Trendy Wednesday - Marcello Toshi Creazioni

I had decided prior to landing in Paris that window shopping would be sufficient for this trip.  While I had considered that it would be fun to get a little something special from either of the flagship stores of Chanel or Louis Vuitton, once we arrived it seemed frivolous to spend time searching through shops whose merchandise I could buy online (and in USD!!).  So I concluded that I would only buy something if it was original, unique, and not something I could find easily here at home.

I mentioned HERE that as we were window shopping in the Marais in Paris, I spotted a pair of shoes that stopped me in my tracks.  I mean literally stopped me!  I knew it was shoe love at first sight!  I felt like Cinderella as the gentleman working in the shop put them on my feet and they slid right on.  A perfect fit!

Here they are... what do you think?!?!
I love all of the details! 

After talking for a while with the salesman, I came to learn that each pair of Marcello Toshi shoes are made by hand in Lima, Peru.  The craftmanship and artistry in each pair is incredible. 
And all that business about wanting to get something in Paris that is hard to find here certainly applies.  I have had very little luck finding online retailers for the brand.  There are a few pairs for sale HERE, but the sizes are limited and some have been previously worn in runway shows. 

From their website, here are some others I thought were partcicularly beautiful!

I love that Kelly Green!  And the white stiching is such a great detail.

I'll take this pair in white or black!

These would add such a great touch to a classic black suit.


Who knew a black pump could be so adorable!


Chocolate brown and blue - my favorite color combination!

Have you heard of this brand?  Do you have any tips on where to find them here?

  10. CREAZIONI; Possible that a shoe (red leather , cross strap, elastic back strap, low-heeled ) is still manufactured? I regret not buying every color in Paris.

    Please let me know if my request for a similar pair is possible.
