It Might As Well Be Spring

I’m tingling all over with excitement and I can’t keep from smiling. My cheeks are flushed and my heart rate has noticeably quickened.  A wave of sublime satisfaction has gently washed over me and if I smoked, now would be the perfect time to light up.

No, I didn’t just have sex.  Rather…  

The new Spring/Summer 2015 line of Chie Mihara Shoes have officially arrived!!

I’ve spent the past hour or so poring over the latest offerings on the official Chie Mihara website, loading them up to feature today on Sole Searching.  Of course there are too many to share, but I’ve chosen a few pairs to highlight and perhaps to educate those of you who have not yet discovered this amazing women’s shoe designer based in Spain.chie curi-Bchie junichichie simonechie expo starI’m partial to the colorful designs. So unexpected. The examples above are classic shoe types; peep toe t-strap, Roman sandal, mary jane, pump. It’s the color, texture and materials that make them unique.  Don’t you love that shade of mustard yellow?  And the blue polka dots and green gingham are at once nostalgic and new.  Do you love the water color effect on the pumps?  The orange trim is perfect. They might not fit into everybody’s wardrobe but they demand to be admired.  I tell my husband it’s like visiting an art museum.

The other thing I love about her line is the variety of heel heights.  For every towering wedge there is an equal offering of mid and low alternatives.  For instance, here is a range offered in the Hawaiian print style..chie vetcuchie hawaiin platform chie hawiian chunk chie hawiian print ox

Each season I can’t wait to see her oxfords… chie dijon oxford chie durui chie konoko gravity popeThere is a definite retro vibe in most of her designs… chie shoyu chie red polka dotchie womanchie laio-a

But, she’s also on trend.  For example, the platform sandal.  I’m drawn to this pair but there are several others.chie okoro

And I love these sandals because they manage to make a two inch heel look as sexy as a five inch stilleto.chie silver sandal

Lastly, you have to love her sense of humor.  I can’t see myself wearing these, but somebody out there is drooling over these Cruella de Vil lovelies.  Maybe they were meant for you?chies crazy
