For this round of Fill in the Blank, I wanted to find a shoe that was interesting, conversation-worthy and a bit out of the ordinary. Suffice it to say that these Emanuel Ungaro Wrap Around Ruffled Leather Sandals fit that description more accurately than I could have hoped.

Sometimes a shoe that looks amazing on the runway seems like it could never work well in your footwear collection, and more importantly, that you might never actually be tempted to wear them. Read More…

Chunky. And also a little too clunky. Yes, I believe that’s the only correct way to describe these Sergio Rossi Platform Sandals – bit too chunky and very, very clunky. Normally I would wait until the end of a post like this to voice my answer, but I just couldn’t hold it in. When I saw these sandals on The Corner, I was surprised to read that we were designed by Sergio Rossi; usually Rossi’s shoes are exceptionally chic. Read More…

I’ll start the game: When I first saw these Manolo Blahnik Lace Sandals, I shrieked. The Manolo Blahnik Plusanda Lace Double-Band Sandals are the epitome of a posh shoe, but of course, that’s to be expected from such an iconic designer, and I’m certainly not complaining.

One of the reasons I instantly fell in love with this pump was because of Blahnik’s use of lace. Read More…

I may not be a country girl, but I can always find a way to wear a great pair of cowboy boots. When I first laid eyes on these Ivy Kirzhner Caballero High Heel Harness Booties, I will admit I didn’t like them. However, sometimes even with things you don’t like, you are compelled to look closer. When I did, well, my initial feeling was still the same…for the most part. Read More…

Tacky? Weird? Unmatchable? The list of negative adjectives can keep going but I will stop there. I consider myself a daring person, fashion-wise, but there are times when I stop and wonder, how in the world is anyone suppose to wear this? Well, this moment occurred to me after looking at the Sophia Webster Jessica Printed Mixed-Media d’Orsay Pump. I admire many of Webster’s designs, but I don’t know if I can wrap my head around this one. Read More…

“Tall?” “Literal?” There are a lot of potential ways to end our Fill in the Blank sentence when it comes to the Kate Spade Le Taxi Slingback Pumps, and none of them are particularly flattering. Read More…

The Isa Tapia Ivana Rabbit Fur Pumps may not be the shoes we want, but they might be the shoes we deserve. At least in a theoretical sense. We’ve only ourselves to blame for what’s transpiring north of this paragraph. Ourselves and Phoebe Philo. (Rejoice, because this might be the only time most of us are ever in the same group with Philo for any reason.)

Although her brand is relatively new, Isa Tapia has quickly established herself as a designer with a very particular aesthetic – bright, bold, trendy. Read More…

I took one look at the Simone Rocha Patent Leather Brogues and all I could think was, “SUSIE BUBBLE. IMMEDIATELY.”

If you’re not familiar with Susie Bubble, her real name is Susanna Lau and she’s the British proprietor of a personal style blog called Style Bubble. I’m normally a bit of a hater when it comes to personal style bloggers, but Susie is one of the few exceptions in my morning reading roundup. Read More…
