Miu Miu Jeweled Patent and Velvet Sneakers

 

Er. I really have nothing else to say besides that I need these shoes, and I need them as soon as these land in my nearest Miu Miu store and I get to run my fingers over that gorgeous aqua velvet, and ogle all the shiny stuff over the toe cap. I love almost every jeweled shoe Miu Miu makes (um, not the Oxfords), and I just bought a pair of their jeweled heel ballerinas in May. First Louboutin, now Miu Miu are out to tempt me with their designer sneakers! I suppose some people will look at these and see a very impractical shoe – velvet and jewels on a sneaker, why should a sneaker cost $585USD, how are you going to do anything in them without getting them dirty, yada yada. That doesn’t faze me in the slightest though, since I’m not even the least bit sporty! Wearing these probably counts as being sporty enough for the year for me, actually. So these will just make people think that maybe I run sometimes, when actually I won’t be doing anything of the sort (no trekking through mud or whatever it is outdoorsy types do) at all, and my shoes will stay pristine. Perfect! Now only to wait til 15th October when the pre-orders ship…

 

Here’s a picture of the top of the shoe, so you can ogle the jewels too:

 

Ooh, shiny

 

If you want to pre-order your own pair, you can do so at Sak’s Fifth Avenue!

Hello Kitty Crocs

Oh no. The instant I saw these shoes I felt my heart sink, because I absolutely love Hello Kitty, but… but… but… these are Crocs, and I absolutely hate Crocs, and it feels like my love for Hello Kitty is being tested against my hate for Crocs, to see which I love/hate more. I mean, these don’t even look that much like Crocs! Sure they’re rubbery, but rubber flats have been SO in fashion lately! And they’re black, and black matches everything, and that pink rubber bow is actually pretty cute. But wait-

The back looks a bit… childish, doesn’t it? A wee bit twee? But if I didn’t like childish things I wouldn’t be looking at Hello Kitty shoes now would I? Look look, these have Hello Kitty’s face on them!!

And see, they look quite alright with black tights now don’t they? In a, they don’t look that bad from a distance kind of way? I’m SO confused right now. If I buy these, is that proof of my love for all things Hello Kitty? Or am I just buying the most well-disguised Crocs in the universe? Either way I think I lose. If you want a pair though, these are currently £14.99 at  50% off and you can buy them from Schuh.

Brian Atwood Maniac Pearl-pink Silk Satin Platform Pumps

 

I seem to say this about almost every shoe I feature here, but aren’t these just beautiful? Such a classic shape and color really don’t need me to describe them further, but if I did, I’d say something about how these would be the perfect classic bridal shoes, but still versatile and elegant enough for any other dressy evening event. Add something about that faint blushpetal pink and stunning sheen of the silk-satin, and curved almond toe platform pump shape that only Designers tend to do to perfection and voila, post done! Here, have another picture:

 

What was that I said about the perfect curve of this vamp again? Oh yeah, designer shoes cost $480 and you can pick this pair up from Net-A-Porter here.

Christian Louboutin Brandaplato Satin Mesh Heels

These shoes are my latest obsession. I’ve been staring at them for the last two days wishing my feet were a US Size 9.5 or 10, and that I had a spare $1,125 just lying around. Here, see another picture:

Aren’t they gorgeous? If you’d mentioned “satin mesh peeptoes” to me I never would have imagined the perfection that is this shoe, but of course that’s why Mr. Louboutin is the Master and I just show you his shoes! I love how the mesh really ends up looking like delicate lace and not say, fishnet stockings, and the swirl straps give off a very elegant feel. Here’s a side-view:

I love the cursive ‘L’ you can make out along the side, and is it just me or do the straps almost look like wings here? I imagine if Hermes were female and stylish he would have worn these to deliver his messages to the Greeks, instead of the winged sandals he wore!

Now take a look at the black version:


No less droolworthy, mm?

And from the back:

So vampy! I’m quite glad they’re both sold out in my size, lest I be tempted to buy them. If they’re still available in your size though, you can buy these from Barney’s here for the Gold and here for the black. I’ll just have to be content with making their picture my desktop wallpaper…

Kate Spade Gal heels

These cream and black Kate Spade heels are quite cute, aren’t they? I love stripes, and black and cream is one of my go-to colour combinations. The striped heel reminds me of zebras (in a good, cute way!) and the grosgrain ribbon is simple and cute. While the combination of cream and black usually makes for a more formal shoe,  the open toe and slingback style of this one keeps it casual. With its 4″ heel though, you probably won’t be wearing this for a walk in the park, but it’d be perfect for say, a lawn party in the Spring! Anyone want to invite me to theirs?

These are $298 and you can get them from the Kate Spade store online here.

Alexander Wang Frida Leather boots

Who remembers these Alexander Wang Frida boots from 2010? The sumptuous black leather and calf hair, along with the sculpted 5″ heel and 1″ concealed platform definitely give these a “bad girl” vibe. Well, if you wanted them last year and didn’t manage to snag a pair, theoutnet is currently selling them for 50% off! Originally $575, these are now $287.50. While that’s still not quite a bargain price, they’re a decent bargain for designer shoes! Click here to buy.

Forever 21 Double Platform Glitter Stilettos

These are Forever 21’s new Double Platform Glitter Stilettos, and don’t they look very… architectural? I don’t mean that in a bad way (I’m an architecture student, so quite the opposite!) They’re definitely interesting, what with the double bow, double platform, and slight Kirkwood thing going on with the heel! Having stared at this shoe for the last few days, I’ve decided that I quite like the design, but I’d think twice about buying it if it’s Forever21 doing the manufacturing! Let’s be honest here, F21 is known for being a cheap, commercial brand, and some of their shoes are pretty hit or miss in terms of quality and workmanship. I’d feel safer buying a shoe like this from a higher-end brand, just for the extra peace of mind that the platform won’t fall apart on me! Still, props to Forever 21 for being less ‘commercial’ with this shoe and going instead for a more edgy, unique look that might not necessarily have mass appeal. They’re very ambitious, and I like them!

Here’s a closeup of the platform:

I just looked at the platform and thought, Oreo’s! but that might just be me. Seriously though, doesn’t that sandwich effect remind you of Oreo’s? No? Okay, moving on… Where did I leave those Oreo’s?

These are $32.80 and you can purchase them here.
