SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Charlotte Olympia

Charlotte Olympia is inarguably one of the most innovative shoe designers of today.  Diana Vreeland is recognized as “The Empress of Fashion”, and was a fashion icon of her day.  These sandals by Charlotte Olympia are inspired by the late and great Diana Vreeland and her unique and fashion-forward style.  The architectural details and luxurious textures make these sandals truly remarkable.

While her collection of flats are absolutely stunning, she has recently come out with more heels in her namesake fashion line (much to my excitement!).  These comic-book inspired mules are both fun and fashion-forward.  Wear them with a pair of high-waisted, cropped skinny jeans and a white t-shirt or paired with a simple red shift dress to complete the look.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY

With clear-lucite heels and the perfect complement of mint and printed yellow, these Opening Ceremony sandals are perfect for a summer afternoon.  Pair them with a white sundress or a yellow jumper, throw on some sunglasses, and you’re ready to go.  Side note: That paper-thin, antithesis-of-a-platform-like toe is huuuuge this season (in case you hadn’t noticed).  I started to see them everywhere, from Louboutins to Jimmy Choos.  It reminds me a bit of bridesmaid shoes from the ’90’s, but it’s starting to grow on me (despite my love for platforms).

SHOE PORN THURSDAY

MSGM has the most darling shoes, particularly this pair of funky summer sandals.  I love the embellishments, fringe, and blush rose color.  The most amazing part of this sandal?  The pink leopard print sole!  Pair them with a pair of cropped white jeans and t-shirt for a casual, chic look.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY

This winter, I bought these Rag & Bone Classic Newbury Boots.  Although the heel is only 3 1/2 inches (shorter than 95% of heels in my closet), I wanted them for an everyday boot where I could do some walking while still looking chic, and adding some height.  I didn’t expect to get so much use out of them, but I really have worn them on an almost daily basis.  So, when I found the summer equivalent, I knew I had to show them with you lovely readers!

Without further ado, I introduce to you these leather open toe ‘Wyatt’ sandals from Rag & Bone:

The blush and black color combination goes with everything, and would look especially great paired with a sundress or a romper.
