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…

MAC Flighty Collection up on MAC Online!

Just a headsup to everyone that MAC’s Flighty Collection is now available online here! Use code FLIGHTY for free standard shipping.

There’s been a bit of a controversy over Temptalia’s review of the collection (you can read her review¬†here) – she originally gave these a B- , and after MAC Senior Artist Romero said in an interview that these were supposed to be “long-wearing”, she dropped the grade down to a D. From her pictures, they really don’t look like they last very well at all, and if a product doesn’t do what it claims to then I get that it should be graded lower. I can’t help but wonder what MAC thinks about the downgrade after taking the time to do an interview. Christine has been nothing but completely honest as a beauty blogger, something I find refreshing when it seems like most people now just write good reviews so they’ll get free products! All this being said I’m not much of a fan of cream products myself, preferring pigments and pressed eyeshadows, so I wasn’t exactly going to run to a MAC store to pick these up anyway (the MAC Mega Metal eyeshadows though was another story!) My advice is, if you’re thinking of purchasing these please try them at a store first, and don’t just buy them online because you like the color!

Kate Spade Gold Coast Shimmer Evangeline bag

 

I don’t generally write about bags, though not for looking at them less than I do shoes! I should probably feature more bags on here, because who doesn’t like looking at bags? (Not me anyway…) This is Kate Spade’s popular Gold Coast Evangeline bag, shown above in ballerina pink. I really like this shade of pink because it instantly makes an item more delicate and feminine, and I think it works perfectly with the quilting and gold plating to make for a girlish bag. I like how this bag has its own distinctive look, unlike a lot of other quilted bags that tend to have the same look (ie, the Chanel Classic look…), due to the vertical quilting pattern and diamond-shaped clasp that have been used here.

This is pebbled cowhide, with 14k light gold plated hardware and a flap and turnlock closure. You can purchase it here for $395. Also available in cream and cashew.

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.
