I closely watched the runways this September and reported on the shoes seen at the major fashion shows in New York, London, Milan & Paris. I love Style.com’s accessories index and they just recently published the spring bags, shoes & jewelry.

Each season I enjoy picking out my favorite designs and comparing it with the editor’s selections. There are usually 1 or 2 matches (see last season) however this season our choices were widely different.

I will be doing another post this week on my favorite shoes from all sources including look books (since not all designs & collections are posted on Style.com) and another post on shoe trends.

Do you see any must-haves? I really love – okay, all of them really, but could live in the Roberto Cavalli, Diane von Furstenberg & Gianvito Rossi sandal.
