CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTINCasanovella fringe sandals – don’t they make you want to prance & sashay around? We’re crazy for the long front fringe panel which falls nicely on the front – you can also find them in a fun textured navy variation resembling denim.
DSQUARED2 embellished black lace-up sandals – they have such a strong strappy footwear collection this season…we love all of them but especially this sexy shoe covered in gold hardware with a patent leather stitch design.
AQUAZZURATutto Buckle sandals; easily one of the best designs of the season and our personal favorite. They’re carried exclusively at MyTheresa and also available in black leather or leopard print calf hair at Moda Operandi.
GIANNICOSuper Lola nude & red lip pump; designer Nicolò Beretta picked up the award for best footwear at Vogue’s ‘Who Is On Next?’ 2015 competition and you can find several playful styles from the fall collection now stocked at LuisaViaRoma.
CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTINHoughton May white platform sandal – okay, technically this style debuted in the Marchesa Spring’15 runway show but we’re still in love with it – plus, since I live in Miami they’re an appropriate “florida winter white”. It’s also carried in black and white.

After a decade at Donna Karan as the VP of collection and refining his craft at Calvin Klein plus Alexander McQueen, among others, Paul Andrew burst onto the scene launching his namesake footwear line in 2013. Our love for his designs continue grow with the release of each new collection – we’re total fans.
This season many footwear designers and brands, from Nicholas Kirkwood to Valentino, retired the celeb-favorite pin thin stiletto opting for the return of a chunky, block heel. This trendy shape is 70s infused with a hint of modern bohemian glamour that would make Bianca Jagger proud.
We pulled 10 fabulous examples of this trend now at retail…I guess the question is: will you be swapping your skinny summer-ready stilettos for this blocky silhouette?

I wanted to write a quick post – probably the last of the year – sharing an update on the web site and life, really. This year proved to bring some difficult and trying changes but you know what? – I came out stronger, happier and full of life. I can already tell 2015 is going to be incredible and we have some fun projects in store for you! Some of you have been reading my blog for over five years (!) – I sincerely can’t thank you guys enough for the continued support.
I’m currently living in Los Angeles and started working with talented photographer Will Tee Yang. We went to go play at The Grove with a few of my favorite shoes and God bless Will for having the incredible skill to capture these photos because a model I am not.
I’m wearing the Christian Louboutin So Kate pumps and Gazolina boots:
Cheers to more shoe love ahead in 2015 and for more beautiful photography, follow Will on Instagram (real models included).
Beyoncé attended the 2014 Billboard Women in Music Luncheon wearing a merlot knotted draped dress by Haute Hippie with a thigh-high side slit. She paired it with Gucci horsebit-embellished Claudie ankle-strap sandals in brown leather. These chunky 70s’-inspired platforms don’t do anything for her outfit…and they feel out of place.
Oscar TiyeZoe cage sandals Since it’s December and the event was held in NY, I’m not crazy about an open-toe shoe however this unique tassel-embellished sandal in the warm rose gold is a playful option. P.S. – I have these shoes baby blue, j’adore!!!
Daniele MichettiSveva slingback pumps This spicy yellow snakeskin is a perfect complement for her burgundy dress. They also feature a low-cut heel counter and black woven leather trim.
Bionda CastanaDekota pump I love these femme fatale inspired shoes with sexy corset-style laces, geometric leather paneling and sheer mesh sides. Check out how they look on the foot.
Gianvito RossiCarey strappy pumps I can’t get enough of these beautiful Fall ’14 shoes in natural python with three thin buckled front straps.
Nicholas Kirkwoodcolorful pointed-toe pumps Beyoncé’s previously worn many shoes by Kirkwood and these pointed-toe heels are my wildcard choice featuring multi-color Mexican-inspired needlepoint embroidery. I like this shade of pink & aqua paired with her dress.
We may be heading into the homestretch of the dog days but our craving for all things summer – including cheery footwear, is still very much alive. Before we dive into fall styles (boots & boots galore) we want to share our favorite styles from Oscar Tiye’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection.
We’re huge fans of their bold designs and love supporting emerging brands who really bring something new to the shoe game. After being named “One to Watch” by WWD, designer Anima Muaddi went on to become a finalist for the 2014 Who is on Next? competition organized by Vogue Italia and AltaRoma.
