I'm back from our trip to France and I've finally started selling my
shoes on Etsy, the site for handmade things from small designers. If
you don't know about it, it's really worth checking out, starting with
my Store of course ; )
The newly available Roman Shoe at right is available in two colors and sizes 7 - 10!
As always, feel free to ask me any questions or make custom requests
I am readying new posts to all of my blogs this week, so stay tuned! It's
easy to sign up for updates, or check back when you are thinking of it!
Here's a nice bit of Press Coverage for my handmade mules in Los Angeles Magazine from December 2009. Click on an image if you want to see it bigger, thanks.
"The couture mules of Wendy Holden
typify L.A.’s high-low aesthetic. Backless with modest heels, they’re
almost as casual as flip-flops but are topped with stiff fabric (floral
prints, stripes, gingham) that evokes the drapery of Versailles and
finished with rosettes, bows, or crystal embellishments. Holden, who
studied with the craftsmen behind the costumes of Old Hollywood
designers Edith Head and Adrian, sketches out the shoes, sometimes
incorporating upholstery material, in her Silver Lake home."
These are the sandals I made in India -- the jewels are huge! I have
sizes 7 - 8 - 9 - 10 available in both colors. The darker bronze color
- Bollywood - has a Princess Heel, a bit higher than the silver ones,
which are called Miami ; ) You'll notice that the strap curves across
the foot instead of cutting straight across. This has the dual
advantage of hugging your foot beautifully as well as looking much more
graceful! Email me to ascertain fit and sizing. XOXOX

So far I will have pages for New Styles, Classic Styles, Styles Available for Immediate Gratification (including samples for sale), Ordering Information, Company Information, and More About Me ; ) Do stop by to see photo albums and more stuff as January progresses, thanks! There are links on this page for you to subscribe so you can see how the site is progressing. XOXO Wendy
