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 oh.my.god 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.
