SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Nicholas Kirkwood

What better way to wear a pop of color than on your feet?  

Colorblocked shoes were seen all over the Spring 2015 runways, from blue & pink at Versace to green, blue, pink, & yellow at Burberry.  Nicholas Kirkwood shows off his unique style with an orange, yellow, pink, & blue pump adorned with a chunky silver metallic heel.  Although it seems at first glance it would be difficult to pair such a colorful shoe with many outfits, I’ve found that the more colors in a shoe, the easier it tends to be, as each one of the subtle colors blends perfectly with a solid color outfit on top.  Or, pick one or two of the colors, and match it with a printed dress in the corresponding color, and voilà!  A perfectly styled outfit that’s right on trend.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Alexandre Birman

Alexandre Birman is known for using exotic animal skins, such as water-snake, crocodile, lizard, tilapia, and even ostrich, in rich colors to create handcrafted, modern and uniquely sexy heels.  The Brazilian designer debuted strong in the U.S. market in 2008 via Bergdorf’s, Saks, and Neiman Marcus.

These red caged peep-toe booties are crafted from suede with python trim to add an alluring touch.  I love the contrast between the elegant and exotic notes.

My favorite part of these pumps is the red snakeskin covered sole.
