Nina Bejeweled Sandal

Browsing randomly at DSW shoes brought me to this pair:

I love everything about from the blue satin combined with the gold heel, to the meshed area and then topped off with a bejeweled thingy. Oh and did I mention that I LOVE t-strap shoes???

Here is a close-up of the front part of the shoe, Love the mesh and those stones together!

They also have it in a sort of berry and burgundy color, its pretty gorgeous too!

They have it in black and silver as well but for me, those two colors don't make as much of an impact as the blue and the burgundy. The black and silver versions look really ordinary... See what a difference color can make?

The heel is not super high, it's 4inches but for this type of sandals, i guess it's okay to not make it toooo high. They're pretty enough already!

A Pretty Pair to Brighten Up Your day

Today's pair is a pair of Loubs.


picture from this link


This pair is from their Spring 2012 collection. They look like they have the shape of the Pigalle Pumps, but instead have tis lovely gold texture all over and a gorgeous detailed bow. See the bow up close:

They're no ordinary bows I tell you! I really love the shape of this shoe,I love that the front part of the shoe is kind of receded toward the toes and then topped off with this pretty bow - I think it would really make the feet look so dainty!

Siiiiigh. This shoe is soooo pretty. definitely on my must lust list! (I say must lust because I can't afford it! Definitely a must buy if you have the moola!)

I found these here.

Sergio Rossi Python and Swarovski

Swarovski and python...does it sound like a delectable combination or what?

I personally don't like Swarovski jewelry (i prefer the real precious gems!) or Swarovski anything (like on bags and etc.) because I find it TOO flashy, but check out the Swarovski beads in these shoes:

Not bad eh? They look great with the python!

Fall 2012 Shoes...Part 2

So here's Part two of Fall 2012 shoes...whew we still have a long way to go but I cant deny that I'm enjoying all this shoe watching! I hope you guys are too! Here are some noteworthy shoes:

Oscar de la Renta

I really love those satin shoes with bows. I'm a sucker for bows and I love how its placed to the side with these strappy things. Also the velvet boots are a fresh departure from the usual fall winter boots we normally see.

Peter Som

Ralph Lauren

The first few shoes (actually the first few outfits!) of this collection, I totally was not liking but then towards the middle of the gallery, we started seeing  some real beauties! The shoes that I love from this collection are the ones peeking above - I wish they had more close ups!


Rodarte

These shoes are really unique. The shape is different and I like the details. The third shoe in the first picture is my face! They have killer boots too!


Sophie Theallet

photo from vogue.com

I've actually never hear of this brand but I find their shoes noteworthy - love the delicate pointy mary janes and their version of color blocked high heeled oxfords!


Suno

photo from vogue.com

This is another brand I'm not familiar with but I kind of like the floral bootie at the right side of the picture. They're not too floral-ish and I love the lilac laces!


Thakoon


Love the boots here and love the prints of the middle shoe!


Theyskens Theory

photo from vogue.com

These shoes are kind of plain but I kinda like the fact that the heel is sort of a rose colored gold. Brings a little ooomph to the basic black boot/pump. Plus, I love the height of those pumps!


Tory Burch

photo from vogue.com

Tory Burch did a version of the spectator two toned shoes. I like the color combinaions that she did!

So have you guys noticed that there are a lot of pointy shoes this season??? Even in Part 1 of my post we saw a lot of those!! I cant wait to see the shoes of Miumiu, Prada, Valentino Lanvin, YSL and so many more!!! Can you believe these shoes are only from New York Fashion Week? So many more to look forward to!

Hope you guys liked this post and I lwould love to hear what your favorites are!

A Pretty Pair to Brighten Up Your Day

Interrupting all the fall 2012 shoe posts to bring to you the regular Monday Post.

Today's Pair is this Rene Caovilla stunner:




They remind  me of all those intricate Indian bangles and accessories I've showed in this blog (here and here). Such a pretty piece! But then again, Rene Caovilla's shoes are never anything less than gorgeous ! Showstoppers!

Fall 2012 Shoes...Part 1

As always, I will be doing a series of notable shoes and shoes that I love for this fall 2012 season.

The first few brands/designers that I looked up on for this season did not have a lot of nice shoes (in my opinion!) I will be showing you guys in this post (and more posts to come) the shoes that I find noteworthy. There are some that I really love, which I will mention and some which I think that a lot will like also. Be prepared to get splashed with shoes, a loooots of them, in this post. (and take note this is only part 1 of fall 2012 shoes! :o)

BCBG

photos from vouge.com

I love that the heel is a different color from the rest of the shoe, sort of a rose gold color. Nothing suuuuper stellar about these shoes but I still think its worth mentioning.



Creatures of the Wind

photos from vouge.com

I've actually never heard of this label but I feel like their shoes are pretty unique (honestly would not wear these but they are pretty interesting and I think some people would like them!). The are like a hybrid of loafers and pointy shoes with straps.



DKNY


photos from vouge.com

Donna Karana and DKNY shoes have two things in common - the ankle strap shoe. DKNY just had chunkier versions.



Donna Karan

Said ankle straps are above, I actually like these better. I love the two tone colors and two tone textures. I absolutely love those animal print booties too! And I'm glad that the cap toe shoe style is still here. I can't get enough of that trend and am glad to see a lot of designers doing so many variations of colors and textures.



J.Mendel

Never really thought of J.Mendel to have noteworthy shoes but these are definitely great! I read somewhere that Manolo Blahnik designed the shoes for the show, no wonder! I'm also glad to see more ankle straps!



L'Wren Scott

Another designer where I didn't expect to find nice shoes. I'm not sure whether they commissioned a shoe designer to do their shoes? Either way I am loving these L'Wren Scott shoes! love the colors and the designs!


Marchesa

Sigh. Marchesa. Season after season they always have the most gorgeous dresses and gowns! This season, I took note of the shoes too! They are sooo pretty and whimsical don't you think? I'm not even sure if they even go commercial for their shoes but either way they are fun to look at right???



Narciso Rodriguez

Last season also saw some nice shoes from Narciso and I am loving these season's boots! Such great textures and colors! Diego Dolcini actually designed the shoes for the show. Loves!



Ohne Titel

photos from vouge.com

This is another label that I'm totally not familiar with but I like the pumps from this collection!!! Nice and unique shape.

So what do you guys think so far of the fall season's shoes? Any favorites?

Stay tuned for the next batch!

Manolo Blahnik Color Block

This is one of my favorite color block shoes that I've stumbled across.



photo from here



photo from here



Ok I know color blocking means big blocks of colour put together and for this shoe the blue part is kinda mixed with other colors (i dunno do you call it a camouflage?) but I still think that this is one of the prettiest color combinations we've seen around for a while! I love the strappiness of it all and the texture. These are Manolo Blahniks.

Find them here.

A Pretty Pair to brighten Up Your Day

Today's pair will be flats. But not a closed toe pair flats! How does a bejewelled thong sound to you guys?

I'm actually not a huge fan of flat sandals. I feel like flat sandals look really good on super skinny legs and I really don't feel like they flatter me all that much because my legs are not that long and skinny. But there are a few sandals out there that I think can look good on me and one of them is the thong variety. What more this pair that has a pretty jeweled piece to top it off? This sandal will look awesome on anyone!

Find them here.
