Weird Shoe Wednesday...United Nude

Does anybody remember the last few scenes of the cartoon Sleeping Beauty by Disney? Remember that scene when Prince Philip was battling the thorny forest that Maleficent created to render the pathway to the palace impossible? This shoe totally reminds me of that thorny forest! Which is perfect because this shoe, designed by Iris van Herpen (for United Nude) was inspired by the forces of nature and of a dramatic Banyan tree. The details of this sculptural shoe are beyond amazing, I can only imagine all the work and creativity that went into creating this shoe art.

Casadei Two-tone Blade Heels

It seems Casadei's signature Blade Heel have graduated to a wider and flatter look, though from the side they still look likethe  pin thin needle-like heel that they have made so famous. This evolution will probably make it easier to walk on as the base is bigger. Or not. I wish I could try them on myself! Heels aside, I am loving the brown and black together, with the brown part having some sort of texture. Looks great with the suede material of the black. Other than all of these factors, I also love the ankle strap. (one of my favorite factors in a shoe!)

Unusual Shoes...Balmain

Don't these Balmain shoes remind you of fish scales? Or a mermaid's tail? That's precisely why I placed it under the unusual shoes section. However, I did not put it under the Weird Shoe Wednesday section because I feel like this pair is still completely wearable and well, they ARE Balmain after all. Fish scales are a pretty interesting texture don't you think?



What do you guys think of these shoes? Are fish scales a cool alternative texture?

A Pretty Pair to Brighten Up Your Day...Rene Caovilla

I think half of the shoes featured in "A Pretty Pair to Brighten Up Your Day" Section is probably by Rene Caovilla. Can't blame anyone, Rene Caovilla makes the most gorgeous and exquisite shoes. This particular pair is so dainty and princess looking! They are made out of satin and swarovski. If I could afford these then I wouldn't even limit myself to wear them just on special occasions. Shoes like these are meant to be seen and shown off to the world! Wear these with jeans if you must!



What do you guys think? Would you wear these on ordinary occassions?
I hope that looking at this par brightened up your Monday Blues!

New Shoes...R

If you follow me on instagram, you'll see that I posted these shoes as my "shoes of the night" last night. (yes I just recently got instagram, follow me, my username is celynps). Anyhoo, I got this gorgeous pair about a month ago and almost forgot to post about (and wear them!) here in the blog.


These are by "R" shoes. They are so gorgeous and they are such a statement shoe. I wasn't even sure what I could wear it with and I held off wearing them for more than a month. I then realized that I have to bring them out at some point because they're just too pretty to be kept hidden! These shoes kind of remind me of glitterry Indian bangles, they're so sparkly and glitzy in real life! Plus I just love the green color.







What do you guys think? What have you all been wearing on your feet lately?

Dsquared Sandals

I am so glad that more and more designers are doing the delicate/minimal sandals. Though I wouldn't completely write off platforms  (they still really make super high shoes more comfortable), I would't say no to a sexy pair of minimal stiletto sandals like this one from Dsquared.



The embellishments and beads hanging make the shoes look like they have it's own chandelier. Even if the shoe is a boring black, it is anything but.

I love Sale Season! Zara and Stradivarius

Scored these two awesome pairs at the end of season sales!



I'm madly in love with Zara shoes. The styles are always pretty and on trend, the quality is good for a high street brand and they're always well-made. (well, at least the ones that I have ever bought so far!). I love them even more when they go on sale! I first saw the black versions of these but decided this color was so pretty and unique, I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to own a pair!

I've been wanting to buy these white ones from Stradivarius since the first time I saw them at full price. Good thing I waited because they were marked down to more that 50 percent off! Love the silver detail at the back part and the little silver border at the corner of the pointed front.

What did you guys buy from the end of season sales?

Unusual Shoes...Sophia Webster

Sophia Webster makes the most quirky and interesting shoes! I was inspired to post this particular pair  because i took an art class the other day for fun and these shoes look like a paint splattered art palette. The colors all look so pretty and I love the peep toe and the strap at the back of the shoe. Plus there's a little pink flower dangling from the straps. How much cuter can these shoes be?

A Pretty Pair to Brighten Up Your Day...Christian Louboutin

Happy Monday shoe lovers! It's that day of the week again when you hit the snooze button twenty times and moan about having to wake up for work after that great weekend. How about a little pick me up with these pretty Louboutins?

I think you all know how just how obsessed I am with bows. Don't you think that Bows + Christian Louboutin sound like the perfect formula for a beautiful shoe? This shoe is what I call a delicate sandal (the more general terms out there are minimal and barely there sandals). The gorgeous blue-green color, slingback and stiletto heel  round up the over all look of the shoe rather nicely.

Wishing you all a shoe-filled Monday!

Alejandro Ingelmo Flavia Shoes

I think Alejandro Ingelmo is slowly starting to become one of my favorite shoe designers. They have such gorgeous designs and shoes are always perfectly structured and have such clean designs. (Should make them my next Designer Shoelight feature!) They have beautifully made shoes and I feel like they don't get enough credit!


The pair I'm featuring in this post is the Flavia. Is has minimal design but several elements add interesting detail to the shoe. The strap down the middle of the shoe, the dipped uppers and the colors of each pair are all gorgeous. I couldn't decide which one was the nicest!




What do you guys think? Aren't they the most gorgeous pair you've seen in awhile? They are on sale too! Find them HERE or click on the photo's captions to find them!
Wishing you all a shoe filled day!

Pierre Hardy Multicolored Sandals

I am totally loving the colors of these Pierre Hardy Sandals. The style and texture is great. It's sort of like a caged sandal but a fancy cage with all the curved and crisscrossing lines.  The color combination is a hit too, I'm glad that color blocking in shoes are still very much in full swing.
