Michael Kors Platform Sandals: Such Great Heights

The Michael Kors era at Céline ended over a decade ago, and today it seems his namesake brand couldn’t be more different than the French house. But once upon a time, Michael Kors was the king of Céline, and he made the most amazing platform shoes you’d ever seen. I still have two pairs of stacked heels from his tenure, and they’re not unlike these here.

Top 5 Spring Pumps: The Higher the Heel, the Closer to God

The higher the heel, the closer to god? Absolutely! Just don’t tell your chiropractor I said that (tip: Pilates and yoga strengthen your core and back, making heels easier to maneuver). I’ve been wearing them since I was 17. When I graduated from high school, I tossed my flats and never looked back. Pumps were a part of my daily uniform at USC and continue to be today.

Maison Martin Margiela Thigh High Wedge Boot

Maison Martin Margiela Thigh High Boots: A Leg Up

Okay, thigh high is almost an understatement here. These are basically pants (albeit ones that require a nice dress and in spite of what some forgetful starlets think, a pair of panties!). Leave it to Maison Martin Margiela to have us questioning whether shoes are pants or pants are shoes.

Aperlai Geisha Doll Heels: Pretty in Parisian Pumps

Aperlai always has a masterful way of catching the attention of both Shoe Snobs and celebs alike with distinct designs you can’t find anywhere else. The Parisian brand’s most recent conquest is none other than Katy Perry, who wore designer Alessandra Lanvin’s pink Geisha Doll pumps to her new album’s release party.

Design through the Decades

Design through the Decades: The 2010s

Okay, we’re not even halfway through the decade, so there are certainly more trends to come! But we already spotted quite a few, ranging from vampy cutout shoes to simple ballet flats. It seems that we’ve finally learned to mix style and comfort. There’s a little something for everyone, whether you like a bird’s eye view atop skyscraper heels or prefer to stay grounded.

Maison des Talons

Maison des Talons: The Secret Avant-Garden

This is the most exquisite line of shoes I’ve seen in a long time. Maison des Talons designer Susanne Villiger’s awe-inspiring accents are like nothing you’ve seen before. I borrowed the Swarovski-encrusted Les Tinettes for Fashion Week (the only time I’m grateful to be a runway sample size 10!) and wore them to the Socialyte Blogger Awards.

Saint Laurent Strapped Ankle Boot: Red-Hot Riot

While doing some “R&D” on Farfetch (that’s what shopping’s called in our world), I stumbled upon these stroke-inducing Saint Laurent boots. Honestly – my heart just about stopped. When was the last time you saw something so perfect??
