She Said “Metallic Mouse”

What better way to spice up your off duty outfits then these Marc by Marc Jacobs mouse ballet pumps?

The darling flats come in espresso-coloured metallic leather featuring three dimensional mouse ears and gold-tone studded detailing. The ears and two studs, along with a patch of mini studs, create the mouse face at the toes. From a distance the flats appear to be just your average edgy ballet flat, but upon closer inspection they are actually adorable and quite unique. Wearing these you will show off your playful personality while retaining a sense of toughness.

She Said “Holiday Help”

With all the shoes wandering around in this world, sometimes a woman needs some help choosing what to wear for the holidays.

Refinery29 has offered a helping hand and posted an article with their opinions on the 12 best holiday pumps this season. They include shoes for all – budget conscious or nonconscious – fashionistas, with brands from Forever 21 to Aldo to Christian Louboutin. Whether or not you actually buy the shoes Refinery29 suggests, it is a great place to get ideas. The shoes included come with a required dose of sparkles, sequins, studs, and pops of colour. That special little black dress waiting in your closet will become even more amazing once the right shoe is paired with it.

She Said “Stud”

Praise be to Alaïa. Upon seeing these, I immediately asked the boyfriend if he would purchase these absolutely breathtaking Alaïa boots for me…

He said no…which made me love them even more. The price on these boots is a mere $2,650, you know? A simple $1 a day compared to lifetime wear. The demand is in the details. A curved heel measures about 5.5-inches, which includes a 0.5-inch hidden platform. Need a little attitude in your ensemble? These gray suede boots are perfect for you. The flattened studs add just the right amount of atti-ma-tude. Even the rebels need to be fashionable, n’est-ce pas?

She Said “Skull”

Normally skulls make me think of poorly dressed children. However, these Alexander McQueen pumps are absolutely delightful.

The royal blue suede provides a lively touch of elegance against the gold studs and crystal-embellished skulls. The colour – along with the skulls – screams power. Move out of the way for the woman wearing these. The heels measures approximately 5-inches and the concealed platform is approximately 1.5-inches. These peep-toe heels embody the label’s classy yet edgy aesthetic. When wearing these, try something a little less classic from your wardrobe, ie. leather pants or a shredded cardigan. Even if you aren’t feeling particularly daring, I will bet these heels will spin your mood right around.

She Said “Jamma”

Flipping through my glossies, I came across a shoe ad (I know, a shoe ad in a magazine?!).

A dark background allowed the nude pumps to pop off the page and right into my heart. I immediately thought I must share these. Vince Camuto‘s “Jamma” pumps are dazzling. With flawlessly placed studs on the front and heel providing a punk sensation, the precious bow on the front adds a feminine touch. The leather upper is flawless and comes in three different shades: red, black, and petal. The heel measures 4.75-inches and the hidden platform at 1-inch. The perfect combination of lethal and lovely.

She Said “Lorissa”

OK, I’ve been a little bit overwhelmed with Britney Spears‘ wardrobe choices from her latest video. I have spent the last two hours trying to find the perfect studded heels.

Thank you, Mrs. & Mrs. Edelman, for Sam Edelman. His denim, studded “Lorissa” heels are perfect. The fact that the stud chaos is kept to the heel cup is wonderful. 4 1/2 inches of genius right there, girls and dolls.

She Said “Stud, Muffin”

Looks like Valentino has found the cure to the cankles – aka ankle muffin top – that plague many women.

These perfect ankle boots deliver the coveted Valentino glamour in black leather, with a 4 inch heel and light-gold pyramid stud trim. The best part? An elasticated and low-cut side that creates gorgeous curves and sexy femininity on any leg. Smart detailing.

She Said “Cork It”

Though Herve Leger is world-renowned for their bandage dresses, their heels certainly deserve some attention.

Por ejemplo, the brand’s suede and cork ankle boots seen above and below. They are architectural love with a 5 and a half inch heel made from cork, and a taupe cracked suede upper. It is rare for studs like the ones along the cut-out side partition to look more chic than freak. It’s the small details that make this wonderful bootie.

She Said “You Animal!”

At times, animal print looks like it belongs solely on street corners. So, how do we werk it without ‘working it’?

Via Emilio Pucci, of course. These animal-print suede and calf hair sandals from the designer are the perfect fashion alternative to zebra-printed pleather thigh highs. With black suede and black python-effect panels, these 5 inch heels with stud embellishments help you up your wardrobe’s ante.

She Said “Lady Peep Spikes”

KK, Christian Louboutin is a pretty flawless shoe designer. Along with most women, I feel he is the God of footwear.

So, I assume these were designed on crack? While the cracked gold leather – or “fuxia gold” as Louboutin dubs them – is gorgeous, the signature red sole and bright purple-pink studs clash worse than the bargain shoe bin at Wet Seal. I can’t wrap my head around it; a lighter, less-blue hue of pink would make this a stunning stiletto. Even with your foot covering a large section of the inner lining, you can’t escape the colour fail. 6 inches gone to waste. Tear.
