Every fashionista knows that anything with a Tom Ford label on it exudes sexuality and has an classy allure about it that so many designers strive for.  His heels are no exception, and these Leather Gladiator Sandals are unique and beautiful.  At first glance, I was not smitten; however, after I saw the picture below, I was astounded by how amazing the chain heel looks.

Ladies, meet your new favorite summer sandal: The Mule.  While slip-ons were once reserved for the bedroom, designers gave the heel a makeover for Spring 2014, making it the new it-shoe for the season.  These Alexander Wang ‘Masha’ Sandals are one of my favorites, with their thick straps that wrap around the front and back to add an interesting look.

The laser-cut butterfly adds a touch of glamour, while the black sandal strap balances out the shoe to allow versatility to dress down or up.  My favorite part is the ornately decorated gold heel.  Wear them with an a-line skirt and gold jewelry, or as a perfect complement to a LBD.

Sophia Webster is a shoe designer who can do no wrong in my eyes.  Every one of her collections is filled with whimsical patterns, bright colors, all finished with a unique, quirky touch.  This darling pair is called “Lilico“.  The black and white polka dots and stripes are perfectly contrasted by the flower corsage on the toe, and right on trend for Spring.
