le guest catch: coliena rentmeester


Many of my friends and LE CATCH fans have been emailing me their cheap chic finds (thank you all for sharing!), so I thought it would be fun to enlist some of them to contribute their "catches" from time to time. My first guest post comes from my twin sister Coliena, who's in New York for the next few weeks shooting several fashion advertising campaigns. She just emailed me this picture of her new sparkly sneakers, picked up at Steven by Steve Madden. Of course, these sneaks are a riff on the Miu Miu's I was coveting a while back. The glitter and black patent toe cap  give them a whimsical flair. Since Coco is on her feet a lot shooting, these are perfect work shoes for her. She'll wear them with slouchy boyfriend jeans and wide-legged trousers. Meanwhile, since I tend to be a little more feminine, I'm going to wear my kicks with black capri pants and skinny jeans. The only hitch to this great find is that it's not available online. But have no fear: I called the Steve Madden store in the Beverly Center and they ordered a pair for me and are shipping it. In New York they are available at the Soho outpost. They cost $89.

Oh, and in case you're interested in learning more about Coco and me and our style differences and similarities, check out this cool video of us here, which recently debuted on You Tube's new channel, The Stylish.

I look forward every day to your recommendations - thanks for not letting me slide into a style rut, and forcontinually opening my eyes to new ways to wear old favorites and incorporate new ones.

I have to have these. I called the beverly hills store and they couldn't get them for me unless I know the name of the shoe! I even sent them your link...do you know the name? Im obsessing. Sharon

Can you tell me the name of the shoes so I don't sound like a total fool if I call and try to order them? These are super and look so comfy.

The shoes are called Rigori in Glitter Multi. I had to order a size up, just fyi (they seem to run a small).
