Shoe Goal - A challenge to myself

While looking at my shoe collection earlier this morning, I realized that I have quite a number pairs of shoes. A lot actually compared to most people..

I also realized that I have a lot of gorgeous shoes that I haven't worn a lot of times. I even have a couple of pairs that I have NOT worn since I bought it! :o A few posts back, I wrote about the shoperwoman challenge and said that I was too late to join. To give a rundown of the shoe challenge by the shoeperwoman, you have to wear all of your shoes within one year, those that remain unworn must be given away. This is a great way to really maximize wearing all your shoes. Sadly, I was not able to join the challenge because its too late to catch up.

Soooo, this morning I came up with my own goal. Since the shoeperwoman challenge is still like, 6 months to go before its over and I can join, I will try to devise a way to wear those shoes i've hardly worn.

This is how it goes:

I will select 4 pairs of shoes that i HARDLY wore since I…

Fall 2011 : Balenciaga

I will be doing a series of fall 2011 shoes that I like. Much like what I did with Spring/Summer 2011 shoes.

Although I know its late to be showing you the shoes, spring/summer 2012 will be coming soon so i better get this underway.

First up: Balenciaga

I loved these pairs, especially in blue:



I love how they mixed the velvet and animal skin texture.

I also like the design on these ones but i wish they were LESS pointier...








Take a look at the burgundy colored ones below...See what i mean about it being too pointy? ech...but the black and white ones above are really gorgeous though..



all pictures are from style.com.

UPDATE: Ok I just remembered, the second style of shoes i mentioned here reminds me of my H&M shoes I got over Christmas! see here in this post.

Or better yet here's a picture:

Hmmm...I wonder who did the original design before? Maybe Balenciaga are redoing designs, i dunno does anybody know? But whatever they're both great looking either way...

ASOS Bow Shoes

I am loving these bow pumps from Asos.

As I have mentioned over numerous posts throughout this blog, i really, really love shoes with bows in them.

This pair is no exception.


I love the white piping detail and the contrast of the white bow against the black.

They have it in nude as well but in my opinion, i like the black ones more.

Here is the nude version:


Which ones do you like best? I would love to hear your opinion.

I found them here.

Shoe of the Day

I wore my new Michael Antonio shoes out the other day - just out to lunch.



I normally don't post outfit pics - this will be one of the rare times that I will.

Also wanted to show my new Longchamp - I got this on sale. Unbelievable price and undelievable bag! Isnt it pretty? I love the color of the bag! And the shape and the leather too!

H by Halston

I was browsing through Bakers Shoes and I found that Halston has a lower priced line. Or is it a collaboration with Bakers? I'm not sure, but I am loving this pair:


It may look like another ordinary neutral toned strappy shoe, but check out how it looks like when worn:



Dont they look fabulous when? They are worn by the model in the middle by the way. I love how theres a strap that crosses over the foot but leaves one side of the foot bare. Its kind of Jill sander-ish dont you think? Other than that, I love the satin and that detail in the heels.

You can find them here.

Beach Shoes - What to Pack

Just squeezing in a quick post before I have to get up at 430 AM. I'm leaving for a little weekend get away - just to a little town not far from my own where my friends and i will be soaking up the sun at the beach during the day and partying up at night.

So what shoes do I pack? My friend who is from that town says not to get over dressed since its very chill, dress code will be like shorts or flip-flops asides from swimwear. So that means no wearing heels the whole weekend. I'm really NOT a flip-flop girl, the only time i ever wear slippers is in my bedroom or out on the beach. I decided resort chic will be the theme for the weekend so I have narrowed down my options to these two flat sandals:

Red Open flats from Zara, with a cork sole that tie around the ankle:



The other ones are random gold sandals I found in my room. These arent even mine, theyre actually my sister's. But hey, she's not here so I can use them right?





They'r really pretty right? I hope my sister fo…

NEW SHOES - Seychelles

So, as mentioned in a previous post, I was at my country's capital on the weekend and I got myself a couple of pretties. here is another one:






This is a brand called Seychelles. They carry these at a local department store. Here is their website if you're curious.

These are sooo pretty when they are worn. I don't think my sucky pictures did them justice. Also I feel like I should have been wearing red toe polish when I took this picture - would have gone better with the shoe.

Its not that clear in the photos but the black part of the shoe actually has a snakeskin-like texture. That plus the gold piping detail plus the stones all complement very nicely. Oh and did I mention they were on sale???

Love it!!!

RIVER ISLAND

I wish I lived in the UK. Well actually, one of the reasons for that statement is River Island.

This is a UK brand that I heard about from one of my favorite shoe blogs, shoeperwoman. She always has some river Island Shoes posted in her blog entries. Anyways, I decided to check out their site and almost wish that I hadn't. Imagine, loads of gorgeous shoes to choose from at an affordable price no less! Too bad I can't shop there :o

Anyway here are some of my picks, for those of you who CAN shop there or those who dont mind paying an exorbitant shipping price/tax if you dont live in the UK, Enjoy:

I super love the colours of these:



Yet another nude, ribboned, peeptoe - ok you get the picture, i love any one of those factors in shoes and this pair is the epitome of that.


And the piece de resistance:




 Do these not look like valentinos or something? GORGEOUS!!!!

NEW SHOES - Michael Antonio

So I went to the country's capital and stocked up on some shoes. Here is one of the pairs that I bought:



These are Michael Antonio. I am soooo glad I found these! I was already contemplating on another pair of nude wedges and was all set to buy it when these came along! Good thing patience has its rewards!

i love this for the height, the texture and as what my sister said it really looks like 'high fashion shoes'

They look better in person! (ok, i am talking like shoes are human beings) But yeah, I suck at taking pics.

I found the blue version online, but couldnt find mine. Oh well, wanted to show a better picture of the shoe in the color I chose, but its ok. They're really awesome! Cant wait to wear them.

Giuseppe Zanotti Fall 2011

Gorgeous Zanottis,we have over here:



Pictures from Luisaviaroma

The details are fabulous and the color is great - would look so great with sexy red polished toes! Also, the thin double strap of the ankle is of note!

Found them here.

Edmundo Castillo Fall 2011 Shoe

This is a really sexy shoe :



Pictures from Luisaviaroma

They remind me of something Carrie Bradshaw used to wear. I've been watching Sex and The City episodes again - can't get enough of that show even if its been like what, 6 years since they wrapped up that show?

Anyway, I think they call this style d'orsay. Don't ask me why but i've noted that that is what they call shoes that has a back part and a front part and the middle of the foot is bare. Did I explain it just right? Oh well, if nobody got it, then just look at the shoe. Pretty isn't it? And so delicate. This would look great on a dress or cropped pants. This shoe can be found here.
