The Best Affordable Shoe Brand of 2015 : Asos

And my favorite affordable shoe brand of the year has definitely got to be Asos! I featured so many pairs in my Sunday Shoe Steals section and one or two individually. They just kept coming out with all these hits! Embellished heels, low block heels, flat thong sandals - these were the recurring themes of their collections and they all turned out so pretty! I am even rethinking my stance on the in-between heel height : the not so flat, not so high stiletto heel height! Asos came out with so many low block heel gorgeousness, that I am starting to get obsessed with the style. Here are some of the pairs I have featured throughout the year and also a few more pretties from their site. What do you think of all the shoes that Asos produced this year?

The Most Gorgeous Shoes of 2015

A few days ago, I did a year in review with the cutest affordable shoes. Now it's a round-up of my favorites and the dreamiest pairs that I have posted and fantasized  about all year. From rose embellished heels, to gorgeous shades of purple stilettos and crystal balls on a bootie - here are the most gorgeous pairs of 2015:

Dolce and Gabbana Rose Heels - I think if you were to make me pick just one shoe from this entire list to wear, I would definitely pick this. This pair is sooo pretty and unique!

12 Pairs of Cute Flats for NYE

New Year's Eve is coming and that can only mean one thing - all night partying! OK I know not EVERYONE parties on New Year's eve but definitely there will be some ceclebrating and it can't hurt to look cute and wear some fabulous shoes. For as long as I can remember,  I always end up wearing my highest heels - simply because it IS NYE and I want to look my best. The problem is though, I stay out all night and morning with them! And it usually takes like a week for my poor feet to recover from the consequences of standing in them for 8+ hours.

Tory Burch Chunky Heel Sandals

I have't really found a Tory Burch shoe that I liked but this pair is something that I am being very partial to! It has a chunky heel that features these cute embellishments and a velvet encased peep toe and ankle straps. This pair would look great with so many outfits, both casual and going out at night looks. What do you guys think?

Sunday Shoe Steals : The Cutest Affordable Pairs of 2015

As the year comes to end,  my "reflection" activity for that would be to go over all my shoe posts or the year and check out my favorite styles of the year. This 2015, I started Sunday Shoe Steals, wherein I feature  cute pairs that are really affordable too! Here is a round up of the ones I found the cutest for this year. 

Valentino Garavani Wing Sandals

Valentino Garavani Sandals feature a little winged detail in the front part of the shoe that has some gold tone studs. The pair has some ankle straps which I really love and though it's in a basic black color, the shoe itself is really interesting and unique because of the details in the front. What do you guys think of this pair? 

Collections : Star Wars Collection at Irregular Choice

I'm a bad shoe blogger. I only found out about the Star Wars collection from Irregular Choice just these past few days. Not that I am a huge fan of Star Wars (gasp. I know this will elicit a lot of outrage from fanatics ) but when a huge franchise like that is made into shoes - I know it is my absolutely responsibility as a shoe enthusiast to write about it! It's also pretty cool to see in shoes isn't it? Even to non-fans, the shoes produced from this collection are news worthy because they are so totally unique and weird. 

Wishlist : My Chrismas Shoelist

It's Christmas Day already tomorrow! What's on everybody's wishlist this year??? Mine is always the same every year : lots and lots of shoes!!! Though I can't afford most (well ALL of these pairs), there's a reason it's called a WISH list! No harm in dreaming right? Which  ones below are your favorites?

Fun Shoes : Edgardo Osorio for Salvatorre Ferragamo

What do you get when one of the hottest shoe designers around (Edgardo Osorio of Aquazzura) collaborates with a timeless classic brand like Salvatorre Ferragamo? Why, a polka dotted stiletto heel of course! Ferragamo is known or classic pieces like their timeless be ribboned flats, and sometimes also known for a brand that's worn by your grandma so it's pretty refreshing to see shoes like these pop up in their collections from time to time. Egardo Osorio has made the sexiest stilettos for Aquazzura and it's great to see his talent bestowed upon long time fashion houses like Ferragamo. What do you guys think of this collaboration?

Dsquared2 Lace-Up Heels

Dsquared2 has some of the coolest shoes around. This pair looks messy and looks like such an explosion of everything but I absolutely love it. It has this sort of tribal look around it, with the patterns in the back. It has orange lace-ups which I think complements rather nicely with the rest of the shoe, an ofcourse a super high stiletto heel which I adore. What do you guys think?

I am so fond of barely there stiletto sandals - especially ones with interesting elements like these Schutz heels.

The straps in the front and ankle part are thin and nice and would look so pretty on the feet. They make for an interesting design, don't you think?

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!
