SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Laurence Dacade

Laurence Dacade is known for having whimsical and unique prints in her designs.  The French designer’s philosophy is “There is no need to suffer for beauty”, and it is apparent in her comfortable shoe styles that are both fashionable & functional.

Check out these darling David Bowie -inspired booties.  If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you know that we are obsessed with Bowie’s style.  Wear them with oversized, worn-in denim and a sexy cropped top to balance out the bold style of the boots.  

And don’t forget red lipstick & some serious self-confidence.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Delpozo

Delpozo’s new creative director Josep Font has been a breath of fresh air for the brand following Jesus del Pozo’s passing in 2011.  He has managed to remain true to the brand’s Spanish roots, with colorful designs and prints, while mixing in feminine and romantic vibes.

These velvet pumps are a perfect example of the playful, yet ladylike aesthetic.  These flirty heels are covered in pink and navy velvet, with a 4″ chunky heel.  Finish off the look with a below-the-knee skirt and high-collar blouse for a polished, yet refined look.
