She Said “Buckle Up”

Dominatrix. Femme Fatale. Just a couple words one may describe the ultra-sexy and badass woman choosing to wear these “Luciabooties from Bionda Castana.

Eleven buckle straps wrap seductively around the shoe. The silver buckles, in turn, create the perfect edgy effect. But wait, these booties are not just a thing of beauty; inside these dark and dangerous heels is a toasty shearling lining – perfect for keeping you warm during these winter months. The almond toe creates a long line without having to go for a full pointed toe. The heel is an approximate 4.7 inches. Strap yourself into a pair of leather pants and buckle up for a wild night.

She Said “Milford”

Delightfully, this – and next season’s – tribal trend that has popped up have left many of us wanting to try something different.

There comes a time when you have to put down your basic nude pumps and step into a totally different tune. The Burberry Prorsum “Milford” sandals will do just the trick. A raffia print patent leather sandal from the Burberry Prorsum Cruise 2012 collection can lead you on the right track to creating a versatile tribal wardrobe. The t-strap provides the shoe with the vintage look I usually turn to, but the print and criss-crossings of the straps take a scene-stealing turn. The heel measures 5.5 inches with the platform measuring 1.5 inches. A très parfait look to bring some wow to your work week.

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 “Try The Trend”

You know how some people have ‘colours’? Yellow is certainly not mine. I’m not sure if it’s my mix of nationalities, but it makes my skin look very, very dull.

Yellow, however, is a colour blocking essential, and I always say “if you’re not ‘right’ for a trend, try it on your feet”! A prime option are these yellow Miss Me “Skyler” platforms which strap you in and upgrade you to supermodel height with over 5 inches of heel. The platform will keep you sturdy, and the £25 spent will keep your wallet bulging.

She Said “Cro-ssoni”

A key item in every woman’s wardrobe should be a comfortable, sexy shoe that will work across their entire wardrobe.

While black pumps are the standard choice, a multi-coloured option is much more fun! My pick for Summer are these crochet-knit espadrilles from Missoni: the thick base makes them super easy to walk in, while the knotted straps threaded through gold rivets are a total departure from your ‘basic black’. Love them.

She Said “Sandals”

As much as I adore my heels, there are certain occasions where they just won’t work. As I’m two weeks away from moving to Thailand, I am on the search for the perfect beach shoes.

While these Pedro Garcia sandals are steep at £450, they are the type of shoes that would perfectly accent a tan while protecting me from sand nasties. The tan leather is equipped with an open toe, a slight wooden heel, a designer logo-embossed sole, and silver crystal embellishment on satin criss-cross straps. Totally worth the dineros, right?
