Spice up your outfit!

26 May

Much-much later than I expected, finally I’m posting shoes again! As weeks went by, I missed a lot of action, but now I’m trying to make up for it. In this post, there are 10 pairs of shoes which I think really stand out from the crowd.

To begin with, here’s my muse Olivia Wilde and this unique pair by Aperlai:

Ms Wilde was on fire around that time (wildefire, haha), these Brian Atwood heels are one of a kind:

Speaking of Brian Atwood, his summer-ish heels have hit the stores and Emma Roberts decided to don the Bellini:

If Olivia Wilde was on fire, the same goes for Rihanna. Her shoe closet must be growing day by day! Here’s Riri in the thigh-high boots by Christian Louboutin that she wore here before:

These are much more sophisticated shoes by Azzedine Alaia:

Since she’s a real fashionista, one can’t be surprised to see her wearing sandals for Alexander Wang‘s Spring-Summer 2012 collection:

Casadei have upped their game lately. These pumps worn here by Lauren Conrad could remind us of their trademark platform pumps:

Kim Kardashian became a huge fan of the Casadei “Blade” pumps, she posted lost of pictures from that night on her Instagram account.

However, she is still a huge supporter of Christian Louboutin’s work. The “Isolde” is a breathtaking pair for sure:

The Pigalle-based “Un Bout” is a hit this year. Apparently not just Kim, but also Elle MacPherson and Brooklyn Decker like these ankle strap sandals too:

This is for now, I hope you like what you see. Which one is your favorite pair?

It’s almost winter

Today is supposed to be Polyvore day and indeed it is! I haven’t used that fantastic service for a while, but there’s no better way to showcase a few shoes. Since winter is just around the corner, it might be appropriate this time to see what choices you have for this season. Well, if you happen to have that amount of money – anyway, let’s just drop those jaws 🙂

The boots in the outer circle are for the colder days – yet I’d say, be careful if there’s ice on the road.

Clockwise, starting at “1 o’clock”: ‘Iris’ by United Nude, Versace, ‘Chippy’ by Stuart Weitzman, Lanvin (not the one for H&M), ‘Tundra’ by Christian Louboutin, Burberry, Brian Atwood, Azzedine Alaia, ‘Polina’ by Alexander Wang, Alexander McQueen, Alejandro Ingelmo, ‘Admire’ by Acne.

I simply had to include a few more heels in this post, those are the three pairs in the middle. If winter does not affect you too much, these are the must-haves for these months: the “Palais Mohawk” suede pump by YSL ($1.200), then there is the studded T-bar lizard pump by Valentino ($1.300) and the fab spine pump by Dsquared2 ($1.275).

Polydress et le cadeau

30 Aug

This is the last weekend of August…it’s time for me to show my idea of the dress of August.

This is the last weekend of August…it also means that a lot will change the next week: officially, Summer ends and Autumn aka Fall begins, and a lot of us will go to school/university again, etc.

I thought September isn’t that cold yet, that’s why it might be okay to change the shoes only, not the whole dress.

Click here to have all the information about the used items. In keywords, the shoes of the Summer are presented by Azzedine Alaia, Dolce and Gabbana, Givenchy, Nicholas Kirkwood and Camilla Skovgaard, while I’ve chosen the following ankle boots for September: Georgina Goodman, Christian Louboutin, Givenchy, Miu Miu and Balmain.

Yes, I know I haven’t put too many casual dresses together 🙂 Last Sunday, I’ve criticised other’s outfits, now it’s your turn to criticise mine!

However, that’s not all for today.

My beloved girlfriend celebrated her n-th birthday [ 😉 ] this month, and this time it was only this one little fashion related present among the gifts:

Sorry for not having real life shot of the hair clip, but it would have been risky to post it before her birthday as she checks this blog quite frequently lately. She’s more than a thousand kilometres away now, but maybe she’ll send a picture if it.

This jewellery set, called “1001 Nuits” has also rings, bracelets, earrings, necklaces and brooches, maybe I should get the whole collection during the next few years. But sshhhshhhh, let’s keep it between you and me 😉

Hello and welcome to today’s post, in which I present works of two, rather exotic designers.

First, there is Azzedine Alaia. We all know about the brand, we all know, they have some really interesting  shoes, but they are so rare, you don’t see them as often as Jimmy Choos. This is why it’s such a pleasure to present you a pair of their latest sandals:

Really high heels, right? No worries though, there is a platform that helps you to walk on the 5″ heels if you’ve bought them for $920.

Still Miss Congeniality, but this time, she has something even more extraordinary to show you:

She seems to have a thing for platform sandals 🙂 The facts of this shoe: 1,25″ platform, 5.25″ heel, $595.

Still Bally, but this time…it’s Hayden who shows them to the world:

The facts are quite the same for this sandal as for the Ilya; sorry for the different colored piece, I couldn’t find any in gold.

I’ll be back on Sunday, take care 🙂
