Atwood and YSL megapost

27 Jul

Because of my trip to London (yay!) I’m not sure when I’ll post again, so I leave you with a massive post of Brian Atwood’s pumps and YSL’s renaissance till then!

Now, the YSL part:

Obviously, YSL shoes have an evolution but also older pairs are worn again. They turned out to be proper classic designs! Are you OK with that or do you think YSL needs to release something new again?

I hope to be able to post on Thursday again, until then, good bye!

PS: If you have any (fashion related) suggestions what I should see in London next week, drop me a line! I know about the ‘Maison Martin Margiela ’20’ ‘ exhibition already, I hope to see something else as well. TY!

Return of the classics

13 May

Life is tough for me these days – for a moment I thought about taking a break from blogging but then I decided not to. It’s the island of peace for me right now.

But that’s enough about that, it’s the shoes that we want to talk about, right? Today, classic pairs are worn frequently again, I’ve made a few collages of them.

Not that long ago, there was talk about Brian Atwood‘s “Loca“; a few weeks ago model and footballer wife Sylvie van der Vaart wore it in black – Ms Diaz had a “prototype”, while Kim and Rachel donned the “Maniac” in different colors.

Also, the signature platform pumps by Casadei appeared again:

(BTW, is Rocsi wearing Charlotte Olympia?)

To get even more retro or timeless (you decide), YSL proves to be still out there:

That’s not all from Yves saint Laurent, and in addition, LC bought their new sandals – I present it among these flawless pairs:

But it won’t be an all-history post, Alexander Wang has his supporters too:

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you like what you see. I’m going to visit your lovely blogs asap!

Hate it or love it

6 May

After a not really popular post, I’m posting what you might have been looking for: shoes, shoes and shoes.

Let’s start with Balenciaga! You might already know that I love their new collection – take a look at Hanh’s post what an experience she had when she wanted to buy a pair! Anyway, the sandals look just as good as those open toe boots.

Officially it’s called the “coffee leather ankle wrap platform sandal” and it costs $995. For those who care about comfort and stability: 5” heel with 1” front platform.

With SATC 2 already in the theatres, demand should shot through the roof for these pumps that SJP wore in the movie.

You can buy it for $830 now, but be aware of the 14,5 cm heel and the 3 cm hidden platform.

I haven’t posted shoes by Nicholas Kirkwood since a while, I post pictures of Ms Blair and SJP that are a few months old, and also new pictures of SJP and Kim, who bought the fiercest pair ever!

The heels by Kirkwood for Rodarte cost around $1750!

Okay, I admit, Kirkwood’s designs might be too crazy sometimes, so let’s slow down a bit and meet a more conservative pair:

14 cm heels, prices around $1415. I thought it would cost far less, but hey, that’s capitalism 🙂

After “slowing down”, I have the sickest design of this year so far for you.

I’ve seen different blogs where many readers expressed their disgust for Versace’s new collection, escpecially about the second pair. As you can see, she dons two different pairs. Well, the latter is definitely super sexy, über-feminine, extremely high (18 cm heel, 7,5 cm platform), way too expensive ($3075), BUT I like how shocking it is. Of course, one has to be able to wear it properly, I guess C is experienced enough.

Someone just please do the Glamour Stiletto Run in these! 😀

That’s all for now, I didn’t want to have too many pictures this time 🙂
