She Said “Snakeskin Colourblock”

Be the beholder of every eye in these B Brian Atwood snakeskin colourblock pumps. Immaculate shades of fuchsia, teal and red come together in perfect unison to create one beautiful pump.

The fuchsia snakeskin upper is amazingly cohesive with the rest of the leopard print shoe. A 5.5-inch heel is covered in teal leopard print, while the red leopard print snakeskin island platform gives another 1-inch boost. To tie the look together the pump is trimmed out in natural leopard print which also includes a leopard print sole. If you are looking for a fabulous transition-into-fall piece, look no further than this colourblock masterpiece.

She Said “Bardot”

The Shoe Gods are talking to us, ladies! After yesterday’s big sale find, I just found these Rachel Zoe heels for 70% off!

The stylist/designer is famous for her vintage-inspired pieces, and these leather platform sandals are no exception. The “Bardot” heels rock a honey yellow hue, woven detailing, and a buckle at the ankle. With almost a 2-inch platform, these 5.5-inch heels are a walk in the retro park.

She Said “Oh, Bui Bui”

Lady Barbara Bui is playing with some interesting techniques, here.

Along with her black suede and python print (which pull in some beautiful charcoal tones), there is a pale pink hue that mirrors the leather insole of these high heeled sandals. It’s a 6-inch heel, but with a 1.5-inch platform, it’s not too bad. ;)

She Said “Edith”

Occasionally, a person finds a shoe so chic it is destined to make it onto the Christmas list.

The “Edith” platform pump, brought to us by Loeffler Randall, is just the shoe. A charming round-toe pump swathed in yellow-striped, snake-embossed leather. The chunky heel measures approximately 4.33 inches including a hidden platform measuring nearly 1-inch. The covered heel is delightfully chunky, so whether you decide to wear these to work or to play, the shoe should remain comfortable. Take a break from your basics by taking a chance on something extraordinary for your closet.

She Said “Embellished”

When thinking about “embellishments”, the items which usually comes to mind include jewels, tassels, beading, or feathers.

I feel that calling Alexander McQueen’s wedges (seen here) “embellished” nearly sounds commonplace; much too normal to give justice to this voluptuous heel. With gold, black, and silver crystal stones wrapping around your ankles and freshly manicured toes, you will dazzle even the most determined Scrooge over the holiday season. Like wearing jewellery on your feet, the curved heel measures 5.3 inches and acts as a statement for the avant-garde. This season, there aren’t many other shoes that offer such elegance, in reality, when seeming so simple at first glance.

She Said “Glitter”

Did you know: glitter, when done tastefully, is one of the most fabulous ways to upscale your wardrobe.

One of my go-to glitter colours (the possibilities are endless, it seems) seems to be a light, dusty pink. When I’m staring at these Marc Jacobs platforms, however, the gold is pulling me in all on it’s own. The golden heel and platform have that touch of Hollywood glamour that sometimes gets lost in translation. Brown leather straps, entwined with thin gold strands, wrap beautifully around the top of the foot. The mix of brown and gold keep things neutral, even though they are glitter-packed. The heel measures 4.5-inches and the platform measures 1-inch. With the colour palette of this shoe, Marc Jacobs created a glitter heel that could be worn with an array of looks.

She Said “Nude Fall!”

Being swamped with Fashion Week/Fashion Month for the past two weeks has affected my beloved blog schedule. Obviously, you guys deserve a sneak peak into Fall/Winter 2011.

United Nude are quickly becoming my go-to for the shoe-vant garde; designer Rem D. Koolhaas seemingly missed out on an incredible career as an architect (not that I’m complaining). Best part? The platform and thickness make the exceptionally non-conservative heel extremely comfortable. Win!
