To a T-Strap

Does three make a trend? I think so, especially when it’s these three T-Strap pumps  by Manolo Blahnik left, Chanel top right, and Céline bottom right.

  • Love the T strap at any heel height. It elongates and narrows the foot. I hope there will be even more choices moving into the next season.

  • Love the way T-straps look, but I’ve yet to find one that’s comfortable. I had high hopes for the Chloe version last year, but it was very stiff and uncomfortable. Please post if you find any good ones.

  • The Barbara Martelo shoes are superb. Perfect with jeans.

  • Love a good T-strap! Preston, do you have a link to the shoes on the left? Thanks!

  • Who are the pair on left with denim? Thanks!

  • The pair on the left are Manolo Blahnik Turgimod and here.

  • I saw those t strap shoes on Barbara Martelo on Instagram. I love them! She’s got an excellent collection of Manolos but I can never find my size. They don’t make a lot of size 6’s.

  • Now I want them! Where can I find the Blahniks in black? The texture is superb!

  • Preston and friends ~ I would like a quality short sleeve black T shirt in nice cotton (not flimsy) and a short sleeve black turtleneck sweater, preferably cashmere. Any ideas anyone?

    PaulaSeptember 27th, 2018  11:54 PM

  • I recommend calling the shop in NYC, they may have them in black.

  • Preston, what are your 2021 thoughts on the Manolo Turgimod style? I just found my size at an excellent price on the secondhand market and in looking for additional photos I came across this post. (My style is usually a few years behind.) I’m picturing them in autumn/winter with a long sleeved silk midi dress. Am I crazy for planning holiday party/wedding outfits in July?

  • Sounds like a great find. I’m wearing a 2012 Valentino dress to an event and it looks just as good today. The Turgimod is a forever shoe, and if you get it resale, you’ll have won the fashion lottery. I’m still looking for a pair of LV jeans from SS15, some things just don’t look dated – the new classics.

  • Thank you, Preston, you convinced me to get them. I’m so excited. There are still many sizes left at a great price, so I wanted to do a post on them. Do you happen to have Barbara Martelo’s original image? I scoured her Instagram account but couldn’t find it. Thank you in advance!

    MarchelineJuly 18th, 2021  11:01 AM

  • So glad this post got “resurrected”. I saw these on Marcheline’s Instagram and immediately knew they were me. I just found a brand new pair on TheReal Real in my size. YOu are right, I feel as if I hot the fashion lottery! Thank you Marcheline and Preston!
