She Said “Cited Skin”

There is something very scary (and very sexy) about a monstrous heel and no platform.

But these Alexandre Birman sandals are worth the beautiful risk. While the ankle strap, buckle and sole are all corked out, the multi-yellow and brown painted python print keeps the Italian stilettos very fashion-forward. Even better? The skins are authorized by CITES (cites.org).

She Said “Spring 2012 Shoes”

That’s right, it’s preview hour for next season! I am trend forecasting an abundance of colour come Spring 2012, and I couldn’t be more excited.

There are tons of graphic heel treatments, but I think my favourites have to be Nine West‘s fluro, horizontal-striped chunky heel. What about you?
