Gretta's Got It: Shoes
Updating your shoe wardrobe can get expensive, but, tonight, Seven's style expert Gretta Monahan shows us how to get this year's styles for less. Here's Gretta's Got It.
WSVN -- Gretta Monahan: "Spring 2008, it's all about this: color bold and bright. Animal prints can't get enough and metallics in every tone you can think about it. So, see, there is so much to choose from, and I went around and scouted the best in the designer hot shoes."
Gretta Monahan: "So, little assignment for my friend Danny here at Shop Daja. I asked her to go out and find these looks for less. So, I'm dying to see, what did you come up with?"
Danielle Filler: "It was fun. There's a lot of stores to choose from where you can get inexpensive shoes but get that designer look and feel."
Gretta Monahan: "The style must-have this season is a strappy sandal in bold bright colors, even neon will do. So, all right, what did you find?"
Danielle Filler: "Well, I got lucky, went right into Macy's, found this beautiful pair of Ralph Lauren for half the price."
Gretta Monahan: "OK, So the bold bright colors too much for you? No Problem, because neutrals are in, but the way to bring it up-to-date is you got to make sure it has a little bit of metallic."
Gretta Monahan: "Another unbelievably hot trend this year is gladiator sandals and, look, we have three price points here. Can you guess which one is the designer? I'll tell you. It's this one. These go for a cool $200."
Gretta Monahan: "These are Nine West. They are half the price of that. I love these, they are my favorite."
Danielle Filler: "$50 at Bakers."
Gretta Monahan: "And, honestly, guys, these look just like the ones I saw on the runway in Paris."
Gretta Monahan: "One of the biggest looks you're going to see everywhere is big, bold buckle details on the toe."
Gretta Monahan: "Here we have our designer around the $200 zone."
Gretta Monahan: "Danny, I am weak for these. I love the whole look, I love the hardware, the heel is so designer. It's amazing. All right, how much?"
Danielle Filler: "$26.99 at Target."
Gretta Monahan: "Get out!"
Gretta Monahan: "The same heel detail they're using in Louis Vitton. This is amazing."
Gretta Monahan: "Another trend must-have: big, bold wide straps. You can start here. These walked the runway for a cool $600."
Gretta Monahan: "These I just love from Bakers. How much?"
Danielle Filler: "About $50, Bakers again."
Gretta Monahan: "Still a must-have, metallics. I have a $200 pair here."
Danielle Filler: "Then I went to Target and found these for $24.99. If you look up close to the more expensive Via Spigas, very similar."
Gretta Monahan: "If you're going to shop like a pro for the look for less, you have to zero in on the main designer feature of the moment, and this season it's all about the heel."
Gretta Monahan: "This is what we call a cone heel, and look at this Stella McCartney. Her heel is made of wood, which makes it very chic and modern."
Gretta Monahan: "On this heel it's a classic stacked, but what makes it hot is the little added metal details."
Gretta Monahan: "I don't know about you, girls, but I am just so thrilled that I don't have to leave any of these styles behind. I'm Gretta for Gretta's Got it."
