Sophia Webster Kendra bootie | 4.5″ /110mm heel | available in blue leather at Net-A-Porter & Farfetch and in black leather at Forward by Elyse Walker & Neiman Marcus for $750.00

We are loving these new Sophia Webster Fall 2016 booties! Perfect for enhancing your simple-chic ensembles, Kendra is cut from blue & black suede with leather intricately designed to resemble a vintage brocade pattern. Our favorite part is the chunky 110mm heel that is encrusted with colorful crystals and resin beads. The zipper is located on the side for an easy slip on. Pair these heels with black  skinny jeans, a halter tank and cropped leather jacket.



Chloé Harper ankle boot | 3″ / 75mm heel | available at Barneys, Matches, Farfetch and Browns Fashion for $1125.00

The dark yet sassy Gothic Glam trend is coming back this Fall season. On the runways we are seeing lacquered sky-high chunky platforms, chokers, leather jackets paired with fishnets and negligee dresses/skirts. Harper gives us a punk-gothic vibe with smooth black leather, a lace-up ribbon ankle tie, inner side zipper and stacked block heel. If you’re feeling a sassy-yet-gloomy kind of way pair these boots with a signature leather jacket, fishnet tights and velvet choker.

For Charlotte Olympia’s Pre-Fall 2016 collection, a 1927 sci-fi film Metropolis is behind the inspiration.  From this collection titled “Mechanix” we see elegant shoe styles transformed with colorful network of cogs and wheels plus intricate circuit board embroidered prints. Electra features a crisscross vamp with a slingback strap, side buckled closure and chunky 40mm platform. We love these heels paired with a simple flirty layered skirt or vintage combo dress.

They’re not only called “dance shoes” because you wear them while you bust a move to your jam, but they can also earn that description when just getting a glimpse of the pair literally invigorates you to do a happy dance. Whether you’re on a dance floor or not, you’d love to get your feet into Tom Ford’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection as it hits refresh on disco-glam footwear.

Discover fun, feminine and opulent shoes but with a punkier aesthetic in the form of metallic printed croc, cool cut-outs, spike heels and sexy pleats. The brazen collection boasts of a color scheme befitting of a woman ready to conquer the world, but with an unapologetic need to party. Yellow, silver, light pink, fuchsia, and gold are paired with glitzy metals and hair-calf prints, resulting in statement shoes that would make for an unforgettable spring and summer sartorial season.

The Hand Painted Open Back Ankle Strap Pumps meet the criteria of a power shoe –a sharp, pointed toe, a low spike heel, a striking animal print glistening in gold and fuchsia metals plus ankle and back straps are the perfect combination of sassy and sexy, commanding and seductive.  

We may have a longstanding love affair with classic pumps, but Tom Ford’s twist on the staple shoe has gotten as wanting to play footsie (literally and figuratively) with the Metallic Printed Croc Cut-Out Heel Pumps. In stunning silver, gold and light pink, these babies would look ultra-sleek when worn with cropped pants or to jazz up a little black dress. The low spike heel creates a voluptuous curve, creating a sexy silhouette despite its shortage in height.

And despite our love for color, black will always hold a special space in our shoe-obsessed hearts. The calf leather Frayed Satin Spike Heel Pump with its unravelled detailing lends a lovely contrast to the gold spike heel –perfect for a day-to-night shoe. The Pleated Wrap Sandal is perhaps our favorite –the wrap-around effect of the pleated viscose and seta fabrics along with the architectural block heel will definitely add extra s spring to our step (pun intended) this season.
