Shoe Buzz: Pink shoes inspired by Barbie for her 50th birthday

She’s come a long way, baby!  Barbie turned 50 this month and, I have to say, 50 must be the new 20 because she looks as fab as ever.  When we think of Barbie, we think fashion – in the no holds barred, all-out glam kind of way.  For this milestone birthday, everyone’s been inspired by Barbie, including the likes of Christian Louboutin and many other designers.  Barbie and I go way back, so I had to jump in on the action and find some of my own Barbie-inspired shoes, in pink of course:

Betsey Johnson Fran This girly sandal has pink shimmer, a big pink bow and it’s from Betsey Johnson, who often epitomizes classic Barbie style (Barbie’s runway show this year for NY Fashion week featured this Betsey Johnson dress).  What more can I say?  Get this pair at 6pm for $93.60, which is about 50% off retail.  Shipping adds $6.95. 

 

Carlos by Carlos Santana Accolade  Here’s another gorgeous shimmery shoe, but this one is a platform slingback style in a whisper soft shade of pink.  This ultra-feminine pair is available at Shoes.com for $110.  Use coupon code MSAVE (exp. 3/31/09) to get another 20% off, making it $88 with free shipping.   

 

Delias Nyla Jelly Heel  Barbie is all about the jelly shoes, so this pair reminds me a lot of actual shoes she’s worn over the years (like this one for example).  Delias offers this heel for $34.50.  Get $10 more dollars off when you apply coupon code DXCGIFT (exp 3/31/09) at checkout, making them $24.50 and ideal for those days when we all want to feel like a doll.  

 

oh…DEER! Gelato Barbie is never afraid to add some sparkle to her look, so this would likely be one of her favorite pairs.  It’s totally pink with tons of sequins and it’s also on sale, which is always a plus.  Onlineshoes has it marked down from $129.95 to $89.99 with free shipping.

 

Report Gala Heel  This is a super-hot pump that I imagine Barbie would wear on one of her many dates with Ken.  After 50 years of dating and only one breakup (remember that?), I imagine she still likes to dress up pretty for Ken and he would certainly appreciate this saucy pink pair.  Get it for yourself at Zappos for $135, marked down from $195.  Shipping is free. 

 

Wet Seal Zipper Front Heel  Barbie loves to shop, but I’m sure she also loves a good deal.  Get a trendy and affordable Barbie-esqe shoe with this strappy fuschia pair, which features zipper detail.  Wet Seal has it for $26.50 and coupon code ENT0809 yields free shipping.

 

Boutique Nordstrom Tally Espadrille  Barbie has to have a super-cute pink wedge for all those parties and barbeques she throws out by her Barbie pool, so I think she’d approve of this adorable ruffled and bowed style from Nordstrom.  It’s $59.95 and shipping is free when you apply coupon code SHOES at checkout until 4/13/09.
