SHOE PORN THURSDAY

Rene Caovilla is an understated, yet phenomenal Italian shoe designer.  He worked with Valentino Garavini in the ’70’s, and with Christian Dior and Chanel in the 80’s.  He favored high-end fashion, combining craftsmanship with couture.  He is known for his attention to detail and high quality craftsmanship.

Although it was difficult to choose just one of my favorites of his, this pair called Tutti Frutti is unbelievably stunning.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Sophia Webster

Sophia Webster is a shoe designer who can do no wrong in my eyes.  Every one of her collections is filled with whimsical patterns, bright colors, all finished with a unique, quirky touch.  This darling pair is called “Lilico“.  The black and white polka dots and stripes are perfectly contrasted by the flower corsage on the toe, and right on trend for Spring.

Art Obsession: High Heeled Art

It’s no surprise I have a very deep love for shoes, and I think its safe to assume the feeling is mutual among the lovely readers here!  So, imagine my delight when I came across Mark Shwartz, shoe designer and artist of High Heeled Art.  The name is pretty self-explanatory, and the color, personality, and mysterious sex appeal of stilettos are as apparent in their tangible form as they are on his canvases.  Enjoy a look at more of his artwork after the jump, and head over to his site for more info and updates.
