in the toe! Bad for my feet, I know. But I only wear them occasionally. The square toe pumps are a 38. They are about half a size big, a full insole makes them OK.
Regardless of sizing issues, I do love McQueen shoes! I'm always drawn to their design. They're beautifully constructed, too.
I also have a few dresses, I'll save those for another post and try to get some pictures together.
Another McQueen lover here. I have a navy blazer, a black tux*** jacket, grey wool coat, various t-shirts, two pairs of flats (red patent with two silver skulls from SS08 & skull print flats - I actually like the pointed toe!), 5 scarves (3 silk, 2 pashmina) and jewelry (skull ring + necklace). I also have a few items from the diffusion label McQ. I will try to get photos when I have time.
I haven't bought anything since his death, because nothing really caught my eye, but I still love what Sarah Burton has done. The only thing I've noticed since '09 that has made me a bit wary though, is that they seem to be skimping a bit on quality for classic items, i.e. the pashmina scarves are now 90% modal (they used to be a silk/cashmere/wool blend) but selling for the same price or the skulls on the jewelry have less rhinestones, yet again they're selling for more than before. Shoes and clothing still seem ok though and I highly recommend the tailored items which are beautifully crafted.
