SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Gucci

I recently stumbled across these gold Gucci “Marmont” pumps, and ever since, have been unable to stop imagining how perfectly they would look with an amazing pair of dress pants or a midi skirt…  Even peeking out of a pair of flared blue jeans for a put-together weekend look.

The chunky heel is sensible enough to walk around in all day without, well, dying, and the elegance of the gold signature Gucci logo is balanced out by the preppy fringe on the toe, making this a perfect choice for both the office, after-work cocktails, and pretty much everything in-between.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Aquazzura X Poppy Delevingne

Anytime great fashion designers collaborate with coveted style icons, the end result is amazing across the board.  This season, Aquazzura and Poppy Delevingne brought their fashion forces together to create a beautiful collection of sandals and boots inspired by the bohemian style of her wedding in Morocco.

One of my favorites from the collection are these Midnight sandals, created with nude suede and metallic leather.  They are embedded with astrological symbols and turquoise stones, which look incredible contrasted against the shimmery gold.

Style ’em with a pair of oversized silk shorts à la Poppy (do a Pinterest search for Poppy Delevingne’s style if you’re confused), or with a flowing midi skirt to amplify the free-spirited feel of these sandals.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Gucci

While many people adore Gucci for their iconic bags, for me, Gucci has always sold me with their classic, yet very on-trend designs.  I’m currently obsessed with these Gucci Glitter Pumps, featuring a chunky 2″ heel.  The balance of board-room style loafers with the sparkly glitter exterior is serious enough for work, while adding on a stylish and fun whimsy.

Pair ’em with a pair of cropped trousers for work, or a ’70’s inspired mini skirt (preferably this adorable Emilio Pucci ZigZag Leather Mini Skirt….) for a chic weekend look.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Rochas

There is something utterly girly and adorable about pom-pons and fringe that gets me all nostalgic about my adolescent days of riding around in a colorful bicycle with hot pink, glittery pom-poms on the handlebars.  So, naturally, when I came across these Rochas Fringed Sling-Back Pumps, adorned with gold and pink fringe on the toes, and an gemstone embellished high heel, I immediately fell head over heels (pun always intended…I can’t not.).  If your inner child is also smitten for these pumps, you can feel really good about purchasing these $1,194 heels, as they are marked down from the original $1,190, so you’re technically saving $796.  Well, just look at you, being all economical and such!

Bonus: A portion of the commission from the line will be donated to the Japanese branch of the International Red Cross.
