She Said “Best of Milan”

Milan Fashion Week brought the world enticing new pieces for Spring/Summer 2012.

The runways were rife with beautiful and enthralling shoes. For today’s edition of She Said Shoes, I have picked my favorite five to share with you!

Starting with number five, it is Antonio Marras’ yellow scale heel. It appears simple and straight to the point, but the scales and strap, along with a peek of bone, urge a second look.

At number four, it is Fendi’s leather top, chunky heel. The punctured leather with the black and white stripes of the platform and heel come together to make the perfect day shoe.

Etro brings us dear number three. With a geometrically shaped heel and a triangular gold buckle, this shoe is full of surprises!

Prada is number two for me with their 50’s car inspired shoes, especially this light pink and green wedge. The flower on the top mixes perfectly with the taillight trinkets on the back, creating a look that transpires through time.

And number one is (drum roll) Aquilano.Rimondi’s python and suede heel! This gorgeous shoe has five straps, two in the python material and three silver straps that swirl into the shoe almost snakelike. The suede part of the shoe has an almost-sweetheart neckline, making the heel super femme but slightly dangerous.

Enjoy creating your wishlist, darlings.

She Said “Golden”

Full speed ahead with some wedges love! Anyone ready for some Yves Saint Laurent genius?

Here you go! New for the season – black suede, gold leather trims, and patent leather wedge heel. How could you possibly want more? I am obsessed with the robo-tronic feel of the cutout sides, split front and heavy metallic aesthetic. They are absolutely Fashion Week Ready.

She Said “Friends In High Places”

When you are a designer with just three seasons into the fashion world, it is essential to have friends in high places.

Marlon Gobel has found a great one in world-famous shoemaker Christian Louboutin. After Marlon used a pair of Louboutins for his only women’s look last season, Christian caught sight and fell in love with his style to such a degree that he offered to outfit the boys for Fall/Winter 2011. That’s right, Gobel’s models will wear shoes from the new male division of the Louboutin empire for February’s New York Fashion Week. That is a definite first for the creator of perfect stilettos.
