This dramatic design resembles the beautiful Mariposa butterfly with a high back and sculptural wing-like cut-out sides which wrap around the ankle. They also feature black leather, pointed-toe, thin leather cord laces and soft nude leather insole. Half sizes are available and it’s additionally carried in champagne and fuchsia.
It’s become tradition – every season I enjoy looking through the Accessories Index at Style.com and selecting my top 10 shoe picks.
First, these are market director Marina Larroudé’s top choices:
Here are my top picks:
I would love to know what’s on your must-have list. Sophia Webster’s embroidered boot is such a standout! Another easy addition to my list was the crystal-embellished sandal by Tabitha Simmons – it’s so stunning. Not surprisingly, Ms.Olivia Palermo has already snatched up & worn the beautiful Aquazzura Madison feather pumps.
More top shoes:
I’ve been collecting lookbooks and making notes of trends all summer – a giant fall trends post is coming up next.
I’m also working on a personal post of the shoes I’ve been wearing recently & I promise it will be posted soon. X
Miley Cyrus is featured in the June 2013 issue of ELLE UK wearing Alejandro IngelmoCollider sandals. These caged slingback heels are from the Spring 2013 collection featuring black suede and metallic gold leather details. Collider is available online in black/gold at Bloomingdales, white/silver at Shopbop and several styles at Alejandro Ingelmo.
Stacy Keibler wore Alejandro IngelmoAthena d’Orsay pumps to 2013 A&E Networks Upfront. These shoes are from the Spring 2013 collection featuring ice white patent leather, 100mm heel and open criss cross heel detail. Athena is available online in white/black/nude at Alejandro Ingelmo and black at Shopbop & Bloomingdale’s.
Ingelmo’s Spring 2013 collection is one of his best yet. This slingback is the Monica slingback featuring aqua suede, round toe and mirrored silver patent leather slingback strap. Half sizes are available. You can also find Monica in taupe at Alejandro Ingelmo.
This collection hits several Spring 2013 shoe trends (writing a post on this later today). I absolutely love the direction Ingelmo went this season. There’s lot of lattice design, strappy straps and bright, fun colors. Materials include iridescent snakeskin, metallic patent leather, leather and suede.
These shoes look like celebrity candy to me and I hope we see more of his designs on the red carpet. I’ll definitely be purchasing one of these styles…my top 3 favorites are the Boomerang, Collider and Athena.
Nicole Scherzinger was spotted wearing Alejandro Ingelmo Crosby wedges outside the ITV Studios in London. These heels are from the Spring 2012 collection featuring woven leather and hidden platform. You can find the new Crosby wedge from the Fall 2012 collection available online at Shopbop.
I really like her dark grey tweed Sandro Charcoal blouse and matching shorts however I’m baffled by the shoe choice. They’re much too heavy for this outfit and a completely different style all together. Nicole’s currently a judge on the ‘The X Factor’ UK show. Check out a preview of Alejandro Ingelmo’s Spring 2013 collection at Elyse Walker and more shoes spotted on Nicole.
ShoeScribe debuted this year & I’ve been watching this web site it for awhile. I’m very impressed with their selection; you can find designer shoes that aren’t available anywhere else online. They ship worldwide, so make sure to scroll to the bottom of the homepage & select your country.
They’re also having an amazing sale on Spring/Summer 2012 shoes & I just snagged the Calvin Klein Collection Mary Janes pumps I’ve been coveting since January (they sold out too quick on LuisaViaRoma). Unfortunately I didn’t have this promo code, but you do:
Promo Code for another 20% off:welcome@shoescribe + free standard shipping This code is valid for Europe, USA & Canada & available until June 24, type it in during checkout
I had both of the prices listed in £ and $ however I think the prices dropped this morning and it was getting too confusing. I can say that everything on this page is under $500 except the first two shoes below this sentence.
Julianne Hough wore Alejandro IngelmoSophia platform pumps to the MTV Q&A for her upcoming film ‘Rock of Ages’. These heels are from the Spring 2012 collection featuring black patent leather with a mirrored platform.
