She Said “Jazmyn”

In addition to flourishing my musical teenagehood, I have to give Gwen Stefani some additional props for bringing these sandals into my life.

Her label L.A.M.B. has released these sexy Jazmyn sport sandals into the shoemosphere, bringing colourblocking to a whole new level. The 4.5-inch sky blue stiletto heels feature snakeskin and perforated leather alongside patent piping accents on the straps. Buckle ‘em up, babes.

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 “Strappy Oxford”

YES. Manolo Blahnik’s Resort 2012 has been released at! Of course, I rushed to their website to check it out.

Lo and behold, my love for Oxford-style shoes has been rewarded in a gorgeous strappy sandal for Spring! Textured snakeskin meets metallic straw tweed and leather straps, ending with an elaborate lace-up front. The heel measures approximately 4-inches. Two straps wrap – luxuriously – around the ankle, which is tightened by the laces instead of clasps. It truly is a dream come true for anyone who usually sports mild mannered feet. Let your toes breathe while still keeping a studious sort of aesthetic….for almost any occasion.

She Said “Under The Sea”

It is officially cold. The winter blues may begin to set in soon. *snuggle snuggle sniff sniff*

Don’t fret, mes chèrs! These Nicholas Kirkwood metallic python platform pumps will cure your winter sadness! The colours are reminiscent of The Little Mermaid (one of everyone’s favourite Disney movies, let’s be honest). The purples and blues of the metallic python create an almost water-like appearance – a shimmer if you will. Skinny leather straps make their way through luxurious snakeskin into a slingback strap. The heel measures 5 inches with the platform at approximately 0.5-inches. The padded insole will provide the comfort you need while swimming mingling with guests at a holiday party. A sure way to brighten up the holidays!

She Said “Glazed”

The only thing better than a sprinkled glazed donut is a glazed shoe.

Monsieur Michael Kors gave us a delicious pair in these Black glazed python “Sophia” t-strap shoes. The leather uppers and inners – along with this season’s must-have snakeskin effect trim – make this heel land on my most wanted list. The buckle and peep-toe make these heels sweet and spicy, but the black suede and snakeskin pack quite the punch. The t-strap, chunky heel (measuring around 5.5 inches) and platform (measuring around 1.2 inches) make this the perfect day to night shoe. Perfect for those money-conscious ladies trying to save a dollar (or pound) or two.

She Said “Sergio’s Special”

When you are spending £500+ on a heel, it goes without saying that expectations are very high special. Designer Francesco Russo made note for the Spring/Summer 2011 collection of Sergio Rossi salience.

The entire collection is inspired to be a neo-classic object of worship, with every heel completely artisanal and hand finished. The Karung sandals – made of exotic calfskin, snakeskin, and wood – have hand pounded brass elements on the heel. The textures are unbelievably gorgeous.

She Said “Hiss Hiss, Lanvin”

While we don’t all have the chance to perform in a nude glitter bodysuit while singing “Slave 4 U” at the VMAs, we sometimes get a great opportunity to accessorize ourselves via a snake.

Lanvin are obviously going to take the cake in the snake category this season. These canvas platform wedges are that ‘big something’ you need to make a otherwise simple outfit. With a peep toe and nude silk grosgrain ribbon tie at the ankle, the (almost) 6 inch heel is supported with an (almost) 2 inch platform.

She Said “Burlesque”

While everyone is mad on Harry Potter hype at the moment, the one movie I’m incredibly excited for the release of is Burlesque with Christina Aguilera.

A life-long fan of the neo-burlesque scene, movie releases such as this only give me an excuse to find some must-have themed footwear. The ultimate in feminine glamour, Giuseppe Zanotti‘s cream snakeskin-embossed leather T-bar sandals have a five and a half inch heel, an era-appropriate round peep toe and silver buckle fastening with a partially concealed platform. No shoe more perfect.
