Shoed or Shoed not : Elle Striped Heels with Bows


Bringing back a series that I started a long time ago but never updated. It's called Shoed or Shoed Not?


In this shoe section I will be featuring shoes that I like at first glance but upon closer inspection, makes me think twice about it. Thus the Shoed or Shoed not? question. 

This pair is by Elle and all of its elements , separately are ones that I love so much. I love the stripes.  I love ankle straps. I love bows. Yet when you place all of them together, it does not look quite right. I feel like the bow looks too flat and big and awkwardly positioned on the side. If it were placed at the back, maybe it would look nicer. I think the shoe would look a lot better sans bow. It has a pretty good shape and would have looked like a classic striped shoe. And then, we come and see the heel and I'm not pleased to see it looks rather short. If they were a litter higher they would be great!



What do you guys think of this shoe? Is it a shoed or shoed not? Let me know in the comments below!

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?
