SHOE PORN THURSDAY

Alice + Olivia have come a long way since it’s initial collections of low-rise, fitted pants.  While the designer, Stacy Bendet, initially wanted to create pants that were the center of an outfit, it seems the same inspiration was applied to these pumps.  I love the multicolored patent leather, and the tiny details, such as the red lips on the open toe, and fishnet covered heel.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY

In every woman’s wardrobe, there are far too many LBDs and LBHs (Little Black Heels), and reasonably so.  If you’re ever in a pinch, they’re the perfect go-to items.  However, with so many options to choose from, I’ve found I have to be fairly picky when it comes to buying more- they have to be my new absolute favorites, or they’re out.  Luckily, I have a pretty open mind, and I’ve found another pair I’m smitten by…

Meet the Fendi perforated leather and suede boots:

Sometimes, you have to see them on for the full effect...

Perforated leather, scalloped suede trim, and honeycomb caged embossed heel…  Amazing.

Dolce & Gabbana is known for their beautifully intricate designs, which, every season, never end up failing to amaze me.  These Inlaid Wood Leather Sandals embody their signature glamour of their Sicilian roots.  The decorative wooden heel is inlaid with a gold-toned coin.  Show them off with a gold or black dress to complement their alluring flair.

Eye motifs have been trending everywhere in fashion as of lately.  From patterns to bold eye-shaped hardware, it’s all in the eyes.  Kenzo nailed it with their eye-patterned tops, scarves, and, well, everything, and Delfina Delettrez has some amazing jewelry starring diamond-encrusted eye motifs this season.

These Eye Pumps by Chrissie Morris are right on trend, and the neutral cream color complements the funky evil eye perfectly.  These pop-art inspired pumps are balanced by the ladylike closed toe and thin 4.5 inch heel.

Meet the modern fashionista’s equivalent to the glass slipper, the crystallized Rockstud slingback heels by Valentino.  The signature Rockstud style became huge after being introduced in Fall 2010.  They marked the beginning of a more edgier Valentino, a large change from the feminine, ladylike style of the original Valentino line.  There has been dozens and dozens (hundreds?  thousands?!) of variations of the Rockstud shoes, from flats to kitten heels to stilettos.  I own two pairs (one black and one in “poudre”), and I have to say, they are super sexy, comfortable, and also make every outfit look fashionable.

These in particular caught my eye, with crystallized leather and pyramid studs inlaid with pave crystals.  They would be the perfect complement to an evening gown, or paired with a feminine mermaid skirt.

L.K. Bennett is a British luxury fashion brand with a modern, classic heritage.  To be completely honest, I’m usually not a huge fan of L.K. Bennett heels, as they are classic, but a little too plain for my liking.  After all, Bennett’s equal emphasis on comfort and glamour earned her the nickname “Queen of the Kitten Heel”.  (One look in my closet and comfortable kitten heels are the farthest from what you’ll find…).

However, I recently came across these darling light pink sling backs from L.K. Bennett.  I’m not sure if it’s the sugary pink color, the feminine ruffles, or the combination of all the details, but I think I’m in love.

How cute would these be to try out the heels and sock trend?  Pair them with a light pink pair of socks with ruffles at the top for a ultra-femme look.

With clear-lucite heels and the perfect complement of mint and printed yellow, these Opening Ceremony sandals are perfect for a summer afternoon.  Pair them with a white sundress or a yellow jumper, throw on some sunglasses, and you’re ready to go.  Side note: That paper-thin, antithesis-of-a-platform-like toe is huuuuge this season (in case you hadn’t noticed).  I started to see them everywhere, from Louboutins to Jimmy Choos.  It reminds me a bit of bridesmaid shoes from the ’90’s, but it’s starting to grow on me (despite my love for platforms).
