SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Dior

“Women, with their intuitive instinct, understood that I dreamed not only of making them more beautiful, but happier too.” -Christian Dior.

 

Dior is known for their high-quality, intricately designed pieces.  A shining example are these Cognac Calfskin Ankle Boots by Dior, a perfect boot to accompany the autumn weather.  They first debuted in the Autumn/Winter 2015-2016 runway show, and are composed of calfskin and crocodile.  The construction was inspired by the Opanca technique, an old-fashioned way of constructing shoes in which they are hand-sewn and use a double needle sewing technique to attach the sock lining, sole, and upper part of the shoes to each other in one process.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Chiara Ferragni

Chiara Ferragni, the well-known fashion blogger who goes by the name of The Blonde Salad.  The street style starlet has collaborated with many well-known designers, including the likes of Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior, Tommy Hilfiger, and J. Brand, before starting her own brand of adorable & funky footwear.

While her collection of flats are absolutely stunning, she has recently come out with more heels in her namesake fashion line (much to my excitement!).  These comic-book inspired mules are both fun and fashion-forward.  Wear them with a pair of high-waisted, cropped skinny jeans and a white t-shirt or paired with a simple red shift dress to complete the look.
