I came across a street style photo this week of someone wearing Charlotte Olympia’s Zena boots outside the shows (NY or London I think). They were so goregous on the foot and now I can’t find the photo anywhere (if you find this photo, please send it to me!). *Update, June Ambrose just recently tweeted a photo of them*

It’s had me thinking about lattice…again. Several designers have used this technique with their own style this season. I especially love the Ralph Lauren Collection Jebria heels which feature a military-inspired cage silhouette with hand-pieced gold tone chain links. You can’t talk about latticework in footwear without mentioning Sergio Rossi; the crystal-embellished scalloped design is their signature.

This style reminds me a bit of the Jimmy Choo Eram pump from last season however this heel is more dangerous. It features a hidden platform, stud and Swarovski crystal embellished heel and almond toe. Half sizes are available in the black leather style.

Jimmy Choo continues the suede and crystal embroidery sandals from the spring collection but brings it to a whole new level. Celebrities went crazy over the Quinze embellished booties and my prediction is the new two similar versions below will also be just as hot on the red carpet. The clear platform sandal reminds me a lot of the Prada chandelier shoes. I’m also loving the lace/python peep toe bootie; it’s delicate and the color is beautiful.
