Enzo Angiolini Yoursonly boot with glitter heel
July 27th, 2012

I recently did a post on shoes with standout details on the back of the heel and this Enzo Angiolini Yoursonly boot could definitely be added to that list.  I also mentioned in the same post that I’m not quite in fall boot mode yet, despite all of the new styles pouring into the stores right now.  Perhaps because it’s July and sweltering hot outside, but this is a nice transitional style – its slim shape and sandal-like cutouts at the top lend a bit of lightness to the look.  Also easing the transition?  The multicolor glitter-encrusted heel.  Check out the close-up:

This adds just enough color and sheen to an otherwise neutral bootie, but in a way that doesn’t take much from its overall versatility.  You can find the Enzo Angiolini Yoursonly at Endless for $149 with free shipping and you can also get it in black with a snakeskin heel.

Jeffrey Campbell Skulltini skull studded shoes
July 13th, 2012

I thought these Jeffrey Campbell Skulltini flats would be particularly appros for Friday the 13th, but not because the skull symbol might be seen as a sign of doom and gloom; rather, that it’s actually considered to be a good luck symbol for warding off bad things:

A little superstition aside, I’m finding the tiny little skulls all over this shoe pretty adorable (albeit in a slightly dark kind of way) and I’m particularly drawn to the pure white-on-white version.  It’s also available in five other colors, each available at Solestruck for $159.95.

Have a very lucky rest of the day (and a fabulous weekend)!

Shoes that WOW from behind
July 11th, 2012

It’s natural to want to put your best fashion details forward, so they can be admired when facing a person, but there’s certainly something to be said for leaving a lasting impression while walking away.  That’s why I tend to like shoes with eye-catching details placed on the back of the heel – the kind of styles that just might have you sauntering away from people way more often, but all in the name of a little harmless showing off.  For instance, we have the Sam Edelman Evan, which is an unassuming closed-toe pump in the front:

 

But it goes all-out glam in the back with its metallic and studded corset detail.

In addition to the black and gold version, which is available at Revolve Clothing for $150 or at Bloomingdales for the same price, there is also this metallic gold and silver Zinc option (also pictured at very top):

Heels.com has this one for $169.99. 

I’ve also been seriously admiring this boot lately, even though I’m so not in fall boot mode yet:

Sure, this one has standout detail in the front in the form of a dramatic spikey collar around the ankle, but it’s also got an interesting element in the back via extra-long fringe:

I’ve always admired the compelling swaying effect this type of fringe makes when the wearer is in motion and the Jeffrey Campbell Amanda Spk can be found at Lori’s Shoes in beige or black for $228.95. 

Here’s another one that’s sleek and simple up front:

But there’s a glitter party going on around back (very Miu Miu like, btw). 

You can find the Vince Camuto Hariza for $148.95 at Nordstrom.

Finally, we have the Report Signature Targee, which appears to be a tame little nude platform pump:

But it definitely shows its wild side with this fringy mane that runs along the back of the heel:

Oh yes, the element of surprise tends to leave a lasting impression.

These can be found at Lulus for $189.

Hope everyone is having a great week so far!

Sparkly multicolor shoes from Gianni Bini
July 5th, 2012

If the only thing you like better than a mix of bold colors on a pair of shoes is a mix of bold colors with plenty of all-over sparkle, then I’ve got some styles for you.  I noticed the Gianni Bini brand offers some options that provide this look and, what can I say, I love all of the shimmery colorblocking going on, particularly at sub-$100 prices.  Pictured above is the Gianni Bini Jaysie, which is primarily cool in aqua and blue, but has a bit of orange at the bottom of the heel for a dash of warm and all-over jewels for plenty of shine.

If you prefer a sandal version, the Gianni Bini Tiara has a similar mix of colors in a t-strap peep toe style.

Or, get primary in the Gianni Bini Jazlyn, which is covered in rhinestones and red, blue, and yellow colorblocking.  These bring to mind the Giuseppe Zanotti Crystallized Colorblock Platform Slingback, but with a different silhouette.

Each of these shoes is priced at $89.99 and you can find them at Dillards.

4th of July shoes in stars & stripes & red, white & blue
June 29th, 2012

It’s almost the Fourth of July for those that celebrate here in the U.S. and I think one good way to go all out and put your patriotism on display is wearing shoes with an American flag motif.  That’s why I’ve searched around for styles with good ‘ol stars & stripes and some in red, white, and blue that may not be patterned directly after the flag, but still convey the all American theme.  One option with plenty of patriotic edge is the Iron Fist Allstar (pictured above), which is available at Heels.com for $89.99 with free 2nd day shipping, meaning that there’s still just enough time if to get them by July 3rd as I am writing this now (check the shipping info at the top to get order deadlines).  Let’s check out some more Independence Day themed options:

An ongoing fave, the Irregular Choice Chica Chola with flag detail on sale for $108.95 (regularly $188) at Karmaloop.  Coupon code ALLNEW takes 15% off and gives free shipping on orders over $100 for a limited time.

Karmaloop also has the Jeffrey Campbell Perfect Shoes in Stars and Stripes for $148 (promo codes do not apply).  A couple of more JC styles with flag detail are the Jeffrey Campbell Damsel for $182 and the Jeffrey Campbell Lita for $160.

If you love the Lita, but can’t quite shell out $160, this Lita-a-like might do the trick.  The American Flag Lace-Up Bootie is on sale for $37.95 (regularly $48) at GoJane.  They also have the $35 American Flag T-Strap Platform, which looks much like the Jeffrey Campbell Foxy.

I didn’t know that RuPaul had a shoe line with Iron Fist until I saw the RuPaul’s Drag Race Patriotic Pump, which is $74.99 with free 2nd day shipping at Heels.com.

6pm has the Naughty Monkey Marionette sandal in white, tan, or navy for $48.99 with free standard shipping.

The Naughty Monkey Shine Star is sprinkled with stars all over and available in red, blue, or black for $67.99 with free standard shipping at 6pm.  A similar style is the Star Print Platform Heel in red, blue, or black for $22.40 at GoJane.

I love high heels, but many 4th of July activities require going way more comfy and casual.  That’s why I definitely like these Vintage American Flag Flip Flops for $18.50 at Cafepress.

I was also looking around Etsy for 4th of July shoe clips and came across these Star And Stripes Patriotic Shoe Clips for $40 – are these not fab?

I also love this fun idea: A pair of flip flops with large floral shoe clips, one in red and one in blue. These Flop Toppers are $17 at Etsy.  The 4th of July Perky Bow Shoe Shoe Clip is another cute option I came across for $17 at Etsy.

Of course, if you plan to order anything online for the 4th, be sure to check with the retailer to determine if your order can arrive on time.

I hope everyone has a great holiday!

On Point: Spike studded heels by Vince Camuto, Steve Madden & more
June 19th, 2012

I’m definitely a fan of spikes on shoes, but even I’ve been surprised by the longevity of the trend, at least when it comes to shoes.  It just seems to keep going and going, for well over two years by my estimations, and there are more options than ever for getting the look, from Louboutin creations to much lower-priced styles.  Perhaps people are drawn to the dangerous, rebellious vibe they convey – it’s like getting the claws out and being a bit naughty.  One option for doing just that is the Vince Camuto Jamma in leopard (pictured above), which can be found at Zappos for $149 with free shipping.  It’s got the exotic cheetah print going on and plenty of sharp spikes along the heel and vamp to add a little wild to your style.  Here are some more spiked heels currently on my radar:

Anne Michelle Sensuous 19 neutral pump with taupe spike detail for $49 at Lulus.com.

Steve Madden Awwsome glitter pumps with spike detail on preorder at Steve Madden for $149.95.  Coupon code SMSUMMER15 takes 15% off $75 and gives free shipping (exp 8/31/12).

Wild Pair Edie spike studded heels for $135 at Bakers.

Vince Camuto Mandie black pump with gold spikes for $197.95 with free shipping at Nordstrom.

Vince Camuto Madelyn spike detail pumps for $198 at Dillards.

Update: Another shoe option with spikes down the heel is the Fergie Nicki in gold or graphite for $99.95 at Nordstrom.

Update 2: The Shoe Republic Spiked Platform Pump in black or turquoise for $48 at Lulus.

I hope everyone is having a great week so far!

Shoes that Shine: Summer sandals with the mirror effect
June 13th, 2012

One trend that I’ve been loving this season is the use of super-shiny, metallic detail on shoes, particularly when the shoe is otherwise neutral, but one part is accented with highly reflective metallic material or metal plate detail.  It’s basically like shoes with a pop of color, only with a pop of shine instead, which certainly adds a nice element of flash.  I also find it particularly appros for summer, when the sun is shining and high-gloss shoes reflect that light, creating a modern, oh-so-bright effect.  If you like reflective mirror detail on shoes too, especially at a moderate price point, I’ve rounded up various options that provide the look.  For instance, the Sam Edelman Yelena (pictured above) for $133 with free 2-day shipping at Endless.  You can also shop at Belk to get them on sale for $70 and shipping is free if your order totals $99 or more.  Here are some more:

Aldo Acal on sale for $41.99 (regularly $80) at Aldo.

Vince Camuto Kipton in gold or silver for $118 with free 2-day shipping at Endless.  Also available in both colors for $118 at Dillards.

Sam Edelman Sophie for $119.95 with free 2-day shipping at Endless.

Nine West Wewantit on sale for $59 (regularly $79) in 3 colors and $79 for the gold version at Nine West.  Shipping is free for a limited time.

Steve Madden Whyknot on pre-order for $109.95 at Steve Madden.  Coupon code SMSUMMER15 takes 15% off and gives free shipping (exp. 8/31/12).

Aldo Skillings on sale for $45.49 (regularly $90) at Aldo.

Nine West Cmon on sale for $49 (regularly $89) in 3 color options at Nine West.  Shipping is free for a limited time.

Happy Wednesday!
