SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Alexander McQueen

It’s no secret that Alexander McQueen and skulls go together like man buns & tattoos, or affliction jeans & bad taste (oops, did I go there?).  These black leather boots feature the trademark Swarovski-crystals embellished skull emblem on the Perspex heel of the boot.

Style these boots with a pair of cuffed (and preferably ripped) denim jeans and a tucked in, oversized white button up à la Kate Moss.  Finish with red lipstick and major backcombing for a rock’n’roll-inspired look.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Paul Andrew

Luxury fashion design is nothing new for Paul Andrew, a shoe designer who worked at various fashion houses from Alexander McQueen to Calvin Klein before launching his own line in 2013.  Every aspect of design is critical to Paul, as he personally hand draws every shoe, chooses high-end materials, and uses only the best Italian production techniques to create each pair of shoes in his collections.

This is clearly evident in these Nya Suede and Patent-Leather Sandals, which playfully combine triple-dyed bright-blue suede, black, white, and neon-pink patent leather.  As an added bonus, the cushioned memory-foam insole forms to your foot for extra comfort.  Pretty sure the cushion in itself will ruin walking in any other pair of heels ever again…

Street Style: 7 Quintessential Fashion Accessories

The most popular staples in fashion right now:

celine phantom & valentino rockstuds

1. The Bag:

The Celine Phantom Bag

celine

The days of the street style starlet clutching her Chanel 2.55 quilted bag will never be gone; however, the oversized (and mini!) Celine Phantom bag somehow turns any regular outfit into a fashionable masterpiece.

2. The Heels:

Valentino Rockstud Heels

From diamond-encrusted to black leopard print calf-hair, Valentino Rockstud heels are a street style starlet’s best friend.  The cage gives off major sex appeal, while the pointy toe elongates legs, all while looking amazingly chic, which makes for a heel that men and women both adore.

3.The Cashmere Scarf:

Burberry Scarf

Cozy and chic, this scarf is classic.  It looks perfect paired with a Burberry trench, and perfectly edgy when combined with a leather jacket.

4. The Belt:

Hermes ‘H’ Buckle Belt

Originally we were coveting the Birkin, but now there’s an obscenely long wait list for the Hermes “H” belt.

5. The Silk Scarf:

Alexander McQueen Skull Scarf

This classic skull scarf is the epitome of Alexander McQueen chic.

6. The Watch:

Bulgari Serpenti Watch

This modern reinterpretation of Elizabeth Taylor’s vintage Bulgari watch quickly became the new arm party.

7. The Random Coveted Accessory with Eyes & Fur:

Fendi Buggies

These little grumpy looking furry buggies quickly sell out every season since they emerged on the street style scene, and are only getting more and more coveted.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY

These leather calfskin Alexander McQueen booties have a sexy elegance to them, and I picture them looking exquisite paired with a black trench or an A-line skirt.  The color is a moss green, which is so fitting with the military-infusion in fashion that is so hot for this fall and winter.  The gold details bring out the color, especially the skull zipper in the front.  Get ’em here.

Sometimes, its the intricate details that really make the bigger picture stand out.  This is especially true with these beautiful Alexander McQueen leather booties.  The gold skull detail is signature McQueen style, and make the boot really stand out.  You can find them here.
