Kat Maconie is a British fashion designer who started her eponymous in 2009.  She is known for her bold colors, strong prints, architectural shapes, metallic details, all infused with her signature tongue-in-cheek attitude.

With so many fun and lively designs to choose from, it’s difficult to choose a favorite, but these colorful India heels caught my eye (well, naturally…).  With embroidery detailing and a bright suede chunky heel, these sandals are perfect for a sunny Spring or Summer day.  Wear ’em with a white, blue, yellow, or green sundress for a perfect mix of playful and chic.

French designer Pierre Hardy is known for making statement shoes with a unique and modern touch.  His shoes are anything but boring, as evident with his giant eye shoes and futuristic, sculptural shoes.   This pair of boat shoes are emblazoned with a detachable colorful shoelace motif, which naturally raises the cute factor by 110%.  Wear ’em with cropped, white skinny jeans or with a loose-fitting midi skirt for a chic and unique look.  And simply detach the motif for a more professional style.

Miu Miu’s glitter-emblazoned pumps made headlines after their retro-inspired runway debut for Fall/Winter 2015-16 at Paris Fashion Week.  Their block heel is on-trend for this season, and the baby blue details and cartoon-sized button add the perfect eccentricity to what could very easily become blah.  Pair these heels with a pair of flared, dark denim trousers & a fitted turtleneck, or with a shift dress and a contrasting, candy-colored jacket.

J. W. Anderson was nominated for the Womenswear & Menswear Designer of the Year by British Fashion Awards earlier this week, penning him against the likes of Victoria Beckham and Christopher Kane.  He couldn’t be more deserving of this award, with his innovative and unique designs in both the men’s and women’s sector of fashion.  Check out these loafers created with suede, leather, and a varnished, marbled effect on the heel.

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!

Due to the ridiculous rather high number of LBD’s & LBH’s (Little Black Heels) in my closet(s), I started to get picky when adding any more of them to my wardrobe.  They have to really tickle my fancy, per se, or, sadly, they’ll just be taking up more coveted closet space.

(Side Note: Since I moved into a new apartment earlier this summer, I had to go from two walk-in closets to a tiny little one.  Needless to say, it’s been tough, but a learning experience in minimalism…  I’ve also taken to decorating my apartment with shoes as art to make up for storage (i.e. shoes intertwined with my books, in my living room, laundry room, etc.)…)

Take, for example, these beauties from DSquared2’s Fall-Winter 2015-16 collection.  They have just enough glitz and glam to make them stand out, and simply exude sex appeal.  I love how the fringe, metal zippers, and chains give them a rock’n’roll vibe, while the all-black color keeps the sandals from looking overdone.

Wear ’em with cuffed blue denim, or with a structured leather skirt and chiffon blouse for a sexy, edgy look.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Gianmarco Lorenzi

Gianmarco Lorenzi is all about glamour, luxury, high fashion, and lavish extravagance, among other glittery things fashionistas dreams are made of.

So, how could I resist showing off this shiny and beautiful leather sandal from the Summer 2015 collection?  I simply cannot think of anything this sandal wouldn’t go with, but am dreaming of rocking ’em paired with a pastel romper or dressed up with culottes and a high neckline.

Luxury fashion design is nothing new for Paul Andrew, a shoe designer who worked at various fashion houses from Alexander McQueen to Calvin Klein before launching his own line in 2013.  Every aspect of design is critical to Paul, as he personally hand draws every shoe, chooses high-end materials, and uses only the best Italian production techniques to create each pair of shoes in his collections.

This is clearly evident in these Nya Suede and Patent-Leather Sandals, which playfully combine triple-dyed bright-blue suede, black, white, and neon-pink patent leather.  As an added bonus, the cushioned memory-foam insole forms to your foot for extra comfort.  Pretty sure the cushion in itself will ruin walking in any other pair of heels ever again…
