If you love shoes as much as I do, you want to show off that enthusiasm in every way you can. One fantastic way to display your favorite accessories all year long, in any room of the house or even the office, is with a chic shoe calendar!
Now, your favorite bookstore may have one or two, but by far the best selection of stunning, sophisticated shoe calendars is only to be found online. Here are just a few of my picks for 2008:
Shoes Page-A-Day Gallery Calendar 2008: This gorgeous, full-color page-a-day gallery calendar is inspired by Linda O’Keeffe’s international bestseller Shoes. It provides 314 pages (Saturday and Sunday are combined) of everything from antique slippers to wild wedges to polka-dotted pumps.
Just the Right Shoe Desk Calendar: The award-winning “Just the Right Shoe” line of miniature collectible shoes designed by Raine are the focus of this mini desk calendar. Each weekday page displays a different shoe and its description are on each weekday page, and each weekend page features an original shoe sketch by Raine accompanied by a fun quote about shoes.
Andy Warhol: Taming of the Shoe: Pop icon and artist Andy Warhol, with his unique style, is know for transforming the mundane to whimsical. In this calendar, you’ll see the elegance, sass and class of this beloved accessory through his eyes in a number of illustrations, providing with a year’s worth of distinctive style.
Shoes 2008 Mini Calendar: For18 months, this mini wall calendar will delight your eyes with brilliantly colored images from the Costume Institute at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The collection includes shoes from such renowned designers as Emilio Pucci, Vivienne Westwood, Salvatore Ferragamo, Roger Vivier, and Isabel Canovas.
365 Days of Shoes Calendar 2008: Also inspired by Linda O’Keeffe’s bestselling Shoes, this fabulous picture-a-day wall calendar offers the ultimate for shoe lovers like you and me. All in full color, there’s one large photograph at the top of each themed month (sexy red shoes for February, wedding shoes for June, boots for December, etc) and smaller daily photographs in the grid below. It’s like a daily parade of footwear … you won’t be able to tear your eyes away.
