An Outfit for these Shoes from JosephM

I have not written a new post for this section I call: "An Outfit for These Shoes" in awhile. Well folks, here is one now and I'm hoping to regularly update this section!

The shoes and clothes for the whole look are all found from online store joseph M.  I found some chic things by designers like Temperley and Lola Rose. They have a lot of Temperley! If you love this brand then you should go check out this online store.

Anyways, on to my post. I've always loved the leopard print loafer shoe style. Upon searching through the shoes at Joseph M, I discovered that Melissa actually has this style in a plastic version! I was delighted so I chose this shoe to be the focus of this post.


It's in a current style plus the leopard print is really starting to become a neutral color now. This print looks so chic on shoes and accessories and is great paired with anything!



Here is the outfit I came up with:



For these shoes, I chose a casual but chic outfit. I'm assuming that most of you are experiencing the cold so i added this gorgeous white Alice by Temperley jacket. It has these cuts at the waist that is bound to flatter your figure plus it's in the most beautiful winter white color and will look fabulous with the leopard print. For under the jacket, this gray top with lace shoulders look so chic accessorized with a black agate necklace and quartz ring. Black faux trousers for a bit of shine and sleekness and to add a bit of cool to the outfit, Tom Ford Shades and a black chained bag are in order.

Here are the outfit details:

1. Alice by Temperley ladies white harp jacket
2. Alice by Temperley ladies grey odille cut out lace shoulder jumper
3. Tom Ford Cary sunglasses in black
4. Ladies Lola Rose Black Agate Esther Necklace
5. Ladies Lola Rose Lily Quartzite Casper Ring
6. Ladies Alice By Temperley black liberty trousers
7. Barbour ladies iris black handbag

All these can be found at joseph M ladieswear.

As usual, I'm wishing you guys a shoe filled day!

Two Tone Shoes...Alexander McQueen

Two tone shoes rate high among my favorite styles of shoes. Especialy if they're black and nude combinations! Like these Alexander Mcqueen two-tone leather platform sandals.



I'm loving how the heel is slight curved outward. Also my other favorite elements aside from the two tone: t straps, ankle straps and a peep toe  Love how instead of the usual close peep toe, you have these tube-like straps across the peep toe which are attached to wavy sides.

A Pretty Pair to Brighten Up Your Day...Valentino


I usually do these "A Pretty Pair to Brighten Up Your Day" posts on Monday, but outside is a cold ad rainy day from where I'm from so i figured a lot of us probably need a little pick me up.

Today's pretty shoes are these jewel encrusted Valentino Mary Jane pumps.



It says in it description that the crystals in the shoe are faceted, so i'm guessing that once you put these on, there's a chance you could be a walking disco ball...all the light and reflection will just be bouncing of your feet. Hmmm, sparkling feet will look rather pretty I would think!  I mean these are Valentinos after all so hopefully the thought of having disco ball like feet wont seem too gaudy.



They look so dainty and delicate and I love how they made the ankle strap a nude color. it balances out the shoe perfectly, than if they made the ankle strap encrusted with jewels too.

Hope this pretty pair brightened up your day!

Unusual Shoes...Charlotte Olympia Poodles


If you can't handle taking care of a real life dog or if other members of your household are against having a dog, then I guess owning these shoes are the next best thing? HAHA...




How crazy and unusual are these Charlotte Olympia Poodle Heeled Shoes?

From the front, they actually look really pretty. I love the light rose color, the buckled criscross ankle straps (there's even a pretty heart dangling from it) and the caged strappy peeptoe. 

And then you turn it around and you see an, er....your fake pet.


Don't get me wrong, I am in no way dissing these shoes but you'll have to admit, they are pretty quirky and weird. If you are into novelty shoes and have money to throw around, then this would be perfect for you. I wouldn't spend more than a thousand dollars on shoes like these though :o Yes they cost that much!

Check out the close up of the doggie, it even has a gold jewel encrusted collar! It's pretty cute actually!  I wonder how Charlotte Olympia comes up with her designs?

The Ultimate Delicate Sandal...B Brian Atwood

If you read my blog regularly, you might remember that I wrote this post about delicate sandals. Basically delicate sandals are what some bloggers dub as "minimal" meaning they have sexy stiletto heels and absolutely no platform. They are the least chunky heels and look delicate and feminine and very pretty on any feet. 

Well ladies and gentleman (if there are any guy readers), I present to you THE ultimate in delicate sandals.


Not only are they not chunky and platform-less, they are in a neutral gold color which further amps up the minimalist in the shoe. 


Again, if you read this blog a lot and have a good memory, you may have noticed that I actually already featured these B Brian Atwood pair in another color. I could not, NOT post these again, this color is just so beautiful! Don't you guys agree?

Cap Toe Shoes...Anne Klein


These shoes are beautiful, simple, chic and totally un-fussy. You can wear them to the office or even to a night out with friends. I really love the color combination, with the gold and slightly pinkish nude tones.





I'm always on the look-out out for pretty and delicate cap-toe shoes and these ones rate high on my list! They're not that high but they can be really practical for work! Pair them with cropped pants or a pencil skirt for a polished and sophisticated look

Two-tone shoes...BCBG Generation Shoes


I'm always on a look out for two-tone shoes, even more so if they have an ankle strap AND some embellishments on the back. How awesome are these spikes? Makes this shoe look like a not so innocent Mary Jane!

New Shoes...Two Vince Camutos

I'm really loving Vince Camuto shoes! I found some cute ones, heavily discounted which is really great because the normal price goes to more than a hundred singapore dollars. I am not sure how much they usually are in the US, but the discount was huge, something like 70 percent off.  How could I resist?

This first pair is a multi colored and multi textured shoe. I love the combination of the black, gray and snakeskin. I also love how the ankle straps criscross over the ankles.



At first they didn't look so high when they were on the shelf, but when you wear them they look like super tall heels! And they are pretty comfortable too. The material is soft so it doesn't pinch your feet and it has about an inch and a half of a platform in front, PLUS the heel is pretty thick too so its not hard to balance yourself and walk in them.


A surprising feature that I love about them is that they have some hidden studs in the heels!


If you're curious about the sizing: They have American sizing, and they are very consistent with it. I actually bought these a half size up because they didn't have any more stocks in my size. They still fit pretty well.

The next pair is the brown version of these other Vince Camutos I featured. 


They are exactly the same ones I featured several weeks ago (click HERE for that) except that these are in a dark brown color and the studs are like this:




They're gorgeous right? Love that they threw in some blue studs as well asides from metallic ones. For these I actually sized down a half size (again because there were no more stocks for my usual size, that's the thing about sales, they run out of sizes) but i have absolutely no problem with the fit.They don't pinch my feet and they are very comfy! In fact I am wearing them right this very minute and I have been in them for more than two hours. My only complaint is that I bought these about a month after I bought the lighter nude ones and the prices went down even more from what I paid two months ago! Oh well. Can't win 'em all I guess.

Love both my new shoes! What new pairs have you guys gotten recently?

Wishing everyone a shoe filled day!

Obsession with Bows...Enzo Angiolini



First off, it's not just the bows that I'm obsessed with in this pair. It's the color too. How gorgeous is this? I love the satin texture mixed with the glitter. 



 How cute is the bow in the back? Well when  you think about it, it's not exactly the usual traditional bow, it's more like two rings hooked on a line. But two very pretty rings!
