Colossal Spring & Fall 2013 Shoe Post

Ashley-ShoeRazzi-summer-2013

I realized I haven’t posted about any of my new shoes since March so I figured it’s probably time for an update. I can’t believe it’s already December! The year has flown by and I’ve been enjoying every minute of it. After an adventurous summer trying to figure out where to call our new home, we settled in Miami Beach a couple months ago. It’s unlike any other place in the country; life is sunny, spicy and full of (deco) art here.

Since the Footwear News conference in May, I traveled a bit throughout the summer and attended FFANY in June where I met many lovely designers including Gio Diev, Charlotte Olympia, Amina from Oscar Tiye, Natalia from Bionda Castana, and Jerome C. Rousseau.

I also met fashion writer & editor Valeria Boucas while previewing Jerome C. Rousseau’s collection. I was flattered when she asked to write a small piece about ShoeRazzi on her new blog – you can read more about my blog’s beginnings at Valeria Boucas.

Here’s a look at the shoes I’ve added to my collection:

Valentino-Clear-Rockstud-pump
(If you ran into me this summer, odds are I was wearing one of these outfits. In the left photo I paired them with a Zara top & Free People cutoffs and to the right, a Joie jacket worn with a Helmut Lang sleeveless knit + Rag & Bone leather shorts.)

I adore these Valentino clear Rockstud strappy pumps which were one of the first shoes I purchased last season. I still can’t bring myself to wear a full on PVC shoe but this design allows my feet to breathe. They’re now available in black leather with smokey PVC straps and black studs at Forward by Elyse Walker.

The first shoe pictured is the Amma embellished sandal bootie from Sophia Webster’s debut collection (found at her online store). I love the ikat-printed taffeta and multicolor beaded trim.

The Manolo Blahnik Charly sandals were a super lucky find on eBay! They’re from an older collection in black canvas embellished with two oversize buckled straps.

On a NY trip I visited the Jean-Michel Cazabat flagship store and purchased these Omayra thin strappy sandals in fuchsia snake-print leather.

Christian-Louboutin-Stardust-pump

J’adore these stunning Christian Louboutin Stardust pale pink satin pumps with a crystal-embellished black lace overlay. Snagged at a special sale, I plan to wear these boudoir-inspired pumps with a floor-length black silk satin dress.

Manolo-Blahnik-Anastasia-pump

This Anastasia multicolor flag-trimmed cutout pump was my favorite style from Manolo Blahnik’s Fall 2011 collection. I think they look even cuter worn with black stockings.

Charlotte-Olympia-silver-Belinda-platform-booties

This is the most romantic and opulent shoe I own! These Charlotte Olympia Belinda platform sandals sold out almost immediately but I found them at Neiman Marcus in Las Vegas. They feature laser cut metallic silver leather and you can find them in white suede at Matches, Net-A-Porter and Charlotte Olympia.

Roberto-Cavalli-Spring-2013-ankle-strap-sandal

This is a classic ankle-strap by Roberto Cavalli embellished with a gold-tone sculpted heel, ankle bijoux and metallic pointed-toe which juts out from underneath the small platform. They appeared later in season on Cavalli’s web site but I purchased them at the Las Vegas boutique.

Shoerazzi-summer-2013

I rarely feature flats but now that I walk everywhere here in Miami, they’re an important wardrobe staple. Chanel espadrilles (featured in my last update post) are a perfect shoe for this city and I also wear Converse sneakers, Nikes & Christian Louboutin ballet flats.

Converse-suede-fall-2013

This is the epitome of a “fall” look here in Miami (no jacket required!)…I’m wearing a sleeveless knit dress from Bank Fashion & suede Converse sneakers from Size UK.

Del-Toro-loafers
Del Toro slippers worn with a white Versus Versace dress from a few season ago and IRO grey denim top, Prada bag.

Del Toro is a luxury shoe brand based here in Miami. They make shoes for both men and women and have a fresh design approach blending creative designer Matthew Chevallard’s Italian heritage with a Palm Beach prep aesthetic.

I’m wearing pretty pink & white scrunched gingham slippers featuring the signature red grosgrain heel stripe. Del Toro carries sneakers, drivers, espadrilles, Chelsea boots and more. I can’t wait to visit the boutique here! There are also several customizable options and I think they’re a perfect Christmas present.

The Spring 2014 collection is adorable and available for a limited time on pre-order at Moda Operandi:

Christian-Louboutin-So-Kate-pumps
I’m wearing the ‘So Kate’ paired with a printed Equipment top and Vince textured leather leggings.

I grabbed these So Kate pumps in black leather at the Christian Louboutin boutique in SoHo. Many readers have asked about the fit compared to the Pigalle…So Kate has a different toe box, vamp, stiletto shape and unlike the Pigalle, it doesn’t have the elastic band in the back of the heel. I appreciate both classic styles and love the sleek long toe on the So Kate.

They’re currently available in python-faience at Saks Fifth Avenue and several other styles at Christian Louboutin.

Sofia-Webster-hologram-shoes-Fall-2013-sandals
Sophia Webster sandals worn with a Lamb Chop cropped sweater & Zara leather pencil skirt.

I paid a visit to the Saks Fifth Avenue 10022 SHOE floor the day these Sophia Webster Leoni booties arrived. They’re from the Fall 2013 collection featuring hologram leather, black embroidery and 100mm heel. Leoni is available at Saks Fifth Avenue, Net-A-Porter and Sophia Webster (also in black suede).

Christian-Louboutin-Psycho-suede-leather-boots

It hasn’t been cold enough to wear these Christian Louboutin Psycho boots yet but I’m bringing them along for our winter travels. They’re from the Fall ’12 collection in black suede with an almond toe and swirled panels of black leather.

Roger-Vivier-Prismick-sandals
Roger Vivier sandals wore with an older See by Chloé cutout dress and Chanel Boy bag.

It was love at first sight after seeing these Roger Vivier Prismick t-strap sandals on Emma Stone. They feature a tapered t-strap, panels of stone leather and textured yellow leather on top of black suede and 120mm heel.

Oscar-Tiye-Casanda-booties

Oscar Tiye is my current brand crush. We’ve spotted their styles on Zoe SaldanaJulianne Hough and Hailee Steinfeld. I’m wearing one of the signature designs, Casandra, from the Fall 2013 collection in black leather with a lace-up front, cutout leather straps, suede trim and 110mm heel. The fit is amazing and with a 4.3″ heel, I can wear these all night. Casandra is available at LuisaViaRoma and Antonioli.

Thank you for you continued readership and I will try and share more personal posts in 2014. In the meantime, I post snapshots of my shoes more frequently on Instagram.
