The Ferragamo Vara

The Salvatore Ferragamo 'Vara' turns 35 this year.  I admit that today I went a little overboard wearing 'Vara'...I carried my pocketbook, wore my pumps, and also the new 'Vara Bow Bracelet."


I own many pairs of Salvatore Ferragamo pumps but I admit that the 'Vara' is my favorite!


The logo on the grosgrain ribbon bow is right up my conservative alley.  These are two of my favorite Ferragamo purses...the little one has the iconic gold Ferragamo chain shoulder strap.

I've had these Ferragamo headbands for years...I need a navy blue one next!

This is my newest purchase...the 'Vara Bow Bracelet'...I need the red one next!


I have a couple of the Ferragamo fragrances which I love, but Signorina caught my eye while I was in Vegas!  The scent sold me, along with the cute bow!

I actually forgot that I have this fabulous Ferragamo scarf given to me by an old Italian flame...

I have other classic Ferragamo pieces, but the 'Vara' is by far my absolute favorite.  I always call the pumps my "Church Lady Shoes."

The iconic mid heel pump with the grosgrain bow and gold plaque bearing the Ferragamo logo was introduced in 1978.  The ever-so-cute 'Varina' ballet flat was introduced in 2007.  In celebration of 35 years of the 'Vara', Ferragamo is offering to customize your own 'Vara' or 'Varina'.

Well, I'm looking at possibly customizing a 'Varina' but I must have all leather.  I'm not sure if they will offer that as most of the options are in patent leather.  We will see!


Visit the Ferragamo site to see all the cute options they are offering during their 35 Years of 'Vara' Celebration!

Y'all, I'm heading up to Mama's house in Georgia and will be back to blogging late this Summer!  Ciao!!!

I LOVE the Vara too! I have them in navy, black, and black patent and am probably going to order the Varina in navy blue to wear with cropped pants. I recently wrote a post about investment dressing and the Vara was included in my "must have" list. Love the bracelet! You have great style!

I call Varas "Muffy Pumps". I love them. They are so comfortable. I want a pair of navy Varinas. Maybe on my next trip to Nashville or Atlanta, they will be mine.

Miss Janice,
I am so glad you did this post! I just purchased my first pair of Vara's. I saw that they came out in a new color 'Nude', and thought it was time. The color is perfect and they are so comfortable. When we were little, my friends and I called them "rich lady shoes". No explanation necessary.

Warmly, Kathleen

Have owned several pair in my life...and never swayed. I am so happy to see them enjoying new found fame, well deserved, being the classic that they are!

Love all your Ferragamo goodies. I have two pairs of shoes but not the Vara style.
