ON MY RADAR: Mark & James by Badgley Mischka

A few weeks ago I was moseying through the Nordstrom Shoe section, as I often do, when I spotted a fabulous shoe.  When I looked at the brand name, Mark & James by Badgley Mischka, I became curious and did some research.

In 2009, Badgley Mischka launched Mark & James as a more contemporary and accessible ready-to-wear collection. Stars like Eva Longoria and Halle Berry have been spotted wearing the line on the red carpet! Most recently, they added shoes to the assortment and I must say- I'm impressed:

  Mark and James by Badgley Mischka Suede Sandal for $265 @ Nordstrom

Look at the profile? So stunning and sexy! I love the caged-rope and zipper back detail. Don't even get me started on the recessed platform. These may be my first shoe purchase of 2011 because I'm seriously gaga over them!

 Mark and James by Badgley Mischka 'Maybel' Slingback for $245 @ Nordstrom

The wood platform works so well with the blush hue. I also appreciate the textured sole that peeks out at the toe and back.

As of now there are only two styles available but I'm sure we will see more in the future. What do you think? I'm looking forward to more beauties by Mark and James. They are definitely on my radar!
