She Said “Pump It Up”

Because I endeavour to rock black tights and heels throughout most of Winter, a new pair of purple tights has sent me on the hunt for matching heels.

And, well, these are the dream. Nicholas Kirkwood‘s raspberry-coloured glitter platform pumps may not be completely purple but the one-inch stack of glitter only further enhances the shoe, to me. The patent leather pumps feature an almond toe, an ankle strap with adjustable buckle, a thin gold 5.5-inch stiletto heel, and a whole lot of sparkle.

She Said “Reva”

With a red heel, two things come to mind: Dorothy and Little Red Riding Hood. Red, as an accessory, is always a good choice.

Jean-Michel Cazabat obviously got the message, being the designer behind these crimson Reva Mary Jane Wedges. The 4 inch wedge is beautifully sculptured, and the thin ankle strap keeps the shoe from looking heavy. The rich suede certainly doesn’t hurt things, either.

She Said “Alex Fin”

The perfect statement shoe: the Terry de Havilland “Alex Fin” platforms will surely stand out against the rest.

The black suede and contrasting electric blue snake print trim provide a vibrant distinction. While the snake print alone adds a really beautiful touch, it is the snake print fin on the back of the chunky heel that truly makes this pair of platforms stand out. The fin, reminiscent of the tip of a flame, will leave others scorched in your path. The buckled ankle strap and peep toe make it an impeccable summer to autumn heel, and the 1-inch platform gives a little break to your foot in a 5-inch heel.

She Said “Dublin”

It is not often that I find myself lusting after a flat shoe, but these boots have the golden touch.

Esquivel‘s military-inspired leather boot – the ‘Dublin‘ – certainly means business. These handmade shoes may only have a one-inch heel, but the leather base is completely covered in a high-voltage layer of gold. The double wrap-around ankle strap ties into the hue of the heel and lace-up front, making this a boot worthy of skinny jeans, dresses, and everything in between.

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 (

She Said “Javi”

Me? I love a good deal. I also happen to love wedges, so seeing them for 70% off is a double whammy.

Designer footwear for less than £30 is something of a fantasy, but these Sam Edelman Javi sandals at Shopbop are definitely for real. With a canvas cutout wedge, this 4.75-inch heel (covered in kidskin leather, might I add) is a style steal.

She Said “It Was All Yellow”

I don’t mean to live my entire life through song lyrics, but Coldplay lyrics felt like a whole lot of perfect for these hot shoes.

These major yellow leather sandals from Casadei feature a round open toe, a t-bar front, an ankle strap with a side buckle closure and a wedge heel. At 6.2 inches, these Summer-loving babies are no joke.

She Said “Mazin”

Vince Camuto’s “Mazin” pumps are rightly named. These colourblocked slingback pumps are definitely amazing.

A fresh new look is exactly what we need as the winter drags on into a gray and swirling mess. While the soft suede does include a gorgeous gray platform, 1.25 inches, the orange heel measuring 4.5-inches, and the blue upper create a lovely palette. The adorable silver buckle clasps the adjustable ankle strap. While you may be seeing more heels without a platform, sometimes keeping your feet (and legs) looking sexy for decades can change your mind. And so should this shoe. While the sky may be getting darker, your wardrobe does not have to wilt. Blossom in bright colours, starting with these Camuto pumps.

She Said “Thaddea”

Need a heel that leaves your legs looking unbelievably sexy yet still has a touch of understated glamour?

Try these Enzo Angiolini “Thaddea” pumps. With a vintage feather and jewel bouquet perched on top of a darling peep-toe, you can achieve that sleek look without appearing excessively slinky. Reviews are raving about the “freakish” comfort level of these heels. The 5-inch heel does not seem so scary with a 1-inch hidden platform. The rich suede comes in the dark purple or black colour, whatever fits your taste. The adjustable ankle strap provides wonderful support for your crazy dance moves or decoration for your crossed ankles at a charity dinner.

She Said “Robyn”

Take your look from plain to radiant by putting on these tan Robyn suede shoes by Yves Saint Laurent.

The gold and silver pleated leather wedge and platform take this shoe up a notch – goddess level. It’s simply my favorite part of this wedge. The pleats turn this wedge into a lightweight-looking shoe, like you’re walking on a cloud. The tan suede is beautiful for daywear. It also comes in black suede, which takes this shoe to a more contemporary level and perfect for nighttime soirees. The perforated detail is simply sweet when added with the ankle strap and peep-toe. The wedge measures 5.5 inches and the platform comes in at 1.2 inches. This is one fabulous wedge to brighten even the cloudiest day.
