SHOE PORN THURSDAY: DSquared2

DSquared2‘s shoe game has gotten so serious.  They have been creatively killing it, from high-heeled ice-skates, to vertebrae heels, to brass knuckles, and beyond.  Their latest creation brings me back to the days where tying shoelaces was a feat in itself, but luckily, there were those convenient no-tie, curly Q shoelaces to wear on your sneaks.  These black sandals are tied up with multi-colored ropes that may conjure up some nostalgia from your childhood, too.

Wear them with an athleisure-inspired outfit, such as a black racerback dress or a pair of sporty culottes and a red or lime green tank to balance it out.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: DSquared2

Due to the ridiculous rather high number of LBD’s & LBH’s (Little Black Heels) in my closet(s), I started to get picky when adding any more of them to my wardrobe.  They have to really tickle my fancy, per se, or, sadly, they’ll just be taking up more coveted closet space.

(Side Note: Since I moved into a new apartment earlier this summer, I had to go from two walk-in closets to a tiny little one.  Needless to say, it’s been tough, but a learning experience in minimalism…  I’ve also taken to decorating my apartment with shoes as art to make up for storage (i.e. shoes intertwined with my books, in my living room, laundry room, etc.)…)

Take, for example, these beauties from DSquared2’s Fall-Winter 2015-16 collection.  They have just enough glitz and glam to make them stand out, and simply exude sex appeal.  I love how the fringe, metal zippers, and chains give them a rock’n’roll vibe, while the all-black color keeps the sandals from looking overdone.

Wear ’em with cuffed blue denim, or with a structured leather skirt and chiffon blouse for a sexy, edgy look.

Sneakers have quickly become a huge fashion trend.  Whether worn with a skirt, or played down with a pair of leggings, sneakers are all over the street and the runway.  It’s not surprising, seeing as how the line between activewear and everyday clothing is becoming further and further blurred.

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.
