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.

The Sexiest Red Heels for Every Price Range

trends and tribulations

From taxi shoes to masquerade masked heels to the infamous Sophia Webster pencil heels, I have a more than unhealthy obsession of shoes.  However, there’s one thing missing.  I have no red heels.

After perusing website after website searching for the perfect pair, I found (as I so often do) too many pairs than will fit in either of my two shoe closets at this time (that is, until I figure out how I can transform my guest room into an adequate shoe room)…  I found pairs from every price range, and the next best thing to owning the shoes is sharing them with you lovely readers.

trends & tribulations

Pair them with a pair of cuffed denim jeans and a white button-up, or dress them up with a LBD and fire-engine red lipstick for the ultimate show-stopping look.  Enjoy!
