Shoeper Shoe Challenge Week 34

 I am so behind in uploading my shoeper shoe challenge saves. If you're an avid reader of this blog, you'll know that I've joined Shoeperwoman's Shoe Challenge, where I have to "save" or wear all of my shoes in one year. It's a great way to keep track of all my shoes and also, a way for me or anyone to really be able to get good use out of ALL shoes.

For this post, I have three saves.


Save #20 : Nude flats from Reva. These are super comfy and I think I've worn them a number of times already before I remembered to document it.



Shoe Save#21: The Cascabel d'orsay pumps form my shoe line, Sala Chaussures. Loving the combination of nude and snakeskin - perfect for wearing with shorts or dresses - especially in this intense summer heat! I wore this outfit out to Sunday lunch with my mom's old blouse!

Shoe Save #22 : Another pair from Sala Chaussures. This style hasn't been released yet so I won't show a close-up of it yet! Let this photo be just a sneak peak! Again, I am wearing it with shorts (it's in the middle of summer here and it's really just too hot wear anything else!) and a colored t-shirt from Uniqlo.

Alexandre Birman Suede and Python Pump

{photo}

Every closet needs a good and classic looking pump. Even more so than those qualities mentioned, a stylish yet timeless one like these Alexndre Birman Two-tone, two-textured pair. Alexandre Birman has quickly become one of my favorite shoe designers because his work always looks so clean and sleek. He always also manages to make his pairs look classic and timeless without sacrificing style and design. This is exactly what this shoe is all about. You have the good 'ol pump but it's elevated to have this gorgeous two-tone/texture style. The slight "v" of the vamp also makes this pair ultra sexy.

Giuseppe Zanotti Dragon Shoes

{photo}


Animal embellishments on shoes is such a favorite of mine. Having the dragon on the t-strap of these Giuseppe Zanotti Flat sandals is genius. It elevated a pair of  boring, black open toed flats to something more luxurious looking. This dragon has a combination of white and red stones, this pair would have been perfect for the year of the dragon last year!

Weird Shoe Wednesday...Iris Van Herpen x United Nude

{photo}

Yes this is  a shoe! And it's actually  available for pre-order and purchase and you got it, for wearing. This is the fruit of a collaboration between Iris Van Herpen and United Nude. United nude, is already known for pretty unusual shoes and it's collaborations with designers like Iris Van Herpen takes the "unusualness" of theirs designs to another level.

{photo}
This is called the Biopiracy boot.  To explain further on what exactly  this Biopiracy boot is all about : "The Biopiracy collection by Iris Van Herpen emerged from astonishment of companies’ patented human genes. As part of the show, Lawrence Malstaf created art installations, which developed the impression of models being weightless and breathless. In their half-sleep they seem bio-hacked, to slow down time and energy. Iris van Herpen and Lawrence Malstaf experiment with living objects, kinetic architecture and physical interaction through fashion in installation art." ---> from the United Nude Site

It's certainly a weird enough shoe and I'm sure most of you can't imagine how it looks when it's worn. Click HERE to see how they look when they're on the feet!

They are pretty cool come to think about it and though I wouldn't order one for myself, I'm still curious as to how they are when worn - whether they're comfortable (probably not) or if the front part is stiff or flexible. And how you get into in, in the first place? If you notice there is a hole on top where the whole leg is supposed to go through. I'm also curious to see how anyone who buys it would style it!

What do you guys think? Would you wear these creations?

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

I am madly in love with these Acquazzura heels! Heels with bows are always a winner in my shoe book, this beautiful and sleek pair is definitely a front runner! Today is a Monday and the first day back to work from a long Easter weekend, so I hope that this pretty pair will brighten up every body's Monday Blues a little bit!

{photo}

There is a Fuchsia and blue version and they are both in satin material. Satin for me is just the perfect texture or material for most bows. The ribbon in the Fuchsia version are a different shade of pink as the rest of the shoe and I think it gives the pair an extra punch gorgeous!

What do you think? Do you like the blue of the pink ones more? Wishing you all a beautiful week ahead!

Jimmy Choo Snake Ankle Wrap Sandal


{photo}

There's just something so gorgeous about straps and ribbons and what not wrapping around the ankles. It's one of my favorite factors in any shoe so it's no wonder why I like this particular pair of Jimmy Choo sandals so much. It has a snakeskin and leather upper and a four inch heel. It has the prettiest "flame" (or so it is called in the description) color!

Christian Louboutin Bollywood Boule PVC

{photo}
I've always written about how I'm not really into shoes that has PVC. I prefer to have it in mesh, if ever the design of the shoe is meant to have a "see-through" effect. Though I don't like PVC, I just had to post this particular pair from Louboutin. 

{photo}

These are the Bollywood Boule pumps. I guess it's called that due to the sparkly kinda Indian style design on the point of the shoe. Even with sparkly elements, the overall look of the shoe still looks so sleek and chic. And look at that heel!!! Oh the heel!!! So high and gorgeous and everything!

Weird Shoe Wednesday...Pleaser Women's Ankle Boot

{photo}

Happy Weird Shoe Wednesday Shoe Coveteurs! Today's "weird" shoes are these. Er, yes these are actually shoes and are being sold online! They are lace-up patent heeled boots. At first you may think that it's just a regular 'ol boot but when you turn it around 360 degrees, these are anything but ordinary.

{photo}

{photo}

They are made to look like a ballerina's toe shoes. I honestly cannot imagine how one could even begin to walk on these! Unless you're a professional prima donna maybe? And I wonder how long anyone can stand in these shoes? Gaaad, i'm just imagining standing on my tippy toes for an hour! I like my heels high but not like this kind of situation!
