Tuesday Shoesday, Part Two – Barbara Bui, old school obsession.

Posted on

Growing up, my beloved mom used to wear togs from Barbara Bui, who had a fabulous shop on the Upper East Side.  It was like a more couture-ish Chico’s vibe.  In the 80s, I stole some tunics and a great pair of boots.  Love.  Well, imagine my surprise when I attended a Halloween party and one of the guests was rocking the most gorgeous pair of shoes.  I asked who had designed them and almost spit out my “blood punch” (cranberry and vodka, folks, with lychee fruit eyeballs – we should have posted it!) when she said, “Barbara Bui”!  Which sounds like Baba Booey when you say it fast, right?

In big love with these beige python platforms with 5 inch heel.  But do go here for a look at some of the others – everyone should have a ShopStyle account – great fun to play with the app on your iPhone or iPad, organize your wishlists and get alerts when something goes on major sale, or do a Google image search of Barbara Bui shoes.  Enjoy.

As a mom, lifestyle expert, surfer and event planner, I love to discover the next uber-cool thing! Whether it's a shoe, a wine, a food, a photographer, a designer, a blog, a flower or a travel spot, you can find me trolling for it! I also like to blog about the kids and how running a household like this keeps me grounded. I love all things beautiful, but mostly Mr. F4 and the little ones, Ava and Leo. Things I love: sparkly anything, homecooked meals, snowy white sheets, holidays, photography, monograms, antique silver, reading everything I can get my hands on, Pilates, learning anything new, antiquing, gardening, collecting cookbooks and shoes, mixing slouchy sofas w/ sleek chairs, collecting china, the beach, Ruzzetti & Gow seashells, seersucker, Sharpies, Chanel lipgloss, counting my blessings. Drop me an email or a comment and I look forward to meeting you!
