Charlotte Olympia: Poodles & Paris

It's Friday! Let's do something light 'n fluffy today! A little frou frou shoe & handbag candy if you will.

Has everyone heard of Charlotte Dellal Olympia? Yes! No! Maybe So? Well, here's a quick synopsis. She's 32 (5/6/81). She interned at Ungaro & Giambattista Valli and opened her first store in Mayfair, London May 2010. When asked how she would describe the Charlotte Olympia woman. She replied, "Someone who dresses from the feet up!" (source) (source)

Charlotte always comes out with several fantasy (some designs are practical), over-the-top collections each year. I always look forward to seeing the themes. Her Spring 2013 shoe and handbag collection is all about poodles, Paris, kitties and floral creations. Yes, think PINK! Think rose gardens! Yummy croissants! The Eiffel Tower! That's what it's all about. The collection is huge and surprisingly somewhat still available! Her 2013 Fall Collection is all about The Big Bad Wolf, Sleeping Beauty, The Frog Prince and more...yes, Fairytales!

I put a couple of inspiration boards together for your viewing pleasure. The shoes in the middle are flats. What type of shoe girl are you? You guys already know, I'm a ballet flat/sandal kind of girl. Do you go for over the top? Conservative? Comfy? Shout it out in my comments section. Have A Great Weekend Everybody!

  1. Oh so many lovely items! I love them all! I'm drawn to heels but my feet surely like ballerinas or flats better. Haha! I hope you have a really fabulous Friday!

  2. Well, you know I do love shoes, but I think I actually tend to buy more flats and wedges in these recent months. I liked her collection! Happy Friday Kim! xx

  4. Hello Sweets! How I love Charlotte Olympia's work! Years ago a good girlfriend traipsed back from o/s with a pink poodle printed umbrella for me in their luggage! I love it. How good are those espadrilles and rose trim shoes? Xxxx

  10. Why-oh-why do I have to be the person who cannot walk in heels?! I love her shoes, they're so sweet and quirky and I always think that fab shoes are a great way to make a simply outfit stand out. Have a lovely weekend xo

  11. I hadn't heard of Charlotte, but her designs are fab! I wear high heels, but I'm much more cautious (these days) in ensuring it's a pair I can wear comfortably. Happy Friday! :) T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

  14. The collection is so cute! Love that poodle purse :)

    I'm definitely a flats girl - not by choice of course! After a knee injury a while ago heels of any sort were out. I'm easing back into them now cos I'm a shortie and I missed them, haha.

  53. The poodle purse is so cute and what a selection of shoes - such creative designs. You probably already know from my blog that I'm a shoe addict. Ballet flats during the day and definitely heels for a touch more glamour in the evening. The Marianne style ones here have caught my eye!
