Foot Fetish

Shoes shoes shoes...I love shoes, la lala lala. If I could only buy one thing for the rest of my life, it wouldn't be clothes, it wouldn't be bags, it wouldn't be jewellery, it'd be shoes- a girls best friend! These are my favourite shoes shown throughout fashion month. There were certainly other shoes I was impressed with (think Chanel's cut in half heels, Galliano's insane wooden platform things, etc), but these are the ones that I would actually wear.

Judging by the first set, you can certainly see my love of lace-up and buckled shoes. The Hermes pair are rather similar to my own Kurt Geiger shoes, except they have a peep-toe. The Chloe Sevigny for OC pair are actually wedges, and have a hell of a lot of buckles. I freaking love them. Next up, something a bit more feminine and romantic, the Caroline Herrera pumps have rather lovely copper rose embellishments. The Diors have an interesting horn shaped heel, a hidden platform (which I don't think I own an example of yet), and they lace-up, therefore, they are an automatic win. Lim's booties are a combination of all things I love in footwear. The Pucci stilettoes leave me speechless. Its refreshing to see a shoe without a platform, there's nice brogue style perforations (always a good thing), patent leather and look at the buckles on them! If I had to pick a favourite, I'd choose these. They'd be a pain in the arse to buckle up and un-buckle again, but oh so worth it. Moving on...McQueens shoes featured amazing little curved platforms, and the boots had really sinister rivets along the black seam and down the heel. Just what I need.

Below, clockwise from top left: Dolce and Gabbana, Chloe x2, Louis Vuitton, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Zac Posen x2.

I finally found a picture of the Dolce and Gabbana wedges I mentioned in yesterdays post. I know I saw a clearer picture somewhere else, but I can't find it so this one will have to do. One of the handbags is also shown. The Chloe shoes are adorable. Nice to see no platform, and bows on shoes is always nice. Something about the triple tiered nature of the bows and embellishment is winning me over. The Vuittons I like from behind, but to be honest I'm not sure if I'd like them from the front, as I can't find a clear enough picture. The velvet ties, conical heel with gold balls, and lace over satin is all looking very promising though. The black and blue suede pumps by Lim are nice, but in reality I was probably swayed by the overall image of lace socks and nonchalantly cuffed trousers. From what I can see, the shoes appear to have a steel capped toe, which makes them extra special, and in all probability I would wear them. The final two pairs are by Zac Posen. The first red satin heels are pretty standard shoes with ankle ties. It's the little leaves on the ties that make the shoes just that little bit more special and covetable. I wouldn't normally go for this type of sandal, but the leaves really do if for me. Finally, a little bit odd, but in a good way...burnt orange velvet, clear plastic, and crystal embellishment. Sounds wrong, but they're really rather endearing. Oh wow, thats a lot of writing. I didn't know I could talk about shoes so extensively.
