She Said “Shoes, Glorious Shoes”

Sometimes, the friends of our feet make us want to break into song. Especially when owning them is as simple as pressing ‘Print‘.

Italy wearing Versace? A Louis Vuitton cake (worth getting married for)? Lethal Gareth Pugh heels? Hungry Dolce and Gabbanas? I might just re-wallpaper my bedroom.

She Said “Lace Up”

Sometimes two of my favourite types of heels run the risk of becoming very…prostitutional (trademark moi). Said shoes are a) lace ups and b) knee highs.

Somehow, these Versace sandals combine the two yet stay on the right side of ‘sex worker’. These black leather platform sandals even have a 5.5 inch heel and 1.5 inch platform. On shelf, this should land them next to the stripper heels, no? Thankfully, the designer brains have added some luxe silver hardware, a black waxed-cotton cord lace-up front and a patent-leather wrapped pin-point heel that keeps it all quite chic. Nicely played.

She Said “Under 25″

Sometimes exclusivity drives us to do crazy things (shoutout to you, Lanvin for H&M shoppers queueing overnight in freezing weather!)

One of those crazy things might be buying these. Just 24 pairs of these $1,418 Pierre Hardy heels exist in this big wide world, and one pair is on Lane Crawford fashion director Sarah Rutson‘s Christmas list. asked a few of their favorite fashion friends – including my adored duo of Rachel Zoe and Anna Dello Russo – to detail their longed-for Christmas presents, and the results are appropriately crazy. For example, Dello Russo wants a Versace gown “as green as a Christmas tree” and Zoe is wishing for a blacked-out Tesla Roadster. Not to say I’d turn either down.

She Said “Metal Versace”

Ever wanted to be in Charlie’s Angels?

Versace are in the position to make your dreams come true*. Donatella Versace does spy gear like no other with these metal-heeled leather ankle boots coming from Versace’s Autumn Winter 2010/11 collection. These boots come with a heel measuring approximately 165mm/6.5 inches with a 65mm/2.5 inch platform. Plenty of room to hide gadgets.
