SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Chloe Gosselin

Chloe Gosselin is a newcomer on the design scene, and is sure to be a name you’ll be hearing more about in the coming months.  After working as an internationally recognized model for almost a decade, she studied shoemaking at FIT in New York, along with Ars Sutoria in Milan.  The French designer blends her heritage culture, along with influences throughout her travels, to create shoes that invoke feelings and thoughts; inspired by music, contemporary art, photography and vintage aesthetics.

Check out these Plumeria pumps by Chloe Gosselin below, adorned with emerald Orylag fur.  Wear them with an A-line mini skirt and black tights for a fashionable fall look.

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: Rochas

Rochas never ceases to amaze me with their innovative, yet delicately romantic designs.  Take, for example, these beautiful velvet floral-print embroidered platform pumps below, which are a perfect transitional piece to wear this summer and layered with tights for the upcoming fall and winter season.

For summer, pair them with a loose-fitting swing dress and floppy hat for a chic and feminine look.

The pantsuit has come a long ways since the 1980’s.  It’s reinvention is both powerful and sexy, with slim cuts, cropped pants, and even worn with lingerie (or, for the more daring crowd, nothing) underneath.  For inspiration, look to celebrities and street style stars who are wearing it in different and new, fashion-forward ways.  Try it in a bold color, like Aida Domenech, above, with sneakers or oxfords, or in a sleeveless style.  The options are endless.

Take some inspirational cues from the 10 outfit ideas below to see how you can style the power pant suit into your wardrobe.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Valentino

As we welcome in warmer weather in the northern hemisphere, we also trade in our parkas for bikinis and our winter boots for strappy sandals.  Check out this pair of Valentino Butterfly Lucite-Heel sandals.  The 4-inch block heel is on trend for the summer, and the whimsical heel is stunning and totally unique.
