I only have the yellow astro slides, but just wanted to comment on Choos in general. Have you noticed that the designs have gone downhill for the last couple of seasons since Tamara Mellon let go of Choo's niece (the former head designer)? There are some beautiful shoes in the resort collection though, so hopefuly there will be a turnaround with Choos. All I seem to notice lately are Louboutins.

WOW I never knew that:sad: why was she let go? I have always liked Jimmy Choo and but had been into other designers more like Manolo Blahnik, Brian Atwood, and now (like yourself) Christian Louboutin...it seems like the Choo's that I have liked have no problem selling so I never really knew about that drama...

Bagologist-I think it had to do with the fact that she didn't want to pay that girl very much money. I think she was paying her a salary of like $200,000 and she wanted a larger cut of the profits. Tamara refused and I think she figured she could carry the brand on her own. This is also when they decided to start hiring spokesmodels for their shoes (ie Nicole Richie). I know the designer was way miffed that they were paying Nicole Richie millions to model the shoes, but paid her a paltry salary to design and produce them.

I don't follow shoemakers that closely, but there was an article in Vanity Fair. I love how Vanity Fair is always able to sensationalize any story as a great scandal.

icechick - those are fantastic boots!!! I love them! Maybe a short dark blue/navy skirt?

I love modern art. Those boots are the perfect work of art. That's why I like Jimmy Choo - every shoe is like a work of art.

Oooh! Exciting!!!

I love everyone's shoes!!!

I am going to attempt wearing the Jimmy Choo boots I bought tonight. I got some grey Elie Tahari jeans to wear with them, but I'm not sure if they're skinny enough. We will see!

Hmwe46, the second pic with your niece is the cutest modeling pic I have seen!! I suspect it won't be long before she's asking to borrow your fantastic choos!
