Collections : 5 Inch and Up x River Island

5 Inch and Up x River Island

There have been a lot of collaborations between big-name high street brands and bloggers. One of these collaborations is between blogger Sandra Hagelstar of  5 inch and Up and High Street Giant River Island. They collaborated on a shoe collection. Of course with a blog called 5 inch and up, it couldn't be a more perfect match. 

The collection features mostly black and nudes - all the usual colors for Fall. It also showed us these cut-outs that are both found in the boots and the pumps. I think this might be a signature design for her. I really like the cut-outs as it adds interesting detail to the shoes.

My favorite from the collection are the pumps, I love the deep "V" vamp and of course the cut-outs over it. Those elements are what makes it such a sleek and sexy shoe!

Sexy Stiletto Saturdays : Oscar Tiye

The two circles found at the back of this shoe really reminds me of Mickey Mouse. Don't you guys think so? It's pretty cute actually! Other than that, this pair is actually a really very sexy pair of stilettos. It has a gorgeous black satin texture, dainty straps and a beautiful high stiletto heel. What do you guys think?

Olgana Paris Dahlia Suede Ankle Wrap Sandal

I've mentioned several times here just how much I am loving the low block heel. I've featured the style several times and even my own shoe line Sala Chaussures have made several versions of it. I am very much partial to the more feminine and dainty versions and I love that other designers are coming out with so many pretty styles like these ones from Olgana Paris. I love the gorgeous blush color plus the flower embellishment adds just the right element of femininity and the dangling leaves on the ankle straps finishes up the whole shoe perfectly. What do you guys think of this Pair?

Sergio Rossi Velvet Beaded Heel D'orsay Pump

Opulent and decadent are two words I would use to describe this pair from Sergio Rossi. It features gorgeous deep purple velvet uppers with the back part and block heel covered almost entirely in beads. Even with all those factors, I still think this pair is extremely wearable, I would totally wear these with jeans and a white shirt!! It  is such a gorgeous pair! What do you guys think?
