Gucci Sandal Hala Crystal High Heel

I’ll admit: sometimes I forget about Gucci. They don’t get the spotlight they deserve, but I’m here to fix that, at least for today. I was browsing through Bloomingdale’s when I came across the Gucci Crystal Cage Sandals, and alas, the obsession begins!

While the brand’s fall runway shoes were full of ’60s inspired go-go boots, you won’t find any platforms in this selection of evening shoes and booties. Read More...

Rag and Bone Feature Image

Rag & Bone boots are a celebrity favorite, but are they worth the hype? That’s a question I ask myself every fall. Not that I’m influenced by celebrities, but after looking at women like Jennifer Garner and Katie Holmes wearing them, sometimes I can’t help but feel slightly swayed.

I love the off-duty aesthetic of Rag & Bone boots. They’re well-crafted, but when it comes down to hitting the “buy” button, I always hesitate because of the price. Read More...

Emily Ratajkowski Jimmy Choo Lance Sandals

Here’s model Emily Ratajkowski, striding in to a business meeting of some sort in NYC in a gorgeous grey pair of Jimmy Choo Lance Sandals. We see these on the red carpet all the time, but it’s unusual to spot a celeb donning them in broad daylight. You can find a very similar pair in a metallic silver leather finish for $850 at Net-a-Porter. Read More...

Brian Atwood Genie Suede and Mink Fur Sandals

It’s all in the details with for these furry shoes, and you can bet to see furry pom-poms, furry t-straps and basically fur in lots of unconventional shoe places. Fur accessories are nothing new to footwear, but this season more designers are capitalizing on this furry add-on than in the past. This is a fun way to jazz up the ubiquitous black winter pump (even though it will cost a pretty penny), and if you care to go bold, I’m sure you can figure out which designers chose to use an eccentric dose of colored fur (cough, cough, Brian Atwood and Sophia Webster).

It’s no secret that designer shoes, in general, are expensive. It’s no secret that Giuseppe Zanotti shoes are often particularly expensive. Now add all-over crystals to the equation, and the Giuseppe Zanotti Open-Toe Ankle Boots just hit a whole new level of expensive. It’s been a while since I’ve seen a shoe this pricey, and the actual number stopped me dead in my tracks. Read More...

Valetnino Triple-Strap Sandal

A while back, we showed you photos from our trip to the Valentino Resort 2015 preview. After perusing the collection, many of you were eagerly awaiting the arrival of these beautiful shoes. Finally, you can pre-order them!

Sarah Paulson Christian Louboutin Tobbogan Pumps

Here’s actress Sarah Paulson, attending the American Horror Story: Freak Show premiere in LA, wearing a Zac Posen dress and Christian Louboutin Tobbogan Pumps. These minimalist Louboutins are a celeb stylist favorite, and while they show up on stars’ feet fairly frequently, strangely enough, they don’t appear to be available online at the moment. You can shop a broad selection of Louboutins at Net-a-Porter. Read More...

Sophia Webster Spring 2015 Feature Image

There’s no better host for a jungle rave than Sophia Webster. According to Vogue UK, Webster’s jungle-themed collection was inspired by change and how she “wanted to to move it on from the last few shows.” When compared to her bohemian-inspired pre-fall collection, Spring 2015 is about taking things in a very impactful direction.

While some of her signature silhouettes still stand, like the cutout sandal with the beaded tassel and printed flats, she amplified all the colors and patterns. Read More...
