Fashion Friday: Ruthie DavisPosted: April 22, 2011
Allow me to preface this post by admitting that it is a blatent attempt to make myself look cool by association. That said, my godmother and aunt, Ruthie Davis, is the dazzling mastermind behind an incredible line of shoes and handbags called Ruthie Davis. Before we jump into the details, let’s let the Spring/Summer 2011 collection speak for itself:
Do I have your attention now??? Founded in 2006 this line has secured loyal followers like Beyonce, Lady Gaga, J Lo (is that what she is going by these days?), Kim Kardashian, Naomi Campbell, the list goes on and on. Top retailers like Bloomies, Nieman Marcus and Kitson LA realize how exciting, fresh, and different this line is. Who could say no to hot pink/yellow/green/blue outsoles? The shoes are made in Italy and the quality of constuction makes the sky high show-stoppers surprisingly comfortable to walk in for those who are used to a heel. As the lone woman designer/owner competing in a male-dominted market (think Louboutin, Choo, Pierre Hardy, Manolo Blahnik) she kicks some conventional ass or “junk in the trunk” as she cheekily says in this great clip from E! News. Long story short, I could not be more obsessed with Davis. Find out more about Ruthie and where you can buy her shoes on her website or check out her blog where she gives cool behind the scenes look at the life of a fashion designer.
Oh and for the yogis out there, look under the “girls in their ruthies” section of her website for a shot of me trying to make her skyscraper heels work with a lulu outfit.
