Line To Watch: Finsk By Julia Lundsten

When Manolo Blahnik uses words like "exquisite, "divine," and "perfect" to describe your shoe designs, you know you're on the up and up (and not just in terms of heel height). That's exactly where designer Julia Lundsten is going with her line Finsk. Launched in 2004, her collection of crazy designs and quirky, sculptural heels has her dubbed as the Eames of footwear. While attending London's Royal College of Art she won the prestigious Manolo Blahnik Award 2 years in a row. Her inspiration from architecture and furniture is visible in the details of her shoes. Her love of furniture design extends to her way of thinking too -- considering the heel and the sole as the chair's legs and the upper as the seat, her shoes always seem to cradle the foot perfectly. With an unconventional style, the pumps, ankle booties, and boots all feature heels hand-carved from sustainable hard woods from Brazil. If that doesn't get you walking tall, I don't know what will! Check out the slideshow to see some of her signature styles.

    I bought these uggs boots on sale as my second pair on reccomendation from an Australian friend.. I honestly didn't know other uggs boots on sale labels were genuine. I was happy with the price and the quality was fine, I compared them with my older uggs boots on sale, the stitching and suede is pretty much the same if not better. As you've no doubt heard already they are extremely warm, which I was expecting. I sometimes wear mine with top cuff rolled over to reveal the inner fluff, I wasn't sure if could be done by looking at these pictures but it can be done. I'll wear these almost every day and so I'll most likely be back for more come Christmas.

    Thanks for the entry. I almost passed your site up in Ask but now I'm glad I clicked on through and got to read it. I'm definitely better informed now. I know quite a few people that will want to check it out. They'll definitely get a kick out of what I just read too.
