SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Sophia Webster

Every week, I have to convince myself to expand beyond the Sophia Webster website for SPT.  Some weeks are harder than others (thanks a lot, miss Webster…).  She’s found the perfect balance for us 20 & 30 -something’s that relish in the Lisa Frank/90’s nostalgia and complementing perfectly with modern day chic.

Take these baby blue Louby’s (below) for example.  They are adorned with embroidered flowers and lavender rabbit fur trim, while contrasting beautifully with the black and white striped heel.  Not to mention, mules are pretty much everywhere this season, and are versatile enough to wear alone or with tights.

And if you must…  Net-a-Porter has an equally adorable pair in black (gasp!).

How to Wear It: Leopard Print

Leopard print is a difficult trend to master.  Too much, and you end up looking tacky.  With this animal print, the more subtle, the better.  Try mixing in details, or peeking out from underneath a shirt.  When contrasted against black, red, or a deep plum color, it will stick out and look absolutely stunning.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Isabel Marant

Isabel Marant’s aesthetic is unmistakable.  It has something of a “French bohemian meets western” feel, in the best way possible.  I’m obsessed with these adorable shearling wedge boots from Luisaviaroma.  Not only do they look so warm and cozy, they are super chic and versatile when paired with any outfit.

What’s Trending: Camoflauge

Camo is one of those perpetual on-off again trends, like denim on denim, and harem pants.

But, if Valentino Garavani says it’s in, we believe it.  No matter your outfit, only choose one camouflage piece, and choose your other pieces in one or two solid colors.  Take some inspiration from below, and pair a camouflage dress with accessories and a pop of purple heels.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: DSquared2

There are some questionable furry things happening with shoes as of lately.

 First off, there are so many furry boots and shoes that I honestly cannot tell if they are an small animal or a pair of Saint Laurent boots.  Secondly, I’m all for some good fur detailing here and there, but it is my personal belief that a fur heel is off limits.  We’d be kidding ourselves if we said 95% of shoes in our closets are made for walking, but there is a line, and that line is crossed when the shoes cannot actually be used for walking (we vote! we want options!).

[Cue End of Soapbox]

Meet these Mink & Suede Pumps from DSquared2.  I honestly feel like they could be somewhat sexy from the back, given the white mink heel, except I really cannot get over the front toe.  Actually, I think the perfect description of these would be to call them mullet shoes: They are business in the front, and a party in the back.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Moschino

Moschino would certainly never be considered a shy brand, and with Jeremy Scott as creative director, the brand has become louder and louder, which is not a bad thing in the fashion industry.  Check out these thigh-high leather boots with gold “Moschino” logo lettering emblazoned upon the buckles from Luisaviaroma.  One thing is for sure: these are definitely attention getting.

Rest in Peace, Oscar de la Renta

Rest in Peace, Oscar

Rest in Peace, Oscar

The legendary fashion designer Oscar de la Renta passed away last night at the age of 82 in his Connecticut home from complications with cancer, which he had been diagnosed with in 2006.  The Dominican-American designer specialized in evening wear, having been famed with being the couturiers to dress Jackie Kennedy in the 1960’s.  He worked for luxury brands Lanvin and Balmain, as well as under his own eponymous name.

Designer Marc Jacobs wrote: “We lost a fashion icon. Thoughts & prayers for family, friends, & all at Oscar de la Renta. We’ll miss you Oscar!”

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Zaha Hadid for United Nude

As technology becomes more prevalent in our lives, the emerging coinciding fashion trend seems to have an emphasis on futuristic.  Some of it is quirky (say, DVF for Google Glass), some of it innovative (3D-printed jewelry?  Yes, please), and some of it… questionable.

Meet the Nova Shoe Chrome Vinyl Wedges by Zaha Hadid for United Nude from Luisaviaroma.  This exclusive edition heel is an interesting take on the phantom heel wedge, with a 160mm Carbon fiber wedge heel and a 60mm Carbon fiber internal platform.  Although these are certainly heels that will get you noticed, I’m not so sure how much sex appeal they have.  But then again, if you feel like a sexy show stopper in these, that’s really all that matters, anyway.
