Later this month Salvatore Ferragamo rolls out the Red Carpet Project which will allow customers to design their own shoes. There will be six models (from sandals to stilettos) and 23 (gasp!) different colored satins. Monogramming is yet another customizable option. The process reportedly takes about six weeks but lips are tight about the cost of a pair of perfect pumps. No Ferr.
I'm not sure I subscribe to the whole idea that it's better to give than receive but Saks is making it easy with their holiday gift giving guide. Choose from over 100 designer gifts with something to suit everyone. My obsessions are the Chloe cross-body bag and the Trilogy fox fur neck muff pictured here. (Note: even Santa could not get me to use the word "snood.")
