SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Giannico

Giannico came onto my radar this past year after coming across a pair of Andy Warhol banana heels (there’s also a Picasso-inspired pair that’s to-die-for).  With whimsical, fun-loving designs, styles, and lots of bright colors (for my inner 5-year old), I’m completely smitten with the designer, Nicolò Beretta’s designs.

My latest loves are these yellow, blue and white mules that are simply perfect for Spring.

Giannico, $878

Pair them with a midi skirt for a brunch date, or with a pair of white culottes to accentuate the bright pop of these mules.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Dolce & Gabbana

I have to hand it to Dolce & Gabbana for their unbelievable detailed shoes, always on trend with the theme for their season’s collection.  Who could forget their wood & leather sandals or their African-inspired wedges?  And, of course, there’s no beating Italian shoes.  

Check out these Sicilian folklore pumps.  Their elegant and classic design brings out the amazing piece of art covering the shoe.  Wear these shoes with a white or cream pantsuit for work, or with a feminine A-line dress for play.

Funny side note on Dolce & Gabbana: When my wonderful parents came to visit me in New York, we walked down Madison Avenue.  As we were walking past the Dolce & Gabbana store, my dad said, “I know Dolce means ‘candy’ or ‘sweet’ in Spanish, so what does ‘Gabbana’ mean?”  So adorable.
