Amazon lace-up sandal bootie | 4″ heel | available online in nude at Shopbop

I first featured these in my “shoe crush” post earlier this fall. They’re from the beautiful Cruise 2013 collection and although they were designed in several colorful snakeskin styles, the nude is my favorite. They feature nude leather, skinny leather laces and back-zip closure. Half sizes are available.

Fun fact; when I was checking out this photo shoot of Lady Gaga’s sister, Nicole, via The Cut, I spotted her wearing these sandals. You can see what they look like on the foot : )



Taylor Swift wore Jimmy Choo Torte peep-toe platform pumps to the 2012 Z100′s Jingle Ball in NYC. These shoes are from the Cruise 2013 collection featuring black suede and gold mirrored leather platform. Torte is available online in black at ShopSavannahs and nude suede at Jimmy Choo/Jimmy Choo UK.

Taylor branched out from her usual go-to girlier dress choices and wore a LBD by David Coma which fit her perfectly. Other accessories included a bright red lip and House of Lavande diamond earrings.

She’s also worn the a similar slingback style, Frosting, to an event last week. Check out more shoes spotted on Taylor.

**Shopbop now carries the Sexy Thing, Sexy Star, Very Sexy!**

I first saw this Cruise 2013 collection for pre-order on Moda Operandi this summer. This collection is beautiful and very wearable. The chic Giovanna Battaglia is a big fan of ‘s shoes and so is Nina Garcia.

What I love: the colorful snakeskin, soft suede, small laser-cut star details, string tie closures…there are many different styles I love – and want!

My favorite designs: the Amazon (can’t decide between the nude & blue), Very Sexy in blue and the Sexy Star in pink.

I also featured the nude Amazon sandal in my recent shoe crush post.

Look for this collection available online around the end of November. Until then, you can shop the fall collection online at Shopbop, LuisaViaRoma & Saks Fifth Avenue.

Which styles strike your fancy?

I wanted to share my latest shoe crushes and I narrowed it down to 11 I really like. Most designs are from the fall or resort collections. I started putting this post together and realized that boots will have to be another post all together!

They’re in random order and I linked to the retailer if they’re available online:


Giuseppe Zanotti satin stripe pump; available online for pre-order at Bergdorf Goodman
I featured these in the recent resort post and think they’re so stunning! They feature tropical flowers and emerald cut crystals.


Saint Laurent Jane ankle-strap sandal; available online for pre-order in black, red & gold at YSL
I may have found the perfect ankle-strap sandal! I tweeted about these shoes awhile ago and they quickly became a favorite. 


Amazon nude leather sandal, from the Cruise 2013 collection
These sandals are also available in red, yellow, blue, pink and metallic python. I’m still debating between the blue or nude. I would love to wear the nude with a dark pedicure!


Giuseppe Zanotti for Anthony Vaccarello pump; available online at Colette & Ekseption
These are my strappy heaven plus I think the Zanotti x Vaccarello collab is a brilliant match. Jessie J wore a metallic version recently in Elle UK.


Casadei Blade black satin sandal; available online at TheCorner
I’ve wanted these for quite awhile…they will be on my list(s) until I get them! Okay, these or the teal Blade sandal from the spring collection.


Pierre Hardy sporty snakeskin bootie; available online at TheCorner
I instgrammed these booties awhile ago and they finally appeared online. Naomie Harris wore them to the ‘Skyfall’ photo call in London.


Brian Atwood Dama pink satin sandal; from the Fall 2012 collection
Aren’t these amazing?! They were first featured in my fall favorites post and I haven’t stopped thinking about them.


Walter Steiger Solo lace-up platform bootie; from the Fall 2012 collection
I love the fit and quality of Steiger’s shoes, I can wear them all night. These booties feature small silver studs and the signature claw heel.


Charlotte Olympia Astra platform pump; available online at Charlotte Olympia
These feature glitter sprinkled snakeskin with moon and cloud detailing and a giant shooting star across the toe. I love the grey & blue colors – this shoe is fun & wearable.


Roger Vivier black satin ribbon bootie; available online at MyTheresa
These booties first debuted in a green satin, which made my top 10 list, then appeared in purple on LuisaViaRoma and now they’re available in black! I love how they wrap around the foot.


Giuseppe Zanotti nude t-strap sandals with gold pyramid studs; available at Net-A-Porter
The nude version is exclusive to Net-A-Porter and of course selling out quickly. The black suede version is available at FarFetch and Giuseppe Zanotti.
